13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I liked the teacher's honest interest and effort into the class and the subjects we went through!
I liked that the assignment was a weekly online assignment and a discussion, it was easy to remember what i needed to do.
She challenged you to make sure you understand the course material.
I like the discussions we do and the videos that you post because I learn a lot of new things everyday.
I liked the Chapter on the female reproductive system. I enjoyed learning and watching online videos.
Learned a lot from this course.
Links that was associated with the chapter, it was very interesting. There is a lot I learned from the video and chapters.
Cheryl was extremely helpful.
I liked the group discussions. It was enjoyable and the material was very informative. Homework is also enjoyable. It wasn't too stressful, which I'm thankful for. I love the textbook for this class. It has great info which I found very useful and is one of the few textbooks I am deciding to keep.
I really like how her homework and testing procedures were consistent and predictable. Whereas some other online courses I've had can be confusing and all over the place with some assignments due on wednesday or randomly on friday along with the sunday weekly assignments. I felt like those random due dates were games played by the instructor to see if were paying attention and logging in daily instead of focusing on us retaining the material. I found Cheryl's syllabus to fit perfectly with my schedule as a busy adult (which is why I took online instead of in person classes to fit my schedule not the instructor) and allowed me to thrive in the class and soak up the material more willingly.
I enjoyed this course very much. I especially enjoyed the weekly videos we got to watch, it made the material easier to understand. I also enjoyed interacting with my fellow students via weekly discussions.
I enjoyed watching the video's every week and sharing my mana'o with the class. It was like a self teaching exercise.
I liked the setup of the assignments which involved answering questions regarding a patients diagnosis. for example the extra credit that was offered. i liked having questions that required critical thinking rather than reading the answer from a book.
I really enjoyed the discussion board. Everyone had a lot of helpful information to share as well as our own thoughts. I thought that Cheryl did an awesome job being a big part of the discussion and helping with any questions that we had.
All of the assignments were directly from the assigned material to be covered. They were up front and not at all trying to trick us in any way. As long as you followed the weekly assignments, the quizzes were just a test to see that you learned what was asked of you to learn. It was very much appreciated.
I really enjoyed the videos we watched for our class discussions. It made it easier to learn about the subject.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
No, great teacher.
Have different types of assignments.
N/A
Course is well taught and I do not see anything that may need improvement.
none
Hopefully there can be a physical lecture class on this subject in the future. I enjoyed this online course but I think I would have enjoyed it more in a classroom.
Nope
None
make it more critical thinking based.
Nothing Cheryl had everything in order. Excellent work Cheryl would love to take more classes from her.
I think if she uses all of the suggestions we gave her from this class, that this class will be superb. Really enjoyed the format of the weekly assignment towards the end of the class!

17. What did you like most about your online course experience?
This could have been a very difficult class to take online, however it was well planned and executed. I enjoyed this class very much.
The teacher gave us heads up about everything that we would be doing. I enjoyed the teacher's feedback on our discussion board.
i liked the reading material.
She always asked for feedback on how to improve the course instructions to make sure we were able to get the best out of our time.
I like how everything assignment is space out so you have time to do it.
I liked watching the Online videos
This is a great course. More so due to it is an online class. You may take this course even if you have so little time. The reason I took this class was it is my requirement and I have so little time to attend a sit in class.
The information and videos provided were well prepared and helped me learn a lot on the subjects the class was learning.
The simplicity of her syllabus and text.
I have always enjoyed online classes because it gave me the freedom to complete my assignments at my convenience.
cheryl was attentive to my questions and i really like that feedback was given on each discussion on the gradebook
That the teacher was very much involved with the course especially it being online sometimes online classes can be more robiotic than anything and Cheryl made it feel like an ohana class
It was nice to be able to work and complete the required tasks when I was able to and found time to. It is so hard to attend traditional classes when you have a family and career such as mine. Being a firefighter really helped in that we have some down time that allowed me to complete most of the assignments at work

22. Other comments:
Best teacher i've had at HCC.
it was an overall good class.
Worked well with my other MOA Certificate classes, I think you should continue to offer these classes all together it really helped.
Great professor!
Very good class! I would recommend taking this class and Mrs. Aruga to anyone who was interested in taking a NURS 100 course.
Great course.
Keep up the good work! I enjoyed this class.
I thought Cheryl Aruga's syllabus was excellent with due dates and assignments in the same place and same time so we could focus on learning the material. I had an online psychology class last semesterwith Willow Aurela and I found her rndom and constantly changing assignments impossible to navigate especially with my busy work schedule at the time which gave me time to study my text but not always time to get to my computer to play acedemic internet twister, which I found strangely a kin to a psychological game, just my opinion.
Thank you Cheryl for being an outstanding instructor. You have taught me a lot this semester that will benefit me in the future as a nurse.
overall a good course. it should be noted by teachers at the beginning of the semester that all students have internet access. seems obvious but i know that i missed two assignments due to lack of technological support. unfortunate for me.
Cheryl is an amazing instructor like I said before she should teach more classes.
Congratulations in instructing a wonderful class that was useful and interesting. Good luck on all future classes.
