13. What did you like about this course, such as activities, projects, assignments, etc.?
I like being able to learn more about the hotel systems & how they work.
good pace for reading, quizes and tests
I enjoyed the many aspects of learning the Hospitality and Tourism trade and understanding the many different concepts of the lodging operation.
i like this course because the activities is good,,,i always wanted to have a class like this because i love to work in a hotel
I really enjoy the excursions that we attend.
even if i could not go to any of the field trips, i thought that it was a great way to learn more things.
I liked how Mr.Lightner made us be interactive with class discussions. We participated with hilo students and got to know them which is unusual in most vidcon classes.
Mr. Lightner is a excellent instructor to learn by.
The classroom experience and the field trips.
I liked that we remained on subject. We talked about material that was relevant and easy to understand. Jim was very right to the point and his was very clear and helped us understand the course.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
I think there should be a bit more "hands on" for this course.
I believe more hands on would be appropriate for this course
he should come and visit often..
Bring Mr. Lightner to HILO! Update the video feed for this class. It should have been faster and clear!
Update video quality.
NA
more field trips and a be a little bit more strict on the homework assignments becuase when a teacher is a bit more strict on assignments i work to my best.
no
No
I have none.
We could have more guest speakers or visit other places for field trips besides hotels.
15. Other comments:
a couple of times, in reading the course book, it would state one thing and yet when that statement was given as an answer to a quiz question it was counted as wrong. was probably just a typo in setting up the quizes, maybe quiz answers could be double checked before next time this class is offered
his good..
NA
good job, I learned a lot!

I Loved the simulation class work. it's helps me to prepare for my future job in the hotel industry. and helps me to understand the standard that i should be at when I reach the field
I really like the excursions.
i like this course because i like to learned a lot more about customer service
I liked that we remained on subject always and the material we went over pertained to the course. The assignments were easy, but I learned from them regardless.
Mr Lightner is very fare and a great instructor, for a student like me,that takes a little bit longer the normal students.
I liked that Jim was very knowledgable about each subject and had a lot of job experience that could relate to the subject we were on. Assignments were kept to a minimum so we could learn and enjoy the course instead of rushing through it trying to get the work done.
14. Any suggestions to improve this course?
NA
he should come and visit us often
Need to upgrade the TV in the HOST class room. The video feed was poor, and the quality of the picture was junk!
We could have more hand on work, like visiting more places for field trips.
no
15. Other comments:
having a small book was really refreshing and helpful I actually could read each chapter thoroughly instead of skimming through. With all the other work from other courses sometimes students don't read the chapters at all because each is 30-40pgs long! that's just ridiculous. our book for this class was only about 10pgs per chapter making it easier to read and retain.

Personally nothing, Mr Lightner was very thourough.
I wouldn't want to change anything
I'm not sure what I would change to improve it.
a. have a more hands on teacher that was there in front of the class explaining more of the course. b. nothing really, it was a good class.
