23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Activities that incorporate all the criteria
Dr. Karen Robbins is a terrific instructor whom definitely knows her subject matters. She did every thing especially well, examples are: clean and clear descriptions and teachings, she made great and effective use of the projector and electronics in class, she was encouraging and made learning of the human concerns with food and nutrition easier for us to understand. She always encouraged us to ask questions and had answers for us that were fact based and not made up. We did experiments with supplements so we could visually see the effects and the length of time for absorption, etc... the list goes on and on... It was a fantastic course and I really appreciated having Dr. Robbins guiding us in the course materials...
Her class is always well- prepared! The beginning of the class, she brings up some interesting news about nutrition, and those were really interested. She also showed us many interesting videos about nutrition!! I really enjoy this class!!
She teaches well and she organize the time well for student to convinient students.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Simply to keep up the works and efforts she applies in her instruction, so that many other students may have the same experience and awareness to impact their lives. I have consistently recommended Dr. Karen Robbins's course to every one I speak with on campus, and I will continue to do so for years to come.
She is fair and very thoughtful. I'm a international student, and I have English problem sometimes. But she always helps and courage me to have better understanding about nutrition. The activity in- and outside of the class helped me learn a lot too.
She make the class content easier for students and likes to do excercise to help student's understanding
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
Real life and genuine concerns for the student and student families. She is doing a great job at teaching the students with fact to promote awareness of food and nutrition and the causes and affects that happen to ones body over the duration of time. Simply Fantastic... She always gives students options if they may be struggling on the certain materials to meet with her and she also encourages speaking of the topics or situation/concerns of the student as a unit (entire class discussion). Also, Dr. Karen Robbins puts things and aspects in the simplest form to comprehend, and additionally, she is always prepared (there's no surprises or disappointments from the student perspective) and she accommodates students with easy to follow along notes, etc...
Nothing! She is amazing!

27. Other comments:
I wish there was a way we could review our tests and quizzes sooner so we could use the last ones to study on the final
I would take this course over and over again with Dr. Robbins if I could use only this course to receive my Bachelor's Degree. Unfortunately, that is not the case, and I am definitely passing this course--so, I will just continue to go around encouraging other students to take this course if they have not done so already. Students will definitely appreciate this course and leave with an awareness that is not normally in one's thoughts on a day to day basis, until that is, they attend Dr. Karen Robbins course.
I really enjoyed this class!!!!!!!!!
merry Christmas

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
I like that every week you knew exactly what was due and when it was due
She described all assignments, quizzes, and discussions very clearly.
i really enjoyed how she was able to tie in a mini scavenger hunt of foods for ingredients for home work. it not only sparked my interest in finding what is healthy out there but being able to get out and do the homework outside instead of staying home.
She was very efficient and graded assignments quickly. She is very punctual in returning e-mails which is very helpful when a concern arises on an assignment.
I loved how the class is more self directed and that the class discussions re interesting to see from different view points of others.
You did an especially amazing job of being ridiculously on top of grading my submissions in an extremely timely matter! I loved being able to find my grade for everything I did nearly right after I submitted it. Thank you so much for that! I also like that you made all the discussions something really interesting (or I thought they were), and I liked that we all got to talk in that discussion room and see what each other had to say. I like that you encouraged us to respond to others by giving us extra points. And I LOVED that the assignments we had to do were so well organized and we knew what was due each week. Also that you gave us the option do to the assignments way before they were due if we wanted, but the due date stayed the same.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She seems to know a lot about what she is teaching. But it's difficult to understand that because there is no FaceTime with her with it being an online class
Very nice, cheerful person.
Dr. Robbins is very knowledgeable in her field of study. She engages students to visit websites that are very informational and readily available to anyone. It has opened my eyes to many new ideas and opinions about nutrition.
Very good online teacher. I hate taking online classes because I usually find them very unorganized and hard for me to pick up on because I am better at learning by being in a class, but due to the strict organization and the fact that I had a serious interest in the subject, I really enjoyed the class.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
For several weeks in a row I fell behind and didn't turn in any assignments. It would've been nice if she had messages me made sure I was okay or encouraged me to catch up. I would've felt she was trying to connect with her students more since she never actually sees us.
Dr. Robbins cares about all her students and reminds students of important assignment dates. She also offers extra credit which is very helpful toward busy student who cannot finish every assignment.
I feel that due to the fact the class was online, there was no person to person contact and there was no telling if there's any concern or not, but not by any fault of the professor.

27. Other comments:
i appreciate being able to jump ahead in the assignments and get a head start on them. thank you!
It was frustrating when the note guide would have paragraphs or sentences that I couldn't find anywhere in the chapter. My classmates pointed out that were probably from the previous book. That made it difficult to complete certain assignments. Also, some of the tests had grammatical errors as well as repeat questions which was confusing at times. Also, the grading system was vague and it inconvenient that we don't what our grade is until the last couple weeks and we have to calculate it ourselves.
Would highly recommend this class, learned a lot!
I would recommend this class to every student who wants to take a nutrition course.
I wish you would have updated your note taking assignments because I think they are still according to the old book. There was always a couple questions that were on the note taking guidelines that no matter how many times I read the chapter and truly paid attention, certain material just was not in the book and I had to do other research that I wasn't sure if it was correct or not. It was frustrating because I hate leaving blanks on my homework and I read the same part of the book the answer should have been located 80 times and it just was not there.

Although, I was not in front of her learning FSHN 185, her work online felt like I was. If I had a question, I would email her and she would promptly reply before the assignment was due. Mahalo.

The web assignments that Karen assigns are about health concerns and such that just about everyone can relate to. I think she did this on purpose because she wants her students to be more aware of health concerns.

I enjoyed taking this course. It was better and different from what I expected but also opened my eyes to the variations of health concerns that I should be aware of.

This being an online class makes it difficult to answer these questions. She never once conversed with me about anything. I had to ask her. I also had a hard time with some of the homework. Some seemed almost out of a different text than I had purchased.
I don't have in class time with her, only on-line.

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Syllabus and course was well planned.
very well organized and great opportunity for learning
Karen went out of her way to help me get enrolled in her online class. I had several problems trying to sign up and she stayed in contact with me and did all that she could to help me get in. I appreciated her information and support immensely.
90% perfect
She did great at giving us assignments but not a lot. She also paced the whole class so that we could get through the whole book in the amount of time we had.
The online class was managed very well.
The class was really interesting and there's so much to learn.
I really learned a lot of practical information to better my health. She always responds to emails and the homeworks are great extensions to the material we read. I really liked her and her class, although we never met in person.
She had a well organized course. I knew what I had to do every week.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Dr. Robbins was available and open for communication. She encouraged all and kept in touch throughout semester.
I think that she does a fantastic job of keeping her students engaged and on-task while taking an online class. I have taken online classes before but never with the kind of energy and enthusiasm she puts forth. She does her best to keep our interest and attention on class. I loved the class. It was very informative and would recommend it to anyone.
I learned a lot of things about nutrition!
I really enjoyed her class and it has given me a lot of information about the health and nutrition of myself and other people.
She has a lot to offer her students.
This was an online class, I didn't get to meet her.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
Professor concern for students showed as she added extra credit to help out those that needed it.
None
She always emails us when the assignments will be soon due.
I like that Ms Robbin's really want her students to learn a lot about health and nutrition, but the weekly load can be really overwhelming to the point that I start to resent the class. I think if she can lighten the weekly load or maybe at least don't overload the week if there's a midterm at the same time.

I'm happy I have this on-line class!
You the bomb.com Ms. Robbins! Everyone should take this class !!
Please just lighten the load a bit. I know you just want your students to learn a lot of important things, but it can be really stressful.
Update study guides to the new edition of the book. There were some things on the study guides, tests, and quizzes that I couldn't find in the new edition.

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Teaching us about nutrition and how we need to know what we are eating and how it is good and bad.
make it fun
Preparing you for quizzes and exams
covering material on sickness and diseases that relate to nutrition
Dr. Robbins explained every chapter of the course in detail.
I appreciate her explaining the subject well. I totally understand what is expected of me and if I have questions she kindly assists.
Very organized assignments and the research part where we write summaries was awesome.
I thought she did a great job on grading the assignments in timely matter and she provided extra credit activities that I really found interesting.
Class material organized well.
Communication with Dr. Robbins is great, this is an online course and she is quick to respond and answer questions, she is open to suggestions for improvement, ie. mistakes in the test, etc.
Not compassionate... at my lowest point of my life and when asked for help it was not given. Huge blow to my confidence, no trust towards authority, afraid to ask for help in fear of rejection. Very disappointed and hurt.
Has assignments, tests, etc all up and ready ahead of time. You can be ahead, with, or behind.
I took this course online and I enjoyed it very much. I had no problems and understood the material very well.
Organization of the online class and expectations.
**Especially Well **I have enjoyed and impressed with the online communication with the whole class. Dr. Karen motivates and encourages us to communicate with one another by adding such to her syllabus. I feel like I am sitting in the classroom and know everyone sitting around me-I can honestly say I am going to miss this class and my fellow students when term ends. VERY NICE! compared to my other online course- I am not sure how many students are in the course let alone who they are. **I enjoyed the extra credit assignments given- they encourage us to learn in addition to course material.
Making our assignments easy to understand.
She always answered questions promptly
Explains what is expected and lets you work at your own pace. Thank You!
Consistent weekly workload made assignments easy to manage.
Everything
I think the course is well put together.
The instructor explains the course work really well and helped the students in any way she could. She didn't push anyone down because the assignments weren't done on time or anything. She got back to our concerns and gave comments in our grades within a short time frame.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thanks for a great class enjoyed it and learned a lot.
shes so adorable
Thank you, it was an eye opening experience but it is up to the individual on how they will use the information
She is a really nice teacher.
Dr. Robbins is very knowledgeable of food nutrition and explains to students very well.
I appreciate the class she teaches and I definitely can use this knowledge in my everyday life. My health is more important to me because I just had a stroke and improving my life by taking care of my health. I am learning to eat healthy and to excercise.
Best online class I've taken.
I thought that the weekly note taking assignment was rather redundant. There were several instances that the note taking assignments were not revised for use with the new book.
She teaches the best subject!
Update material to reflect new textbook.
Dr. Robbins is a great teacher, she leads a lot of interesting discussions in our online forum, creates an easy going and understanding environment for open discussions.
Same as above
She is very knowledgeable of her course.
Really enjoyed this class. I learned a lot and am looking forward to the next semester class with her.
Absolutely a wonderful instructor who loves her job- It shows! DR. K is very supportive of her students; in addition to learning course material and applying it to our daily lives, she is most supportive of us reaching our educational goals.
Loved her class learned a lot
she was always helpful and understanding.
She's very nice
The flexibility of the course is helpful in that going to school and working full time doesn't always leave enough time to get assignments done.
She is a GREAT teacher and explains what needs to be done really well.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
She is an amazing teacher who is always willing to help her students. I am very thankful that I took her class this semester. She is willing to go above and beyond to help her students succeed in the classroom.
She makes sure everyone gets a chance to pass the class and ask questions to see if we understand it.
n/a
She will be there to answer any question its up to you to ask
N/A
I appreciate the concern she has for us students to understand what is being taught. She answers all questions and I thank her for being patient with my needs also.
Excellent concern for students, gives many extra credit opportunities.
She reminds us of deadlines and makes sure that we are aware of any opportunity for improvement.
None
Sometimes things come up in life. With reason and explanation let students make up missed quizzes and tests. Not those who are behind and just missed it, but for those who are with or ahead of class and for an emergency or something was unable to take quiz or test by due date (even if its open for a week, life happens).
If I had any questions, concerns and so forth- she was always available for me. I feel she is genuinely concerned for her students; how we take care of our selves-well being, that we are in good health and that we gained knowledge of from her class.
I love the knowledge I gained and shared with others during this course.
She is very concerned with whats going on
Karen Robins displayed a genuine concern for any problem that was going on and a desire to help the student work out a solution to meet the requirements of the course.
She is always there for the students who need help or clarification of the work that needs to be done.
26. Exams and assignments were returned promptly so that learning was reinforced.

It was great having you as my teacher. I learned a lot from this subject and made me change me eating habits and my family also. Have a great summer and hopefully I see you around campus.
true dat
Excellent class, I took it because it was required but thoroughly enjoyed it
Thank you very much Ms. Robins I appreciate you and the subject you teach. I totally enjoyed my learning experience. I can use this knowledge to stay healthy for the rest of my life and share this knowledge with others.
Great course.
This was my first on-line class and I'm glad I did well. I appreciated the interesting extra credit homework. I might just change my diet. Thanx
Recommended for any one. Hawaii needs to know the info from this class. Decrease diabetes and obesity in Hawaii!!!
This should be a survey for an online course- It is not. If I did not answer a question it is because I am not in the classroom- I am an online distance ed. student. Dr. Karen kept me motivated through out the whole course- I can honestly say I never got "Burn't out" or tired of the course- she kept it exciting through the whole term. I will differently look for her name for future classes. Aspiring- can be added to the list that describes what a wonderful instructor she is. Thank You Dr. Karen!
Thank you!
I think it's great that this is a requirement now, I feel like many people will benefit from this course.
Great Class...Changed my eating habits for sure
I find it difficult to make constructive comments about Dr. Karen since my class was through distance learning. Because we used a newer edition of the text, there were some issues with the chapter notes and tests, but she made concessions when necessary. I feel that any distance learning instructor that uses the discussion board on Laulima should participate in the discussion. I've found through several online classes that the discussion can get a little off track without guidance from the instructor.
Awesome course! I learned a lot that I never learned before.

She responds quickly when you e-mail her, which is something that is very important to online students. She also is very thorough in all of her responses. She also is willing to help with all questions when you don't understand the assignments.
Even if it's an online class, I clearly understood what I had to do for all our assignments and quizzes/exams. She explained it well.
This course is well organized with clearly defined expectations.
Dr. Karen Robbin did a very a good job on organizing the content of all homework assignment, quizzes, and test.
She has a very well planned out syllabus that is very easy to follow and understand. She plans ahead so that students are able to learn at their own speed and prepare for upcoming assignments and or tests.
Loved both classes and highly recommend her, wish we had more nutrition classes for her to teach.............we need this for the health of everyone on Maui.
Very well structured with assignments.
Grading system, uploading grades, outline of whats to be expected and is very helpful
Organization. Course content is really interesting. I am appreciative for the content in this course. I am not too keen on living healthy and would like to start someday. At least I have the foundation when I start. I have also helped others to realize that eating healthy and taking baby steps is a good start.
I LOVE THIS CLASS! Dr. Karen is great. The class was set up in a way that was concise, clear and easy to follow. The assignments were clear cut. I knew what to do, and what was expected. I have been taking many online classes at UH Maui and throughout the Hawaii system and I will go as far as to say that Dr. Karen was the best instructor I had! Thank you.
assignment open week prior and homework was due a week a part
Assign plenty of work.
The organization of the work online!
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Although I didn't have her as a physical teacher and it was all online. I could tell that she was compassionate and knew what she was teaching.
I haven't met her in person, but I think she is a very kind and intelligent intelligent teacher.
The knowledge afforded me through this course will impact food choices throughout the rest of my days. Thank you Dr. Karen
Shes the best Food Science Human Nutrition teacher ever! THANK YOU DR. ROBBIN FOR YOUR EFFECTIVE ONLINE COURSE!
She is knowledgeable in the subject and has a passion for teaching what she loves.
Dr. Robbins is a great Role Model
Great to work with.
I took this class because I had taken Nutrition 185 and enjoyed it. I wish Dr. Karen taught something else too!!!
Thank you.
She's very helpful and answers e-mails very quickly.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
She wants students to pass the class and also get an understanding of the class. She tells students what steps you need to take in order to pass the class.
She is like a mother to her students. I learned many things about my health because of this class.
Dr. Karen's preparation and pre-course design is evident in that expectations are clear up front. Her prompt return of course assignment grades serves to drive further success.
She cares for every student in her class as long a student request for her help.
She responds to student inquires in a timely manner She gives extra assignments to help students who may be falling behind or struggling to help boost their grade
Course was very interesting and glad that she has an interest in our health and well being.
Dr. Karen set us up for success. She was there if I had questions or concerns. She emailed in a timely manner with answers.
Didn't really notice any.

N/A
Dr. Karen: It's been my pleasure sitting under your tutelage. Thank you for a well organized - well thought through course design with rich content. I'm walking away with a bank of nutrition knowledge and an early "A". As suggested by phone, the earlier this information can be embraced by individuals, the healthier our world will become. Additionally, your story serves as an inspiration to all who come to appreciate the value of higher education. Susan Nealy
I got to learn more about nutrition and now i can start living an educated healthy lifestyle. I also lost 8 pounds and change my diet for the better after learning everything in the Nutrition Now book. THANK YOU DR. KAREN ROBBINS FOR EVERYTHING! THIS WAS MY FAVORITE CLASS BECAUSE I LEARNED SOMETHING NEW EVERYDAY!
This is an online class. Get things done ahead of time and studyyyy.
I would however like to address my own short comings when it comes to assignments and quiz time. There were several assignments that may not have been up to date with the text book or maybe my text book was not up to date with the material provided. I was able to get through it though.
Yes, assignments were graded within a week and test results were instantly so you knew how you did. That was great to know on a weekly basis.
Great course.

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Follow the textbook.
The course was paced well
She seems to be innovative as to adding course-related activities; she brings in alternative/current videos...
I liked how she explained the class materials. Used quite a few of videos that covered some of the class lectures.
Teach us very valuable information we should use in every day life.
This is the first on line course that I've taken and I was pleased that everything that needed to be done was laid out in our syllabus.
Allowing the quizzes/tests taken online at any time; very convenient.
all
Her use of supermarket food products to demonstrate certain lessons was very helpful and eyeopening for sure.
Karen Robbins runs her classroom very fairly and efficiently. One thing I was extremely impressed with was the way she absolutely will not tolerate immature students disrupting class time and would immediately take action to separate them so as not to take important class time away from those students who were there to truly learn. Kudos to her!
Explain things good so that the class understands it instead of trying to figure things out
Dr.Robbins had us read aloud from the text in a further effort to create a inclusive group atmosphere. Class time goes by quickly because Dr. Robbins is interesting to listen to. This is an evening class and particularly hard to keep focus when all you want is to put your up and cruse.
There was always something to do.
The instructor was extremely knowledgeable about the course that she teaches.I enjoyed this course and shared alot about what I learned with friends and family.It also helped me take better care of myself and my family by making healthy lifestyle changes/desicions in the food that we eat and prepare and changes that will help us live better and avoid future health problems.A course that everyone should take! I learned alot!
nothing really
I feel she did well with taking the material and applying it into a scenario that made it easier for me to understand.
She gave the class notes and explained them very well so that I could understand.
provided notes for the class
I do like how she posts chapter worksheets for us to download and fill out. It helps me remember information.
I really enjoyed the tests, activities and how each assignment was graded on time!
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Unfortunately, the way the class is structured does not offer students a complete learning opportunity. The notes for the class are straight out of the textbook in a fill-in-the-blank format that Dr. Robbins reads aloud. As she reads, we are to fill in the notes. I find it distracting and am unable to process the information because I am too concerned with getting the notes right. At test-time, I have to search for the information because I have not had the opportunity to really listen and absorb the information. When students ask more challenging questions, Dr. Robbins either does not know the answer, or answers in a round-about way that leads to something different than what was originally asked. I feel I know more about Dr. Robbins' many vacations to Europe and New Zealand than I do about food science. I don't feel I have received the knowledge on this subject that I was craving.
Some of the things on quizzes and tests were not taught in class. She couldn't answer some questions that were asked by students.
very good class!
Great teacher! I would take another FSHN class if i had the time!
She is well organized and keeps everything that we need to know or do in Laulima. If I have any questions for her, I use Laulima and she get's back to me ASAP.
Her classes are easy, yet I still learned a lot.
Ms. Robbins is a great professor!
GREAT JOB
I enjoyed that she is a working professional - a dietician - and that she used her experiences and knowledge to teach us.
Thus far, Karen Robbins has been the best instructor I have have encountered in pursuit of my academic career at UH-Maui College. She is professional, always prepared and exceptionally knowledgeable in her course material.
That she should explain the chapters more instead of typing things out and just doing the test right away. it gets confusing.
I would recommend Dr. Robbins as a professor.
I personally do not learn from an insturctor who reads off information. It is hard to type notes and listen to her lecture. It was hard to learn the information given, so it became hard to take the tests. I am a very hands on learner and i found the class to be very auditory.
Extremely Knowledgeable teacher!
She talks with a mono tone voice so it is very hard to stay awake for 2 hours.
She is a fantastic teacher. Patient and willing to take the extra time to help students out with any questions or will stay when class is over so others can take their tests and quizzes.
Karen Robbins is a good teacher and always gives us the time if I do not understand anything. She gives us extra credit. She is a very good teacher.
that she is a doctor
I would like to say that Karen is a wonderful teacher that has a whole knowledge of Food and Human Nutrition. I heave learned a lot about Nutrition and Fitness as well as applying it to my daily life.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
She incorporates the outreach classes very well.
She encourages us to read and respond to other classmates comments and discussions. Even though this is an online course, I still feel close to my classmates because we are always communicating through Laulima.
She cares about them and returns emails promptly.
GReAT JOB
She reminded students the importance of logging on for our tests. She was also considerate of the class as a whole when she moved a student to the front of the class.
As previously stated, she is very fair and refuses to allow any student to take time away from other students unnecessarily. She will stop her lecture to answer any and all questions students may have of her but will not allow disruptive students to disrespect her or their fellow students. She treats her students with respect and as the adults they are and expects nothing less than the same in return. She is genuinely concerned for the academic progress of her students and is willing to assist them in any way to help them achieve success.
I am dyslexic and the original way the test format was presented it was very hard for me. I talked to Dr. Robbins; the rest of the tests had smaller and fewer of this type of garnering answers.
Seemed to care about all students doing well in her course!
I feel Dr. Robbins deeply cares about her students. Like i stated earlier, she'll go over any questions you may have (during or after class) and will actually stay behind (after class is done) so that students can get in their test or quizzes before they leave.
Karen does care about her students because if she did not she would not give us extra credit.
yup

Nope! Good!
There were questions that I answered "Neutral" and that is only because the question said "in class". Overall this online course was great!
One of the things I really liked about this course and Ms. Robbins was that my assignments and exams were returned promptly.
GREAT JOB
I think that Dr. Robbins did her best. This class was the most rowdiest I've ever attended. I am embarassed for the teacher that some students were disruptive, rude, and inattentive.
I wish all instructors at UH-Maui could be of the caliber of Dr. Robbins. I thoroughly enjoyed going to class each week and looked forward to her lectures.
Dr. Robbins quizzed the class after exams on answers that were most missed by our individual section. This demonstrates her quest for better comprehension of material by all her students.
I think that the class could be more interesting if fun activitys such as somethign hands on was implimented. I feel that Powerpoints are a bit more interesting than coping notes for a few hours. I found that I lost interest during class. she is a Very knowledgeable and nice instructure however I did not find her method of teaching helpful towards my type of learning.
Excellent instructor!!!!!
Overall, I really enjoyed the class with Dr. Robbins. She has a great insight into nutrition and I'm always eager to hear what she has to say about the next subject. All around, very fair and can't complain one bit.
I encourage everyone to take Karen Robbins class they will learn a lot and have fun also.

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Keeps up with the syllabus.
She taught the class very, well. She is very well knowledgeable on the subject she is teaching.
She explained subject matter extremely well, especially being a dietician she was interested in what she was teaching. I really enjoyed taking this course sand would recomend it to a fellow student.
She answered all of our questions when we asked the to her.
nutrition label reading was explained very clearly, it was a complex task.
she weas very organized
she was a very good teacher she took the time to explain to us some thing we did not get.
Everything
I believe that Dr. Karen is genuinely passionate about her work and what she teaches to us. She is very knowledgeable about her subject and explains the matter in a way that is simple to understand.
Very organized and even handed. Treats everyone with kindness and respect. Covers the material well. Loved her class and would like to take more classes she instructs.
The teacher managed time well in each of the classes.
she is a very good teacher with a good attitude towards her students.
she was always patient with the sky bridge students like myself. she made sure that we were not overlooked in any way. I appreciated that since this was my first sky class.
she was very knowledgeable on the course content. Was awesome to be a student and learn about health and it's importance. It meant a lot to me as a student as well as someone who seeks help to be healthier. She was very open and very quick to respond to questions via the email.
Had posting posted early for people that wanted to work ahead.
I took one of Dr. Robbins' online classes and feel like she included as much pertinent information as she could within the timeframe given for the class. I really appreciate the note taking guides she assembles for each of the chapters in the book.
Giving assignments.
Very organized
She is organized.
Any question I had, she would alaways give me an answer in a timely fashion. Although this was an online class, I felt like I had the attention of Karen when I needed it.
There is not one single thing this teacher did well in my view.
I felt the web assignments was fun and informative. I also liked the response to the assignments in the grading.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is well trained in her field.
She is a great teacher and again she is very knowledgeable on the subject that she is teaching.
She is an excellent teacher. Treats each student the same and she is fair to everyone.
Does not answer questions directly w/ yes or no answers.
Interesting teacher
I think that Dr. Karen is a very sweet, and friendly person. I can tell she loves what she does. She as a person is also very interesting and lively.
She can move a little fast when going through the notes. I would like to write less and listen to what she is saying more. Sometimes the questions on the test are not covered in the book or notes but is something she said seemingly in passing. Can be a bit evasive when answering questions.
overall a good class very interested on the subject she teaches.
i enjoyed her class
She made it easy to understand by speaking in terms that i am familiar with
Awesome instructor, I'm glad to have been in her class. If I could do it all over again, I would've wanted to go into the field of nutrition. I am glad to have been under her instruction because she not only knows her content, she is so easy to talk to and get along with. Mahalo nui.
Really liked the postings you would make us do. Sometimes I wasnt able to finish my readings in time so doing the postings allowed me to learn things I might have not been able to read.
Dr. Robbins is an absolute asset to the University - I wish more classes in this field were offered here.
Nothing
Great Course
Needs to learn how to spell check on everything! Homework was a waste of time in preparing for the online quizzes. Some questions were had incorrect answers as choices.
One of the worst teachers I've ever had. Her online class, a "Canned classroom", was almost pure junk. Her curriculum, study guides, quizzes and tests were based on a previous edition of the text, one I don't have access to, therefore, it is outrageous to hold me responsible for this material (I have begged for faculty oversight to examine and verify my statements since the beginning of the semester, and no one has helped me). Her work is filled with typos, misspellings, nonsensical questions, errors and there is virtually no correlation between study guides and the tests they're supposed to prepare me for. When asking teacher for help, I got responses like "I'm on vacation." NO mention of helping me when she returns. No help after she returns.
I did not like this class at all. I loved the subject and even reading the text book which I didn't expect. I felt the quizzes and exams were not focused on the important parts of the class, the questions repeats itself often, and I found more than one right answer to a question. There was also questions that weren't in the textbook. I felt their was too many mistakes to point out and I felt burdened by my other classes to go through all the mistakes therefore I had to settle for a very low grade. Even though we were provided a review sheet it was useless and didn't help out on the quizzes or exams which is it's purpose. The review sheet took about an hour just to fill out with no purpose. I felt the web assignments was very thoughtful and should be kept but should require more students to give a thoughtful reply and maybe a minimum words of 300 per assignment. The major improvements should be focused on the quizzes/tests and if you are going to have a review sheet then it should be for the review or might as well not offer it at all.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
She wants to see everyone do well.
She would ask the class or students if we understood what she was talking about when she gave us notes or giving examples of a situation that we were discussing about.
Not compassionate at all, I had pneumonia and was out of school for two weeks. Had been to the doctor multiple times and brought a note in to excuse my absence. I had missed two online quizzes and a test. Yes they were online but i had pneumonia and was on strict bed rest from my doctor. She would not open the quizzes/test for me to take at a later date and said i was home so i should have been able to take them. Then another student had a death in the immediate family and she was equally not compassionate and said he should be taking the online quizzes during his absence since I was sharing the notes with him. I understand holding students to a high standard but I think that under the circumstances that is just ridiculous.
unwilling to accomidate students w/ medical need/illness.
N/A
I think that Dr. Karen does care for her students and truly believes that we can do a good job. She let's us be independent, and does leave it up to us to get the job done. She doesn't baby us, which is really great because we are at that stage where we don't and shouldn't be babied. She's also teaching us how to be adults.
She seems very nutural but friendly at all time.
I think she should make the test time longer. But for quizzes the time is perfect.
not sure
she always stopped to address our concerns on a point to point basis
I didnt really need any help so I cant comment.
Dr. Robbins was very unfairly criticized by one of the students in our class. This student went so far as to try to rally other students against Dr. Robbins. In my opinion, this student's accusations were way off-base and held no merit. In contrast to what this other student had to say about her, Dr. Robbins was always available for my questions, answered my emails promptly and gave me great feedback on my assignments. The time she devoted to putting together our study guides shows that she's a devoted instructor that goes the extra mile for her students. I appreciate her efforts and applaud her for a great learning experience.
Neutral.
She is willing to help if asked
She encouraged us via Laulima emails
She showed NO respect for her students by putting out extremely poor quality course materials; no respect for me when I came to her with my problems and issues. Sloppy, messy, disorganized course work shows a lack of respect for students, and I resent it very much.
26. Exams and assignments were returned promptly so that learning was reinforced.

Returned in a timely fashion.
Great teacher and is thinking about taking other nutrition class she is teaching. Learned a lot this semester in this class.
I recommend this class be taken online, because the information is drawn out through out the hour and fifteen minutes in class. too much time avail for the amount of info.
Exciting class
Love how she opens tests right away so the information is still fresh in my mind.
A VERY GOOD CLASS!
Loved the class!!
Tests were given the same due date as quizzes which left us no chance to review which questions were incorrect before taking the tests.
I will now need to go back and review every quiz and test, every page of the study guide, to show the errors and general sloppiness, so that I can get the grade I deserve in this class. I resent the amount of time I've had to spend on matters not related to learning in this class. Learning seems not to be a priority for this teacher. As someone who loves school, loves learning, this is very offensive to me.

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
She was very prompt with posting tests and quizzes. I loved that our assignments were posted ahead of time and that I could work ahead.
great explanations for assignments
n/a
modules and assignments and replying back to every homework assignment submitted and test with a grade
This was an online class. She organized her material very well.
She did an awesome job this semester i really like her
Everything was organized so we new what assignments we had each week.
I aprreciated that she was quick to respond to any questions I had.
Clearly outlined the course and what was wxpected of the students, took her online class.
I liked that the class is structured the way it is. It is always consistent. I know when things are due and there are no surprises in the schedule. My favorite thing about this class is that I am able to move ahead in the schedule if I am able to. I don't have to wait until the end of the week to know what is coming up for the following week. I am able to prepare ahead of time which is a plus for me. My schedule outside of school is busy and this course allows me to work at a steady pace without overwelming me.
The things she taught well would be the way that she talked to the class and the way that she explained things to that class
Karen explained the chapters in our book very well. She explained it to where we could understand what they are trying to say in each chapter. She also did numerous activities that helped with our understanding of nutrition.
She organized our note-taking guidelines very well
Be able to explain the questions that we had on something well enough so that I could understand what she was talking about
note taking guideline
clearly explains the goals, objectives, and overall purpose of the course.
She explains lessons very well so that I can understand.
The note taking guidelines.
She really made you think about what you are eating and what you are feeding your family.I really enjoyed this course.
she was particularly clear on what she expected out of me as a student, she was very thorough in class when going over notes, she showed pictures, had us read out of the book, asked questions and encouraged conversation in input over a topic that we are covering.
She explained the material best of her knowledge about the material. If had any questions she did answer.
I think everything she did very well.
she taught very well.
all good
I think that Mrs. Robbins is very thorough and a great teacher. The way she runs her class ensures that we will learn alot about food and nutrition. Out of all my classes this semester, with the exception of Interpersonal Communication, these were the classes I think I learned the most. Mahalo.
she always answered any question and explained them fully
She explains very well, overall I like this class.
Examples, examples, examples! i like that she used food labels, food products, etc to give us a visual understanding on the subject.
Keeps on schedule
The outlines of the chapter notes.
Giving feedback to our work assignments.
Hard for me to answer many of these questions because my class with Karen was online. She is very knowledgeable and clearly loves the topic. I wish I could have been able to be in her lectures.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She is a great instructor.
There was little interaction with teacher and student. The course was an online course, but i had little contact, one email, from the instructor through out the whole course. The course content i found interesting. The discussions that were posted by other students were interesting, but there could have been more interaction from the instructor.
she made me interested more about my health and the importance of nutrients especially now that i am vegetarian and what i can do to stay healthy
She's GREAT!!!
Great professor, responds quickly to e-mail and questions and grades assignments in a timely manner.
I think that shes a very good teacher and knows a lot about the subject she teaches that she shares with the students.
This was a good class and karen is a good teacher for it. Sh knows all the inforamation and explains it clearly. I would reccomend this class to other for sure.
She's a nice lady
her teachings are out dated, and is supper FDA.
She is a very good instructor and I would recommend her to other students.
It's been a great semester.
She is a funny woman that has lots of knowledge to share. Im curious on what Dr. Karen eats and the meals that she prepares because even though i have the knowledge i do now about food, it's still difficult to find receipts to healthy meals and cost friendly meals.
Thanks miss for teaching this course.
i had fun learning in your class.
she is a very patient instructor
She's funny, not so serious like other teachers. She's always prepared.
She's great! I love her teaching that im going to take her FSHN 285 class next semester!
The reading material is informative Some tests have outdated question/answers (very few)
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
yes she is very caring
n/a
shes very helpful and answers questions almost instantly
N/A
no concern what so ever
This class was a little too boring
Do more things to enforce the materials we are going over instead of it just usually being only doing the note taking guidelines. Do more of other things like videos or other things to help cover the material.
some material in note taking not needed
She is always available to answer any questions and asks questions to make sure that we understand.
Dr. Karen helped me in the beginning of the semester when there was a mix up of my schedule. even though it wasnt her job, she allowed me to come into her office and she helped me straighten it out.
none
should offer extra credit!!
She's willing to help students from the satellite places and that's a good thing.
26. Exams and assignments were returned promptly so that learning was reinforced.

27. Other comments:
i think every should take this course or at least take the time to read the book its very informative
will be asking for refund on this class as it was poorly taught and delivered
I would suggest doing other types of web assignments and discussions. It seemed rather boring and repetitive.
I didn't feel like I learned much
I got tired of asking questions, because i never really got my questions answered.
None.
This class was very interesting and informative also. it has been a great class experience for me in all.
Had fun in this class.
Sometimes she moves too fast to write it all down

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Explained lecture notes well and class lectures well organized.
answering questions and researching answers if not known
teaching the material and having a set and clear course.
The note taking guidelines was a big help with studying for quizes and tests and preparing us for the final exam!
Give great examples
My instructor taught this subject very well and made me understand it in a way that i can relate to.
I think that the instructor did especially well in making the course interesting by using real life situations to explain things.
made it easy for people to pass. open note quizes on laulima doesnt make anyone memorize and really learn the material.
overall being able to explain clearly to those even in out reach!
she is really well organized
I liked how she was very orginized through out the semester. We followed the timeline of the syllabus.
she does a very good job teaching. The way she talks is very friendly and inviting.
I think the overall class time went well and she did explain things well. I like the fact that all the notetaking guidelines were all available on Laulima for us to print up and that really helped to study for quizzes and tests.
She planned out her lessons really good. Everything was consistent and easy to understand. This is by far my favorite class because of how everything was organized and planned out.
She challanged us with online assignments to learn more about our health and nutrition.
Since this was an online class I thought she was good in responding back if there were any questions and if there were any corrections she would let us know right away by email.
Having web assignments. I thought that was good to have us do a little research on the subjects that we were studying. It helped to supplement with our chapter readings.
Making study guides to point out important facts
I take the online class so I can't answer most of these questions but overall, on the internet class, I personally will recommend this class to others. She's a genuine person and is well organized.
Her syllabus to the course was very informative, and she made it clear for us to understand the values and concepts of this course.
She had everything well put and it definitely was well thought out very well organized and she also post the assignments in advanced for students to do if your ahead.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I feel like she knows her subject, but lacks on explaning questions clearly. Otherwise she is a really great teacher.
She knows her subject well and helps the students to be successful
Mrs. Robbins was the best teacher I had this semester! I hope to take your FSHN 285 class!
Shes a really good teacher
I think that karren Robbins was a very good teacher and I got a lot of information while being in this class about Human Nutritin.
She is very passionate about this subject and well educated.
seems to know about her field but doesnt teach the specifics very well. has trouble with technical questions.
She is very kind and willing to help.
overall, the best teacher i had so far.
I really enjoyed taking this class and feel that I have learned alot in this past semester.
Good instructor!
Very clear cut class. I felt like it was very well organized. It was a smooth course. I wish all my teachers could make things so easy to understand as Karen Robbins. Thank you! Not only did I understand everything but I really enjoyed it. It was a tough time for me in life but I looked forward to this class. Aloha!
Having some kind of group discussion. I feel like I didn't get to know my classmates. Have some kind of project or questions that have to be answered and done by a couple of students. (small groups)
A+ teacher
I've been working for Lana'i Ed. Ctr. for 5 years and every student that takes her class, really enjoys it.
Overall, one the best teachers around.
She's on top of everything she does.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
She has a really big heart and is willing to help you out if needed.
She always answers the students questions eventually
Mrs Robbins was always there to help us students!
No comment
Mrs. Robbins have always answered my emails and always got back to me if i had a question about a certain thing she would be there to answer me.
She makes sure all the students understand the material well and is available for help if needed.
She does a very good job.
She seemed to be very concerned about students when she felt things needed to be explained better.
She was always there if you had any questions or concerns.
Not much feedback hard to tell but she has made herslef available

I enjoyed her class.
I really liked the class and is recommending this class to all of my friends.
i have taken a basic nutrition class in california and learned twice as much. i learned everything she teaches in 185 AND 285 all in one class (and it was only once a week) i feel that there was a lot of important info left out that could have been included in this class. In general, i was very disappointed with this class
Great semester!
the thing is test would be better if we could review quizes before we tool the test thats why 26 got a disagree
This was my first online class and i really enjoyed it!

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
Well time managment with assigments, tests and exams.
Her class was very interactive with weekly postings and her quiz' prepared you well for tests. She puts alot of work into keeping the class organized, and she does it much better than most teachers.
She has all the assignments she wants us to do for the whole semester (not including quizzes) posted on laulima free for us to do at any time
Dr. Robbins structured her on line class well.
Made a note taking guide!!! BIG HELP!!!
It was easy to find all that we needed for the class assighnments.
Karen Robbins did a great job setting up the course so the material was easily understood and interesting.
Well, she was very fair. There wasn't any opportunity not to be.
Checking the assignments in a timely manner.
As an internet course the directions and expectations of this course was clearly stated.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She was a very helpful online teacher.
She seemed very nice and interested in nutrition, She wants us to learn and wants to hear what we have to say. She is great.
Karen, eventhough on the otherside of the computer screen seems very energetic, happy, and positive about learning and helping her students.
I took the internet course.
She was a great teacher and had alot of knowledge about nutrition and health.
Karen Robbins is very educated in this area of study.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
Karen is a very helpful teacher. I was heasitant about online classes but Karen helped me navigate the website and now im a pro.
I dont know if Karen Robins let her students do makeup tests but if that is true then she might want to extend the deadlines if we contact her before the duration time limit is finished. Or if there was anymakeup or extra credit could be administered for those who missed the tests and quizes
Zero. This is an online course, I understand. But there is no personal connection. It's "read the chapter, look at some sight and summarize an article, take a quiz."
I never had any problems so i would not know.
As an internet course you can't do much with these students because the internet is the only communication.
26. Exams and assignments were returned promptly so that learning was reinforced.

27. Other comments:
I strongly enjoyed this nutriiton class.
This was my first on-line class. I did not like it. I guess I need to see and interasct with my teacher along with my classmates.It might take me a while to accept the new age of teaching. It really lacks the human,social aspect that we've come to expect.
This class is a joke; if I knew I was paying to read a textbook I wouldn't have ever signed up. I can't believe something like this will have an effect on my GPA.
I would highly recommend Dr Karen's class to other students

23. Which things, if any, do you think your instructor did especially well?
I truely appreciate how organized my instructor was! Dr. Karen had a set schedule, and we pretty much stuck by it. It really helped to have set dates for when everything was due. I also liked that she encouraged us to bring food labels and props into class so she could examine them. It was really helpful to examine food nutrition labels as a class.
I like the guidelines that she goes through in each class. I like the notes that she gives us because it really helps for the quizes and tests as well.
I thought that Dr. Karen is an excellent teacher. I learned a lot from her class and am really happy that I took it.
She has passion and love for your job and it shows.
Explaining about certain terms of foods.
She give a lot of examples about our subject matter. Always generalize the topics and connect it to our daily living...
The instructor did especially well on providing an activity such as going to supermarket to check out the nutrition facts and which of the following foods are healthy. In addition, the instructor also provide a note-taking guidelines to go along with the lectures.
This class is very interesting. Thanks Ms.Robins!!
Showing us some products from the store and showing us what is the good aand bad part of the product and look at the labels before you buy them because it might contian thing that you may not know about.
Her response about my question was very fast, so I really thank for her.
class was very well organized.
well laid out work sheets for learning
I really enjoyed the fact that I was able to express my personal feelings about the subject matter and not be scrutinized after for it in the class discussion questions held online. I felt comfortable and fair as a student. I also was happy to know that she answered all of my e-mails promptly and accurately. She uses great techniques in teaching through websites and activities to make the student understand the importance of knowing about nutrition.
Very organized and clear course!
The whole set-up of this on-line class was well set up with the assignments, quizs, and exams.
She gave a quote first thing in her syllabus that i didn't understand at first, but i got what she was saying after the first chapter. Good organization throughout the online classes, loved it! This course helped me improve my health and educate my family about nutrition.
I now have a very good understanding of basic nutrition and diet knowledge because of this course.
Directions through her laulima web class.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
She's a good teacher. I have learned a lot from this class, and I have already begun to incorporate my new nutritional knowledge into my own life and eating habits.
She is a great instructor and I would recommend this class to anyone.
I would definitely recommend her class to my friends and family.
Dr. Robbins is an asset to Maui Community College. She is one of my all time favorite intructors in my educational experience ( UH Manoa, Uh West Oahu, MCC) Her style and her demeanor along with the way she carries herself is excellent. Give this Lady a raise! This class should be a mandatory bloc of instruction in all public High Schools and College...
That she is an overall good teacher. I got to learn more about foods in a positive and negative light. Hopefully I will use her teaching in making the right choices in meals.
This instructor is very nice and well-prepared in class. She made the class more fun and easier for the student to understand the subject.
Dr. Karen takes time to understand the needs of individual students. She is patient and has compassion in her answers. She takes time to try and help you understand your assignments.
That she schould talk more about the bad and good things about products and why or why not you schould buy them.
The instructor was extremely unwilling to help with individual problems. After several emails, she finally responded a week later. I had a very extenuating situation during the semester in which all of my other instructors were helpful and understanding of me turning in a few assignments late. This instructor had no sympathy.
I would definitely and positively appoint this class to all individuals for their benefit and others around them. She has helped me learn so much about food and how it affects us on a larger scale. With her class, I am able to make wise decisions about my personal health. Her teachings helped me on a more personal level than any other class and am so grateful for that.
Have a great new year! Thanks for the great class!
She's doing an excellent job for this subject.
Bravo. I loved your class. Even though i didn't meet you in person or on skybridge, I think that you're a great teacher. Thank you for having me as a student.
This course encouraged me even more to want to become a nutritionist and I really enjoy learning this subject matter.
I think taking this online class tought me how to manage my time more effectively. Her teaching style is great. I learned a great lot in this class.
25. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
If you didn't get enough notes during class she'd stay afterward just so you could write down what you needed.
SUPERIOR
The instructor treated her students very well and respect for them.
Very helpful and considerate.
She makes sure that everybody understands the class work and the activities that are handed out.
One concern is the subject of quizzes and tests held online. For example, there was only one shot to take the quiz and if internet was disconnected unexpectedly and could not log back on while the test was in progress, like on a home computer, I would have to forfeit my quiz and get a bad grade on it. There was no makeups for the tests so I think that is a bit unreasonable because accidents do happen and cannot be prevented at all times, especially internet connection.
Great instruction and readily available for help!
Did a wonderful job on her concern for her students. She reminded me about turning in the Supermarket Activity assignment and our first test.
