For a one credit course we were given way too much material to be quizzed on. The quizzes themselves were not unreasonable but when I have to study 70 slides for a 6 question quiz for a 1 credit class, it does not seem like a reasonable amount of work.
I loved this class! Hope I can take it again just for fun!
lots of information on slideshow presentations, quizzes were pretty specific. maybe suggest what to study for quizzes.
Mr. Bittenbender is just the most cutest professor. Love his unique quirky personality to liven up the classroom. I would not have enjoyed learning so much about tropical plants if it weren't for him.
The course is seemingly meant to deepen the interests of horticulture students in the production and harvesting of beverage crops and does that well. I believe the class received a decent understanding of best practices of the main beverage crops in Hawaii as well as some other crops in the world. One way to improve would be to help us understand the farmgate value of the crops in Hawaii particularly as well.
Wonderful lab I have learned so many applications of tropical fruits and how to prepare them!
It was very interesting to learn about different crops and fruit, and how they can be made into different types of beverages!
i really liked taste testing and to see the production of these beverages. Great class!!

i enjoyed meeting new people, from different backgrounds. it was a fun and entertaining semester.
I wish there was so more structure to the information presented and what specific types of information would be on the quizzes- it always seemed so random. I would pay attention specifically to some types of questions, and then it would prove useless once the quiz came around.
The teacher was very passionate about the material he taught to students in class. I enjoyed his enthusiastic and humor-filled presentations. I loved taking this class!
The best class ever!
Thank you for tasty fruits! I wish I had more semesters to take your beverage crops course! Keep up the awesome work!
yummy fruit

Best... Class... Ever...
I thoroughly enjoyed learning about beverage crops because Skip shows a lot of enthusiasm for lecturing about these beverage crops, and I can tell that he puts a lot of time and energy into getting things to run smoothly in his lectures.
Harry Bittenbender, When I walked into class on the first day, I didn't know what I signed up for. You were playing the guitar and there were a bunch of senior citizens in the class. I not only felt that I was in the wrong class, but that I was lost off campus somewhere. Most classrooms feel like being in a bunker or theaters with seats where people watch the time pass, but in Harry's classroom you can feel engaged not only with your surroundings, but with your classmates. People are talking amongst each other and sharing comments on what is taking place before them. Harry's class is an experience. You go in there not knowing what to expect, weather it's a guy playing the guitar or chopping up a full grown kava plant, and you leave with a better understanding of something that is a part of your everyday life. His lectures are very informative and his tastings make you want to retain all the information of the lectures, it's a very practical and effective teaching method in my opinion.
Awesome teacher I loved your class
This class was fun. Skip is awesome and very knowledgable on the subject. I liked how we were able to actually do and make things in class for our own knowledge in real life situations.
Very fun class! I enjoyed it thoroughly.
This was a really great course. It would be nice if we could make some more of the beverages, but I understand that there are great time restrictions on that.

19. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Fruit tastings and learning about production and cultural practices associated with the fruit crop.
Tasting the delicious fruits of course!
Trying the fruits.
I loved tasting different kinds of fruit I never heard of or tasted. The fruit variety was really good.
I liked the flow of the class (overview of fruit, tasting, then discussion).
That we got to sample such a variety of fruit.
I liked that we got to try all the fruits that we covered.
info, fruit
The amounts of fruits we were able to cover in such a short time. The slides were easy to get the important facts out of and very useful to gain knowledge from.
eating the fruit
fruit tastings were awesome, and Bittenbender is familiar with varietal characteristics :)
Fruits! Tasting fruits!
Fruit tasting! And, Dr. Bittenbender is a jolly instructor inspired by his vocationa and tropical fruits!
trying and tasting of the fruit
Dr. Bittenbender's enthusiasm and thorough knowledge: also his generosity. The class itself, and the students were great. Tasting was awesome. The fruits we covered were interesting and memorable. I would highly recommend this class to others.
Eating fruits after we learned about them was instrumental in my learning. I loved the deliscious fresh fruits that were brought into class. Avocadoes, rambutan, and banana were some of my favorite lectures.
Getting to taste all the wonderful fruit! Also, learning about the origin and nutrition of the fruits.
20. Which aspects of the course did you like least?

Nothing.
Was very technical at times, hard for a beginner to understand.
That we didnt get to meet twice a week and have more fruit.

no field trips; maybe to teachers house would have been cool.
i guess the days that we learned about fruit that i dont enjoy because i couldnt eat the fruit those days
only 1 credit

n/a
I had a really fun time in this class and I learned a lot about all kinds of different tropical fruits.
Great class, great teacher.
quiz too hard
The effort the teacher put in is really refreshing and helpful. Hands down one of the most enjoyable classes I have ever taken and I know I will use info for later on in life to grow quality fruits. Opening up the semester with a guitar song was memerable and set the tone for what would be a great class and semester. Thanks for all the effort it really means a lot.
this course needs to be offered more than once every two years
Mahalo nui loa Skip for all the tastes and all the knowledge!! For the peeling / cooking / shopping, the time out of your daily grind to find and locate each fruit we covered, and for just being an all around great Professor!
