14. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The thing that I liked the most was when all the students were able to converse together. It made it easy to understand the topic that was being talked about, because I got to hear everybody's ideas and thoughts on the subject.
Very interesting. The questions and discussions helped us really think about the subject matter. I like the way Professor Bopp incorporated everything. She used textbooks, videos, and discussions which were very helpful. Another wonderful thing about the class was the organization. The Professor made it very clear what she wanted due by the end of the week.
I liked how everyone was free to express how they felt.
I actually enjoyed a lot of proponents from this class. I liked that the textbook was free online, which save me money. I also really enjoyed watching the videos because they related to course subjects and they were a visual example that went along with the textbook. I also really enjoyed the discussions. I thought that they allowed me to voice my own opinions, without being judged. Finally, I enjoyed that the professor took the time to reply to our discussion boards and assignments. This is an online class so it gave somewhat of an interactive and personal feel.
I liked best the discussions and post by Professor Bopp and other students. Being able to see things from another persons point of view helped me to understand and validate what I learned from others besides what was taught in the textbook. I also enjoyed the supplemental videos that complimented the required readings. A lot of eye opening social issues out there.
The way the material was presented made learning fun & manageable.
I liked that work could be submitted earlier, that way students could manage their time a lot more.
Group discussions, reading everyones responses.
I enjoyed the flexibility this online course provided. With work and school together, I was able to do my homework on my own time.
This is only my second online course and once again I had a great class experience. Ms. Bopp was very accessible and interactive. She always had constructive feedback to make sure you were on track with the material. You can tell she cares about her students and wants us to learn the information and do well. She also reminds us about due dates, which really helps especially when you have other courses to keep up with. Ms. Bopp's syllabus was totally organized and very clear and class expectations. Not only did I learn all about Sociology but I also actually enjoyed it because of the unique topics/subjects we reviewed and discussed, as well as how Ms. Bopp structured the class. I did not know that I would enjoy this class so much, so I am very glad that I took this particular course!
The most important thing about online courses is that you have to learn it on your own because this is not a face to face like in classroom where they can give you more details and example thru lectures. the best thing about online classes is that you learn how to use your time on studying doing your work and able to past the test, quizzes.
I liked the forums with my class about this online course.
I learned some different views and aspects of social framework
discussion post learning about different perspectives from different backgrounds
convenience, interactive with classmates, instructor was very clear and fair.
I liked the assignment guidelines. In particular, that there was a minimum word requirement; but that we could write more if we needed to.
There was no problem with communicating with my professor. Was very organized!
Prof Bopp made the class more understandable by making things easily relatable to her students
I like the fact that this class had disscussions were your answer is never the wrong answer.
15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I didn't really have anything that I didn't like. I guess the big thing would be it was sometimes hard to understand some of the reading responses. Some times I got confused on it and ended up making it more complicated than it really was.
It was sometimes awkward when people disagreed with each other.
Missed the camaraderie and open discussions that would have sure to have made this class entertaining. Nothing beats sitting down and listening to your instructor unless they're boring, and by just the discussions, you could tell she wasn't boring.
I thought she was getting kind of biased at times, but for good measure.
N/A
I enjoyed everything :)
Nothing! The online course gave me a great schedule.
online courses sometimes it really dont provide you all the information you needed and unable to see the instructor thru the whole semester. but its a great experience because you will learn how to do it on your own without relying to others.
I feel that I could have learned more over the semester but the nature of the online course does tend to take away some of the content.
it was a well organized course, everything was excellent
the final paper. I thought we couldn't really express how we felt towards the questions with having a minimum word count.
Having to download from itunes u was a bit inconvenient.
Throughout the semester I put forth an honest effort for every assignment. Yet when I read the work of my peers, it seems they did not do the same.
nothing
There was a lot of writing
16. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I really don't have anything to say about the course. In my opinion it doesn't have to be improved.
I really enjoyed the class and can't think of anything.
Loved it as it was.
N/A
N/A
1. More videos to watch. 2. I think, If i had this opportunity again... I think I would rather have it in person because it was just that great. Nothing to be improved.
Nothing, just keep up the good work!
Perhaps address the final paper a little more...being that it is worth so much of our grade.
it was a well organized course, everything was excellent
n/a
To allow for more creative, divergent thought--possibly allowing students to choose their own topics (or from a list of topics--with respect to each week's assignments. Maybe include a collaborative element in the course. Perhaps technology such as Blackboard Collaborate or even face-to-face discussions (in lieu of written submissions). During the semester we viewed a lot of mediated videos, which were assigned. It would be interesting if students could choose some of the media--either individually or collectively.
I don't think this course could be improved. Maybe if we didn't have to use itunes to download the material or listen on that. Other than that, it was great!
Having to respond to one forum instead of two
I feel like this course can be improved if there weren't much videos to watch, however, the videos did help but it made it a little harder to do disscussions and assignments especially if your computer does not have itunes or your computer take forever for the videos to download.
17. Other comments:
Definitely continue to encourage students to save just the assignment list on the syllabus. I checked the assignments every week and it was extremely helpful.
I would take a class taught by her again.
I would not change anything about this class. The subjects were easy to learn and interesting. The power points were somewhat helpful but it was evident that the in-class students would benefit from the PowerPoint rather than the online students. Overall, I enjoyed the class and learned a lot. Thank you.
Thanks for having the book made available free to us, or it could be purchased for a modest sum of $30.00.
This class was fantastic. It was straight to the point and made each student think with a sociological imagination.
I will recommend this instructor to others!
Thanks Prof. Bopp!
I plan on definitely recommending Ms. Bopp's Sociology class for future students!
Thank you professor Jayne for a great semester. I normally take online courses because it works with my availability BUT if I knew how this course was beforehand, i would definitely take the time to take this course in class with you. I can't imagine how great the "forums" would be in a face-to-face setting. Thank you again for a great semester!!! Trevor Baba
Thank you.
I learned a lot in this course
great professorâ?¦great course :)

14. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I appreciate the instructor included subjects and information that were thought provoking.
The freedom to express my opinion.
I liked how I grew more and more comfortable with discussions among my peers. I enjoyed the fact that everyone can share his or her own opinions about all the topics that we've covered.
everything was available using the online tools she gave us.
How much I learned! I don't normally say that too.
Everything was well organized and challenging, but manageable. I learned a lot and the course challenged my way of thinking.
The articles and videos shared by Professor Bopp.
The thing that i like most about this online course is the discussion every week. It was nice to read all about different people opinions.
Being able to have an open-mind to the discussions we had
She was always open for help and conversation. She made everybody feel comfortable to speak how they felt without fear of intimidation.
I loved how all of the assignments had the due dates in the title, which was incredibly helpful. It was also wonderful to have the option of doing all the coursework at one time because it was all available for the entire semester, with the exception of quizzes, which were given with announcements and ample time to complete. Professor Bopp is also very accepting and gracious of student comments, giving feedback on every discussion post, and a very fair grader. I highly recommend her class and this professor.
There was always a quiz, discussion, reading response, and video dedicated to each section. This helped to thoroughly understand each topic and issue we were meant to learn that week. Also, it was healthy and freeing to be able to speak out your true feelings and opinions (in a respectful way) without being judged for it.
Ms. Bopp continuously gave us feedback and kept the students updated with what was going on in the class. She didn't baby us by e-mailing us whenever things were due, but she was very observant and took note of things. She replied to e-mails quickly, which was great. She doesn't shut down anyone's ideas, she opened us up to other ideas.
This online course is very informative. I love how Ms. Bopp provides life experiences in the assignments. It makes this class personable (:
I liked the flexibility of the schedule.
The content and stories that we learned weekly were always very interesting. The instructor would almost always give feedback on discussions and even provide personal experiences to emphasize the point.
I like the topics that were discussed in class and how everyone was able to put their perspective into play. I also enjoyed watching the videos that Ms. Bopp provided; it was very informative and a great learning experience.
15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Can't think of anything really
N/a
There wasn't much that I did not like. I would take this class again if I could!
finding some of the links were somewhat hard for me. Other than that everything was amazing.
A few touchy subjects, but it didn't bother me much.
The grading point system. I feel like the scale on such little points made it more difficult to get the highest grade possible.
I dislike all the reading we had to do but it makes since consider is an online course.
Nothing.
That laulima is down at two in the morning. I'm a night owl and it was explained to me that online work could be done 'at any time'. Lies and blasphemy. Also, any work started before two am that was attempted at or after two am was not saved and that's just horrible.
I wish there was a chart-type calendar available.
There wasn't anything that I didn't like.
The fact that this professor had a due date timeline example: Assignment 1 is due dec 1- dec10 but is consider late? I didn't understand that she would've made it clear that after dec 1 it would be late. I thought between that timeline it's consider on time but apparently not.
N/A
The grade due dates were different then the assignments and it threw me off.
I liked everything!
16. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Accessing the itunes was slightly inconvenient but other than that, can't think of anything else.
Give Jane a pay increase.
I don't have any improvement suggestions except maybe that fact that a few things we went over didn't seem to be about "Woman's" Studies.
Video reflections by the instructor would be nice, and more one-on-one interactions with other students created by the instructor.
I honestly don't know anyway to improve a course with which is already great. Maybe offer it in person on campus that way students can get that face to face experience.
A calender with constant reminder of due dates would be helpful. Also, if youtube links for videos were given in case itunesU acts up, that would be convenient.
We covered many good topics, maybe if we could squeeze in a couple more. A short powerpoint project would be interesting to do as well.
Better online format teaching.
Honestly Ms. Bopp does an excellent job. The class is informative and she challenges you to think outside the box. This class couldnt have been taught better.
Just changing the dates so it is clear. There are two due dates shown and I got confused a couple of times on which due date for each assignment.
17. Other comments:
Enjoying the course!
You are an awesome professor and I learned a lot in your class!
Thank you Jayne for your understanding and sensitivity towards your students!
Great professor.
I loved this class and would recommend it and the professor at any time. It was lovely, engaging, and eye-opening. I was highly satisfied with this course.
Overall, I loved this class. As long as you remind diligent with the work, it's easy to understand and enjoy the material. It was a very enlightening course and helps you to identify yourself.
I would recommend this class to every and anybody. I wouldn't have expected an online class to be so informative and fun.
Great job!
Overall great class! Would recommend others to take and learn something new.

I loved that she had awesome discussions with the students.
The ease of working on my own time.
Discussions
I liked how Professor Bopp was always on top of things. She replied quickly to our emails, questions and posts on the discussion board. She also has a great sense of humor, which is what made this course worth a try.
15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing! Everything was good.
alot of the kids waited last minute to post discussions, which made it hard to have a discussion with the online class.
Nothing
Missing the in person interactions and the lack of motivation to actually do work.
The twice a week homework. I took two online classes which hindered me from completing everything
Nothing at all!
16. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course could be improved if we could do more than just discussions and responses. Maybe a class video chat to have a more live interaction, but I know that's a bit hard to do.
no improvements needed, really loved this class!
Nothing. It is a great course.
Everything was pretty straightforward from grading to assignments. Maybe the one thing that could be improved would be better instructor explanations or examples of difficult concepts such as the sociological imagination. The text did not give a very good explanation but eventually understood it after some Google searches.
It's good

14. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It was all mapped out from the beginning
I liked that the topics that were covered were what most would call controversial issues and I found it very important to know what my fellow peers thought of the various topics that were discussed. To know other people's thought processes was great. The interaction online with Professor Boppp was great, she clarified things that were questionable.
I like how she responded to every single post and keep communication line open
We did discussions based that pertains to everyday life. Also, I really liked how Professor Bopp already made the readings available to us so that we didn't have to purchase any books for this class, which saved me some money.
I liked the way Professor Bopp set up the online course. She created a learning environment where the students could interact and actually learn versus other online courses I've taken where the instructor isn't even involved in the learning process at all except for when you email them a question. Professor Bopp engaged with the entire class in the discussion as well on our assignments where she provided feedback to our responses. I liked that. Most of the other online courses were boring and I felt like my mind wasn't stimulated. The professors would just put down the assignments and due dates and have no interaction except to post on the homepage that an assignment was coming due. Other than that, no instructional engaging whatsoever. I would highly recommend her class to other students! Her course makes the student think and learn and because more open minded about things!
The content was very will organized, and easy to follow. The discussions on the forum was very enjoyable. The instructor responded to are commits and questions quickly. Very good class.
Taking this course made me understand a lot better the social problems that still go on in our society and in other societies.
The accessibility to learn from my home.
15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
nothing
That there were no in class or face to face meetings.
The fact that I would rather have her class in person but due to my own personal circumstances I was not able to
Nothing, this was the best online class I've ever taken.
nothing, I love her classes. This is the second time I've taken a class from her.
nothing
there was nothing I did not like about this course, I needed this course to further on my education.
16. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
i cant think of anything
I can't think of anything necessary to improve this course besides a possible face to face.
Sorry I don't have one sentence because it was great!
Nothing really, this class is good to go.
N/A
can't think of any.
I have no comment

AWESOME PROFESSOR NEXT TO PROFESSOR SUSAN WOOD
AWESOME CLASS!!!!
Online courses need to use Professor Bopps online class set up as an example of effective online course teaching!
No comment
This course was great. Mrs. Bopp is an excellent instructor with a lot of knowledge about her subject. I really enjoyed her class.

14. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Professor Bopp was always up to date with everything, always willing to help and got back to emails very quickly. Assignments/tests/quizzes were graded in a timely manner and were available for students to view.
I really liked how we used the discussion board a lot. It was a good way for all the students and the teacher to interact, giving it an almost "in class" experience! I also liked how even though there are a lot of us in the class Bopp would give feedback to each student.
I liked how the course was designed and that the grading was clear from the beginning. I also like the amount of opportunity to gain points in earnings for a better grade.
The variety of the content. From Youtube videos to the documentaries in the itunesU, it made the materials from the textbook more relate-able. I'm also a very visual learner, so having other mediums within the course, other than just the textbook made it easy for me to follow along.
I like how every assignment was all planned out and posted. The work load was just right. The assignments were a challenge, therefore learning. Ms. Bopp is a great teacher and always graded our assignments on time. She's very well organize.
I liked that it wasn't like other online courses where I would feel lost and not able to speak with my instuctor. But I was able to because she would leave her feedback on everything we did.
I really enjoyed the films! I had a better understanding and more visual feel.
Professor Bopp was actively involved in this online class.
I liked that I was able to have discussions with my classmates about the material we were studying because it helped broaden my understanding about the subject. I also liked that there were videos about the material we were learning because they provided more insight on the issues we were studying.
Mrs. Bopp!
The different tools used to explain subject matter. Also, the ability to communicate freely, open, and honestly. Very respectful and engaging professor!
I liked how open she was about all her subjects and always made all the students feel as if their side of a discussion was important or interesting. She always had a conversation with everyone who posted in the discussion
I liked that the course was still challenging but you had the freedom to come and go and also that i learned more with this class than with my instructor in class
I really enjoyed the course. I learned a lot. The discussions were very interesting.
That everything was clear and I was able to keep up with the course.
15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Couldve learned a bit more about the subject.
Nothing.
I disliked nothing in this class. For example, I felt my resources was easily accessible, perameters of the class was clear, and content was manageable.
That it was online! I very much enjoyed this course, but If time and distance were not an issue I would have loved to have attended a traditional class.
I kinda sorta didn't like how we had to download the videos. It took forever.
That the students weren't actively involved. One week only one other person did a discussion post!
There wasn't anything I disliked about my online course experience. It was challenging and fulfilling.
n/a
No comment
Nothing really, this was a great course. It was manageable to get through and the material wasn't so boring that I'd fall asleep reading/watching videos.
The fact that you have to be very disciplined to do an online course cause I am not a very disciplined person
Nothing I liked all of the experience.
I forgot some assignments but this can happen with any online course.
16. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
N/A
I think that this class is good as it is currently.
This course could be improved by including better clarification on some of the discussions becase I felt that I was in the dark for some of them.
Maybe add a chat room section. That way students can discuss things currently in real-time conversations. That would be pretty interesting.
Maybe cut down the lengths of some videos. Some was a bit long and took a really long time to download.
I don't have any suggestions for how this course could be improved.
n/a
N/A
I think the way this course is taught now is perfectly fine. The way students are able to finish work as early as they want is great and an efficient way for students to distribute their workload throughout the course of the week/month.
I don't believe that this needs to be improved because this is just the right easy and hard
The course don't need improvement.
17. Other comments:
Bopp is a great teacher! Would recommend her to others, and wouldn't mind taking another class of hers!
Overall great class and I learned a lot.
I really enjoyed this online course! :)
I enjoyed this online class!
N/A
I highly recommend others to take this class. It's not hard to get through but at the same time teaches you tons of information on the subject. I think I was able to stay on time with all my assignments because I never stressed out about the class and was able to work on it and look forward to doing the work, rather than always stressing out and forgetting deadlines.
Another comment would be a good one. It's that professor Jayne is always reachable and she is always quick at responding ang is a great teacher
Great class. I recommend it for anyone who is interested in a good teacher and subject.

N/A
The flexibility of the schedule made it a lot easier to get things done. Also the teacher was easy to talk with and was very knowledgeable about all subject matters. It made learning a lot more fun.
I liked the ability to have two different forums, one sharing opinions with the other class members, and the other was between the instructor and the student. I was able to reveal things to another person that I usually do not talk about and felt comfortable enough to do so. I also was able to take a look at myself and realize that I have opened myself up to new ways of thinking. I have totally enjoyed this course and highly recommend that others take this course with this instructor. She rocks!
I was able to take this course and not have it interfere with my work schedule
I like the overall learning experience. This is not my field of study, but the course was interesting.
Overall the class was really great, I liked the whole curriculum. Reading from the text book was not that bad, but the slides she made really helped a lot. Furthermore, I love the documentaries she put up and movies to explain the text book terms and real life examples. This class was fun.
The writing assignments. A lot of times her questions made me think, before expressing about what I wanted to write about. That was the best thing she did for me, made me think about her challenging questions before answering them.
Online courses are very convenient. Course outline was straight forward.
Our ability to speak our mind, and not get knocked down for it.
the flexibility and the fact that the due dates were clear.
I like that we are free to express our ideas on topics without any criticism or insult from the teacher or other students.
What I liked most about my online course experience was that it was well structured and laid out.
the flexibility with due dates
the book. I liked how up to date it was with examples
The test was 20 questions long and gave me enough time to complete it with my complete thought, unlike my other online class which was 50 questions and I only had 1 hour to complete it...
pretty straight forward
I liked that the quizzes given matched up with the study guide questions.
the flexability
I thought it would all be independent, but I really enjoyed that it was very proactive with the other students in my class.
i liked how we were given until Sunday to finish any work we needed to submit and that the assignments were related to whatever the reading we were suppose to do in the book. also the quizzes there were no trick questions or anything like that only things that Mrs.P let us know what we should know from the reading.
I really enjoyed the clarity of the syllabus/schedule as well as the assignments. I knew exactly what was expected of me from the first day of class, and this helped me plan my schedule and complete my assignments and exams with ease. I also thought that the class discussions were extremely interesting, and they allowed me to see different points of view instead of just thinking about my own perspective.
I've learned about social change, and to explore the issues surrounding our social problems such as drug abuse, and crime. Reading different thoughts and ideas of people is a wonderful thing.
Flexibility of the class
The lessons were interesting, teacher was helpful and the class was amazing.
Specifically with this course i really enjoyed conversing with my classmates in our discussions.
Reading others posts.
What I liked most is that all the assignments were clear and understandable. The deadlines were fair and the amount of work pertaining to those deadlines was a reasonable amount too. I liked how there were different ways to learn about topics such as videos, audio, using the textbook, and powerpoints.
I liked the flexibility of it. Being able to do the homework and discussions in my own time.
The flexibility in the schedule is definitely the most attractive part of the online course. A surprise was how forthcoming people are about their lives when they can speak from a more anonymous voice. In some ways this course was more on my mind throughout the week than my regular class courses.
the flexibility
I enjoyed the interaction with the other students and Prof. Bopp conversed with us very frequently and pushed us to expand our views and look at things objectively.
That Prof. Bopp is very inderstanding, personable, helpful, and fun!
did not need to go into class
I liked everything about this course!! Mrs. Bopp gives great input and her assignments were very interesting and they really caught my attention! The video's she provided were also very helpful!! I will be looking to see if Mrs. Bopp teaches other courses!!
The fact that every one engaged one another in conversations and replies.
The convenience of being able to study whereever I want to....work, home,.... and the flexibility it gave me to study. My life is very hectic, working 40 hrs a week, I have my young niece and her 3 children all 2 and under living with me so online courses REALLY, REALLY helped me to be able to attend school while taking care of my other priorities. The online course experience is just as good as being in the classroom, depending on the instructor, Mrs. Bopp is a great teacher and I loved the way she structured her online class because she made it interesting and she made you think....use your brain. I can't say the same thing for my other online course...yikes..!
I liked it because you could do the work at your own pace and I hadd the flexibility to read and do the assignments on my time schedule even though there were due dates The subjects and topics that were discussed was very interesting and it made me want to learn and you had a unique way of responding to our discussion board that it made everyone want to participate in the discussion and put forth their opinion without being judged. I liked reading everyone else's post and it made me think further because everyone's opinion and their interpretation of things are different.
18. What did you like least about your online course experience?
N/A
I would have to say waiting for others to post in discussion before making a comment. It would have been easier if comments were due after the discussion of the original posts.
I really don't think there was anything to dislike. This was a totally positive experience and can't wait to suggest this course and instructor to others.
N/A
I personally had a problem with keeping up. It wasn't because the teacher overloaded us with work or was really that difficult.I personally have a hard time remembering to look at laulima because it's my only online class. Other than that the class was great.
The on-line discussions. I'm not a person that likes to slam people or write as if I was a know-it-all. Sometimes I felt like an ass, because of the way I felt about certain things. Sometimes I chose not to comment on other people comments. I don't think the world is perfect, but I understood what she was trying to do. This thinking out of the box is something I needed and yet the whole process sometimes felt very painful.
Course outline and the requirements were not followed by teacher or students. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but should respond in a respective manner which teacher and student did not. There were a few posts that I made which the student and teacher blatantly disrespected and thought it was funny.
n/a
I didn't like that it wasn't conversations being held but single replies. Something I feel would have been good in a classroom.
nothing.
multiple chat responses needed
n/a
I would have liked to sit in a class for some of these discussions.
We would have reading responses and discussions but it wouldn't show that we had discussions in the future in the grading book....needs to update..
nothing realy
no dislikes.
not being able to have your questions answered as soon as you ask like the way they would in the classroom
n/a.
nothing i was a little nervous taking my first online course because i learn better being taught in person, i guess the least thing i would say i didn't like would be that when getting my assignments back and reading the comments left if i didn't understand what she was saying i could just go and talk to her right then and there unlike being in a classroom.
- Nothing - Everything was wonderful!
I don't understand some of the theories when I read the book.
The least experience is the deadlines it was kind of hard to turn in assignments when you work full time. But i managed it.
The one thing i didnt like about our online course is that it is very unclear in how the gradebook is setup.
Nothing.
There was nothing really that i least liked about the course. If anything I think it would be the fact that I couldn't work as far ahead as I wanted to.
The lack of interaction. I feel like a lot of the discussion would be more interesting in a face-to-face class.
I missed seeing the faces(or even pictures) of my classmates. Like a lot of my courses, I feel like we pack too much(really good) information into too little time. I feel like we rush through it all a little bit. I would like to see more time to let all that information breathe and maybe even pick some of it up for a second or deeper conversation.
nothing
There wasn't really anything not to like...the only "uncomfortable" part of the class was it made me think about my past quite a bit.
Class discussions.
nothing
Honestly, I liked everything about this class. Maybe just adding the discussion's into the grade book. The grade book was were I looked to remind me when assignments were due. Other than that, I really enjoyed this class!!
sometimes it's hard to keep track once u fall behind...
nothing....though I really wish there were more online courses available!
I guess the not having the interaction of being in class and really talking face to face with everyone because in person you get to see a person's expression when having a live discussion and they are giving their personal opinion or experience about a certain topic. Plus you get to know your peers a little better in a class and not just a face and a name.
19. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
N/A
I thought this class was taught in a well manor. I don't know how it could have been better.
I am sure there is always room for improvements, and the only one I would like to suggest is that since we are all in college, I would expect better grammar and spelling from the students submitting their work. If you graduated from high school, and passed English 100, then you should be able to spell and know how to construct sentences.
No need
I don't think there is much to improve on. Though I suggest that one of the video links used a website where you needed to make an account. Perhaps maybe finding another alternative video would be helpful.
With everyone having an open mind. (If unbiased is possible)
I feel this course is great how it is
it was perfect!
More participation from the students to have conversations rather than just single responses.
This already a great course overall.
I'm not sure.
I really liked this course. I am not sure how it could be improved. But I do feel like I would have benefited greater from taking this course on campus instead of online
We shouldn't be graded on the syllabus quiz....I had a really good excuse as to why I missed it, and contacting the teacher was not helpful because she sounded disrespectful and always tried to reason with whatever I had to say.
more organized
I'm satisfied with the course and how it's taught.
i dont see the need for any improvement in this class
n/a.
i can't think of anyway the course can be improved, the martial sometimes hard to understand but if you take the time to do the reading for the week the assignments are not super hard, and they require to take some time to think about it before you start to answer.
If it is not broke - don't fix it! This course is perfect just the way it is.
I really enjoyed to watch documentaries and interview that Ms. Bopp gave us in this course. I hope that we can have more interesting documentaries and interview that can help students to improve their knowledge.
Their were nothing that could be improved.
As far as the course goes i believe that it is a really good class.
N/A.
Sometimes links to the videos from itunes wouldn't work or would freeze and take a while to load. Other than that I dont think the course really needs to be improved.
The online class is organized well. I do not think there is much more than can be improved. I just wish that I took the class face to face.
First off, I would like to state that the course was excellent! From there, I would say just stay open to change and the natural evolution of where the students want to take it. Anything that could improve more back and forth dialogue would help. The minimum requirement for a discussion board post was 100-150 words and two post were required. In an effort to meet that requirement, i didn't always feel free to interact in a more casual way with classmates and their post. And if I did, it was unclear if that was counting towards my participation.
N/A
There is nothing that I would change about improving this course. I feel that how it is right now is fine.
make it more interesting/fun
Like I stated earlier, just to put the discussion's into the grade book area. That's it.
Audio reading so that you could follow through with the instructor on the slides...
I think that everyone should make a profile for themselves and put a photo up so you know what they look like and you not only reading post from a faceless name. I didn't put one up because I didn't know how to do it. I think having a photo of everyone should make the course more personal and maybe have a connection with the discussion posts.

Professor Bopp is a very wonderful teacher. She makes class learning interesting with video as well as good notes. Her examples using life experiences make the course easier to understand and a fun one to take.
Thank you Professor Bopp for giving us the leeway to express ourselves without feeling small or guilty. You are like a breath of fresh air and the concern you displayed throughout this semester is greatly appreciated.
Totally recommend this class. Don't change anything and thank you for a very open and great learning experience this semester.
Her teaching material I thought was very good. I didn't know what sociology was until I took her course. Her videos, reading material, etc., was everything what the course is all about. I would recommend her to anyone who is interested in taking Sociology. She actually made me think of taking more Sociology courses.
Patricia Bopp is a good instructor. There are just a few things that need to change. As a teacher, being open minded is required. There are like 20-30 students and we all have a different perspective, this is sociology. However, I felt that some posts were badgering and was not called upon by the instructor. Overall, she had a good outline, stuck with it, & I learned a lot from a sociologists perspective.
Excellent Instructor!
I really enjoyed taking this class because professor Bopp made it a easy learning experience by providing notes and videos.

i had a great experience for my first online class
Professor Bopp is one of the best instructors at LCC! I would recommend her to anyone! I took this course to fill my elective requirements and I am so happy that I did. I learned more than I ever thought possible! Thank you so much, Professor Bopp!
This course is very interesting, and I would recommend my friends to take this class with Ms. Bopp.
Professor Bopp seems like a very interesting professor and would be a lot of fun in class.
I was really impressed with this online course. P. Bopp was one of my favorite instructors. Her life experience and present dedication really shines through. The course was interesting and I really learned alot about my world, about people, society, myself and about underlying currents that often go unnoticed.
I loved this class :)
Professor Bopp is probably the best teacher I have had for a class at LCC. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and would take another from her in a heartbeat! She was understanding and interesting and made me step outside my comfort zones.

Mrs. Bopp, I really enjoyed being in your class!! This semester I took all my classes online and I was really worried about how heavy the load would be and how well things would be explained, you made this class go very smoothly for me and your topics really got to me!!

I enjoyed this class thoroughly and I feel that I'm finishing this course with a better understanding of people and society. I have a better understanding and a wider perspective on things that I previously didn't. I now have a new love for Sociology and plan on minoring in it!
I thought I would have a difficult time with this online course because it would deal with topics of different societies and the interactions with other cultures. Surprisingly it was very interesting because of the topics that were discussed it made me want to learn more. It was enlightening to read everyone's post on the discussion board because everyone had some experience that they would share. I would gladly take another course of yours whether it be online or in class. I like your style and because of that no one is afraid to share their really intimate experiences and you don't hold anything back either when you respond to post. Thank you so much Professor Bopp for making this course a very rewarding and challenging experience for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Aloha, Leona Oliveira

the way in which it made me rethink my life experiences. This course has allowed me to see how I have been a part of several groups --- dominant majority and racial minority --- and how I have affected as a result.
the videos that were watched teaching us about different cultures!
remembering how each aspect of a society is influenced by a lot of environmental factors as well as social factors in general
Interesting discussions with class.
applying sociological perspectives into the real world.
The structure and how involved the teacher was for an online course.
The debates we had
The videos that I watched during this course and my responses in the Discussions.
learning that most people have different perspectives and thats why they do or think the way they do.
some socioligical perspectives may be useful for my life.
the importance and relativity of sociology in my life
the topics and movies about social problems we discussed
learning about why people act the way they do
Learning about ascribed statuses and the racial discrimination that is still present today.
how to think sociologically.
The class discussions and the videos we watched for them. They were the most insightful.

17. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I really appreciated the opportunity that we had to make such good use of chat and discussion. I have taken many online classes and most do not make use of the chat and discussion tools. Dialogue with my fellow classmates and Prof. Bopp helped to clarify some of the material and provided me with fresh perspectives and insight.
the videos we watched
The discussions actually help puts me in the right perspective for each concept presented
No problems.
I liked how the reading response questions were not too easy and yet not too hard to respond to. You had to do the assignments and read the chapters, but it wasn't to the point where you felt hopeless and overwhelmed. I also enjoyed the discussion posts and agreeing or disagreeing with my peers. It put me in their shoes and made me look from another point of view.
The board posts and online conversations!
The interaction we had with the other students, even though we were all in different places.
How easy it was to have a discussion over multiple days
I really liked the videos that related to the material learned in class and I also liked the Discussions you had us participate in because it made us use critical thinking.
For this class the whole class was very active in communicating with each other. The teacher made us interact with one another and it helped in seeing how people can all think different.
because LCC didn't have in class SOC100 this semester.
the flexability
everything I say or share with my classmates I have time to think and analyse before I post. It was very interesting to learn and discuss about social problems from different point of view.
The flexibility was the greatest part of my enjoyment of this class.
learning about all the different ways that other cultures do things.
The class discussions, and the flexibility.
18. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I had a little trouble downloading some of the videos on itunes-u. It was frustrating for me but definitely worthwhile once I was able to watch the videos. They were well selected and good additions to the text.
the assignments
Missed the feeling of being in a physical classroom. However, I chose the online option for the convenience so this is not really a negative point.
There was nothing I disliked about this course.
Everything was perfect.
Nothing really
That we had 2 days where assignments were due. But I guess that's because this is only a 6 week course.
Online courses usually are more intense, its a lot of work.
some online course let us to self pace assignment.
n/a
Overloaded in short time, have hard time to watch movies on Utunes, in fact I watched through youtube or other source
There was really nothing that i did not like about this class. It was a great first experience of an online class.
we covered a lot of information in 6 weeks...a little too fast for my taste.
Classmates wait until the last minute to post in discussion boards, making it hard to post the minimum replies for full credit.
19. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Perhaps some easier way to download and view the videos would be helpful.
No improvements perfect
I don't know how it can be improved. This is an online course, as long as students understand that there should be no problems. Professor Bopp is very quick to answer any questions by email, definitely within 24 hours.
I feel that nothing needs to be improved. I learned a lot and really enjoyed taking this course.
There is no need for improvement. Ms. Bopp was very clear and accurate with everything. She was very interactive and listened when i had trouble.
It seems fine as it is
Maybe elaborate more on how some pictures you use in your power points relate to the material learned. Some were a little confusing but I guess it's because you elaborate on it more in your lecture class and less in an online class.
overall i think this class did well. i dont see in area that needs improvement.
This course would be more enjoyable if it was not a summer class. although this class is great the way it is. If anything, to improve this class the class material online should be easier to access.
The only way i can see this course be improved is more discussions. They made life so much easier and with more communication between students this will only get easier as some people are gun shy to post.
nothing really. the class was overall a good class.
I really liked this course. I recommend it to everyone. There is nothing that I would change.
20. Other comments:
This is a thought provoking and enjoyable class and I appreciate Prof. Bopp's comments and insight on the various topics covered.

Ms.Bopp is one of the best teachers i have encountered.
Great Teacher and Great Course! I was scared at first taking a Summer class, but you made it enjoyable.
thank you ms. bopp
Great class loved every moment :)

It being online
The video assignments in this online course were great. I enjoyed watching the videos and reflecting on all the things they revealed. I also like that all assignments were due on Sunday and Wednesday instead of random days every week. It promoted a very organized structure for students to follow. When discussing women I am glad that we pointed out the diversity of women in America to include social status, ethnicity, sexual preference, marital status, etc.
Flexibility of schedule and no set time of class but whenever the student is free to complete assignments at a reasonable time. I also enjoy the fact that I dont have to go to school and reserve certain times to drive to class.
Flexibility. It allowed me to participate while I was traveling in the mainland.
Everything! I do wish that I took this class in person instead of online. I enjoy discussions very much, but Im always wondering after an online discussion about how much more interesting it would have been if we discussed the topic in person. Maybe there should be a once a week meetup to have verbal discussions?
Discussion board because it offered interaction with others.

Not long enough. Perhaps I would have enjoyed it more if I took the class in the normal Fall/Spring semester.

I think its pretty good
1) More discussion made on diversity of women. 2) More discussion made on local issues here in Hawaii.(i.e. Welfare, Homeless, Domestic violence, teen pregnancy, divorce) in regards to women

Its use of different mass media to teach the subject matter, it really helped to understand the book in a way that I see the world along with the rest of my classmates.
The different the different videos we had to watch because it was interesting.
Learning everything about other cultures, ans societies, and what others go through. I learned a lot from this course and I know that I will always remember the discussions in class.
All the assignments and discussions
The diversity I have learned. This course taught me a lot about the different levels of thinking (micro/macro levels). I also learned that many people are actually open to homosexuality and just in general. I will remember how all of my classmates have shared very persoanl experiences and the good discussions we had. I also like that the instructor was very open-minded and welcomed if not all, many, many opinions.
reviewing the subject
The group discussion assignments.
The debates about the different topics we discussed...some of which were too taboo to talk about. =)
The thought provoking discussion boards we had. I learned a lot from these and a lot about other peoples view points from these boards. The teacher promoted creativity and free thought so I feel that people were very open on them.
The different perspectives of the people I attended class with and the ways it was able to open my eyes and mind to things that were previously not of importance in my life.
How easy it was to understand the way society is.
Nothing much. Because I feel this class is more common sense. Although the textbook is very good. Usually if the textbook is good, I keep tha one in the bookshelf.
The many "light bulb" moments. Taking this course has opened my eyes to many social issues.
The videos that I had to watch!
The liberal viwes.
My ability to see the invisible , confining control devices of our society.
How sociology works and itʻs effect on everyday life.

18. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked how even though this was an online course I still felt like I was still interacting with other classmates. It actually felt like I interacted more with my classmates in this course then when I go to school and sit in class with like a room of 20. I also appreciate how much Bopp encourages us to always think and never stop. When we answer a question, we constantly keep questioning ourselves why or how just to keep thinking.
It allowed me to work and it made it so my school schedule was not so hectic.
I really liked the discussions throughout the course because I learned a lot about the subject. It made me think a lot, which is good.
I liked how I learned a lot about the weekly topics. I enjoyed watching the films
I liked that all assignments were pretty much due on the same day of the week every week. I also enjoyed doing discussions and recieving feedback on my own posts.
very convenient
The online discussions. It was great to be able to see everyone's opinions and gain new perspectives on topics.
The open discussions with the class
I liked how the powerpoints, readings, videos, assignments and discussion boards all related and enhanced each other. The teacher provided timely feedback and she really made the online class feel like a classroom. The assignments were not cumbersome so we were able to actually think about the concepts So that we could really learn instead of just doing lots of tedious homework without really absorbing any material.
I liked that I was able to talk to others about the material and what they felpt about certain aspects of society.
I can do my assignments early if I wanted to. Also it saved me gas and time since I can learn on my own time.
The conveince of online. I like Mrs. Bopp because most of the assignment was done on the weekend. And since I work 15hrs days Mon-Sat, this gave me time.
Being a mom to a one year old and pregnant with another, online courses provided me with the flexibility to take care of my children and still receie an education
The fact that I had time to complete my assignments and quizzes. I left me room for my other courses that needed to take priority
Seeing different views of things.
Answering engaging discussion questions.
Ability to work at your own pace
I really enjoyed this class!
I liked that I learned all types of people and why they act that way. I enjoyed the topics.
How flexible it was.
The student demographics were diverse so it was very interesting to read about the differing perspectives on each topic. I enjoyed and learned from the required videos and reflecting on them helped to clear up any questions I had.
What I liked most about this online course was the interraction that my classmates, and I had with each other and the instructor.
19. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I don't think that i would actually have anything that I least liked about the course, I would just get frucstrated when I would have computer problems and sometimes my work would be lost. I got the hang of constantly reminding myself to check my Laulima.
Nothing.
All the work put into each week
I am a procrastinator and I am disappointed in the way I managed my time. Ms. Bopp gave me more than enough time to complete asignments and I did not keep up with them like how I should have!
Nothing
Only the technical difficulties I had with Itunes at times to download some of the course material.
The only thing that was a little annoying was the other classmates. Our discussion posts were due on sunday and most people would wait until then to post. This isn't really a big problem, but it was a bit annoying because I would have to wait until then also in order to do my homework. I suppose this would be a problem with any kind of online class.
It was obvious that some students didn't really think about the material that was assigned. Sometimes, they would just recount what happened in a certain film instead of thinking critically about it.
Nothing. This course was great!
The least thing I like is the discussion between classmates. I feel that we should just have more of a workload than discuss with fellow classmates. Maybe Im being ant-social, but I rather have more workload.
N/A
Nothing, I enjoyed it
Great teacher, but attacked students with her view of feminism too much.
Could not directly chat with other students, or get feedback from them.
FORUMS!!
N/A
Since this was my first online class, it was hard for me to keep checking up and doing the assignments. Online class isnt for me, if I did this class in class I think I would have a better understanding of everything.
Sometimes forgetting deadlines and not understanding some material.
There was nothing that I disliked. It was an overall great experience and I enjoyed this course.
That some of the documentaries and movies could only be found using itunes.
20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I honestly have nothing to say about any improvements, i mean, everything is done in a timely manner, she allows work in after the due date, and she allows every individual to speak there opinion and gives great feedback everytime.
I think the course went by too fast because there was a lot of information. But with organization and time management, this class is great.
Well besides the amount of work, the class is really good. This class has the most work a week by far.
I am not quite sure how this course could be improved. The instructor was great and the discussions were always very lively! However, some of the video clips were a bit long.
I think that the course could be improved if there was more discussions in the forum. Other than that this course was great.
Using a different source than Itunes to download some of the course material.
There were a few technical difficulties with Itunes.edu. I tried to download a few of the movies and the course was not on the itunes site at all. I was able to find the videos on youtube so I did not have to contact the teacher. But it did cause a small bit of trouble.
I think that more questions relating to the material as well as to put more thought in what it means in modern society would be cool.
There is no need for improvement. This online course was easy and well explained.
Nothing much, this teacher was very hands on through out the course.
I really enjoyed this course. With Soc. 100 being my first sociology course and first online course, I really don't have much to compare it to. I really enjoyed these psst few months with Ms. Bopp.
Keep your personal opinions to yourself and remain focused on the subject.
I think having open discussions, rather than just posts would have made this class more enjoyable for me.
1. Improving the grading system instead of a 100 point based class. 2. Give more points for assignments and lesser points for forums.
I think the course was fine the way it was.
Post just one discussion for yourself to get a grade and the other discussions posted to friends should be freely done if wanted to.
This course could be improved by having more reminders or due dates.
No improvement needed. Enjoyed the everything from the guest speaker to the readings. Very interesting.
The course could be improved by making documentaries and movies available on youtube not just itunes. It was frustrating for me to download itunes on my computer.
21. Other comments:
Have a GREAT summer!!!!
I loved this course because it made me think a lot.
:)
Thank you Ms. Bopp for graciously giving us many opportunities to turn in work and also for the extra credit opportuities as well! You are very kind!
She is a great teacher
It's been a very insightful semester! Thank you!
Excellent course! I would recommend to other students. Patricia Bopp is a great teacher! I had other online courses this semester and the teachers took weeks to reply to messages, they had incorrect answers on tests and never provided feedback. Professor Bopp was what I consider to be an ideal online teacher. She was quick with feedback, and she made me feel like I actually learned something...unlike some other online class teachers.
It was fun!
Thank you and have a good summer.
N/A
I learned a lot though :)
Thanks!
Loved this class and teacher, she was willing to go up and beyond to help you out. I loved the discussions and videos they brought things to my attention that I never realized and will always be thinking about the issues we learned about. Thank YOU!
I really enjoyed all the topics. I would have wanted to take your class in class instead of online so that I could understand more about this class.
I would definitely recommend this course and professor to friends. Great learning experience.
I had a lot of fun in this course. I learned a lot about accepting one's opinion that did not match my own. I also had fun watching the different movies and documentaries and using them as a tool to understand some of the concepts our intructor was teaching us. I reccommend this instructor to anyone interested in Sociology!

3. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
our class discussions and all of the opinions shared by the instructor and students.
Boring
In ten years I'll probably remember this course by having a consistent schedule. I really liked how everything was due the same day every week. The consistency really helped me in this class. I also like how she is flexible and allows leeway for late assignments.
Studying the different aspects of the issues we covered, like learning about the people who have disabilities and what they have to go through every day.
Being able to get a better understanding by everyone else's views and important discussions, and interactions.
the instructor was great
The different content that was both stimulating and thought provoking and gave me different insights on the world around me.
Learning topics that are new to me due to being from a foreign country.
The discussions held on the message boards.
How much America has to re-evaluate what the American Dream is, child care, racism etc. People are blinded by their own stupidity
I think mostly everything from the discussions that we had. Social issues like homosexuality, education, racism, etc. It definitely gave me a brand new perspective on those issues.
The videos we watched that showed our lessons in depth.
The social issues that we as a class discussed. To homosexuality, poverty, the different classes, racial issues, etc.
The teacher that taught me about social problems, many people in the world have them but i learned about them! Professor is always providing exceptional feedback.
The diversity of the subjects, the great course content and the meaningful discussions
Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by how Prof. Bopp includes herself in our posts and her personality shines through her teaching.
All of the information that I learned about society. This course provided me with a better understanding about what is going on in the world today and a lot of social problems that I have been unaware of untill now.
the discussions each class member shared about relevant concerns happening in the world.

18. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I loved that everything was really organized and that every topic covered was done so in a way where we were able to understand it and then relate and/or feel some kind of emotion about it. Because of that, typing out are assignments and discussions was made even easier for us because we now had things to say on the issues at hand.
i dont like online courses
I like how everything was due the same day every week and how there was leeway for late assignments. I also like how she would send out announcements to our e-mails.
I liked that we had weekly assignments that were easy points that counted towards our overall grade.
That the instructor was always there, and involved, she explained greatly in a way that we were all able to understand
I could do my work whenever I had time.
That I had the flexibility to raise my family and still had the opportunity to learn via a distance education course.
Having the flexibility to study on my own meaning days as well as time of day. It is a good opportunity to work at my own pace.
She allowed us to freely express our opinions.
Having a teacher that actually responds to every students post, and when i have a question she responds in a timely manner
It was definitely convenient and more organized for me.
That as a class we shared a little of our background history.
You learn facts about so many different things, it relates to everyday life.
This is my second course online with Professor Bopp. Though I sincerely would like to meet her in person, I feel I have a connection with the passion and energy in which she teaches her courses. As an older student, my opinion was always valued, my interaction with other students wonderful and it was all topped by a wonderful instructor.
What I like most about my online course experience is that Prof. Bopp made herself available and it was extremely easy to contact her. She replied back to all my e-mails incredible fast. Also, she explains things clearly and that help make Laulima easy to navigate.
What I liked most is that we were required to engage with other students. Usually while taking an online class you dont really get to know the other students or get a better understanding of a topic because you dont have the opinion of others. Here it was the complete opposite. You got to engage with other students, learn alot, and the material was enjoyable and very informational.
having to work and study with students from all over not just Maui. the flexibility of doing the required work helped me keep up in the class.

I liked everything.
It wasnt the courses fault that I tend to procrastinate =)
Being unable to read some of the material because it is not readable through my screen reader. I do miss the physical interaction of the classroom experience.
What I liked least about this course was the textbook. It was written with heavy opinions and a bias point of view rather than having an objective outlook.

20. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course was perfect. I guess if it could be improved, I'd say that since the homework that took most of my time was the two responces which had to be 100 words each. I guess less words or responces would have been improved the class for me time wise, but not the class in general. I can't think of a way the class could have been any better than it was.
it cant. it sucks
I think this course was great I would just suggest an improvement on the video files. I didn't really like how we had to log into iTunes and download the videos. The videos would be at the least an hour, therefore they would take almost an additional hour to download. I
None.
I think this course is great how it is. If people can't pass this class then it's their fault not the instructor or the class.
Sometimes questions were posed to me, and after answering there was no response when one is required; something could be done to initiate a response by the student who posed the question. More formal chat sessions would offer more interaction with other students.
One thing of improvement could be the resources given. The textbook was very biased and rather than being objective in teaching, it was more persuasive towards the authors' opinions.
Maybe you could add a project involved instead of only having a final paper? But honestly i think this course was by far one of the best i took so far. The material was interesting and the assignments were fun.
Have some group activities that will allow people to communicate other than discussions.
Maybe a little less discusion replys. Some students wait till last minute to post their discussion, which limits the amount of discussions you can reply back to.
N/A
I feel like this course is well put together and has a great professor. I always feel like discussion responses are interested but not needed.
I am at a loss for words. I think how Prof Bopp teaches this course should be a Laulima example.
N/A. Prof. Bopp does a great job!
What I feel could be inproved is the access to the course materials from itunes. Maybe if there were a direct link instead of downloading the material.
i can not think of anything at this time. the class was interesting and revolved aroud actual situations
less work

2. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The discussions and assignments we had. Really makes you think about your perspective of everything.
The content of the course is relevant to current world events as well as past and present human behavior and the discussion boards were interesting and disturbing.
The online discussion boards.
The inappropriate comments the teacher made.
I will remember this course 10 years from now because it has impacted my views on life and social relationships between people. I think it will really help me to understand and interact with others much better.
The informative, interesting and sometimes intense discussions online.
The videos we had to watch, they were so interesting.
How easy and simple the directions were. Everything was clear and I'll remember a lot of the information.
the way sociology has changed the way that I think of society as a whole and to have the sociological imagination in what ever situation I'm in or what ever people I encounter.
Continuity of lessons and tests. A lot of interaction with class and professor. Layout of course on Laulima was very organized. Taught me to build on on-line ettiquett skill. Made me use social imagination on social issues. Weekly shared discussions with class and professor made course interesting throughout the semester. Study guides were very helpful on the tests. Professor enjoyed discussions and was very knowledgeable about the course. Gave me a clear direction in choosing a university because of class discussions.
the discussions that I had with classmates and the professor.
....the subjects discussed and the way Mrs. Bopp was so down to earth.
the functionalist perspective.
The video links that Professor Bopp would post for us to watch. They really help put the things we were learning into real life situations and furthered my knowledge on certain concepts.
How much my teacher and classmates had many opinions and solid points that made me rethink some things.
...How it is relevant to me as a student and as a member of this ever-changing society. I have always been intrigued by the human or 'subjective' side of a study and I believe that this is what I am attracted to: the human side of a technical course and being able to 'name' or place a scientific/actual term to a human and social phenomenon. This course is awesome: from the main textbook we use in class and Prof Bopp, it's really a great learning experience.
Because of all the things that we shared/ talked about in our discussion.
Having great discussions with my fellow students. I had fun learning from other students and especially the teacher.
The video's that we saw!
What a great teacher I had and the subject matter of the course gave me great insight into the social structures I live in. I will always remember that doing online courses is more work, but the availability of time management makes it worth it. I will always know that Professor Bopp was a very organized, caring and supportive teacher.
all the terms we used
For one, how much society changes with the turning of time... what will deviant behavior be in 10 years in comparison to now? And for the second, how much a persons religious views, such as Christianity, and beliefs, to state their opinion... is frowned upon. My college professor was willing to meet with me about a big ,rather than, just tossing the problem aside and thinking that they held the only answer. From my experience in the past its not too often this happens.
The discussions on the different topics and the different life experiences people brought to the discussions
The relative, good nature of jane and the intellectual properties of the discussions.
The way Professor Bop always gave back feedback to our assignments and how well the comunication was with our group discussions.
talking about different social perspective based on raised, gender and beliefs.
Any time I apply my sociological imagination and think about how things conflict, function, interact and what the implications are of each perspective. I don't think I will ever forget the lesson on gender. Nurture or nature? It was interesting to see how we create gender roles.

17. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The discussions. :)
Patricia Bopp as my teacher. She was involved, created an interesting course, and was accessible to students. She also intervened promptly when there was a problem between students on the discussion board and helped procure a solution to the problem.*****Very important feature of her teaching style: Ms. Bopp also participated on the discussion board unlike many online teachers I have had in the past, which added a wonderful dimension to this course and stimulated dialogue between her and the students as well as between classmates. If I could grade her she would get an A/ME.
The online discussion boards and autonomy.
Due dates and assignments were consistent.
The online course allowed me to have a flexible schedule. I was able to study when it worked best for me and could focus on the material.
I like that I will be able to take with me a newer understanding on alternative ways to view delicate subjects. It may not always be the views in which I support but the key is to have an open mind and accept and explore every situation, even if you're wrong.
It was consistent
It was simple, flexible and worked around my schedule.
I liked that we had discussions it helped me understand the material better. Mrs. Bopp made the class exciting and easy to want to learn it wasn't just another boring class. Excellent Job!!!
Shared weekly discussions helped me to stay on track in this course and to use social imagination to social issues. Questions on discussions were not too difficult to understand because it I could base it on personal experience. Professor was not anal. Professor always posted announcement letting us know what will happen and where to look for certain things on-line.
The discussions with my peers. In many cases I learned information which made me think about issues in a different way.
During this course, I didn't feel overwhelmed with the work load. I felt at ease that we were allowed to give our opinion freely.
Be able to interact with everyone, and read everyones opinions
It was easier than I thought. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to navigate through finding the exams or the materials needed for the course but it was pretty easy once I got the hang of it.
I liked how it was organized and how she assigned assignments once a week. It helped keep me focused and it was good to have a set schedule to follow where you knew the day an assignment is due. Unlike another class I took online this semester she had an assignment due every Sunday, instead of just random days. She would also assign a new task on Monday mornings so you didn't have to check Laulima every day to see if a new assignment was up.
How much different things I learned!!!
There is a lot to be thankful for on how this course is done by Prof Bopp. Among them are: 1. The pacing of the course. I also think the weekly assignments and discussions are well-scheduled that a student has enough time to read and/or watch the assigned work(s). The additional resources (i.e. videos) also supplements well with the topics. 2. Prof is also on top of the course-- she updates everyone and there is the attention to each and every student and timely comments that are posted about our work
We get to share our thoughts and what we think about the matter.
I got to learn a lot about sociology and about social skills. I learned a lot of different terms and definitions about this course. I can apply it to my everyday life.
EVERYTHING!!!
The convenience to be able to do my schoolwork at home so that I can maintained my work schedule and go to school at the same time.
The videos helped emphasize using modern situations and scenarios to explain and exaggerate the material we read throughout the term. That my views as a Christian were highly ridiculed.
It was easy to understand
What I appreciated most is that Professor Bop put up assignments, quizes and resources ahead of time allowing us manage our time. Other teachers sometimes wait until Thursday to put up an assignment or quiz due on Sunday, Dr. Bopp was different and that is how I was able to do well in that class. Also she was very active in discussions probably upwards of 150 discussion strings through out the class, responding to everyone's posts. She gave us concise and useful job aids so we able to study efficiently. She also handles discussions with wide variety of opinions in a vary professional manner. Over all I am very appreciative of her professionalism and response times.
The topic on the decriminalization of prostitution
One thing that I liked about this course was how active communicaion was even with being an online course.
I can do my assignment on my own time.
It was flexible to my schedule and I knew the assignments and expectations of each week. Patricia Bopp is a great instructor. I really enjoyed the subject matter we covered, especially the controversial issues. It is good to understand each side of contemporary moral dilemmas.
18. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Because it's online, I tend to forget a few of the deadlines.
When the discussion board went nutty with personal accusations and misreads.
I think the discussion topics aren't always clear and there were occasions where the quiz questions were difficult to decipher.
Commenst made by instructor.
The experience was a positive learning experience. Many of the questions were thought provoking and people seemed to get really passionate about the subject matter. Although the discussion questions forced us to openly state personal views, I do believe that Professor Bopp was effective in teaching us the material.
Sometimes it did feel like discussions made some students feel uncomfortable, myself included. It almost felt like you were being attacked or belittled when your thoughts/opinions on a subject were being expressed but may not have been scientifically correct. When this did happen however, Professor Bopp helped to lighten the situation by explaining why or why not or warning those students who did not follow proper online discussion etiquette.
no chance to do make up work or missing assignments
The iTunes videos we had to watch for the course always kept freezing on me and at times, couldn't even load.
nothing
N/A
That I never actually met the people I spend so much time chatting with online.
n/a
Learning the course content and reading everyones responses
having to download through i tunes. It was somewhat hard for me because I don't use that program at all.
I liked it all.
None.
None.. Liked it alot.
I sometimes didn't know when everything was due. Sometimes it wasn't clear but once I got use to the schedule then I found a difference in my grades. It was hard to remember when I had the class discussions for each section.
N/A
The use of ITunes for some course materials - too slow to download - suggesting that UTube is used instead for videos.
I think it may have been more helpful to have the assignment questions as the discussion board so that the material we read could be explained and understood through others eyes.
Nothing
This course did not have any bad experiences like some other courses have
NOTHING, MWAHAHHAHAHAAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
There was nothing that I didn't enjoy about this course!
Too much homework and readings/videos that I have to watch.
I liked everything.
19. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I don't know how it can be improved. The class seems very well off to begin with. :)
3 discussion board entries is too much! How about just 2 instead.
The discussions could have focused on more controversial issues. It's difficult to know if you've learned anything of substance if nobody is offended.
N/A
The course was well laid out. Some of the questions that were asked touched on personal opinions that was a little uncomfortable, but I believe it was an effective way to get people to think outside of the box and learn to live outside of their comfort zone to a certain extent.
More emphasis on online etiquette and perhaps trying to make the discussion forums feel more positive and encouraging.
Make some way for students to make up missing assignments or late assignments.
Besides the iTunes video, everything was good. Everything was up to par, even the instructor was very flexible and willing to help the students in anyway she could.
nothing I wish the semester was longer
use of calender on Laulima would help me manage my time better when it comes to submitting and preparing for assignments and tests.
N/a
n/a
I think this class is well organized and structured. Nothing should be changed.
No improvements need.
Just maintain how it is being presented; just add new relevant 'stuffs', if any.
I think it is already good for students to learn and understand. It will just make it complicated to add more. Discussion is the best thing and what i like most bout this class.
Maybe you can remind the students by emailing the students when everything is due like our homework, quizzes and tests.
N/A
Nothing much outside of the ITunes issue mentioned above. Professor Bopp gave excellent course materials, her book was available to ereaders like Nook, she promptly responded each and every time with issues, disccusions, ideas, etc... This course should be a model for a great online teaching experience.
The assignments should have actually been used for the discussion board and vise versa in my opinion. Views from all persons should be expected no matter what their religious background is, we learn from peoples difference.
This is not in the teachers control, but I would like to be able to get the ebook version of the book so I can save money and read the book where ever I am at without lugging around a big weight
More jane bopp. More jane bopp. More jane bopp!
I think that this course is great just the way it is. She had great communication with responding to everything. I enjoy our group discussions to help each other see different point of views.
Maybe if the professor would explain the topic better.
Maybe challenge students to respond or comment at least once on things that another classmate said to encourage more conversation, rather than 30 answers to the weeks discussion.

Overall, a very solid course. Thank you!
Mrs. Bopp I am so thankful for a teacher like you, you made learning exciting and I loved being in your class. understanding the concepts for this class would have been challenging if not for the way you explained things. Do you teach any sociology classes after Soc 100 I would very much love to take another course from you Thank You... Ashley Belaski;)
I would highly recommend this teacher to anyone!! Learning was fun! Teacher was not difficult to understand and nor was she anal about grammar on weekly assignments, so doing and turning in assignments were easier to do.
n/a
Mrs. Bopp was a really great teacher.
Thank you for this course. This is a wonderful way to be 'initiated' into the world of cyber/online schooling. Thank you!
I learned alot.
GREAT TEACHER! GREAT CLASS! GOOD STUFF!!! :)
I would consider this my first online course, but at the same time I am taking three others. Enjoying most of the online courses I am taking (4) except for one. The professor for the ECOM course I have many issues with has blocked his review by ECafe (Prof Meyers).
Thank you Jayne for your willingness to work with all of us and help us understand how the materials we read pertain to our society today and the cultures around the world. And thank you for your openness to discuss my faith in our discussion board.
I would like to see other teachers follow the model of Dr. Bopp and allow working adults to read ahead and do assignments ahead of time because we have other courses, work, and children that is why we take classes online. Because Dr. Bopp laid out the course materials early I was able to compensate for other courses that did not. If other teachers would at least put up 3 weeks of material ahead of time it would make a world of difference for your core demographic.
Great course, keep up the good work.
Professor Bop did a great job with this sociology course!
Maybe if there's less homework.
Really enjoyed the class, considering switching my major!

2. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
As I go into my learning path ten years from now God willing;I will remember this course by the many wayswomen used to be treated and the ongoing fight for true eqaulity. For the real aspect of the discussion in this course. The notion that women and men although different in many ways, but at times deal with colonization, poverty, stereotyoing, and and the bold take over from what their normanl used to be because others refer to them as a mere object. For the awareness to look beyond my normal and see that people are people no matter their color, gender, social class, and wealth we at times have to face the same challenges during the course of our life. The issues such as the sexual violence, poverty and the way women are view in this society today and the domestic combat to overcome the stigma of our gender.
The amount of discussion we had with students and professor in the online forums and privately with the reading assignments.
How women have overcome so many struggles and still continue to fight for what they believe is right and also eliminate what is wrong
Not only by what I learned, but by the teaching style of the teacher, and I truly felt that she cared about all of us. There were so many excellent discussions, and even though this was an online class, I felt more a part of a team than when I'm in an on-campus course.
I'll probably remember this course most by all the discussions and assignments I had to do. They were fun and kind of easy and I learned a lot from them.
The visuals such as the videos, pictures, and/or the written examples.
remenbering the rights of womens and their equal rights with the men.
On how the instructor made her students think about issues in our society that I learned in this class. And how fairly she graded our work!
The materials covered about women and how everyday events effect both women and men. I personally think that this course really help me understand the world around me.
The Juggling Gender video, and the fact that it is a personal course. You talk about yourself some, rather than only what you learn.
The many struggles that women in our history had to endure for equal women's rights, as well as what they are doing today--fighting for those same rights.
Just the positive energy from the teacher. She was just so kind and supporting!
The content I had to read. It was very powerful and meaningful, and I could relate a lot to the topics that were being discussed, so it made this class that much more interesting to me.
how well it went, being my first ever online class. As well as remembering all the interesting films we saw especially the one about an at-home birth.
The interactive discussions that we took part in about the different issues of Women's Studies.

17. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I really enjoyed the diversity that this class had although we could not see one anther but the discussion made it worth whiled, I would log on just to see what people were talking about whether I agree or disagree with it. Of course I am a working wife and mother the flexibility of the online class is an added bonus.
The flexibility of being able to do work on my own time. The deadlines were clearly expressed and were easy to follow. The syllabus explained assignments and due dates and tools from Laulima were used extensively (Gradebook, Assignments, Discussions, etc).
What I liked the most about the class was tho it is an online class we the students had alo to of interracton with each other. and also the instructor answer my email very quickly
I loved how open I felt I could be with my classmates and instructor. I loved the use of videos mixed in with the readings. This was the only online class I have ever enjoyed, and perhaps my only college course that I have ever enjoyed.
I liked how everything was open and we could do all the work at one time.
I liked the class discussions because I could see and understand the material being taught from other perspectives.
I like the disscussion, because I can learn a lot of things with the opinion of my classmates and my Ms. Bopp
Professor Boop was very helpful. Although this was an online course all the reading assignments were due quickly, but I enjoyed because it helped me to keep up with then work. Prof Bopp made our online class feel like a lecture class because she was always around to help her students. I like how the assignments were commented back from her and she also adds on her opinions. She is a great instructor!
She was well organized and made the course easy to follow and learn.
I was able to do it in my own time, and the material was easy to understand, even if I did not have a teacher explaining it to me.
The class discussions where we all could express our personal opinions about a certain women's right topic. Also that it was okay to disagree.
I like the time limit she gave us on the assignments and the flexible grading. I also like how she supported our ideas and got into the discussions.
I could have discussions and interact online with my classmates, which was rare in my past online classes.
I liked how everyone could have their own personal input into the different issues that we discussed and that we were able to relate what we read and the films that we watched to our own lives. It was great that our different opinions helped us learn rather than caused problems.
It was clear what was expected for the course right from the start, which made it much easier to stay on task.
18. What did you like least about your online course experience?
So far this class is my second online class and I am liking the idea. I must that I was an optimist when it came to online class, but I think it is growing on me. I will definately take more classes online in the future.
None, I enjoyed it.
everything was great
Nothing.
I liked basically everything because it was fun, easy and I learned a lot.
I knew what I was getting into when I registered for a summer online course. It was pretty intense as far as when assignments were due as well as all the readings that needed to be accomplished before turning these assignments in.
none
N/A
Online was the only option I had during the time, but if I had to do it again, I'd choose an in-class for more personal connections with the subject matters.
The reading. Some were interesting, while others I had to read several times to understand.
If I had to say one thing I didnt like about this class it had to be the 3 responses to each discussion and having two to do.
It was accelerated, so it was hard to keep up with the assignments needed. Some of the material was hard to read/ watch because of how personal the content was. But, she did warn us beforehand and overall it was an enjoyable class.
no negative comment. great peers, helpful instructor, interesting topics, so, great class!
A lot of the readings were crammed or felt like they were at least. It would help a lot if they were spread out a little more through out the week instead of cramming 2-3 chapters in one sitting.
19. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The only improvement that I think would be giving the student a few hints on when the test material would be on, overall I really enjoy this class
This course really makes the student think critically and gives them the chance to discuss with other students and Professor Boop about the course material. I feel that this course doesn't have too much to improve on.
There is nothing.
I don't really know how this course could be improved.
Being that this is a summer course maybe having the class discussions and/or assignments due towards the end of the week rather than twice a week. Reading from some class discussions, it does not seem that all the readings were done before answering the questions. Having it due one time towards the end of the week, will maybe give more time to read, understand and ask questions if needed as well as a better explanation when answering the assignments.
just keep up the good work.
N/A
Keep it the way it is. She is a wonderful teacher who already have things in line.
none.
I think everything about this class was great. She gave plenty of time for us to do the assignments.
I would have liked it if more of the assignments included more critical thinking instead of definitions and statements to be reviewed, but I'm happy with everything and how this class went.
I would have liked more films to tie into the readings because the films that we did watch were really informative and interesting.
Great course, a little heavy reading in some weeks, other weeks not so much. So for the heavier weeks they could be spread out a little more.

The format of the class made it very easy to have communication and discussion of the materials with both classmates and professor. Online discussion topics were thought provoking and insightful. The guest lecturers also were a great resource over the course of this class.
Discussion and weekly writing assignments
I liked being able to work at my own pace, even though I have a very busy life.
Learning the Laulima system a little more. I could do the assignments at my pace, excluding the deadlines of course. It had me increasing in reading and typing on the laptop, as well as learning things about laptops in general.
Feeling comfortable enough to share personal experiences.
I liked that we were able to use the discussion boards because it allowed people to talk about things that they might not have felt comfortable saying in a classroom.
I liked the interviews and the discussions with my fellow classmates.
15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
N/A
nothing, I loved the class.
I got distracted while working on assignments.
I'm a touchy-feely, see you, interacting person. Like when we do in classrooms. I appreciate that some of my fellows placed a picture with their names.
A lot of people didn't respond on the discussion boards right away, which made it really hard to keep a discussion about the weeks material going.
Some of the content was heavy at times.
16. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Professor Bopp's class is very organized and her student expectations are as clear as can be. Nothing needs to be changed.
Course was perfect the way it is!
N/A
I think my only suggestion would be to keep students more accountable for posting earlier so that more people were involved in the discussions.
Require students post throughout the week instead of three posts on the last day. Have students rewrite a paragraph evaluating their own papers instead of just resubmitting.

The discussion and assignment topics were very thought provoking. The course was very self-directed.
I really liked all that I learned in the course material. The readings, videos, and guests were all great and very interesting.
how most to of the material was available online except the course reader that we had to purchase. it made things very organized
Materials were interesting and from a wide variety of perspectives, really gives insight into family and marriage from other perspectives than your own. I feel like I learned a lot from this course.
15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Well, an online class to me is never better than an in-class experience, however, I was too busy this summer to manage a "regular" class and had to take an online class. That being said, the class was fabulous. I just miss person to person live interactions.
if something on laulima wasnt working properly then it was hard to do your work
nothing, I really enjoyed this online course
16. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I can't imagine how to make the course better. I really liked the readings and I thought the assignments were reasonable. Overall a great course!
i thought the format of the class was perfect, doesn't need any changes.

6. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the course?
Breast feeding is good :D
I found the different and various topics valuable.
I am not a biology major, nor have I taken any science course besides my general ed so I found learning about the human body most valuable. I also found that I enjoyed learning about the various guest speakers she set up for us as well as her knowledge on laws and social norms of American society and other European and Third World societies and was able to make comparisons through her knowledge.
Her powerpoint slides were very informative and she offered those slides on Laulima to help us study. I enjoyed the videos and guest speakers.
I found the different opinions expressed in class added to the experience and helped everyone in the class realize that we all have different life experiences and opinions. The speakers that visited class also added tremendously to the subject matter and I'm very grateful that they were able to speak to the class.
Her teaching style is endearing and makes the course content relevant to students.
Professor Bopp made the class material fun to learn and class an enjoyable experience.
Jayne Bopp brought in actual people to better illustrate the content of the studies in class. The study guides are really helpful as well.
I liked the different angles she helped me to perceive things at, very interesting.
Mrs. Bopp is a great teacher and her teaching style is very unique. Like most college professors, she does class lectures but she also uses other teaching styles as well. She invites guest speakers to share and present information with us. She also uses short clips and videos that display a different perspective of the class content.
The exposure that she gave to topics I've never had exposure to before. Getting to talk to and hear from guest speakers was by far one of the best parts of the class.
I love Patricia Bopp as a professor. She is well educated in what she teaches, has a strong opinion but is very open for discussion, and most importantly has great effective skills to keep her students attention. I like that she uses a lot of visuals to help me understand the material being taught.
I enjoyed learning about the different types to contraceptives that woman can use.
the biology part of class.
Everything. Especially the guest speakers.
The information provide. The facts.
Professor Bopp was extremely knowledgeable, through study and through experience. She was also very blunt and honest, without being rude or condescending. Professor Bopp creates a fun environment and a safe haven for her students to learn.
the teacher
This course was a real eye-opener. My previous education has censored a lot of aspects about the human body and open-sexual orientation.. So I have really appreciated and somewhat overwhelmed at the realities of what I have missed out in high school and community college.
She brought in amazing guest lecture speakers with great insight on the subject
Just about every aspect of the course turned out to be very valuable. I enjoyed the guest speakers, the lectures, illustrations and videos. They all contributed greatly to my learning of the topics in this course.
gaining an understanding for situations I had never encountered before.
Learning "biological" and "social" perspective of human body, acknowledging "biological" difference in sex, realizing the social hierarchy created by men, invisible fact about "medical" treatment, meeting wonderful guest speakers and instructor.
Prof. Bopp has a great attitude every class and knows how to talk to students of all ages. She keeps the class fun and even with a class of more than 100 students, she gets us all involved and gives everyone a chance to speak their opinion.
The information was fascinating and presented to us in diverse ways that kept your attention and made you want to come to class.
Everything was valuable, from the very beginning of the semester to the topics that we are covering now.
I thought tha pretty much everything covered in the course was valuable. Alot of what we covered are topics that either will affect us or has the potential to affect us.
Prof. Bopp is the best professor I have ever had. She knows the material and teaches it with excellence.
All content was relevant to life.
This class gave me many different perspectives on various issues regarding sex, and provided me with information I would not have known otherwise. This class taught me to keep an open mind and look for information that may not exactly support the widely accepted norms.
Having the lecture powerpoints and exam study guides available early in the semester made it easy to prepare for the class.
Professor Bopp was very easy to relate to and how she taught her classes made this class very enjoyable.
The topics were informative and I especially appreciated the guest speakers in class!
We covered a wide variety of sensitive and interesting concepts in class. Listening to other's discussions and what others had to say was an eye opener.
Everything was organized well. All information was on Laulima, well organized and easy to understand. She is very helpful and understanding.
This was a very informative class. I feel that the content and the issues discussed in this class went above and beyond the syllabus, in a great way.
7. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the course?
Orgasms
The discussion posts on Laulima. I had a hard time keeping up with that.
Nothing.
N/A
Nothing. Even the graphic pictures we had to see contributed to the understanding of course materials.
The class size was a little too large for my liking
Nothing.
I really thought that everything was useful and helpful about this course. There is nothing bad that I can say at all about it.
Nothing. It was a great experience.
Nothing at all
I found that the ground rules that were created for the class were the least valuable and helpful; I think that since we are in college, there should be no need for ground rules because students are supposed to be adults. Respecting everyone's opinions and beliefs should be a "given".
being more openminded
the attendance sheet.
I think i would have appreciated the class more if it weren't integrated with women studies. But it definitely made me think.
none.
the textbook
It's not so much of the course itself, but of how a lot of the substance from the lectures stirred a lot of contradiciting views, and caused some arguments outside of class. But all in all, i really enjoyed this class!
Some topics were covered in my previous classes
I didn't feel anything could have or should have been left out.
Virginia Hinshaws guest lecture didn't really pertain to our course...
none
The students in the class were way too opinionated and dramatic. They made the classroom environment uncomfortable with their constant need to discuss things and give their two cents to every thing we covered. This, of course, was not the professor's fault.
nothing
Nothing.
Everything relates to people all info given can be used in life!!
Side talking from classmates.
To be honest, I really didn't use the textbook at all.
n/a
Watching videos/ video clips were helpful. The study guides provided before the exams extremely helped me to study and make good grades.
Even though it was a Biology/Women studies course, it wasn't as much biology as it was feminism.

21. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
N/a
I like how she set everything up and how she provided the proper slides on Laulima. I wouldn't have her change anything.
She doesn't have to improve on anything.
I think that ground rules may need to be set during the first class as precautionary action, other than that nothing.
Nothing, she's great and the course was a great learning experience.
I don't think she could improve- she's got a really great system, she keeps in interesting, i loved it.
I thought her teaching style was great and effective. The only thing that I could suggest is implementing group activities or assignments.
walk around during the lectures to stop side conversations / people's inappropriate comments.
I would have loved this class if it was taught in a smaller classroom. I didn't like how spread out the students were from each other.
Professor Bopp can reduce the bias she has on certain subjects. This is a science course, and I feel that facts should be the "main dish" of what is taught in class rather than people's opinions. If people do have things that they want to discuss and debate about, then perhaps opening discussion boards on Laulima would be something she could do to improve the teaching of this course. Other than that, the facts that were presented in class was straight forward.
shes awesome i have no complaints.
n/a
Why fix what isn't broken? She was terrific. She was real and very elaborate in her lectures. She related her lectures with actual visual aid (pictures and videos) and she made sure to include the students in her discussion.
She does a great job so far, with little room for improvement. Maybe she could consider more pictures in the slides? To be honest she does a wonderful job and I am satisfied with how she has run her classroom.
I guess she could have made it more clear that a lot of the topics covered in class are touchy and may be offensive for some, and thus students should refrain from sharing their views with other students via email and such. But what occurred in class this semester was not Professor's fault.
make males feel more welcome than women, since they are largely outnumbered. Easy to get singled out.
It would be easier for her to use a presenter to move to next slide. Also it is good for us because we have more time to listen to her lecture.
Nothing :) She is doing an amazing job. I can't think of any way to improve on it!
She doesn't need, I think she's an amazing teacher!
I think it's perfect just the way it is.
Just keep it fun! Always looked forward to this class
Nothing, it was great! maybe more guest speakers.
I think it would be interesting if she brought in people who have more "conventional" opinions on some of the topics and had them sort of debate with one another.
not too much class discussion
n/a
Bopp was great!
Maybe she can work on different approaches when introducing new topics and/or explaining someone else's view in order to be clearer.
I really like her teaching style, it makes it fun and interesting but some subjects should be less relaxed about and non-chalant.

27. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed how Prof Bopp used various mediums to teach the class and not to just stick to the old, traditional way of talk, talk, talk. The videos that were shown were always intriguing, the guest speakers as well (they were actually my favorite part), and some of the topics discussed made me change some opinions of my own, personal life.
I liked how the biology and women studies aspect were bridged together. I also loved all the guest speakers and enjoyed all the lectures and materials. In other words, I liked everything in this class.
I throughly enjoyed the speakers, videos and class discussions we had. It makes the class feel more...approachable and comfortable. There is no other class that I have attended that everyone has been so willing to speak out and participate in discussions and I'm glad that there is an unspoken trust in this class that allows and encourages people to share.
I liked the use of humor and playfulness to relate to the students and then the use of guest speakers who really were involved in the communities we were learning about.
Professor is an awesome instructor. She engages with her students which makes for a better learning experience for all.
the lectures and discussions, guest speakers, and learning about everything.
The class speakers- so rare to have to many great guest speakers!
I loved this course. She's a great teacher and I took a lot from the class discussions and class lectures.
The guest speakers and Jayne's sense of humor. This was my favorite class to go to
I liked seeing how bias between men and women can be found where ever you look/
I really liked the study guides.
The videos, lectures, and guest speakers.
powerpoint presentations, open discussions
Even though it is a women studies course, she made it neutrally biased.. looking at it through a woman's perspective, but not ruling out the man's point of view either. She did put up a lot of debate with her lectures too. And also, she made me appreciate woman's body a lot more.
The raw, in your face style that she used to present. It was a good icebreaker and helped the class get their wits about them so we could cover topics a bit more comfortably
The lectures were the best part of the course. I got to hear how all the topics related to women's studies which was also very valuable.
guest lecturers
Multi-points of views!
I thought the information covered in the class was really relevant to college students. Prof. Bopp presented it in an entertaining, lighthearted way but was serious when necessary because some heavy subjects were definitely covered. I loved everything about this class. It was probably one of my top 5 favorite classes of college so far!
Probably the topics that we are going over now, especially concerning issues like abortion rights in the u.s.
I liked the combination of methods used to teach. The Powerpoints, guest speakers, videos, and articles were all engaging. There was no skirting around difficult topics.
The lectures
The material covered was fascinating. Prof. Bopp presents controversial subject matter in a fair way and allows students to decide for themselves what to believe. The material pertains to all aspects of life. Excellent course, all-in-all.
Everything, the way she designs her class is great, easy to follow and understand.
I enjoyed the class videos because they gave specific examples of some of the topics we covered in class. In addition, they weren't 50 years old so that was nice.
I enjoyed the guest lectures, which related the class concepts to real life situations and made it more personable.
it was the most interesting bio course i have ever taken fun and informative
everything!
All aspects. This class was amazing!
I really enjoyed the topics covered and listening to the guest speaker, teacher, and other students.
I love her teaching style and how unorthodox her speaking is. She makes class much better than other teachers who are monotone and boring.

29. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Sometimes I, forgot about the discussion posts on Laulima. In the future, some type of reminder would be nice.
Maybe do something about the attendance sheet. I come everyday and I see all these people sign in and just leave. I think that it's disrespectful and unfair for the students who actually come.
The book could be cheaper.
N/A
No thank you!
that the class could be put in a smaller class room so that people can be more comfortable on what to say.
I think that the only thing I would note is that the book seems fairly irrelevant. One is able to ace the tests without even opening the book so I would just suggest stop recommending that students buy it if it isn't even necessary.
As a student, I have no idea how you could possibly improve this course. However, a lot of the topics and issues are very controversial. I suggest creating a comfortable environment that provides students the opportunity to speak their mind about it would help. I suggest students do written assignments about controversial issues.
The only thing that could make this class better would be if Jayne was able to walk around during the class, because people in the back were often talking / texting and sometimes were distracting. She would make announcements telling rude people to leave if they didn't want to be there, but extra presence around the room might be helpful if it's a problem in the future.
Like I mentioned before, I wish this class was taught in a smaller classroom so that the students can interact better with each other.
This is a science course, and I feel that facts should be the "main dish" of what is taught in class rather than people's opinions. If people do have things that they want to discuss and debate about, then perhaps opening discussion boards on Laulima would be something that could be done to improve this course.
nothing needs to changed.
Honestly, I can't think of a way to improve this course. It satisfies all the course objectives and remains interesting despite some uninspiring topics.
Smaller class sized would make this class much more effective for the students. With smaller class sizes, the Professor can better teach the students on a more personal level and help them more.
no improvements needed.
This course is very wonderful and I believe that this is the best course I took at UH. It cannot make any better for those who comes to class regularly.
N/A
I don't think it could.
Not much that could be improved ?!
The idea I said earlier about bringing in people with more conventional opinions in order to provide an opposing view would be kind of cool.
More control over the class. More class participation.
30. Other comments:
This has been one of the best classes I've taken in such a long time. :)
N/A
Her knowledge on this subject helped students learn and retain the information. I enjoyed being in her class and would like to take more classes from her if I can.
Thank you for an interesting semester, I feel that I can take the confidence of being able to express myself in this class into future course I may take. I will definitely miss this class!
<3
Mrs. Bopp is a great teacher! I highly recommend this course.
I love Jayne! She's why I want to keep studying Women Studies. What an amazing woman!
Amazing job, comical woman. A very refreshing teacher with a great deal of knowledge and has a vast range of knowledge in her subject.
I enjoyed this course very much!
great class, strongly recommended to other bio majors.
I truly feel that everyone should take this class. Many men and even some women feel bad, but without facing this, we cannot find truth. This is way better than class about multicultural education. I actually recommended this course to my friends. People feel scared of taking this class because it is also a BIOLOGY three hundred level class. It is difficult topic but I would like other people to learn from this course!! I believe that the instructor is very important. I don't know any other woman studies instructors but my instructor for this class is wonderful. Without her, I wouldn't enjoy this course as much as I did. Thank you so much, Professor Bopp!!!
N/A
One thing that bothered me was that we spent valuable (paid for) class time discussing "ground rules" when we are college students and it shouldn't eve be necessary. I understand what happened was wrong, but I don't think that other students should have to pay for it.
Jayne Bopp is the shit.

9. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
-reading Blu' haning -seeing a different approach to things -things are never black or white, theres tons of in between
The movie The Business of Being Born. That really made me rethink and reconsider my attitudes about pregnancy and birth. It also informed me about the ways in which the medical profession mistreats women during pregnancy and childbirth, which was very enlightening for me.
Learning about the different cultures and aspects of family and their influences
all the subjects we covered. Very interesting topics and discussions! I loved it! Opened my mind to another realm!
The things it made me realize that I had never thought of before and the guest speakers. Also being able to relect on the papers...
My Professors high energy, great family dynamics topics and interesting classes.
professor bopp just an amazing teacher and knows what she is doing.
That I was able to speak my opinion and learned from other perspectives . I also learned how to apply my knowledge in my everyday life.
HOw great the professor was and how she talked about real cases. The class was very interesting.
challenging my internal beliefs about many relevant and controversial subjects like abortion and homosexuality.
the wide variety of readings gave us a broad spectrum of information to learn from. We were exposed to many different and at times opposing theories which enabled us to decide for our selves what we believed, as well as criticize the societal constructs that make us think that way.
how safe of an environment it was, given the heavy material.
The exploration of a counter ideology within the context of american family and intrinsic patriarchy. Moreover the connection between feminism and complete equality that is expressed today (3rd wave). I came away with a deeper understanding of the issues faced on all sides, with all genders etc in relation to family and marriage.
The birthing process that women have to go through.
Professor Bopp's enthusiasm about the course material, the fantastic guest speakers who shared their experiences, and the amount of knowledge i learned from taking this class. Hands down, this is the best class I have ever taken in my entire college career.

23. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I would recommend more class discussion and dialogue. There ought to be better ways of getting students involved and in discussion about the readings and topic(s) covered in class.
GrEat class
It should be held twice a week instead of just once.
It was just an amazing course, I dont know how to improve it.
I don't think there is better way to teach this class the way she did. well done
Maybe more structure to the lecture of the different feminist perspectives. There's quite a few so it can be confusing.
dont make it once a week...twice a week would be better
the course should be closed to any academic standing lower than junior. Moreover i do not feel that there should be such staunch restrictions on class capacity and instructor overrides. Many very good students that would have provided insightful, educated and contextual conversation in class were negated due to athletic preference in enrollment. And honestly, i do not feel this class was nearly as important or useful to some of these athletes as it would have been to the others.
She is a very good teacher. Had a lot of fun in her class, will recommend others to take this professor.
I don't have any comments on improvement. I really enjoyed this class and a large portion of that was because of Professor Bopp teaching it. She is phenomenal! I would take anything from her.
24. Other comments:
loved all of the movies and readings!
The readings assigned were really good. I also thought the guest speakers were awesome, and I enjoyed the videos we watched as well. My favorite unit was probably the birth/motherhood unit where we compared different countries' attitudes toward pregnancy, birth, and motherhood. Very interesting and informative!
I love Jane! She was an AWESOME teacher! The topics we covered were relevant and she always found a way to make it interesting. The guest speakers were amazing too! I'm so thankful she brought them in! She always showed concern for students and was willing to help with anything. I highly recommend her class! She deserves a raise!!!! UH is lucky to have her!
great teacher
Love taking your classes
Very interesting subject matter and very informative and at times even entertaining lectures.
shes a great teacher...very fun, she makes learning interesting
Professor Bopp is extremely passionate when she teaches, she knows what she is talking about and clearly teaches us the material without biasses. I like her style of teaching and the writing assignments were an enjoyment not a hassle. THANK YOU! i learned so much.

26. How did the instructor show concern for students?
She would ask us questions to see if we understood the lesson well, or understood something she was just talking about.
she answers questions as best as she can and she posts all study guides on laulima

extended the deadlines for papers.
27. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked how she had guest speakers involved with the lessons.
she's local and made me feel comfortable in her class
I like how she's so real and blunt about things, because most teachers aren't like that. Most teachers like to sugar coat things. I like that she has a sense of humor. I like that when she teaches she relates things in the book to our everyday lives.
Made all power points for chapter and answered the study guide for us which made the quizzes great. She really emphasized what was important in the chapter and went over practice quiz day before actual quiz.
28. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
That she is an excellent teacher and knows her subject really well.
She is by far the best instructor I have ever had. I have considered taking her other courses even though they aren't related to my major just because she is so amazing. Wonderful person.
she has a really happy attitude and she is understanding
29. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, because if you want to pass sociology and understand it, she's very good at that.
Absolutely. She is an excellent instructor.
yes, because she hepls you understand and wants you to learn
Yes I would recommend Patricia Bopp to other students because she's an excellent teacher.
yes.
30. Other comments:
Jayne is a great instructor and is easy to talk to. Gives students many chances to succeed maybe too many chances. Her lectures are easy to understand and she is always open for discussion and debate.

Extending the instruction time. Have a WI- course. Field trips.
Im not sure it can be improved that much, considering you have a great teacher that excels in really helping her students understand all concepts. I have not been in school for 9 yrs and she has made me feel comfortable learning, which has been hard for me at times. Thanks
I think the course could be improved with some community service or volunteer requirement. It doesn't have to be a whole semester thing, it could be a one time thing. I think the students would appreciate this course more if we gained some real life experience.
best teacher eva
i have nothing to add as to Mrs Bopp improving because she was AWESOME!!
I would like to discuss other countries with families in the pacific, rather than just Hawaii and Japan. Perhaps, Tahiti, Samoa, Phillippines, Midway, Marshal Islands and other pacific islands that arn't talked about much.
In my oppion the course could have been improved by having pop quizes. also, I found it disrespeful for students to be walking out of classin the middle of instruction. I was disappointed with some of the vulgar language that was used. On a good note I've learned great things in this class.
This class needs no impovement
she is a great instructor, that is why i am taking her women's study next semester.
have papers for only mid term and final but grade heavier and replace old paper assignments for more group presentations. it was fun being engaged and talking.
more time to debate? i like the quality of the small classes, vs. the quantity of large classes.
There is nothing to improve in this class.
I find the speakers were amazing!! Maybe more speakers could come. Or hands on type learing where you go out into the field and see how society is in certain aspects. I.e.... homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters or maybe mandatory community service in those fields.
NEVER replace Professor Bopp from teaching this course!
I wasnt very interested in the course before I took it, but Jayne does a good job of making it fun, and making you feel welcome. Sometimes the material seems to have a certain bias, but it wasn't always an issue.

26. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Made time to address concerns, or to just be a good listener.
as i said before in the previous writing space. Excellent teacher, really knows how to explain what she is teaching so anyone can understand.
Jayne always encourages questions and makes sure that students understand difficult concepts. Jayne was always available to talk after class. She gave good feedback and she was genuinely interested in her students.
she loves her students and takes time to help them
she takes time out for us. she makes you feel like you have all her attention. she treats us with great respect!
Mrs. Bopp showed concern for students by allowing them to voice their own oppinions and express who they are and what they thought without prejudice.
She offered help outside of class
by being supportive
whenever we voice our opinions you can tell she genuinely listens and responds.
by sympathizing, but remaining positive.
By making the class interesting so that people won't fall asleep in it.
She listened to her students before and after class. she was genuinely interested in what her students had to say and offered suggestions to help them with their work and life (personal problems)
She lets us know if we need any help to never hesitate and ask questions or meet her in her office.
She always took the time to meet on a one on one basis if needed. She has extreme patience and VERY gifted in the subject she teaches. WCC has recieved a gift that you cannot put a price on. Basically "Priceless".
27. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
The subject matter and materials are current.
I liked her methods of teaching, really just taking the time to explain what she means.
I like how she made it so simple to understand to where it wasn't boring. Having the guest speakers she did have was very resourceful. Everything was relevent to what we were learning. It was different and fun, she made making come to class worth it.
I liked the fact that Jayne was honest and forthcoming with her opinions. She introduced and exposed us to many problems in our society. She applied this course to reality.
discrimination of classes in hawaii
she was so understanding of so many cultures and has had so many experiences. she is so knowledgeable. Mrs Bopp is so down to earth and she makes you comfortable and no matter your answer nothing or no idea is stupid.
Sometimes she may seem rude, but is just being who she is; I think some students take that offensively, but mature students understand her. I appreciate her passion and the arguments she presents to students. She forces us to think critically and challenges us with uncomfortable questions regarding the course material and life.
She was her self. I like the fact that she had alot of hands on experience and knowledgable in what she was teaching.
I especially enjoyed our close-knit class, though much different in opinion, the environment in which we created as a class, feels inviting and safe to share, making class discussions very stimulating.
I really like how she was funny and made us feel very comfortable
everything
group setting and open conversation were definately a plus
her personal experience, the course materiel, like i said the quality of the class was substantial.
She could talk to the class so that everyone could hear her and understand her.
I love the course layout. The speakers were amazing and the topics were very near and dear to me which made it more and more interesting to learn about.
I liked everything about this class. It gave me a new view on life and families.
I loved it because she always made things interesting.
28. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Will she be teaching other classes?
..
I loved Jayne's class, I think she is a wonderful person, she is well educated in her subject and she has a unique teaching style.
yes she is great
that she deserves a RAISE!!
great teacher.
She was a great teacher!
My favorite part of this class would have to be the people, very much including our professor. Professor Bopp's sense of humor, life experience, and continuous real world correlations makes this class a fun way to learn.
She is very entertaining and very informative. She taught me so many things that I had no idea about
she is great
<3 she is so awesome!
I would take another class if she was teaching a higher level class.
Kumu, Thank you for a great semester. Thank you for listening to me when I talked about my ohana and the cultural differences I experienced. You made me see that there are more out there like me and going through similar problems. Mahalo nui loa!
She's honest, and she makes things to what seems complex at first but once she starts to explain its like a "OHHH" thing. Then you understand whats going on.
Because of her I now want to pursue my goals even more. I will honor her by graduating with no less than a GPA of 4.0 (or at least to the best of my abilities!).
29. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?

4. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
it should be a course focusing on issues and challenges women go through, i.e. social ills oppressing women, to help broaden the perspective of the students being taught. instead this was a course designed and connected to fashion.
it doesn't need to be improved, its great the way it is.
I think Jane Bopp does a great job just as it is.
The book was a bit off sometimes, but really,I liked it all overall.
I would have liked to have seen more of women's everyday issues.
By addressing from the beginning that this course is all about the materialistic
I don't think I have anything bad to say about this course or teacher.
I enjoy how the class was taught so I have no ideas on how it can be improved. It's a fun environment to learn in, there is no need for improvement from my prospective.
This class could be improved by getting another book. The information kind of links together so it makes it confusing kind of cause it could have many answers depending on what point of view you are looking at.
I liked this course and I feel that there is no need for improvement. The lectures are good, the films and guest speakers are good, and the teacher is very knowledgable and experienced.
I love the way she teaches. Please don't change a thing. You are the best and wonderful teacher I've ever had.
i honestly think there is nothig to improve. she knows her subject really well. she knows how to keep the students interested in the subject.
The only thing that could be improved is the dressing out of context project. It would be a good idea to have students dress up and come to school.
There is nothing else that needs to be improved. Jayne's lessons are explained in detail with the assistance of videos, lectures with powerpoints, and guest speakers. All of the elements of teaching the WS concepts are greatly explained through these ways. Class discussions she begins are very helpful and interesting to listen to different people's perspectives, especially hers.
Cheaper books would be nice!
more group work
I really wish there was more time. Sometimes with the rush of the semester, the ending lectures are a tiny bit rushed and this class was so interesting I didn't want it to end.
