19. If you were teaching this course: a. What would you do to improve it? b. What would you change?
Nothing
i would allow students to be able to make up one exam only and make all exams avaiable over a 72 hour period. it is difficult to find 50 minutes uninterrupted during the day. especially if you have a family.
maybe the study outline
I wouldn't change anything about this course. Medical Terminology (NURS 110) really epitomizes all the good things about online courses.
Give more options as to where we could find information on the subject.
This was a self study computer course and I do very well with those so I have no concerns or worries at all.

Remembering to take the quizes on time.
