14. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
He knows his stuff well. Whenever a student asks a question, the instruction is able to answer it with clarity to answer a student's question.
nothing
Very Good
I would comment that he's knowledgeable but typing words and actually talking face to face is quite different I must say. Sometimes the explanation can be hard to grasp.
The instructor gave other means of information other than the book to help the students.

18. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Certain sections were hard, but some of the sections were interesting to learn about.
not bad
Very Good
This online course is definitely for people who have great not good time-management. Besides that, more math will help maybe. Definitely, certain sections are extremely difficult to understand. Discussion is alright but each individual's understanding
My overall evaluation is that the course was satisfactory.

22. My key suggestions for improving this course:
Maybe have .pdf's to explain certain concepts for clearly or in depth for certain sections.
don't make you're own questions. use the questions in the book and explain how to answer them. don't explain how the concept works because many won't get it.
The course by itself is alright, but it's just me who isn't prepared enough for this course.
None.
