15. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I think communicating with her students in a timely manner would help. We often wondered if the class was still going on in the beginning.
I think she needs to have a better organized schedule and have set due dates for all assignments.
It was a nightmare in the beginning when the bookstore ran out of the text book. The bookstore messed up and ordered the wrong book. students who didn't have the text suffered and was behind on their assignments. it was very stressful, but once everyone got their books, everyone was OK. Can the book store ensure that there's enough books for students who are registered for the class? I think there should be more interaction in Laulima. For example, ask questions on the bulletin board for everyone to see, and to respond to. We have been using the 'messages' feature which is not that organized as the bulletin board. The syllabus doesn't provide specific procedures/instructions on how to upload the .mp3 files from the resources link. What was the purpose of the microphone? we only used it once during the whole semester.
I think this course is better taught if it was a live class. There's a lot of procedures that has to be done with a software which we didn't actually able to practice because the CD or the diskette that comes with the book is not working. It's better if we had an actual feel of this class.
having the right text book with the cd you can use at home would be better. The teacher was very understanding and very caring on giving us time to do the work.
She should acknowledge the questions and concerns of the students as soon as she could. Sometimes, it takes several days for us to receive a response from her. The instruction of the assignments should be clear and precise.
Kumu Lum us an awesome instructor who helped me so much during this course!!!!! She is helpful and I really appreciate everything she has done for me this semester. Thank you Kumu!!!!!!!!!!
Tell us that we can't take the MOP tests instead of having one of the students telling us.
I think if she could respond to e-mails more often during an online class
Kumu Lum is a great and understanding instructor. Always there helping her students.
Mrs. Lum is a excellent professional, who likes to be involve in the development of the student and gives tools and advises for the student success :)

21. Other comments:
Do not be afraid to get in contact with her via email. She is willing to help you with all assignments just as long as you ask.
Medical procedure and terminology is a good instroduction to the medical field. this course has opened doors for jobs that could be for me. thank you for offering this course. it has made me think about focusing on the medical field.
are book did not have a cd that worked at home so it made thing difficult to do assignmets
There was some difficulty with this course because the bookstore did not order enough book to accomodate the student population. However, the bookstore personnel did reorder but they ordered the wrong materials. The bookstore staff was very rude and expressed no concern for the students or instructor. This made it difficult for the instructor to teach the course and even more difficult for students to gain the knowledge they needed to successfully comlete and understand this course in its entirety.
I strongly suggest to take medical terminology live
This course was very difficult for me to understand. The beginning of the semester was crazy with the book mixed up. I was so confused.
