15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
N/A
What I did not like from the online course is that there were only 3 exams. I did some online quizzes offered by connect but a quiz for every chapter would be a good addition to the class just to have more practice with each chapter and grasp concepts aside from the open book exam and homework. These quizzes would have only one attempt each however to really test our knowledge. It's a summer course so adding the quizzes may be too much but maybe the fall and spring semesters have more coursework. I enjoy coursework. lol
I had a problem with the Connect online homework and learning center. They were helpful but the situation was never resolved.
This is my first on line class let alone a class since 1972. I didnt expect it to be as intense. My mind had been resting all these years and it took alot to adjust.
The Mcgraw Hill Connect would have grading errors on some of our assignments.
As a new online student it took me a day or two to get used to maneuvering through this experience. Once I got the hang of it I found it to be very easy.
Nothing in particular. I have taken many courses online and so I am comfortable with the format.
It is the same with all online classes, not having someone to physically talk to. There are times when it is hard to explain what you are trying to say through an email.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Ability to do work at one's own pace.
I liked that Professor Kamida was very good at communicating what assignments were due and added helpful handouts and videos to watch in addition to the material to the Laulima page. Being an online class it was very helpful to see some of the homework questions/chapter objectives calculated step by step. Also any questions we'd have about the assignments he'd post the question and answer on Laulima. I found that very helpful.
I liked the fact that Mr. Kamida covered everything including questions that I might've asked.
What I liked most about my online course is that everything was graded in a timely manner and I could keep up with what my current grade is after each assignment, project and exam. Roy is also very efficient with responding to students' concerns via email.
We did actual tax returns.
The next best thing to having a teacher is the videos.
I very much appreciated the fact that professor Kamida made video lessons. It really helped me understand the material and lessons during the semester. Many professors just have powerpoints, which are helpful, but the video lessons professor Kamida gave us went the extra mile and made the class much much easier.
I found it very helpful that our instructor, Roy Kamida, was very prompt with answering his email's. I can be very impatient and loved the fact that his response was within 5 minutes of me sending questions. I loved being able to do my work at a time and pace that's convenient for me especially as a single mom and full time employee. I also loved and I do repeat loved the fact that I don't have to fight traffic!
I like the flexibility, the lack of travel and the efficiency of not attending in a traditional classroom.
That there were several resources other than just the book to look at for help and understanding.
17. Other comments:

Thank you Professor Kamida for the lectures during this Summer semester. You are a very knowledgeable instructor when it comes to taxes. I am eager to use what I have learned in real situations.
the workload was appropriate for a summer session.
Great class and I really hope to have him as a professor again!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I liked the Mr. Kamida posted his own videos that pertained to the chapter. It made it easier to understand the material.
Score updates is sometimes were late
The least that I like about the course is that you only have one chance of taking the Quizzes and Exams.
It is all crammed up into 6 weeks which makes learning each chapter very challenging.
the online test because there was a glitch during one of my exams.
N/A
Some of the questions on wiley were a bit confusing and it did not state that it was suppose to be in a specific order.
AT TIMES, I STRUGGLED WITH COURSE MATERIALS EVEN AFTER READING AND WATCHING THE VIDEOS, BUT WHEN I EMAILED THE PROFESSOR, I WAS TOLD TO RE READ AND RE WATCH THE VIDEOS.
I understand that the deadlines given are there for reasons, but I would've liked it if the deadlines weren't so strict. Perhaps allowing you to complete the assignments with a recommended deadline but a final deadline being end of the session. With the summer courses being accelerated and if you have other commitments, it can sometimes be difficult to meet those deadlines without having to rush or not fully grasp the concepts.
none
None!
Prof. Kamida's lecture videos are so helpful and well made. The interactive tutorials made by the WileyPlus program are not an efficient source for learning the concepts. Prof. Kamida sends reminder emails letting you know what is due in the following couple days which is really helpful when balancing several responsibilities. It shows that he cares. Prof. Kamida is well organized and really knows his stuff. I wish he was teaching Accounting 202!
yes, we do not need go to school and we could also learn something online. it is really good for students because we can make our own schedule.
I didn't dislike any part about the course.
It was rather easy to follow.
N/A
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The most that I like about the course is that you have 3 chances for the homework.
The best part about my online course experience was using the book and doing homework at the same time. It is truly a blessing to have the book out as well when doing the exams.
that it was organized in a timely manner
Online homework
I liked that from day one everything was set and we did not deviate from the schedule.
HONESTLY, I DID NOT LIKE THIS COURSE AND FELT I WOULD HAD I TAKEN THE CLASS IN CLASS INSTEAD OF ONLINE.
You could do assignments at your convenience as long as you met the deadlines given. I also enjoyed the fact that you didn't need to take exams at testing centers as that can sometimes be difficult for those who work full time and have other commitments.
the chapters were evenly scheduled throughout the month. the reading and hw assignments were great learning tools.
Given a long time period for quizzes and exams. Study links through wileyplus. Everything was great!
yes,amazing.
I appreciated having access to all the materials in the course, allowing me to proceed at my own pace.
It was easy to follow.
Scores were returned quickly!
17. Other comments:
Mr. Kamida is very prompt at returning emails. I was surprised how fast his response time is, especially if I am doing the homework and I email him a question pertaining to it, I receive an answer promptly.
Effectively crammed a lot of knowledge in a summer class.
Although this was an online course, Mr. Kamida was excellent in returning my e-mails within a day. He was extremely helpful when I was having technical difficulties with Wiley Plus. Excellent teacher!
I underestimated the amount of work that needed to be completed during the short amount of time since this was a summer course which made it somewhat difficult at times.
effective summer online course!
None.
I have to say, sometimes we really have too much HW. ^^
I enjoyed this course so far!

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
It helped me with decision to chose whether I should work for government or private.
This course gave me a better understanding of how the government works. It also helped me learn which area of accounting I would like to go into.
governmental accounting enhanced my personal and professional development in my concentration because i am an accounting major and it works towards the concentration. governmental accounting is also included in the CPA exam therefore it helped me to learn and become familiar with the terms and what this type of accounting is all about.
Course provided a strong foundation for a basic understanding of governmental accounting
I learned a lot about government accounting. I am certain what I learned here will help me in the CPA exam.
I interned at a Private sector NPO previously, and this provided a lot of clarity and insight on some of the things I learned there.
I think that the information taught in this class will help me in my future career. A sizable percentage of the CPA exam concentrates on Government Accounting and of course having this knowledge would be a benefit for either a career in Government or private sector.
I currently work for the Hawaii State Legislature and this course has helped me to understand a lot about the general accounting for governmental funds and agency.
It helped me get a better grasp of the different accounting methods.
30% of CPA exams are covered governmental accounting.
This course has given me an understanding of governmental accounting. Prior to this class I did not know there was a difference between regular accounting and government accounting.
I want to take CPA exam in the future. This course could help some of CPA exam. I have learned many things about governmental accounting.
This course has helped me understand the different accounting methods for governmental accounting.
I don't know
Taking this course will help me complete the CPA exam.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
I also had the book open and highlighted important parts of the chapter while following the lecture.
More videos would be helpful
the multiple choice is a good exercise because even though it has unlimited tries, it allows me to learn on my own as to why the answer is what it is and why it is not what i thought it would be if i got it wrong. i also think that the tests are fair, true/false also works when teaching yourself a subject
I understand that this is a summer course and time is of the essence. I think that it would've been helpful to do some of the journal entries and create financial statements. There was a little bit of that in the homework and quizzes but perhaps the focus of this course is more on the concepts and understanding of government/not for profit accounting.
na
N/A
I liked his brief lectures
Prof. Kamida has provided numerous resources that was very helpful on understanding the subject.
I like the governmental accounting textbook. There are some question there and able to practice my understandings.
There could be some feedback on the multiple choice and true/fale quizzes that can help show how to get to the answer at the end of the quiz

His method is already very effective. It helped me using the book while following his lecture and at the same taking notes from the lecture.
nothing, everything was good and i learned a lot from this summer class
None. Hands down best teacher I had. I had him for Accounting 201, he was my first accounting instructor, and I always take courses from him if I see he is teaching the class I need.
This is the ideal delivery for an online class. I really enjoyed it and found it useful because of the online lectures and supplementary material. Professor Kamida is great at illustrating topics using the white board.
na
n/a
He does well
Reading the textbook is really helpful to improve my understanding.
More feedback in quizzes and tests that show how to get to the answer would help students understand why they got certain answer wrong
Having main note that would have in the exam.
None.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
excellent Professor. He made lectures easy to understand. Most professors don't have the recorded lecture as he did and it was difficult to understand. But his method was very effective for me.
He is a very good instructor that cares about his students and answers questions in a timely manner.
awesome!
I very much appreciated Professor Kamida's organization, prompt responses to student questions and the design of his online course. This was one of the best online classes I have had, due to resources, visual examples, lectures, and a book that was easy to read
10/10. Clone him, and have him teach more.
He is a knowledgeable and effective professor! Thank you so much!
very organized and he seems to be very familiar with teaching courses online. Generally speaking I don't enjoy online courses but I did enjoy this class.
Thank you!
He is a teacher that gives you a simple course guideline to follow.
I liked his techniques. Wish he was more personable
He has a lot knowledge about accounting stuffs and always welcome to answer questions. I want to take his class again if possible!!
This class was pretty straight forward and was well organized

great. The primary focus is government and the terms are different from what I've learned from previous accounting courses but I've gained a lot of information that will help me with career choices.
I enjoyed this course
very difficult subject to teach yourself but if you are an accounting major, it is definitely worth the time studying and learning the terms and subjects
Governmental accounting is very different than the financial reporting I spent four semesters studying, but I actually really enjoyed this class and learning about another facet of accounting
10/10.
Very useful, especially for CPA exam.
awesome! I am confident that I will use the knowledge I achieved from this course in the workplace.
excellent
it was a good course
A-
Taking a Governmental Accounting course during summer term is good. Mr. Kamida always remind us of the assignment/exam due. He also gives us extra points. That really encourages me!!
Governmental accounting is important because you would need to know how it differs from businesses accounting
D+
Great class!
This class was overall very effective.

Thanks Professor for accommodating me in class. I hope you continue teaching the class the way you did because I've learned a lot. The topics in class will be very useful to me since I've decided to start my career with the government after graduation.
Thanks Mr. Kamida!
Great instructor, I know what whats expected of me. Mr. Kamida goes beyond the call by creating many resources for us to use. He also is available to answer questions if we need.

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
what like most about these course is that i learned about income tax and i also gained new experience.
I like that there was only 1 assignment per week.
it was very organized
I enjoy the flexibility of the class.
This class was organized and the homework was distributed promptly with feedback on it. In addition, the videos and handouts were helpful.
Roy provides extensive online resources.
He is very knowledgeable. Material and handouts are very detailed and organized. Now I can able to prepare my tax return.
17. Other comments:
Free tax preparation service is good for community. However, it was a distraction to students who are taking face to face class. The class was interrupted at least 3-4 times EVERY CLASS by people who wanted to get free tax preparation. Whenever they opened the door and saw the class was going on, slammed the door or talked to professor when the tax things start. They was waiting at the outside classroom and made noise. No one tried to make them quiet or to avoid interruptions. Think about it. The service was for more than a month.
Thank you Mr. Kamida for teaching me about income tax and making the class easy :)
Accounting is hard.
Mr. Kamida is an excellent instructor and now the tax book is so much less intimidating. This class has turned out to be my favorite class for the semester.
Mr. Kamida is very knowledgable about accounting and makes sure to explain everything step by step. It is an easy class as long as you pay attention and always ask question when needed because he is always there to help with an answer.
I learned something about income tax. It may be hard and confusing, but at least now I have some knowledge about preparing taxes.
Good course
I will recommend to other students about this subject.

all good
N/A
Professor Kamida is an excellent instructor, always helpful and very well prepared in his classes.
I really appreciated the videos that the instructor provided. It helped to understand the content of the book which was difficult to read.
The points for each project and/or exams are seriously too high. One mistake will truly effect over all score.
The amount of things to be learned were pretty overwhelming, but I enjoyed learning about taxes and other information which I can use in everyday life as well as earn credit toward an accounting degree.
There was nothing i disliked from this course.
N/A
I enjoyed Mr. Kamida's class!
The lack of ability to interact.
none
I have no issues with this course.
It was confusing sometimes homework assignment was on 2013 tax rules.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
many classes require an idiotic dialog between students, and this was thankfully free of that... secondly, with 2 exceptions, the grading was multiple choice, so instructor cheating in acc134 is definitely not an issue as it is in other classes
I had the ability to do my school work around my work and family schedule.
how to prepare federal and Hawaii income tax preparation.
I like that Mr. Kamida is consistent and clear.
Mr. Kamida is very accomodating and has an excellent ways of teaching. Congratulations Mr. Kamida on your recent achievement!
I was scared to do this course online. I had only done one semester online and was not sure what to expect, but I am slowly getting the hang of it and Mr Kamida made it seem pretty easy. His videos were very well explained and easy to learn from.
That the professor answers our questions quickly and not only that but allows other students to see just in case they have the same question. He grades our assignments fast and uploads the grades on time as well.
Kamida grades assignments fast so you know how your doing in his class
He was very prompt when you have question and shows other questions students have with his answer in case we needed the info.
I lik the coursse because it was easier to complete all the work. I was able to do everything on my own time with a deadline. I also liked the weekly announcements boar, which elaborated more elements related to the course by all the other students. And it was nice gaining more knowledge from the instructor's comments to all the assignment projects.
Assignments had reasonable deadlines and the coursework was really informative
Well formatted!
Video files were available both flash and non-flash. Video's was recorded by professor and very easy to understand. Homework assignment and exams had enough time flame for freedom of schedule.
17. Other comments:
only thing is an online tax prep from California covers federal and state for about $200 and takes only a few weeks... good quality here, but poor value for money, just like everything in HCC...
Looking forward to taking Business Taxes from you next semester.
excellent course.

I really loved the experience in this class. The teacher is great and i sure will recommend other students for this professor.
Great professor.
Great class!
Overall, i think it was a fun and fair instructor to work with.

Professor Kamida welcomed on-line students to live classes. This was the best online class ever to me.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
To get answer, I still have to wait (as I am not in class).
None.
I don't like that it's not instant communication, and no hands on help.
I least liked that it was very time consuming. It required alot of reading.
no comment.
Everything is reasonable. I have no complaints.
I did not like the text book for the class, it was confusing, without the added resources the instructor provided, the course would have been extremely difficult
Some concepts are not easy to grasp, the text does not seem to explain some tax concepts thoroughly. I would think that something as important as tax preparation would not be left to the students assumption or imagination. The authors would at least attempt to ensure the student has a good understanding by providing better examples and a thorough explanation.
Hard to ask questions
None
Nerve-racking to do the high point online test. I was always afraid that my internet would drop out (Murphy's law).
The video lectures were recorded several years ago and new tax updates in the book do not match with the video lectures which caused some confusions
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I have 2.5 jobs with kids. It is perfect for my schedule. I can work with my own pace.
This course was very organized by Mr.Kamida. His system was clear and he provided a lot of materials for all chapters from beginning of the class. These are very helpful for working students. When I have questions, he responded very quick by e-mail. Therefore, I did not felt any disadvantage of that I was not a face-to-face class student.
The work given was fair so that I still had time to do work for other classes.
I liked that Professor Kamida was very prompt in responding to questions I had.
Positive feedbacks on returned assignments.
I liked how the course did not require constant attention, yet I was still able to learn more with the resources Professor Kamida provided. Everything was organized and there were no surprises meant to bring student's grades down. Professor Kamida is for the students and wants to give them every opportunity to succeed in his courses. It would take more effort to fail his courses, than to pass.
I like that I can go at my own pace and ask questions on what I don't understand.
I liked that I could work on the chapters at my own pace, (sort of). This is another class that I would have preferred to have taken in person.
Work at own pace
The flexibility of coursework. I was able to plan in advance my assignments and adjust my work schedule around that.
Allows me to do things on my own time and make it fit in to my schedule
Prof. Kamida's lectures are so well organized and easy to understand
17. Other comments:
Mr.Kamida was excellent teacher...! I strongly recommend everybody to take his class.
I think homework/assignments should be due on a Sunday and not Friday.
I really appreciate my instructor's approach in managing online studies. He is definitely expert in Taxation course.
I wish Professor Kamida would teach upper level accounting courses because I liked his teaching style. He does not ask for much homework, and is readily available to answer any questions in a timely and complete manner.
Mr. Kamida is a very helpful instructor. He provides a lot of resources making it easier to understand the course materials
Learned a lot from this class
Mr. Kamida is a fair instructor.
Appreciated that the projects were doing the tax returns - practical. I also really appreciated the hints/ranges of where the answers should be. That helped me fix my answers before submission. Thanks!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
just the concept that you had to scroll back up to do certain problems towards the bottom of the screen for some excerises
I didn't like how my computer would freeze from time to time.
Everything was okay there was nothing that I disliked about the online course.
I disliked how we actually had to teach ourselves the material. I understand that it is an online course. But I would recommend students to take this course in-person instead of online because the material can get sometimes difficult to understand.
What I least liked about this course would have been the difficulty in examinations. I would work incredibly hard on homework and quizzes and I would study as best as I can for the exams and yet I would still always come out on bottom. I feel it's due to both the difficulty of the exams as well as my own fault for not putting in even more effort.
i was satisfied.
Communicating with other students
It was a fun course but the homework was repetitive.
Specific due date for assignments, it prevents me from procrastination.
No face time with professor but expected such being it's an online class.
How I know about the instructor's personality and respectfulness is thru only email response. Then, his responses were unfavorable to me because I have never talked to the instructor face to face, so I do not know about the instructor well. Therefore, it is sometimes uncomfortable communicating thru only devices to me.
The wiley plus assignments were a little confusing
I loved that Mr.Kamida had interactive videos
It was a little bit confusing and not very user friendly on an ipad which is how I do most of my homework.
NA
not enough videos to help out
The wileyplus homework was challenging because it made you fill out entire tables without any warnings of blank spaces.
There were not many things I least like about this course but during some late hours I got cut off of the web site due to maintenance.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The thing I liked about the class was the interactive slideshows to help us under stand the chapter.
I liked how the homework was due on a set day and it was all routine.
Even though this course was online I do feel I have learned just as much as if I was in an actual class.
I liked that the teach would post lectures for each chapter. It helped a lot and it kind of felt that this class was in-person.
Roy made this distance education course feel very personable despite the stereotypical disadvantages most people face through an online class. His lectures resembled those one would here in person and he was always very prompt with responses to questions. He never shirked his duties to explain a concept despite incessant misunderstandings. My favorite part about this course was the fact that Roy truly exemplified his knowledge about the subject by displaying it through his consideration towards his students.
how organized and thorough prof. Komida was.
You can start on homework early
It was just a great course in general.
Time manageable and gives me time to do my other responsibilities.
Ability to "attend" class on my schedule.
I have a control over time, so I can manage time to do.
Online resources given
that it was opened to continue
I could do it anywhere at any time and the professor made it clear that if we had any questions I could ask him.
NA
enough time t do work
The workload was spaced out enough where it was clear that we were required to do 1 chapter per week.
I like the easy access to the web site and assignments on any computer or laptop. I like that the course plan was there for you to see whats up next.
17. Other comments:
The teacher was a really good teacher he updated the grades every week and was good about giving extra credit to boost our grade. If we had any questions he got back to us really quick.
This is actually my very first online class & I really did enjoy it. It also help with practicing my time management. I would recommend this class to other students.
This class was overall good. It just got a little difficult at times because it was online.
I'm incredibly grateful for taking Roy's ACC 201 course and my only regret is that he won't be teaching ACC 202 online in Fall 2015. This class has given me a greater appreciation for professors who put forth great effort into their students and allow for lessons to lack nothing in comparison to a face-to-face course. Thank you very much, Roy.
thank you for a great semester!

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
This course gave me an understanding of the various corporate taxation laws and exceptions that are available.
I was able to participate in the VITA and it was such an eye-opener to what I could possibly be doing in my future career. I learned a lot based on doing other people's tax returns.
Taking this course has broaden my knowledge and understanding of how corporate taxations are done and how much it's involved. Hopefully, I will be able to put it into practice in the near future
This course has helped me to understand corporate tax
help me know more about corp. taxation and can use it in my current job
This class helped me learn more about how taxes work in a Corporate setting and it was clear to see the major difference between individual and corporate tax.
I learned how to be careful with the procedures in taxes.
The homework and test was different to know the problem.
I did not take this for my major.
I want to be a CPA in private practice. Knowing how to prepare taxes will be vital to achieve that goal.
This course enhanced my personal/professional development because it introduced Federal taxation, on a corporate level.
This class helped me to understand more about tax concepts for corporations.
this is very important course for my concentration because it related high level accounting.

N/A
More interaction. Live feed maybe. Or make it as a hybrid.
Need to be taught live in a classroom setting. It could be online but just has to be LIVE
The online video lectures were very helpful!!
no
Give us more extra credit to give us confidence.
I can't think of a thing. Prof. Kamida provided helpful videos, and the 2 projects were especially relevant to the subject matter. In addition, his invitation to assist in preparing real tax returns created a wonderful opportunity for OJT/practice.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
N/A
No suggestions. It was an intense course, nonetheless, it was very engaging and interactive.
Knowing how much information this course has to offer, I think it's not a good idea to teach it online. This type of course need to be taught in a classroom setting so questions can be raised and answered by all people present.
I think it would really be helpful if this class will be made into a semi online/in-person class. Since most of the chapters are tackled for two weeks, the class could meet in class every other week.
None! Professor Kamida is the best!
no
Making the course in-class instead of online. Some of the material was confusing to read.
Give us more example
Perhaps record a few short videos that highlight some of the more complex homework problems. They could be made available after the homework is due as a self-check and way to reinforce learning.
None. Professor Kamida does everything from emailing students about deadlines, to indicating how to properly study for his class.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Professor Kamida is an excellent instructor. He is very thorough in his explanations and is able to relate answers in lamest terms.
superb!
Great.
I like how Mr. Kamida tries to emphasize the most immportant topics on the lecture videos
Professor Kamida did very well explaining a complicating course.
Great teacher. Provides help when you have questions. Provides useful resources to study and understand the chapter
A+
a good professor that replied to emails quickly.
Professor Kamida is quick in replying to emails if we have any questions and posts a lot of things to help us with our homework, exams, and projects.
He is an excellent professor.
C
He is a great professor
Well-informed and knowledgeable. Never talks down to students, but encourages good study habits. Great teacher. My second course with him, and I'm taking another.
He's a very effective instructor. He was easy to communicate with and responded to emails quickly.
Professor Kamida is a great professor! He emails me back really fast, and also is very knowledgeable about tax concepts.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This has proven to be a very challenging course, especially since it was conducted online. It has been awhile since I have taken an accounting course online and has made me realize why I try to take the course live instead.
Excellent.
It's really not the teacher that makes me give this class a "Good" evaluation as opposed to "Excellent", it's the method of delivery.
Great professor to take tax!
Really informational course. Will help me with CPA exam
A+
none
Tough subject to learn without in person classes.
Its a great course.
Very helpful course.
This course was very informational. Roy's lectures really helped understand the content of the course.
The concepts were really hard to grasp at first, but once I understood the basis of the information by watching the lecture videos, I was able to understand the concepts more.
in my opinion, this course is very important for an accounting student, but in class may be much better.
21. Other comments:
Although I may fail this course, I have learned so much on material from the text, lectures, and assignments. Regretfully I kept getting distracted with personal stuff and did not prioritize my workload effectively and did not take into consideration the quantity of work necessary in this class.
VITA was such an interesting and engaging experience. I would want to volunteer again next year if given the opportunity. Mahalo Prof. Kamida!
no
none
I like the way he taught us. The lecture is easy to understand. If he could give some more examples to illustrate the concept, that will be better.
Professor Kamida is a really good professor.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Hope to have updated video lecture.
Not all announcements are sent via email as well
The thing that I liked the least would be that the Test and Projects weigh so heavily on your grade. I would really appreciate if the homework assignments were worth more.
Not having interactive lessons
Could feel more connected to classmates with forums or chat sessions.
Laulima was down for maintenance in the hours that I needed it for homework.
There was not really anything I did not like about my online course experience, Professor Kamida made online learning very easy.
Sometimes the answers to quiz/exam questions were incorrect but we were forced to choose the wrong answer to get a perfect score. It was a little deceiving when it came to learning the materials. This is more of a problem with the textbook's company than it is in regards to the class.
The only thing i had trouble with was taking the exams.
Not having a professor to remind you of certain due dates.
None
The course did not utilize connect as much as I thought it should.
Nothing. This is an ideal online class.
The part I liked least about the online course experience was that it was about taxes. I think I may have learned about taxes better if it were taught in class.
Nothing really. This is the best on-line course I've taken out of 10.
work at your own pace and schedule is posted ahead of time
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Teacher was very prompt replying to my questions via emails.
It allowed me to complete work when I wanted to with the consideration of my own personal schedule.
The best thing about this particular online course is that Mr. Kamida makes time to upload videos on how to complete assignments which is really helpful to watch when doing similar exercises. I also really enjoy that if somebody has a question he will respond to it in the announcements so that all students will have a chance to see the answer because more than one person might have been thinking of that question.
Having a flexible schedule
The pace and videos.
I was able to complete assignments at my own pace which made it easier on my schedule.
I liked how Professor Kamida put up a lot of videos that explained how to fill out the forms, and provided examples so we could better understand the chapter readings.
The communication between students and the professor was the best out of all of my outline classes. The answers were given promptly and the instructions were clear and concise.
It was easy to follow. Mr. Kamida always responded to questions.
Being able to do work at my own pace.
communication with professor was very helpful
Using the actual tax forms for hands on experience
I liked that the assignments required a reasonable amount of time to complete, while also testing our knowledge of the current lesson.
The work load was a fair amount
The part I liked most about my online course experience was that the workload wasn't too little or overwhelming. It was the right amount.
I liked how Mr. Kamida has a variety of ways for you to learn. I found his posting of classmates' questions and his answers. A couple of the postings caused me to go back and pay closer attention to different parts of the chapters.
it's online but when you ask questions, Mr. Kamida responds right away
17. Other comments:
Overall, I believe that Mr. Kamida is a great teacher. He is very helpful and gets back to students in a timely manner. Online courses are not easy to teach because it is not something that is mandatory to attend on the daily basis but he does a really good job at keeping up to date with everything going on in class.
Thanks
Professor Kamida is a very good online teacher, nad made the class as easy as possible to learn online.
This is a great and practical class taught by a knowledgeable professor. I highly recommend it to others, even if they are not planning on being an ACC major.
great course, and you learn a lot.

Great class! I learned what needed to be learned.

I liked everything about my online course.
The only recommendation I have that even though the examples are calculated the same way, could you provide the correct answer for this year. Maybe on the announcement section.
The projects are challenging, but the instructor is willing to help.
As a "non-traditional" student (that means old fart), I miss the classroom experience.
No comment.
Emailing questions to the professor took along time. Video lectures were not updated to current year.
N/A
Sometime I did not have enough time to read textbook. But I have to study by myself during the online class.
The exams.
Nothing-- no complaints.
None. I've had a very positive experience thus far.
Mr. Kamida was a great instructor. He made it easy to understand the course as well as the material. I would take other classes if he we're the instructor.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked how prompt Mr. Kamida was in returning assignments and responding to e-mails. I also liked that there were videos available to help complete an assignment.
Everything.
Preparing Tax forms for projects, it allows you to get a hands on the real life situation when filing tax returns. The Income tax laws!!! very helpful!!!! Now, I understand why we get those numbers, things you can itemized, deduct, and credits from our AGI.
The class was well paced and allowed me enough time to complete assignments and tests.
I like how Mr. Kamida is very knowledgeable and organized about the subject. His videos are very helpful in understanding the material thoroughly. I also liked how the instructor posts his answers or advise publicly in Laulima for students who have the same questions. He also regularly remind us on the upcoming assignments and exams.
I appreciate the many videos Mr. Kamida has created for us. They take the place of an in-class lecture with the added advantage of repeatable access. I also find great value in Mr. Kamida's posting the questions and answers from other students, as they always help me tackle similar issues.
My online course experience with Professor Kamida is the best although this is my first attempt to experience online course. He is expert in his field, helpful to students by giving relevant comments in the assignments returned. I appreciate his various videos ellaborating each topics with his good examples. I definitely take his other course next semester and I am very thankful I have a very motivating professor to keep up my accounting career.
Being able to review the lecture whenever I want.
I liked how our teacher was able to answer our questions in a timely manner. He also has all the answers for everyone's questions. No matter what Mr. Kamida was able to help us in any way
Mr.Kamida's lecture videos were very helpful to understand. Tax is not easy subject. When I read textbook, sometime I did not understand well. However, Mr. Kamida explained with different examples and easy words. These were really helpful to understand.
Projects and forms practice
The instructor is very knowledgeable in his field. Very on tract with the syllabus schedule.
The fact that its taught in a way that is very understandable. When I email Mr. Kamida I get a reply pretty quick. Also, I appreciate the scores being updated immediately after assignment or test is due.
17. Other comments:
This semester was the first time I enrolled in on-line classes. Professor Kamida was very timely and courteous with his responses. I enjoyed the experience and look forward to another semester.
Very good course, well suited for those who wants to major accounting and wants to be a tax preparer. Very helpful course and instructor.
Mr. Kamida is the perfect instructor for ACC 134. He is very dedicated in helping the students learn and gives them chance to practice and experience how to do tax return with his free tax program
I am amazed at the speed with which Mr. Kamida responds to my questions. He is also very patient with those of us who are easily confused.
I would recommend Professor Kamida to other Accounting Students.
Great course to take, and definitely understandable
I strongly recommend to take Mr.Kamida's class. Mr.Kamida's lecture was very helpful and his semester plan was very good for working students. He responds your email very fast and helpful. Mr. Kamida was one of my best teacher in my college.
He deserves a raise!!!! He goes beyond what a normal teacher would do. Love the video lectures, it helped me a lot!!!!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
My learning style somewhat differs from Prof. Kamida's teaching style, so I struggle a bit. However, he is excellent in responding quickly to any questions and very thorough. Excellent class.

i wish all the videos were updated.. but other than that it was great!
I like everything an online course can offer.
None.
I had a very informational semester. Being a business owner myself, I was able to relate this semester entirely to the taxes incorporated with running a successful business or receiving money in any instance.
The textbook is a bit hard to follow. Theres a lot of words and not enough explanation for the examples.
Nothing.
I can't name anything that I liked least about this course experience. If I have to choose one thing that I did not like is the fact that it was not a "live" class where students could have asked questions on the spot. This would help because my classmates may ask things I did not even know I didn't know. But that's the beauty of an online course. So maybe think about offering this course live.
The thing I liked least about online courses in general is that you are not able to be in the classroom for teacher instruction, however Prof. Kamida provides an abundant amount of EXCELLENT resources, from video class lectures on each chapter, step by step instructions as well as real world articles that are relevant to our class. Prof Kamida is Always, prompt with any questions that I have about the course material, which is a very important thing when taking courses online. Excellent class!
What I liked least is probably the amount of reading required for classes on line.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Prof. Kamida's timely responses.
Mr. Kamida posted other students question on Laulima which helped me to finish my homework.
convenience
I like the convenience of online courses. Roy posts everyone's questions, and his responses which is very helpful.
Easy to communicate with teacher
N/A
that i could my work on my own time. :) also even though the chapters were super long, i liked the amount of time we were allowed to go through the chapter.
I like everything an online course can offer.
Questions from other students where posted along with the teacher's answers. Some students may have not have the same problem but it is nice that it was shared with everyone. Also, the teacher is very generous with his reminders concerning important upcoming due dates.
Professor Kamida offered tips to help with the weekly homework assignments which helped in doing my best in the work.
The work was a good amount not much of an overload on homework.
I like how Mr. Kamida presented the course materials on this course. The powerpoint, videos, and the solution materials are very helpful in understanding the course. Mr. Kamida promptly return any email and with completed explanation for any questions raised on the subject matter. He is very helpful and always available.
I liked everything about this online course. So instead of answering what I liked most, I'll just list all the stuff I mean about 'everything' I liked the fact that Mr. Kamida is very organized and keeps the workload pretty even throughout the semester. His video lectures are thoroughly explained, and are very helpful. If you're like me who are not very keen at reading thick tax textbooks, you can probably get by the course just by these video lectures alone---although to become a good tax professional, one must understand that they will need to refer to the textbooks on their own. Kamida also replies promptly with emails, unlike some prof. I've had in the past (online or live). I also like the extra credits because even though some students may have gotten some things wrong on exams/projects, they've [hopefully] learned from those mistakes....and so these extra credits are a great way to make up on those lost points/lesson learned from mistakes. I hope that makes sense. . .
I liked the way Prof. Kamida organizes the course. It is very clear and simple. You know what is due when its due and what steps you need to take to ensure you pass this course. Although the course material can be very overwhelming at times, as long as you follow the steps Prof. Kamida sets forth, you will have an easier time. Another thing, the extra resources provided are excellent and Prof. Kamida's responsiveness is also excellent.
What I liked the most is the flexibility that an online course offers. Also because I have a business, now I have more knowledge on my business taxes.
17. Other comments:
Excellent class. My only 'issues' (if you can call them that) with the class are 100% because of my learning style. I have still learned a lot
n/a
N/A
i would definitely recommend Mr. Kamida to other students, he holds professionalism and definitely knows his subject!
I like that weekly assignment are posted two weeks before it is due or even earlier. It allows the students to work ahead and have plenty of time to study if the work requires some time to do. The same goes for the projects and exams.
I had Mr. Kamida on both Tax courses. I enjoyed being in his class.
I appreciate the video lectures and how Mr. Kamida so kindly made non-flash versions on some of them. I'm hoping he will create non-flash for all of them so that I am able to save them for reference. Thank you!
Thanks for a great semester.

N/A.
I took the live class with Roy Kamida. The class did require the use of Wiley Plus, which is an online site that we take our tests and do our homework assignments on. It was easy to use. No problems occurred.
none
There's nothing that I really didn't like.
I didn't really dislike anything about this course.
sometimes it would kick you out of the test before the time is up.
I didn't like the thought of it being more lecture based. I wish there was a little more in class interaction with students. I think that would bring a more lively environment. Just a thought.
Staring at the computer monitor for hours which hurts the eyes
My least favorite thing about WileyPlus was that sometimes it would crash/log me out in the middle of completing my homework without having the chance to save it first, and that sometimes it says that I already have a session open when I log in to try and get to my assignments.
Nothing
It was a live class.
It was all good
I felt like this course was like trying learn a new language. to fully understand the material, I felt like you really had to devote a lot of time to studying if you wanted to understand this subject completely.
There wasnt anything I disliked, I enjoyed the course, Mr. Kamida is great! I wish he was teaching 202 next semester!
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Everything! All the resources were readily available online from the beginning of the semester, everything you needed was there! In-class meetings were clearly made available as well as out-of-class, in-person help from tutoring services. Lots of opportunities to earn your grade were made available, the professor communicated everything to all of the students, questions were answered promptly, assignments were reviewed, and enough time was given to prepare and do everything in the class. For students who know how to manage their time and even those who don't, this class was easily manageable on a subject that seems difficult but was easily made understandable thanks to the instructor's organization and knowledge. It was a pleasure to take this class!
I took the live class.
we had a review before every exam
What I liked most about my online course experience is that we were able to learn in both ways, in- class and online lectures. We were also given a book. There were many resources to learn in this class and he also gave one day a week in class to do homework and to give help if we had any questions.
What I liked most about this course was that we could do the work online, but still attend class to ask questions and get help.
you could do it a anytime.
I like how we were able to leave early if we finished our homework on Wednesdays. :)
the ability to pace myself to complete assignments and not having to rush.
It was structured really well and it was fairly simple and easy to complete.
I like how it gave the results fast.
It was a live class.
Easy to keep track of, I can use my own pace
I was able to complete assignments when it was convenient for me as long as it was completed by the due date.
My class is a hybrid! This first time being in a hybrid class and I loved it! Taking courses online can be difficult but since I was able to see Professor Kamida, and Jenny the tutor twice a week I was able to seek the help I needed. I really liked how the course was organized made it easier for me to manage my time!
17. Other comments:
Mr. Kamida tries to help students relate to the accounting subjects, but I feel that we would have learned better through exercises and activities in class.
Great teacher! He knows his subject and is willing to help.
You're an awesome professor. I'll most definitely recommend you to any other business major students.

Professor Kamida is an excellent instructor. He is knowledgeable about the subject and always there to answer questions.
Mr. Kamida knew his material very well, and I actually retained more with him, than I did with my last accounting.
I encourage anyone who needs an accounting credit to take it with Professor Kamida! Great teacher!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I did not like that i did not know anyone in the class
No answers to homework problems available
It was easily manageable for an online course. I liked how the assignment deadlines were consistently set on Sundays.
it was online.
Learning it on my own.
I really respected how he broke up the workload for us. It was one chapter a week, and when there was a test, he let us study for the whole week. Some teachers give 2 to 3 chapters a week, so I really liked how he wanted us to really absorb the information of the specific chapter that week. It made me understand the course better and really take my time to learn it.
There was nothing I liked least about this course.
The work can be very difficult at times. The website that is used to complete our work is very complicated to learn how to use and to navigate. It would be nice is the website were more user friendly.
It was difficult at times to understand the material without face to face instruction, but Professor Kamida was willing to answer any questions.
Sometimes it was hard to describe the problem that I had with the assignments through email. I ended up taking my questions to a tutoring center to get help.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
it was very organized
The website Wiley has extra exercises to help understand the chapter
I enjoyed the freedom to do the assignments in advance.
I liked the fact that this course used Laulima and an external website. I also liked that you could work ahead but still had deadlines and grades were available the day after the due date.
I liked that Kamida was very organized from the beginning of the semester and had clear expectations. I feel this is extremely important, especially in an online class.
good with time
Feeling free
I would suggest chapter activities to make accounting enjoyable for us.
I really like that this course was well organized and very flexible.
This professor was very clear and concise about what we would be doing in his class and what the due dates were.
I appreciated the schedule that was given right at the beginning of the semester so it was easy for me to plan ahead.
It is conveient and I had the liberty of going to do my personal daily duties and coming back to do tutorials from lectures, homework & tests on my time.
17. Other comments:
It would be nice if in the beginning of the semester if you had your students post and introduction post or something. When i would get stuck on assignments I wished i knew someone who was in my class so they could help me.
Very great class. I'm very glad he offered extra credit.

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
This class gives me a opportunity to review and learn many knowledge that I had learned in the lower level tax class.
This course helped my enhance me personally and in my professional development in my major. This class will help me when I do my own taxes as well as my friends and family, also in my profession.
Excellent class for preparation for corporate tax class
I learned a lot of information that will help me prepare my taxes even better
I learned a lot from the small details in doing tax and some complicated and intricate calculations.
This course gave me an introduction to a potential future profession in tax preparation. It also showed the differences between financial accounting and tax preparation.
This course was beneficial because it helped me understand and practice doing tax returns.
I am not using this course to fulfill my major requirement, however, this class teaches me basis individual tax concepts beyond the tax program itself and helps me think more on my own personal tax planning.
This course taught me the tax portion of accounting and what it is like to prepare a tax form. It helped me to understand what it would be like to do taxes and have to prepare the different forms and schedules.
This class was very informative, and I learned a lot of tax laws, and calculations. We also were able to do some project tax returns.
This course give me a idea of how tax are. Once day, I can do my own tax without paying someone to do my tax. To help me save and at the time I'm learning taxation material to help build my experience.
The course provided an in depth explanation of the tax system and how to account for them for personal and flow through businesses.
Provides more in depth of tax. You can see basic accounting principles are applied to some tax forms
Increased my tax accounting knowledge
I learned a lot in this course. It enhanced my personal and professional development in my major by completing the federal income tax forms. Now, I have gained the knowledge throughout this semester and feel comfortable to do taxes on my own this year.
I gained a basic understanding of tax compared to the little I knew from before.
Learning what to include and exclude on tax forms as well as filling them out.
I became more comfortable with filling out taxation firms.
Gained valuable skills and insight into the federal income tax system. This will aid tremendously in both my personal and professional development.
It helped me to understand the different aspects of correctly doing taxes.
I'm not sure if it is a requirement but if its think it should be because taxes are a big part of accounting and if you are getting into the field you should at least have some exposure to it. How else will one know it if they are not forced to look at it as a part of their core classes.
I was already familiar with the process of calculating federal taxes, it was an eye opener as to exactly what it entails to ensure that the calculations are the correct amounts and the various policies, regulations, and exceptions that occur while calculating and filing for federal taxes.
This course has helped me learned more about taxation than I already know.
great teacher and the lecture is very clear. Kamida is very professional and knowledgeable. Taking his taxation class, you can learn a lot and apply what you learned from him to your real tax world. Supper useful !!! huimin yao
Everything in the course was a learning experience.
Help to better understand tax
It was very interesting to understand the tax forms and see how much different types of laws may change every so often. Tax requires a lot of thinking and remembering.
As someone who is interested in tax preparation this course is very good.

more short example problems would be helpful.
Appreciated the way the instructor uploaded videos from his other accounting class as those were very helpful.
Nothing.
I honestly don't think that there's anymore activities that can be added on. Maybe some short problems in class would be nice.
No additional activities needed. The additional resources already provided by Professor Kamida are sufficient.
I liked that the course materials were all online. I found it helpful to use the study tools offered through my accounting lab.
Having more class participation activities would be helpful.
This is a good course for student to understand the concepts behind individual taxation.
None. Professor Kamida explains concepts very thoroughly in class, and he also uploads videos if we need more help.
I think we should have group work because we can work on W2 form or 1099s as a group. That way student understand more about 1099s form how to do it.
Professor Kamida has added additional resources that help explain the course material.
Maybe hands on tax forms filing "old way," might enhance learning
None
I wish that we would be able to practice on the tax program, so we can check errors immediately.
I think going more in-depth with on using the actual tax forms would help to not only to understand the projects better but to get an idea of a real life situation without the use of tax software.
Did not care for the low-cost version of the textbook. Would have preferred the original bound version.
Should do more tax returns. For a tax class, I expected to complete more tax returns instead of only 5.
The resources provided were effective as there was always material to practice, but the course wasn't overwhelming.
None, everything was either available through the text, Laulima, or websites.
Lecture notes, study guide
I don't feel any additions are necessary for this course.
none yet
Course is good as it is
More tax forms would help.
I feel like the website for this class was great, no other resources needed besides the book.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
I like the way Mr. Kamida teach us, explaining clearly and respond promptly. However, the text book for this class is not logically in order, so it makes us confused. Every time, I had to use my lower level tax book to refer and review.
I liked the teacher's examples. Sometimes off the wall, but relevant and helped to remember the material.
None
Maybe not teach it on a Saturday. And have breaks in between lectures.
Nonr.

Although he is very thorough with explaining the tax concepts of each chapter, he does not need to go through most of the homework questions with us. He spends at least an hour of class time to go through the homework questions, but I think he should minimize that time. Maybe only go through one question?
Have more group work to help student understand how to do the tax form. where to apply for even line on tax form. show some video during class time about tax.
The topics for this class are extensive, which makes it difficult to keep up with.
In class tax preparations would make it more enticing to learn tax.
None
I would like to thank Professor Roy Kamida so much for teaching us a valuable income tax class. I hope that you can continue teaching for a long time. Please do not retire yet :-).
I would have preferred if we could have went through more examples in class related to the online homework for each chapter.
Make the class a little more interesting
Change the format of quizzes. 100+ true or false questions is difficult. If there were some T/F, multiple choice, and a tax return, it would be better.
I thought his teaching style was very effective.
maybe more application and less theory talk either as part of classwork or homework
The structure of this course would be perfect for online instruction. The lectures could be prerecorded or available through Blackboard and other materials available either through Laulima or the publisher's website.
Give us lecture notes and study guides.
no suggestions. like his teaching style and methods.
I liked when he went over homework problems so it was easier to understand when doing it at home.
Course is good as it is
Maybe have a break between the class, not having it so long would help make things focused. Also give examples and let the students try for themselves. Try maybe asking students to come up and show what they learned on an example.

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
I wish he could teach my other classes since I learned a lot from his video lectures.
he is very knowledgeable, and it was sort of easy to understand the concept of each chapter.
Excellent instructor. He is very knowledgeable, provides real examples, would recommend to others. I like the fact that the instructor is fast with email responses and updates grades consistently. Very experienced instructor.
Very good instructor. Will definitely recommend to others. He makes us laugh every single meeting, which breaks the monotony of a long class period.
Excellent.
Great teacher. Very organized, easy to understand, and responsive to questions.
Mr. Kamida is very knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches. I am confident that I am learning from the best.
Roy Kamida is a great teacher. He was able to explain tax rules and explain how to do a tax return.
He is an excellent teach, easy-going and is always ready to answer questions.
I thought that this was a very good class and that I learned a lot about taxes and what it is like if I decided to go into the tax part of accounting. I really liked his teaching style.
Professor Kamida is a really good professor!! I would gladly take his class again.
I think overall is this time is good.
great teacher and lecturer. Very knowledgeable and easy to understand and talk to.
Professor Kamida is very knowledgeable of the topic, which is clear in his lectures and examples. His class is very easy to follow.
Great professor and really great in answering questions.
Excellent
Professor Roy Kamida is a great teacher. He is very helpful and dependable. He constantly checks his emails and responds so quick. I really admire him for being kind and caring teacher. I wish all of the professors are the like him. Professor Roy Kamida performs an outstanding job. I have taken several accounting classes from him before.
Very knowledgable in tax.
Answers questions through announcements in Laulima so the entire class can see.
Very effective class
Great instructor. Very organized, knowledgeable and well-prepared. In addition to lectures, Professor Kamida provided students with extra resources such as videos to reinforce classroom lectures. He gave students ample opportunity to succeed with homework and exam reviews, email reminders of due dates and general overall accessibility. In my view, he sets the standard for effective college professors.
Helpful, knowledgeable, and approachable. Very good professor.
Mr. Kamida highly organized, tech savvy, and experienced as a teacher. He answers emails quickly and challenges students to seek out the answer themselves rather than letting us run to him every time we need to look up something. I appreciate his predictability (my 3rd class with him) and fairness.
Roy Kamida is very knowledgeable and efficient in the teaching of this course. I wish that he were more available to teach other courses. Or that more of the courses were taught by him via online.
Roy Kamida is a good professor. He knows a lot about taxation.
Excellent!!
he was great at connecting with the students and keeping us interested.
Mr. Kamida is a great instructor and allows students alternatives in order to understand material that may or may not relate to them personally or professionally

Good course.
This was a great course and I would recommend it to other students. I am actually interested in studying more about taxes because of this course.
This is a good course if the student wants to do tax planning and understand the concepts behind tax programs.
This was a good course overall. I'm glad I decided to take the class because it made me a little interested in taxes. Although having to remember all the changes is probably difficult at first, but I think over time I would be able to understand them.
I liked how this class was on Saturday mornings, and was taught by Professor Kamida. He is a really good professor, and he really knows his tax concepts.
My overall evaluation this course was great and got to learn lot about taxation.
A great class to understand the basics of federal taxation. I learned about topics that I could apply for my personal federal tax return, but also for tax planning purposes.
Tax course is really difficult to grasp but I learned a lot.
Excellent
Superior. Professor Roy Kamida explained very detail and gave examples so we could understand the materials.
good course to take if you are unfamiliar with basic tax laws.
Great way to learn how to calculate numbers on the tax form and figure out what's included and excluded in those numbers
Very informative
Good course for both personal and professional development. Recommend this course and instructor for all college students.
Very informative and surprisingly interesting.
must do for all thinking about entering the field. You get to really understand what it is about and begin to formulate what part of accounting in really for you.
Excellent and informative course. The amount of information is kind of overwhelming and may be sometimes little difficult to absorb from the text alone. Kamida is able to break elements down and simplify them for easier understanding or comprehension. Only wish that this course was available either online on at night.
This course is a good course. It goes in depth in taxation.
Excellent!!
this was the ideal class. i really enjoyed it.
AWESOME
A+++++....
Good learning experience
The course was good
Was very educational. Learned a lot about tax law and about how many things you might actually need to fill out a tax form.
Strongly recommended for those who are looking to branch into taxes but still very challenging.

Three hours on a Saturday morning is tough! Nice part is that we can apply what we learned in the upcoming tax season. Those taking it next semester will not fully benefit as the class will not be over until after the tax deadlines have passed.
Great Class!
Sitting in a three hour long lecture can be a little bit stiff, maybe add some group interactive activities.
An Internet course would be preferable to a Saturday Course.

As a once a week class, it was difficult to learn and retain the amount of information required to be learned. The book was a bit confusing as well.

N/a
Very compact. Its understandable because it is a summer course.
The pace was tough
I didn't like that the CONNECT changed their program somewhat throughout the summer course as far as the review question program before the homework. However I'm sure Professor Kamida didn't have any control over that.
The amount of work given every week.
Talking to others in a classroom environment.
Everything is laid out and quite clear from the beginning - teacher puts in effort to do so
The most difficult part were sometimes the exam was due at the same time as a homework assignment. Depending on internet activity this could be difficult. The other thing i did not like were learning objectives during the homework portion. Sometimes they did not work. It may have been an internet issue but 95% of the time it did not work when I attempted the HW.
I did not like how the assignments were due on all different days. I feel like the due dates for the homework should have been more consistent like every two days or every Monday and Thursdays of the week, or something to that extent. I think that way it would be easier to remember when things are due, instead of having to check online whether or not something is due.
The only thing I would like to see more of would be videos of specific examples. Besides that the course was well put together and very helpful.
He was very helpful and fast when it came to asking questions about the assignments
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
YouTube video lectures are awesome because it's a convenient way to learn. I watch those on my phone when I'm on the go.
That it was online. Very helpful to my schedule.
I liked that the professor posted the online lectures on youtube and he was very organized with the lectures, homework and test dates.
How easy the homework was. Professor constantly kept us up to date every day. I felt that he ensured our success in this course with the constant emails.
I could get ahead and finish early.
Everything was organized.
I liked the layout and points system. It made it easy to keep track of what you needed for the class.
Emails providing a heads up/reminders and what to expect on homework, exams, and projects were very helpful in staying on track and being prepared.
I liked how the professor would send us emails to let us know when our assignments and upcoming assignments were due. I liked how we were given three attempts to do the homework and projects and I feel that really helped me understand what I did wrong and how to correct the mistakes. I liked how the program for this online class for the homework would show you what you got wrong and then you could click to see the correct answer, which really helps when you attempt the homework again. I also liked how the lectures were posted on Youtube and that we were given more videos to help us understand the content better.
The professor was always available to help and there are many different ways to study.
I got to do it on my own time and it worked around my schedule.

This course is very organized and manageable. Kamida is clear about the lesson plans and actively sends supplementary material for the chapters. He understands students and does his best to remind them of what steps to take to succeed in this course.
Course was very good.
Course is great, the tests get progressively harder. Need to do more studying for each midterm.
Great course, learned a lot from Professor Kamida.
It's pretty hard without having a teacher to teach me and for me to ask questions as i'm trying to learn the subject throughout the time, but overall it is a good course, with the homework and how its designed and everything
The course was great. Even though I'm deployed and had some difficulties, it was easy to follow the course at times.
good because the work was reasonable, nothing too easy or too hard. The workload was manageable and the professor gave us enough time (in advance) to complete the assignments.
The course was well put together and extremely helpful.
it's a great class and i would reccommend it
19. Other comments:
N/a
N/A
Professor Kamida should do a video to prep students for each exam. I didn't like the exams because the exams covered topis that were in the appendices of a chapter. Because the questions were in the appendices, the homework assignments and learnsmart modules didn't have any questions that pertained to the appendix. As a result, a student could only read the appendix without any real practice.
It was great

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
This course was very informative and helpful towards my major. Mr. Kamida uploaded videos to enhance major components within each chapter.
not much really
First, this course has really opened my eyes to the different sides of accounting. I had never considered doing governmental accounting as a choice for my career, but it has really made me think twice about it. Taking this course has surely built my confidence in myself as future accountant. It has certainly tested my knowledge and grasping of accounting concepts that I've learned throughout my college life.
Learning about governmental accounting is way different from what learned in accounting.
I learned a lot about the difference between fund-basis and governmental-wide statements.
I chose this class as one of my concentration requirements and it has taught me the principles of governmental accounting.
Yes
This course has instilled new information that I could use at work as a bookkeeper for a non-for- profit.
I learned alot of new concepts about accounting. I have never learned about governmental and fund accounting before. It was an entirely new concept.
This course will help me in the future being that I am majoring in accounting and I might be working for a government or a non profit organization.
It helped me to understand how the government's accounting system is structured and how it differs from accounting in the private sector.
This was a good class. Although it was taken to fulfill concentration, it was not a requirement, so am glad I took it since I learned a lot.
It helped me understand the difference between the accounting for businesses and accounting for governments and not-for-profit organizations.
It taught me a different system for government accounting versus the economic accounting system I previously learned from other classes.
It was not a requirement however, as a future candidate for the CPA exam I felt this class would be beneficial. Having taken the class, I feel the same way as this is an entirely different type of accounting.
I personally enjoyed this course. I'm taking with another summer course and this has been very stressful. I would not recommend taking this course with another course in the summer if you also have a full-time job.
This course taught a lot about accounts in in government. I work for a local government and I thought I know a lot but I was wrong. I've always wanted to take this class to satisfy one of my accounting requirements.
Very good conceptual material
This course came at a perfect time for me since I planned to do my senior practicum at a nonprofit organization in the Fall. Although most of the course covered governmental accounting, I am now prepared to handle any fund accounting I may work with as well as utilize the brief material that covered nonprofit.
This Governmental Accounting class has given me a better understanding of how our government here in Hawaii account for all their business transactions.
This course allowed be to further expand and deepen my knowledge of accounting.
It helped a lot.
This course gave me a broader perspective of Accounting and how different guidelines apply to different groups, ie. Government, Non-Profits and Businesses may have different reporting requirements. This will help me to be better prepared and knowledgeable when applying for jobs in the accounting profession.

None. There are already videos, book solutions, and also, Mr. Kamida is available when needed.
a guild line as to what is on the test not just could be anything in each of the chapters
I found Professor Kamida's resources to be very useful and abundant. He provided the textbook website that had additional resources as well. I personally appreciated the video lectures that he provided for us, as well as the powerpoint presentations. He also provided notes and real-life exampls throughout the text. He as also readily available to answer any questions that we had, and took it a step further by sharing the answers to these questions in announcements to the entire class (which is great for those that were too afraid to ask).
Interaction exercises.
The course is great, the resources are sufficient.
I think if Mr. Kamida can assign some pratical questions or homework to us(for example, journal entries, and interest and principal calculations), that will be great because now, we only focused on the concepts.
The resources professor Kamida provided was helpful enough

I wish he took more time to explain instead of point out book page numbers. I asked cause I didnt understand the book.

No additions needed, really. This was a well-balanced course. the materials were great, not to much, not too little.
I felt the material for this course was great. The video lectures really helped me understand some of the more difficult topics for the course.

A little more help than just check you're sysbuls and reread the chapter
I admit that I was intimidated by the combination of the length of the summer class and the amount of material to be covered, but I feel that Professor Kamida really approached it in a great manner. Although teachers do not need to send reminders to students when to do their assignments, Professor Kamida never failed to offer an e-mail reminder. I think that he is a great teacher, and I really can't imagine how it might get any better.
Not really sure what can be improve.
Keep it the way it is. I wish all online classes were organized this way.
I like Mr. Kamida 's teaching style and methods. The lecture is very useful for me to understand textbook. Maybe he could assign couple pratical questions each chapter, so we can learn to use the knowledge to solve the problem.
None. Professor Kamida was clear, concise, and his teachings are very effective. Videos helped a lot!
N/A
I would have liked to learn more on non-profit accounting and little less on government accounting.
It's an online class, therefore it's different as most of the other intermediate accounting classes I took. Mr. Kamida is easy to talk with and likes to link local examples with the course material. Would recommend put in more journal entry questions instead of the concepts.
I appreciate Roy Kamida's organization and his engagement. We have pre-recorded videos however he stays engaged by constantly checking and answering emails.
no suggestions. the course and teaching style what was I expected.
I think the text should provide more examples in detail about topics covered.
Everything was good
None
Nothing to improve. Great system.
No improvements needed, in my opinion. Professor Kamida has a great teaching style, is easy to understand and his presentation made the material seem less intimidating than it could have been, considering it was a completely new type of accounting that I had not been previously exposed to.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Mr. Kamida is a very knowledgeable person. I would definitely take another course from him.
The way this was set up there really was no need for a teach could have just bought the book read it and take test by myself which is not really why I'm paying to go to school
He is a great teacher and makes the students feel like they are capable of doing the work, which in turn really helps the students get their work done. I admire that he is able to be so organized and still not make students feel overwhelmed. I especially liked that he had everything available from the beginning of the semester, in case any of the students wanted to be proactive and do things ahead of time, or if any students had some circumstances that required them to do homework ahead of time (i.e. a vacation, couldn't get off or work). Thank you Professor for understanding that students live complicated lives as well and giving them a chance to really pass this class.
Great teacher. Material is hard to learn in a short amount of time
he is a good professor that posted students questions and his online lectures were useful in understanding the material when the book was confusing.
The best online instructor. Very knowledgeable and organized. Responds to emails promptly.
Mr.Kamida is a great person. He has great passion on teaching and helping people. He not only motivate students to learn, but teach them how to learn in a manner that is relevant, meaningful, and memorable. He care for our craft. Also, he can convert passion to everyone, at least me. He is the most important professor in my life so far.
Great accounting teacher. Made this course easier to understand.
that he is very knowledgeable and helpful. He answers questions very quickly.
Professor Kamida had effective lectures and course material. I felt that he was overall a good teacher.
He was always available to answer questions or help in any way. I liked his teaching style and enjoyed his class very much.
I liked that this instructor was well prepared. Communication was good with his constant email reminders. I also liked the fact that he provided recorded lectures. I think that was extremely beneficial as accounting is not an easy subject to just "read" about.
He is a great teacher and cares about students.
That he is a lecturer that has perfected both respect & efficiency. He does enough to ensure that his students have every chance to understand the material but at the same time he gives students enough respect and room to independently decide how much they are going to learn. I appreciate that.
excellent and above average
Roy Kamida is not a hard teacher. He's really flexible and I'm glad he gives second chances on the exams and give extra credit.
Good teacher...very knowledgeable
Excellent
Professor Kamida is very knowledgeable according to his lectures. He gave great examples so we can better understand the material.
Roy Kamida is an awesome instructor

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
For a summer session course, the workload was very do-able if a person stayed on track.
could have just done this on my own and saved myself the money I paid the school
The reading and material itself was a bit challenging. There was a lot to take in, but it was very manageable in the time given. It truly reveals whether an accounting student is ready for the CPA exam or must go back and review what they've learned in other courses.
Difficult! Should not be taught in summer. Short amount of time little results.
The course was effective. I followed the professor's steps of reading the material, watching his lecture and taking the quizzes.
Not the easiest one but good, the videos are very helpful.
I like this course.
Interesting course. I learned a lot of information that I could apply at work.
that although the course textbook was long and it took a while to read, I've learned a lot from the other sources he had provided us which were the videos. This course was really informative and interesting and I learned a lot during the short 6 weeks.
Governmental accounting differs from accounting in the private sector. It took a little getting familiar to the differences. But it could be useful if I pursue a full time position in the government.
I really enjoyed the organization of the class and learning materials. The video lectures and power points were very helpful. I would recommend Professor Kamida to other students looking to take a class in Governmental Accounting.
Excellent course, excellent instructor ... needs to be offered more than just summer sessions.
It's a good course with a different accounting system. I learned fund system/modified accounting from it. The result of the class all depends on the time individual student put into learning how the system works.
Excellent course. A real good pace for a summer class.
excellent
This course provided a lot of information about Governmental Accounting that I've been wanting to learn as I work in a local government. There's so much information to absorb that I believe it would probably be better for it to be taken during a regular semester to get a better grasp on all of the topics covered. Other than that, I enjoyed the class although it brought a lot of challenges.
Good intro class
Excellent
I enjoyed this class and most of the topics that were covered. Overall I found this class very helpful and I'm sure I'll refer back to all my notes when studying for the CPA exam.
Great informative class. Thank you for a great summer session!
great for summer
Excellent teaching method.
Excellent online course.
I enjoyed the course although it was a little challenging. Some of the topics were hard to understand at times but having the chapter lecture available to re-watch was helpful.
21. Other comments:
Thank you for a challenging semester. I appreciate the additional knowledge and skills I've learned from this course. Please continue to do what you're doing, as it really helps students.

I would definitely recommend this instructor to others.
This should be offered as an in-person course.
no comments.
I would recommend this class to all to satisfy one of their accounting requirements.
None
It's good to make the exams available ahead of time during a very fast paced summer schedule.
The balance of material mixed with lectures and quizzes, as well as the steady pace that was manageable really made the course effective. I felt that I had the time to read the text and absorb the material, then complete the other assigned tasks. I really appreciated the clear straightforward recommendation on what order to complete the tasks in- (watch the lecture, read the text, take the quiz....) It seems so obvious, but often it is hard to find a routine when starting several new classes at once, or trying to balance school with other life priorities.

The amount of work at times was alot to handle bu it was understandable since it was in such a short period.
It was extremely intense and the work load was very demanding.
Connect was very easy to use and I learned a lot.
n/a
Not being able to communicate face to face, made learning some concepts harder.
Nothing
N/A
It was just difficult not being in class, but overall no complaints.
No study guide and no presentation videos from the instructor himself.
It is a little hard to take a difficult course such as accounting, entirely online (assignments, digital lectures, etc.) But this is expected with a summer 6 week intensive session. I think that a potential benefit to future students would be video lectures going more into detail about the lesson would be super helpful.
I thought this course was great, there wasn't much to dislike.
This is my first online course ever, so at first doing an assignment everyday was challenging. But after I got used to it, the course was very interesting!
that it moved super fast
No complaints
I do not like having to be forced to buy an online code for so much money when we are already paying a lot.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
the timely matter that assignments were inputted into the gradebook
The ease of online resources
Professor Kamida answered any questions within a few hours and he showed everyone their questions and answers. He's very accommodating.
flexible time
Professor Kamida was great at responding to emails promptly. He answered every question I had.
Connect Plus
Instructor help
I liked that the Syllabus was clear and stuck to the due dates. I loved how all the assignments were opened from the beginning so that I could work ahead when necessary. I actually enjoyed the interactive slides. They were easy to follow and helped me understand the material well.
Roy's class announcements in Laulima. They were helpful and concise.
The professor was VERY organized and updated up on every assignment, and test due. He was on time for grading which was very helpfull!!
Efficient and timely.
Roy Kamida is the most "on top of it" instructor I have EVER had. Not only does he respond extremely fast to questions that are emailed to him, but he also forwards every question that is emailed to him, to the rest of the class anonymously so that those of us who don't want to bother our professor all the times with little questions, can see the answers to questions he's already answered! I think that is totally cool of Roy, and I haven't had another instructor who takes the time to do that like he does.
The fast pace and complete immersion of the topic during summer school was a perfect rhythm for learning the topics.
I got to do work on my own time, I think I'll be taking a lot more online courses in the future.
that i could do it in my own time
I can attend class without having to travel to campus.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
good class for anyone to talk
I'm glad I took this class online.
Great!
Very good
Over all Accounting 202 was challenging, especially learning it online. But the material was managable and appropriate.
Considering it's an accelerated class, it is very hard. BUT, with the help/assistance of the instructor in a timely matter, helps a lot.
GOOD! One of my favorite online courses. I greatly appreciate the email reminders for when assignments were due. Very helpful!
I really liked this professor, it went smoothly and hopefully i end up with the grade i want.
Good, under the circumstance of being a summer online course.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Believe it or not, I enjoyed this online class more than ACC 201 with an in classroom instructor at KCC.
good
This course is great if you're trying to decide whether or not accounting is for you. Accounting 201 was more general and 202 was specific toward managerial accounting.
that its best to take it this way when you arent very flexible on your schedule
excellent

I would like to have check figures available for the project before the day the project is due. The projects are posted in advance to get an early start but I spend a lot of time questioning if I had done my work accuracy without checked figures.
I like everything about the class. At first I thought it was going to be a hard class but I learned a lot in this class. I am able to understand tax returns now. Professor Kamida is an excellent teacher and he is very knowledgeable about this course.

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
N/A
I learned a lot on this class. The course is very applicable to everyone who has taxable income. It encourages me more to pursue a tax preparation service after I graduate on my Associates degree.

I liked that there were videos on every chapter and he went through almost all problems and gave examples.
i liked the power points. very clear and to the point.. i also liked the fact that we were able to use the tax softward to put peoples returns together!
it was always updated
how easy it was to grasp the material and get help if it was needed.
I am taking this class on campus.
Able to do assignments ahead of time, convenience of learning at your own time.

I like the online resources and videos.

Good class. I learned a lot.
This is an interesting course to take if a student desires to prepare his own tax return. It very informative and Mr. Kamida makes it easy for students to understand since he is always available for any questions. I enjoyed Mr. Kamida's class because he is very knowledgeable and he supplied the students with online videos for a better presentation of the course. The videos were very helpful.

N/A
lose tracking of time and also having to go somewhere else to do an exam. I rather have it all in one place than have assignments in one and exams in another.
The Tax Act Software is not very user friendly.
Uploading PDFs the first time was a challenge because I didn't realize I had uploaded a blank pdf until after the due date. I also disliked being unable to work ahead in anticipation of life events. I have children and home and finding the time to take an exam on the weekend was challenging for me, however I wasn't unable to overcome this challenge so it wasn't too bad.
The thing I liked least about this class is the extra credit. Majority of the extra credit would apply to students in Oahu, but if you are on a different island you could not do the extra credit.
Nothing was wrong with the course, I just wasn't as organized as I should've been.
The thing I like the least about this online course is not being able to take the exams more than once.
Least liked: that it is online and there isn't a class. I like a class that lectures, discusses and shares question/answers live. Opted for online class option only for the convenience.
I didn't like that we weren't able to more assignments on how to prepare tax returns that was more realistic to the everyday life style. Though I'm sure what we are learning is towards the real world, just would of liked more assignments on filling out tax return forms.
None
It is harder since you are not able to get an answer right away, but Professor Roy does his best to respond in a timely manner.
01. The cost of the textbook is a ripoff in my opinion. 02. After this tax season, a large percentage of the information is already outdated because the tax law changes every year. 03. The textbook concepts can be kept for reference, but the tax tables, rates, and schedules need to be updated by referencing the IRS website or buying/renting a newer version of the accounting book. 04. The shelf-life of a tax accounting book is WAY shorter than a textbook from other classes such as economics, marketing, or liberal arts. 05. This textbook uses a 3-hole binder. My pages were starting to rip by the 3-holes towards the end of the semester. 06. I needed to buy and use those white-round reinforcements to attach to the 3-page holes. 07. Why can't the publisher print out a regular textbook with high quality binding? 08. Accounting textbooks in the past used hardcover/cardboard back and front with commercial glue/thread binding that lasted a long time. 09. Class did NOT have ALL textbook assignments posted in advance like some other courses, so students can advance ahead if they choose to do so.
What's needed for the course are all ready in Laulima. Plus the teacher are timely with announcements and responses.
Exams worth so much points and projects. It can bring down your grade if. You failed.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Professor Kamida was extremely responsive. Every time I had a question I received feed back within 10 minutes. I know that sounds crazy, but its true! I also enjoyed using the tax software, it made learning the concepts and filling out the tax forms a much easier tax and since most tax professionals use tax soft ware to prepare taxes, it only made sense to learn it through this course. Professor Kamida gave clear directions, and ample time to finish course work. Professor Kamida also provided "how to videos" which showed how to do the problems step by step, and that was also a very useful tool.
With Mr. Kamida, every question that a student asked, he posted it so others could see. This helps out a lot of students, especially those who are unsure of what to ask.
give ample amount of time to complete an assignment
The video's that Professor Kamida provided
With this course, Prof. Kamida was VERY timely in replying. I also appreciated him making the other student's questions readily available.
What I liked most about this online class is the instructors videos. His videos made it easier to understand the context being learned.
Kamida is always there to answer questions promptly and help in every way possible.
I liked the unlimited quizzes and problem practices; helps me understand more thoroughly of what I am learning.
Liked most: that it's convenient and homework was not overwhelming (once a week homework due on Fridays and then the usual midterms, projects, etc in addition. I also liked the 4hr exam duration given since Kamida seem to understand that students cannot possibly memorize all the tax rules so he allows that long to find the answers to questions....idea being that we've learned something by using that time to lookup answers.
What I liked the most about the online course was that it was very organized by our instructor. Mr. Kamida definitely knows his craft and he has been teaching this course and other courses at LCC online. I appreciate Mr. Kamida, because of his organizational skills and having to communicate very efficiently with his students showing how passionate he is about teaching and wanting us students learn and succeed through out his course.
Flexibility of learning online
I learned how to discipline myself and time management.
I liked that Professor Roy provided very helpful video lectures that gave the class a "face to face" feature.
01. I like the flexibility the most about this online course. 02. I like taking exams and quizzes online versus sitting in a classroom or having to go to a proctor location. 03. The online videos for each chapter were very helpful. 04. The answer key to the chapter exercises were very helpful. 05. The answer key and videos would be my best 2 features for this class.
Being able to get prompt reply from him if I have questions (;
The schedule was very organized and straightforward, and there were always announcements/reminders regarding assignments, tests, and projects and their due dates.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
My overall evaluation of this course is that it is an excellent course in tax preparation. The course is laid out in a very organized and understandable way. Expectations were very clear from the beginning. I recommend this course to any student wanting to learn about tax preparation.
Good.
good lessons and examples for me to follow when I needed help.
Outstanding class and I plan to take ACC137 in the fall.
I was already well versed in the material, and Prof. Kamida also was. There's always more to learn, even in the basics of taxes. I thought the course was educational, well organized and well done.
Overall I really enjoyed this class and learned a lot. I now understand the basic concepts to tax preparation.
Excellent. Kamida is a great teacher and I would recommend him to everyone.
Good instructor and well-organized (may just need to update materials such as power points or videos for proper year).
It was convenient. Resource materials are excellent (video/chapter handouts, etc, helpful and convenient links were included in class emails/messages. Kamida: highly recommended for he provides helpful resources, seems to be well-organized, knowledgeable, and is timely with responding to questions as well as returning grades.
Excellent. Mr. Kamida is one of the very few instructors from LCC that I had the pleasure to being one of his students. He is a great and passionate professor. I would strongly take the next course for accounting with him.
I would highly recommend taking this course with Roy online.
Overall this course is very knowledgeable about tax preparation, the rules, and other concept about tax in general.
very good class to take. However, you must stay on top of the work and use all resources that Professor Roy provides to help with the assignments.
01. If I had to give a 'grade' to this course, then I would give it a score somewhere between an A- and A+ so around 95% out of 100% 02. Providing extra credit assignments are a BIG help, so I wish there are more to offer students in future classes. 03. I am glad there are NO group projects, individual projects are MUCH better for the teacher to gauge the students abilities. 04. Request the teacher NEVER change the class by doing GROUP projects in the future. 05. It would be great if LCC can offer ACC-134 and ACC-137 every semester but I suppose it depends on the workload of each LCC staff member.
This course provides what students need to understand the course and pass. Any questions can be asked and teacher will answer them.
Great !
Very good.

I like that I don't have to buy a new book to move on to ACC137 (business tax).
I truly appreciate Professor Kamida having to be so detailed and being able to answer each and every question a student ask of him. He is able to make the online course experience really easy for communication.
01. Allow ALL business courses to be in an online format versus having to commute to LCC several times per week. 02. See if it is possible for the textbook to be of better quality with durable binding pages. 03. See if there are ways for the publisher to offer a lower price for the accounting textbooks. 04. Revise the class so that the weekly assignments are entirely posted on Laulima (with associated due dates) at the beginning of the semester, as some courses at LCC use this format and most students like it that way. 05. Have someone from a local CPA firm come to LCC and give a 45-60 minute presentation on what it is like to become a CPA in Hawaii and offer it as an extra credit activity!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
None.
It's taxes... the topic requires A LOT of reading and retaining of A LOT of information. It's hard to follow at times, but that cannot be helped nor changed. That's the government for you! lol
Having already taken a course from Mr. Kamida, and knowing what to expect I have no complaints.
nothing
Although online course may be good for some students, it wasn't as good for me. Taking an online course is more of a class where you have to teach yourself about the subject. You are only able to meet with the teachers when they are available and sometime their schedule don't work with students. Its best to have a class on campus and not only online especially when students don't like taking online courses.
The only thing i dislike about its an online class. I know i can take the in- class but I work full-time so I can only take online classes.
There wasn't really anything that I disliked about my course experience.
You are not really helpful in your approach to students who ask questions. You know ACCOUNTING, your students don't-please don't be condescending it defeats the purpose of keeping students engaged in the learning process. Provide examples of the returns that you want students to complete.
I like everything about this course so there is nothing i can say i did not like.
When you have a question with an on line course, you are forced to think about your problem and then figure out a way to write it in a question that makes sense. Sometimes this takes more time then asking a question when your are sitting in class.
Little interaction with other students, which makes the learning process easier.
N/A
What I did like least about my online course experience was somewhat hard to communicate.
Roy is always checking his email (and his spam inboxes, just in case) to ensure his students messages are received and their concerns addressed. He is always in constant communication with his students through the laulima portal which is refreshing since some of my other online instructors just post things up once through out the semester.
I like and enjoyed it much.
I worry a lot when I do not understand the topic, but with the help of Prof. Kamida, I learned a lot.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Mr. Kamida's video presentations.
What I love about online courses is the freedom to watch the lecture videos and read the textbook at my own leisure during the two weeks. Granted I sometimes put it off until the last minute but Mr. Kamida's videos are clear and very helpful so I don't have to review it too much before exams.
The subject matter is taught in a way that you are given ample time to absorb the material. In other classes so much material is packed into such a short period of time that it is hard to really get a good grasp on the subject. That is not the case with this course.
I liked that he provided real world examples in the lectures.
He knows his material and he's always available when needed.
I really appreciated having the lecture videos available on Laulima as that was very helpful for a visual learner like me. Being able to see a presentation on the chapter we were reading about really helped to understand and process the information.
Nothing
The way Professor Roy answer email back in this class is amazing. Professor Roy chow us it does care and like what he is doing.
It was great to have any question that was asked in class posted on line.
Able to adjust my course work based upon my work schedule, always being mindful of the due date(s).
What I did like most about my online course experience was simple to prioritize and anything is open book.
The course was well organized and the objectives of the class was very clear.
The convenience of my schedule.
I like the way he schedule future homework.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent!
I really enjoy Mr. Kamida's online classes. The schedule is clearly laid out and well organized. He explains the laws and calculations well in his lecture videos and the projects seem daunting but aren't all that bad in the end.
The teacher is excellent. The material is well covered. And I have learned a lot from this class.
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to do business taxes. It was a wonderful experience.
Positive, he is an very organized and effective instructor.
Two thumbs up. Very good job :)
This course was excellent. I wish all teacher i will have in the future will be just like professor Roy.
The course was interesting and I had to work to understand the material. I felt that I learned something that is useful now and will continue to be in years to come.
I really liked Mr. Kamida's method of teaching. He provides a lot of resources for you to refer back to.
What I like most about my online course experience is, Mr. Kamida gets back to me fast when I email him a question.
Good.
I wish I could learn all my ACC classes through Roy, he's simply the best!
This course is great! I learned a lot.
one of the most organized & supported online classes I have taken. I wish you were at KCC!
18. Other comments:
Thank you, Mr. Kamida.
Mr. Kamida is an awesome instructor who really knows his taxes and *usually* does everything he can to make sure students understand the material and what they had done wrong on their assignments. I don't like that his last project didn't give any answer range hints but he has to put the responsibility on the student some time! I must repeat, he is an awesome teacher and his FYI posts and alternate ways of solving problems are very helpful as well. Mahalo for another great semester!
I would take another online course from Mr. Kamida.
Great instructor!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Everything about this course was GREAT. No complaints at all.
The formatting of the projects made it hard to see previously entered info but that was the program design not the teachers fault.
I don't really care for the online website that we use for classwork, which is the McGraw Connect. At times, it takes too long to navigate.
None
The Connect website would sometimes cause me issues when doing work.
Nothing
The course itself was great, I just don't think learning accounting online was such a wise idea for me personally.
nothing it was great.
Some topics are more difficult to learn without instructions from the professor.
There really was no interaction, I rather be in class physically to learn accounting or any other class. It could be just for me, but I think I retain information better when I actually look at someone teaching it.
It was a lot of homework to do online and just reading the chapters and watching the videos was hard for me to comprehend when you don't have a teacher to immediately ask in class. Thanks Mr. Kamida!
none
Just keeping up with the assignments and exams before the due date.
I wasn't able to make sure that I was doing my homework correct until after I submitted it.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Taking this course online allows me to keep my job.
Timely.
I enjoyed that I could work at my own pace and even ahead if needed
The videos really helped to explain some difficult concepts.
The course information was hard but interesting and at times fun. I am also most appreciative to the course instructor whom emails in a timely matter and who is very understanding and caring and fair.
I was able to redo the Homeworks until I get a hundred percent.
The YouTube videos to help me learn the material and the excellent communication with Roy Kamida. He really knows his material and enjoys teaching his student. He is determined for his students to learn and succeed.
I liked all the videos Professor Roy provided for a better understanding of the material.
There were many video tutorials and slideshows that you could watch and re- watch at your convenience.
I really like the convenience of online classes and in this class you could work ahead of schedule if you needed to. It was great that Mr. Kamida's course had lecture videos that almost feel like you're in class, at times I miss that part of the traditional classes.
I can access my work and turn in my assignments according to my own schedule, within the deadlines.
I can sit in my own room and do my homework and tests.
I liked that the semester was set out in a timely manner.
Convenient because I am a single mom.
i could do my assignments and exams on my own time.
I liked the video lectures and how we had multiple chances to submit our homework!
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
A wonderful teacher that's makes accounting class interesting.
Good.
This course is great for an intro course and is very helpful with understanding accounting concepts
Great instruction of a sometimes tedious and difficult subject.
I recommend it to anyone who would take it online.
well organized and the professor is really helpful
This course is difficult, but accounting in general is tough. Roy Kamida will help you pull through and you will definitely learn a lot.
Great class!
Great online course with lots of resources and an instructor that responds in a timely manner and is available in person.
It's a great course to take with Mr. Kamida.
I think this online course is very well organized and easy to adjust to.
This class's homework are long including the tests, but at least he gives a sufficant amount of time to complete it.
Accounting is a difficult course to take online but I think Mr. Kamida does his best to communicate with his students and wants to help them.
very good, i learned a lot.
Its a great course to take, especially if you're a self directed learner.The work may seem challenging but he offers help and supplemental videos.
Awesome class! You can listen to the lecture at your own speed. If you have to pause the lecture, you can to take notes and replay it!
18. Other comments:
I highly recommend this course and teacher.
I would recommend this online course to other students!
Mr. Kamida provides a syllabus and course schedule upfront at the beginning of the course. This helped to clearly define the expectations of the student during the course. I would recommend Mr. Kamida to all students, but if you're unable to grasp the concepts of accounting on your own, I'd suggest taking the class on campus instead of online.
Roy Kamida is an awesome professor.
Maybe consider doing more hybrid classes.
Great semester!
Great professor! He replies quickly to emails and is great with explaining concepts!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
What I liked least was being timed on a test. Although I don't hold this against Mr. Kamida, but it's something that I myself always have a problem with since I don't like seeing the clock tick away. So in other words, there wasn't anything that I didn't like about Mr. Kamida. Overall, he is a great and thorough instructor and very understanding.
the time we had to complete the assignment
n/a
i did learn about the tax. it's helpful course for me.
There is nothing i like least about this class. I enjoyed every day of it. That is one of the reason i want take ACC 137
I am familiar on taking online classes as I have been taking on-line courses for the last 3 years. I work full-time so taking online classes works well for me. However, I miss being in the classroom. It also takes a lot more discipline to excel on taking on line class.
N/A
Mr. Kamida did a great job, I have no complaints.
no training for me as a beginner so I had to learn on my own how to take an online class
The text could sometimes be confusing and would require re-reading and some interpretation.
I have no complaints at this time.
There is A LOT of material to go over and not enough time. The textbooks consist of materials for two courses.
nothing
The textbook and the tax software that came with it.
The book did not have enough examples for different topics.
Nothing, this was an excellent class
It was well organized, and the workload was manageable.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I like how Mr. Kamida had video links and actual videos to watch and learn the objectives of each chapter. His communication was good too. I would take another online class from this instructor. I like how he sends us weekly reminders of what is coming up and what will be due.
it was very convenient
I like the resources that were available especially the video's which made ot easy for me to understand the content.
The materials were presented to us organized and clearly.
I have more time and easy to learn
This class was well organize. I do not know how Prof Roy did it but he always answer to email within 2 hours even if i emailed him around 9 PM. I can say the professor loves the subject and he always ready to help. In that case he makes me love the subject also because i did not plan to take the ACC137 but Prof Roy make me love the subject. That was the first class online i took that was well organize like that. I wish all teacher was like Prof Roy have a passion for what they are doing. He is a good example for me if i became a teacher.
The instructor was always available and willing to assist. More importantly, the course content and academic rigor was appropriate for the course level.
He is a great professor. He answers your questions right away. Being able to do your own taxes is amazing.
whenever I needed assistance Mr. Kamida was always quick at answering back
Mr. Kamida is AWESOME! He is very helpful and provides a lot of information. He also is very quick to respond to any questions that you may have.
The instructor responds really quickly to emails. With other instructors I am used to waiting a day or so for a response. Mr. Kamida responded within minutes! This is really helpful when taking an online course. It's almost as good as being in a classroom setting and getting your questions answered face to face. Thank you Mr. Kamida for being so dedicated and attentive!
I really enjoyed Professor Kamida's online lecture videos. They are very helpful and informative.
I liked the convenience of studying at home and working on my own pace.
My professor, Mr. Roy Kamida's expertise and dedication to his profession.
The teacher was prompt to reply and post announcements on important dates.
Roy Kamida is the best professor I have ever had on an online class. He makes detailed videos explaining everything very well, and responds to everyone's questions so fast!
I learned well with the video lecture and could watch parts over if I didn't catch it the first time.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
The course was easy to understand and the assignments were clear and organized. Workload was evenly paced and not overloaded.
very convenient
I would recommend this course to my friends and I enjoyed every bit of it.
As long as you manage your time, you will not have a problem with this online course.
great course. I can get more experience from this course
Good class. If someone take that class you will not regret it.If i have to rate over 5 i will give 5/5 for that class. The best teacher so far for me at Leeward.
This class provided me greater insight in preparing Federal Income Tax Return. I have learned the importance of tax deductions and tax credits. All the information I learned from this course really helps me with what I do at work. I am glad that I took this class.
It was manageable and very organized.
Its a great course to take.
I enjoyed this course
Helpful, informative, overall a good experience.
GREAT!
This is a great course and I highly recommend it.
Great! I really enjoyed everything and learned a lot about taxes. Mr Kamida's class is very well organized, the videos in each chapter are heplful for understanding the material. He replies to emails quickly and he's always available if we have any questions.
A+, because although I am not so pleased with the textbook, but given the fact that my professor, Mr. Roy Kamida was always accessible for questions and the like, I am thankful for the experience, the knowledge, and the skills he imparted me and the rest of my classmates.
Excellent. I cannot find a way to improve it.
This is a good course, and the second class I've taken from Mr. Kamida, he is a good teacher.

The Best teacher at Leeward.
I like the instructor and planning to take another course with him.
I would recommend this class and Mr. Kamida to anyone who wanted to learn about preparing personal income taxes.
I wish all online courses were organized like this one!
Thank you, Sir! And Happy Thanksgiving!--Sabiniana B. Baliba
I wish Mr. Kamida taught more classes. If I could, I would take all my classes with this professor.
