15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
Hope to have updated video lecture.
The course did not utilize connect as much as I thought it should.
Not having interactive lessons
Nothing. This is an ideal online class.
There was not really anything I did not like about my online course experience, Professor Kamida made online learning very easy.
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 a professor to remind you of certain due dates.
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.
Not all announcements are sent via email as well
Nothing really. This is the best on-line course I've taken out of 10.
Could feel more connected to classmates with forums or chat sessions.
work at your own pace and schedule is posted ahead of time
Laulima was down for maintenance in the hours that I needed it for homework.
None
The only thing i had trouble with was taking the exams.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
Teacher was very prompt replying to my questions via emails.
Having a flexible schedule
I liked that the assignments required a reasonable amount of time to complete, while also testing our knowledge of the current lesson.
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 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.
Being able to do work at my own pace.
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.
It allowed me to complete work when I wanted to with the consideration of my own personal schedule.
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.
The pace and videos.
it's online but when you ask questions, Mr. Kamida responds right away
I was able to complete assignments at my own pace which made it easier on my schedule.
Using the actual tax forms for hands on experience
It was easy to follow. Mr. Kamida always responded to questions.
The work load was a fair amount
communication with professor was very helpful
17. Other comments:
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.
Thanks
Great class! I learned what needed to be learned.
Professor Kamida is a very good online teacher, nad made the class as easy as possible to learn online.
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.
N/A
great course, and you learn a lot.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
N/A
No comment.
The exams.
Emailing questions to the professor took along time. Video lectures were not updated to current year.
As a "non-traditional" student (that means old fart), I miss the classroom experience.
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.
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.
I liked everything about my online course.
Sometime I did not have enough time to read textbook. But I have to study by myself during the online class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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
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.
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.
Projects and forms practice
Being able to review the lecture whenever I want.
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.
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.
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.
Everything.
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.
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.
17. Other comments:
Great course to take, and definitely understandable
Very good course, well suited for those who wants to major accounting and wants to be a tax preparer. Very helpful course and instructor.
I would recommend Professor Kamida to other Accounting Students.
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.
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
He deserves a raise!!!! He goes beyond what a normal teacher would do. Love the video lectures, it helped me a lot!!!!
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.
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.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
None.
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 textbook is a bit hard to follow. Theres a lot of words and not enough explanation for the examples.
I like everything an online course can offer.
n/a
i wish all the videos were updated.. but other than that it was great!
N/A
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!
N/A
What I liked least is probably the amount of reading required for classes on line.
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 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.
Nothing.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
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. . .
Easy to communicate with teacher
The work was a good amount not much of an overload on homework.
I like everything an online course can offer.
convenience
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.
N/A
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.
Mr. Kamida posted other students question on Laulima which helped me to finish my homework.
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.
I like the convenience of online courses. Roy posts everyone's questions, and his responses which is very helpful.
Prof. Kamida's timely responses.
Professor Kamida offered tips to help with the weekly homework assignments which helped in doing my best in the work.
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.
17. Other comments:
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 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!
n/a
i would definitely recommend Mr. Kamida to other students, he holds professionalism and definitely knows his subject!
N/A
Thanks for a great semester.
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
I had Mr. Kamida on both Tax courses. I enjoyed being in his class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing
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.
N/A.
I didn't really dislike anything about this course.
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
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.
It was all good
There wasnt anything I disliked, I enjoyed the course, Mr. Kamida is great! I wish he was teaching 202 next semester!
sometimes it would kick you out of the test before the time is up.
There's nothing that I really didn't like.
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.
Staring at the computer monitor for hours which hurts the eyes
It was a live class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I like how it gave the results fast.
I like how we were able to leave early if we finished our homework on Wednesdays. :)
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!
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.
I took the live class.
we had a review before every exam
I was able to complete assignments when it was convenient for me as long as it was completed by the due date.
Easy to keep track of, I can use my own pace
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!
you could do it a anytime.
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.
It was structured really well and it was fairly simple and easy to complete.
the ability to pace myself to complete assignments and not having to rush.
It was a live class.

Mr. Kamida knew his material very well, and I actually retained more with him, than I did with my last accounting.
You're an awesome professor. I'll most definitely recommend you to any other business major students.
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.
I encourage anyone who needs an accounting credit to take it with Professor Kamida! Great teacher!
Great teacher! He knows his subject and is willing to help.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
It was difficult at times to understand the material without face to face instruction, but Professor Kamida was willing to answer any questions.
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.
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.
I did not like that i did not know anyone in the class
No answers to homework problems available
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.
it was online.
It was easily manageable for an online course. I liked how the assignment deadlines were consistently set on Sundays.
Learning it on my own.
There was nothing I liked least about this course.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I appreciated the schedule that was given right at the beginning of the semester so it was easy for me to plan ahead.
This professor was very clear and concise about what we would be doing in his class and what the due dates were.
I would suggest chapter activities to make accounting enjoyable for us.
it was very organized
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.
The website Wiley has extra exercises to help understand the chapter
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.
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.
good with time
I enjoyed the freedom to do the assignments in advance.
Feeling free
I really like that this course was well organized and very flexible.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Provides more in depth of tax. You can see basic accounting principles are applied to some tax forms
This course was beneficial because it helped me understand and practice doing tax returns.
Excellent class for preparation for corporate tax class
As someone who is interested in tax preparation this course is very good.
Learning what to include and exclude on tax forms as well as filling them out.
Increased my tax accounting knowledge
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 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 has helped me learned more about taxation than I already know.
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 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.
I became more comfortable with filling out taxation firms.
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
The course provided an in depth explanation of the tax system and how to account for them for personal and flow through businesses.
This class gives me a opportunity to review and learn many knowledge that I had learned in the lower level tax class.
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.
Everything in the course was a learning experience.
It helped me to understand the different aspects of correctly doing taxes.
Help to better understand tax
Gained valuable skills and insight into the federal income tax system. This will aid tremendously in both my personal and professional development.
I learned a lot from the small details in doing tax and some complicated and intricate calculations.
I gained a basic understanding of tax compared to the little I knew from before.
I learned a lot of information that will help me prepare my taxes even better

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
This is a good course for student to understand the concepts behind individual taxation.
I wish that we would be able to practice on the tax program, so we can check errors immediately.
more short example problems would be helpful.
Maybe hands on tax forms filing "old way," might enhance learning
Having more class participation activities would be helpful.
Appreciated the way the instructor uploaded videos from his other accounting class as those were very helpful.
I feel like the website for this class was great, no other resources needed besides the book.
I don't feel any additions are necessary for this course.
None
No additional activities needed. The additional resources already provided by Professor Kamida are sufficient.
None. Professor Kamida explains concepts very thoroughly in class, and he also uploads videos if we need more help.
Lecture notes, study guide
None, everything was either available through the text, Laulima, or websites.
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.
none yet
Should do more tax returns. For a tax class, I expected to complete more tax returns instead of only 5.
Professor Kamida has added additional resources that help explain the course material.
N/A
More tax forms would help.
I liked that the course materials were all online. I found it helpful to use the study tools offered through my accounting lab.
The resources provided were effective as there was always material to practice, but the course wasn't overwhelming.
Course is good as it is
Did not care for the low-cost version of the textbook. Would have preferred the original bound version.
I honestly don't think that there's anymore activities that can be added on. Maybe some short problems in class would be nice.
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.

None
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?
Give us lecture notes and study guides.
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.
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.
no suggestions. like his teaching style and methods.
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.
The topics for this class are extensive, which makes it difficult to keep up with.
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.
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.
I liked when he went over homework problems so it was easier to understand when doing it at home.
I thought his teaching style was very effective.
Course is good as it is
Maybe not teach it on a Saturday. And have breaks in between lectures.
I would have preferred if we could have went through more examples in class related to the online homework for each chapter.
None
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
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.
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.
He is an excellent teach, easy-going and is always ready to answer questions.
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.
he is very knowledgeable, and it was sort of easy to understand the concept of each chapter.
Great professor and really great in answering questions.
Roy Kamida is a great teacher. He was able to explain tax rules and explain how to do a tax return.
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.
Great teacher and very knowledgeable.
Answers questions through announcements in Laulima so the entire class can see.

Roy Kamida is a good professor. He knows a lot about taxation.
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.
I think overall is this time is good.
Very effective class
A++++...
Professor Kamida is very knowledgeable of the topic, which is clear in his lectures and examples. His class is very easy to follow.
I wish he could teach my other classes since I learned a lot from his video lectures.
he was great at connecting with the students and keeping us interested.
He's overall a good and funny professor.
Mr. Kamida is very knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches. I am confident that I am learning from the best.
Great professor that knows his course material.
Helpful, knowledgeable, and approachable. Very good professor.
He is a great professor
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.
Excellent.
Very knowledgable in tax.
great teacher and lecturer. Very knowledgeable and easy to understand and talk to.
Very good instructor. Will definitely recommend to others. He makes us laugh every single meeting, which breaks the monotony of a long class period.
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

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
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.
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.
This is a good course if the student wants to do tax planning and understand the concepts behind tax programs.
Superior. Professor Roy Kamida explained very detail and gave examples so we could understand the materials.
Tax course is really difficult to grasp but I learned a lot.
Good course.
Strongly recommended for those who are looking to branch into taxes but still very challenging.
Great way to learn how to calculate numbers on the tax form and figure out what's included and excluded in those numbers
Excellent!!
Excellent
Good course.
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.
This course is a good course. It goes in depth in taxation.
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.
My overall evaluation this course was great and got to learn lot about taxation.
Very informative
A+++++....
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.
That is a useful and informative class.
this was the ideal class. i really enjoyed it.
Was very educational. Learned a lot about tax law and about how many things you might actually need to fill out a tax form.
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.
Good learning experience
Very informative and surprisingly interesting.
The course was good
Good course for both personal and professional development. Recommend this course and instructor for all college students.
Excellent
good course to take if you are unfamiliar with basic tax laws.
Excellent!
AWESOME

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.
An Internet course would be preferable to a Saturday Course.

Sitting in a three hour long lecture can be a little bit stiff, maybe add some group interactive activities.
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.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
N/a
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.
Talking to others in a classroom environment.
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.
He was very helpful and fast when it came to asking questions about the assignments
The pace was tough
Very compact. Its understandable because it is a summer course.
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 amount of work given every week.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
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.
The professor was always available to help and there are many different ways to study.
I could get ahead and finish early.
I liked that the professor posted the online lectures on youtube and he was very organized with the lectures, homework and test dates.
I got to do it on my own time and it worked around my schedule.
That it was online. Very helpful to my schedule.
I liked the layout and points system. It made it easy to keep track of what you needed for the class.
Everything was organized.
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.
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.

18. My overall evaluation of this course is...
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.
The course was well put together and extremely helpful.
Great course, learned a lot from Professor Kamida.
it's a great class and i would reccommend it
Course was very good.
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.
Course is great, the tests get progressively harder. Need to do more studying for each midterm.

It was great
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.

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?
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.
I chose this class as one of my concentration requirements and it has taught me the principles of governmental accounting.
It helped a lot.
This course was very informative and helpful towards my major. Mr. Kamida uploaded videos to enhance major components within each chapter.
It helped me understand the difference between the accounting for businesses and accounting for governments and not-for-profit organizations.
Learning about governmental accounting is way different from what learned in accounting.
not much really
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.
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.
I learned a lot about the difference between fund-basis and governmental-wide statements.
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.
This course has instilled new information that I could use at work as a bookkeeper for a non-for- profit.
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.
I learned alot of new concepts about accounting. I have never learned about governmental and fund accounting before. It was an entirely new concept.
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.
Yes
This Governmental Accounting class has given me a better understanding of how our government here in Hawaii account for all their business transactions.
Very good conceptual material
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.
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 to understand how the government's accounting system is structured and how it differs from accounting in the private sector.
This course allowed be to further expand and deepen my knowledge of accounting.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
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).
The course is great, the resources are sufficient.
Resources were readily available and in many forms so that we don't need to download anymore applications for the computer.
None. There are already videos, book solutions, and also, Mr. Kamida is available when needed.
Since this was an online course, I would have liked to have seen more examples and exercises for each chapter to help me get a better understanding of the process besides just understanding the concepts.
Interaction exercises.
a guild line as to what is on the test not just could be anything in each of the chapters
No additions needed, really. This was a well-balanced course. the materials were great, not to much, not too little.
None
more examples and problems.
The resources professor Kamida provided was helpful enough
None
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.
the videos are very helpful.
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.
Everything was good
I wish he took more time to explain instead of point out book page numbers. I asked cause I didnt understand the book.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
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.
Keep it the way it is. I wish all online classes were organized this way.
Nothing to improve. Great system.
None
Not really sure what can be improve.
A little more help than just check you're sysbuls and reread the chapter
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.
None
None. Professor Kamida was clear, concise, and his teachings are very effective. Videos helped a lot!
I think the text should provide more examples in detail about topics covered.
no suggestions. the course and teaching style what was I expected.
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.
Everything was good
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.
I would have liked to learn more on non-profit accounting and little less on government accounting.

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
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.
The best online instructor. Very knowledgeable and organized. Responds to emails promptly.
Well prepared.
Mr. Kamida is a very knowledgeable person. I would definitely take another course from him.
Great teacher. Material is hard to learn in a short amount of time
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
A+ -
Excellent
he is a good professor that posted students questions and his online lectures were useful in understanding the material when the book was confusing.
that he is very knowledgeable and helpful. He answers questions very quickly.
Great accounting teacher. Made this course easier to understand.
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.
I thought he was very knowledgeable of this area of study.
excellent and above average
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.
He was always available to answer questions or help in any way. I liked his teaching style and enjoyed his class very much.
Professor Kamida is very knowledgeable according to his lectures. He gave great examples so we can better understand the material.
Good teacher...very knowledgeable
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.
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.
Professor Kamida had effective lectures and course material. I felt that he was overall a good teacher.
Roy Kamida is an awesome instructor

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.
Not the easiest one but good, the videos are very helpful.
Excellent teaching method.
For a summer session course, the workload was very do-able if a person stayed on track.
Difficult! Should not be taught in summer. Short amount of time little results.
could have just done this on my own and saved myself the money I paid the school
Excellent online course.
Excellent
The course was effective. I followed the professor's steps of reading the material, watching his lecture and taking the quizzes.
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.
Interesting course. I learned a lot of information that I could apply at work.
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.
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.
excellent
I like this course.
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.
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.
Good intro class
great for summer
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 course, excellent instructor ... needs to be offered more than just summer sessions.
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.
Great informative class. Thank you for a great summer session!
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.
It's good to make the exams available ahead of time during a very fast paced summer schedule.
This should be offered as an in-person course.
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.
I would recommend this class to all to satisfy one of their accounting requirements.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
No complaints
that it moved super fast
Nothing
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.
It was extremely intense and the work load was very demanding.
The amount of work at times was alot to handle bu it was understandable since it was in such a short period.
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!
n/a
Not being able to communicate face to face, made learning some concepts harder.
I do not like having to be forced to buy an online code for so much money when we are already paying a lot.
N/A
No study guide and no presentation videos from the instructor himself.
It was just difficult not being in class, but overall no complaints.
Connect was very easy to use and I learned a lot.
I thought this course was great, there wasn't much to dislike.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Roy's class announcements in Laulima. They were helpful and concise.
I can attend class without having to travel to campus.
that i could do it in my own time
Instructor help
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 ease of online resources
the timely matter that assignments were inputted into the gradebook
I got to do work on my own time, I think I'll be taking a lot more online courses in the future.
flexible time
Professor Kamida was great at responding to emails promptly. He answered every question I had.
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.
Efficient and timely.
The professor was VERY organized and updated up on every assignment, and test due. He was on time for grading which was very helpfull!!
Professor Kamida answered any questions within a few hours and he showed everyone their questions and answers. He's very accommodating.
The fast pace and complete immersion of the topic during summer school was a perfect rhythm for learning the topics.
Connect Plus
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
excellent
that its best to take it this way when you arent very flexible on your schedule
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.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Believe it or not, I enjoyed this online class more than ACC 201 with an in classroom instructor at KCC.
I'm glad I took this class online.
good class for anyone to talk
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.
Very good
Over all Accounting 202 was challenging, especially learning it online. But the material was managable and appropriate.
GOOD! One of my favorite online courses. I greatly appreciate the email reminders for when assignments were due. Very helpful!
Good, under the circumstance of being a summer online course.
I really liked this professor, it went smoothly and hopefully i end up with the grade i want.
Great!
good

I am taking this class on campus.
how easy it was to grasp the material and get help if it was needed.
it was always updated
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. The material on this course is very helpful and easy to understand. Mr. Kamida is a great teacher because he is very knowledgeable. Mr. Kamida also respond to questions on a timely manner.
I liked that there were videos on every chapter and he went through almost all problems and gave examples.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing was wrong with the course, I just wasn't as organized as I should've been.
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.
Exams worth so much points and projects. It can bring down your grade if. You failed.
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.
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.
N/A
What's needed for the course are all ready in Laulima. Plus the teacher are timely with announcements and responses.
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.
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.
The Tax Act Software is not very user friendly.
The thing I like the least about this online course is not being able to take the exams more than once.
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
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Kamida is always there to answer questions promptly and help in every way possible.
Flexibility of learning online
With this course, Prof. Kamida was VERY timely in replying. I also appreciated him making the other student's questions readily available.
Being able to get prompt reply from him if I have questions (;
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.
give ample amount of time to complete an assignment
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.
The schedule was very organized and straightforward, and there were always announcements/reminders regarding assignments, tests, and projects and their due dates.
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 most about this online class is the instructors videos. His videos made it easier to understand the context being learned.
The video's that Professor Kamida provided
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.
I liked the unlimited quizzes and problem practices; helps me understand more thoroughly of what I am learning.
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.
I learned how to discipline myself and time management.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent. Kamida is a great teacher and I would recommend him to everyone.
I would highly recommend taking this course with Roy online.
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.
Great !
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.
good lessons and examples for me to follow when I needed help.
Good.
Very good.
This course provides what students need to understand the course and pass. Any questions can be asked and teacher will answer them.
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.
Overall I really enjoyed this class and learned a lot. I now understand the basic concepts to tax preparation.
Outstanding class and I plan to take ACC137 in the fall.
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 instructor and well-organized (may just need to update materials such as power points or videos for proper year).
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.
Overall this course is very knowledgeable about tax preparation, the rules, and other concept about tax in general.
18. Other comments:
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!
N/A
I like that I don't have to buy a new book to move on to ACC137 (business tax).
No other comment.
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.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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 everything about this course so there is nothing i can say i did not like.
What I did like least about my online course experience was somewhat hard to communicate.
Having already taken a course from Mr. Kamida, and knowing what to expect I have no complaints.

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
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.
There wasn't really anything that I disliked about my course experience.
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.
Little interaction with other students, which makes the learning process easier.
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.
N/A
nothing
I worry a lot when I do not understand the topic, but with the help of Prof. Kamida, I learned a lot.
I like and enjoyed it much.
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.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The course was well organized and the objectives of the class was very clear.
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.
What I did like most about my online course experience was simple to prioritize and anything is open book.
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.
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.
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.
He knows his material and he's always available when needed.
I liked that he provided real world examples in the lectures.
Able to adjust my course work based upon my work schedule, always being mindful of the due date(s).
It was great to have any question that was asked in class posted on line.
I like the way he schedule future homework.
The convenience of my schedule.
Nothing
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I wish I could learn all my ACC classes through Roy, he's simply the best!
one of the most organized & supported online classes I have taken. I wish you were at KCC!
This course was excellent. I wish all teacher i will have in the future will be just like professor Roy.
Good.
The teacher is excellent. The material is well covered. And I have learned a lot from this class.
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.
Two thumbs up. Very good job :)
Positive, he is an very organized and effective instructor.
I really liked Mr. Kamida's method of teaching. He provides a lot of resources for you to refer back to.
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.
What I like most about my online course experience is, Mr. Kamida gets back to me fast when I email him a question.
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to do business taxes. It was a wonderful experience.
This course is great! I learned a lot.
18. Other comments:
None
I would take another online course from Mr. Kamida.
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!
Great instructor!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
none
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.
Some topics are more difficult to learn without instructions from the professor.
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!
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.
The formatting of the projects made it hard to see previously entered info but that was the program design not the teachers fault.
Nothing
Everything about this course was GREAT. No complaints at all.
The course itself was great, I just don't think learning accounting online was such a wise idea for me personally.
The Connect website would sometimes cause me issues when doing work.
None
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.
nothing it was great.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Convenient because I am a single mom.
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 can access my work and turn in my assignments according to my own schedule, within the deadlines.
I liked that the semester was set out in a timely manner.
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!
Timely.
The videos really helped to explain some difficult concepts.
I liked all the videos Professor Roy provided for a better understanding of the material.
Taking this course online allows me to keep my job.
There were many video tutorials and slideshows that you could watch and re- watch at your convenience.
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 was able to redo the Homeworks until I get a hundred percent.
I enjoyed that I could work at my own pace and even ahead if needed
I can sit in my own room and do my homework and tests.
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.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
very good, i learned a lot.
I recommend it to anyone who would take it online.
I think this online course is very well organized and easy to adjust to.
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.
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!
Good.
Great instruction of a sometimes tedious and difficult subject.
Great class!
A wonderful teacher that's makes accounting class interesting.
Great online course with lots of resources and an instructor that responds in a timely manner and is available in person.
This course is difficult, but accounting in general is tough. Roy Kamida will help you pull through and you will definitely learn a lot.
well organized and the professor is really helpful
This course is great for an intro course and is very helpful with understanding accounting concepts
This class's homework are long including the tests, but at least he gives a sufficant amount of time to complete it.
It's a great course to take with Mr. Kamida.
18. Other comments:
Roy Kamida is an awesome professor.
Great semester!
Great professor! He replies quickly to emails and is great with explaining concepts!
I highly recommend this course and teacher.
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.
I would recommend this online course to other students!
Maybe consider doing more hybrid classes.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
N/A
nothing
The textbook and the tax software that came with it.
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
The text could sometimes be confusing and would require re-reading and some interpretation.
There is A LOT of material to go over and not enough time. The textbooks consist of materials for two courses.
Nothing, this was an excellent class
It was well organized, and the workload was manageable.
the time we had to complete the assignment
i did learn about the tax. it's helpful course for me.
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 book did not have enough examples for different topics.
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.
Mr. Kamida did a great job, I have no complaints.
n/a
I have no complaints at this time.
no training for me as a beginner so I had to learn on my own how to take an online class
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The instructor was always available and willing to assist. More importantly, the course content and academic rigor was appropriate for the course level.
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.
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.
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.
I really enjoyed Professor Kamida's online lecture videos. They are very helpful and informative.
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.
it was very convenient
I have more time and easy to learn
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.
The teacher was prompt to reply and post announcements on important dates.
He is a great professor. He answers your questions right away. Being able to do your own taxes is amazing.
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.
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!
whenever I needed assistance Mr. Kamida was always quick at answering back
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was manageable and very organized.
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.
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.
Helpful, informative, overall a good experience.
This is a great course and I highly recommend it.
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.
very convenient
great course. I can get more experience from this course
The course was easy to understand and the assignments were clear and organized. Workload was evenly paced and not overloaded.
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.
Its a great course to take.
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!
I enjoyed this course
18. Other comments:
I like the instructor and planning to take another course with him.

Thank you, Sir! And Happy Thanksgiving!--Sabiniana B. Baliba

I would recommend this class and Mr. Kamida to anyone who wanted to learn about preparing personal income taxes.
I wish Mr. Kamida taught more classes. If I could, I would take all my classes with this professor.
thank you for your knowledge and time
Mr. Kamida is overall a great instructor. I would take another online class from him.

assignment due date on friday. i would prefer a sunday.

I thought the course was very well organized and could not find anything that I liked least. I am grateful that I can fulfill my degree distanced considering I live off island.
I can't get help from him face to face.
nothing
N/A
Enjoyed to class.
I was nervous about learning about taxes but this class has been great!
Reading all the material
I didn't like how we don't get to see what our mistakes were on our projects and some questions on the exams have errors.
How long the chapters in the book are
I prefer assignments to be due on the weekends. I am a non-traditional student, so I work during the week, plus have family obligations. One of the reasons I take courses online is because it gives me the ability to get tot he material when I have time which is typically during the weekend. If I do it during the week then I am sacrificing time I could be spending with my family to do homework after my regular job. But all in all I like taking courses online.
The homework I wished there was kind of samples to look at so we can at least check to see if we are doing the form correctly. I am very visual and with online class I wished there were some sort of way the professor could have shown us a visual of filling out the form and some sort of explanation how to solve each problem especially when doing the forms. For someone who is very new to filling out the forms its very tough.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
What I liked most about my online experience was I had to discipline myself more with my homework and exams.
The preparation problems to prepare for the projects and exams.
It was easy to understand because it was organized.
nothing
Professor Kamida had so many helpful tools and was available for questions. He provided us with many opportunities to learn and express our skills on paper or in homework. The lectures were so valuable, helpful and crucial to learning the difficult material.
Instructor responded quickly to questions.
I found the video's for each chapter extremely helpful!
Flexibility
The video lectures helped me understand the context of the chapters much better.
Gives enough time to do homework.
How helpful mr. Kamida is and sppedy responses to emails
I thought the instructor was good.
I liked that we got to actually filled out tax forms and learn how to do them.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
kamida goes over and beyond in providing resource information.
Mr. Kamida is very helpful. He would post up all the Q & A's that really helped me alot. I will be taking his Acc 137 next semester.
Awesome! Professor Kamida is very informative and tells you exactly what is expected of you as a student.
I'd take Roy Kamida again for ACC 137.
aceptable
Very well taught. Excellent lectures and examples. Testing and quizzes along the way to find the level of understanding of the material. Professor easily accessible and quick to respond to questions.
The professor made this course outstanding. He explains thing in away that I understood. The assignments that he gave helped to completely understand what you are doing.. it wasn't just busy work the assignments were extremely helpful!
This online course is very convenient for me. The course material is very helpful as well.
I really don't mind online learning because this accommodates me so much, especially because I have a busy schedule; however, I feel that nothing beats being live in a class and have a more personalized interaction with the instructor and other students.
It was an aweaome class
It is a good course, taught by a knowledgeable instructor. If one applies themselves they will learn plenty and do well in this course.
Online class you're basically on your own. I would say about 7 out of 10. Class is very precise and weekly homework's are given ahead of time so that's what i like about the class. Grades are also given to you right away so you know where you are at.
18. Other comments:

I enjoyed this class. Some things are a lot clearer now.
I recommend this online course ACC134 with Mr. Kamida because he provided alot of detailed instructions, video lectures, class information like the FYI(s), etc.
Happy Holidays!
I am the type of person I need to know what I did wrong. With this class it was very hard because at the end of the homework the professor gives you the numbers and what you got wrong.

N/A
Everything was good.
Maybe, I should have taken it by itself.
I liked this course & instructor!
I can't think of any. I am quite satisfied with it.
It is a little hard to study the subject because some answers on the end-of - chapter questions of the book do not reflect the correct answers which confuses students.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The course used several concepts from ACC 134, which made learning easier to understand in regards to the new material.
I liked how Professor Kamida was very helpful. He always responded fast. I would email him and with in 30 minutes he would respond.
This course helps me gain understanding and knowledge in the course concepts.
Very good - great for working parents.
Interesting subject. Plenty of resources.
Teacher responded fast through email.
The work that was required to be done was relevant to the course.
The class is very organized
time flexible.
The course information was very informative. I also liked that it was online and I could study and take exams on my schedule.
We were able to move at our own pace and extra credit are given. When assignments were returned, they came back with comments to what was wrong. Assignments were graded fairly.
The weekly assignments and projects really helped me learn the material.
Filling out form.
Mr. Kamida is very structured and organized. I felt he made this subject easy to understand. I liked the way he assigns his assignments and tests.
Everything I learned about taxes and more.
The instructor responds to emails very promptly. He shares articles that help us to understand the subject better.There were also a lot of resources provided by the instructor.The instructor shows concern for the students by constantly reminding us about the assignments, projects, and how to study the subject in an effective way.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent course in continuing what was learned in the previous Accounting class.
It's good, yet it gets harder if priorities aren't set.
Excellent
great course
Very hard but Great teacher.
Mr. Kamida teaches this class very well and thoroughly understands his subject, which makes it easier to learn. He is very clear and relates things to more common ways of understanding.
Excellent!

It is excellent.
Great course, would recommend it to other students.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
It was boring so hard to get interested.
Having to do all the accounting homework online sometimes got annoying because when there were technical difficulties and no previous notice it would delete all your work or get in the way of completing assignments.
He would end class 15minutes early....as I am paying him to teach us for the whole 1hr and 15minutes...and it is hard to understand what he writes on the board. The exams are hard because its problems not from the homework..
nothing.
Of course it's the amount of formulas that you have to memorize. But hey it comes with the course.
it was interesting and difference from book work
A thing I liked least was how challenging this course was with no accounting background. I believe that if I took the break down path of Acc 201, I would have a better, stable understanding of the concepts. Keeping up each week and on to a new concept was quite challenging.
that we could compete the assignments at my own time
I enjoyed this course. All the assignment dates were fair. There's nothing that I didn't like about this course.
I didn't like that there's not enough online tools for people who learn best with "hands-on" learning, but have no time to actually sit in a live class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Everything was easy to manage and control.
If I didn't know how to do the problem there were hints on a lot of the problems to lead me step by step which was really helpful when I wasn't in the classroom to learn face to face.
Love the way, tests and homework are due each week. AND, we have 1 week to study til the exam on sunday. In addition, the tests aren't timed which won't stress me out and give me enough time to think about each question.
lots of help available. the class schedule; Tuesdays lecture & Thursdays help.
that you were able to do the assignment at least three times to try and get a 100. this allowed the student to see what he/she got wrong and to try and figure out how to fix that answer.
the immediate grading
This online course allowed me to work at my own pace. I like how each chapter was distributed in 2 parts: LearnSmart and homework. I think it made it seem a bit easier than reading the book. In addition, the book was useful with its sample transactions.
n/a
I liked that the assignments were due on the weekend instead of having to turn it in in class.
My favorite thing about the online courses was that the assignments for the full semester is available from the first day. This gave me time to advance if need be, & to study future chapters accordingly.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was a good experience and very knowledgeable.
I really enjoyed this course overall and learned quite a bit. I think the workload or point value was a bit much and sometimes it got overwhelming, but I did find it engaging and I can apply myself.
=)
Excellent.
it's a lot of work load but all you have to do is read the chapter and highlight the important parts and memorize the formulas and READ carefully what the question is asking for.
excellent
a lot to learn and not very interesting, but the homework assignments online are helpful
I learned that financial accounting is not easy. It takes a lot of practice and commitment to understand each concept to the fullest takes time and patience.
excellent
Excellent.
I'd rate it a 10 out of 10.
18. Other comments:
Mr. Kamida obviously is well knowledgable about the subject that he teaches and he's always willing to help. I definitely appreciated the time he gave us in our class to do homework so he could actually help us in-person which in my opinion is always effective.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
It had to deal with more of the "Connect" website. Scheduled maintanence interfered with one of the quizzes, and while doing the HW, after clicking "save & exit", it would go to a page that said, "not logged in". HW got saved but it makes you worry sometimes. It was easy to get certain accounting equations mixed up with the other ones which effected me during Exams especially since you only had one chance to do the exam.
N/A
If you cant pick things up quickly for your class then it is hard to do well with an online class.
Sometimes there was a lot of work that piled up on top of each other.
Harder to learn because it is self paced & requires self responsibility.
I love online courses. There's little to dislike. If there was anything that bothered me, it was the hours Laulima is down. Because of my work schedule, I do a lot of studying during the night. Connect doesn't expect some Journal and Ledger entries in the same order taught by the Professor... For instance, when recording sales or purchase discounts, Connect wants the adjustments listed before the cash. It might be good to review that in light of the video lectures--which are great, by the way! Test questions are sometimes about things barely touched in homework, etc. My one regret is not being able to participate in the business club, since I am rarely on campus.
It was difficult at times to learn without and actually meeting in person.
Not being able to talk to my teacher in person.
Some things are completely out of your control. Unlike the normal class experience, where everything is under your control and choice (such as attending class), sometimes your router breaks, the site goes under maintenance, etc.
I didn't like that some of the main concepts weren't explained in detail in his videos, which were important for our exams. But most of the time i understood everything, from reading the book as well.
N/A
The textbook and the professor's videos did not cover some of the exam's content thoroughly. On a 50-question exam, sometimes there were about 2-3 questions about a topic that I felt was not covered enough. (Example: employee bonus)
The amount of reading...lol
The online program we had to use and do our homework on.
The homework and learnsmart alone take so much longer then all my other coursework combined.
N/A
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Convenient for me. (but next time i'd rather take an accounting course in class to further understand it)
It was very easy to understand and follow along.
I was able to take this class around my work schedule.
It allows me to do the work on my time.
It had clear due dates and was not confusing like some other classes.
I enjoyed that we were able to keep trying to get full credit on our homework. It really helped me understand because I was able to repeat things I got wrong.
I loved that he posted online lecture videos!!!
I love being able to study at my own pace and from my own home. I love people, but I'd rather spend my learning time learning rather than driving to and from class. Connect is a good tool. The homework is particularly well done.
It was very good for my schedule.
Learn smart and Connect!
For an online class assignments were clear, concise, and easy to access. Enough time to accomplish exam, homework and study material.
The chance to complete assignments at will.
I liked that he gave us a lot of time in advance to finish our assignments and that we could do things at our own pace.
N/Z
I liked the flexibility the online course provides. The due dates were all listed, so I could plan my schedule accordingly.
The support
Everything was schedule way before the semester started which gave me a heads up on oncoming due dates.
The teacher was very lenient and understanding. He showed concerns to his students by keeping his email open and responds to emails quickly when needed. He knows his subject very well and it helps reassure students that they have a teacher who can explain the subject to them in a way they can understand.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Syllabus and schedule explained everything, and resources were available. Great organization from the teacher.
It was the best online course that I have taken.
Great class.
It is very challenging but it isnt overly hard.
I would recommend it to others.
I really enjoyed this course and Mr. Kamida made this online class easier than I thought with all his powerpoints and fast responses, it was like I was actually in class.
Great
This is a good introductory Accounting Class. Well-presented and organized. Mr. Kamida is an excellent instructor. He is prompt to answer questions and really cares about his students.
EXCELLENT COURSE!
Great teacher, available when needed.
Great teacher, easy-to-follow expectations
very good
Good
This was an excellent course, and I found the content practical for my present job.
Excellent
It's really self paced, but you also need to keep up with scheduled work. I would have to really READ and understand each concept every chapter threw at me.
This course was a very challenging course at first, but with the help from the teacher and other resources he provided me with my study helped me understand the materials better.

N/A
Thank you Mr. Kamida for your hard work and dedication to helping us out in the best ways you can :)
I appreciated the extra credit activities. The workshops were interesting and helpful.
thank you for making this online course a good one!!
It would be helpful if the students are notified in the beginning of the course that the exams can take a very long time to complete.
This could probably be the best, but hardest online course I took in the UH system.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
easy class(:
The assignments were clustered together.
The tests. The exams took me roughly 4 hours a piece and I didn't do well on any of them. It is almost impossible to get a straightforward question from them and even ones where I found the exact sentence in the book that it matched I got wrong. The homework and learnsmart is tedious but not overbearing. The way the class is setup you can get stuff done ahead of time if you want. My biggest complaint with the class is that it doesn't feel like a beginners accounting class. That's not so much a fault of the teacher as it is the book used and the way connect was set up. I had an actual accounting major look at some of the work I'm doing and say it was pretty difficult for him. The whole experience of the class was tense and aggravating when it came to the tests and annoying when it came to homework and projects.
Roy Kamida is a great teacher! The only thing about this course which wasn't his fault was that it was a lot of work in such a little time. I took his class for Summer and it had to be cramped in such a small amount of time that I feel that I was swamped with work and it was a lot of things to cover. Im a mother of three so between house chores, family, and school I was so stressed with time. Staying up late doing work and just feeling tired because of the work overload. But I know by taking a summer class that is how it was to be to get all the information in six weeks. I felt like the only thing I could do was work other than on wednesday, that was the only day I did errands other than that my head was in my books! But other than that it was a great class and I would recommend mr. Kamida to everyone. I wish he taught Acct 202 in the fall I would totally take his class!
I was not satisfied with my first assignment score, and was unaware of the fact that I could do the assignment again to try for a higher grade. I had wished I knew this from the beginning.
N/A
It took me a long time to solve problems or answer questions I did not understand.
It just felt like there was constantly something to do but it's somewhat understandable because it's a summer course.
The dates on the Connect website were off by a day; although I knew when assignments, projects, and exams were due, it would be best if they were correct.
The projects, which took much longer to do than a regular homework assignment, was due the same time as other assignments. I'd rather have the projects due on its own date so I can finish it in a timely matter without having to worry about the other assignments as well.
The fast pace but that is a reality for every online summer course
n/a
Some of the questions on exams were not listed throughout the book
flexibility ,In this way, you can be flexible in understanding the binding requirements.
Not so simple to ask for help because the questions aren't visible to the instructor. I have to explain but I don't really understand the question
Doing a subject like accounting online is hard. It would have been nice if there was calss for the second summer session not online. But overall this class was doable.
Staring at a screen.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
very nice
I could do all my assignments at my own speed.
Teacher was quick and friendly when answering emails. Lots of content to help was provided. Also very straight forward.
The fact that it is online. I'm pretty busy and probably wouldn't have time to actually go to a classroom even though it probably would of been helpful. The ability to do things on my own time is the only real positive for me. If the class had been online but stretched out to a normal semesters length, maybe it would have been easier to manage.
Roy Kamida is a great teacher! He emails you back in a very quick response. I was so shocked on how fast he can get back to you, he is the first teacher I had that responded so quickly. I thought this class was very interesting and I learned a lot to help me in the future!
Taking this course online provided me with the opportunity to complete assignments on my own time, while providing me enough to to still get out and enjoy a summer! Thank you for a great course!
Very organized which makes it easier to keep up with assignments.
I could do my homework and exams whenever I wanted to.
The way the assignments are set up with powerpoints helped me to learn and confirm I understood the material.
You are free to get ahead, go at your own pace if faster but kept at a basis with due dates.
Lots of interactivity. Great feedback on my mistakes.
The structure and GREAT instructor
There was enough time between assignments, the class was very well structured and I knew what I was getting into from the beginning. Instructor was extremely helpful.
Mr. Kamida was always available
save time , and study by yourself you can learn a lot knowledge from website source .
I like online
I really appreciated how clear the grading system was, and how prompt the grading and the professor's responses to my emails were.
Professor Kamida provided educational and explanatory videos that further benefited my understanding of the subject. I am able to review lecture videos as much as I please versus only hearing a lecture once and then it's gone. In the conventional class lecture if you miss anything, too bad.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
very nice(:
This was an overall good online class.
This course was pretty difficult I think because of the shorter timespan. To try and explain the very broad range of accounting principles in little over a month is very difficult if you haven't had any other training. As far as the teacher goes, I can't blame him for the difficulty or amount of work because that just comes with summer class territory. He is clearly very knowledgable on the subject and can explain it. I think it is inevitable for a class like this though that some will pick it up fairly quickly while others will struggle, and when assignments are do every couple days, it leaves little room to learn a topic properly before you need to move on. The class overall was weird because the homework and learnsmart almost gives you a false sense of understanding until you get to the exams and projects which overload you with the material I feel is designed to trick you on every single question.
I would recommend this class to who ever needs to take accounting 201 but if you still would like to have somewhat of a summer I wouldn't suggest taking it during the summer session since there is a lot of work.
I would recommend this course and professor to my friends because it was helpful, convenient, and affordable.
A very well designed course.
It was okay, although hard at times, but overall manageable.
Accounting is kind of difficult but the class was manageable.
Great experience for a summer school business requirement course!
I thought it was very well done.
Highly recommend to anyone
learned a lot during this course, instructor was very helpful and informative. Seems like he goes the extra step to get his job done, and the content into the brains of his students.
good
good , and keep moving
Great
I thought that this course was overall excellent. Didn't have too hard of time, and knew exactly what needed to be done and how to do it.
Absolutely perfect. I have not one bad thing to say about this course with this specific Professor. I detested the thought of accounting which I once studied before under another professor. Now, I feel at ease knowing that I better understand and gained interest in the subject of accounting, thanks to Professor Kamida!
18. Other comments:
i would reccommand my friends to take your online class!!
:)
The exams annoyed me more then anything else because they showed a startling lack of consistency. One exam will have all paragraph length word problem type questions that take multiple minutes to figure out while another is half filled with single sentence questions about calculating insurance expense. Spending 4 to 5 hours on an exam only to not do so well leaves a bad taste in your mouth about the class and accounting in general. I'm not an accounting major, but if this was the first class I was taking towards that degree, I would probably seriously consider changing majors. Again, this isn't the fault of the teacher or even connect to a degree, the class just doesn't seem set up for beginners as most questions are trying to trick you even though you may only have a shaky knowledge of the topic at best.
I would recommend Professor Kamida to other students.
None.

Layout and format of this course is great!
Thank you.
Thank you for you're teachings!
Thanks
The entertaining videos made for accounting but from a more amusing approach helped to maintain my interest and provided a sense of ease into such intense information.

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 broadened my knowledge in accounting to include governmental accounting methods.
I have just started working for a non-profit in the fiscal office and everything applies directly to my job duties.
Added me in my quest to gain more knowledge in governmental accounting.
As a accounting major, this course increased my knowledge about governmental accounting.
Learned how government accounting works.
Learned more about fund accounting for governments.
this course helped me see just how different governmental accounting is from regular accounting. they use different accounts in different ways. also their financial statements consist of different reports. you have to be in a different frame of mind when your doing governmental accounting.
It provided me a better understanding of governmental accounting and how government keeps track of their books as well as distributing their funds.
Governmental accounting helped in refreshing previous concepts of accounting as well as introduce accounting procedures followed by governments. I now have a better understanding of governmental accounting requirements and the course has peaked my interest in this area of accounting.
yes. the instructor gives us lots of info aobut gov. accouting.
The course provided me a new perspective of accounting, its focus on the government. It's amazing how different the type of accounting is applied to governments in comparison to businesses.
It helped me better understand tax deductions.
This was a course for my major, but I don't intend to use this class's focus for my career. It was still great to get some general knowledge about government and non-profit accounting.
This class is good if a student want to become a government worker
This course was very helpful in understanding the concepts of governmental accounting.
I learned many different types of funds that the government use, including the statements and scheduling required for each funds.
This course opened my eyes to governmental accounting, I always assumed that the methods were like regular business accounting (straight forward debits and credits).
Course was taken to fill requirements, helped understand different level of accounting.
It was a good course. Very helpful with my career and job since I work for non- profit organization.
I felt this course covered the key ideas that we needed to learn. Being that it was a summer session this was difficult to do but was planned out well.
As an accounting major it has given me a whole different perspective of why accounting is so important... I would say it has given me the basic idea of how the government treat their financial matter.... Very interesting..
I feel that understanding governmental accounting is a key part of working in the accounting business, especially if you happen to end up working for a non-profit or other organization that received government funding.
I thought this course was very important. It is beneficial for my personal and professional level of knowledge.
Very good course. I am not quite sure that I will encounter the concepts covered but am glad that I had the opportunity to learn them anyway.
This class taught me a different aspect of accounting. Governmental accounting is very different from financial accounting and it was very interesting to learn a brand new way of the accounting process. Fund accounting is very different from financial accounting and I feel that this class was necessary to give a wider understanding of the field of accounting.
It would be useful for the CPA exam.
Enhanced my knowledge of Non-Profit Organizations
I realized that governmental accounting is a different style of thinking compared to financial accounting. I would say that although the class is interesting, I would prefer to pursue other accounting avenues if possible. I do feel that I have grasped a general idea about governmental accounting that should help me with my cpa exams in the future.
This course broaden my knowledge about accounting, mainly in the Governmental applications. It further help me decide where to work next after I graduate.
It helped m to understand portions of my government job a little better.

5. Please comment on the activities or resources that could be added to this course to improve your learning.
I have no suggestions as to additional resources that could be added. Mr. Kamida provided informational powerpoint lectures and aided my study with the supplemental information on the publishers website.
Not any.
I feel there were enough resources and content provided the only suggestion I have is that it be released in a more timely matter. sometimes the quiz for the different chapters would be released but the lecture video wouldn't be available yet.
I liked that all the resources were posted on Laulima at once so I was able to view the material at my own time. I wish that the lecture videos were a little longer and a little more detailed. The chapters are quite long and 25 minutes of lecture doesn't seem adequate.
I feel the resources provided were more then adequate.
no any comment.
The activities and resources currently available are sufficient.
I thought the resources provided were efficient.
Should add discussion question
I was satisfied with whatever available resource that was given to us.
For each chapter, it would be great if you can hand-pick some homework problems and walk us through the thought-process (like how you did for chapter 1 & 2). I believe that will help us to digest the material better and faster.
Good enough. I wouldn't ask anymore.
I enjoyed the videos much more than the readings. Possibly a chapter overview on a written document would be nice.
I know its a short session but i would like to see exercises added to the chapter lecture.
Discussion questions that elaborate on the more complicated technical issues of preparing the various statements would have improved my learning.
I really liked the video lectures. It really enhanced the learning experience. It is hard to learn from just reading the text and taking tests.
Although Mr. Kamida does an excellent job in providing all the resources necessary to excel in this online class, I feel that he should have one section that is face to face. I am a very visual learner and going to class really helps me understand the material and I like that I can just go up to the professor whenever I am confused about the material.
No Comment
I think just more time and an in-class course would be more beneficial to learn the differences and subject of governmental accounting.
Videos are the most important tool to explain hard concepts of the book. I wish the video lectures are longer and more thorough since these concepts can be real hard to understand just by reading the book.

I have no suggestions for improvements in Mr. Kamida's teaching style and methods.
NA
Not any.
a suggestion would be to re-examine your exam grading policy. I felt it wasn't fair at times. because someone could just guess and receive a passing score. I would have been better if you just took the higher score of the two and not give any additional points.
no suggestions, Roy Kamida is very nice and informative.
I would suggest to keep what Mr. Kamida is doing because it's effective. His videos are really good and in bite-size form, which is especially useful for people like me who has a short attention span (Mild ADD).
n/a
None.
no comment. everything sailed smoothly
Not much to say for improvements, enjoyed the class
I loved everything on this course but i would really like to see some exercises up on video like the ch lecture. I would also maybe add the discussion because that helps a lot. For such a short session it will be more effective to add the discussion
I would have liked to have practice tests available for each exam. This would allow students to get a feel for how the questions are worded and to what intensity we need to study.
I thought the class was run well.
I really enjoyed the online lectures and example videos. These resources really helped me out when the book was vague. Mr. Kamida is a great teacher.
Maybe a study guide for the exams.
Study guide for tests.
Only real suggestion right now would be to do this class in-person.
Focus more on the videos, 1 hour video is more sufficient rather than just 30 minutes.
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great local professor. I haven't had a local professor teach as well as him. I really enjoyed hearing a local accent and better yet, learning a whole lot from Mr. Kamida.
great instructor
Excellent. Despite being an online course he responds to all emails and questions within minutes of being sent. I truly appreciate that!
Very organized.
Knowledgable in government accounting
Prof. Kamida is a great teacher. He cares about the students and gives feedbacks to the students' questions right away.
my over all evaluation of professor roy kamida is that hes a great teacher and gives his students every opportunity to succeed. he was always available and answered emails in a timely manner. also he didn't just post resources from the book is also posted resources that were helpful to every day lives.
The professor provided a good deal of resources including lectures and examples which aided in understand the course material. I would take a course from this professor again.
A+++...
he is very good at his job as an accounting professor because he is very organized and compassionate about the topics and his students.
very good and helpful instructor.
Fair and although this was an online class I felt that you could really tell that he cared about students. Posted up job postings, answered questions, adapted syllabus in students' favor, allowed for make-ups when necessary, etc.
Very Good! I liked the class
I believe that Professor Kamida's lecture videos were very helpful in understanding the reading materials.
Excellent method of teaching. He made me read each chapters more than once to get a good grasp of the learning objectives
I give Professor Kamida and "A" for this course. He had the material organized and added additional interesting information concerning governmental accounting that was linked to Hawaii.
very organized. He is very helpful with his resources and his class announcements.
I like him to teach other courses. Great teacher. I will look for him again.
A, I would like to take this teacher in a regular class schedule instead of the fast summer pace but that is not the instructors fault.
Great...
He presents the material well and is quick to respond to student inquiries. I think that he could work on encouraging students to use more critical thinking to better absorb the course material.
Good job.
Outstanding instructor. Has a real knack for trying to communicate concepts and theories in terms that students can understand
Mr. Kamida is very knowledgable about accounting. I have taken other classes that he has taught and he really encourages students to learn and understand the material, rather than just memorizing it for the test. I feel that he has made fund accounting understandable and I was able to learn a new aspect of accounting.
Excellent
Awesome online teacher!
I think he is well organized, knowledgeable, and does well with the structure of the class given it is online.
He's a very knowledgeable teacher and very understanding to his students.

Im glad this course was an option for me. It was very informative and beneficial that I believe it should be a required course for students majoring in accounting.
This online class was very organized and easy to follow.
Very good information
my overall evaluation of this course is that its well structured except for the exam grading and I learned a great deal not only about governmental accounting but also whats been going on in the real world. it didn't just improve my governmental accounting skill but my accounting knowledge as well.
The course provided information fundamental to understanding the accounting world and also provided an opportunity to explore a specific field of accounting.
A+++...
I enjoyed taking this class with Roy Kamida. He did a good job making this online class helpful and organized.
Not easy, not too hard, but is essential to understanding the government's and NFP's intricate accounting system.
i enjoyed this class and will recommend it to others.
Absolutely no complaints!
very good
Well organized. Had some minor problems, but they were all cleared and fixed right away.
Above average because the lessons were really interesting and excitingly challenging.
Good course for a better understanding of how government entities account for and distribute their funds.
well put together online course. All materials are very helpful. Would recommend.
Stress free course. I loved it!
Good course to learn new materials. It was confusing at first because some of the things we learned were opposite of anything I have learned previously.
A challenge but yet very interesting......
The subject matter I pretty bland, but I don't think that can be helped.
I enjoyed this subject more than I thought I would. This is my experience for learning about government and accounting methods.
Great course
This is a tough course. Governmental accounting is very different from regular financial accounting. It is like learning accounting all over again. This course requires reading each chapter at least twice in order to learn and understand material. Although this course is tough, Mr. Kamida helps explain the material in a way which it is easy to understand by providing lecture videos and sample problems.
Excellent
Great class!
Good course, a lot to take in online and through reading, but overall well organized.
It is a very nice course, but I think it's easier to take in in regular semester, rather than summer since the time is limited.
21. Other comments:
none.
personally, I wish had taken the class during fall/spring to spend more time on the material.
no other comments.
None
Some of the questions for the exam and quizzes weren't worded correctly and left room for interpretation. I think that the questions should be looked over.
I definitely recommend this course, along with the professor, to all accounting majors.
n/a
Videos and powerpoints and examples are helpful.
Great class. I love that there were no required class discussion questions/responses.
I wish I could take in the regular semester. Thank you !!!
Professor Kamida answers email very quickly and I really appreciated the posting of the Q&A from other students in class on our bulletin for everyone to see.
Awesome course.
Had a great semester, thank you very much
n/a
There should be an in person class, especially in summer school. Accelerated summer school classes are hard enough. Please add a face to face class!
Great summer class semester went by really fast!
Please offer this online course in regular semesters as well. Also like I said, videos could be longer, and more opportunities for extra credit would be much appreciated.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I did not understand the material as good as I would've if I had the professor in front of me.
Not having that interaction with the professor
The only issue I had with my online experience is that this is my first summer, expedited semester. I work full time and also took 2 online summer courses. Being as it's such a short span of time to review subjects, I felt very rushed. This is not the fault of the school, but my own with my expectations. I plan to again take summer courses next year and at least will know to move at a much faster pace than the regular semester. I've enjoyed my experience at UH to date.
Nothing; everything was at a reasonable pace for the work due throughout a summer session.
Nothing I can think of. It was very convenient and my teacher is quite good with answering my inquiries promptly.
I didn't like the software because it is too complicated, has many features and converting the tax forms into PDFs. I also didn't like taking the class during this semester because it goes by more quick and you don't have as much time as the fall and spring semesters. I really don't like to take online classes but sometimes I have to.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I was able to have my textbook in front of me so I can check in it.
I am very used to taking online classes now because it is less time consuming than having to go to school for an hour and still have to study the same amount of time when you are out of class.
The materials, assignments, and basically everything was very organized and easy to follow and understand.
I really liked that he was quick in returning work and responding to emails. It makes the work load feel less stressful knowing that he's there for help. He made the class feel like it was face-to-face and he made it an enjoyable learning experience.
The ability to check on my class anytime of the day and be able to freely search other sources offered and suggested by our instructor.
I really like the textbook being black and white because it looks great and makes it easier to read, understand, take notes and makes the book affordable and unique. I like the grading system and the weekly assignments as homework, exams, and projects because it helped me learn the basics, tax law, rules, and completing the tax forms. I like that you could do your work anytime but must meet the deadline.

8. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The exam ahoukd take twice not only once.
Online course requires double amount of time than in class.
i have the live class
proffesor is very nice
What I liked least about my online course experience was that the deadlines were somewhat intense.
It's hard to understand the laws that come with income tax returns, but it has nothing to do with the teacher. This material is just hard at times.
