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

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
all good
I really appreciated the videos that the instructor provided. It helped to understand the content of the book which was difficult to read.
The points for each project and/or exams are seriously too high. One mistake will truly effect over all score.
The amount of things to be learned were pretty overwhelming, but I enjoyed learning about taxes and other information which I can use in everyday life as well as earn credit toward an accounting degree.

I enjoyed Mr. Kamida's class!
Professor Kamida is an excellent instructor, always helpful and very well prepared in his classes.
It was confusing sometimes homework assignment was on 2013 tax rules.
I have no issues with this course.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
many classes require an idiotic dialog between students, and this was thankfully free of that... secondly, with 2 exceptions, the grading was multiple choice, so instructor cheating in acc134 is definitely not an issue as it is in other classes
I like that Mr. Kamida is consistent and clear.
Mr. Kamida is very accomodating and has an excellent ways of teaching. Congratulations Mr. Kamida on your recent achievement!
I was scared to do this course online. I had only done one semester online and was not sure what to expect, but I am slowly getting the hang of it and Mr Kamida made it seem pretty easy. His videos were very well explained and easy to learn from.
Assignments had reasonable deadlines and the coursework was really informative
Kamida grades assignments fast so you know how your doing in his class
That the professor answers our questions quickly and not only that but allows other students to see just in case they have the same question. He grades our assignments fast and uploads the grades on time as well.
I lik the coursse because it was easier to complete all the work. I was able to do everything on my own time with a deadline. I also liked the weekly announcements boar, which elaborated more elements related to the course by all the other students. And it was nice gaining more knowledge from the instructor's comments to all the assignment projects.
I had the ability to do my school work around my work and family schedule.
He was very prompt when you have question and shows other questions students have with his answer in case we needed the info.
how to prepare federal and Hawaii income tax preparation.
Video files were available both flash and non-flash. Video's was recorded by professor and very easy to understand. Homework assignment and exams had enough time flame for freedom of schedule.
Well formatted!
17. Other comments:
only thing is an online tax prep from California covers federal and state for about $200 and takes only a few weeks... good quality here, but poor value for money, just like everything in HCC...

Great professor.
I really loved the experience in this class. The teacher is great and i sure will recommend other students for this professor.
Overall, i think it was a fun and fair instructor to work with.
Great class!
Looking forward to taking Business Taxes from you next semester.
excellent course.
Professor Kamida welcomed on-line students to live classes. This was the best online class ever to me.

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

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

Thank you for giving me the chance to enhance my learning in accounting.
The teacher was a really good teacher he updated the grades every week and was good about giving extra credit to boost our grade. If we had any questions he got back to us really quick.
This is actually my very first online class & I really did enjoy it. It also help with practicing my time management. I would recommend this class to other students.

help me know more about corp. taxation and can use it in my current job
The homework and test was different to know the problem.
This class helped me learn more about how taxes work in a Corporate setting and it was clear to see the major difference between individual and corporate tax.
This course has helped me to understand corporate tax
I was able to participate in the VITA and it was such an eye-opener to what I could possibly be doing in my future career. I learned a lot based on doing other people's tax returns.
I want to be a CPA in private practice. Knowing how to prepare taxes will be vital to achieve that goal.
This course enhanced my personal/professional development because it introduced Federal taxation, on a corporate level.
This course gave me an understanding of the various corporate taxation laws and exceptions that are available.
Taking this course has broaden my knowledge and understanding of how corporate taxations are done and how much it's involved. Hopefully, I will be able to put it into practice in the near future
I learned how to be careful with the procedures in taxes.
This class helped me to understand more about tax concepts for corporations.
this is very important course for my concentration because it related high level accounting.

I can't think of a thing. Prof. Kamida provided helpful videos, and the 2 projects were especially relevant to the subject matter. In addition, his invitation to assist in preparing real tax returns created a wonderful opportunity for OJT/practice.

Making the course in-class instead of online. Some of the material was confusing to read.
I think it would really be helpful if this class will be made into a semi online/in-person class. Since most of the chapters are tackled for two weeks, the class could meet in class every other week.
Give us more example
None! Professor Kamida is the best!
No suggestions. It was an intense course, nonetheless, it was very engaging and interactive.
Perhaps record a few short videos that highlight some of the more complex homework problems. They could be made available after the homework is due as a self-check and way to reinforce learning.
N/A
Knowing how much information this course has to offer, I think it's not a good idea to teach it online. This type of course need to be taught in a classroom setting so questions can be raised and answered by all people present.

17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....

a good professor that replied to emails quickly.
I like how Mr. Kamida tries to emphasize the most immportant topics on the lecture videos
C
Professor Kamida is quick in replying to emails if we have any questions and posts a lot of things to help us with our homework, exams, and projects.
Professor Kamida did very well explaining a complicating course.
Great teacher. Provides help when you have questions. Provides useful resources to study and understand the chapter
superb!
Well-informed and knowledgeable. Never talks down to students, but encourages good study habits. Great teacher. My second course with him, and I'm taking another.
He's a very effective instructor. He was easy to communicate with and responded to emails quickly.
Professor Kamida is an excellent instructor. He is very thorough in his explanations and is able to relate answers in lamest terms.
Great.
He is an excellent professor.
Professor Kamida is a great professor! He emails me back really fast, and also is very knowledgeable about tax concepts.

Great professor to take tax!
Really informational course. Will help me with CPA exam
Excellent.
Very helpful course.
This course was very informational. Roy's lectures really helped understand the content of the course.
This has proven to be a very challenging course, especially since it was conducted online. It has been awhile since I have taken an accounting course online and has made me realize why I try to take the course live instead.
Tough subject to learn without in person classes.
It's really not the teacher that makes me give this class a "Good" evaluation as opposed to "Excellent", it's the method of delivery.
The concepts were really hard to grasp at first, but once I understood the basis of the information by watching the lecture videos, I was able to understand the concepts more.
in my opinion, this course is very important for an accounting student, but in class may be much better.
Its a great course.

I like the way he taught us. The lecture is easy to understand. If he could give some more examples to illustrate the concept, that will be better.
VITA was such an interesting and engaging experience. I would want to volunteer again next year if given the opportunity. Mahalo Prof. Kamida!
Although I may fail this course, I have learned so much on material from the text, lectures, and assignments. Regretfully I kept getting distracted with personal stuff and did not prioritize my workload effectively and did not take into consideration the quantity of work necessary in this class.
Professor Kamida is a really good professor.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Could feel more connected to classmates with forums or chat sessions.
Not having interactive lessons
Laulima was down for maintenance in the hours that I needed it for homework.
Not having a professor to remind you of certain due dates.
Sometimes the answers to quiz/exam questions were incorrect but we were forced to choose the wrong answer to get a perfect score. It was a little deceiving when it came to learning the materials. This is more of a problem with the textbook's company than it is in regards to the class.
The only thing i had trouble with was taking the exams.
None
Nothing really. This is the best on-line course I've taken out of 10.
The course did not utilize connect as much as I thought it should.
Hope to have updated video lecture.
Nothing. This is an ideal online class.
The part I liked least about the online course experience was that it was about taxes. I think I may have learned about taxes better if it were taught in class.
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.
work at your own pace and schedule is posted ahead of time
Not all announcements are sent via email as well
There was not really anything I did not like about my online course experience, Professor Kamida made online learning very easy.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The pace and videos.
Having a flexible schedule
I was able to complete assignments at my own pace which made it easier on my schedule.
Being able to do work at my own pace.
The communication between students and the professor was the best out of all of my outline classes. The answers were given promptly and the instructions were clear and concise.
It was easy to follow. Mr. Kamida always responded to questions.
Using the actual tax forms for hands on experience
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 work load was a fair amount
Teacher was very prompt replying to my questions via emails.
I liked that the assignments required a reasonable amount of time to complete, while also testing our knowledge of the current lesson.
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.
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.
it's online but when you ask questions, Mr. Kamida responds right away
It allowed me to complete work when I wanted to with the consideration of my own personal schedule.
I liked how Professor Kamida put up a lot of videos that explained how to fill out the forms, and provided examples so we could better understand the chapter readings.
communication with professor was very helpful

This is a great and practical class taught by a knowledgeable professor. I highly recommend it to others, even if they are not planning on being an ACC major.
great course, and you learn a lot.
Great class! I learned what needed to be learned.
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.
Professor Kamida is a very good online teacher, nad made the class as easy as possible to learn online.

The exams.
Emailing questions to the professor took along time. Video lectures were not updated to current year.
N/A
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.
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.
As a "non-traditional" student (that means old fart), I miss the classroom experience.
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 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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Being able to review the lecture whenever I want.
Everything.
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
The class was well paced and allowed me enough time to complete assignments and tests.
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.
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:
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!!!!
I would recommend Professor Kamida to other Accounting Students.
Very good course, well suited for those who wants to major accounting and wants to be a tax preparer. Very helpful course and instructor.
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.
Great course to take, and definitely understandable
I am amazed at the speed with which Mr. Kamida responds to my questions. He is also very patient with those of us who are easily confused.
I 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?
N/A
i wish all the videos were updated.. but other than that it was great!
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.
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.
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!
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.
None.
The textbook is a bit hard to follow. Theres a lot of words and not enough explanation for the examples.

What I liked least is probably the amount of reading required for classes on line.

Nothing.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Mr. Kamida posted other students question on Laulima which helped me to finish my homework.
Easy to communicate with teacher
I like the convenience of online courses. Roy posts everyone's questions, and his responses which is very helpful.
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.
Professor Kamida offered tips to help with the weekly homework assignments which helped in doing my best in the work.
Prof. Kamida's timely responses.
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.
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. . .
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.
The work was a good amount not much of an overload on homework.
convenience
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.
N/A
I like everything an online course can offer.
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 would definitely recommend Mr. Kamida to other students, he holds professionalism and definitely knows his subject!
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 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!
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.

Thanks for a great semester.

N/A.

Nothing
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.
It was all good
There's nothing that I really didn't like.
Staring at the computer monitor for hours which hurts the eyes
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.
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.
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.
There wasnt anything I disliked, I enjoyed the course, Mr. Kamida is great! I wish he was teaching 202 next semester!
I didn't really dislike anything about this course.
It was a live class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Everything! All the resources were readily available online from the beginning of the semester, everything you needed was there! In-class meetings were clearly made available as well as out-of-class, in-person help from tutoring services. Lots of opportunities to earn your grade were made available, the professor communicated everything to all of the students, questions were answered promptly, assignments were reviewed, and enough time was given to prepare and do everything in the class. For students who know how to manage their time and even those who don't, this class was easily manageable on a subject that seems difficult but was easily made understandable thanks to the instructor's organization and knowledge. It was a pleasure to take this class!
you could do it a anytime.
we had a review before every exam
I like how it gave the results fast.
It was structured really well and it was fairly simple and easy to complete.
Easy to keep track of, I can use my own pace
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.
the ability to pace myself to complete assignments and not having to rush.
I like how we were able to leave early if we finished our homework on Wednesdays. :)
I was able to complete assignments when it was convenient for me as long as it was completed by the due date.
I took the live class.
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!
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.
It was a live class.

You're an awesome professor. I'll most definitely recommend you to any other business major students.
Mr. Kamida knew his material very well, and I actually retained more with him, than I did with my last accounting.
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!
Professor Kamida is an excellent instructor. He is knowledgeable about the subject and always there to answer questions.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
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
The work can be very difficult at times. The website that is used to complete our work is very complicated to learn how to use and to navigate. It would be nice is the website were more user friendly.
It was difficult at times to understand the material without face to face instruction, but Professor Kamida was willing to answer any questions.
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.
There was nothing I liked least about this course.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
good with time
I enjoyed the freedom to do the assignments in advance.
Feeling free
I would suggest chapter activities to make accounting enjoyable for us.
it was very organized
This professor was very clear and concise about what we would be doing in his class and what the due dates were.
I liked the fact that this course used Laulima and an external website. I also liked that you could work ahead but still had deadlines and grades were available the day after the due date.
I appreciated the schedule that was given right at the beginning of the semester so it was easy for me to plan ahead.
The website Wiley has extra exercises to help understand the chapter
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.
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.
I really like that this course was well organized and very flexible.
17. Other comments:
Very great class. I'm very glad he offered extra credit.
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.

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 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.
I'm not sure if it is a requirement but if its think it should be because taxes are a big part of accounting and if you are getting into the field you should at least have some exposure to it. How else will one know it if they are not forced to look at it as a part of their core classes.
I was already familiar with the process of calculating federal taxes, it was an eye opener as to exactly what it entails to ensure that the calculations are the correct amounts and the various policies, regulations, and exceptions that occur while calculating and filing for federal taxes.
I learned a lot from the small details in doing tax and some complicated and intricate calculations.
It helped me to understand the different aspects of correctly doing taxes.
The course provided an in depth explanation of the tax system and how to account for them for personal and flow through businesses.
Learning what to include and exclude on tax forms as well as filling them out.
Increased my tax accounting knowledge
I gained a basic understanding of tax compared to the little I knew from before.
This course taught me the tax portion of accounting and what it is like to prepare a tax form. It helped me to understand what it would be like to do taxes and have to prepare the different forms and schedules.
This course gave me an introduction to a potential future profession in tax preparation. It also showed the differences between financial accounting and tax preparation.
This course 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.
Provides more in depth of tax. You can see basic accounting principles are applied to some tax forms
great teacher and the lecture is very clear. Kamida is very professional and knowledgeable. Taking his taxation class, you can learn a lot and apply what you learned from him to your real tax world. Supper useful !!! huimin yao
Everything in the course was a learning experience.
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.
Excellent class for preparation for corporate 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.
This course was beneficial because it helped me understand and practice doing tax returns.
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 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 has helped me learned more about taxation than I already know.
As someone who is interested in tax preparation this course is very good.
Help to better understand tax
This class gives me a opportunity to review and learn many knowledge that I had learned in the lower level tax class.
I learned a lot of information that will help me prepare my taxes even better
I became more comfortable with filling out taxation firms.
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.

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

I feel like the website for this class was great, no other resources needed besides the book.

16. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
maybe more application and less theory talk either as part of classwork or homework
The structure of this course would be perfect for online instruction. The lectures could be prerecorded or available through Blackboard and other materials available either through Laulima or the publisher's website.
Maybe not teach it on a Saturday. And have breaks in between lectures.
I thought his teaching style was very effective.
The topics for this class are extensive, which makes it difficult to keep up with.
Make the class a little more interesting
None
Change the format of quizzes. 100+ true or false questions is difficult. If there were some T/F, multiple choice, and a tax return, it would be better.
I would have preferred if we could have went through more examples in class related to the online homework for each chapter.
Nonr.
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.
In class tax preparations would make it more enticing to learn tax.
no suggestions. like his teaching style and methods.
I liked when he went over homework problems so it was easier to understand when doing it at home.
N/A
I liked the teacher's examples. Sometimes off the wall, but relevant and helped to remember the material.
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 would like to thank Professor Roy Kamida so much for teaching us a valuable income tax class. I hope that you can continue teaching for a long time. Please do not retire yet :-).
Give us lecture notes and study guides.

Course is good as it is
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.
None
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?
17. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
he is very knowledgeable, and it was sort of easy to understand the concept of each chapter.
Mr. Kamida highly organized, tech savvy, and experienced as a teacher. He answers emails quickly and challenges students to seek out the answer themselves rather than letting us run to him every time we need to look up something. I appreciate his predictability (my 3rd class with him) and fairness.
Roy Kamida is very knowledgeable and efficient in the teaching of this course. I wish that he were more available to teach other courses. Or that more of the courses were taught by him via online.
Excellent.
Helpful, knowledgeable, and approachable. Very good professor.
he was great at connecting with the students and keeping us interested.
Professor Kamida is very knowledgeable of the topic, which is clear in his lectures and examples. His class is very easy to follow.
Answers questions through announcements in Laulima so the entire class can see.
Excellent
Mr. Kamida is very knowledgeable about the subjects he teaches. I am confident that I am learning from the best.
great teacher and lecturer. Very knowledgeable and easy to understand and talk to.
Very knowledgable in tax.
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.
Great teacher. Very organized, easy to understand, and responsive to questions.
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
I think overall is this time is good.
Great professor and really great in answering questions.
A++++...
Great professor that knows his course material.
He is an excellent teach, easy-going and is always ready to answer questions.
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.
He's overall a good and funny professor.
Roy Kamida is a great teacher. He was able to explain tax rules and explain how to do a tax return.
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.
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.
Roy Kamida is a good professor. He knows a lot about taxation.
Great teacher and very knowledgeable.
He is a great professor
Excellent!!
I wish he could teach my other classes since I learned a lot from his video lectures.
Very good instructor. Will definitely recommend to others. He makes us laugh every single meeting, which breaks the monotony of a long class period.
Very effective class
Professor Kamida is a really good professor!! I would gladly take his class again.

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.
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.
Excellent
Very informative and surprisingly interesting.
this was the ideal class. i really enjoyed it.
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.
Great way to learn how to calculate numbers on the tax form and figure out what's included and excluded in those numbers
Excellent
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 course to take if you are unfamiliar with basic tax laws.
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.
Good course.
AWESOME
My overall evaluation this course was great and got to learn lot about taxation.
Tax course is really difficult to grasp but I learned a lot.
A+++++....
Good learning experience
This is a good course if the student wants to do tax planning and understand the concepts behind tax programs.
Good course.
Was very educational. Learned a lot about tax law and about how many things you might actually need to fill out a tax form.
Good course for both personal and professional development. Recommend this course and instructor for all college students.
Superior. Professor Roy Kamida explained very detail and gave examples so we could understand the materials.
This course is a good course. It goes in depth in taxation.
Strongly recommended for those who are looking to branch into taxes but still very challenging.
The course was good
Excellent!!
That is a useful and informative class.
Excellent!
Very informative
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.
21. Other comments:
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.
An Internet course would be preferable to a Saturday Course.
no.
N/A
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.

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

Course is great, the tests get progressively harder. Need to do more studying for each midterm.
Course was very good.
it's a great class and i would reccommend it
The course was well put together and extremely helpful.
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.
Great course, learned a lot from Professor Kamida.
It's pretty hard without having a teacher to teach me and for me to ask questions as i'm trying to learn the subject throughout the time, but overall it is a good course, with the homework and how its designed and everything
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 great. Even though I'm deployed and had some difficulties, it was easy to follow the course at times.
19. Other comments:
Professor Kamida should do a video to prep students for each exam. I didn't like the exams because the exams covered topis that were in the appendices of a chapter. Because the questions were in the appendices, the homework assignments and learnsmart modules didn't have any questions that pertained to the appendix. As a result, a student could only read the appendix without any real practice.
It was great

2. If this course was taken to fulfill course requirements for your concentration/major, how did this course enhance your personal and/or professional development in your concentration/major?
This course was very informative and helpful towards my major. Mr. Kamida uploaded videos to enhance major components within each chapter.
I learned a lot about the difference between fund-basis and governmental-wide statements.
Yes
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.
This Governmental Accounting class has given me a better understanding of how our government here in Hawaii account for all their business transactions.
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.
Very good conceptual material
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 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 allowed be to further expand and deepen my knowledge of accounting.
I learned alot of new concepts about accounting. I have never learned about governmental and fund accounting before. It was an entirely new concept.
It taught me a different system for government accounting versus the economic accounting system I previously learned from other classes.
I chose this class as one of my concentration requirements and it has taught me the principles of governmental accounting.
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.
not much really
It helped me understand the difference between the accounting for businesses and accounting for governments and not-for-profit organizations.
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.
It helped a lot.
This course gave me a broader perspective of Accounting and how different guidelines apply to different groups, ie. Government, Non-Profits and Businesses may have different reporting requirements. This will help me to be better prepared and knowledgeable when applying for jobs in the accounting profession.
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.
Learning about governmental accounting is way different from what learned in accounting.
This course has instilled new information that I could use at work as a bookkeeper for a non-for- profit.
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.

None. There are already videos, book solutions, and also, Mr. Kamida is available when needed.
I think if Mr. Kamida can assign some pratical questions or homework to us(for example, journal entries, and interest and principal calculations), that will be great because now, we only focused on the concepts.
the videos are very helpful.

I wish he took more time to explain instead of point out book page numbers. I asked cause I didnt understand the book.
The course is great, the resources are sufficient.
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).
a guild line as to what is on the test not just could be anything in each of the chapters
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.
Resources were readily available and in many forms so that we don't need to download anymore applications for the computer.
No additions needed, really. This was a well-balanced course. the materials were great, not to much, not too little.
None
Interaction exercises.
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 resources professor Kamida provided was helpful enough
This instructor is well prepared. Is constantly updating resources!

None
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.
I think the text should provide more examples in detail about topics covered.
no suggestions. the course and teaching style what was I expected.
Everything was good
N/A
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.
Keep it the way it is. I wish all online classes were organized this way.
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.
A little more help than just check you're sysbuls and reread the chapter
I appreciate Roy Kamida's organization and his engagement. We have pre-recorded videos however he stays engaged by constantly checking and answering emails.
Nothing to improve. Great system.
No improvements needed, in my opinion. Professor Kamida has a great teaching style, is easy to understand and his presentation made the material seem less intimidating than it could have been, considering it was a completely new type of accounting that I had not been previously exposed to.
None
Not really sure what can be improve.
None. Professor Kamida was clear, concise, and his teachings are very effective. Videos helped a lot!
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....
Mr. Kamida is a very knowledgeable person. I would definitely take another course from him.
he is a good professor that posted students questions and his online lectures were useful in understanding the material when the book was confusing.
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.
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.
Professor Kamida is very knowledgeable according to his lectures. He gave great examples so we can better understand the material.
He was always available to answer questions or help in any way. I liked his teaching style and enjoyed his class very much.
excellent and above average
Good teacher...very knowledgeable
Professor Kamida had effective lectures and course material. I felt that he was overall a good teacher.
that he is very knowledgeable and helpful. He answers questions very quickly.
Roy Kamida is an awesome instructor
He is a great teacher and cares about students.
The best online instructor. Very knowledgeable and organized. Responds to emails promptly.
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 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
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.
Well prepared.
A+ -
Excellent
Great teacher. Material is hard to learn in a short amount of time
I thought he was very knowledgeable of this area of study.
Great accounting teacher. Made this course easier to understand.
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.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
For a summer session course, the workload was very do-able if a person stayed on track.
The course was effective. I followed the professor's steps of reading the material, watching his lecture and taking the quizzes.
I like this course.
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 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.
I really enjoyed the organization of the class and learning materials. The video lectures and power points were very helpful. I would recommend Professor Kamida to other students looking to take a class in Governmental Accounting.
excellent
Good intro class
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.
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.
Great informative class. Thank you for a great summer session!
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.
great for summer
Not the easiest one but good, the videos are very helpful.
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.
could have just done this on my own and saved myself the money I paid the school
Excellent course. A real good pace for a summer class.
Excellent teaching method.
Excellent online course.
Excellent
Difficult! Should not be taught in summer. Short amount of time little results.
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.
Interesting course. I learned a lot of information that I could apply at work.
Excellent course, excellent instructor ... needs to be offered more than just summer sessions.

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.
This should be offered as an in-person course.
It's good to make the exams available ahead of time during a very fast paced summer schedule.
The balance of material mixed with lectures and quizzes, as well as the steady pace that was manageable really made the course effective. I felt that I had the time to read the text and absorb the material, then complete the other assigned tasks. I really appreciated the clear straightforward recommendation on what order to complete the tasks in- (watch the lecture, read the text, take the quiz....) It seems so obvious, but often it is hard to find a routine when starting several new classes at once, or trying to balance school with other life priorities.
I would definitely recommend this instructor to others.

No study guide and no presentation videos from the instructor himself.
It is a little hard to take a difficult course such as accounting, entirely online (assignments, digital lectures, etc.) But this is expected with a summer 6 week intensive session. I think that a potential benefit to future students would be video lectures going more into detail about the lesson would be super helpful.

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!
The amount of work at times was alot to handle bu it was understandable since it was in such a short period.
It was extremely intense and the work load was very demanding.
Connect was very easy to use and I learned a lot.
I do not like having to be forced to buy an online code for so much money when we are already paying a lot.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Efficient and timely.
Roy Kamida is the most "on top of it" instructor I have EVER had. Not only does he respond extremely fast to questions that are emailed to him, but he also forwards every question that is emailed to him, to the rest of the class anonymously so that those of us who don't want to bother our professor all the times with little questions, can see the answers to questions he's already answered! I think that is totally cool of Roy, and I haven't had another instructor who takes the time to do that like he does.
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.
The fast pace and complete immersion of the topic during summer school was a perfect rhythm for learning the topics.
Professor Kamida was great at responding to emails promptly. He answered every question I had.
The professor was VERY organized and updated up on every assignment, and test due. He was on time for grading which was very helpfull!!
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
flexible time
Connect Plus
Instructor help
I got to do work on my own time, I think I'll be taking a lot more online courses in the future.
the timely matter that assignments were inputted into the gradebook
The ease of online resources
Professor Kamida answered any questions within a few hours and he showed everyone their questions and answers. He's very accommodating.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Good, under the circumstance of being a summer online course.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Believe it or not, I enjoyed this online class more than ACC 201 with an in classroom instructor at KCC.
GOOD! One of my favorite online courses. I greatly appreciate the email reminders for when assignments were due. Very helpful!
good
Over all Accounting 202 was challenging, especially learning it online. But the material was managable and appropriate.
I really liked this professor, it went smoothly and hopefully i end up with the grade i want.
excellent
that its best to take it this way when you arent very flexible on your schedule
Very good
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.
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.
good class for anyone to talk
I'm glad I took this class online.
Great!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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.
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.
Nothing was wrong with the course, I just wasn't as organized as I should've been.
Exams worth so much points and projects. It can bring down your grade if. You failed.

Uploading PDFs the first time was a challenge because I didn't realize I had uploaded a blank pdf until after the due date. I also disliked being unable to work ahead in anticipation of life events. I have children and home and finding the time to take an exam on the weekend was challenging for me, however I wasn't unable to overcome this challenge so it wasn't too bad.
The thing I like the least about this online course is not being able to take the exams more than once.
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.
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.
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.
What's needed for the course are all ready in Laulima. Plus the teacher are timely with announcements and responses.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
Flexibility of learning online
The schedule was very organized and straightforward, and there were always announcements/reminders regarding assignments, tests, and projects and their due dates.
The video's that Professor Kamida provided
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.
Kamida is always there to answer questions promptly and help in every way possible.
Being able to get prompt reply from him if I have questions (;
I learned how to discipline myself and time management.
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.
With this course, Prof. Kamida was VERY timely in replying. I also appreciated him making the other student's questions readily available.
I liked the unlimited quizzes and problem practices; helps me understand more thoroughly of what I am learning.
give ample amount of time to complete an assignment
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.
I liked that Professor Roy provided very helpful video lectures that gave the class a "face to face" feature.
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.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
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.
I would highly recommend taking this course with Roy online.
Very good.
Outstanding class and I plan to take ACC137 in the fall.
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.
Excellent. Kamida is a great teacher and I would recommend him to everyone.
Great !
Overall this course is very knowledgeable about tax preparation, the rules, and other concept about tax in general.
Good.
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.
Good instructor and well-organized (may just need to update materials such as power points or videos for proper year).
good lessons and examples for me to follow when I needed help.
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.
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.
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.
This course provides what students need to understand the course and pass. Any questions can be asked and teacher will answer them.
18. Other comments:
I like that I don't have to buy a new book to move on to ACC137 (business tax).
I truly appreciate Professor Kamida having to be so detailed and being able to answer each and every question a student ask of him. He is able to make the online course experience really easy for communication.
N/A
No other comment.
01. Allow ALL business courses to be in an online format versus having to commute to LCC several times per week. 02. See if it is possible for the textbook to be of better quality with durable binding pages. 03. See if there are ways for the publisher to offer a lower price for the accounting textbooks. 04. Revise the class so that the weekly assignments are entirely posted on Laulima (with associated due dates) at the beginning of the semester, as some courses at LCC use this format and most students like it that way. 05. Have someone from a local CPA firm come to LCC and give a 45-60 minute presentation on what it is like to become a CPA in Hawaii and offer it as an extra credit activity!

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Little interaction with other students, which makes the learning process easier.
What I did like least about my online course experience was somewhat hard to communicate.
I like and enjoyed it much.
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.
There wasn't really anything that I disliked about my course experience.
N/A
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.
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.
Having already taken a course from Mr. Kamida, and knowing what to expect I have no complaints.
You are not really helpful in your approach to students who ask questions. You know ACCOUNTING, your students don't-please don't be condescending it defeats the purpose of keeping students engaged in the learning process. Provide examples of the returns that you want students to complete.
I like everything about this course so there is nothing i can say i did not like.
I worry a lot when I do not understand the topic, but with the help of Prof. Kamida, I learned a lot.
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
None.
nothing
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.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Able to adjust my course work based upon my work schedule, always being mindful of the due date(s).
What I did like most about my online course experience was simple to prioritize and anything is open book.
I liked that he provided real world examples in the lectures.
The convenience of my schedule.
It was great to have any question that was asked in class posted on line.
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.
The course was well organized and the objectives of the class was very clear.
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.
Nothing
The way Professor Roy answer email back in this class is amazing. Professor Roy chow us it does care and like what he is doing.
I like the way he schedule future homework.
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.
Mr. Kamida's video presentations.
He knows his material and he's always available when needed.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I really liked Mr. Kamida's method of teaching. He provides a lot of resources for you to refer back to.
Good.
Positive, he is an very organized and effective instructor.
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.
Two thumbs up. Very good job :)
What I like most about my online course experience is, Mr. Kamida gets back to me fast when I email him a question.
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!
The teacher is excellent. The material is well covered. And I have learned a lot from this class.
This course was excellent. I wish all teacher i will have in the future will be just like professor Roy.
This course is great! I learned a lot.
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.
Excellent!
I would recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn how to do business taxes. It was a wonderful experience.
18. Other comments:
Great instructor!
None
I would take another online course from 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!
Thank you, Mr. Kamida.

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

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The text could sometimes be confusing and would require re-reading and some interpretation.
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.
The textbook and the tax software that came with it.
Mr. Kamida did a great job, I have no complaints.
I have no complaints at this time.
N/A
nothing
There is A LOT of material to go over and not enough time. The textbooks consist of materials for two courses.
no training for me as a beginner so I had to learn on my own how to take an online class
i did learn about the tax. it's helpful course for me.
There is nothing i like least about this class. I enjoyed every day of it. That is one of the reason i want take ACC 137
the time we had to complete the assignment
It was well organized, and the workload was manageable.
Nothing, this was an excellent class
n/a
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.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
My professor, Mr. Roy Kamida's expertise and dedication to his profession.
He is a great professor. He answers your questions right away. Being able to do your own taxes is amazing.
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!
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.
I really enjoyed Professor Kamida's online lecture videos. They are very helpful and informative.
whenever I needed assistance Mr. Kamida was always quick at answering back
I have more time and easy to learn
This class was well organize. I do not know how Prof Roy did it but he always answer to email within 2 hours even if i emailed him around 9 PM. I can say the professor loves the subject and he always ready to help. In that case he makes me love the subject also because i did not plan to take the ACC137 but Prof Roy make me love the subject. That was the first class online i took that was well organize like that. I wish all teacher was like Prof Roy have a passion for what they are doing. He is a good example for me if i became a teacher.
The materials were presented to us organized and clearly.
it was very convenient
I learned well with the video lecture and could watch parts over if I didn't catch it the first time.
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 like the resources that were available especially the video's which made ot easy for me to understand the content.
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.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Helpful, informative, overall a good experience.
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.
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.
Its a great course to take.
GREAT!
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.
This is a great course and I highly recommend it.
I enjoyed this course
great course. I can get more experience from this course
Good class. If someone take that class you will not regret it.If i have to rate over 5 i will give 5/5 for that class. The best teacher so far for me at Leeward.
As long as you manage your time, you will not have a problem with this online course.
very convenient
This is a good course, and the second class I've taken from Mr. Kamida, he is a good teacher.
Excellent. I cannot find a way to improve it.
I would recommend this course to my friends and I enjoyed every bit of it.
The course was easy to understand and the assignments were clear and organized. Workload was evenly paced and not overloaded.
18. Other comments:
I would recommend this class and Mr. Kamida to anyone who wanted to learn about preparing personal income taxes.
Thank you, Sir! And Happy Thanksgiving!--Sabiniana B. Baliba
I like the instructor and planning to take another course with him.
I wish all online courses were organized like this one!
The Best teacher at Leeward.
thank you for your knowledge and time
I wish Mr. Kamida taught more classes. If I could, I would take all my classes with this professor.
Mr. Kamida is overall a great instructor. I would take another online class from him.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I was nervous about learning about taxes but this class has been great!
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 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.
Reading all the material
Enjoyed to class.
assignment due date on friday. i would prefer a sunday.
I can't get help from him face to face.
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.
This is my first time taking online courses and the least thing I liked was no hands on learning.
How long the chapters in the book are
N/A
nothing
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.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I found the video's for each chapter extremely helpful!
The preparation problems to prepare for the projects and exams.
I thought the instructor was good.
Flexibility
Instructor responded quickly to questions.
The video lectures helped me understand the context of the chapters much better.
It was easy to understand because it was organized.
I liked that we got to actually filled out tax forms and learn how to do them.
What I liked most about my online experience was I had to discipline myself more with my homework and exams.
How helpful mr. Kamida is and sppedy responses to emails
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.
nothing
Gives enough time to do homework.
17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
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!
Awesome! Professor Kamida is very informative and tells you exactly what is expected of you as a student.
It is a good course, taught by a knowledgeable instructor. If one applies themselves they will learn plenty and do well in this course.
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.
kamida goes over and beyond in providing resource information.
I'd take Roy Kamida again for ACC 137.
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.
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.
It was an aweaome class
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.
aceptable
18. Other comments:
Happy Holidays!
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.
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.

Everything was good.
It was a bit hard because some of the assignments were complexed.
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.
I liked this course & instructor!
Exams are tricky and really hard. More homework involving things we can use for the exam.

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 class is very organized
The course used several concepts from ACC 134, which made learning easier to understand in regards to the new material.
The weekly assignments and projects really helped me learn the material.

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.

Excellent course in continuing what was learned in the previous Accounting class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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..
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.
It was boring so hard to get interested.
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.
nothing.
it was interesting and difference from book work
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.
I enjoyed this course. All the assignment dates were fair. There's nothing that I didn't like about this course.
Of course it's the amount of formulas that you have to memorize. But hey it comes with the course.
that we could compete the assignments at my own time
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
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.
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.
Everything was easy to manage and control.
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.
lots of help available. the class schedule; Tuesdays lecture & Thursdays help.
the immediate grading
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.
I liked that the assignments were due on the weekend instead of having to turn it in in class.
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.

17. My overall evaluation of this course is...
=)
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.
It was a good experience and very knowledgeable.
I'd rate it a 10 out of 10.
Excellent.
a lot to learn and not very interesting, but the homework assignments online are helpful
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.
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

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?
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.
If you cant pick things up quickly for your class then it is hard to do well with an online class.
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.
The homework and learnsmart alone take so much longer then all my other coursework combined.
