I thoroughly enjoyed taking this class. The class was organized and the material was clear. I really feel like it helped me gain valuable knowledge about business writing, that I will definitely use in the future. The class and the instructor were both very good and I would recommend others students to take this course.
Excellent Professor!!! The class was so well organized. Highly recommended to students who need to take ENG 209.
Electronic Textbooks are horrible.
The course was well organized and allowed me to improve my business writing skills. This is definitely a course that is relevant to today's business world. If your goal is to become a better business writer, this is definitely the course!
I really enjoyed Mrs.Hurley's class, she was well organized and went ata good effective psste. She adressed questions and feedback quickly. Thank you for a great, knowledgeable semester!
The course was very helpful in teaching me how to properly and effectively write business documents. These skills will be highly useful to me throughout my entire career. Thank you!
Very good class overall. I kind of wish the textbook was free. Using google books, ibooks, amazonbooks, or something where I think would be a great benefit for an online class rather than renting or buying the textbook. This semester I tried looking for the reading materials for my classes online via google books and such and found some and since they were for free it was a great. If you can include free books via these online sources that would help student.
Good teacher who has a good understanding of how to teach the material.
For a writing intensive course, Ms. Hurley made the class easier than what it was supposed to be. She's very organized, grouping the lessons into modules. The writing assignments were very helpful for students to understand writing in the business world. I learned a lot from this class. I'd definitely recommend Ms. Pat Hurley to those students that need to take ENG 209.
One thing great about Pat, was that during each assignment before submitting it, she let the class turn in a rough draft of the due assignment about a week before it was due. She then gave us feedback on what we should change so that we could have gotten a better grade. I thought that was really great in an online class. I'm sure if I was taking the class in person, we would have done that too, so that was a great thing that she offered.
Even though this is an online course, Ms. Hurley was very good about responding to all inquiries and interacting via email. She is a very good instructor.

Ms. Hurley was always accessible with good advice.
Some of your written things such as the Barklay's catalog had some typos, made it a little confusing sometimes.
None
I was a little overwhelmed at first by this course, but I am now enjoying it more. I am surprised at how much I have learned and applied in my daily correspondence at my work. I do a lot of general emails to clients and I can tell that my writing in general has improved tremendously. I've learned when to be casual in an email and when I shouldn't (most of the time), and using the "you attitude" of writing is used everywhere. I use it all day long at work, again just in general emails. I've applied many other techniques too that have been a pleasant surprise to my writing education. Also, Ms. Hurley is very well organized and you know what is expected to do well in her class. I appreciate that. I am very annoyed by other online courses that are less organized and do not grade assignments for many weeks. Ms. Hurley is very timely and she does what she says she is going to do, like "I'll grade your papers this week". My only criticism is that there is a lot of "paperwork" or hand-outs. I can never remember everything and I don't like reading everything on a computer so I print everything. When I print documents for the week, it's a lot of papers. Of course, it all adds up to learning the material which I understand. I just wish the paperwork was condensed some how.
Great class! My business writing has improved dramatically and by the end of this class I will have a great resume!
I really enjoyed this class, it is a great tool for all students regardless of their major.
I felt enough time was given to write the papers for each assignment. I do not think a paper and test/quiz should be assigned the same week. The book did not help with the assignments, I learned more from the lecture notes and weekly acvitities.
Ms. Hurley taught me valuable skills that will help me in my business career in the future.
I really learned a lot from Ms. Hurley's class, and I will definitely use what I learned in my personal and professional life. She was very fair, and promptly followed up to any questions I had. She gave us ample opportunity to get the best grade possible. Her class was very organized and well conducted. A+
NA
The writing assignments were valuable as lessons on learning how to apply writing concepts to different modes of written communication. There were a couple of situation I did not agree with. Having worked in the business community for several years I have not seen a couple of the writing styles taught int the class. However, I do notice that whenever I have to write something I try and use the "You Attitue".
overall, great class!
This was my first online course that I took within the UH system. I was a little nervous about taking online courses, but Ms. Hurley's course was great. It was very organized throughout the semester. It helped me to stay on track!
Awesome instructor really enjoyed this course.
I enjoyed this course very much. Pat Hurley was always availanle and replied quickly. She constantly reminded us that we aren't 'judged' and the only thing she wanted to do was help us understand the material. The material covered in this course, is very helpful with everyday life. There are things I've learned that I've never thought of. I would encourage this class to everyone, even if you're not focused on majoring in Business.
For an online class, the teacher was very supportive. There is still a lot of interaction between students and teacher. I will recommend this class and instructor to everyone.
I enjoyed taking this class and learned a lot of valuable skills. The assignments seemed carefully chosen and were very useful and applicable to the real world. I also enjoyed using Barklay's catalog. It really made the writing assignments interesting and relatable. I know this is an English course, but way too much emphasis is put on grammar. One simple typo does not warrant an almost 10% grade reduction for the assignment. Nobody is perfect and mistakes happen. Also, students should be able to turn in assignments after the due date for partial credit. I understand the reasoning but I feel teachers should allow it to at least encourage students to do the assignment, rather than not do it at all, knowing they won't get credit for it.

21. Other comments:
Just one comment about quizes. It's confusing when taking quizes that we were instructed to first print out than log into the exams link to do because often times the questions on the print out were not in the same order as the actual quiz.
