22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He is very good abot walking around the classroom and checking where each student is on each assignment. He is also open to answering any question if a student has one.
He allows students to interupt him during lecture and ask questions about something they do not understand and answers them fully.
He helped students during class with questions.
help out alot
He was there for us when we had any type of questions on any of the assignments or anything related to the course itself.
He would ask the class if we understood his lectures.
Vern shows concern for students by making sure that we all understand the topic and how to correctly code the program so that it will run with no errors. If someone is having trouble with a certain part of a topic, he will do his best to make sure the student understands how the process works in the program, and what lines of code to write.
Very good, helped all students. Great teacher!!
he made sure every student understood the material
Went around the class when students raised their hands and gave them advice
The only thing I did not like about the class was that sometimes he goes really fast through his examples. This make it frustrating if you have problems. But almost all the times he goes fast he posts the example online.
He shows concern for students by asking if anyone has a question to ask after a lecture. He also comes to help you when you raise your hand as soon as possible.
When turning in work, he would briefly skim it to see if there were any glaring mistakes and hand it back telling us how to fix the mistake, so that we would get a better score on it.
After the lecture we will have a period of working on our assignments and Vern promptly answers our questions whenever we're stuck
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I like that he gives out exam study guides a week prior to the actual exam day. and that he gives students alot of time to work on assignments at a cost of handwritten exams (no computer aid, notes, etc.) Exams are doable, once you go over previous assignments, read all handouts, and basically redo assignments by hand as practice.
It was hard to understand a lot of what was being talked about in class because he goes so quickly through lessons.
i coundnt see the projector sometimes
I liked how he broke things down and explained them as much as much as possible as well as how he helped us with the assignments.
he always help student to solve the problem
I liked how he did hands on demonstrations.
I really liked his teaching style. He makes good use of examples and guides us through on how to code the program, and then will leave the rest of the program up to the students, using the same concepts that we had learned for that lesson.
I liked how he would go over the topics knowing that this is foreign subject for most.
I like everything , dislike nothing
N/A
I like the fact we are coding hands on with the Professor, this really get the information to sink in really well.
I liked the way where he would demonstrate and lecture at the same time on the projector, it felt like he was doing it with us; guiding us as we watch his examples and follow what he's doing on the screen. No dislikes.
what i like most was that he was always walking around helping students who needed help.
He walks you through the assignments then leaves the rest for you to finish. He gives you the general idea and deals on how to do the assignment and leaves the finishing touches for you to finish.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
The course is hard at first, but since its an entry level course, we cannot complain. This course is hard especally for students who are new to programming because we have to learn different methods of coding in a program. It gets easier when we go over the handouts the night before and work on every assignments given.
Very helpful though if you need help outside of class it is hard to see him due to other class times during his office hours.
hes a great teacher
It was a very good course I learned alot and i think the way he helps students is good.
He's a nice teacher
This course was fun.
Really great class to take. Although the programming process can be very difficult for some, Vern makes it very enjoyable, and will help you if you have any problems.
Its great dont change the setup.
Nothing
N/A
I don't have anything else to say about the course or the teacher. I enjoyed the class and how he taught, I have no regrets of taking this course. I'd be willing to take a different/higher level course with him teaching.
Good work
Even if you think python programming is hard, just keep on pushing and you'll make it through. Vern will definitely help you if you keep on trying to understand the programming
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, he is a very good professor. The class is not easy but with his help it is esier to understand and learn.
Yes. regardless of tough exams, it benefits the student because it shows how much basic coding the student knows when taking the exam, and without any aid (such as no open-notes, and all codes are handwritten instead of typing codes on the computer)
Yes, it is a good class and easy to pick up because he goes through it with you and helps you understand lessons.
yes because hes a very helpful person
Yes i would because he knows the material well, he explains it well and he provides excellent for the course and other things.
Yes, he's good teacher for beginner, details and easy to understand
Yes, because it is easy to understand him and his lectures.
Yes because of his teaching style and his grading is very fair.
Pay attention because coding is not easy.
Yes, because he is a great teacher
Yes
Yes I would definitely reccommend this class to anyone interested inthe CENT program.
Yes I would recommend Vern Takebayashi to other students, but then again it would depend on how the students learn. Students who aren't so much a visual/hands-on learner will have a harder time because most of time during the lecture you are looking at a screen and following along with what he's doing while you're listening to him explain it.
Yes because he is a very good teacher, who is clear and helpful.
Yes, I would definitely recommend Vern for cent 110. You can instantly tell he's been teaching for the years and kept up with the changing flow of technology. I knew nothing about python programming and he made this course easy to understand the meaning behind python programming
26. Other comments:
continue to provide studyguides and add more problems outside of required assignments, for students to practice.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he gives us a lot of time to work on labs and projects in class.
He would personally ask us how we are doing on our assignments, projects, and classes.
helped out alot
Went around the class when students raised their hands and gave them advice
Professor always walks around the room during lab time to check if his students need any help. In addition, he always comes to his students whenever he or she raises his or hand. He is ready help and discuss any issues with assignments or the class.
by explaining things very well
He is very helpful
He would always walk around helping students.
Professor Takebayashi showed care for his students by making sure there was time enough in class for one on one help if necessary.
He made sure all the material he taught in class were clear and understandable to everyone.
He was available to everyone in the class and always answered and acknowledged answers.
he took the extra time to help and explain coding questions and as well demonstrate visually on how to achieve problem solving.
Is open to any questions or concerns that students had during assignments and projects. We are able to email him and he responds within 24hours.
He walks around the class helping students out what they got wrong and corrects them.
He is always available whether during class time or during his office hours
He is one of the most humble and respectful instructors I have ever met at HCC. Do you know his creds? Amazing.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
study guides before exams are helpful, especially sample questions.
I especially liked the way he walks us through steps with the use of examples very similar to our assignments.
deidnt like that i couldnt see the porjector when the code had gotten longer
N/A
the way that he taught his lessons were good
Like = easy to understand Dislike = nothing
I liked how he would show different ways to solve a problem.
I especially liked the ability to follow along with any example Professor Takebayashi was teaching at the time by using the computers we had in front of us. It led to a much better way to comprehend the material than just notes alone.
I like how he slowly eased he's way through the material and progressively increases the load of material. It made learning the programming language a lot easier and learning how it works.
I like how he's always available and his assignments actually help with final project.
i like how vern taught the class. each of his lab would be a helping guide to do the next project.
I liked the projects and assignments we had for that class. Me personally i'm a hands on/visual learner so his lecture and examples for assignments were easy to understand and to follow. Professor always helped students when we were stuck or needed help with the coding.
His a pro teacher but the vocabulary words are high.
there is nothing I thought I disliked about his teaching method. He is actually very thorough with his teaching
Excellent prentations. I was an instructor too. This guyis good!
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
add more sample questions for students to practice outside of the course, or recommend an online learning aid such as CodeAcademy for extra practice.
He is very knowledgable and is one of the best teachers I've had.
great teacher
N/A
n/a
he is good
keep up the good work.
He is an outstanding professor, and has a great understanding of the subject material. His tests and quizzes are fair, and all work and assignments are laid out in detail, so there is almost never any confusion.
He's many years of experience in programming made learning programming fun and interesting rather than boring and tough to retain.
TAKE IT
he knows his stuff, and he teaches it well.
Caring for his students, challenges us mentally, keeps the energy up in the classroom.
If he could, try to explain the works more simple or easy to understand.
The instructor is very passionate about his field
This guy is the best.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes. as long as students keep up with work and follow the study guides for the exam, then there should be no problem passing the class
Yes I would recommend this teacher to other students. He cares about his students and their well being, he has a teaching style that really engages students to learn what needs to be learned, and he tries to make his tests/quizzes/exams similar to our class assignments but still challenging.
yes very helpful
Yes
I highly recommend other students take ICS 111 with Vern because he knows his subject and teaches very well. His labs and handouts are the perfect tools to succeed in his class.
yes
yes because he is good teacher
yes because he is a great teacher.
I would. If someone was interested in learning about basic Java Programming, this class will teach you that and much more.
I would definitely recommended Vern Takebayashi to other students because he makes learning programming simplier to learn in a different ways.
Yes, because he knows his subject and he can explain real well.
yes, he knows how to teach and help others.
Yes, I would highly recommend him to other students because the class is doable if you show up and read all handouts. It is easy to understand concepts, and if you need any help other students and the professor are available to help each other.
I would recommend Vern Takebayashi to other students because he does help people a lot. and many students likes him.
Yes, like I've said before he is very thorough and knows his topics
Yes. Excellent instructor.

This survey sucks. I was giving you all of my thoughts as student at what is actually happening, but it reset me. I'm not going to retype all my gripes. Figure it out for yourself. Vern is great. He goes, you are toast. What do I see in ALL the classes I have been taking? Call me for a meeting and I will tell you. It's going to mean that you guys are going to have to start doing actual work. Instead of walking around campus and smiling. I am Dennis Yamashiro. I'm in your records, and believe me, what I have got say is not nice. So maybe you don't want to meet with me. If I was you, I wouldn't. You met me before. I filed a sexual harassment complaint against one of your instructors. Like I said, maybe you don't want to hear what I have to say. Which you guys are supposed to respond to and give me back the results. What is the state policy on a sexual harassment complaint? Does the HCC policy override the state? Who the hell cares? Right? I know you don't. BUT I guess that is not a part of your policy. Funny. Like I said you guys are way smarter than me. I admit it. I am an idiot. I guess your legal department thinks I am an idiot too. Funny how the city and HPD treats all of this so differently from HCC. I guess you HCC people are way smarter and know better. Sorry I don't have a college degree. I'm not smart like you guys. Take the challenge and feel the ouch from me ; - ) I'm that stupid retired cop! I don't care about the lady from Waimanalo who was humiliated. It's up to her to pursue. I don't care about that idiot instructor that encourages people to hump desks and call women "cum buckets". That's what you agree that acceptable, fine with me. I care about STEM. I care about the CENT program. I FEAR that your inattention is going to cause this program to FAIL. YOU have got to start recruiting the right people!

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He walks around class to help students. He also encourages to email him for questions and such.
Professor Takebayashi is very easy to get a long with and he builds a rapport with the students.
He would actively encourage questions and reiterated concepts for everyone if someone had a question.
He always asked how I was doing when he knew I was sick and missed a couple classes.
He cookie cuttered the code so that it was easy to complete assignements.
He asks for help, offers help, and help students that have a hard time on the course subject.
vern was available after class and outside of class as well as through email.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
He gives out a lot of examples and helps us during class time. I really like when he shows what he does on the screen and explains what each step does. It made it easier to understand the coding. The handouts are really good and informative. Classwork and homework was a good way to practice coding. A lot of the class time was used completely. My only complaint was his voice can be somewhat soft and mumbled, but I understood most of what he said or his examples on screen would show what he was explaining.
Like: the length of the class- gives us time to complete the work. I really like how all the assignments are real world applicable. Opportunities to work on: his answers to questions can be a bit lengthy. Sometimes lectures goes a little off topic. More examples or readings to work with.
I liked how the class was split into two sections: lecture and time to work on classwork and homework. It gave time for students to apply what was covered in the lecture while an instructor was present.
I liked that he is very smart and tries to make a hard class understandable.
I liked tracing the code, debugging, and watching the projector to learn concepts of coding. I disliked the handwritten exams and algorithms. Comment blocking parts of the code describing the function should be enough. I found myself writing the code first then the algorithm.
Some of his choice of words is not clear. Sometimes he uses high level words that some of the students don't understand. It's like he expects us to know those words.
vern is very knowledgeable about this subject and was able to assist with any mistakes or erros i had
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Vern is an awesome professor. He gave me some good advice that I would want to take. His advice can be useful for real life applications as well.
I think professor Takebayashi is an amazing professor! He is an intelligent man, knowledgable in many disciplines. It's interesting to hear him talk about other topics. I think he would be an awesome mentor as well.
This course was very interesting. I learned more about a different programming language, different file storage formats, and processing file input and output.
Change this course to Writing Intensive because of all the algorithms we had to write.
The course teaches python. It was easy at first and it gets more complicated.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes. He's very informative and helps his students. He's a great professor and you'll certainly learn from his class. He seems informative in a lot of things and will help outside of class as well.
Yes! He's very knowledgable and makes the class interesting.
I would recommend Vern Takebayashi to other students. He is very open to questions and helps students to learn the material as well as other things relevant to CENT majors.
I would recommend Vern because he is very helpful.
Yes
Yes. He's really helpful with the class works.
yes.
26. Other comments:
Overall, I enjoyed the class and wouldn't mind taking another one of his classes.
I really enjoyed the class! I can't wait to take his next class.
I like how he gives study guides before the exams and how he helps students in each inclass, homework, and project. He's really helpful.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He stays a little longer after the course time ended.
staying passed class time for students who had questions and wanted to work longer
Mr Takebayashi stays after class, allows students to come in during of time, and makes great efforts to ensure the students understand the course material.
Asks if anyone needs help on assignments and projects.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Vern is really considerate on his students when something unclear about the lesson comes up.
constantly uses real-life examples
I liked that he seems to have a mindset that is to focus less on grading out come and more focus on ensuring the students fully understand the material. The only thing I didnt like about the course was that he sometimes teaches bad habits, although he does tell when a habit is bad and should not normally be done.
Lab handouts weren't like other classes. It would have been nice if instructions on handouts were more like a list of step-by-step procedure to doing the lab. It could have made the assignments much easier to do.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
The course was new though I managed to learn it.
great instructor if you actually want to learn
The manner in which he taught actually forced me to learn the material, as well as learn new and easier methods to complete the tasks.
The course definitely requires that you understand the materials or you won't be able to progress to the later stages of the class.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, because he really will help you in each day.
i would recommend Vern to people who are serious about learning the subject he is teaching
I would recommend the course to any one who actually interested and wants to learn the material, not to those who are not interested and want an easy grade as the course can be quite difficult.
I definitely would. He's a positive figure in the class. Tends to make the lecture more interesting by showing examples and telling us what consequences it may have.
26. Other comments:
NA
The course relies heavily on using Linux OS. The course description should note this while recommending students become familiar with basic Linux administration commands and procedures. Perhaps a prerequisite or corequisite course that emphasizes on Linux administration would make the course less difficult and more easily understandable.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Checking on their progress
Always was available outside of class. Would make time to fit your schedule. Was very understanding about tardies and absences if you gave a valid explanation.
If they are behind and if they do not turn in their assignments on time by the due date.
He is always walking around helping students with their work.
Was available outside of class, and also gave time to complete assignments in class during which time you could ask for assistance and he would provide however much or little assistance you required. Whether it was just a simple question or a more complex question he would take a look and offer his help.
By asking if the students know what is going on.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Like his lession
Liked how we could work on the labs in class and he was there to help if had any questions.
I like the way how he explains the topics and concepts of the subject of ICS to his students and he knows about computers very well. I did not like they way he makes the exams very hard and not the same as the study guide he gives us.
I liked how he explained the lessons, and showed good examples of how to do them.
No "especially" likes or dislikes the subject matter is not the easiest for me and beyond that I have no problem with his method.
How in depth he got with the material
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
GOOD
Granted its a programming class, but it is really hard to pay attention to lectures. Much more efficient to learn by doing and working through examples as a class.
Vern Takebayashi is a very good instructor and he knows his students very well and tries to be close to them so that they could definitely succeed.
I believe he is a fair teacher, spells out his policies in a clear and straightforward manner and is willing to assist you if you really want to succeed in the class.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yes, he a good professor
Yeah because he really knows his material.
Yes, because he is a very excellent instructor and provides very structured concepts of ICS very well and outstandingly.
Yes, he is a great teacher who helps all the students when they ask.
Yes and no, for the subject matter I believe he is very knowledgeable. And if you are very interested in the subject matter or are planning to go into a field that requires the skill set learned it is a very good class. For those who need it more or less to fill a prerequisite I believe it depends how hard you want to be challenged by the material.

Always stopped in the middle of each to assignement ti make sure everyone was at the same point
He explains his self well & clear, and is very patient with his students.
He shows concern for students by asking us if we need any help on the assignments we do it class. He also show us what we have to do in order to get the assignment complete.

He would walk around to see if anybody needed help doing an assignment.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
easy but yet challenging, a lot of learning too
I really liked the way he taught this class. He taught this class step by step and little by little he would stop in between just to help the students that didn't understand it.
I like the way he grades tests. He always says not to leave anything on the test blank because he will not give us points for it, but if we put at least something down he will give us partial credit for the effort we give.
i liked the hands-on experience
I liked that the instructor made it very clear for us what we learning in excel, word, etc. and helped us at anytime.
It was kind of quick but it was easy to catch up
I like how he would stop to answer questions and make sure everyone is on the same page
Showing us how to due the assignments on the projector.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Always asking if anybody needed help as well as checking to make sure everyone was on track every so often to make sure no one fell behind.
Professor Takebayashi shows his concern by giving them advice and chance to bring grades up.
I learned a lot from this ICS 100 class. I also liked Vern's teaching technique. He spoke clearly, and at a modern pace. He teaches in a way that everyone can understand, and if a student needs help he makes sure he makes a time in the lesson to help students understand the different assignments.
By helping each student with the assignments to make sure they were done correctly and the student understood the material
He made sure that we all understood the work, and that we did not get lost or confused by the assignments.
ask students if they needed help.
By helping explain complex terms and procedures.
He has helped me many times, as I am much slower than many of the students. He would find time to explain and show me what steps to take, when I got lost.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I just liked how he taught the course overall, handled it in a very good way.
I like that all his notes are very helpful and that he uses good examples. I disliked that we have such a short time to finish class work.
He taught a little too fast.
I liked that Mr. takebayashi related our assignments to everyday life, thereby making it easy to relate to the work.
His helpful, easy to understand the work that was presented.
Straightforward, practical information for future career/life usages. One thing he could work on is slowing down or pausing in between steps on how to do things. Sometimes, other students had a difficult time keeping up, but he did stop to help others when breaks were given.
He kept the class interesting by applying daily activities which we use in life to show us how we can make life simpler by using these techniques and help stay organized for business and personal records.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Good teacher, I would enjoy taking another course from him.
Take ICS 100 from Takebayashi. Youy will learn and have fun at the same time.
His a good ICS teacher.
He's a cool guy. His mustache kind of reminds me of Nietzsche.
He was an excellent teacher...I enjoyed his class very much.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, he teaches very well and he makes sure every keeps on track.
Yes I recommend his class because his class is very useful if you want to work in front of a computer in an office.
Yes, because he teaches and helps students, to make sure the students understand what he is saying. As long as you pay attentions like a responsible student should you wont have any problem, because he teaches well.
yes
Yes. He applies life to the work making it easy to understand, and then you learn better.
Yes I would recommend Vern Takebayashi to other others because his a easy teacher with good knowledge.
Sure. He's an all right person.
I would highly recommend Mr. Takebayashi to all students.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
By always asking us questions and if we had problems.
Made himself available for questions in and out of class
Mr. Takebayashi is willing to spend a significant time outside of class to help students in my class (myself included).
He ask if anyone as a question also he helps students one on one.
He expresses it openly by constant addressing our concerns for our understanding, answering (even asking!!!) questions we may have. He also daily gives printouts at the start of the lecture even though the are also uploaded on his laulima as well.
He helps students who stays after class and also stays too to help out students who need it.
he keeps his temper consistent throughout the semester
He helps me out when Im having problems with the classwork.
He always allows class time to do daily work assignments. And is always available to answer questions during class time and his posted office hours.
He is available outside of class to answer questions.
Made sure class understood the material
Making himself available for everyone during instruction and after! He replied to my emails in a timely matter too!
He is always available during office hours and more, and is more than willing to spend time with his students to make sure they understand the material well.
He always asked for students opitions and questions of a particular topic after each lecture, or after exams review days.
Mr. Takebayashi shows his concern for his students by explaining what we will be doing for our work. After explaining, he allows us to work for the rest of class time and we can ask for his help as long as he is unoccupied.
very concerned
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
He takes his time to explain it. Also gives time if a student is not catching on.
there is no book, and there is no course outline. impossible to plan ahead for this course. once you fall behind you can't catch up. instead of liking this subject, i am so sick of it, i hate it. i wish i had never taken this course.
The only thing I disliked was Project 3 because it seemed rush. Didn't fully understand GUI Programs, yet I needed to try figure it out myself. When we were placed into groups for the last project, we didn't really talk to have much time to discuss what to do because GUI programs were still a bit confusing for us. Other than that, I enjoyed this class.
n/a
I like the way Vern taught because he gives lots of examples.
I immensely enjoyed his class, he was informative and passionate about his subject, he gave very detailed example and clarified any questions I had in great detail in fact he added more as well! I enjoy how he uses all the technology within his class extremely effectively wither it be the promethean board, projector, dropboxes, e-mail, etc. Its very refreshing to have an instructor who is so technologically inclined.
I kind of dislike how he goes over somethings in class. I think it would be better to go over more complex examples(like a lab type of example) than doing very simple examples.
I like he approaches the students whenever he or she asks questions
I liked that he used simple problems for daily assignments to learn about Java. but his explanations of method, class, main method was not clear or simple enought in the first two weeks. results of exam1 showed avg grade barely passing, low 60%. means alot of students did not understand, including me. final project was very hard compared to lab assignments, if he did not give examples, there is no way to finish. he needed to explain the examples with the class.
He is very knowledgeable and helpful.
gave enough time to do labs and explain conecpts well
I really liked his examples he used in class and his hand outs give a lot information and background of the things he lectures about. I disliked that there was no candy. :) just kidding around. Vern is a great teacher.
He made the course challenging enough that you have to work for your grade.
I liked the way the professor has passion for programming in that he knows his stuff, and that he knows a lot about computers as a whole.
What I liked about Mr. Takebayashi's way of teaching was that he is very helpful. There is nothing that I particularly disliked.
like almost everything he teaches and dislike none...
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
He taught me a lot about the class.
N/A
o.oV
He is awesome! Very helpful!
I'd like to show him my appreciation somehow, i've never before taken a programming class although i had always had an interest within the subject hes given me a great learning experience and I KNOW ill pursue this as hopefully my career now. I can only hope to become as knowledgeable as him.
He is a very nice and helpful person.
he's awesome
Great course! I learned alot!
great course, you learn a lot. Great teacher who helps his students when they are having trouble or needs help
Vern's course is challenging and tests to see if the student is motivated enough to persevere and learn.
I look forward to taking more classes from him.
His course may be challenging in that he dumps a lot of lecture handouts and stuff relating to programming. But the professor will make time to help his students whenever possible.
Keep up the good teaching!
a great programming instructor...
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes. Very easy to get along with and will learn a lot from.
no, being on the student side of the desk it is very difficulty to understand what he is trying to teach. this class is more like a self study class. I have to depend on so many outside sources to get the help i need to learn this subject.
I'd recommend him to other students because his class was pretty interesting. Learning programming is difficult, yet attending his classes, doing the different labs and projects helped me to understand the material easier.
Yes, Mr. Takebayashi is very helpful as an instructor.
Yes, because students will learn a lot in this class.
Most definitely, in fact I already have! I have a friend taking a similar course at KCC and he is suffering and detest programming because of it.
Yes
Yes, because he teaches good
not for Java, because he assumes we understand when we didnot. yes, because he is fair, and always willing to help.
Yeah! He is one of the best professors on campus and you will learn alot because he will make sure you learn!
yes, because it's material that's good to know
YES, because his labs are EXTREMELY helpful, his lectures are FILLED with valuable information and he knows what he's teaching about!
Yes, because he is truly interested in his students.
Yes, if you have or had experience in programming he's the professor to take, and even if your new to programming he'll still take the time to help you the best he can.
Yes, because although some of the material is somewhat difficult to understand, Mr. Takebayashi is ready to assist students.
ofcourse...cause he really help students in the best way he can...
26. Other comments:
Thanks
I learn another awesome program language.
PLEASE KEEP TEACHING WITH YOUR ENTHUSIASM AND LOGiC BASED APPROACH ITS THE BEST CLASS I HAVE EVER TAKEN!!! no joke
for the final project, he could have groups from beginning of class, then do small pieces weekly of the project with the labs. that way we would have better understanding of project 3. for example, 1st lab was to create a simple window. from there he could have added menus. then next week menu items. then Active listener, then action event method, with action command to run individual menu items.
Thank you so much for a great semester!

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He gave pretty clear examples on certain subjects.
Professor Takebayasi was always available for extra help when needed. He continuously gave us students opportunities to improve our grade by adjusting his coursework. There is no reason why any student should fail this class. Professor Takebayashi gave more than enough opportunities for us to pass.
HE is open for questions at any time and encourages email communication for help outside of class.
Would always ask to see if we had any questions
He always helps students when they are stuck. Gives enough time to complete labs and projects.
Professor Vern gives handout to students that explain everything what we'd do for the next session. The handout is very easy to understand. If something we don't understand, we just go ask and he explains everything clearly.
He is always there to help out students that has hard time understanding the concept of Java. He would come to students before students come to him in most occasions.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I liked everything.
Professor Takebayashi is very smart and knowledgeable about the course material. I enjoy his teaching methods by showing in depth examples on how to apply the concepts to our labs and projects.
Very helpful and fair teacher, respects students and is very knowledgable about material. Dislikes: Lectures are long and he types very fast sometimes. I would like to work with other classmates sometimes as well too.
He explained things very well, but programming wasn't my best class and it showed
Things that I like about Vern's teaching style are that he is a excellent ICS professor who know quite a lot about his subject. I learned a lot from him about basic algorithm which I never learned before. Things that I dislike about Vern's course is that it's very hard. If you don't listen well, you wouldn't understand enough to do the exam.
I wish the class hours were longer. The subject itself is very complicated, so it would have been better if it was longer like CENT110 or CENT132.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
The course was fun, and Vern definitely made things pretty easy to understand.
Excellent and very smart teacher. He is always enthusiastic and seems overall happy to teach class everyday.
Very thorough
Good teacher, but lessons were well advanced. Not enough time to understand the material.
He is an exellent ICS professor, and he also very passion about his students.
He is a good teacher who enjoys teaching and loves working with Java. As a course, it is a bit tough for people with no programming background.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I would definitely recommend Vern because he's a very clear and active professor.
I would recommend Vern to other students only if they are willing to put effort. Vern is a very fair professor, but students shouldn't expect to pass just by showing up to class.
Yes. The level of help he provides and how involved he gets to help students understand the subject is very good.
Yes and no. This class is twice as hard from ICS 100 and when you are taught by two different teachers it was difficult to adjust to both types of teaching
Yes, if you're well familiar with java. No, if you're trying to learn the concepts because this class seems advanced and almost as if we're suppose to know the material already.
I would totally recommend to other students who already knew about basic Java and want to study on a higher level.
Yes. He is very helpful. He knows a lot about Java and always looking to make it better.

Probably the best ICS instructor at HCC. Keep up the great work!!
Vern is very helpful, just needs more time to understand certain lectures.
I wish there were more night classes and weekend classes even if it costs more. I want more people to see the benefit of being in school while having a full-time job. There are more things you could relate to, which makes it somewhat easier to understand the programming as a whole.

1. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Mr. Takebayashi gave clear examples on how to complete a certain task on labs and projects. He provides positive feedback and is willing to assist students to complete projects.
He clearily explained his motivations for teaching one model of web app development (ruby/gwt/sql) over another (php/sql)
Vern is very knowlegable about the subject and will sit down with students to solve problems.
2. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
I highly recommend students to enroll in courses being taught by Mr. Takebayashi. I hear students complain that computer programming is hard but Mr. Takebayashi made this course fun and interesting.
Tough course if you've never had experience with the subject
3. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I highly recommend students to take courses being taught by Mr. Takebayashi because he made the subject fun and interesting. In rare occasions, he'll talk about the importance of effective communication when working in a group to complete a project. I found thus information very important.
yes
Though the material for the course may be challenging, Vern is always there to hep

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He helped us when we needed help.
Whenever Mr. Takebayashi introduces a new assignment he goes through it step by step with the class on the overhead or on the board and if anyone is having problems, he will ask if the students need help and assist them to make sure we are on track before continuing on with his lecture.
During his lectures he would stop and ask if the class is doing ok. He would walk around to see if there was anyone in the class who is confussed.
After he shows the class what to do, he asks the class if anybody is lost, and if any one is lost, he helps them out.
He demonstrated all the worksheets in class, and he also explained it well.
he stops in the middle of lectures and actually helps us out
By taking the time to individually help the students who were obviously confused.
He always ask if we need help and if we didn't he would see us one by one an help us individually till we understand.
He always made sure any questions were answered if anyone had any.
He was always there for help in class and out of class. He made sure that the class was on tract and understood the material taught.
He is able to help everyone on the class assignments.
He always made sure that if we had questions or needed help, we'd get the answers to it. He was easily reached by email.
He takes time after lectures and helps individuals who were slower to catch the lesson
He shows his concerns by helping each student that did understands the material within the class period and goes and teaches one on one each student the material and you can tell he enjoys teaching and helping his students achieve
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Sometimes I felt a though he explained things to quickly and when using the overhead projector i could NOT keep up. Its hard to try and do what he is doing if he goes toooo fast. Just needs to slow down the step by step instructions so everyone can stay current on what he is doing.
I enjoyed his way of teaching the course. He moves at about the right pace and always makes sure that we understand what he is teaching us.
I liked the fact that he taught us step by step while operating on the projector screen.
I liked that Mr. Takebayashi show us step by step what to do on computer application and that he has showed us a variety of programs.
I like the way he explaining thing because he gave more example and made it really interesting.
he explains everything clearly. and he speaks well about the subjects taught in class.
Vern is a a good guy, but he moves absolutely way to fast. I spent most of the semester trying to keep up. And when I tried to stop him by raising my hand it was like he didn't even notice. I felt like I wanted to head butt the computer at the end of 75% of my classes. I sent an email trying to ask to be excused from my absenses do to a kidney stone I never received a reply. I am a punctual student I'm not a kid who's trying to get away with cutting my classes. Not every student is a young computer wiz or a really tech savvy person. I think that's what he needs to understand. Once again I don't thik Vern is a bad person or teacher, I think he just expects everyone to know alot about computers before entering his classroom.
He kept things very interesting via the difficulty of what was learned. I feel like i didnt waste my time.
Nothing he is a well thought teacher.
He made it very easy to follow along with. As long as you came to class and paid attention.
I really like that he was there to guide us through our assignments.
He helped everyone that struggled on the assignments
He gives real world examples of his lessons to help the students understand the lessons
I liked his patience with teaching his students and his character that he harries himself with. Makes a very good learning environment..
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
He is a nice teacher. Not too personable but hey he's here to teach and not socialize i guess.
In this course I enjoyed learning about calculating a monthly payment for a loan. It's an important skill to learn and will be helpful for the future.
He is a very patient teacher and goes over instruction clearly.
n/a
MAHALOOOOOOOOOO FOR EVERYTHING. HOPE TO SEE YOU AROUND. GOD BLESS.
He clearly knows the information he is teaching about.
Very organized schedule!
N/A
he is the best choice for ics100
Not much but to keep What he is doin now ...
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
yeah i guess i would.
Yes I would because he is easy to understand and he is approachable when you have questions during his lecture or questions on the assignments.
Yes. His course work is demanding and his exams are difficult but I have learnt so much so I would recommend him to other students.
Yes I'd recommend as a teacher. He made sure everyone understood, answered all questions from students before moving on and gave one on one help to whoever needed it.
I would recommend Mr. Takebayashi to other students because he is an excellent teacher, and teaches many very helpful programs.
I think he just has to keep doing what he does now.
yes because he cares about the students
Yes. I learned alot about excel more than ever.
:):):):):):)
Yes because he helps everyone majority of the time.
Yes, because professor takebayashi made learning simple. He is very clear in the lecture and was always there for help.
Yes, because the course is not that difficult
Yes, the class is very useful. We learned things I can apply to my everyday life. He is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and helpful.
yes, he will teach a lot in the short amount of time we have in the course. i learned more in his class the the other times i took ics100 and failed.
I would recommend him to other students because from taking his course I learned that he has great teaching skills ..

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Made sure projects and assignment objectives were clear and accomplishable within a given time frame.
Vern always asks the class if there is any questions. Vern is always available either after class or via email to help out with questions/labs/exam/ etc.
he helps us out when there is something we dont understand
He makes time for his students,........He is very approachable when you need his help.
He would not finish the class until we haven't learned anything from that day.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Clear and precise.
The type of subject that must be taught is very hard to teach to most people. Due to the complex process behind Java, it maybe hard for people to grasp some of the terms. Vern did explain the definition and gave clear explanations. For me, it was just that I can't grasp the concepts fast enough, so it was hard to understand.
i liked how he actually went around answering any question we had about the topic
I think he is very professional and evaluates very fairly.
I like the teaching style of Vern.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Excellent professor. Always available for assistant
One of the 2 best CENT teachers at HCC.
I like to know more about the course
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, very patient and always there to explain things to the students. OFFERS HELP and GUIDES/EXPLAINS the ANSWERS (if the student is literally bagging their head on the table). I have had some professors where all they offer is basically ' look it up on -this- ', where it felt like Google was our teacher.
yeh he really cares about his students
Absolutely~!
I would recommend Vern to other students because he taught us very well

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He is available for help outside of class and tries his best to explain if we don't understand. He would watch us individually at different times to make sure we are doing the right steps and will guide us.
He was always glad to answer questions?
kept us updated with our progress.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
He was very clear with teaching us the calculations and related it to practical lab so that we can understand the concept. He never rushes us if we still need help. He also does a good review on the after we take the exam so that we can understand the mistakes and study them for future exams and lab use.
his course was awesome
gave us practical assignments that we could use in the future
He explained lessons in depth.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
He's a great teacher! Hopefully he can teach another one of our classes!
AWESOME!!!
awesome class
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, very helpful and straight forward.
Definately!!!
yes. learned a lot. had fun.
