13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He is a good listener and he does his best to help his students.
Engagement with his students and allows us to always ask him any questions through email, phone call and the ICS 100 chat room. Helps his students as much as he can, great teacher = good grades. Very flexible with his students, he would definitely make time for us.
He was really diligent to teach. He cares each one of the students
His knowledge of computers, Windows and Mac...
He is an outstanding teacher. He knows his information well and everytime I needed help on my assignments because I have a Mac and not Windows he knew just how to help me.
Mr. Nakasone is very patient; he will explain a concept many times. He is available to students on line and in person.
He knew the subject very well.
It seems like he knew things about the course. Knows how to communicate to certain students over the chat room, meaning like I could tell which students were his favorites because of the way he responds to them. Very enthusiastically and the students he dislikes he gives off sarcasm.
Straight foward instructions
He listens to our feedback and is fair.
Professor Dale is a fair and encouraging teacher. He is knowledgeable and provides an arena with thought provoking questions to practice complex thinking skills and individualism. He appreciates each student as an individual and understands the complexities of our lives. Professor Dale's teaching style and curriculm, although there are deadlines offers flexibility and a nurturing environment so that his students want to be successful.
dale was very helpful during chat hours and via email.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None
I think there is no suggestion. He is good enough.
N/A
He is awesome. I don't have suggestions.
none
n/a
I suggest that Dale would have made the chat room credit be not mandatory for the beginning of the semester. Like have students be able to chat with the whole class rather than just him because it would be more convenient. Also I think it would be better if Dale could make the re take on assignment be allowed to resubmit the assignments by the end of the semester. I mean the policy should be the same but just have students have the option to be allowed to resubmit the assignment by the end of the semester. It would also be better if he could extend chat room hours instead of just 3 hours every week.
NA
I have no suggestions to improve any aspect of Professor Dale's teaching technique or environment.
i would like to receive my grades on assignments in a more timely manner so i am able to better calculate my overall grade.
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He emailed you if you missed anything in the class, he also encouraged you to ask questions during chat time which was three times a week.
He was at online chat every regular time and he answered all our questions.
He makes sure to answer the students questions and help them understand the assignments...
He always showed up on chat laulima to help the students that had questions or any doubts on an assignment.
If a student was having difficulty with an assignment, he would say, "Call me right now," and he gave his mobile phone number.
Willing to meet up with students on campus or outside of school if homework/questions needed hands on demonstration.
He notifies his students on their current grades once he is done grading them. Asks us if we have questions about the assignment.
A lot of since we had to interact in the chat room
Listening to the students.

Yes I strongly recommend him. His class is really helpful and easy to understand and he explains very well.
Yes because he is patient and kind and helpful...

yes, basic class that is very important in any career field.
If students are good at working independently, like really working independently then yes I would recommend students to take Dale. Because Dale doesn't really go out of his way to help students succeed in his class, it's more of a self taught class.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Sense of humor and patience with students that had different level of skill and understanding of computers and software.
Keeps students engaged throughout
As a teacher, Dale is excellent at explaining the subject specifically to whatever the next test covers and connecting the topics. He is also fantastic at communicating with students either right after classes or through email or Laulima, replying almost immediately. Both of these two strengths played well during the summer because the time limit to learn everything most students learn during the spring or fall semester was shortened drastically.
Professor Dale was very attentive, especially to those students that did not speak english as a 1st language or had not used the computer often.
On time and helpfully to fix student problem with his class
Funny, Helpful, always available for questions, patient, knew the material well.
His willingness to help.
He knows the subject area well.
Knew his subject very well and is willing to make time for his students outside of class.
Straightforward
Dale takes a genuine interest in all of his students, he takes time to get to know everyone and is always willing to help any student in need.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes and to keep up with the great teaching and look forward to maybe taking a class with this instructor again.
none
Dale seemed like a flawless teacher. I would make no improvement suggestions.
None that I can think of....
Please a little bit slow
None that I can think of, class was done well.
N/A
Some assignments, such as doing the Excel 2010 training twice per chapter, seemed unnecessary.
none
15. How did the instructor show concern for students?
The instructor made himself available after class for students who were having difficulty with the class and also emailed we were absent what we needed to do if the assignment was not clear online or in the syllabus.
He actively sought out students who needed assistance and would stay after class to help.
Dale was outstanding at showing concern for all of his students. Everyday he stayed after class in the computer room next-door and answered any of their questions. He gave several students (with or with out DSSO needs,) extensions on their test times because they showed their struggle or asked explaining their misunderstanding.
He would stop and help you immediately during class and if you still did not understand, he would meet you after class.
After he finish class he still going to the computer lab and waiting for student asking any problem with any problem
Always available for questions, showed a considerable amount of patience for repetitive questioning and mistakes.
Making himself available for meetings on campus besides on line activities.
He made time time for chat hours 3 x a week and requires at least one visit from student per week.
Continuously sent us reminders to complete our assignments and exams by the due date and made it mandatory to chat with him in the chatroom weekly in order to make sure we were doing well in the course.
Chat rooms.
I was having problems accessing certain tests online and he took the time to meet with me to go over it with me. I work fulltime and often struggle making it to office hours and he worked around my schedule to make a special time to meet. He even had me bring in my laptop so he could take look at it and try to fix it for me so that I would be able to access the tests like I was supposed to be able to. He makes all the students attend a chatroom once a week so that he will be able to communicate with us and help us work out difficulties.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes because his class is very useful and his teaching style is very good. His patience and acceptance of students from all difference cultures and language barriers. As a korean-american student from out-of-state and veteran he made me very welcome and helped with me with class assignments. I also saw the instructor very patience with students whom didn't speak english very well or grasp the lectures he presented and made sure the students understood what was being explained.
Yes, hey is a very good teacher.
I would definitely recommend Dale Nakasone to other students. He explains the topic and makes sure that each student understands it with clarity.

18. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
Dale Nakasone's teaching style is one of his major strengths as a teacher. He would reiterate on a subject if students were not able to understand the subject and/or walk us thought it.
He's very funny.
Knows his material.
He is very helpful, nice and funny. He makes class good atomosphere to learn.
His strenghts were helping every students as best as he can to undersstand the material.
Projects to the class, so that everyone can hear. Knows subjects well.
he is smart, outgoing and funny. he knows his stuff
Very friendly teacher. Easy to talk with, no need to hesitate to ask questions.
Mr. Nakasone is one of those instructor's who knows how to bring enthusiasm in the class with the material we are learning. He is very patient with a student even if the student is clueless he will not give up on that student until he/she understands. He is always offering help to students and is very affable and not aloof like other professors.
He knew this subject very well
Dale was a very good speaker. He spoke loud and clear. He showed us every step he was teaching us on his projector. He was funny.
Very knowledgeable in the ICS field, as others I'm sure. Speaks loud and clearly. Makes random jokes sometimes.
ability to present information in a clear and consise manner, willing to help students that don't fall behind during the lecture
He is nice, friendly, and helpful.
Very helpful and friendly.
He is funny, kind and good.
He knows his content well and sets his goal for every class!
he would tell us step-by-step on how to do certain things on word, powerpoint, excel, and access. he was very patient with the class.
His intellect. He's very smart, and knows his material well, which helps all of us fully understand what it is we are learning from the class.
Teaching and explaining course matters
knows the subject well.
Responding to emails in a timely manner. Knew subject area well when i needed help on a certain area of the course
He knows a lot about computers
knowledge of ics
Really open to questions and spends extra time to explain subject with students.
19. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None
None.
Nothing.
I would change the whole tests and MYit Lab because not everyone know the programs well and the Myit labs were difficult to finish.
maybe the powerpoint book for the class doesn't help me on powerpoint exam
When I was taking some of the exams like power point or access it seemed like a lot of the material in the book was not covered and was really difficult to find when taking an exam.
He asked if we had any questions and he would help us with our work.
Please make the content more friendly towards foreign students. The English you use is difficult to follow unless you are a native speaker. Also, it would be nice if we could to the MyItLab in class? I felt overwhelmed with all of the tests, they took an hour for each, rather than the expected 20-30 minutes.
Try to have more time doing ITLabs, or maybe a practice test or two on each section in class. I know it's hard because of the schedule and the syllabus having us doing something every day, but it will help the students who're struggling.
none really
I wish there will be more relation in class, no just talk in front of class all the time.
No change. The class is good.
instead of making all the tests due at the end of the semesters, he should put due dates on the test after we are done working on the material. students like me tend to wait till late minute to take the test and feel all bombarded because i didn't take it right away.
Less assignments haha. It was very overwhelming taking so many quizzes on laulima and on the ics program, not to mention allof the assignments the course required too.
None
respond to e-mails quicker.
putting up a slide show of yourself :D OH and let students know about what technology they are working with because I had to come to school more often then expected to use the IT lab units. My mac wasn't able to do the IT LAB online.
none
none
Alot of the microsoft exam questions were based on insignificant facts (e.g. what are the background panes of a 3-D chart called?). Would prefer more skills tests and assignments than the exams.
20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Mr. Nakasone would make an announcement before or during the class if there was a quiz or exam will be coming up. Also, he would discuss on certain areas of the subject before the exam to make sure the students would understand because it might be on the exam.
He was always available.
By going over the tests and assignments with us.
He always helps us in class and outside of class. He always cares all students are catching up.
He showed concerns by helping them out when they needed to.
Went around class and helped students that were confused as well as repeating steps when necessary.
he went to each student.
As mentioned above.
Asking us what we need help on and such
He would address our questions, and walk over to our computer if we were having trouble. He gave us his number and said we could email, call, or even text him with good questions.
During class on In Class Assignments we'd be doing, he would walk around helping anyone who raised their hands. He was also available outside of class via email.
allowed students to resubmit assignments, gave great advice and constructive criticism on our assignments
He is nice to students. He was willing to help students after class, and give studnets good suggestions.
he is accessible to us.
As long as a student asks him during the class, he will answer immediately. If the student asks him when he is teaching us how to do the in class assignment, he will do it again til the student can catch up.
he would ask if everyone is okay and on the same page as him. if not he'll come by your computer and help you catch up.
He gave us more time if we weren't able to turn in an assignment on time.
He was willing to meet up with students outside of office hours, and even during spring break
was always reachable by e-mail and also had a office if you need to reach him.
emailed and posted announcements
made sure we got assignments in on time
21. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, I did enjoy his class and his teaching style. Also, I believe it would benefit future students.
yes. He's very easy to talk to.
Yes. Good introduction to Windows Office programs.
YES. His class is very fun and the course materials are hands-on.
Yes i would recommend him. He is a funny guy and a cool guy.
I would recommend Dale, because he helps the class to understand as much as possible, in many different program function.
yes. he is incredible
Yes, specially for international student.
I strongly recommend Dale to anyone who wants to learn how to be proficient in computer software.
Yes because he's funny and he helps you out
I would to students who understand and speak good English. But it's way too hard for foreign students. Computers are a whole new language in themselves, but to top it off with a professor who lectures the whole time, might be a lost cause for many of our foreign students. Dale needs to figure out a way to reach out and create a better/easier understanding of his material to all of his students.
Yes. If they want to learn the basics of Microsoft Office, then Dale is good to take. However, if they want to keep their skills learned in class they would have to use it often, otherwise simple things will be forgotten.
yes, i had a great time in class
Yes, very nice professor and will be there to help you if you need any.
yes. his class is interesting, and we can learn many things from this class.
Yes. He is a good instructor.
Yes! He's a very good teacher and knows his subject area real well. all the due dates for tests and assignments are clearly stated on the laulima website.
Absolutely. He is a great teacher, with lots of information that is useful to all of us.
Yes, excellent teacher
yes, when he responds to the e-mails the answers are very helpful
yes, fair and objective teacher. Esp for online courses.
yes
Yes.
yes, he is a good teacher
Yes. Overall the course was not overwhelming.
22. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
none
None.
YOu funny!
great guy!
Thank you so much for your kindness, patience, and help. Please continue to maintain your dedication to students in many semesters to come.
He is kind and tries hard. He knows his material very well. The only thing is some of the stuff we'd learn in class was not always covered in the tests. I used the book to help me with my exam a lot. But I suppose that is okay as well.
Wish there were more ICS courses offered at KCC!
Nice to join his class.
He is a friendly person, that makes this class very enjoyable.
Good job and hope to have you in future classes. I did enjoy doing some projects early before they were due. Thanks!

He is nice :)
Mr. Nakasone is very good teacher, but I'd like to say some comments about the course. There sometimes have problems to see all words correctly for Office exams on Laulima, and there sometimes have wrong answers, too. I hope they are improved perfectly. I hope there are enough time to cover Technology in Action textbook, too. In class, he teaches Office, so it was hard to do all exams, which we had to do by our own.
I recognize this course is as more practical in academic way. Myitlab is helping how to use MS office, however, I feel that Laulima exam for those MS office doesn't help much. it's just wasting time. I don't think we don't need to know line name or function name. We want to learn how to use, functions, easy way to use.
Thank you for a great experience in ICS I never would have understood Windows 7 with out your class.
Daniel has some mad Powerpoint skills :(
thanks for a great semester!
This course is a Windows centered course. Ok, Office is fine, but Office also works on the Macintosh. Also, MyITLab only supports IE which is a poor choice. This should be communicated to Pearson or another course should be selected where you can use other mainstream browsers.
Mr. Nakasone is really nice and helpful. I would recommend him to other students.
No.
Thank you so much!
If Dale Nakasone taught another class I was required to take, I would sign up right away!

16. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
knowledge in subject.
The different 'programs' he lets his students try.
Knew the subject very well.
good
Mr. Nakasone had lots of background knowledge of the subject matter we were studying. He was an effective communicator, and had a fun sense of humor as well! This made the class really enjoyable :). He was punctual, and always answered any questions we had.Many teachers dont respond to students (ive had my share of them -_-) and it was frustrating because you want to try your best, but if they aren't there to guide you or answer your questions, it makes it difficult. Mr. Nakasone was great about this, and I never encountered this problem with him.
He was available during his office hours/via email. He was proactive with all the tests and assignments. Was very enthusic about the class.
It is obvious that he knows a lot about the subject and he gave the online students opportunities to do well on their assignments.
he checks on us to see if were passing
He's really good about getting back to your emails.Good at explaining what needs to be done and when assignments are due.
the knowledge of the subject
very detailed in the instructions and always available when in need of assistance
Showing students procedures perfectly. Teaching kindly in details.

18. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
The wording on some of the assignments were difficult to understand
more specificity in assignment procedures. Also, more instructions for those using a mac program.
No changes.
None.
none
I don't suggest any changes aside from maybe being a bit more explanatory when it comes to the assignments. Sometimes it can get a little confusing because i took what he said so literal, and come to find out, it meant a completely different thing. hehe~ but that's about it.
n/a
None
The instructions for the assignments were very confusing and it was difficult to sometimes interpret what he meant. I think it is because he knows about the subject so some things are more obvious to him but for those that know not much it was a little confusing.
none
none
none
nothing.
No need for changes.
19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
individualized attention.
He replied to emails right away.
Allowed resubmission of assignments, pointing out corrections and where to look to in order to resubmit for better grade.
He would e-mail them and let them know of their current standing. He would help them out if they needed help. If a student e-mailed him, asking him tons of questions, he would call them personally and answer their questions via phone call. He was very helpful! And his instructions for assignments were very clear.
maybe
He answered all of our questions, and he always took the time to email us if we were slacking to see if we were okay.I remember i missed a few of my assignments, and I was so stressed with work and financial issues, and i opened up my inbox one day and he asked if i was okay. that meant the whole world to me, just that simple gesture, to see that wow, he actually cares about his students. He's a great teacher, but also a great person. :)
He did check ups wiht ones that were falling behind, he did a good job notifying students about what to do and when to do it by.
He had emailed me a couple times to ask where my assignments were but he seemes a little disorganized as well
he gave us chances to pass and that im thankful for
He gets back to you in a timely manner if you need help with anything orneed to know something.
he emailed us what has to be done
gave us the chance to revise and resubmit assignments and commented on what changes needs to be done. he also always reminded of the upcoming assignments due.
Vie e-mails, telling students futher information about assignments and comments.
20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, because he taught us many points of Microsoft Office.

21. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
n/a
I really appreciated how he let those who already knew stuff about computers just take the tests, and skip the assignments. That was thinking about the whole class.
thanks!
Nice, helpful, knowledgeable.
i dunno
