Professor Nakasone is an awesome teacher and makes class fun and exciting!
Good teacher and easy to talk to. Very Helpful.
Dale is knowledgeable about the course he teaches. It's good to have a professor who has been in the field of work and gives his students a snapshot of real world experience. He can be unorganized at times, however, his labs are very thorough and applicable.
Very good class. Learned new subjects and techniques.
Good times bu
Very good teacher.
Enjoyed this course. Liked the hands on/in class labs which gave us time to ask questions and also ask peers for assistance (rather than just corresponding through emails or other non face to face means). Also gave students adequate time to complete assignments and was accommodating if we could not attend or complete a lab on time for a valid reason.
Excellent
The course was informative. I would have liked to learn more about apple computers.
AMAZING!!!! Best teacher ever. omg bfff <3
I enjoyed method of teaching. Kept students engaged and got through content in a timely manner. I feel like I actually took a lot out of this class.
Dale Nakasone is an enthusiastic and humorous professor. Labs and classwork are easy to understand and complete. Lectures are clear, despite some of the jokes he sometimes inputs mid-lecture. Hands-on and Online exams are straight-forward. I would recommend this class to other students planning to major in the CENT program. It is not difficult at all to get an "A".
Great class and professor. I learned a lot in the class dealing with ICT Support and had a lot of hands on experience.
I had a great time in this class. I enjoyed learning the many things that was taught. I feel more confident in dealing with computers than I ever felt before. The amount of things I learned was beyond what I expected to learn. This class and teacher was pretty awesome.
I transfered from LCC as an " 'A' student " and had bad experiences with all the professors here at HCC this semester. Professor Nakasone is by far the best professor on campus and throughoughly went over concepts. He is always available for help. I can't wait to come back for CENT280.

Fun class, learned a lot about databases and how to put them to use.
He is a very good teacher he is able to explain things well about the database topics. He shows knowledge and skill as well when working either SQL or Microsoft Access databases. Overall Dale is a really good teacher to have.
It was fun taking dale nakasone class. He clearly explaining into subject but something he go too fast.
Greatest teacher at the college that I have taken so far. The only better proffesor was Dr.Cress or Michael Cress whichever you may know him by.
CENT 280 was a great a class. I wish the semester was longer; we did not have enough time to learn everything we wanted. Would the department be able to provide the materials, software/programs so the students can have access to more hands-on practice. Thank you, Mr. Nakasone for a fun and educational semester!
Good class. Professor made sure we learned all of the content and made sure all of the students were with him every step of the way. It was like a no student left behind deal, he made sure not to speed ahead until he knew everyone knew exactly what they were doing.
The instructor makes his class interesting enough for me to come to his class everyday. He grades his exams and assignments fairly. However, sometimes I feel that I am not learning enough for this class and it's difficult for me to retain what I've learned.
I learned a lot in this class.
I have a lot of learnings and fun from this class and I would recommend this class to other CENT students who has not taken this course yet.
He is a great teacher. He gave us a clear instruction and always make sure his student understand the lesson. He will keep explain until the student understand.
It is a great course! I would recommend it to other students
I don't think this class really teaches much. I mean sure there is a bunch of content I didn't know, but how it is taught it not the best way there is to teach it. When we are given an assignment, we can ask for help when we need it, however, a lot of the time, the instructor basically does the work us.
Course was pretty straight forward. Professor incorporated interesting ways to keep the class on task and engaged during lectures.

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
His knowledge of computers, Windows and Mac...
Mr. Nakasone is very patient; he will explain a concept many times. He is available to students on line and in person.
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
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.
He knew the subject very well.
He is a good listener and he does his best to help his students.
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.
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.
dale was very helpful during chat hours and via email.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
N/A
none
I think there is no suggestion. He is good enough.
He is awesome. I don't have suggestions.
n/a
None
NA
I have no suggestions to improve any aspect of Professor Dale's teaching technique or environment.
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.
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 makes sure to answer the students questions and help them understand the assignments...
If a student was having difficulty with an assignment, he would say, "Call me right now," and he gave his mobile phone number.
He was at online chat every regular time and he answered all our questions.
He always showed up on chat laulima to help the students that had questions or any doubts on an assignment.
Willing to meet up with students on campus or outside of school if homework/questions needed hands on demonstration.
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.
A lot of since we had to interact in the chat room
Listening to the students.
Dale Nakasone demonstrated concern for students by: Clear objectives and procedures Accessible to students outside of class The course was well organized Dale Nakasone knew the subject area Dale Nakasone encouraged students' participation The course material was presented in a clear and effective way Dale Nakasone provided a good atmosphere for learning Dale Nakasone encouraged me to think for myself Dale Nakasone graded tests and assignments fairly Dale Nakasone informed students of their grades on exams and assignments promptly Dale Nakasone treated students fairly.
He notifies his students on their current grades once he is done grading them. Asks us if we have questions about the assignment.
dale is always very helpful during chat hours and is very willing to help students on a face-to-face basis even though this is an online class.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes because he is patient and kind and helpful...
yes
Yes, would recommend because he really wants students to learn.
Yes I strongly recommend him. His class is really helpful and easy to understand and he explains very well.
Yes because you learn so much from his class about word, powerpoint, and excel.
yes, basic class that is very important in any career field.
Yes, I would definitely recommend Dale Nakasone to students, he is a great instructor.
Yes. He helps without making you feel inadequate.
Yes I would because he is fair.
Already have recommended Professor Dale because the learning environment and teaching skills are conducive to success.
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.
yes. he is a great teacher and helps students understand the course materials.
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
I am very glad to have him as my teacher...

13. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
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.
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.
On time and helpfully to fix student problem with his class
Funny, Helpful, always available for questions, patient, knew the material well.
Knew his subject very well and is willing to make time for his students outside of class.
He knows the subject area well.
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.
His willingness to help.
14. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
None that I can think of....
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.
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?
He would stop and help you immediately during class and if you still did not understand, he would meet you after class.
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.
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.
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.
He made time time for chat hours 3 x a week and requires at least one visit from student per week.
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.
Making himself available for meetings on campus besides on line activities.
16. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, because I learned a lot from Professor Dale.
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.
100% because he is one of the best teacher in kcc
Yes, good teacher overall.
Yes, he is passionate about ICS and wants his students to learn about technology because our future is becoming more technology savvy.
Yes, I would recommend Dale as a teacher. He has a very good knowledge of the course content and helps you right away with problems.
Yes. Class is simple enough.
YES! best distance learning class I have ever taken. He is very knowledgable on the subject and is genuinely interested in the success of his students. He goes out of his way to make sure all his students can not only complete the coursework, but also fully understand the material.
yes. He was a good intructor
17. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
Thanks for being a good teacher!
The instructor is very kind, patience, and fun going. His teaching style was very refreshing and comical it made the class very enjoyable.
Enjoyed his class very much
Nice guy and funny
Thank you for always making time for me outside of class to help me with concepts I did not understand. Also grading very fairly :)
Great teacher. I have lost faith in college professors as a whole. They don't teach anything, but only lecture. Dale is a teacher he takes the time and makes the extra effort to teach his students.

18. What are the instructor's major strengths as a teacher?
He's very funny.
Projects to the class, so that everyone can hear. Knows subjects well.
He knew this subject very well
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.
His strenghts were helping every students as best as he can to undersstand the material.
Knows his material.
He is very helpful, nice and funny. He makes class good atomosphere to learn.
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 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.
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.
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.
He knows his content well and sets his goal for every 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.
Responding to emails in a timely manner. Knew subject area well when i needed help on a certain area of the course
knowledge of ics
knows the subject well.
He knows a lot about computers
Really open to questions and spends extra time to explain subject with students.
Teaching and explaining course matters
19. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
He asked if we had any questions and he would help us with our work.
None
I would change the whole tests and MYit Lab because not everyone know the programs well and the Myit labs were difficult to finish.
None.
Nothing.
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.
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.
none really
I wish there will be more relation in class, no just talk in front of class all the time.
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.
No change. The class is good.
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.
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
respond to e-mails quicker.
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.
None
20. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He was always available.
Went around class and helped students that were confused as well as repeating steps when necessary.
Asking us what we need help on and such
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 showed concerns by helping them out when they needed to.
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 went to each student.
As mentioned above.
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.
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.
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.
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 gave us more time if we weren't able to turn in an assignment on time.
emailed and posted announcements
made sure we got assignments in on time
was always reachable by e-mail and also had a office if you need to reach him.
He was willing to meet up with students outside of office hours, and even during spring break
21. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
yes. He's very easy to talk to.
I would recommend Dale, because he helps the class to understand as much as possible, in many different program function.
Yes because he's funny and he helps you out
Yes, I did enjoy his class and his teaching style. Also, I believe it would benefit future students.
Yes i would recommend him. He is a funny guy and a cool guy.
Yes. Good introduction to Windows Office programs.
YES. His class is very fun and the course materials are hands-on.
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! 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.
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.
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. He is a good instructor.
Absolutely. He is a great teacher, with lots of information that is useful to all of us.
yes, fair and objective teacher. Esp for online courses.
Yes.
yes, he is a good teacher
yes, when he responds to the e-mails the answers are very helpful
yes
Yes. Overall the course was not overwhelming.
Yes, excellent teacher
22. What else would you like to say about this instructor?
none
YOu funny!
None.
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.
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.
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 :(
No.
Mr. Nakasone is really nice and helpful. I would recommend him to other students.
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?
The different 'programs' he lets his students try.
knowledge in subject.
Knew the subject very well.
He was available during his office hours/via email. He was proactive with all the tests and assignments. Was very enthusic about the class.
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 checks on us to see if were passing
It is obvious that he knows a lot about the subject and he gave the online students opportunities to do well on their assignments.
the knowledge of the subject
He's really good about getting back to your emails.Good at explaining what needs to be done and when assignments are due.
Showing students procedures perfectly. Teaching kindly in details.
very detailed in the instructions and always available when in need of assistance
17. What changes, if any, do you suggest to the instructor?
No changes.
more specificity in assignment procedures. Also, more instructions for those using a mac program.
The wording on some of the assignments were difficult to understand
None.
n/a
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.
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
No need for changes.

19. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He replied to emails right away.
individualized attention.
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.
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.
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. :)
Allowed resubmission of assignments, pointing out corrections and where to look to in order to resubmit for better grade.
he gave us chances to pass and that im thankful for
He had emailed me a couple times to ask where my assignments were but he seemes a little disorganized as well
he emailed us what has to be done
He gets back to you in a timely manner if you need help with anything orneed to know something.
Vie e-mails, telling students futher information about assignments and comments.
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.
20. Would you recommend this instructor to students? Why or why not?
Yes, because it was a fun class, and he is a good teacher.
