22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He would let us know when he has time off so that us as students can come for tutoring.
He would help students outside of his office hours and answer email very quickly in regards for help on the materials.
Any help that the student asks for, he'll help them.
Always wants students to ask questions and to do good work.
He shows concern by offering tutoring every Friday and makes sure he helps the students who don't understand.
He emails back when you need help
Mr.takeya is always willing to anything he can to help students learn. He also provides tutoring every Friday. He is always encouraging us to email or inform him if we are in need of assistance.
He allows you to ask questions and when you do he breaks down the question so yo full understand it. also provides tutoring on fridays
tell students to come for tutoring
He really does care about us and goes above and beyond
He always asked us if we had any questions after every explanation. He also asked us at one point how we wanted him to teach the class to help us improve.
Mr. Takeya was available for consultation at anytime he was not helping someone else.
Mr. Takeya always tries and helps you with you homework or class work. If you need extra help he has torturing.
He makes time for students by having a tutorial day on his free time. He encourages students to contact him in any way for questions his students might have.
Mr. Takeya always has a genuine concern for his students. A good example of this was when we took our mid term. Tons of people didn't do so well, to compensate for the lack of passing grades he lowered the total score slightly so everyone was bumped up by a few points. This along with walking around the class during problems given to us, and helping us find the answer if we're struggling. He helps out everyone individually in, and out of class.
Mr Takeya gave numerous opportunities to students falling behind that have missed assignments and gave a fair recovery time frame to catch up and turn in assignments.
spends time with everyone
He is not to strict on the grading policy, and also he provides enough time for all the students to complete work and assignments.
Even though I would turn in late work, he would still give me credit.
he always takes time to help
Mr.Takeya provides as much information as possible to do well in his course. After class tutoring is available, and Mr.Takeya provides his personal time for students who lack ability to learn the subject at hand.
Mr. Takeya gives students plenty of chances to raise their grades.
He was always available through email, phone call or study halls.
makes time for us to come in for help
He kept us committed throughout the semester. By making announcements and keeping us prompt and alert about whats coming up.
By providing many tutorial hours outside of class in order to help out.
He would have tutoring every Friday for the students who needs help.
He asks if we understand the material. If not, he always tries to go over it with us and offers tutoring.
By being incredibly honest with us about what we can expect if we enter construction career fields. By encouraging us to work hard in classes and get the knowledge we really need because the various fields are very competitive. He likes saying "every year there's a couple hundred more kids coming outta school trying to take your job.
He offers tutoring out of class schedules.
He always makes sure that all students understands, and is always available outside of class for tutuoring.
Yes
By using his own time to help us with tutoring and walking us through it clearly.
Fair. He looks each one of us how we doing on certain problems.
He give us days to make up homework that we missed. So that helped me get back on track.
explain life experiences to students, so they know what it is expected of them on job sites in their future career.
He reminds you to do hw and tests and makes sure you turn them in
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
i like how he always explained thoroughly and made sure everyone understood before moving on.
I like his class because he made the class entertaining. I didn't like the book that we used because didn't have enought practice to understand the materials that we needed to know. I think the class should be thought organize lecture. I do think this class should have a prerequisite in geometry, mechanical drawing, and little back round in constrution.
He'll help me on homework, but the homework I did for tutoring still had a lot of wrong questions. He won't help completely. He'll expect the student to find the answer anyway.
I really like his ability to connect with the students, although the atmosphere from our class was a little silent at times which altered my learning ability. The only thing i disliked was i felt a lack of understanding when dealing with blue print equations. Although everyone learns differently.
I liked how he knew so much of this course because he used to do it for a career before.
Like the flexibility disliked the book
Mr.takeya mixed lessons up with videos, lecture, in class work.
what i like is he knows his subject that he is teaching, gives real life examples. pretty much his prepared to teach, not learning how to teach
overall, I like the way he taught us as students.
Really liked making the model house
The fact that he was very experienced in the field and because of that he was able to tell us more in depth about the course. My only dislike was when he told us about our midterm the class before the actual date, leaving us only one day to fully study.
I especially like Mr. Takeya for his experience in construction contracting and the real world lessons he shared with his class.
I like that he know what he's talking about. He has over like 20 something years of hands on work in this field I like how he's just straight about about it.
He connected with his students personally. He gave personal experiences and encouraged his students to do their best.
I really enjoyed Mr. Takeya's sense of humor. Always cracking jokes to make the mood and atmosphere in the room seem much more friendly. On the first day I was intimidated from the moment I entered the class, but once I left I felt comfortable and welcome there. Not only does he have a sense of humor, he knows when to be serious which is also something I love about the way he teaches this course.
There were a lot of real world experiences Mr. Takeya first handedly experienced and shared them relative to the course material. This gave, what I felt, a better perspective of how the course relates to the real world rather than straight text book (which sometimes can be hardly adaptable to work).
i liked that the class is geared to hawaiis conditions
I liked how explained everything in detail and made everything easy to understand. And gave us good examples.
I liked how he was always happy, but I disliked all the work we had to do.
Everything in the course was to be expected. The course is not hard, yet its also not that easy. For those who are willing to learn the pace of the course was about right.
Mr. Takeya explains things well and makes the course work interesting.
Disliked the length of the class. Maybe 20 minutes more to answer questions and concerns.
nothing that i can think of
I like how he's always there to help us. He's there through class, after class, and even emails. It seems like he has enough time to help the whole world. Great Guy!
A few weeks, his presentations were behind of what chapter we were working on for the week.
The testing and homework deadlines were clear. All videos were helpful to learn visually. Fun overall class, get to build a model. Instructor is knowledgeable and helpful. Dislike: At some points the work load gets heavy and easy to fall behind in.
He would make the subject really interesting and he would share some of his past experience.
I liked how Mr. Takeya kept things interesting. He's genuinely interested in the subject matter and explained things clearly.
The course was fairly straightforward but he always took the time to answer all questions either during or after class.
I dislike the load of work that was given out, we had a test every week (which was fairly easy) but it still sucked to do it. the house project should be excluded from the class because it takes a lot of time and money.
I like how he explains the material step by step.
He seems to genuinely want all of his stidents to suceed.
He is very knowledgeable.
His interest in the subject.
He showed us the real world that's going on after learning the course. His experience through the years and using legitimate examples. He gave us tips here and there. The thing I dislike about him is that he'll gave you the answer to your question but since some of us kinda slow with everything that's going on the course, you kinda have to figure out what he means to your answer. Overall I like how direct he is to us and I think that is a good preparation for the real thing.
I liked the videos that he showed us, it help me understand more about the subject.
(Likes)Straight up, no beating around the bush. It's what most of these young students need to learn and know if they haven't been on the construction work force before.

24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
He taught this course really well and made class very exciting. I learned something new everyday.
I think making the model house is very usefull tool to see if you understand the material that we are learning in the class.
Sorry, this class is not that easy.
A very fun and good teacher.
Overall, it was a good learning experience, I learned quite a lot, from reading plans to understanding everything in between.
The new book is junk. Idont like it
very simple, just do the work, show you are trying, this class ain't hard to past even if you dont no whats going on just try and ask for help.
Keep it up even if you have lots of schedules not relating to your class.
He is a great teacher and def cares about his students, and is readily available for help.
Mr. T is one of the best professors I have ever had; I say that because of his experience level not just with the course, but with us students. How he always made class fun for us to learn and not make it just another ordinary lecture.
I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wishes to understand blueprint reading/reading plans.
Very good teacher. I've a lot from this class.
This course was very challenging, I learned a lot and enjoyed the hands on activities.
Awesome teacher, knows subject extremely well. Puts examples into real life applications(doghouse supply take off list for example). Helps out students a lot, often stays after class if needed from one of his students. Along with that, great tutoring hours. I myself have never gone in, however from what I hear its perfect, just one on one with the student and instructor, the way it should be, especially whilst learning something as complicated as blue print reading.
The homework aspect of the course was rather troublesome because it seemed like you can only answer certain problems with real world experience. Mr. Takeya did exclude them from grading, but it was a rather frustrating experience not being able to find the answer to some problems in the book.
very interesting
Was a good course, and I've learned a lot.
He's a very good teacher.
Definitely not a waste of time. Learned a lot on a profession crammed into one semester.
Mr. Takeya is a cool dude :)
Always be prepared. The way you approach this class is how he will perceive your character and motivation. Be on time, have your work ready and don't be afraid to ask questions.
its intersting
Really fun and interesting class. A lot to learn about the construction field.
A lot of homework sometimes
It was a fun experience, while i learned a lot! I struggled in the beginning and was able to grasp concepts faster than i expected. Instructor is willing to help student through as long as they commit time and effort too.
He is very helpful and cool.
Mr. Takeya was always available for questions. If we sent him an email, he was quick to reply.
It's refreshing dealing with someone so honest. He encourages his students to push themselves. Because of him I am trying to get into a summer engineering program (that he told me about and really encouraged me to enroll), and possibly switching majors from a two year welding applied science degree to a four year mechanical engineering degree.
its a good course.
He is a blunt person.
Best Teacher I have ever had.
He is smart.
It makes you think outside of the box.
His a good mentor/professor.
I like that he used powerpoint to go over the chapters, it gives us a better understanding to what's going on.
n/a
He is passionate about this course and you can see it in the way he delivers the class materials and any other info that we may need. He also makes class enjoyable.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes i highly recommend it. I learned something new everyday in his class.
I would recommend his course if you want accelerated class.
Probably not. For people who want to get into the Carpentry or the Electrical business, I guess I could recommend them if they really want to get into that major. Though I still might not recommend them too much, since you have to pay money to do a project at one point. So I would recommend for people who really REALLY want to get into the major for that. But for the people who are otherwise not that interested or whatever it might be, I probably won't recommend this him to other students.
Yes i would, Norman Takeya has a very flexible teaching style that is great for students. Although i'd say to ask a lot of questions, otherwise the whole class and yourself might be stuck in a rut.
Yes, only for anything dealing with construction.
Yes to pass and learn blueprinting. He knows his shiit
Yes, very good class to take. Mr.Takeya cares about his students and wants to help his students.
yes very intresting on how complicated a plan is, but i enjoyed this class a lot might actually take it again when im almost done with my major just to fresh up the brain
Yes, because his really nice, funny, and understandable.
I would definitely recommend him because his teachings are very straight forward and you learn a lot from his class.
I would recommend Mr. Takeya to other students for the excellent instruction and knowledge value he brings to the subject he teaches.
Yes great teacher.
Yes, because he offers tons of experience. He is good at what he does.
Hell yeah!! This class was awesome! Honestly, I wish it didn't end. Awesome teacher, boring subject, bright side is however, that Mr. Takeya makes it all better with his sense of humor, relating class work to real life situations and so on.
Yes. Fair teacher, highly knowledgeable, know that you're learning from someone who is in the field rather than one who just studied it.
yes required course
Yes, I would recommend him to other students. because he is easy to understand and not really that strict on teaching.
Yes, only for students trying to get into the construction trades.
yes, because he know what he is teaching
Yes, A must learn class in order to relate to professional surrounding jobs and careers.
Yes, see number 24
Highly recommended because his experience is unmeasurable. He gives real life advice and experience to the subject being taught. He teaches you stuff not in the text books and what employers will expect of us when we enter the workforce.
if they need to take blue printing
Of course! Its really important to take this class. Students will miss out if they don't. So much to experience!
Yes. He is very knowlegable and know exactly what he is talking about. He has a lot of background experience in the construction trade areas.
Yes, I would recommend Mr. Takeya for anyone entering any trade that needs BLPR 22 or interested in the subject. I would do this because I think my peers would enjoy his class as well and they will learn the necessary content for sure.
Yes, because you learn a lot from him and he will always be there for his student whenever.
Yes, because he knows his material and gives examples from his own experiences. He keeps things interested and is always available for help when we need it.
Yes, he seems to really care about helping his students do well so they get get good jobs.
no because it takes up to much of your time.
Yes, beause he is fair with his grading and homework, as well as his quizes.
Yes. He has a lot of knowledge and experience in this subject.
Yes because he is a good teacher
Yes, because he knows what he is talking about.
Yes. You learn a lot of stuff about him and the outside world. My only recommendation is keep on his level at all times. He'll give you terms that you should be familiar with by then.
Yes, because i learned a lot this semester.
yes
Yes. They'll learn a lot and enjoy doing so.
26. Other comments:
No. I believe everything I have to say is already said above.
what up!
Fun class. Do the work. Pay attention
Thank you.
Five thumbs up!
AWESOME
Probably one of the best teachers I've come across in my life. Down to earth, cool guy yet serious at times. Mr. Norman Takeya is da man.
N/A
Mister T is a great instructor. I trusted his words because he backed it up with experience. He is straight forward and to the point. I was very happy to have him instruct me and happy to know that he is always available when I need a talk or advice.
nothing
Very good class. variations of ways to learn: hands on, quizzes, plans, homework, supply lists, videos. Helpful instructor that is passionate and knowledgeable in the field.
I love his class.
Overall he is a great teacher.
Learned a lot.
No.....
Mandatory to take the technical math and blueprint at the same time. Have more of an understanding of the mathematical problems in blueprint reading and easier if taking the technical math within the same semester. HHC board members

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Mr. Takeya took extra effort to respond to emails.
He is very encouraging and is always available if you need help.
He shows it by telling students to come to his office if students have problems with this course or he just ask students if they have a problem.
He takes the time out to always check his email and responds very quickly to resolve unexpected circumstances. He shows concern by listening and resolving with kind words.
His door is always open and he always reminds students that if they need help to come and see him.
Sets up help for student having difficulty in courses that he is not instructing.
I have never met an instructor that was more concerned with finding students employment than Mr. Takeya.
By checking students' grades twice and heading to other CMGT classes to see how the CMGT students are doing. He also occasionally wakes up around 2 a.m. to check his e-mail if students send messages or files to him.
He showed concerned by emailing him and/or constant remindeders.
He would always posts reminders when upcoming deadlines were coming up and made sure that he reminded us what type of career we were in to keep us motivated.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I especially like the leading questions he asked for discussion.
I love how open and honest Mr. Takeya is, he is really trying to prepare you to become a productive part of the workforce.
He gives good comments and respect all students.
He was able to provide good examples that allows to see a wider perspective overview electronically.
Very easy to learn material and he knows how to get the information across.
Norman Takeyas experience in construction management greatly reflects on this course.
Mr. Takeya is demanding, which is to be expected of great instructors.
He's available at the office or on his home-computer at any time when student help is needed and he encouraged students to do so.
I liked how it was on our own pace.
He is very consistent and on time with all his assignments, grading and posting of his discussions.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
If you want a broad introduction to construction management take Mr. Takeya's CMGT100 class.
He is very hands on, which I think can be difficult when teaching an online class. It has been a great experience for me. It is obvious that he loves his job, and it's just great to be around a teacher who loves teaching, it really makes all the difference.
He is a very good teacher.
He's a cool guy online and when I met him he is very humble.
Lots of information.
Norman Takeya is an outstanding instructor, he is very knowledgable about the course he instructs, Construction Management.
Mr. Takeya is deeply committed to education. He is a great instructor because he has many years of experience within the field that he teaches.
Good Job Mr.T :)
GREAT COURCE MR.T!
It is a good course to take to see if CMGT is for you, its a good eye opener and will give students a good idea of what is in the construction management industry.

I could do the work from the comfort of my home.
The fact that the hours are flexible.
I like to study at home and at my own pace.

The initial learning curve to use Laulima.
It was a good experience, but if I had to choose it would be navigating the laulima website.
How to work the online from the beginning.
My learning experience was more than what expected and very comfortable, compared to other local and mainland online/campus courses.
Nothing.
This was my first online course and it was a very good experience.
I think the Discussion Group requirement is not utilized correctly by the students: they just do the bare minimum.
Nothing much.
Pacing
getting logged off every 5-10 minutes. Forcing me to type most of my reflection papers in word instead of just typing it straight in Laulima.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He always reminds students about the deadline to turn everything in on time. He show his behavior when he talked to students and listen and understand what problem students have in class.
he gave a second chance in the begining of the semester for people who missed the assignments.
He would always reassure us to ask questions if we needed help and always responded with helpful answers. He also encouraged us as the class progressed to stay focused and that we're almost finished.
Norman Takeya made an effort to participate in the class discussions and always posted insightful or positive comments.
Mr. Takeya kept in contact with all of his students, especially the ones that disappear for a couple weeks of class. He makes himself very available to questions and has been known to respond within a day.
He would send myself and the rest of my classmates emails to update us of how we are doing and to help motivate us.
he constantly sends us messages reminding us of the work needed to be done and also encourages us to do it
constant announcements to remind us of what is to come. good feedback from assignments.
He tells the students to drop by his office if students does not understand the material or has problems.
Mr. Takeya shows concerns for his students by always sending kind reminders about deadlines and to never be afraid to ask questions.
sends encourage notes
Mr. Takeya have to make sure all students are joining or participating the online group discussion.
Communicated with us when we didnt do our work
always on the students by keeping them updated with anything.
Mr. T always has reminders sent out. The best way to communicate with him is through email or in person! Not that many teachers really check their emails so it's great to have a teacher whose actively on it!
He recommends students to stop by his office when they need help.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I really like Mr. T about his fairly. He treats students same as others. If students have some things misunderstanding, he always give students a chance to do it again.
like: straight foward dislike: not much
He chose a great textbook. This book is very easy to understand and explained ideas very well. I really enjoyed reading every chapter.
Most of the teaching was done through the textbook. Nothing's wrong with that, but I felt there was no student-to-professor connection that most students have with the teachers that teach.
One thing I liked about this class is Mr. Takeya's enthusiasm. Here's a guy who knows his stuff and simply enjoys his job. It's hard to find professors like him who are easy to understand and can make learning interesting. The other thing I liked about Mr. Takeya's methods was how he'd get us students to think. Each week we'd discuss a new topic, so every week Mr. T would come up with a question relevant to what we happened to be learning. The fun part was finding the answer which sometimes wasn't the easiest, but it really made us think to get a better idea on what we were reading.
I liked how he would motivate us to participate in online discussions and how he would ask us questions about each chapter to ensure we are grasping the topics.
i liked the freedom he allowed in the course discussions to really ask questions and learn from each other
the assignments forced me to read the book which was actually one of the better books i have read.
He makes good comments.
I wanted to complete the week's assignments ASAP but I had to wait until the end of the week to reply to discussions. Students should do the work in a more timely manner.
I really liked that he makes homework deadlines fair, and clearly explains everything we need to do for this class.
I no like only having Mon-Sat to do work. I do my work on Sundays.
No comments
I like how he has a system with running his online courses. The book was also a great learning material.
He makes it very interesting.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
The class is helpful. It helps us know everything about the environment and how systems inside house work. Also, it helps us know how to protect the environment, and clean the house to keep it clean and safety.
I wouldn't hesitate on taking another class from him.
IS 106 is a very interesting course, and it forces students who haven't taken an online course before, to discipline themselves to keep up with the assignments.
Mr. T is an awesome professor and this course was actually very exciting for me. Although this course was a requirement for my major, I'm really glad that it was because I never would've known how interesting building could be. I'm inspired by this and I do hope that after I graduate I will be able to put into practice all of the things I learned from this class because the environment would definitely appreciate it and I look forward to designing green buildings.
I enjoyed having him as a teacher during this course and would like to have him as my teacher in any of my future courses.
very informative course
very, very satisfying. learned a lot.
Learned a lot on the subject because their is a writing assignment that students must do to see if we read the book.
There was not enough material on LEED certifications nor how a building in Hawaii will meet a LEED standard for Hawaii's environment. Example, we don't have to insulate a foundation or crawl space in Hawaii but what measures should be taken to receive a LEED rating for foundations?
He is a great teacher!
good online
This course should be worth more than 1 credit!
This course is real helpful with my major.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Mr. T is a great teacher, he is nice and treat others are same. Be respectful to him and he will show his behavior back.
yes, simple easy course
Yes, he's a great teacher that encourages learning and always offers help. His classes are straight forward and easy to understand.
I would recommend Norman Takeya to other students if they are motivated enough to set a routine schedule for the course to pass. It's fairly easy to slip and let grades drop especially in an online course.
Always. I would recommend students to take classes from Mr. Takeya because he's a great teacher.
Yes i would strongly recommend having him as a teacher. Taking an online course can be difficult if you are not disciplined, so he does a great job of keeping his studends up to date on our weekly tasks and keeping us motivated to do well.
yes because of the set-up of the class is well balanced
strongly recommend mr. T. more real life subject matter than most teachers. the assignments forced us to have a "green" sense of mind which will ultimately benefit us. he also made the class interesting enough that i actually looked forward to the next topic to see his point of view.
Yes I would recommend this teacher to other students because he is fair, any problems you have he'll understand, and he pushes you to do work.
Yes, if the purpose of the course was to introduce people to the basic concepts of sustainable construction.
N/A
yes easy to understand
I would recommend Mr. T to other students interested in this major! Great teaching ethics and personality to go with it.
Yes, because he know his material and cares a lot about the students' progress in the course.

33. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I like to make things from recycle materials.
Waiting for responses in class discussions and emails were about the only things that I liked the least. It's a universal feeling.
It becomes difficult to match names with faces when in an online course.
I don't care for those absolute deadlines because I'm not the greatest at turning things in on-time, but that's just how it is for online courses. I'm just glad that for this course, I didn't have laulima go crazy and kick me offline repeatedly due to the high usage of the site.
I didn't like how at times there would be errors for the online quizzes. For example, there were times when i would answer the question correctly, but it would mark it incorrect, affecting my score.
... the reading.. but i dont like to read so that is my fault... but the course overall is good
laulima shuts down at 3am for at least an hour
I think it is better to have in class and not online class. I don't really like online classes.

I learned a lot during this course about how to live a more energy efficient life and how to help ensure a sustainable future.
great class! learned so many interesting things. many of the other students had really good ideas and views for all the different topics. best of all, most things learned will benefit us in the future. every major should require this class.
I enjoyed my first online class! It was a great experience.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Norman Takeya's concern for all of his blueprint students is strong. He provides help in and out of class. He explains lessons in a way everyone on the class can understand. I wasn't sure about the other students, but in my books he is a keeper for the Honolulu Community College.
Teacher always offers personal tuturing and keeps students informed of thier progress.
Helped when didn't understand
He'd ask students if we have a hard time on something.
Sometimes
Asked questions if everyone understood. As a good teacher should be
He shows that he likes to help students who take the time to come in for help, and encourages that.
Mr.T shown that he is concern for students by always asking if they need help and motivates all his students.
He would call the students who are not doin well in class and try to encourage them to do better.
he met students individually to see how they were doing in class and if were passing his class or not. The students that were not passing he opted them to drop the class.
He gives a second chance to do our missing works or missing assignments.
he provided the help if it was needed and corrected others when wrong.
He was the first ever teacher that actually told me I'd be good at doing something. He encouraged me to look into Construction Management and further my studies instead of stopping once I received my degree in EIMT.
telling students what to do and tell them what is their grade once in awhile.
He said that if we needed help for our assignments then we should go to tutoring on Fridays because hes gonna be there.
everytime he would give us a task he would ask if we had anymore other questions and if we understood what we were doing.
Norman Takeya is dismissive! He is arrogant and throws students to the wind! he unfairly grades his students and becomes visibly irritated when students ask questions!
He had tutoring services every once a week on a friday.
Allows students to come in for help
He asks us if we have questions,comments,and concerns. Also he is avaliable outside of class time.
He would talk to them one on one and let them make up work. He treats his studens as individuals.
Offers tutoring on fridays, also works with individuals when asked upon.
He allowed time for questions, comments and/or concerns. He also emphasized his Friday tutoring an encouraged students to come in if they need help.
He shows concern by making himself available as much as he can. He explains the material until you understand it and I feel he is patient and knowledgeable.
he would let us know and help us if we were not doing to good.
He offered tutoring for those who needed extra help. Always ended the class with "comments? questions? concerns?" and had us up to date through emails.
he takes the time to explain one on one how to properly do assignments and class projects.
Calls each student that is failing individually into his office to tell them what they can do to pass the course he tells us missing assignments and shows what assignments could be done to improve your grade. when he notices that anybody is stuggling with an assignment he helps them one on one
He asks questions to make sure we understand the material being taught and he offers tutoring every friday.
he explains assignments clearly and he asks for questions.
Offering study sessions every friday.
Checking up with them on their grades.
helping them out
In my case he helped me one on one to help me figure out the questions that i was concerned about, as well as others...
He reminded us a few times that he was available after class time for tutoring. He also stressed the importance of being able to read blueprints well to be a good electrician.
He would give individual attention to struggling students.
Made sure everyone understood the assignments,and did tutoring for those who needed help. If some students did not have the material for a certain homework he would come up with another assignment that would make it fair for everyone.
he took time to know them
He always asked us if we understood each lesson.
He takes time to help them and explains the question so they can get if more clearly and understand it better. He takes time out of his day to help his students outside of class.
HE would come around the table and see who would need help. And he would have Friday open to his class if you need any more help.
He encourages everybody to do all the things to do ahead of time.
Free tutorials every friday,(which is not a class day). He asks questions.
Reminds people about the work and projects
Norman Takeya showed concern for students by explaining things that were uncertain by the class.
Told them to come in for study hall if we needed help and told us what we can do to get our grade up.
He is available for help and has tutoring on his non class days
Mr.Takeya provided blueprints and materials for class. He also let the class make up missing assignments.
Norman Takeya shows concern for students is that he tell us our grades and explained to us which assignments are missing. He also explains how we can improve our grades. One way to improve our grades is doing the module project. Mr. Takeya shows concern for students by providing a tutor class on fridays.
Mr. Takeya was very reasonable with deadlines for projects when i had family troubles and was very understanding about it.
The way he walks around class to help students one on one explaining.
He has tutoring every Friday which open to all of his students. He is glad to help his students to succeed in his class.
no comment
He walks around the classroom and gives each student one-on-one time to answer and explain out questions thoroughly
He gave tutoring and helped students in any way that they needed.
He always lets the students know that he is available for tutoring after class. Also he say if you cant make it to the tutoring to let him know so that he can make arrangements to meet with you.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
What liked most about his teaching is the time and availability he sacrifices for his students. He is very well organized and gets every student in the class on their toes. There isn't really anything to complaint about him except the jokes he provided for us during class. Can't take everything serious, unless we really need to focus on what we find hard to learn about, but really there is no problem whatsoever.
Real world construction trade approach to class instruction, wealth of trade secrets.
The real life aspect that the teacher gave
i liked how he gave us formulas to get the exact measurements of things.
Nothing
He was a teacher who was down to earth and worked well with his students
i disliked that he doesn't go through definition completely.
I especially liked about the way Mr.T taught this course by explaining the subject in a way that we could understand.
He was a nice teacher and good to get along with.
I liked the way he explained things. He was very helpful. If you didn't understand something, he would go over it again until you got it.
I like the way he organizes things that make the subject more clear. He explain some details that are necessary in the course.
I like how he didn't evaluate us based on our test scores but more on our hard work and our interest in the class.
i like how everything is, from the homework to the classwork. i have nothing to dislike about this class.
I liked his course because he made it easy to understand and he made it a little fun aswell. I didn't like the fact that we had all these questionairs at the same time of our project.
i liked how you would have to be the one to ask him for help. when he helped you he explained the way it suppose to be done and the steps.
I dislike his course! although i know the subject matter well! others students dont know and they struggle horribly!
His help
At first disliked this class because I thought it was irrelavent to my major Welding, but as the weeks went by It all made sense to me that drafting helps alot in welding. It gives me a visual idea of things. Carpentry and Welding I can now see the similarities.
How he worked with us one on one.Came around and explained how things were done.Was open minded.
Very fun.
I like how the class was straightforward, simply pay attention and do the work. Also being able to work with others to collaborate ideas and solutions made for more productivity during class.
I liked his patience wih the class and willingness to help out with the work. I disliked that sometimes there was no lesson and maybe only a quiz for the class period.
i liked how he tried to make it easier to understand his work.
It's challenging course because of the amount of work he gives out but it only makes you want to try harder.
he moves fast
funny teacher with a lot of interesting stories about the field and he tells us about his personal experiences and that helps us see why we need to learn this stuff
i like how he kept us doing things over and over because before i had his class i never knew anything and now i learned a lot about blueprints.
I like the way we do repetitive assignments so that we eventually catch on to what we're learning if we didnt get it the first time.
he makes the course easy to understand
Very Specific and direct with his approach
dislike- nothing like-everything
nothing
I liked that he was a cool/chill teacher (most of the time) and sometimes joked around with us. I didn't like that he handed out assignments and left it up to the students to ask questions about what we didn't understand. I would have enjoyed the class more if he handed out assignments and then helped to explain some of the more difficult concepts on the chalkboard.
I thourghly enjoyed Mr. Ts class. He is a fun teacher who cares deeply about his work and makes it enjoyable.
He explained every assignment very clearly and gave a good amount of time to complete it which would allow all the students have time to do other class homework.
it was very hands on.
I liked how clearly he taught the course
What I like about his class is that I got taught how to ready blue prints and why we need to know and what it is used for. Also I liked that we got to do a project that we got to build a house that was fun.
I really liked the way he taught this class because I was able to learn a lot than I expected.
I like him because he always entertains questions from students.
I like his sense of humor. Very little or no explanation to every lesson we had. Always bookwork.
Liked everything
I especially liked that he would help us if we asked him.
Building the model
Liked how he made sure we understood the material before moving on
Mr.Takeya knew a lot about reading blueprints and working in construction. I liked that he taught us how to read blueprints and work in the real world.
I like about this course is the way Norman Takeya reached us how to use a site plan. Also, how to draw the different 3D dimensions and what each type of wood was called on a house framing.
I liked how Mr. Takeya took his time with teaching us the material to fit our individual learning speed.
The examples that he gives are all his real experiences he had on the job. I really enjoy those because they help me a lot.
I dislike how he answers questions vaguely and how he sometimes make students feel scared to ask questions. Students are scared that he will think their question is dumb to ask.
no comment
I like how he showed interest in our success, but also showed a sense of "though love". He didn't baby us throughout the course. He basically treated us like we were on a jobsite
Things would change from the syllabus due to some students angering the teacher. Everyone shouldn't be punished for the actions of a few students.
If we had questions he would answer them. also if he knew the class was not ready to move on to the next subject he would stay with the same one till he knew the class would be able to do it.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
This Blueprinting class is well lead with a one of kind teacher. Mr. Takeya makes it possible for everyone to pass the class, no matter how steep the hill. I for sure know Takeya can make it possible for the class coming next semester.
This course was very informative, yet simple. As long as you kept up with the reading and came to class, you learned something.
the house project was fun
Nothing
Fun, can be stressful at times, but fun overall
Hes a good teacher.
i would like to say that it would be great to have him again as my professor because he makes it fun to learn in his class and makes it easier to understan it.
I would take a course if he was an instructor any day.
More projects. Less book work.
be prepared for lots of work
He has been an amazing teacher and I wish there were more like him.
i like the project, because it helped me understand it more.
nothing
its not an easy class but its not difficult either. you have to pay attention to the things he teaches.
flee his course!
This class was a little awkward at first because just looking at the Blueprints confused me alot until the lightbulb went on.
Hes an awesome professor.Wonderful teacher. He's for your best interest.
Mr.T has a great sense of humor. makes class laugh every class meet.
I truly learned a lot by taking this course. And it's information that I know will come in handy in the future.
He has a great attitude. People just need to know how to work with him and not against him. The course is okay.. Need it for welding.. He has done his job because I have learned how to read a blueprint. That is all Mr. Takeya needed to teach.
great teacher.
This class has helped me understand blueprinting and made me use a lot of critical thinking independently and with others.
he should use cheaper books
blueprinting is hard
he is a COOL teacher!!!
It seems like a tough course to take but you just gotta be patient and not expect to catch on the first day. Mr. Takeya is a good teacher and will help you exceed in class.
its a fun class
Great teacher
recommend it! Great Class!
It is very educational.
Nothing.
It was by far my favorite class this semester.
Mr.Takeya is the first cool/chill teacher I know but yet makes sure you learn something when you leave his class every time.
hands on course, interactive
He is a very good teacher he helps you in many different ways. He make things fun to do when we get assignments and he is a really cool teacher.
This class was confusing in the beginning but after all the practices I got to understand more and more every class.
Mr. Takeya is a very friendly teacher.
more discussions and explanantions please.
Fun course learned a lot
I would like to say that this course was kind of difficult, but if you do your work and pay attention it is doable.
Nothing
Take his course if you want to learn blue print
The class was very interesting and I will definitely be using what I learned from this class at work.
I would like say if you know how to build the module project by the end of this course, you definitely learned something in Blueprint reading.
very informational and helpful in real life work situations.
Highly recommended, this class will teach everything that u need to know and have fun while learning.
Overall, he knows his material very well. I encourage students going into engineering, construction, welding, carpentry, or other applied trades to take his class. I learned a lot.
no comment
Overall it was a fun course. I learned a lot and am ready to take the information I learned into the real world
The course is very straightforward. He is a good teacher that puts things simply straightforward and if you don't like it then you shouldnt be taking his class.
Fun enjoyable. just do your work and come to class
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
It's a guarantee, one-hundred percent, positive Yes for me. I would personally recommend Takeya for students coming up the next few years.

26. Other comments:
I NOW KNOW HOW TO SPEAK GERMAN(Read Blueprints)!!!!!
Mr T tries so hard to motivate his students to learn and i feel his efforts are wasted on some students who really dont care. I feel better screening policies should be implemented to prevent such a horrible waste.

None

Always be friendly. It makes us more open to you. Keep up the good work Mr. Takeya.
Keep up the good work Mr. Takeya! I'll definitely be looking into Construction Management. Thanks for the recommendation. It meant a lot to me.

I think he doesnt belong in teaching! he is impatient! he is not nice and he is arrogant!
I think Norman Takeya is one of my best instructors I ever had and its been fun being in his class.

Nothing

All in all this is a great class.
I learned a lot that would help me in my career and home repairs.
This class is the bomb.com
good teacher. not a fan of him "punishing" the entire class for individual students messing up. other than that, recommend to other students.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Although it was an online course he set aside time for students needed extra help with more complex portions of the course to meet in person and go over the material and questions.
Mr. T is flexible and accommodating. He really goes above and beyond when his students need help. He understands life happens.
I have him for another subject, he offers a lot of assistance if you have any questions.
hes always available for help.
He would give time for students to do the work and turn it in if necessary.
yes! Norman is one of the best teachers I ever had! I would be a college drop out and going no where with my life if it wasn't for his influence.
He was always available to explain and answer questions. Very prompt with responding to emails or issue that arose with assignments, tests, projects, and Laulima. He would contact us to check on our progress. Provided expert advice and advised us of opportunities in the field with scholarships, etc.
If students have questions concerning assignments, he made sure everyone knew he was available to answer questions. He tried to accommodate students' schedules for meetings. He was understanding about individual concerns or issues with regard to assignment due dates. He was always willing to help, you just had to ask.
Whenever there is a time where we don't understand something or need help, we can always send an e-mail or go to his office for help and he'll take the time to explain it to you.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
Ability to apply the concepts in projects.
Online courses require a lot of self discipline. I like that Mr. T related the subject matter to the real world and real world applications. I like that Mr. T was so knowledgeable and energetic about the subject matter and was really always available for questions.
this is the first time i took an online class. I like how efficient it was to email him and his response would be fast.
I liked how we had the wednesday class because the material was hard but it died out because no one was coming to it...
I liked that the corse was online.
I'd like for this course to be in class rather then online, but Mr Takeya explained this well, and opened his office to us any time to come see him if he had questions.
He was very organized and was always available for help. He shares his valuable knowledge with us!
He had a lot of experience working in this industry and he shared his experiences. He had a lot of interesting insight and perspective on various situations.
I dislike how this class was an online class and I felt like we didn't absorb as much information as we could have if this was an actual class.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Good course and instructor, would prefer to have as an in class course rather than online.
Mr. T rocks, keep it up! This course is challenging because it uses a lot of ideas not known to most people, however, I feel I am more prepared for work in the real world because of it.
Construction management came hand in hand with the blueprinting class.
I dont think cmgt 100 should be an online course. the material is hard to be self taught. I feel that this should be a course thats held in class.
its good corse but alot to take in at once.
He is a great professor that is genuinely concern about his students.
The course was more involved than I thought it would be, but that is probably my expectation. There were some sections that were more in depth than I thought was necessary for an introduction class. Mr. Takeya mentioned he was using a different text book this semester and may return the one he used previously.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, he cares about the students, is passionate about the program and has a lot of experience in the industry to share with students.
Definitely! Mr. T is an outstanding teacher, he is fun, and makes class interesting. He is extremely approachable and explains concepts well!
If you like a trade where you use your brains, not your body. I recommend this class because you'll use a lot of it!!
yes he's helpful
yes i would because he will hear you out on whats going on with you and alter things for you if approatly needed.
YES! He's one of the few college professors that still cares about his students. A lot of my teachers do this just for a pay check and don't care about their students. Mr. T is a great teacher!HE CARES
Yes. He is one of the best professors in the Construction Management Major. He is fair and very helpful.
Yes, he was a great instructor. He made class interesting. He always seemed willing to help if you asked. He didn't usually just give you the answer outright, but pointed you in the right direction.
I would recommend Mr. Takeya to other students because he is an overall friendly guy, easy and fun to talk to, and provides help as long as you ask.

This is my first on-line class so I'm don't really have any comparison. I've taken on-line training, but there wasn't an instructor that you could email or discuss problems with. You just read the material, answer the questions and receive a certificate. I would take another on-line class from HCC.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Personally, he's really attentive to my weaknesses and is sincere in helping me work through them. I find him to be very outgoing and easy to talk to which makes seeking his help really comforting.
He tells students that are falling behind to contact him for help or see him after class.
Not too sure
He didn't. He let the people strive for their own excellence. If people didn't do their work week after week, they would still get second chances. Sad that many people dropped out because they thought there was too much work. I thought there was too much work, but that's no reason to give up and die.
He's willing to help them in any way he can to have them understand. He will explain what is needed to be done.
worked with students to help them
He would try find a way to help the students, that are failing, to raise their grades higher.
Mr.Takeya encourage us to do our best mostly through Laulima, and he always ask to the class who have any questions, comments, or concerns.
he showed concerns by understanding that students not only have this class so in turn he is lenient in the assignments we have to do.
He allowed for opportunities for students to get ahead when they started to fall behind
He showed concerns for students through the announcements he had sent us through laulima.
n/a
by giving lots of work to do like quiz, tell back, discussion every week.
He make sure students do their assignment and have announcements nearly every week and informs us on our progress and what we will be doing in the following week
He would send reminders on the home page of laulima reminding the students that we needed to finish somethings before a certain date, and sometimes giving us a week or so notice on it.
Because this class only meets once a week, Mr. T always posted announcements to keep us on track with assignments and classwork. He always responded to my emails quickly.
He is a good guy, and he also talks to his student.
Mr. T. show concern for students by explaining and giving examples on how important it was to stay abreast daily with the course load. For me personally, his concern is held in high regard due to his compassion and empathy for my attempting to seek a higher education, in the field of "Architectural Design Indigenous to Hawaii". In my meetings with him one on one he is genuine a unique individual, well rounded in his expertise on "construction Management", tells it like it is the "truth" and is in a professional manner very upfront gentleman. I highly recommend Mr. T. course to everyone entering into the trade and construction field. Thank you Mr. T. for your kindness and shared knowledge in this course.
Mr. Takeya showed concern for the students by asking us if we understood or if we needed help through out the course. He didn't want any of the students to fail.
he pointed out the facts about people not doing well in class with out mentioning names to expose them and make them feel pick out.
He showed concern by interacting with students on the discussion board.
Made sure everyone was timely with due dates.
He is always available. For me, he gave me an email so I could meet up with him to discuss my grades.
Mr Takeya would listen to the concerns and question we had for assignments and would offer help.
He adds reminders in his announcements. He is also available for help if you need it.
He opted to help me out if I didn't understand the material. He was willing to go over material with me outside of class so I could do better. He didn't have to do that but he offered to, awesome.
Allowing time to answer emails of questions quickly and also, changing things quickly if there was a descrepancy.
Mr. Takeya was always available if I needed extra help in class. He is very responsive through emails as well.
He tells beforehand the deadlines, what to do for the week, and tells the class how we did the previous week
He respond right away to emails concerning work or any inconveniences on assignment submissions and etc. He also takes time to really read and even leave comments here and there through our tellbacks or messaging board.
He continuously let us know he's available to help us. And if people were behind, he showed concern on helping them catch up.
He emailed me and offered help.
Norman Takeya shows his concern for his students by sending us e-mails and informs us in the announcements that students whose grades are dropping (like I was in the beginning) to come see him in his office and talk to him. After I met with him, he gave me useful advice, and now I understand the focus of this course and I am passing.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
I especially liked group discussions and hearing Mr. Takeya's take on the subject matters through his many years of experience.
I like how he is open to any discussions dealing with the subject of the course. I dislike deadlines on different chapter. I feel that it is better to work in your own pace.
Tells us that we need to discuss in class, but doesnt provide good grounds to dicuss (yes or no questions or questions with simple answers) so we have to do a summary of the next chapter, not very fair. He HATES the green concept. Quick to shoot down ideas he doesnt fully accept. I couldnt open documents he posts on Laulima, and I asked him to changed to an older format or just post it so we can just read it on laulima, but he said he is already trying to accommodate other students and didnt do anything about it. So I couldnt do homework at home, I had to find time to do it at school when I didnt have work or other classes, which wasnt much time.
I liked that Mr. Takeya was straight foward with the class. Didn't beat around the bush, didn't give a crap what others though and gave his opinion strongly. It's something you don't get with any teacher because they are afraid that someone will get offended and they will lose their job. Mr. Takeya's attitude is something we need in more classes. Teachers afraid to say things are only hindering the students in learning.
disliked the amount of time needed to invest outside of class for 1 credit
I like all the PowerPoint he shows us because it's super interesting to me. I have no dislike in this class.
I like that the course is online, giving students flexibility to do their own pace. This course is all about sustainability, and it is a benefactor not only to construction but to the ways how we live a greener lifestyle.
He taught us interesting ways and ideas on how to be self sustainable and how to make our island a better more efficient place.
I did not like the skeptical tone he had when addressing green building. It is in my opinion that the material should be taught and the student allowed to make his or her own judgements based on that. I did like the research product assignments and the building assignment
I enjoyed the videos he had shown us that related to the subjects we would discuss in class. They were very interesting.
n/a
like: he gave a lot of interested examples, sometime stories. dislike: too many works to do.
He understands what he is teaching and he uses his past experience in the field to teach his students
I liked a lot of the videos he showed, as well as the pictures and what he explained to us about his trip to Japan, it was really interesting on how Japan can make working and living in such small spaces possible, and the no litter on the streets was amazing.
I like that Mr. T was very straight forward about what we will be covering and what would be expected from us. I think that the inclass/online format works well for this course. I like that we used laulima to turn in all assignments and quizzes.
He explain well, and he also send us a weekly info about the class just in case we forgot our activities.
What I especially liked about this course was his great ability to deliver via lecture tremendous amounts of information in a very broken down understandable manner. He is truly a great instructor. He knows exactly what the industry is about and his direct yet gentle keen manner in which he delivers the information is very admirable. What I especially enjoyed was when directed upon to comment he always allowed me to explain myself and be recognized for my efforts. Thank You Mr. T.
I disliked how during class, he would just sometimes show us a powerpoint presentation. It wasn't very interesting. However, I did enjoy working on the final project for the course.
I like that he told us the truth about the green building industry and trys not to B S people. what i didn't like is that he change alot of things each weekly.
I like how the class was to the point and one of the requirements were to post on other students topics to give an opinon on how we felt on a particular topic or chaptper of that week.
The layout of the course was really straightforward and easy to understand.
I liked that for most of the discussions, we had to apply the topic to our own lives or research a product that Ive never heard of.
I liked that he encouraged us with positive feedback whenever we shared during class discussions.
He made the course interesting. There is a lot of time for the assignments. A very tiny problem i had is that sometimes he does not respond to emails.
I really liked the format of everything about the class. The list of what to do, the assignments, quiz's, dates when there do, the grades layout. I really liked it and showed he was extremely organized and ready to rock and roll.
I took this as an online course. I liked that each period was available for the whole week. I maybe would have liked being in the regualar class, as it might have been more interesting, though this interfered with the time of my other classes.
I really liked how he set up an open forum for class discussion.
It is online....can do it at anytime I am free....and there is a week for a topic, which is good....
I liked how he was really thorough with all the assignments and material taught on this online course.
Very encouraging
I really liked the way Norman Takeya motivates us to succeed in this course. He is a very honest person and will tell you like it is. I really enjoyed this course.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
It is a good course if you like discussions and lectures about the subject.
Read the question before.
N/A
His class is super easy and fun. He is also a cool and funny teacher.
Great course, great instructor.
He seems to have lots of experience to teach this subject of being sustainable.
Maybe provide more in detail exlaination of ideas from the book in class prior to the assignment
the course need to be more than 1 credit
I would say that he is a good and fun teacher.
Very good teacher, knowledgeable, a lot of experience in construction and he really understand what he is teaching
I think that there was a lot to do on a weekly basis for a 1 credit course, but it did help a little to make us understand it a little better.
interesting course and teacher
Finally the encouragement he has given me and that gentle professional smile and nod of approval will always be with me throughout my career and professional now and in the future. His character and demeanor though astute and direct he throws no punches and tells it like it is and i respect that in him. Thank you Mr. T.
Overall, mr Takeya is a good professor. I learned many new things about green building practices from mr Takeya and this course.
overall its good.
Overall this class was fairely easy.
Great course.
I really liked that he was always available if you needed help.
This course really does teach you a lot about the "Go Green" movement and opens your eyes as to how easy it is to construct/convert your home to a more eco friendly building. Takeya's assignments really do help you look more into the process and materials in a surprisingly easy way....Although it is also just as easy to fall back if you take it too lightly.
It is a useful course. I talked more to other students than in my classes where it is heavy computer work.
I would like to say that he should keep up the good work and I really enjoyed his class.
This is an interesting course, and I would recommend it to students who are interested in building with green materials and ideas.
It is a very interesting class. The class structure is excellent and I wouldn't change a thing.
I really like the project...because it makes me think of things then assemble it....more like creating it....
It was a great course for my first online college class.
It was a great course.
Very helpful
This course is very useful. I feel that this course serves as an important preparation for other students trying to enter the construction field. The course teaches the future generation of Architects, Contractors, and any other type of construction worker the way to build sustainably and build "Green".
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
Yes, he's a fun and knowledgeable teacher.
I would recommend Norman Takeya because he cares about his course. He believes that his students will create a better and greener society.
No, read my answer to question 23
I would not. Only because of the workload. It's a great class if it was strictly discussion and this class was more than 1 time a week. I would enjoy coming in twice a week to talk about the chapter we were supposed to read. It would become evident who didn't read in the class if we had discussions on just the chapter at hand.
yes if its needed for their degree
Yes, because you will enjoy his class and you learn a lot of green materials.
Yes, I would recommend other students to Mr.Takeya for those who are interested in construction.
Yes because he encourages the class to discuss ideas and theories on how to be sustainable and gives feedback on what he thinks. Being social and on the subject.
Its a required course. The material is important for anyone in the building industry but I dont think it is a well rounded intro to green building.
Yes, he's very friendly and opened for any questions and concerns.
n/a
I think I would because in his class if you do all the work every week, I sure you will pass 100%.
Yes because he is a good teacher and can provide a lot of information
Yes, but probably only if they needed the course to go towards a degree, it's only once a week and not even for an hour, but it's pretty interesting.
This topic was something that I was not very familiar with at the start of this semester. Thank you for making it interesting. I feel like I am walking away with a lot of new knowledge.
Sure, he is a nice guy.
Yes I would recommend this course to anyone getting into the trades simply because Mr. T. is very knowledgeable in about the construction industry. Thank you Mr. T.
Yes, I would recommend Norman Takeya to other students. He teaches very well and knows a lot about the course.
yes he is a very nice person and easy to get along with.
Yes, beacuse it was a simple class with only reflections, quiz, and discussions every week.
Yes. Although it's an online class, it is very interactive and hands on.
Yes, i believe that he is a really good teacher.
Yes I would. His course was very insightful and the work wasn't over bearing, but nor was it an easy pass. This class will make you think and analyze about your own daily life and the impact it has on greater scales.
Yes i would. He is a fair teacher and gives reasonable amount of work. It is also a very informative course.
Yes I would recommend Mr. Takeya to other students because he is a real down to earth guy who really cares about students and bettering there future. Students now are teachers of the future. Don't forget an awesome teacher.
Yes, he seems to be interested in the field in which he teaches.
Yes. You learn a lot of great things about being ecofriendly. You can apply the things you learn in this class to daily living.
Yes....
Yes, I would highly recommend his class because of his teaching style and ability to have us think and open our minds even without physically being a classroom environment.
Yes, he is a good teacher.
Yes, he taught the course very well.
Yes. It's very important for anyone trying to enter the construction field because they'll learn to build sustainably and efficiently.

29. Other comments:
A waste of my time and extremely inconvenient for 1 stupid credit. I had to spend more time on homework for this class than my english class. He should at least act like he's interested in the matter. Make open ended questions for class, maybe have debates on the subjects to pull students into the subject. Chapter summaries are stupid, there is so much information to "put in your own words." Quizzes are a waste of time, he should know why, especially since we type the entire book to him in our own words.
Loved this class. Would get rid of the tell-back with people having more in- depth discussions on the discussion board. It's sad to see people typing one sentence to get it done. Take away the tell-back and grade way more harshly on the content people post on the discussion board. Having an in depth discussion with classmates allows us to learn, rather than regurgitate what the book told us.
I think Norman knows all this material just fine but it seems as though he is not passionate about it. It would be nice to see him embrace his knowledge to pass on to students
nope.
Thank you for the good time sir!
I would like to thank each and everyone I met through my career path, especially the trade instructors and Mr. T. for giving me the opportunity to excel and move forward in seeking my Architectural path towards U.H. Manoa. Especially my career counselor Shari Caresman who has been extremely helpful in being patient and understanding with me. God Bless you all.
I've enjoyed learning about green building practices from this course.
none
None
Mahalos!
It teaches you responsibility in that you are more accountable for your learning.
Great job Mr. Takeya
Participation in the online course allowed me to understand the material. Though, it would have been even better in face-to-face format, though, this was my only option as it interfered with the time of my other required classes. Overall, the course was fine, though, the book used I find explains things well, though it repeats things that otherwise could be condensed, which takes more time than needed.
Good Course. It should remain a requirement to anyone trying to enter the construction field.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
He takes time and understand that everyone is not on the same page.
Mr. Takeya answered any question about the class, both inside and outside of class time. He also took the time to explain concepts to the entire class at once, if the same question came up repeatedly from individual students.
When help is needed from a student, he helps them almost immediately.
He was always availible for help. He made it sure that students knew they could see him for any help.
The was there to help whenever we needed it.
He asks students for help to make sure all students are on the same page.
He's always helping before and after class repeating steps for students.
Norman strongly encourages the students to ask for help, and work with others in the class through any roadblocks. He recognizes potential of students and encourages themm to raise their educaional goals.
Mr. Takeya is always willing to help me whenever I have questions. He is encouraging and helps me better myself by constantly pushing me and allowing me to correct mistakes I've made, rather than excepting the incorrect work.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
What I especially liked was that Mr. Takeya brought in examples from his own experience to illustrate the importance and applicability of what we were learning. I also like the fact that the course was meant to be relevant for any field where CAD can be used, as opposed to limiting its scope to one particular application (for instance, to the design of industrial equipment).
He explains what is needed and expected
He let us learn by doing things ourselves.
How passionate he was about his subject and how helpful he was.
I like his half lecture and half practice (lab) style.
He was very understanding.
I especially like the way he allows his students to discover solutions on their own. He slyly provides individual assesment of each student and then gives you just enough help to go on and discover solutions on your own.
I especially liked that Mr. Takeya included humor in the classroom. He always makes class very enjoyable.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
Another thing I liked about Mr. Takeya was the approach he took to teaching students. While he lectured (and lectured very well), he also encouraged students to think things through when using CAD. This motivated all of us to think through difficulties that came up in the course of using CAD. This is, I would imagine, probably a skill that is vital for people in the industry.
It was a fun course.
Great fun course. He males you get interested in learning and he actually wants you to learn.
He is always helpful to students even after class although some teachers are not. I like the way he explains and shares his concerning against matters based on not only from textbooks also his experience.

The course was awesome for me. I feel prepared to move on to next level of this subject area.
Although Mr. Takeya is fun and an easy-going teacher, he does expect a lot from his students when it comes to the class work. He is a great teacher and I feel I have learned a lot from him. I especially appreciate that he welcomed myself and my classmates to see him for tutoring or any other help we may need during our future semesters here at HCC, which proves how committed he is to help us succeed.
25. Would you recommend this instructor to other students? Why or why not?
I would recommend him, for all of the reasons mentioned above.
Yes, because he is very understanding and helpful.
I would because he is really here to help the student learn.
Yes, I strongly recommend him to other students. He is really easy going, flexible and helpful teacher.
Yup^.^
Yes I would because he's a real person. I'm older than all the student in class and I recognize when an instructor truly cares about the students.
Yes, I would definitely recommend Mr. Takeya to other students. If they are looking for a fun and rewarding class, Mr. Takeya is the professor to have.

Thank you so much for all lectures, sharing experience, and encouraging me to do the best work through this summer class. I'm so glad to have had him as a teacher of my first AEC.
Nope.
As a single parent, busines owner, returning student, getting back into a classroom was a challenge for me. Norman has been extremely patient and supportive. Although I've earned degrees in the 1980's,much has changed since then. However just as back then, it's a pleasure to find a professor that can push the right buttons to individually challenge each student yet provide enough support for us to be successful. Moreover, Norman is very good at what he does and it's clear he enjoys it. A good soul.

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
he would ask students to make sure that they are prepared in passing blueprint or otherwise withdraw it.
always gave us a second chance to come in for tutoring.
he did a goodjob
helped a lot which it came to learning how to read the blueprint
He would walk around the class while we are doing our work. he then asks the students who looks like they are struggling if they need help.
Great teacher, caring attitude towards students and willing give up his free Friday to help students.
Takeya always ask questions to students, before leaving class, if they have any questions about the section.
Help outside class.
He takes time to talk to student if they are having trouble in class to help them understand, he also gives students opportunity to come in to tutoring classes if they are falling behind
HE was very intersting, the material was good, and his way of teaching was very good!!! Strong recommendation !
He suggested his students if they need any help with any classwork by giving his office hours of his availability, or tutor students on Fridays in his classroom.
makes sure everyone knows how to answer the questions.
He would come up to you and tell you if you are doing bad in class.
Gave time to come in on their own time to ask for help.
Allowing out of class help and accommodating to students needs.
Reminding us everyday to finish out homework and work on the projects
he gives the students for asking questions
He offers friday help when students are willing to attend.
he would give us chances to make up for those who miss their quizzes or test .
He showed it by giving us a chance to redo our quizzes if we fail it.
Like the final project that we are doing. He encouraged as to do the project earlier and we can ask him about the project. He also doing the project himself to show to us how we would do it.
He help those who are in need of help.
He was always willing to help during and outside of class when he could.
If you needed extra help w/class work, he made himself readaly avalible for totoring.
I notice if someone is having a bad day he tries to make the whole class laugh and he gets at least a smile out of someone. He lets his students know when he is available to help with any homework. Once in a while he will give extra credit to those who miss a test. It only happened once. He talks loud so you wont miss a thing.
Make sure we understood what he was teaching.
Offers help both in class and outside of class.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
it was really straight forward.
Was straight to the point not getting off subject
i really like the model project because you come across the same problems carpenters come across and how to fix it. i disliked how it was really based on carpentry
i like how he made this course open notes on tests..
I like the way Takeya taught this course by giving the students examples of parts of a building and showing us what it looks like to understand a section.

It's a very interesting course, very challenging at times and not only pencil and paper work but it's also hands on

In this course, I like the project that he gave us. It's very interesting because we can build a mini house.
The way he teach was easy enough to understand.
He was patient and gave a lot of work to do so that we could understand the course. He didnt always give you the answer to some questions if he knew that you knew it.
He is very knowledgable about the course he teaches...and does it in a way u can understand.
He works thru a problem on the bored very neatly and detailed, like calculating how much concrete or the total bored feet. He lets us know if there is an error on the worksheets so we don't stress.
The subject I learned and the teacher.
Makes good examples and assignments to learn the course material

22. How did the instructor show concern for students?
Email everyone
Since this was an on-line course some of the questions do not directly apply, but I can still tell by the feedback and the way assignments were constructed that this is a teacher who is fair and cares about the students. I would enjoy being in any class he teaches. He gave me clear feedback and was very understanding when I asked questions in the beginning. Since this was my first on-line course I was a bit lost at first, but Mr. T was very helpful.
He made sure that students knew that he was available outside of class times.
This was an online course and the instructor repeatedly encouraged students to keep up with the schedule and ask for help
He is a pretty fair guy, if you work is going to be late and you give him notice, he his very understandable to that. Also, he is very flexible with schedules, work, and understands we all have alot on our plates.
By keeping an on-going dialogue with those who are falling behind. He is also available during office hours and/or email for extra help.
He offered help outside of class through email and other means of communication.
He pushes us to email him or message him any concerns or questions we have.
yes, he always helps us if we need help
He constantly ask if anyone is having difficulties with the work.
Mr Takeya always encourages us to do our best. In the case we are still in need of assistance, we have his contact info and are able to meet with him during office hours.
23. What did you especially like/dislike about the way the instructor taught this course?
the class was graded very good
Enjoyed this class it was outlined and followed a specific routine, no surprises. This class should be worth more than just 1 credit with the amount of reading and writing that goes into it. It's a good class and deserves more credit.
I liked how it was consistent each week, and it was very clear what was expected of me. Assignments were not an overload as some classes can be, but I learned soooooooooo much about green building. This course is a great gift to me, my future, and the people who will buy and live in the homes that I will design.
I liked the way he applied it to everyday life, and how he allowed students to express their personal thoughts and ideas.
I like that Mr. Takeya encouraged class discussion via the online forum
I appreciate how Mr. T asks questions and gets us to think in the group discussions.
The material was very straight-forward, as were the expectations for the course.
I like the application of content to real work practices.
i espeically liked that he would email us everytime and shows he cared for what we did.
yes, I learned and i had to push myself
His knowledge of the subject.
There is a lot of new and interesting information about the construction industry taught in this course.
24. What else would you like to say about this instructor/course?
I only regret that this was not a classroom course, because I would have enjoyed the interaction in a class very much.

you could do the assignment when you have time before the deadline
It was new to me, and changed my pre-concieved opinion of the on-line course experience.
I'd like the online interaction and project.
It was very convenient and accessible.
The flexibility to work at my own pace.

I really liked that i could work at my own pace.
Easy to acess our work and test, wasn't hard like some other classes. I new what we needed to do all the time
Using time wisely
The freedom to work at my own leisure.
30. What did you like least about your online course experience?
That this class was only worth 1 credit.
Getting to know how to use the on-line site was frustrating at first, but after a couple weeks I got the hang of it.
I liked the course a lot, no complaints.
Lack of a classroom environment makes learning a little more challenging.
Lack of personal interaction.
I really didnt like that I couldnt keep on track with my work because i was so swamped with other work.
