23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The aspects of the course I like the best was learning the general aspects about art. Because I am not a art major and I am a person who does not like art because I get frustrated easily, but I learned the basic history of art and I got to do some cool sketches and projects that I thought I could not do.
I loved the projects, they challenging but very fun to do. I feel the studio projects improved my skills in art.
Drawing and painting images of my imagination
The aspects of the course I like the best were the art and sketch projects.
the Lecture is clear and I feel like I am inside the class.
Hands on sketchbook and project assignments.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The aspects of the course I like the least was the long dreading lectures I have to listen to weekly so I can prepare myself for the Midterm Exams.
I didn't like the lectures
I didn't like the midterm exams.
The aspects of the course I least liked was listening and looking at the powerpoint slide and audio differently. I'm more of a visual learner. aAt times I had to stop at some time in the audio to note down some important details but the slide kept going .
There is nothing I like everything.
Not all assignments were detailed clearly and being that this was an online class I wasn't able to ask the professor right away.
Lectures.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
My overall evaluation of this course is that I recommend others taking it especially online. I would think it would be hard, but actually its pretty easy, but you need to be more independent and learn on your own. Professor Nikou responds to e-mails and answers them very quickly which I like the most. I like how the slides and audio files are separate,but it matched up so I had to pay attention to the two so I would have a better understanding. Overall,this is a fun class, but sad to say its ending soon because it is only a summer online course. So I recommend everyone to take this online class.
It is a great course to take over summer.
Pretty good
It's a good course to learn about the introduction to visual arts.
I was able to learn about art.
There were four midterms and only a few sketches required. Not a lot of extra credit and not something I will continue to take with me
N/A
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
How this course could be improved, by less lecture meaning the audio and slides. I would like to see more videos of updated art or some fun pop quiz or games because taking an online class can get boring after watching a lot of lectures so maybe more fun activities to go along with it also will be great.
The assignment due dates could be spread out a little more. Also the lectures should be a little bit shorter so it is easier to focus in. The lectures should also be different from the old class lectures
If your going to have lectures please have video lectures instead of audio. Audio is to dull and hard to listen too.
It would be helpful if you provided a study guide for the midterm.
I am able to draw something and I got to know about history of art.
Communication between students and professor could be improved
N/A
27. Other comments:
None, but I got to say this the Best art teacher and class I have taken in college!
Thank you Mr. Nikou, i have learned a great deal of art over the last few weeks.
Loved the art projects and sketching though!:)
Prof Nikou is very helpful and supportive.

24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
None.
Subjects sometimes tend to lose interest.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great course that satisfies both DA and WI.
Great course. My writing has improved because this course required research, planning, and writing.
Satisfactory. Very clear instructions.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The provided MLA format webpage on the HCC website is not very detailed. On the HCC website there is a much more detailed PDF containing the MLA format. The PDF should be provided instead of the website.
Slides and audio need to be merged to together. Difficult to follow both at the same time, and sometime you don't know when to move to the next slide. Maybe essays should be due in the morning and not in midnight because some people have full time jobs, and it makes it difficult to complete hw at midnight.
27. Other comments:
This WI course was intense and very "fast-paced" for me but I expected it since it is during the summer.
Great class, great teacher. Always stayed in contact with students whether it be updating or reminding us of changes or reminders to turn in assignments.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I loved how organized and easy it was to follow the course. I also loved how each section of the course came with audio and video slides.
Loved every part of the course and lectures. The freedom of online instruction instead of dealing with the hassle of traffic, issues of being physically in a classroom environment, and more importantly the ability to learn from a true professional artist with the utmost knowledge. Recommend highly that this course be taken for any true naive artist that wants to explore the reality of art! The prefessor clearly states what is expected and needed to complete each assignment, project, and clearly made me open my eyes to the rich history of Visual arts!
That it was online and that I could do the homework anytime I wanted to when I was free.
I'm grateful for the additional time to turn in assignments.
I loved the fact that he encouraged me outside of the classroom to do my best!
I enjoyed the lectures and project assignments
The fact that we were able to turn our work on our own time
Doing projects and sketches
The projects and the freedom to be creative--and the fair grading of assignments, as well as feedback.
Marty incorporated different styles of learning. We were assigned to read from the textbook, listen to lectures & follow slides (because it is a DL course), and we were given hands on art assignments. I liked that it wasn't all one medium. We were given the opportunity to learn in different ways. I appreciate that about DL courses.
I liked how the modules clearly showed what us students needed to do for the week.
I liked the material that was study. Professor Nikou did a great job and explaining the concepts through is course lectures and slideshows.

This was a great class and well constructed, I have nothing negative to say.
None!
At times I found it hard to understand his accent in the lectures, so it made listening and understanding a bit hard.
I would have loved a little more elaborate slides.
nothing
A lot of work
listening to long lectures. having to click back and forth from the audio and slide.
Some of the project objectives were a little unclear. Some deadlines were shortened for weekly assignments.
I didn't like however, the weekly quizzes. Selecting a DL course for me, is to learn and study at my own pace. It would have been appreciated if each section was available 3-4 weeks ahead of time, instead of unlocking each week.
I didn't like the lectures they were to long and it's hard for me to learn just by listening.
That I never got to meet him face to face.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great for anyone, would recommend it to all students.
Admiration of in depth details of visual arts and the ease of instruction! This course has opened my eyes as well heart to the true value of visual arts that I will take with me on my educational journey for life! Highly and kindly recommend this course of instruction and challenge any naive artist to learn from an amazing professor.
a good learning experience about art. I came in the class thinking it was going to be a breeze, but I actually had to work.
Great course for general education
a fun, easy and informative class
Good if you discipline yourself in keeping up with the work
somewhat okay
I would recommend it to ANYONE! He's an amazing instructor.
of satisfaction. Our instructor gives us feedback on our quizzes and other assignments, which is rare nowadays, especially for DL courses. The workload was a bit much than I had expected for a 100-level class, though.
I thought it was a good class. i learned a lot.
Great course, great professor, fun projects/assignments.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I dont think this course can be improved. It comes with everything you need and clear instructions.
Only to keep the same professor and his style of instruction!
I don't know.
I don't have any issues with this course.
listening to long lectures. having to click back and forth from the audio and slide is a hassle. I suggest having the slide and audio put together. Also for the quiz have the question chronologic to the audio and slide.
More projects? Other than that, nothing.
This course could be improved if students could be involved in discussions with one another. This allows ideas to flow and comprehension of topics to be better. Also, its to ease the stress on quizzes.
Routinely review online course material that students need to view in the modules.
27. Other comments:
I think not only was the course good but the instructor was friendly and easy to approach. It was my favorite course in my two years of college. Because the material covered was interesting and the course itself was organized and easy to follow along without getting left behind.
Thank you to Professor Marty for opening my eyes to the visual arts!
N/A
Instead of doing lectures AND textbook readings each week, maybe do an alternate of the resources. DL courses, it's sometimes difficult to set aside 4-7 hours a week to listen to lectures and read text. Listening to lectures for an online course may defeat the purpose, for most students, to take an online course. It's like they might as well take the course on-campus. Happy summer!
Good course. Thanks for having me a part of it.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
i like creating project 3
i love that i could do my work along with the time chart but not submit my quizzes till later, i was able to listen to the lectures again with fresh ears and make sure about my answers.
neither
I liked the art projects and sketchbook assignments. I've never taken an art class before even in high school so this was a treat. I was able to find my creative artistic self and have fun without all the seriousness. Don't get me wrong Mr. Nikou did challenge my intellect with his lectures and weekly quizzes.
I liked this entire lecture/course.
The projects he made us do was fun.
not much
I truly enjoyed learning the history aspect of art and how art has developed over the years.
I really enjoyed the art projects we did but I wish we had more art to do rather than art history.
course was easy to follow along with
I liked the supplemental viedos along with his course lectures. I liked the spacing between art projects and sketchbook work.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
the first part was the hardest for me.. trying to give detail on what art means to me
a few times my slide shows wouldn't load properly
I did have difficulty with some of the weekly quizzes but I am happy with the overall outcome. I feel like I did learn a lot in Mr. Nikou's class and I would recommend his class to a friend.
n/a
The lectures and quizzes.
lectures were out of a classroom , long, boring, and even though you listen 4 times he doesnt state the facts clearly
The projects were costly and not all things needed were given in the syllabus. However, the syllabus did say there may be additional things needed as the class progressed.
I did not like doing a quiz every week and listening to a more than an hour long lecture that sometimes did not answer the question.
nothing
I didnt like the course lectures very much. I liked the slides that went along with the voice lectures, however its hard to learn with just listening to his voice. I would have liked a written lecture where I could also read what we were learning, or even having a video of his talking (where we could see him and not just hear his voice) would have helped as well.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
i liked the course
Its my favorite class I've taken. I don't feel like the load of work was overwhelming and I feel like i've learned a lot that i wont forget because he is AWESOME about making sure the answers on the quizzes are answered clear, therefor I felt like I knew what I was learning and I wasn't always felling like I'm guessing my answers. I wish I could take all of my classes through him.
to much random material with no clear focus or purpose
This class was challenging and I had to work hard for my grade but I'm glad I went through this course. I will forever look at art differently. I thought an art class would be pretty easy but Mr. Nikou did not let me slack which shows me he really cares about me and he is very passionate about his work. He responded VERY quickly to all my questions and posted grade updates almost weekly which I loved!
Great professor, overall the lectures where clear, quizzes were easy if you followed the module list and went over the lectures, best thing about it is that you are able to pause, play and pause over and over again til you got an understanding of the lecture and took notes. I would highly suggest anyone who want to take art 101 to take Mr. Nikou
B+
D. needs improvement big time
I liked this course. It was fun and informative.
It was an okay course.
Great class, I would definitely recommend it to others
It was a good course and would suggest this class to other people, but inform them about the downfall of the lecture set up.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I think that although its an online course, and he does a recording of an actual class, maybe do a video of the class would really help. many times he's talking to the class and writing things on the black boards but the online class can't see what he's writing.
Not really sure if this is an issue on Mr. Nikou's part or an issue on my end but the audio couple of the weeks were not as clear as other weeks. I did bring this to his attention early and he did check on it and got back to on that. I also checked my volume on my laptop.
Great class
I took the online courses, so it would be nice of Marty to give us some reading material. Another way is to answer our emails.
either we read from the book or learn from proper lectures, this isn't what art is about.
I am not sure if this is necessarily an improvement. However, I really liked seeing examples of previous projects. Perhaps being able to see past works for the sketches (other than having to watch the entire videos over again) would be nice. A link, like the projects, in resources would have been nice.
We should have more physical art assignments. Less quiz and lecture.
The volume on the videos was quite soft even with the volume turned up.
I would improve this course by adding or changing the form of lecture, because its hard to learn (for some students) by ONLY listening to the lecture. I would suggest a written lecture to read, or a video of the professor talking.
27. Other comments:
none
I enjoyed the opportunity to learn under the guide of Mr. Nikou; he is a great asset to the University!
none
Moana Nikou is an excellent professor and makes this class really informative and fun. Even taking this class online, it still felt very interactive thanks to his videos and slides.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Learning how to use my dslr and all of its functions. Like depth of field, shutter speed and, ISO.
The aspects that I like the best of this course is that Prof. Nikou encourages his students to go outside and do activities in public. This is an interesting class that students can enjoy the views around them through their camera.
He is willing to spend extra time during office hours to give us advice on our work.
Being that I am very passionate about photography, this course allowed me to learn and improve more skills and techniques. I liked how there were weekly projects based on techniques we've learned to practice our newfound knowledge.
I learned a lot about my camera and how to use it properly. Also more about the mechanics of it and how it functions and in doing so made the camera a great tool for art.
The artistic freedom and ability to make our own choices of subject.
Taking so many photograph of different subjects.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I enjoyed all of the projects Mr. Nikou assigned to the class.
I can't think of any that i would not like about this course.
-none-
Due dates were kind of weird as they were actually due the night before the day of class but he was flexible on the deadlines most times.
That we only had time to shoot so many photos.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
ART 107D(0): Intro to Digital Photography class was an excellent experience for me. I learned a lot from this course, and I became a pretty good photographer thank you Mr. Nikou!
This is an interesting course that I think everyone should take. It encourages me to go outside and take picture of people in public which I always afraid before because I thought people in public would feel uncomfortable if someone is pointing the camera at them. But after the excursion, I see that most people are very friendly so I can take pictures of them without any trouble.
excellent
This course was very enjoyable for me and Mr. Nikou allowed students to fully express our concerns and opinions.
Take it. It's a good art medium to learn and a fun class.
It's great, I loved every minute.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Nothing this course could not have been better!
I like the class as the way it is but it would be a little more interesting if students can use edit tools to edit and retouch their pictures so they would look more interesting.
More class excursions would be nice to improve this course. Also, being able to work more in the studio would be nice.
Not much to improve. He was pretty explanatory on the techniques and aspects of the projects he wanted.
If everyone was more enthusiastic this would be more fun!
27. Other comments:
Really great class learned a lot about photography and cameras.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked learning about other great photographers.
-- snipped --
I liked the fact that he helped to teach me camera skills. This class helped retrain my eyes as to what I was focusing on in this world. He helped me open the aperture of my eyes and helped define clarity. He allowed us to be artistically innovative with our photo's and I am so glad I took this class. I liked the videos of previous artists. I liked the fact that he showed us that art is not just instantaneously done. It takes time and skill to prefect the art of photography but more so the art of looking.
I liked looking at my fellow students pictures and watching them grow along with me.
Taking pictures
Watching movies of other photographers.
I liked the whole course. I really appreciated the fact that Moana Nikou took the time to explain the subject and was available after class if you had additional questions. This class challenged me and I really enjoyed it.
Taking pictures
* Showing 7 out of 8 survey responses.

 

24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The aspect I least liked was how there was a culture of competition and inhibition which took away the students' motivation.

None
Looking at our pictures in class.
I disliked one of the projects which was taking pictures of random people in the streets of Waikiki however, it brought up my confidence level and am able to do it comfortably now.
nothing that I disliked about this course.
* Showing 5 out of 8 survey responses.

 

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was good and introduced me to the fundamentals of photography.
-- snipped --
I want to take this class again or enroll in a more advanced photo class. I really enjoyed learning from you. You genuinely care for your students and aware of each individuals learning capacity. You are aware to what may be offending to the class and at times you challenge their inner beliefs. Thank you. Thats what school is about anyways. To learn and pushed to do better. You cant be a better person without shedding things that were once you. You motivated me to do just this. I am growing and learning who I am and your class helped to focus my eyes.
I feel like I could have learned more from this class had there not been favortism and if it had a more in depth schedule of material. The little bit that I did learn was exciting and I found myself wanting to learn more without a direction to go in.
Good
Good.
Outstanding. I would love to take it again.
Good course, perfect for beginners in photography.
* Showing 7 out of 8 survey responses.

 

26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This class could be improved by encouraging more critical and creative thinking and self expression.
-- snipped --
More class discussion. Do a write up on the pictures. Why you took it, what method, speed, etc. and have it prepared before going to class. I also think the photography department should help with events.... the pictures for the STAR awards were taken by....... people who didnt care about the quality of the picture. They should take your class or we can create a photography club.
If we spent more time in the photography studio, I feel like it would be helpful to help develop our skills. If we spent more time learning the basics of good photography instead of just taking pictures. If we were given more positive feedback instead of just negative feedback from the professor.
I don't see anywhere it can improve.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I really like the sketchbook projects and the art work projects.
The projects were fun
I had to take this course in order to graduate....in a few more weeks!! I really enjoyed the opportunity to express my limited artistic abilities in a number of different mediums. I found painting very relaxing. Who knew?
I'm not really an artsy person, and being that this is a DE class, I didn't know what to expect as far as "art" assignments, but I really enjoyed myself. I like that he gives us enough time to complete assignments and that he provides us with a videos of how to execute assignments and also gives us examples of past students assignments for an idea of how to complete our own.
His lectures were engaging and keeps you interested in the subject. This class a was fun and I got to learn so much on art and the history of it.
Projects
I enjoyed watching short movie clips of different cultures showing the different styles of art they used.
Projects and sketchbooks
His lectures and slideshows are very well organized.
I really liked the test format. The class projects were really fun and interesting too!
I really enjoyed doing the projects and sketchbook assignments. If it were not for this class I don't think I would ever try do do such assignments. I really enjoy doing arts so this class really helped me to think outside the box and use my creativity.
I enjoyed doing the actual art projects and sketchbook assignments.
This class enforced me to think and constantly pick my brain.
Professor Nikou made this class clear and too the point.
The instructor was very knowledgable about the history of art. I learned a lot of thing about the beginnings of art that I was unaware of
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Sitting in forn of the computer for hours listening to a lectures.
The lectures were long and boring
The online format of separate picture and audio programs. Often times the jpeg slides did not correspond to the lecture, or they were missing. I would have preferred a more traditional power point format.
I only thing I disliked was that I had to click back and forth into computer windows to play/pause the slideshow and audio for the lectures.
n/a
Accent
-- snipped --
reading and lecture. it was too much
Writing an essay about a video related to this course. I didn't have time to do this part.
I really wasn't a fan of the really long lectures and slide shows.
I felt at times some of the modules were unclear. I had to email the professor for more information.
Although the lectures helped to complete quizzes and exams, it was quite lengthy, with watching videos, listening to lectures and slides. It took a great deal of time, which was okay, considering this is a distance learning course. The lectures were a bit hard to follow, especially when it got to the Romans and Greeks. I had a hard time following because I had very little knowledge of the rulers and their significance with art. However, I did learn.
None.
I would forget to complete the quizzes sometimes
* Showing 13 out of 14 survey responses.

 

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I would tell other students to take his class. It is very interesting and you learn a lot about different styles of art.
It's a good couse
I learned something, so it was a beneficial course.
I really enjoyed this course. It's different from the classes that I usually take, and I found it relaxing for a change.
Excellent
Good
It was fair and I enjoyed it having as a online class. It really fit into my schedule.
I liked it, it was fun but I just thought that the amount of reading and lecture clips were a lot for a 100 level class.
Clarity of presentation/lecture - Excellent
It is a wonderful class!!
I would recommend this class to others just because this I really enjoyed the art projects and sketchbook assignments. I also liked how we had to turn in weekly assignments, that really kept me on my toes and in tune with what is going on. I had no chance of falling behind, which is a good thing.
I enjoyed this course. Mr. Nikou is very knowledgeable.
AWESOME!
This class was a good online course to take. Professor is nice and the work load is understandable. Not too difficult.
Ver good
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
No so many lectures to listen to. Not so long lectures.
Be more orgnanized with the lectures. Make the finals easier.
Change the online format.
The slideshow and audio slides, are about the only thing that I think can be improved about this course.
This course is designed perfectly for the subject.
Can't think of anything
I feel this course could be improved by having less quizes and more art projects.
This course (online) could be improved by combining the lecture slides with the lecture audio. It would be much easier for students to see exactly what you are talking about instead of wondering when we should switch to a next slide.
I think that the slide clips on laulima needed to be dealt with better. I couldn't open them on my laptop. I also felt like the amount of lecture and reading could have been cut considerably.
I think if there was a video lecture instead of audio so you can see what the teacher is writing on the board and talking about in the lectures that we only hear in this online audio lecture.
The assignments could be a little clearer as to how to do them and when they are due. More modules should be opened at a time so that we can go ahead and do some work ahead of time. That would be a big help to many of us students.
I don't think that there is any improvement needed. Although the lecture were lengthy, I believe it is necessary to teach students art and its history.
No changes.
27. Other comments:
Just the long lectures i would change other than that it was a really good class
I loved this class Mr. Nikou is a great teacher and was always available when I had a question or a comment. I look forward to taking another of his art classes.
I enjoyed it.
Great class! Should be required for all HCC students!

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I love the sketchbook assignments and projects!
Nikou was very organized and prepared
I really liked that Mr. Nikou was passionate about his subject and that made me want to listen. Plus there was a lot about the arts that I had no idea about. I loved learning about stuff I never knew :)
I like it how he responses quickly to all my questions and if i need help about the class. He is very through and a great art instructor.
i like all the sketches that we had to do.
NOTHING. I enjoyed everything up until I actually talked to him.
I thoroughly enjoyed the links to You tube, viewing additional movies that were directly applicable to the course subject. I used the rewind and pause extensively which helped me capture all the points of discussion.
Professor Nikou was very organized and clear about everything.
You were able to do hands on work in an online class.
I like that the instructor is clear and set about the schedules. Even if this is an online class, Nikou responds to e-mails quickly and is always providing with great details. He strongly encourage to ask questions. I also like the projects! They're really fun.
There is nothing I gained or took out of this course.
I liked the way the whole course was set up. Professor Nikou was very organized with his lectures and slides. He responded to emails very quickly.
I enjoyed how he stayed perfectly on schedule with everything.
Mr. Nikou was well-organized having links to each weeks work.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The long lectures. Some of the slides for visuals are not working.
Nothing to really complain about :) I really enjoyed this class!
nothing everything was great.
Everything, especially the professor.
The slides and audio lecture were separate files, they had to be opened and managed independent of each other. I would have preferred the lecture and slides to be in the form of a movie, filmed during the live lecture.
Professor Nikou could have communicated better whenever a question came up.
No class discussions.

Excellent class, awesome teacher, responds to emails very quickly and is always available for help !
excellent.
is 10/1o
-- snipped --
Mr. Nikou was extremely encouraging. The content and main points were clear and easy to understand. I learned that I could produce works of art, something I never believed I could achieve.
Excellent, loved the class, planning on taking more classes from Professor Nikou.
Enjoyable and learned a lot.
I like this online class. I like the projects and the lessons. The professor is awesome!
-- snipped --
I really enjoyed this course. Love the sketchbook assignments and the projects.
Great class, learned a lot.
My overall evaluation of this course is very great. Assignments and lectures were easily seen and accessible.

26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Maybe Mr Nikou can add some powerpoint slides for the lectures. It'll be helpful in case the video slides are not working.
I think maybe Nikou's questions on the quizzes could be worded better. Also, he tends to fumble his words when speaking.
This course could be improved if instead of slides and audio were put together or be like a video footage.
everything is perfect.
Get a new professor for this course. Make sure the teachers are from America and know how to speak English properly.
Filming the lecture vice slides and separate audio files.
Professor Nikou could have communicated better with the students whenever they had a question. The audio from the lectures could have been different, more reading from the textbook/ONLINE rather than listening to a hard to hear lecture.
It was unclear what the actual due dates of the assignments were. According to the syllabus it appeared all assignments would be due before the midterm or final, but in the grade book, they had due dates.
I believe that this course does not need any improvement.
-- snipped --
Have the assignments submitted under assignments that way we can get feedback from every assignment.
There's really no way to improve this course.
This course could be improved by having updated slides to match the lecture.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked how the instructor would post instructional videos to follow when doing assignments. This was very helpful to see!
Online courses are hard to track and follow along when you have issues outside the online course. His knowledge of art and it's history helps me a lot today when dealing with my sociology work.
Class was extremely well organized for an online class. Teacher had great lectures and slides. He was extremely knowledgeable. I like a lot.
That the class only lasts a month, and that there was plenty of opportunity for Extra Credit, and that the class was based off the lectures more than the textbook, although he did cover what the textbook had to say, but he made it more understandable.
I liked that the course was a fast pace and it helped me understand the art world better, in many different ways.
I enjoyed the online lectures the best.
I really enjoyed learning about the history of art. I was amazed by how I took for granted pieces of artwork simply because I did not understand the piece or because I never tried to observe the piece of work.
The history of Art
Although, I have not been the best and will most likely be enrolled in this class again, it was the ability to receive direct feedback from the instructor, when question or concern arose.
The essays were clear and to the point.
Learning about art
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I felt that there was a lot of assignments to do on top of the weekly quizzes. It was hard to keep up with everything.
The course needs to be longer because then it allows the students to focus more and not have to rush things as far as getting quizzes done in a timely manner.
There was not enough time to truly appreciate the subject. When the class only lasts a month we did not get to ponder any specific subject at any great length.
n/a
I dislike the readings assignments.
I was a little confused in trying to keep up with the slides and audio separate being that it was an online course I thought it would've been easier to articulate.
nothing
Sometimes video would freeze or pause with certain links.
The lectures were a bit hard to follow since they weren't done directly for us but a physical class instead.
Having to ask questions
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I felt that this class was fun and enjoyable. I learned a lot through his audio lectures and videos.
The course isn't bad at all but i won't be taking online courses again. Too much of time is needed on this course. I have a family so my priorities needs to be focused on them too. If the course was longer then I wouldn't have a problem with it.
good!
Excellent.
Overall the course does help introduce students to different art forms, the history behind art, and the cultures that help form art and the art that forms cultures.
that it was well organized. I was able to understand directions well and follow through.
Due to emotional situations, I was not able to continue the course and
95% I enjoyed this art course online & would recommend other students to take it as well. Although, I am located on a different island Marty communicated effectively with me via email.
The reason I signed up for the course was because it was considered a Writing Intensive course. But overall I really enjoyed listening, watching the videos and slides. I feel I learned a great deal from this class.
This course is a high pace organized course and one must stay dedicated in order to be successful in completion.
7 of out 10 mainly because I think the lecture would be improved in terms of presentation. The content was fine but the presentation was lacking.
He is a good teacher and knows a lot. Explains concepts well.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I think the amount of quizzes could be less.
The course needs to be longer and quizzes need to be shorter. It needs to focus more on design rather than history.
Thought class was great. Tough in summer school because so much work and projects in a short period of time.
Making the web files more PC friendly would definitely have improved my experience with the class.
n/a
There could be a entire chat room for all the online class members. If there was a room specifically made for chatting, that could have been cool.
I would suggest powerpoint along with the lecture to organize the slides with the audio.
nothing
IĆ¢??m aware that there are other students in the course, but felt alone in the completion of the material, perhaps it might be beneficial for a required classmate discussion group, which can be encouraging when receiving comments from fellow classmates.
Integrate the audio and video slides in one. Maybe if needed, redo the ones that are a big vague and off topic. Highlight the key areas in every video and lecture.
Writing a research paper about art is hard because it is absolutely impossible to find any credible online sources in journals. If we need to do research then we should be told what are considered credible sources and what databases to use.
27. Other comments:
thank you teacher!
Loved his lectures. They were great.
Marty Nikou is a great instructor. I would pick his class again. Answers emails quickly, and creates a great internet class. Thank you professor!
n/a
Thanks for allowing me to enroll late, the motivation you gave and hopefully you will allow me to retake this course in the future.
This was a great class / course. For the most part I enjoyed it. My only concern is the presentation of the material.
Overall he is a good teacher, but he research project needs to be improved. Perhaps there should be some recommended websites or databases that students have access to. If I were a frshmen in college I would have no idea on how to look for credible sources.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed all aspects of the course
I enjoyed doing the acrylic art project. It has been a long time since I've picked up a paint brush!
The creative aspect that the teacher creates a conducive atmosphere for.
Hands on with different types of projects
All aspects were good.
The assignments. I enjoyed sketching and seeing the artistic improvements in just a few weeks.
I really liked all the art projects
Learning art history and some of the art projects (painting). The deadlines (although unclear) were pretty lenient and we were given ample time to complete them.
I enjoyed the art sketches and projects. Although the expectation of quality work was expected, I did not feel pressured into doing something great and artistic especially because I have no experience.
IT was easy to stay on track as the shcedule is consitent and timely
Everything about this class were great.
I learned not only art, but about religions, cultures, and societies in this course.
I liked exploring my artistic creativity and learning about art history.
doing the projects
At first, I thought I needed to take Art class because it requires for my major; however,I enjoyed drawing for in this class, even if I was not a good drawer. I also liked how Professor Nikou encourages his class that it's not necessary for everyone to have a good piece of art, as long as everyone put an effort on their work. In that case, it helped me to relieved my stress because I know I'm not a good artist.
The examples
Freedom to create arts, this helps students to create new forms of arts.
Aspects of the course that I liked best included the allowance of self expression and creativity through art projects.
the course was on-line
I liked the fact that the instructor didn't put pressure on us to turn out professional art pieces. He allowed us to do our best and bring out our own creative ways.
doing the Hands on art projects
N/A
I loved the hands on projects. Even though this was an online class, Moana still encouraged students to do good on their projects. He was also flexible with assignments because he understood how much work was needed to put into it. Although I did enjoy how much he thoroughly explained the subject matter to the best of his ability.
That it was online.
Projects
I did learn alot in this course. I do love art, and taking an art history class was one of my goals in my college career. It makes me realize how much I do love learning about art. I really liked Moana Nikous organization of the course. He was on point and gave great direction to the course. I also enjoyed the length given for the final. I thought that gave me a more time to correct and put more thought and input into my essays. I think all professors should do what Moana Nikou did. It helps the student put more effort into the work.
I liked how with each section that we went through in the book, Mr. Nikou would explain what had to be done, gave both visual and audio directions/lectures.
Detailed explanations were asked in regards to paintings on our mid term. No explanation was given as to how long the explinations needed to be.
Easily understandable from instructor.
Hands on art work.
Very educational and Nikou gave great examples
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Reading
I enjoyed drawing and giving myself a creative canvas.
Reading
Nothing.
The exams questions were somewhat confusing. I wasn't positive how much detail to give. It might be helpful to give a word count and more direction for the desired material on exams.
Nothing
I think we had too many art projects to do. And the instructions for most of the assignments were unclear. I did bring this up to Moana's attention, but I got a snark remark on how I didn't have to do it if I had already done it in the previous section. The deadlines were confusing.
-- snipped --
I could view many videos from my home so I had to watch those videos using library facilities
Nothing
The lectures, I am taking the DE course and maybe taping his actual class might have been more visual than seeing slides.
Some lectures were extra long
-- snipped --
I think we should of have a discussion under Laulima.
not being able to do some art work again to show improvement.
The aspect I liked least about the course was the lack of outline provided for each video. Instead of presenting student with keywords maybe inclusion of direction towards the learning concept is better. Some of the videos were long and did not 100% relate towards the main topics given.
-- snipped --
listening to alot of different lectures
N/A
Some of the weekly assignments were unclear and a little unorganized. Due dates for the assignments were set and therefore I was left a little confused.
The visual aids were small on my computer screen which made them sometimes difficult to view. Not enough examples of former art projects that I was able to view.
-- snipped --
I have taken many online courses (over ten courses). I did find the format for this class to bit a bit difficult, however it is an online course and I do understand that it is a bit more difficult. For some reason my MAC computer could not open many files so I would have to switch from computer to computer. Thus during the last two projects I learned that there were student examples which indeed were quite helpful but I do however wish I learned how to do this before hand. I did spend quite a bit of money on materials which included buying the textbook, the clay, the paints, the paintbrushes, the photographs, the clay tools, the wire, the canvas, the sketch book, the pencils, oil pastels, and the illustration board ( which was $10 at Ben Franklin & $3 at KCC). And in the end all of that ADDS up for a poor college student. Although I did have some materials from previous art classes in high school I did think that the materials that I needed to buy was a bit excessive. I would also enjoy feedback from my art.. I think that's the best way to improve and grow from learning from others. But if feedback was given in our dropbox about what we could improve on, what we did well, etc. That would be fabulous.
The sculpting project out of all assignments was my least favorite.
Learning about cave art
N/a
Reading out of the book; for me it was hard to understand.
It can be a little bit of a large load
* Showing 24 out of 28 survey responses.

 

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
educational and creative
I enjoyed this course it brought the art side out of me again.
I enjoyed this course a lot and it improved my art skills a lot.
Very satisfied with all the things I learned with art
Excellent.
Great! Marty Nikou is an excellent professor. He is extremely helpful and always encouraging. I enjoyed this class most because of him.
I thought overall it is a great class, and I learned a lot.
I was really pumped to be taking Art because I love all things art, especially art history. But I was only left disappointed and pretty much regretting that I had taken this course. I really wanted to enjoy this class, but I couldn't. The instructions and the assignments were confusing. All in all, art is usually my favorite course, but this one has just really turned me off from taking any online art classes from HCC.
I enjoyed this class very much. I responded well to Mr. Nikou's teaching style. He does a very good job explaining the material in his lectures.
awesome
I would recommend other students to take this Art class. This Art class has opened my eyes to new things. I certainly enjoy this class very much.
Good class
Very fun and interesting
excellent
My overall evaluation of this course is that I enjoyed this class so much and I am happy that Professor Nikou appreciates my art work even if I'm not a good artist.
very interesting and fun
This course is pretty decent. I learned a lot of new things.
This course was informative and a good introduction to the arts. I know I am not artistic and creative.
it is a very interesting course that I enjoyed.
N/A
It good if students wish to explore their artistic sides and learn about the history of art.
It is a very interesting class, and I learned a lot of history as well as about art.
Okay
It's a great course. Learned a lot, his listening lectures also give a lot of insight and is really helpful.
I really enjoyed learning about art and art history. It gave me the strength to draw again.
Very well taught and easily understandable from instructor.
8 out of a 10. I enjoyed taking an online art course but honestly i'd much rather take one in a classroom environment because i would rather have a hands on instructor.
Good course it is easy to tell that Professor Nikou is very passionate about his job.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I think having a weekly discussion forum would benefit students and help them get a better understanding of the course material. students could be broken up into groups and each week the group is assigned a topic on which they are to write a short discussion post. Students would not only learn about their topic but they could read other groups topics as well to help them learn.
The course could be improved by having a simpler weekly guideline. There were so many different assignments to complete during one week.
This course can be improved by improving the online interactive system.
This class could be improved in the drawing part of the class. We could of did more drawing instead of reading and watching movie clips.
The laulima portal needs to be fixed. Also a one time password entry for viewing the homework should be implemented instead of a day by day entry system.
I think the course was straight forward. Not much room for improvement.
Less art projects. More focus on art history and class discussions online.
Partial essay and multiple question exams. Updated information/instructions on the class website.
No suggestions
Nothing
Make it clear who is in the regular unit and who is in the writing intensive unit
I thought this course was fine. Maybe an improvement could be a chance to do things more than once to show improvement.
The projects could be broken down like the sketch book assignments. I suggest taking a few general pictures that led up to Project 3's picture collage. Or making a cube with plaster, some simple task that allows students to work with the medium first before going into a big project in an "all or nothing" sense.
This course can be improved in not having class lectures that are recorded because it's hard to imagine and identify with. Lecture's could be shorter and the slides that correspond could be more distinct.
N/A
Better (larger) visual images. Better explanation and examples of art projects.
Clear instructions
More feedback and buying less materials would help this course to be improved.
1.) The deadlines are sometimes hard to reach, some weeks there are little assignments to do then the next week there is a whole bunch of work to do. 2.) The lectures should go into more detail from the book instead of a class discussion.
Be more specific with students and give explanations as to why they received the grade that they did
N/a
I think this course could be improved if the timeline sheet was way more understandable. For example, there was about two different due dates for certain things. Not to mention the surveys for each section was more than point less for me. I would have rather had an overall survey at the end of each project.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I really enjoyed the projects we did in class. All of the projects were very interesting and fun to do. I also somewhat enjoyed the lectures because they weren't monotonous, some were really fun to learn.
I liked how passionate Mr. Nikou is at teaching ART 101. He really goes the extra mile as a teacher to help the students understand the curriculum. I liked all the hands on activities the best though, it really let me imagination run free and allowed me to express myself through my work.
I really liked the projects that we did for the class because it really got my mind to work on what I wanted to interpret in my art. But, overall it was a fun experience.
I liked drawing and discussing our projects as a class. It really helped include the class in conversation and opened our minds to other ideas that are creative and kept the mind thinking.
The project grades were more based on the effort implemented into it, rather than how well it looks.
I like how he assign those art project to us. Because i had no idea I could actually create a master piece.
This art class was fun, although too much on historical information, we could've done more hands on art projects in class. I did really enjoy the informative films though, it was really educational.
I like how well versed Marty is about the historical context of art.
I like dong the projects and learning about how Art in general shaped the world and how some of it's old traditions popped up through out the years
The aspects of the course I liked the most were the hands-on projects and the reviews of arts from the years before.
The opportunity to use what little skills in the arts I have to express my individual mind.
The times when we were able to sketch in class are fun. Also, incorporating videos into his lectures.
Getting to express my inner emotions through my utencil on a blank canvas
The instruction and texts give students a basic understanding of art techniques. The instruction included the opportunity to use art medium.
I like how there are so much information's on the power points that presented,and the activities we've done on class.
generally learning all the material
I raelly like the fact that the instructor has a great depth of knowledge and love for the subject which is the most important thing with any teacher. Plus the fact that you give us so many opportunities for bonus points to get a good great and to learn more about the subject. I also appreciate the fact that you go over everything that's on the study guide and even repeat whats on there, not only that giving us a LOT of help for preparation for the exams. Great job Marty :)
I liked the art projects, and the resources that were available, such as online reviews and study guides.
flexibility
Making my own art
I loved how the online course material was formatted. It was very easy to follow and rarely did I ever feel unconnected or lost in the course.
I like watching the videos and doing the hands on work. I enjoyed it very much.
I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT! IT WAS A VERY FUN YET CHALLENGING COURSE!
I liked the incorporation of completing art assignments as well as lectures regarding art. Mr. Nikou is informative and easy to listen to.
I liked the fact that we could visit and revisit each lesson at our own pace, which is the whole point of distance education, i guess, but Marty (Moana) made it easy for us to access the information we needed to know through both recorded class review sessions and through Laulima videos and lectures.
I liked the flexibility of the on-line class. I also liked that the lectures were available on-line. My other on-line classed did not have this available and I found it very helpful in understanding the material.
The lectures and videos helped me under stand the reading.
Doing the actual project works
The instructor's use of multiple teaching methods online was the most advanced in an online class that I have ever experienced.
I enjoyed the videos/links and our professor going over
Being able to work on art at your own pace and being able to create art the way you want, not having someone tell you what you exactly have to do
Opportunities to expand class experience through extra credit assignments. Involvement of physical creation of art projects to support class objectives.
I really enjoyed learning about the History of art.
visual aspect hands on groupwork
The clips of the movies, and the in class activities.
Doing some of the art projects in class.
What I liked about the course the most was the fact that we all were in control of our grade. It was up to us whether or not if we wanted to do the work or not, and he always encouraged us to do extra credit work to make the grade of the student better. He is a very good lecturer.
The use of a lot of visual aids and how they were easy to access on the internet. I enjoyed doing the small hands on projects as well.
I liked the drawing, but not necessarily getting up in front of the class, and telling them why I chose what I did. I liked the videos also. The are so many chances for extra credit, there is no reason why everyone should not pass. Great professor.
I enjoyed being in both writing intensive and art class and being given the option to stay and participate in the art aspect of the class time.
I enjoyed learned the history of art, the different centuries and how art differs.
The art timetable kept me organized and on track. I knew when the sketchbook assignments and art projects were due ahead of time, as well as when there would be a test. Having the assignments listed by sections and available at all times was helpful. It allowed me to look back at previous videos and lectures or preview what was coming up in the next section. I felt that it let me work at a steady pace. The art review sections were great. Although I was not able to attend any of the Blackboard meetings, they made this course feel more like an actual college class.
Hands on art projects
The extra credit video essays
The different art project/assignments we had.
It was on-line
This course allowed be to become more creative and amde me realize what I was capable of. Overall, I really enjoyed taking this class.
Marty is a very good teacher and makes the material fun to learn.
the projects. I have found new hobbies!
The course give me a broad overview of various type of art in a systematic way. The course help me to explain to a non-art person why the thing I am seeing is beautiful, what I am looking at. It also give me a new perspective with the art I am very familiar with.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
-- snipped --
The least I liked were the lectures, but as time progressed throughout the course I started realizing that I needed to pay close attention to what is discussed in order to pass the exams.
-- snipped --
-- snipped --
Some of the art projects shocked me a little bit. I was not prepared to spend money out of class to buy canvases, and photographs, or even a portfolio. I'm not much of an artsy hands on person so doing project number 3 was a little difficult for me. Also, it was hard to get out of work, and school to go to a museum for project 4.
Too much talking.. And the material for the art project was a little pricy.
He embarasses you when you give the wrong answers in class room participations.
None.
None.

Some of his lectures were just uninteresting, but probably because it was on subjects that I wasn't interested in.
Nothing really. The class is just super quiet most of the time.
The classroom isn't setup well for the number of students.

i Would say the whole learning of the origin of the different styles of paintings come from
There wasn't really anything I disliked honestly, the instructor made almost sound interesting. Don't really have suggestions for improvements.

I do not have anything to say I did not like, besides the writing, but that is required by the school.
I felt being rushed to speak when it was my turn but not uncomfortable.
I actually enjoyed this course very much.
The only challenge for me was the Blackboard meeting time, but I understood that it might be more convenient for a majority of the other students as well as the instructor. It was fortunate that the sessions could be viewed at later times.

I thought it was a challenge that the only way you can get an A in the course is by getting a perfect score on all tests and submitting all work. Lots of extra credit were offered.

Having the purchase so many materials for all the assignments and projects when on a tight budget.

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Awesome! Recommend it to everybody if they ever need a class that's fun.
It's a good course to take whether it's a prerequisite, major or to just take up a class. It's really interesting and you do learn a lot through just one semester.
It was very interesting and fun. He really explains things in detail and gets into it with the history of art. Gives A LOT of extra credit.
Two thumbs up.. I learned a lot in this class and I believe this art class is worth taking especially because I feel that it broadens your understanding of art more than you assumed it would.
Art 101 (Introduction to Visual Arts) with Moana Nikou has been an enjoyable experience. The project instructions/procedures are crystal-clear and the exams are not difficult whatsoever, unless one hasn't been paying attention during the lectures.
This class is useful for those who are into history and art.
Very informative, he does give positive constructive critisms for you art work presentations which actually motivates you.
Good class if you like feeling-based art
Awesome
I liked this course a lot because the professor is always on task and he makes sure he lectures clearly.
Overall this course was educational, and some what interesting.
A great introduction to art class. He covered a lot throughout the semester and I learned a lot as well.
Very interesting andf fun class.
Very good.
my overall evaluation of this course was alright. I would recommend this class to my friends.
it was an interestingly fun course.
Awesome class. Awesome teacher!!!! Makes learning art fun and opened my eyes to a different way upon looking at art.
Being someone who loves art, this course was great for me. Other than the long lectures, I enjoyed the fact that I was able to express myself through various projects/assignments.
neutral
It was an interesting subject but i am glad it is over
I wish I had more time.
I would recommend taking this online course to anyone who feels like they already know a good deal about art basics.
This class was easy to follow and i enjoyed the time and work i have done for this class.
RECOMMENDTO ALL STUDENTS
The course is a good foundation for ART101 and Mr. Nikou is a good teacher and lecturer.
i really had fun doing the projects and learning about some of rich history art has behind it.
excellent
Good
I enjoyed it!
I enjoyed the course it was very informative.
Great course and one of the best online classes I have taken. Fun way to learn art and create your own art pieces.
I would recommend this course to other people.
good i enjed it
Overall a good class if interested in the study and creation of Art.
that this class was a little tough to get through.
It was a good course and I would recommend this course to a friend if he or she was interested in learning about art and history.
I would recommend this course for those interested in working on the different areas. I wouldn't recommend this class as a writing intensive class. Taking it as a writing intensive is boring.
Felt like he had a chip on his shoulder
My overall evaluation of this course is okay, would have liked to do more drawing, but because I was WI, I could not; which is okay because I did not want to have to do double work.
That this teacher clearly loves the subject he is teaching and you could learn a lot if you take the time and willing to spend time to speak up when you are given the chance to when you need clarity.
I would recommend this course to other students looking to fulfill the writing intensive requirement for their degree.
I enjoyed this course. The course site was easy to navigate, assignments and instructions for projects were clear, the lectures and videos were interactive, the instructor was helpful, and review sessions allowed me to understand the content clearly.
Great! Mr. Nikon is a great art instructor
Very good!
highy recommend this course to anyone
it was good
At first I was nervous about taking this course because I have no artistic background. After taking this course, my eyes have been opened to more possibilities and I am now aware of more potentials that I have.
I really liked it!
he is a great teacher. I feel i have learned a lot this semester. :)
I think this class was a great class...very fun and interesting. Professor Nikou was very helpful and answered any question you had right away if by email. I learned a lot from this class.
Very informative, I am glad I took this course here. I had seen art museums around the world, this course does help me to appreciate the other side of track I tend to shun away from.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
-- snipped --
It could be improved by making more projects rather than movie reports. Having the freedom to do the movie report without a set deadline is frustrating because we watch movie clips at least once or twice a class and it piles up.
It would have been nice to have more activities as a class at the end of the lecture to discuss what we learned from the lecture to help better understand it. Also, I would have enjoyed a fieldtrip together as a class rather than independently for our last project. It would have been much more helpful learning about the Museum through our instructor.
Change project 4 to something hands on.
The only improvement worth mentioning is the importance of the textbook for the course could be stressed a bit more.
More Art project so student can be creative.
N/A
This course is fun and all, but sometimes there's just too many information to consume at once. Maybe a little more hands-on it'd be great. But all in all, it was a great course.
One way that this course could improve is to add more opportunities to create art. Bigger art project. The second way it can improve is by keeping the lights on.
Have guest speakers come in and present to the class. Take a class trip to a museum.
More examples could be taught in the form of activities. Maybe to give a clearer understanding to some.
A classroom that could accomodate a horseshoe setup would suit Mr. Nikou's presentations better.
We should do more activity or other ways to learn about the history and the important thing in art.
None really
More hands on learning. Find various ways to understand art history as there is a lot to know.
-- snipped --
I really think this course is fine as is.
NOTHING!!
-- snipped --
I honestly don't feel any improvement would be necessary
Separate the writing intensive course tasks better. Quicker grade feedback would be helpful.
I think there isn't anything to improve and the professor has a good teaching system for this class where anyone can learn art from home
Cumulative point score available for review on a consistent basis
-- snipped --
More in class activities.
This course can be improved by allowing more time to work on essays during class. Also, the grading and rubric of the essays could be more easier for students to match with the professor.
I honestly dont know how this course could be improved.
More journal writing for WI students. Try separating the WI class and the regular Art 101 classes so that the instructor has more time with working with students. Field trips to art exhibits and museums.
different teacher
The course could be improved with more drawing in the class instead of lectures. I enjoyed the drawing, I would have liked to learn how to draw better, instead of taking it home for extra credit.
This class overall was pretty good and I see no improvement at this time.
If I were taking just the art course I would want there to be more hands on art pratice in class.
This course was my first online course, so I don't really have anything to compare it to. I think the course is well designed and organized. It met and exceeded my expectations.
The website layout for assignments could be much clearer
Space the projects/sketches out better.

None. Thank you!
I feel Professor Marty explains his course well and I enjoyed the slide and recorded session.
It would be nice to have a day off so that we could visit the Honolulu Museum of art. I don't know about other people but I work on the days that I don't have class. So finding the time to visit the museum is a little difficult.

fun class, i would definitely take another course instructed by Mr. Nikou.
I do a lot of digital art works, took a lot of digital art, movie making courses. And I very much enjoy to relearn all the fundamentals in a new perspective this course has to offer.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Professor Nikou gave the class a lot of room to be creative with our photograph projects. We also shared photos with classmates.
The class is very helpful and fun. I am very confident to taking pictures after learning a lot of skills from the teacher.
The freedom to take pictures of what we want.
the aspects i like the best was getting to know my classmates more, and seeing other peoples work. it shows me how i can improve more on my photos!
The aspects of the course i liked best was taking photos on campus. It allowed us to get an experience before the actual product. Also, sharing our photos in class helped to get feedback on what the other classmates think of your work.
The instructor was very passionate about the subject he was teaching and also cared deeply for the students' overall improvement. Marty had high expectations for his students.
Professor Nikou explained and demonstrated how to control my camera using the three main aspects. I believe that alone made the class worth it.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
We didn't get to spend much time outside of the classroom to practice shooting photos.
i think this class is awesome and i would tell my friend about taking this class.
Nothing.
the aspects i dislike the least was my portfolio! i was having a hard time finding the right photos to print, and some of my photos was under expose!
The aspects i liked least was nothing.
Nothing. This course was a chosen elective in a field that I found interesting. Everything was good in this class.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This is a great course taught by a very experienced professor. I strongly feel that taking this course has improved my photography skills.
I am very pleased and happy to choose this class. We had a lot of homework but i feel very fun and excited to finish the works.
10/10! Good stuff!
I think this course is great. It allowed us to work hands on and allowed us to think for ourselves.
Excellent!
a must take course if you want to understand your camera in a friendly and open environment.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
More photo shooting practice in class.
it would be fun if we can pick one or two classmates to do group project. Thus, we can help each other taking picture and learn from each other
It would be nice to go on more field trips. More hands on experience.
Maybe a little bit more campus photography or excursions.
Need more time to do projects, although it was helpful to have earlier deadlines to prevent procrastination.
It could be set a later time. 8:30am is early. As for the actual course, it was set up perfectly.
27. Other comments:
No additional comments.
I would consider taking another photography class from Marty, if I had the time and money.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Overall I liked everything about his class. His lecture was clear and inspiring and all of the projects he assigned were interesting.
the projects
The hands on projects.
i really enjoyed the projects we did throughout the semester. Art 101 was the only class that i have that has projects. i also like how we were able to paint and learn different techniques in the process
The making of art.
Projects that we had to do was fun and interesting. Mr. Moana Nikou didnt matter too much of the appearance of our projects as long as we took our quality time and effort to finish up project by deadlines.
I liked the fact that we were able to be creative.
I like about doing the projects, and drawing in class and outside of class. Doing something new such as painting, taking pictures for abstracts and doing sculpture showing in motion.
I enjoyed learning about the Greeks and their knowledge of architecture. It applied to the things I am learning in my architectural class. One example was the Pantheon, which was originally known as the first building structure shaped as a dome.
I liked the projects that we did.
The joy of this class, I really happy that I take this class. I learn so many new things for the teacher. He is very enthusiasm.
I liked how our Mr. Nikou is very talkative. He brings great energy to the class room even though most of us are extremely tiered. Except that one time were he was sick but that doesnt really count. And he made good use of movie clips that apply to what ever we're studying
Everything discussed is open for students to add input or ask questions. Vast knowledge of art is taught in an interesting and very welcoming manner as a student.
I liked how it was more about the history of art instead of actually creating art.
the hands on activities. i also enjoyed learning the history of art and the many components that make up art.
I liked the projects and the lectures were fun
I liked the 'in class' projects.
The hands on parts where we got to actually draw, paint, or sculpt something.
Mr. Nikou always contributed his energy and positive attitude to each class. His theatrical way of teaching brought life to the class. Questions are welcomed and answered properly. His grading scale is fair, and tests aren't ridiculously difficult, but still challenges you.
i really liked martys lectures. Especially in the beginning of the semester the way he word things and his ideas are very thought provoking. The lectures throughout the semester really felt short even thought some where an hour long. I like his way of showing a video before he starts a lecture it gets me thinking and it also prepares for us for the lectures he is about to present. I really like that he doesnt grade you on how good of an artist you are but he grades you if you meet the criteria that is in the syllabus. That was a relief because i am not a good artist but i am intrigued by art.
The aspects of the course that I liked the best were when we would watch video clips that related to the topic and helped us understand it more, when the whole class would participate in the hands on activities during class, and the extra credit quizzes that were given to help benefit our understanding even more.
I really enjoyed his lectures that were given during class sessions. They were very informative. The pictures and examples that he showed of previous students' work were great for those in the regular NON-WI course. I was in the WI course, but I feel that the student's artwork from previous semesters was a major help.
I like how the instructor encourage students to get involved with the class discussions.
What I like best about this course is the presence of the class. Every student were active when it comes to discussions and answering questions.
learning about the art from different periods of time. it makes me look back about my history class and freshens my mind
Doing artworks! I thought I already know everything about art, but Nikou introduced me to his own view and interpretation of art.
i liked doing the drawing and painting stuff.
His presentations are something to look forward too. Everyday is something different.
I like the presentations he gives to the class talking of the various materials on art. It is clear and precise, helping to give good understanding to the students.
I liked that we were given due dates and all of our WI assignments early on.
Although this was an online section Marty was always quick to reply to emails and his weekly help sessions were a great help. his course is well organized
Learning about art history
Very well organized.
That the professor was readily available for questions and responded quickly to emails.
Assignments
Very organized course and had fun projects! I like how the projects were not graded on quality, but whether or not you completed it correctly because everyone views art differently. It made me comfortable completing the projects...and for once, I enjoyed art! =)
I liked the hands on projects. I produced pieces that I thought I would never be able to do.
I liked online learning and listening on my own time.
I loved doing all the projects and the museum visit. I guess Art is more meaningful when it's a hands on experience.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Nothing at all
nothing
The powerpoint lectures. They were uninteresting.
the aspect of the coarse i liked least was the Art History part. i found it to be complex and difficult to understand.
Nothing.
none
I wish we would have had more projects.
what i like the least is the long lecture because i just want to do the other works.
I personally didn't like the projects that were involved in this class.
The lectures of the history of art kind of just flew right above my head, didn't understand one thing.
none
The art projects.
n/a
N/A
I didn't like the power point lectures.
The history was my least favorite parts of the course, but was still somewhat interesting.
None!
none.
I enjoyed this class overall. For the WI portion, I would like it if he were to explain the essay assignments more in depth, rather than just referring us to the WI course packet.
I did not really like how the writing intensive students and art students are combined together in one class.
N/A
Since I am a writing intensive student, I have no choice but to finish all my paper work. Honestly, I hated researching.
didn't like the writing portion
The fact that every single writing intensive student got a bad grade on their first paper and in order to get a better grade we would have to meet with him.
The quiz seemed very specific for covering such a broad subject, yet from studying the review sheet and listening to the lectures it was manageable.
nothing
That the grading system was not clearly expressed and although we were told we could get extra credit, we were not told exactly what qualified as extra credit. It was hard to figure out what exactly we were getting for credit as well.
Nothing really
Nothing!
I did not like the type of exams. I would like to see a final art project instead of a written final. I would like to see graded quizzes instead of large midterm and final exams
n/a.
Lots of reading, though the reading in itself was fun sometimes it was hard to find the time to read so much.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Perfect
really good course. fun and educational!
It is a good course to take to get exposed to different art mediums and works. I enjoyed it.
overall i have learned a lot of new material regarding art and various ways to express art not only in a painting but in other ways as well.
Good.
this class was interesting and a positive classroom atmosphere.
This was a good course.
A great class and great teacher that get you involve in many ways.
It was very informational, very broad. I learned more than just the history of art.
It was good only because we got to do hands on projects.
Excellent
Very fun class, we have many hands on oppertunities, watch many movie clips, and the lectures arnt to bad.
Great course, would suggest to friends. Will consider taking more art classes! Learn a ton of art concepts and artists in general.
Great course. However, I felt very rushed when it came to the time line of when projects started and when they were due.
this is a great introductory class to art. it's fun yet challenging at the same time.
fun class to take even if its not a requirement
It's not really an art class. People who enjoy learning how to improve art skills shouldn't take this class.
Good course, learned quite a bit.
Best Art class I ever attended.
great course to take! i would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is just curious about art.
This course is a great and easy course to take. I took the Writing Intensive portion of the class because I felt that I wasn't creative or as good enough as an artist to take the regular class. However, after taking this class and participating in some of the class activities, such as painting or drawing, I've discovered my ability for creativity. This course helped me explore my abilities to do different things, and has given me an opportunity to discover something about myself.
I really enjoyed this course. Moana was very energetic and made me want to come to class! HE was very friendly and he provided a welcoming environment!
I think the instructor is really knowledgeable about art and he is really passionate in teaching.
This course is interesting, very direct to the point, and it allows us to work hands on using our own experience and an open mind.
class was awsome. professor gives a lot of extra credit. lectures are not boring
This course was awesome! So much fun!
The artistic part of the class looks more fun then the writing intensive part.
It is good, but the WI part is intensive, lots of writing!
i enjoyed this class it was a great experience to take his course.
Would recommend to other students
Great class.
It was alright but I would have liked to know that I was on track because we were not given grades regularly either.
Great class. I'd recommend this to a friend.
Love it! I would recommend it to everyone!
Good. It was very informative and I learned a few basic concepts about art.
good.
Great!
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Nothing much. I knew all of the students were respecting the professor and had wonderful semester.
nothing i thought it was good
Make the lectures more hands on and interactive with the students.
the way i think this coarse could be improved is if the instructor was to explain the concepts in the exams more specifically rather then giving a broad overview of whats on the exam.
Nothing.
none
This course could have used more extra credit opportunities. This course could have maybe had a field trip to a museum.
Longer class so we have more time to draw. Cut down the lectures.
More drawing exercises. Just to make the materials we bought worth the money. Other than that, I think that there is nothing else to improve.
none.
create some type of group project, or collaborative art project with other students.
Space out the projects or simply take one or two of them out.
if i were to add to the class, i would add more in class projects. also more art projects would make it a more challenging course. another way is to add some field trips to museums or art conventions happening around town.
It would be nice if the videos watched in class weren't interrupted constantly for explanations. I prefer discussion and lecture AFTER the entire video clip has played.
Little less concentration on the the extremely detailed history side of Art
Class field trips.
shorter lectures? more videos!
This course could be improved by having some sort of group work or group project to get the students to interact with each other a little more. I also feel that this course could improve on finding more of a balance between the writing intensive and the regular portion of the class. I think the ratio between the two portions is unfair.
More time to help WI students on essays.
There should be more hands on work during class. Also, doing some of the work for projects should be performed in class so that the instructor gets to communicate with the students more.
This course have nothing to improved on
There is no way it could be improved. It is already good!
This course can be improved starting with the instructor. He needs to believe in his students more and not put them down for one bad grade and encourage them more to do better and believe in them.
the layout to the webpage needs to be fixed. the webpage needs dates and also it needs to stop creating windows in windows.
Grades given on a regular basis and extra credit clearly stated.
Maybe make a grading sheet so students can keep a track record of everything that is to be counted towards their grade.
None.
This course could use a little bit more drawing techniques. Maybe incorporate more shading or other techniques.
I think that more meetings to meet with students being up to date and to check in along with the syllabus. I think that more resources to learning should be available with examples.
I'm not sure. I guess the Live Q&A should be a little shorter.
27. Other comments:
Because of this Art 101 class, I am going to major in to Art(more likely fashion and design).
really fun enthusiastic teacher
thank you Mr.Moana for all your help.
fun class and interesting
Professor Nikou is a great teacher. He describes with a lot of details and emotions through his lectures.
-- snipped --
I would take other class from Moana Nikou again. He's a great teacher .
none.
Professor Nikou is a wonderful teacher. I would recommend this course to any one interested in art history. The classroom environment was amazing. I loved being able to have discussions that were in a way almost philosophical.
Mr. Nikou deserves a raise!!!!
none
Thank you Moana for a great semester!!!
Overall, I think the instructor has passion in art and so as teaching. I strongly recommend him.
N/A

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
He accepted feedback about what kind of assignments we'd like to do instead of just assigning what he wanted.
I liked how we got to see everyone's photos and got to talk about them.
i like learning how to take pictures and use the different settings on my camera. learning how to think outside of the box while using the different techniques we learned. also it was very interesting learning about the different artists in the world and what they specialize in and it helps you to improve and think differently when taking pictures.
Showing everyone's work.
I liked how I learned the different styles of taking a photo.
I enjoyed critiquing our work. Even though it was harsh at times, it was all just professional opinion to improve our art work.
My teacher. I believe Marty is one of the few teachers out there that has my full respect! He is always cheerful and encourages us to pursue any and all avenues to achieve creative perspectives in our projects.
The weekly assignments were very though provoking and adequately explained the practices we were learning.
I loved this class! Really enjoyed learning the technical aspects of photography as well as the deeper artistic perspectives.
The inclusion of a comprehensive overview of photography's history all the way from the earliest serendipitous prototypes to the modern digital camera. Furthermore, in a time period in which the art major is considered reserved for the less intellectually endowed, Moana Nikou is an example of how art is truly a refined, elegant subject that has many true intellectuals at the helm.
I like the critique of our work.
I learned so much about photography i this class! Great Teacher!!!
Very organized and respected way that Mr. Nikou's presented and critiqued effectively for each students photos, and each student contributed very interesting photos.
I learned that even my mistakes are beautiful. I learned that with excellent mistakes i can make a master piece.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
nothing.
NONE
it was hard to understand the fibonacci spiral because i couldnt get pictures that would represent it.
How slow it was, we couldn't choose what we wanted to take pictures of.
I did not like how limited the teacher is to talk outside of class.
near zero studio lessons.
I wish this class could be an every day class! 2 times a week seems so little and it is such a fun course I feel it deserves more class time.
Not enough class time. Would have liked to learn more about different famous photographers.
it felt like this class for beginners.
Not enough class meetings
Can't think of any right now.
I loved it all.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Very good class for anyone interested in improving their photography skills.
A good class.
great! you learn a lot and see a lot of examples. he explains everythng well and is very open to any questions you have.
Fun, and very social
This course is good if you really want to learn how to take better looking photos.
I enjoyed this class a lot. It helped me improve my photography ten fold.
I would definetly recommend it to anyone interested in photography or digital arts. Marty makes this class so much fun!
Very enjoyable class! Professor Nikou is very knowledgeable about this course and I was able to gain a deeper understanding and passion for photography.
Digital photography is a means by which the artist can express him or herself meaningfully. If done right, the art can be timeless, and Moana Nikou teaches you how to make it timeless.
Very educational
Excellent introduction to photography. No photo background person with point-and-shoot can learn theories and how to take reasonably well digital photography. Excellent to take before investing a DSLR camera.
I thought this course helped me express my artistic ideals through the camera instead of using pens and paper.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
idk.
NONE
this course could be improved by being a little longer because time just goes by too fast when we are just getting into the subject.
Let students pick what pictures to take on the assignments, what they are interested in.
The teacher could be more readily available outside of class for more questions instead of always being on a time limit.
just at least maybe one or two more studio days.
As I mentioned before, make this class 4 times a week to allow for more projects and creativity.
This course seems very fast paced when it comes to the limited time to get a good photo for an assignment. I loved the variety of assignments given, but I think that if less assignments were given in exchange for more time on the assignment, this could help in producing more great photos.
Can't think at moment.
I don't think it needs improvement. As for a beginner like myself this course of perfectly scheduled. As for the advanced students in my class, they might have been little bored.
27. Other comments:
Thank you Marty!
none
My respect, admiration and appreciation to Professor Nikou. Thank you for making this course the most entertaining and creative class in my entire educational career.
Professor Nikou's passion for photography was an inspiration and motivation for myself and many other students, i'm sure. He is great at making you think outside the box, and looking at the world from different angles and perspectives. AWESOME TEACHER!
Mr. Nikou's response to my email questions are within a day, if not immediate or within a couple of hours. I value this practice of Mr. Nikou's very much, as this greatly affects students' (my) perception of teacher's interest to students (my) work.
i wished that I knew about this class earlier in my earlier college life. I would have enjoyed myself little bit more.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed learning about international artists, art work, different styles of art and techniques, and more.
Doing the Arts project and also the way how Marty Nikous taught the course what i like about Marty is that he teaches with a sense of humor .
I liked the teacher's learning style, he made everything very interesting and fun to learn. I especially admired how, because art can sometimes be very judgmental sometimes, he encouraged everyone to participate and ensured that no one's work would criticized and such, thus making everyone feel more at ease to express themselves.
I liked learning about the different eras of art.
The history interested me the most; About how art was and how it's evolved to what it is today. How everything is translated and the meaning behind it. I enjoyed the whole course, from every aspect.
Mr. Nikou gives very good lectures that are easy to follow and understand. He is understanding and compassionate to schedule conflictions.
the extra crdit
I liked sharing our art with our classmates.
I liked when he would show us movies that involves art because some of them, if i would have watched them on my own beforehand, i wouldn't think of relating it to art but he made me open my eyes and observe the different types of art in movies.
The teacher's insight and enthusiasm are highly conducive to the learning enviroment.
i liked the actual art that we did.
Learning the different art forms and sketching it ourselves
Creating our Art projects
His lectures were very informative and easy to follow. The projects and sketchbook assignments were fun to do!
actually doing the projects turned out to be fun and interesting. a lot of the topics were very engrossing. i felt my appreciation of western art increased.
I believe my class and I was blessed with such great teacher. He was kind, open to any questions we had, informative, encouraging and more. I enjoyed the projects and lectures, but most of all the selection of extra credit videos. I honestly learn better through visual aids.
Organized slide presentations.
Some of the art works that we did and some of the writings that we did in class
Learning more about the different types of art and artists throughout history.
-- snipped --
I like the way the instructor describes the art he shows us. He is good with words and you can tell he is very passionate about the subject.
I really loved the clear timeline so we knew what was due ahead of time. I also liked the chances for extra credit.
A lot of visuals
Marty Nikou is a very good professor.
Syllabus, Marty's lectures live on Thursdays, Emails with clear explanations.
I loved learning about the history behind art works and the artists background.
I liked the way the class was layed out for us students. We knew what we would need to do for the course and when we would need to do it. I liked the way every assignment was given and displayed to us.
I liked the videos we had to watch for each section. It helped me understand more and give me a visual. Also I enjoyed the blackboard sessions. I also enjoyed the projects we got to do like the clay model,painting,and picture collage.
The live class discussions were the best because it was a study guide for our quizzes. It also gave a better understanding of the assignments we were doing.
Very well organized and easy to follow online instructions.
Marty was an amazing teacher. he made my first experience taking online classes very easy
although we did not meet face-to-face, class discussions were always fun. haha
never thought about taking art, or learning about art. i found it extremly interesting.
visiting the art museum
i liked the way the class was setup... the videos/lectures were all enjoyable and i learned a lot. instructor was always very helpful and answered emails/questions right away.

24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The aspects of the course that i liked least was going over more book/powerpoints rather than spending hands on time working with concepts learned.
What I like about the course most was that he explains clearly about what art is about.
nothing really.
-- snipped --
Nothing.
not many. i love this class.
the exams
To be honest, i can't really stand sitting through a class with mostly lectures.
Great class. Nothing bad
i dont like learning about the history. i wanted to do art more than learn.
PowerPoint presentations were a bit long
Lectures on art. Im more of a hands on kind of person so i like creating art.
Nothing really...
some of the videos (aside from the lectures) were too long. i have also had some technical issues, but professor nikou and jon blumhardt were very responsive. there was not enough information on non-western art and its development. this is a terrible oversight.
none
Doing the lectures
-- snipped --
I wasn't to fond of the weekly blackboard meetings due to my work schedule conflicting.
NA
I wish his lectures had a video of himself actually giving the lectures out so it feels more like i am in the classroom.
Review for the final exam. the lecture was over 2 hours. It will be easier if the instructor email the students a guide line and be open for questions. Go over the material in just one lecture was too exhausted.
Nothing much the overall class content was very good and Marty was a pleasure to learn with.
There's nothing I disliked about this course.
I didn't like the reading as much but it was really interesting.
The book work readings.
i do not like online courses period. i like being in a class face to face.
nothing really.

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Good, very enlightening course
was pretty good and interesting because i learned great stuffs about the visual of Arts.
It was very good and exceeded my expectation for an art 101 class. :)
A good course to take and learn about the history of art.
Over all, I really enjoyed the course and learned more then I thought I would out of it.
I would recommend any and every student to take this class. Even if not required by major.
good
I enjoyed this class. Teaches the basics of what is art and where it came from.
This course was okay to me.
It was great.
moderate. wouldnt take it again.
I really enjoyed this course, creating our own art pieces and learning different techniques, plus in some lectures he used video to teach which was good.
It was ok. I learned of the history on different types of art and where it started.
everyone should have to take it, but african, asian, australian, south american, etc. art should be covered as well.
I believed this course helped me to improve my artistic skills and opened my imagination. I enjoyed learning about different art techniques and artists.
This class was okay, it was challenging especially if you're in the writing intensive side of the class.
Positive. I would recommend this course to others because it is an enjoyable class and I learned a lot also.
Very good course.
Enjoyed the class
I enjoyed it.
I enjoyed this class very much. the material is very interesting.
I have much better understanding of art now than before taking this class. This class have taught me to view an art work in its formal and conceptual form. I now have a better appreciation of art so much so that I have taken up learning to make art myself.
Its a great course and I would definitely recommend it to others who are online students and need to take this course
It was great. I enjoyed learning so much about Art and it's history and creating art myself.
Average.
Excellent!
It was a great course, and i learned many new things
great course. wish i took it in a classroom than online.
very interesting course
I dont feel like I got out the best out of this class.
i enjoyed the class and the instructor.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The course could be improved by doing more hands on techniques in class. Or a balancing of the two, lecture and hands on.
team work more participation that i could do the projects a little better.
more hands on would be nice, cause that's how some people like me learn better.
I believe it good. No improvements needed.
I don't think you can improve the course, the instructor was amazing, making each class very interesting, bring enthusiasm and passion into the class room.The projects were fun and interesting, the lectures were interesting and full of life.
This class can be improved with more extra credit assignments.
its good
I think it would be better if there were more hand on activities that goes along with lectures. i think most students would rather be doing things instead of mostly lectures where u just have to listen and take notes.
Phenominal class.
more art work. more hands on activities.
This course could be improved by, making some PowerPoint lectures a little shorter, but other then that, I loved the class.
Create more hands on Art. Creating more examples that can relate to modern times.
Maybe more project work and/or sketchbook assignments would help us apply what we learn more.
Post grades of projects/assignments/tests in a section so that we are able to keep track of our progress
african, asian, australian, south american, etc. art should be covered as well.
I hope one day eliminate could video chat with the whole class, not just the teacher. I would recommend having a day at the beginning of the semester where the class can actually meet one another and the teacher.

Final exam review.
Keep up the great work Marty and goodluck in all your future endeavors.
Once again, this was a great course. I cant think of anything that would need to be improved.
This course could be improved by having more art projects. Also more ways of studying the material that was learned and memorizing it.
This course would improve if the book work was decreased and the live class discussions were used more. This would allow students to communicate better. Sometimes the bookwork is hard to understand, but with the live class discussion, it makes the readings more clear.
I am not a big fan of Blackboard Illuminate. It seems like it has a lot of technical issues.
this course could be improved if the time frame was maybe 15-30 minutes earlier. although i understand how difficult it is to have a time frame that is suitable for everyone.
this course is great. keep up the good work.

Mr. Nikou is a really good instructor and I enjoyed his class very much.
Marty is an awesome professor and he doesn't hesitate to reward those who are clearly doing their best in the class :) He's very open and I think he's lenient to a certain extent.
marty is great.
Awesome class!
Thank you, Professor Nikou.
Moana Nikou is a good teacher. His tells you straight up what he thinks about your work and what you need to improve on.
