29. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
taking this course I don't know anything about art and the concept of it but after taking this class it is more interesting and I can't believe I do can draw and sketching picture on my own.
I liked the implementation of both artistic concepts and history with hands-on art projects inside and out of class. Besides understanding how to create a work of art, we are also given a context to a lot of famous art works and art styles conducive to creating art. A very good survey course.
All of it was great!
Mr Nikou was very clear with his directions. He always showed examples of projects to help inspire us with ideas.
Learning the history and different technique of art
I enjoyed the fact that he allowed class discussion and questions to be asked at any time, also the fact that he included examples of certain things when the class needed help.
The best part of this course was doing the project 1,2,and 3.
Days when we could do hands on activities instead of the dreaded lectures.
i enjoy the right equal amount of hands on work and lectures
The paintings and drawings were the best.
The projects and sketchbooks were really enjoyable.
30. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
He seemed somewhat unsympathetic when it came to class absences, although something like that can be understandable.
It was too short
When you were wrong or did something incorrectly he was very passive aggressive about it. I could tell sometimes other students did not appreciate that either.
It wasn't as hands on as I thought it was going to be.
Personally, the presentations only because I'm shy.
The worst part of the course was the long lectures.
Not enough hands on class activities.
I dislike that the class ended so quickly
31. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This is a perfect class you can take because when you evaluate it before taking this course you stay negative but after all it understandable and it related to other courses eg. religion, history etc
If one who has an extraordinarily basic knowledge of art wants a place to get started, this is a good course to partake in. There are projects that concern different art mediums (clay, collage, and painting, primarily) and he also explores ways for one to exercise their creativity in conjunction with these projects. There is also a lot of information of art history, styles of art, and the different artists/cultures that personify each art form, which is interesting and also helpful in doing the work assigned. Being absent in this class is difficult though, as catch-up policies seem somewhat unforgiving at times, combined with the fact that there is a lot of information within most class sessions. However, he is generous with extra credit points, which makes it easier to catch back up. Overall, I would recommend this class to anyone who wishes to create a personal foundation in the visual arts.
I wish there was an extension to this class
Mr Nikou is a great teacher that really knows what he is talking about. But maybe Mr Nikou should be an upper division teacher. Teach 300/400 level classes at an University.
It's a fun course and I learned a lot about different types of art.
Very fun, interactive class where you learn a lot about not only art but history as well. Professor is very considerate in terms of helping students when needed (i.e. asking questions anytime). Great course to take whether majoring in Art or not. 10/10 evaluation.
Very good, teacher cares for the student a lot.
Good introduction to art.
I recommend other students to take this specific art101 class
This was a fun class.
It's a good class to take if you want to know more about art and its history. I like how it's not a studio class and so we aren't judged on how well we paint or draw.
32. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Perhaps if there are more modern examples of artwork ("modern" meaning works within the last 30 years). I personally enjoyed learning about the older pre-existing works, but I could see how another student would want to learn about newer artists.
Nothing needs to be improved. The need to write two sections isn't needed here.
Mr Nikou could try to pace the lessons better. Near the end of the semester he was really jamming all the stuff together.
No improvement ideas.
Course is overall great, I can't see anything to be improved in my opinion.
No need for improvement
More hands on activities are a must. Better lectures (more engaging) is another one.
33. Other comments:
None
Mr Nikou has a strong passion for what he teaches and I appreciate that. People who want to major in Art should really talk to Mr Nikou because he knows a lot.
Awesome way of teaching!

29. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The ability to work individually, on your own, or as a group to obtain different views or opinions on photography photos presented. Which is one the of the major basis of how each student improves in the subject as well as socially.
Getting to meet new people and learning how to use my camera correctly and taking great pictures.
Professor nikou's attention to detail is what I like the best.
I enjoyed the feedback.
All aspects!
I like that I can use the studio to take picture.
hands on learning
30. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
nothing really. The he is somewhat to much but class is great overall.
I wish everyone in class were friends
-- snipped --
none
* Showing 3 out of 4 survey responses.

 

31. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great course which revolves on meeting requirements yet without being boring the student is able to express them self, out of the box. Pictures an individual takes and submits also reflects upon their personality, likes and dislikes, this provides a great social boost for those whom have similar interests. Also using old theories form film photography to digital is a great way to explore our surrounding community.
It's a great way to learn how to use a camera and take great photos
i loved it 100%
Fun
Excellent course
helps individual grow in the field of photography
32. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
It could be improved by how we take our tests in class
It could be improved by more engaging tutorials on how to take a proper picture.
I don't think there's anything else that he could improve on.
33. Other comments:
Nothing.
The instructor is an excellent teacher. He thought me a lot of things from understanding my camera to learning different types of compositions. Highly recommended!

28. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
good teacher. great class. i learned a lot from this photography class.
The outings we have!
Teacher
Taking pictures
learning the operations of DSLR cameras
The aspects of the course I liked the best were 1) the useful/helpful projects assigned allowed me to be creative, 2) how we were able to present our photographs and go over them, and 3) overall the positive vibe of the course from the students and the teacher.
The freedom to take what we thought were good.
I really enjoyed this class. There wasn't any part of the class I didn't enjoy
getting to shoot during class
29. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
none
Nothing really its a great beginning course class for photography.
Nothing
History
all photos are subject to personal taste
The aspects of the course I liked least didn't have to do with the teacher, nor the class material, but the equipment that was available, especially the studio. I wish there was a little more.

30. My overall evaluation of this course is...
awesome
it is fun! You learn a lot about the basics of digital photography and how to take great photos with little to none of post processing.
Excellent
Good
I liked it so much that I may take the course again
that it was very informative, and a fun-filled course. The teacher definitely knows his material, and I learned more than I expected. I would definitely recommend this class to others.
7/10
the class is great.
great class for beginners
31. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
none
Its perfect
None
if the school could provide some cameras and other equipment
This course can be improved by having more projects, and by having more equipment to work with.
I feel this course could be improved by having students who are not familiar with the language of photography be eased into it, instead of having to learn it from the get go. otherwise good course.

45. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The actual creating of art and sharing in the art of others as well.
The course had fun projects and assignments. It allowed the student to be creative and have fun.
Art Projects
The hands-on classwork that we did in class.
I like doing the ion class drawing and painting.
His projects makes you feel very rewarding about it, he respects it very much.
The best part of the course is learning about the history of art and the different types of art there are in the world, and the fact that we get to do it on hand experience to know how to do a certain type of art.
the projects throughout the whole semester were very related to what we were learning at the current moment
I enjoyed learning from a professor who was passionate about the subject he was teaching.
the art projects/activities.
Did fun projects and assignments.
Everything!
The professor is very enthusiastic and is very passionate about art and it shows in his lectures. He staffs you in and makes you want to learn more.
Doing artwork
46. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
That there wasn't more time for class activities because our class vetoed out the online lectures. I personally didn't mind them and preferred it because of the additional in-class art time it would have allowed for.
I wish we were able to continue listening to the lectures online so there could have been more hands on assignments and projects in class. I did not vote to have lectures in class, but the lectures were still very good and informative.
-- snipped --
certain lectures seemed tedious and long.
The exams were a bit hard
N/a
I like least is there too much more about history of art rather than actually doing more art.
the fact that we had to do both online and class lectures was what i disliked most about the course. it took a lot of time away from other classes
the book stuff and art history
Class was based on lectures.
None.
Lectures

47. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was very interesting and I definitely learned a lot. Not only about art history and art in general, but also about my own abilities as an artist. I enjoyed it very much and would recommend the class to others.
This course was fun. It has been my favortie class taken so far. Maybe its because I love art and being creative, but it was very good and I would like to take more art classes in the future.
-- snipped --
B+
I love the class and the teacher made it fun for everyone to enjoy art.
I recommend this class to whoever is interested in the history and how Art began.
The course was a great course because of how much I have learned from it.
it's a good course to take. as long as the student is willing to learn about the various types of art and art history, then the student will definitely benefit.
I really enjoyed this course.
its alright.
Great art course, teacher taught the course well.
Great

48. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The course could be improved if there were students who were more willing to do the online lectures even though the online lectures did have some flaws (missing slides, unlatching audio, etc). Overall, the class was good.
-- snipped --
I think this course would have been better if there were a couple more art projects. maybe a little more 3-d work instead of the stectch work we did in the begining. Other than that this course was excellent.
More time to do art work Less time on lectures
More hands on art
The course could be improved if the history of art presentations would be done less, in a faster and easier way to remember. We are given the vocabulary paper to put in important words, but it'd be better if at the end of the lesson before the quiz, we're given the definitions of those vocabulary because the videos are sometimes to understand.
the teacher should go over the lectures in class, instead of putting it on the internet.
could be more hands on.
This course can be improved by giving more projects or in class assignments and less lectures. I recommend doing more hands on assignments since its an art course.
Doesn't need to be improved.
* Showing 9 out of 10 survey responses.

 

49. Other comments:
The course was fun and the professor was engaged and enthusiastic with the students during the lectures. He made the classroom feel comfortable.
I recommend this class to anyone who like art or just want to experience art.

37. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I learned a lot about art in general. In fact, I've never know much about the subject prior to taking this class. I really had fun making the art projects throughout the semester as well.
The videos provided helped answer questions about our projects.
That I can review my module over and over. I can work on my own pace.
I liked how everything was online. It was convenient using Laulima to turn in sketchbooks, projects, and exams. I really liked how quick and efficient Marty responded to me.
Having the option of flexibility to work on course material without adhering to a strict schedule of class lectures on campus, even though assignments/exams were very challenging that required a lot of time to complete outside of class.
i really enjoyed the projects and the extra credit videos very interesting.
The art sketches and projects were really fun.
I liked the pace of the class a lot. I thought it may become a little overwhelming but it was just the right amount of assignments to grasp the concept of the class.
Professor Nikou made us feel welcome and he would constantly remind us when something is due.
Mapped-out timetables
Art projects
The thing I liked most was the variety of assignments that we had. We didn't just have sketches, we had paintings, sculptures, and many other things.
Out of all my online classes ever taken (one at HCC, three at UH Manoa) this class by far had the most resources! Our teacher provided written explanations, visual aides, audio lectures, video demonstrations and powerpoint slides! My other classes only had textbooks to read and quizzes to do after. Our teacher is very enthusiastic on the subject and this is very apparent through the amount of resources he provided for us.
The studio art projects were what I liked most about my online course experience.
38. Upon entering the online course I felt welcomed, and knew where to go and what to do to get started.

39. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Well, everything from this course i think turned out fine however I just wish Marty filmed his lectures instead of just the audio version of his lectures.
Nothing, I enjoyed this course fully.
It was a little pricey buying art materials. For the required materials I purchased I would have bought a couple of good quality paint brushes than a cheap set. Other than that I would recommend this class to everyone.
I did not like how the exams were structured. Some of the questions required a lot of time, so I felt that there should be more time for students to complete and turn in the exam. I also did not like how we had to buy a lot of the art supplies. I wish that was told to us in the beginning, especially because art supplies are not cheap.
Some of the course material seemed a bit outdated. A few audio details didn't quite match up with video slides at times, where something said in the audio didn't show up as a slide or was skipped. It led to a little bit of confusion, but later details would sync up.
i disliked how the "Slides" doesn't work, i would only have to listen to the lecture to achieve criteria
N/A
I cant say that I did not like any part of my online class taking experience. I did it because it was convenient for my work schedule. Although the course work was not overwhelming, it was still a challenge which I expect from any college level course.
Nothing
Art is very expensive
None
N/A
One of the things that I didn't like about my online course was that our teacher had papers/resources that were outdated (Summer 2013 etc.) and this confused me because I wasn't sure that these were still relevant to our class now. Normally they were relevant, but I think he should re-upload them (he had a lot of old papers!) and change the name of the file without "Summer 2013" written in it. Maybe he should also just delete them all and re-upload them to the most relevant one. Also I wished our teacher would have provided more feedback. Our teacher was very sure to keep in touch with his students. Altough our grades are usually uploaded to laulima in a timely manner, I would really appreciate little feedback without having to constantly ask for it. I know that the said we should inquire of our test grades or assignment grades and the reasoning for them through email, but if he could just write a quick note on laulima just to mention that maybe he liked the way I used a certain technique in my project, or something, then I would know I'm on the right track.
Lack of interaction with online course classmates.

42. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The valuable information given in general about visual arts. And the projects of course!
doing the sketchbook.
The fact that everything was online and did not require me to physically go in to the campus.
Having the opportunity to challenge my artistic ability and to improve my skills through learning the fundamentals of art.
i liked the projects and sketchbook assignments. Assignments were assigned accordingly in an organized manner.
The lecture and slides were very helpful and easy to understand. The exams were tough however I learned a lot from it.
Advanced notice of assignments and due dates. As this is an online class, most people check for updates daily. At the same time making their own schedule for work, children, and life in general. The best thing about this course is that nothing was given last minute.
I enjoyed working on the projects and sketchbooks.
Detailed timetable/syllabus
Professor was always willing to help.
Being new to anything pretaining to art I was worried that I would recieve bad grades because of my quality. I really tried hard in the sketchbook and project assignments and even though they weren't the nicest I received a good grade for my effort.
The aspects I liked the best were: 1. amount of resources 2. very easy to follow along 3. very clear due dates 4. constant reminders 5. the projects were fun!
I liked the art projects and the slides for the lectures best. I also enjoyed the clear organization of modules in this course.
43. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
the audio lectures. However, the lectures were very very helpful and not boring. In fact, Marty's accent made it soothing to listen. I personally just prefer visual. That's all.
doing the exam.
The exams and projects.
Art supplies can be a bit expensive, a necessary aspect to get a passing grade for the course.

Just the two that I mentioned earlier, 1.old resources were uploaded and 2. not a lot of feedback
44. My overall evaluation of this course is...
A grade
The modules are clear and you know what to expect. Allows you to review the lectures.
I began to draw again! Really enjoyed the class!
3; the convenience of the class is what I liked the best. I did not like having to listen to long lectures that were labeled incorrectly and the slides that were supposed to go along with the lecture did not work most of the time. That was probably the most frustrating. I also did not like the projects because I did not have most of the materials, so paying for things that I was only going to use once seemed like a waste.
Excellent. I wasn't sure how the course would be due to the fact that it's 'online,' but turned out to be a solid learning experience.
i really enjoyed this online course. Very Fair and Clear expectations. All assignments were an adventure. i really enjoyed this elective course. i hope to further my artistic talent in the future
I really enjoyed this course. I learned a lot about art history and had a lot of fun with the projects and sketches.
I give Moana Nikou an A for class presentation and organiztion. I love ART!
I would recommend this class.
Easy to follow, informative
Great course and helpful professor!
Great class and would recommend to a friend.
I would give this course an A! The two aspects that I didn't like that much, could easily be fixed!
Overall, this course has been very educational, benefiting, and fun. Professor Nikou is very knowledgeable in this subject and is capable of teaching students in an engaging and fun way at a steady pace that is not overwhelming or underwhelming for me.
45. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Everything in his class was excellent except the fact that there were no visual lectures. I have no other complaints at all.
This course could be improved by updating the lectures and slides so that both actually go together. It could also be improved by not requiring so many materials.
Maybe consider updating audio lecture to mp3, and having an option for video to be in HD format. Also combining audio and visual files as a cohesive new/updated video lecture in one, designed exclusively for online students based on the differences with actual in-person lectures on campus. Reference video lectures @ http://www.coursera.org for possible ideas/suggestions
Check the "slides" link on your modules. Slides link doesn't work for various students and also doesn't work on HCC library computers.
This class would be improved by better slides and recording of the lectures. Maybe put the slide and lecture audio in the same file.
I think it would be very cool, (technology provideded), that students could have a virtual meeting as a class with the instructor weekly or bi weekly to discuss progress or questions.
N/A
More organized exams
I don't think this class needs improvement. Throughout the semester the assignments and tests were reasonable. Great class.
This course could be improved if old resources were to be deleted from laulima (or renamed) because this would clear any misunderstandings and confusion that the students may have. This course could also be improved if our teacher provided short feedbacks on our assignments and tests so students know where they stand, what they did well on and where they need to improve.
This course could possibly be improved by having a weekly discussion on module lectures, readings, or assignments. This way, students can meet each other and talk about what they're learning and what they think about course material.
46. Other comments:
Marty Nikou is a perfect example of a person who is passionate about art. He also has an awesome personality as well. Great professor to take!

I love art, it's an important part of my life and this course really helped to strengthen my knowledge on the history of art.
Great Class, and Very interesting assignments
I enjoyed this class and I would recommend everyone to take this course.
Keep up the good work. Hope my opinion helps. Aloha

39. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I like the online course because I can study whenever and wherever I am available.
i didn't have to go to the classroom.
The professor didnt expect us to be on the computer every single day. He had clear and detailed information.
I like how I use my creativity towards our artwork even though it is an online class.
Making things from scratch.
I liked the self pace of the course. Nikou gave clear deadlines and allowed us to do it at our own pace. Working full-time, I did not have to change much with my schedule but it allowed me to stay in school too. I liked the projects, it introduced me to skills that I did not know I had.
I was able to take other classes while taking this online class. I was able to do it from my home instead of being in a classroom environment. This gave me the freedom to work on my assignments anytime of the day.
While there were firm deadlines for exams and projects, this class was self-paced enough for me to work it into my schedule.
Convenient
The work was conveniently spread out. I knew what was expected of me and Prof. Nikou was very clear with instructions.
i liked most about learning new things and how to do some new art
I was able to do my work on my own time but still was able to keep up with the course.
40. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I did not like to get the information from audio materials because it was very hard to compare and analyze the same material with video slides.
there were too many supplies to purchase. the pastels were only used once and it was a waste of money.
I think the medium of his lectures was the least favorite of mine. The content of the lectures were great and it helped me succeed in my exams and in the class in general. I think maybe a different format (podcast? powerpoint?) would make it easier for students. I used the suggested internet browsers and I still had some issues from time to time with slides and audio files. This was a bit disheartening.
The timeline for assignments were reasonable. He gave us a lot of time to do our sketches, projects, and midterms. He would also send us email reminders of what is due, which helped a lot.
The slideshows and audio lectures. It was sometimes difficult to figure out when to pause the slideshow and figure out which art piece was being talked about. Then I would have to go back and re-listen to the audio to catch what I missed while fiddling with the slideshow.
Nothing
I know the purpose of separating the video and audio is to make sure people are paying attention, but it's still hard to follow along when I'm worried that I'm on the wrong slide. It also takes a while longer to skip through to make sure I'm at the right place in the slide.
i liked that i could take art from home and not have to go into a class because I'm not that great of an artist
It was hard to understand what was going on and the things that were due since it's an independent course.
Least thing i like about this course is the format of the videos
41. The course site was organized well, and it was easy to understand what needed to be done each week.

43. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I enjoyed creating all of the art projects and sketchbook assignments because simply I like drawing and creating art.
i was able to complete my main courses while taking this gen ed course at the same time.
The content was very exciting, and by the way Professor Nikou talks about Art you can tell he loves it. That makes learning a lot more interesting.
Creating new things.
I liked the self-pace and the course schedule. It wasn't overwhelming yet it kept me engaged throughout the entire semester. I've never taken an art course, so everything was new to me. I found confidence in my art skills throughout the semesters and various projects. This particular aspect was very eye-opening to me.
The sketch, and projects where fun and I learned how to do certain things dealing with paint and certain way to draw. Also, what types of brushes and pencil to use
The projects. After all the reading and listening to so many lectures, its great that you can have a hands on art project.
Extra credits
I liked how everything was on schedule and I didn't feel rushed or stressed.
i liked how simple it was it didn't get to complicating
The projects and sketchbooks.
The projects...
44. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I did not like to read the textbook because I do not have interests about the history and other aspects of arts, but I did read the textbook because it was required.
buying so many art supplies that i wont use again. the tests did not reflect any readings. and that was also a waste of money.
Again, I think the formats of the lectures were the least favorite of mine. I think when I was listening to them I found it very difficult (even with the recommended browsers) to get the proper "experience." I did find them very critical to my success in the class. I think he should just try different formats.
The midterms took a lot of time. An essay for each question had to be detailed to the T to earn full points for each question.
The lectures. I know this is a major part of distance education, but even when I sat myself down with no distractions I still found myself doodling or having my mind drift off.

45. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I really enjoyed this class and strongly recommend others to take it with Mr. Nicou. He is very nice and helpful instructor.
The course was great, no bad thoughts.
This course is fantastic.
that this course is a great course if you are curious about art.
I really liked the class. It was tailored to both people interested in art and people who don't necessarily have any skills in art (this is where I fell). I enjoyed it cause it challenged me in a different way than other classes have before. The projects were simple enough, but required me to think with a different part of my mind and use different skills as well. The content of lectures were interesting and he picked great time periods of art. This class was very interesting to take.
Very informative. Mr Nikou is very knowledable with everything he teaches in this class. Very organized.
This is a great class to take for anyone interested in dabbling or learning the basics of art. Professor Nikou is very knowledgeable and presents the work in a fun yet very educational way.
Excellent! :)
I liked this course because it was easy to follow and instructions were clear.
i think this course is great for art students that don't want to sit in an art class
I was able to stay well educated within the class without forcing myself and extremely falling behind.
fun...exciting...and I would prefer this class to any student to take it...
46. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The audio materials are sometimes do not match with slides material. I could not find some visual materials in the same instruction slide, which has been discussed for long time in the audio material, that kind of frustrated me.
-- snipped --
I hate how he separate his audio files and his powerpoint. And his powerpoint is in the form of movie. It is better if he will put our class lecture in a powerpoint format and attached his audio files in each slides.
-- snipped --
I think maybe try different platforms for the lectures and slides. It was a bit distracting at times during the lecture when the class he was recording got off subject and it was not really relevant to the online course. I know it may be more work, but separate lectures would be more engaging for the online students. I sometimes found that parts of the lecture would not relate to me.
Some of my videos and slides for this class could not be seen or heard. Everything had to be updated on my mac, or I had to use a different browser. That was the only thing that was frustrating. I had to use multiple browsers to view my slides and another browser to hear the lecture.
I think this course could be improved by making shorter audio modules. Or by having the audio modules made for an online class, not just recorded from an actual class.
None
Every aspect of this course is really good. The only thing I would improve are the separate lectures.
this course was great
Possibly slideshows with audio to understand which slides pertain to the audio. When listening to the audio it's sometimes hard to understand which slide goes with the points in the lecture.

I liked that it was a studio based class
There wasn't much paper homework or test. You had to actually understand the material and demonstrate what you've learned physically.
The course was more hands on compared to other courses being taught on HCC Campus. It allows us to apply what we learn simultaneously learning.
31. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
nothing
The slow start to getting into critical thinking projects.
Not Applicable
32. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Very good course with a very passionate teacher
I think it was an excellent course. I'm glad I can finally understand all the functions of my camera and produce good photos.
Highly recommend to students who are photographic hobbyist and those beginners. It will take some time to get to know the material and terminology, but aside from that the course is real simple to pick up. All you need is patients to get the right moment. Moments will be missed but thats part of life.
33. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Nothing
Maybe have more smaller assignments. Also more guidance when taking photos on campus.

30. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Taking pictures
Taking the photos :)
I liked learning how to use my camera and developing my skills with the help of Nikou.
The different visuals and creativity gave out a good representation of what our product should look like. Instructions of requirements for our homework is precise and clear. The ability to express ones self through the art of photography while learning the technical terms of operating a DSLR camera.
It's an easy to grasp course and can be easy to excel in if you follow the directions
the photo projects
What I liked the best is how Nikou invited the entire 107D class to Waikiki to participate in an excursion with the benefits of getting extra credits for taking pictures.
Learning how to take pictures better.
The examples of photographers, and assignments in technical form.
31. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
There wasn't any one aspect of class I didnt like
Figuring out the camera terms haha.
All aspects were part of the learning experience, I didn't like any portion of the class less than other parts.
none.
Doing the individual project was challenging and could not do what I wanted in the first place
printing the photos
What I liked the least is the fact that the class is only two days a week.
I thought there should be some cameras available for the students that don't have five hundred dallors to send on a camera.
Instructors eyes/grading was not objective. Also the body assignment was a poor choice.
32. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent
9.3 out of 10 :)
It's a great course for students looking to learn and develop photography techniques and skills. I feel like more emphasis should be put on students being creative and not looking at the course as an "Easy A."
Easy class to understand if you want to get into professional photography. Very basic components in making a good photo.
Good, just not a fan of the independent study
its fun
This class was very helpful in improving my photography skills. I learned alot about my camera and what its capable of. I now fully understand the art of taking pictures. Nikou is also very friendly and listens to students when they are in need of advice or when students give out comments. I would recommend this class to anyone that would like to start photography.
It was a good class. I felt i learned a lot pictures and how to use a camera better.
A decent class that could have had a better approach to the basics.
33. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I don't feel there is anything that needs to be changed
This course could possibly be improved by having a borrowing system for students with no camera. Although, I can see how that would be difficult with limited funding. One thing that frustrated me during this course was the fact that there was an uneven distribution of time during project feedback. I feel like putting each student on a timer for criticism and discussion would be a wiser and fairer use of time.
A little more open-minded about the quality of the picture; not everyone has the same perspective about a picture/photo.
No comment
could have just one printing date.
This class could be improved if class times were longer. It would also be very helpful to list necessary items prior to registration/beginning of class semester that is required for students to complete the class.
If the school would put a little more money into the art deparment. I think there would be more you could do with the classses.
For the body assignment bring in a couple models like in drawing classes rather than having us find them.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Hands on sketchbook and project assignments.
the Lecture is clear and I feel like I am inside the class.
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.
The aspects of the course I like the best were the art and sketch projects.
Drawing and painting images of my imagination
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Lectures.
There is nothing I like everything.
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
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 .
I didn't like the midterm exams.
Not all assignments were detailed clearly and being that this was an online class I wasn't able to ask the professor right away.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
N/A
I was able to learn about art.
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.
It's a good course to learn about the introduction to visual arts.
Pretty good
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
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
N/A
I am able to draw something and I got to know about history of art.
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
It would be helpful if you provided a study guide for the midterm.
If your going to have lectures please have video lectures instead of audio. Audio is to dull and hard to listen too.
Communication between students and professor could be improved
27. Other comments:
N/A
Prof Nikou is very helpful and supportive.
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!:)

None.
Subjects sometimes tend to lose interest.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great course that satisfies both DA and WI.
Satisfactory. Very clear instructions.
Great course. My writing has improved because this course required research, planning, and writing.
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:
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.
This WI course was intense and very "fast-paced" for me but I expected it since it is during the summer.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked the material that was study. Professor Nikou did a great job and explaining the concepts through is course lectures and slideshows.
I'm grateful for the additional time to turn in assignments.
The projects and the freedom to be creative--and the fair grading of assignments, as well as feedback.
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!
I liked how the modules clearly showed what us students needed to do for the week.
I loved the fact that he encouraged me outside of the classroom to do my best!
I enjoyed the lectures and project assignments
Doing projects and sketches
The fact that we were able to turn our work on our own time
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.
That it was online and that I could do the homework anytime I wanted to when I was free.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
That I never got to meet him face to face.
I would have loved a little more elaborate slides.
Some of the project objectives were a little unclear. Some deadlines were shortened for weekly assignments.
This was a great class and well constructed, I have nothing negative to say.
None!
I didn't like the lectures they were to long and it's hard for me to learn just by listening.
nothing
listening to long lectures. having to click back and forth from the audio and slide.
A lot of work
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.
At times I found it hard to understand his accent in the lectures, so it made listening and understanding a bit hard.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great course, great professor, fun projects/assignments.
Great course for general education
I would recommend it to ANYONE! He's an amazing instructor.
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.
I thought it was a good class. i learned a lot.
a fun, easy and informative class
somewhat okay
Good if you discipline yourself in keeping up with the work
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.
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.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Routinely review online course material that students need to view in the modules.
More projects? Other than that, nothing.
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 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.
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.
I don't know.
27. Other comments:
Good course. Thanks for having me a part of it.
N/A
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!
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!

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I liked the supplemental viedos along with his course lectures. I liked the spacing between art projects and sketchbook work.
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.
course was easy to follow along with
I liked this entire lecture/course.
i like creating project 3
The projects he made us do was fun.
I truly enjoyed learning the history aspect of art and how art has developed over the years.
not much
I really enjoyed the art projects we did but I wish we had more art to do rather than art history.
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.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
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.
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.
nothing
n/a
the first part was the hardest for me.. trying to give detail on what art means to me
The lectures and quizzes.
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.
lectures were out of a classroom , long, boring, and even though you listen 4 times he doesnt state the facts clearly
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.
a few times my slide shows wouldn't load properly
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was a good course and would suggest this class to other people, but inform them about the downfall of the lecture set up.
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 class, I would definitely recommend it to others
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
i liked the course
B+
I liked this course. It was fun and informative.
D. needs improvement big time
It was an okay 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.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
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.
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.
The volume on the videos was quite soft even with the volume turned up.
Great class
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.
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.
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.
either we read from the book or learn from proper lectures, this isn't what art is about.
We should have more physical art assignments. Less quiz and lecture.
27. Other comments:
I enjoyed the opportunity to learn under the guide of Mr. Nikou; he is a great asset to the University!
none
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?
Taking so many photograph of different subjects.
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.
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.
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.
He is willing to spend extra time during office hours to give us advice on our work.
The artistic freedom and ability to make our own choices of subject.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
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.
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-
That we only had time to shoot so many photos.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Take it. It's a good art medium to learn and a fun class.
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.
This course was very enjoyable for me and Mr. Nikou allowed students to fully express our concerns and opinions.
excellent
It's great, I loved every minute.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Not much to improve. He was pretty explanatory on the techniques and aspects of the projects he wanted.
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.
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?
Taking pictures
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.
Taking pictures
I liked learning about other great 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.
I liked looking at my fellow students pictures and watching them grow along with me.

Watching movies of other photographers.

24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
nothing that I disliked about this course.
-- snipped --
None
The aspect I least liked was how there was a culture of competition and inhibition which took away the students' motivation.
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.

-- snipped --
Looking at our pictures in class.

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Good course, perfect for beginners in photography.
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.
Good
It was good and introduced me to the fundamentals of photography.
Outstanding. I would love to take it again.
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.
-- snipped --
Good.
* Showing 7 out of 8 survey responses.

 

26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
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.
This class could be improved by encouraging more critical and creative thinking and self expression.
I don't see anywhere it can improve.
-- snipped --
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.
* Showing 4 out of 5 survey responses.

 

27. Other comments:
Thank you for all you do!!
Thank you so much. This was an amazing class

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
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 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 really like the sketchbook projects and the art work projects.
Professor Nikou made this class clear and too the point.
I enjoyed watching short movie clips of different cultures showing the different styles of art they used.
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?
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
The projects were fun
I really liked the test format. The class projects were really fun and interesting too!
Projects and sketchbooks
His lectures and slideshows are very well organized.
This class enforced me to think and constantly pick my brain.
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.
I enjoyed doing the actual art projects and sketchbook assignments.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
n/a
Accent
I felt at times some of the modules were unclear. I had to email the professor for more information.
Sitting in forn of the computer for hours listening to a lectures.
-- snipped --
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 would forget to complete the quizzes sometimes
The lectures were long and boring
I really wasn't a fan of the really long lectures and slide shows.
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.
None.
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.
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.

25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent
Good
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 would tell other students to take his class. It is very interesting and you learn a lot about different styles of art.
This class was a good online course to take. Professor is nice and the work load is understandable. Not too difficult.
It was fair and I enjoyed it having as a online class. It really fit into my schedule.
I learned something, so it was a beneficial course.
Ver good
It's a good couse
It is a wonderful class!!
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
AWESOME!
I really enjoyed this course. It's different from the classes that I usually take, and I found it relaxing for a change.
I enjoyed this course. Mr. Nikou is very knowledgeable.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course is designed perfectly for the subject.
Can't think of anything
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.
No so many lectures to listen to. Not so long lectures.
I feel this course could be improved by having less quizes and more art projects.
Change the online format.
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.
Be more orgnanized with the lectures. Make the finals easier.
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.
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.
No changes.
The slideshow and audio slides, are about the only thing that I think can be improved about this course.
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.
27. Other comments:
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.
Just the long lectures i would change other than that it was a really good class
I enjoyed it.
Great class! Should be required for all HCC students!

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Mr. Nikou was well-organized having links to each weeks work.
i like all the sketches that we had to do.
NOTHING. I enjoyed everything up until I actually talked to him.
There is nothing I gained or took out of this course.
I love the sketchbook assignments and projects!
Nikou was very organized and prepared
I enjoyed how he stayed perfectly on schedule with everything.
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.
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 :)
Professor Nikou was very organized and clear about everything.
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.
You were able to do hands on work in an online class.
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 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.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Nothing
nothing everything was great.
Everything, especially the professor.

The long lectures. Some of the slides for visuals are not working.
The long lectures, but i really benefited from them.
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.
Nothing to really complain about :) I really enjoyed this class!
Professor Nikou could have communicated better whenever a question came up.
No class discussions.

Excellent! I learned so much!
A very informative and enjoyable class
Great class, learned a lot.
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.
