29. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
i enjoy the right equal amount of hands on work and lectures
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 projects and sketchbooks were really enjoyable.
The paintings and drawings were the best.
Mr Nikou was very clear with his directions. He always showed examples of projects to help inspire us with ideas.
Days when we could do hands on activities instead of the dreaded lectures.
The best part of this course was doing the project 1,2,and 3.
All of it was great!
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.
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.
Learning the history and different technique of art
30. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
I dislike that the class ended so quickly
Personally, the presentations only because I'm shy.
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.
Not enough hands on class activities.
The worst part of the course was the long lectures.
It was too short
He seemed somewhat unsympathetic when it came to class absences, although something like that can be understandable.
It wasn't as hands on as I thought it was going to be.
31. My overall evaluation of this course is...
I recommend other students to take this specific art101 class
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.
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.
This was a fun 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.
Good introduction to art.
Very good, teacher cares for the student a lot.
I wish there was an extension to this class
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.
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
It's a fun course and I learned a lot about different types of art.
32. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Course is overall great, I can't see anything to be improved in my opinion.
Mr Nikou could try to pace the lessons better. Near the end of the semester he was really jamming all the stuff together.
More hands on activities are a must. Better lectures (more engaging) is another one.
No need for improvement
Nothing needs to be improved. The need to write two sections isn't needed here.
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.
No improvement ideas.
33. Other comments:
Awesome way of teaching!
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.
None

30. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
I was able to see that i really like art and art can be fun. With art, i am able to express things that i like.
The projects are really fun
Doing the art assignments
I think freedom was what aspect i liked best because it gave me time to go at my own pace.
I enjoyed the module assignments, which gave ample amount of time to complete. The modules were well structured.
I had three parts of the course that I liked the best. I liked making the art projects. When I had signed up, I did not know that I was to make projects, I had thought that this class was more of a lecture. However, I was pleased to find out that I would be making projects throughout the semester. I also liked hearing the lectures as his lectures were clear, entertaining, and easy to follow. The third part of the class I like is the art gallery. It was fun to see other students work along with mine.
Art History and Art methods from lectures and reading.
I like that Professor Nikou gave use more time to do our assignments. He didn't expect us to do an art project over night. I like that he pushed us to think outside the box. He encouraged creativity.
I really enjoyed the Sketch Assignment & projects. Thank you!
The projects. I appreciated how he constantly reminded us that we don't need to be good at art to complete the projects or succeed in his class. I also very much appreciated how he'd give examples of the projects by using his students work. I always enjoyed looking through the examples and realizing, you don't have to be perfect & neither does your work. It was great exposure for us, and also it helped with the brainstorming process when i was ever in a bind and couldn't get my creative thinking going. Very helpful, very cool.
I really enjoyed all the extra videos included in each module. They really help to get a broader understanding of the material being taught.
I like how this class was very organized and videos of the instructor demonstrating how to do specific projects & homework were very helpful.
His video instructions were clear and easy to understand. The lectures and assignments were interesting and fun.
31. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The least favorite part of this course was listening to the lectures, i would always wait till the last minute to listen to them. I should have been better with that and do it earlier so i don't have to listen later
None, I enjoyed the course
Sometimes the videos weren't clear or the volume was too low.
The video lecture format. IE quick time
I liked the class.
The amount of materials to purchase for projects.
The lectures being in two parts were a little odd. We would have to download an audio and a separate slide video. i think it would be good to have both in the same video.
The Lectures of Video & slide. Because it was all new to me. Thank you!
really, there's nothing about this course i didn't like. i enjoyed it. i think maybe if professor Nikou could grade our assignments in a timely matter that would be nice.
I don't think there's anything specific that I can name. The only thing I did struggle with was a few things here and there in some of the lectures--where I could not make out what the instructor said.
I did not like the how the slides and audio were separated. It was difficult to match the pictures and the audio.
I enjoyed all aspects of this course
32. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This course was fun and very convenient because it was online. The grading scale was very good and the teacher was understanding of everyones artistic skills.
Very fun course
Great class! Will recommend to others!
that it's a nice experience for my first online class. I thought at first, Art Class online ? but then i got used to it.
A+
This is a great course. I think I would have liked to take this course in person rather than online but only because art classes are fun.
I felt this was an excellent course. I was very apprehensive when I found out that I had to create art projects (due to my insecurities of artistic talent), but I had fun creating the projects. The professor created a comforting environment in his expectations, which allowed me to shed such insecurities, and gave way to creative thought. Again, an excellent course!
I learned a lot from this course. It was a fun and creative course. I learned a lot about art and its histroy and had fun doing the projects. At times the sketches were hard because I'm not an artist, but it was a fun class overall.
It was very Interesting and Educational as well.
great class, taught by a great teacher.
I give it a 10 out 10.
This course was clear on each module and the video lectures were helpful.
An overall excellent evaluation. Moana is a personable and effective art teacher
33. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
The slides were hard to follow along with the lecture at first but after a while i was able to get used to it. the slides could be better in certain ways because you would say a few words about something that is important but i did not know how to spell that certain word.
I like the way it already is
No improvement needed
The videos could be better. Some specifications on some assignments would be nice. That way, we wouldn't be taken off points for not knowing why.
The video lecture format.
I do not think this course needs improvement. Everything was very clear to me and I liked the format of the class.
I feel it would be helpful to have videos of lectures, in lieu of audio associated with slides.
There is not much that needs to be improved. The only thing is that the videos and audio should be combined into one video.
No Comment!
personally, there's not much to improve on except grading assignments/exams soon after they are submitted. it's a good class, and well structured for an online art class. didn't even think art could be taken online considering it's such a physical class. very well done.
I think it's excellent. The only thing I could suggest is maybe a slide show or presentation with the highlights of each lecture--listing important details and material (if there isn't one already)--other than a slide with just the artwork of each module. I think it would be a benefit for visual learners.
This course could be improved by having the slides and audio in one download. This would make it easier to understand what the topic is about.

I would take other courses from professor Moana Nikou
We should be critiqued and be told on why we got points taken off so we know what to do next time.
Great class and great professor! He is very knowledgable about Art History.
Excellent course, and I had a lot of fun!
i thought Professor Nikou did a great job teaching us. It was nice that we could take this online and submit our work digitally.
This course was my hardest, because this was my first online course. I needed to get myself motivated. Thank you !
good job prof. Nikou, continue to do great things.
Great course
I would recommend this class to other students that want to take art.

30. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
Convenience of online class
I liked that the assignments.
I liked the hands on assignments that we did.
Doing the art projects is what I liked best about the course.
The fact that I was able to view other students work
I loved that Professor Nikou included slides along with his lectures. This was very helpful for me and made the class very interesting.
Interesting assignments
I really enjoyed doing the art projects.
Acctually doing the art
I liked how he displayed the class work as well as make comments on them so not only the artist can improve, but others can learn from his advice.
I really enjoyed some of the sketchbook assignments and art projects. The photography collage that helped us view cubism was by far my favorite and best work of art from the course. Some of the videos that our professor suggested to view were also very interesting such as the Keith Haring video on Pop Art.
I really enjoyed the art assignments the professor assigned. I also really liked learning about the history of art.
Answers email's quickly
I liked the projects we did, as well as the sketchbook assignments.
Creating art
The projects and sketchbook assignments.
The projects were fun.
The sketchbook projects, and the acrylic painting and collage project
31. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The lectures and videos didn't work too well.
I wish the next module would open once you complete the module before.
The lectures, and videos we had to watch.
I'm sure like many, reading chapters is what I liked least about the course.
At times the lectures were a little hard to understand and hear
There wasn't anything I didn't like in this class.
The lectures were sometimes a little difficult to follow.
Trying to listen to the lectures while trying to figure out which slide he was talking about because they were separate files, and did not match the lecture a lot of the time. The lectures were very long winded and difficult to understand, maybe because the pronunciation of some. Mon English words were muddled.... I'm not trying to be rude just honest, it was more confusing than helpful. Plus the Text reading was not useful for such an expensive book, the teacher used only his own lecture material for all the exams.
I didn't enjoy the fact that the lecture and the audio was separate, may in the future he can film his class or more so just him teaching his lecture.
-- snipped --
It was kind of difficult using QuickTime player to listen to the lecture and watch the slideshow because whenever I clicked the slideshow window, the audio lecture window would go in the background and was "muted." It wasn't that bad.
lecture audios were hard to listen too and some audios and slides wouldn't open
Honestly, there wasn't anything i disliked about this course.
I was thoroughly disappointed in the presentation of the lecture materials. The split between audio and visual aspects makes the review of the material a tedious task. Also some of the materiel was recorded from an in class perspective which I believe makes some of the lectures long and unproductive. I felt that I should not have had to listen to students thoughts for the majority of a 1 hour long lecture and find that the information pertinent to the test is actually only a few minutes of the lecture.
Exams because I barely understood and found any of the answers in the lectures that were given.
The lectures were from previous courses, and were sometimes really hard to follow because of the separate audio and video slides.
Going over the history of art that didnt show up on our exams

32. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Good, improve videos and lectures
Fun and easy course as long as you keep up with assignments and listen to the lectures.
-- snipped --
This course helped me to see art in a different light. Not to just look at what is in front of you. But, to interpret it to what I feel the artist wants to make a point about or how it makes me feel. It's like that saying that not everything is black and white. We should dig deeper for that deeper meaning. Learning the historical background and vocabulary of art was also very beneficial. At least now I have somewhat of the confidence to join in a conversation about art if I wanted to.
I liked this course a lot
excellent!
Really good
Art 101 was a really informative, interesting and enjoyable class. Professor Nikou is a wonderful teacher for this class.
I would give this class a B- or a C+ because I do t feel like I learned anything more than I already knew from my highschool and middle school art classes, and history...
fun class!
-- snipped --
Great course, very interesting, and very fun. Excellent professor as well.
really tough online exams and lectures through audio is hard to keep up with
Very fun online class, and i am satisfied with what i got out of it.
The course was fun and informative. Thank you
Great course, love the projects.

33. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Clearer exam questions. Some of the questions were difficult to understand.
This course could have been improved if he would have set his course work a little more organized and not so "in your face" and all at once. Everything was just too much at one time.
It's more of a suggestion because my computer takes so long to open the lectures (both slide and audio). To me, I would like to see an actual class lecture being videotaped so that both the slide and audio is in one teaching.
If he improved the lectures a little as far as sound it will be better to understand. It was also confusing because the lectures were actual class he had previously
I can't think of anything.
It would be better if the instructor keeps update QuickTime version. I have problem opening slides.
N/A
Have better clearer lecture styles that Are synced with the acctual slides you are talking about. Have any kind of mandatory class discussions about lectures or art projects. I believe art is something that needs to be discussed and I felt that was greatly missed in this class.
Film the class lecture instead of two separate downloads. and put the required pictures on the slide.
-- snipped --
I don't really have much suggestions. I guess cleaning up the file names would make things look a little clearer/less confusing.
More explanations through slides instead of having long audio lectures
The class is already great with the way it is. Though, more sketchbook assignments would be fun.
This online course may be improved by the way that he sets up the modules. The modules are somewhat confusing, but i understand how to work them and find the work that needs to be done. But it seems like it was just laid out for us to get it done.
update the lectures. I realize the purpose of separate slides were to keep students from listening to the lecture as a background noise and not fully paying attention, but sometimes I had no idea of what slide we were on. taking notes while trying to match slides made studying harder than it should have been.

He's not very nice.
This art course what taught well. It was easy to understand the teachings and to complete assignments.
This class was a wonderful online experience! I hope to find other art courses taught by Professor Nikou in the future.
Thanks for a fun, inspiring semester Professor Nikou!

All aspects!

hands on learning
I like that I can use the studio to take picture.
Professor nikou's attention to detail is what I like the best.
Getting to meet new people and learning how to use my camera correctly and taking great pictures.
I enjoyed the feedback.
30. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
none

nothing really. The he is somewhat to much but class is great overall.

31. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Excellent course
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.
helps individual grow in the field of photography
i loved it 100%
It's a great way to learn how to use a camera and take great photos
Fun
32. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
I don't think there's anything else that he could improve on.
It could be improved by more engaging tutorials on how to take a proper picture.
It could be improved by how we take our tests in class
33. Other comments:
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!
Nothing.

I liked it so much that I may take the course again
31. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course can be improved by having more projects, and by having more equipment to work with.
n/a
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?
Everything!
Art Projects
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.
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.
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.
I like doing the ion class drawing and painting.
The hands-on classwork that we did in class.
Doing artwork
Did fun projects and assignments.
I enjoyed learning from a professor who was passionate about the subject he was teaching.
the art projects/activities.
the projects throughout the whole semester were very related to what we were learning at the current moment
46. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
None.
-- snipped --
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.
N/a
I like least is there too much more about history of art rather than actually doing more art.
The exams were a bit hard
certain lectures seemed tedious and long.
Lectures
Class was based on lectures.
the book stuff and art history
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
* Showing 11 out of 12 survey responses.

 

47. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great
-- snipped --
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.
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.
I love the class and the teacher made it fun for everyone to enjoy art.
B+
Great art course, teacher taught the course well.
I really enjoyed this course.
its alright.
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.
* Showing 11 out of 12 survey responses.

 

48. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Doesn't need to be improved.
-- snipped --
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.
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.
More time to do art work Less time on lectures
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.
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.
could be more hands on.
the teacher should go over the lectures in class, instead of putting it on the internet.
* 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.
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.
Art projects
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.
The art sketches and projects were really fun.
That I can review my module over and over. I can work on my own pace.
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 videos provided helped answer questions about our projects.
The studio art projects were what I liked most about my online course experience.
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.
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.
Mapped-out timetables
Professor Nikou made us feel welcome and he would constantly remind us when something is due.
i really enjoyed the projects and the extra credit videos very interesting.
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.
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.
None
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.
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.
Nothing, I enjoyed this course fully.
Lack of interaction with online course classmates.
N/A
Nothing
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.
Art is very expensive
i disliked how the "Slides" doesn't work, i would only have to listen to the lecture to achieve criteria

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!
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.
Professor was always willing to help.
Having the opportunity to challenge my artistic ability and to improve my skills through learning the fundamentals of art.
The lecture and slides were very helpful and easy to understand. The exams were tough however I learned a lot from it.
doing the sketchbook.
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.
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 fact that everything was online and did not require me to physically go in to the campus.
Detailed timetable/syllabus
I enjoyed working on the projects and sketchbooks.
i liked the projects and sketchbook assignments. Assignments were assigned accordingly in an organized manner.
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.

44. My overall evaluation of this course is...
A grade
I give Moana Nikou an A for class presentation and organiztion. I love ART!
Great course and helpful professor!
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 course. I learned a lot about art history and had a lot of fun with the projects and sketches.
The modules are clear and you know what to expect. Allows you to review the lectures.
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.
Great class and would recommend to a friend.
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.
Easy to follow, informative
I would recommend this class.
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
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.
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.
More organized exams
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
This class would be improved by better slides and recording of the lectures. Maybe put the slide and lecture audio in the same file.
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.
I don't think this class needs improvement. Throughout the semester the assignments and tests were reasonable. Great class.
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.
N/A
Check the "slides" link on your modules. Slides link doesn't work for various students and also doesn't work on HCC library computers.
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!
Keep up the good work. Hope my opinion helps. Aloha
Great course!
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.
I enjoyed this class and I would recommend everyone to take this course.
Thank you for such a wonderful experience! I learned a lot and had a lot of fun :)
This course has been very well organized and I've found it to be fun.

39. What did you like most about your online course experience?
i liked most about learning new things and how to do some new art
While there were firm deadlines for exams and projects, this class was self-paced enough for me to work it into my schedule.
The work was conveniently spread out. I knew what was expected of me and Prof. Nikou was very clear with instructions.
I like how I use my creativity towards our artwork even though it is an online class.
I like the online course because I can study whenever and wherever I am available.
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.
I was able to do my work on my own time but still was able to keep up with the course.
i didn't have to go to the classroom.
Convenient
The professor didnt expect us to be on the computer every single day. He had clear and detailed information.
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.
Making things from scratch.
40. What did you like least about your online course experience?
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
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.
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 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.
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.
It was hard to understand what was going on and the things that were due since it's an independent course.
there were too many supplies to purchase. the pastels were only used once and it was a waste of money.
Nothing
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.
Least thing i like about this course is the format of the videos

43. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
i liked how simple it was it didn't get to complicating
The projects. After all the reading and listening to so many lectures, its great that you can have a hands on art project.
I liked how everything was on schedule and I didn't feel rushed or stressed.
I enjoyed creating all of the art projects and sketchbook assignments because simply I like drawing and creating art.
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 and sketchbooks.
i was able to complete my main courses while taking this gen ed course at the same time.
Extra credits
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.
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.
Creating new things.
The projects...
44. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
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.
N/A
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.
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 midterms every month.
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.
None
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.
N/A
45. My overall evaluation of this course is...
i think this course is great for art students that don't want to sit in an art class
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.
I liked this course because it was easy to follow and instructions were clear.
This course is fantastic.
I really enjoyed this class and strongly recommend others to take it with Mr. Nicou. He is very nice and helpful instructor.
Very informative. Mr Nikou is very knowledable with everything he teaches in this class. Very organized.
I was able to stay well educated within the class without forcing myself and extremely falling behind.
Excellent! :)
The course was great, no bad thoughts.
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.
that this course is a great course if you are curious about art.
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.
this course was great
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.
Every aspect of this course is really good. The only thing I would improve are the separate lectures.
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.
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.
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.
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.
None
-- 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.

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.
I liked that it was a studio based class
31. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
The slow start to getting into critical thinking projects.
Not Applicable
nothing
32. My overall evaluation of this course is...
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.
Very good course with a very passionate teacher
33. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Maybe have more smaller assignments. Also more guidance when taking photos on campus.

30. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
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.
Learning how to take pictures better.
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.
Taking the photos :)
I liked learning how to use my camera and developing my skills with the help of Nikou.
It's an easy to grasp course and can be easy to excel in if you follow the directions
Taking pictures
The examples of photographers, and assignments in technical form.
the photo projects
31. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
none.
I thought there should be some cameras available for the students that don't have five hundred dallors to send on a camera.
What I liked the least is the fact that the class is only two days a week.
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.
Doing the individual project was challenging and could not do what I wanted in the first place
There wasn't any one aspect of class I didnt like
Instructors eyes/grading was not objective. Also the body assignment was a poor choice.
printing the photos
32. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Easy class to understand if you want to get into professional photography. Very basic components in making a good photo.
It was a good class. I felt i learned a lot pictures and how to use a camera better.
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.
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."
Good, just not a fan of the independent study
Excellent
A decent class that could have had a better approach to the basics.
its fun
33. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
A little more open-minded about the quality of the picture; not everyone has the same perspective about a picture/photo.
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.
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.
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.
No comment
I don't feel there is anything that needs to be changed
For the body assignment bring in a couple models like in drawing classes rather than having us find them.
could have just one printing date.
34. Other comments:
none.
This was a great class and I would take it again.

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
The aspects of the course I like the best were the art and sketch projects.
Drawing and painting images of my imagination
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.
Hands on sketchbook and project assignments.
I loved the projects, they challenging but very fun to do. I feel the studio projects improved my skills in art.
the Lecture is clear and I feel like I am inside the class.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
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.
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.
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.
I didn't like the lectures
There is nothing I like everything.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It's a good course to learn about the introduction to visual arts.
Pretty good
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.
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
It is a great course to take over summer.
I was able to learn about art.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
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.
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.
Communication between students and professor could be improved
N/A
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
I am able to draw something and I got to know about history of art.
27. Other comments:
Loved the art projects and sketching though!:)
None, but I got to say this the Best art teacher and class I have taken in college!
N/A
Thank you Mr. Nikou, i have learned a great deal of art over the last few weeks.
Prof Nikou is very helpful and supportive.

24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
Subjects sometimes tend to lose interest.
None.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Satisfactory. Very clear instructions.
Great course. My writing has improved because this course required research, planning, and writing.
Great course that satisfies both DA and WI.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
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.
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.
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?
The fact that we were able to turn our work on our own time
I enjoyed the lectures and project assignments
I loved the fact that he encouraged me outside of the classroom to do my best!
Doing projects and sketches
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 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.
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.
That it was online and that I could do the homework anytime I wanted to when I was free.
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!
The projects and the freedom to be creative--and the fair grading of assignments, as well as feedback.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
A lot of work
nothing
listening to long lectures. having to click back and forth from the audio and slide.
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.
This was a great class and well constructed, I have nothing negative to say.
That I never got to meet him face to face.
I would have loved a little more elaborate slides.
At times I found it hard to understand his accent in the lectures, so it made listening and understanding a bit hard.
None!
Some of the project objectives were a little unclear. Some deadlines were shortened for weekly assignments.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Good if you discipline yourself in keeping up with the work
a fun, easy and informative class
somewhat okay
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 for anyone, would recommend it to all students.
Great course, great professor, fun projects/assignments.
Great course for general education
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.
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 would recommend it to ANYONE! He's an amazing instructor.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
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 dont think this course can be improved. It comes with everything you need and clear instructions.
Routinely review online course material that students need to view in the modules.
I don't know.
Only to keep the same professor and his style of instruction!
More projects? Other than that, nothing.
27. Other comments:
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!
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.
Good course. Thanks for having me a part of it.
Thank you to Professor Marty for opening my eyes to the visual arts!

23. Which aspects of the course did you like the best?
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 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.
I really enjoyed the art projects we did but I wish we had more art to do rather than art history.
I liked this entire lecture/course.
neither
course was easy to follow along with
The projects he made us do was fun.
i like creating project 3
I truly enjoyed learning the history aspect of art and how art has developed over the years.
not much
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?
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.
a few times my slide shows wouldn't load properly
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.
n/a
nothing
The lectures and quizzes.
the first part was the hardest for me.. trying to give detail on what art means to me
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 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...
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!
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.
It was an okay course.
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
to much random material with no clear focus or purpose
Great class, I would definitely recommend it to others
B+
i liked the course
I liked this course. It was fun and informative.
D. needs improvement big time
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.
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.
We should have more physical art assignments. Less quiz and lecture.
Great class
The volume on the videos was quite soft even with the volume turned up.
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 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 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.
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:
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?
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.
Learning how to use my dslr and all of its functions. Like depth of field, shutter speed and, ISO.
Taking so many photograph of different subjects.
The artistic freedom and ability to make our own choices of subject.
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.
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.
24. Which aspects of the course did you like least?
-none-
I enjoyed all of the projects Mr. Nikou assigned to the class.
That we only had time to shoot so many photos.
I can't think of any that i would not like about this course.
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.
25. My overall evaluation of this course is...
This course was very enjoyable for me and Mr. Nikou allowed students to fully express our concerns and opinions.
excellent
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!
It's great, I loved every minute.
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.
Take it. It's a good art medium to learn and a fun class.
26. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
More class excursions would be nice to improve this course. Also, being able to work more in the studio would be nice.
Nothing this course could not have been better!
If everyone was more enthusiastic this would be more fun!
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.
Not much to improve. He was pretty explanatory on the techniques and aspects of the projects he wanted.
27. Other comments:
Really great class learned a lot about photography and cameras.
