15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing, everything was great!
I didn't like some of the games on the MIT were formatted, but they were mostly beneficial.
If I was to pick out something that i least liked about the online course that would be the waiting of a chapter to finish before the next chapter could be open.
N/a
The class was great, but the major flaw was when laulima was overloaded and i could not connect to the server.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The teacher was very involved and helpful in everything! :)
I really liked the MIT activities. They really helped me.
I liked how everything was due at the same time every week. Predictable deadlines are great.
That it was online and the coursework and exam wasn't due until Sunday night, leaving the weekends to do online work for this class. It comes in handy especially with a busy schedule like mines, Thanks!
I like how we could go over what we got wrong or right on our test after each week.
Everything was easy to track and also the class was enjoyable.
The fact that I could do everything at my own pace, as long as I keep up with the schedule which was made very clear.

N/A
I wish that all sections had been open from the beginning so that I could work at my own pace. I might not have finished the course early, but it would have given me the option to work ahead before very busy weeks.
laulima and myUH
Computer interuptions such as the system failing (i.e. Laulima)
The time limit on quizzes and exams. I felt like there wasn't a decent amount of time to take them. I sometimes ran out of time on questions I knew, just because I didn't have time to write them in. 30 mins. For 35 questions was difficult. It's less than a min. For each question.
Nothing. It is a very easy course. Just need to keep up and remember to do the assignments.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Independent coursework worked well with my busy schedule.
time efficient
Self learned, the online practice was very helpful.
I really liked the medical terminology interactive website. It really helped me identify areas to study and gain a stronger grasp on the material.
able to work on my own time and pace, less wasted time travelling to and from school/ waiting for class to start, etc.
PASSING
There were a lot of fun activites to complete for the assignment. The MTI's are a fun way of learning.
doing exams and studying on my own time
So convenient for my schedule. Learned a lot about medical terms especially being in the health field.
Everything is due on Sundays. It's very organized and well put together.

Thank you
Please consider opening all exams from the beginning, with the same due dates. Working ahead when possible would have been helpful for me.

nothing
I did not get to see what the correct answer was for questions I got wrong on the quizzes. Even if I found the correct answer afterward, I wouldn't know if it was exactly correct or not.
There were a lot of glitches but that was due to Laulima and hopefully next semester the problem will be resolved.
What I least like about my online course experience is the tests. I feel like the test gets tedious.
n/a
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
very flexible because I also have a full time job
I liked that the tests can be taken on your own time at home. This is something that should be retained in the future for this course.
The learning was at my pace and I didn't have to go into class.
What I like the most about my online course experience is the interactive website for the course. It actually help me a lot on studying, instead of reading the textbook and breaking it down.
this was sort of a self paced class, you could study when you could. i also liked the interactive system that he had to help up study more.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
There wasn't anything that I disliked about this class, overall I felt it was a good introductory class to medical terminology.
Of my 3 classes I took this semester, Health 125 was the best. His course was easy to learn, I can use the medical terms daily at my job. And I enjoyed his teaching ethics. The medical professional website he uses is awesome!
work on my own time
I can do my exams and homework on weekends. I don't have to go to school to attend a class.
Sometimes the connection may not be well when taking the online quiz.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked how we always had a week time period to complete the exam. Everything was explained at the beginning of the course, so directions wern't hard to follow. There were also weekly emails letting the class know what were some concerns, or giving us pointers before taking the exam.
I could do my online studying at my own pace when I have downtime at work and when I am at home.

I like about the flexibility of the schedules given by the professors.

Nothing.
I just am not a fan of online because I enjoy the face to face learning.
The online website where we did study activities weren't 100% accurate when giving us answers.
Sometimes Laulima would lag.

Professor replies really fast and he's very helpful for always reminding us about deadlines every week.

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The course setup was very effective for me to enhance my medical terminology.
I liked how the professor encouraged us to get started and sent weekly reminders and encouragement to do our assignments.
All material was simple and to the point. Clearly explained instructions.
What I like most about the online course experience it is very convenient especially if you work most of the time. Having online course makes it more easier for other students.
I liked how Mr. Fachan e-mailed our class letting us know what chapter exam we would be on and what to expect. He's also gave us clues, and hints. He's gave us strategies on learning medical terminology. Mr. Fachan always reminded us if we needed help we could always e-mail him or comes to class and ask for help.
This online class was slightly easy, but there were times that I had difficulties with the assignments and exams.
Tests every week which helps me stay on track with the course. The Myprofessionhealthkit helped me prepare for all the tests and exams in this course.
Easy to follow, very independent.

Everything went so fast, that information wasn't really retained.. was more like cramming.. I wish we had more time to learn and absorb the information given
Quiz pictures not the same as text book.
ZOOL 240 is a tough subject and everyone would agree with that. What I hate most about this class is that the teacher does not provide any study guides. You have to study a lot and work hard. In addition, there is no extra credits that would boost your grade up.
Assignments felt crammed at the end of semester.

I have learned abundantly on taking this class. While taking this course, you will realize if medical field is the right career you would want to achieve. Although this class is hard, I enjoyed all the labs we did and learned a lot on the lectures.

Lab continues to be the biggest waste of time and money in regards to both ZOOL 240&241 courses. Although I feel 241 lab time and organization was slightly improved from the 240 course, time would still be better spent if our focus was not on the course lab manual. I feel the lab manual was daunting and the amount of information actually learned from them is minimal. Dissections and activities would be more productive if the instructor was actually the one who did the dissections to clearly show us the structures rather than us trying to figure out what to do with an instructor trying to cater to 17 different students questions at once. The amount of time wasted trying to find structures limits our ability to actually see and learn the live tissue structures which we need for our lab exams. Often times we were presented live tissues we had never dissected during lab exams. The majority of what we learned for the lab exams was done on our own time, during open lab, and with tutors, not the instructor. That scenario leaves too much room for miscommunication and error, which ultimately affects us in not only our grades, but our entire education going forward in our chosen professions.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The class went a lot better when I finally read through the chapter! Also, I liked the lab exams! I think they are a lot of fun and I get the most out of them! It was very helpful to have done the respiratory/digestive lab exam before the lecture exam.
Not an online course but quizzes and test were taken on laulima.
I liked that how the test were set up as well as the assignments.
It is an informative course, the professor is knowledgable and attempts to build a rapport with all students. The instructor makes use of the time provided as best as possible, but often times I feel his hands are with the way the course is structured to effectively share his knowledge with the students.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I was a little confused in the first half of the semester to get into the grove of this class, all i needed was time and I eventually caught on.
Nothing, everything was fine.
I had no issues with this online course.
Completing 10 online objectives should be optional, versus for a grade. I felt at first they were helpful but as time went on the only reason I continued completing them was for the points. I was able to learn the information without doing the objectives. Doing so should be up to the individual and their learning style and ability.
The timed tests. I did not like how we're given 30 questions to do within 30 minutes.
Wish there was extra credit
It was hard to keep up and stay focused and on time with my work.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked that we were able to work at our own pace, online courses are manageable because you can do your homework when you get home from work at 10 and 11 at night.
I liked that the workload was manageable with my other classes and that I had a weeks worth of time to get a chapter of assignments due rather than just two days or so.
work on your own pace
I enjoyed the required activities needed for each chapter. It really helped me grasp the concept of what would be on quizzes and exams.
Quick, easy to navigate, always open to my individual schedule, and immediate grades.
That every Sunday was the day that assignments were due and not random days to keep track of.
The interactives are fun and excellent to do.
Easy to follow and do the work.
He spread out course very well.
It was convenient didn't have to worry about going to class.

For the Health exams.. some points I had missed because I did not know the answer. For the questions I got wrong, I would have liked it if the answers were given after the submitting of the exam so I could look back into the book and in a way, learn from my mistakes; see what I did wrong. It would have been nice to have gotten the answer key of each exam once they were up and open for review.
It is a good course, easy to follow, and clear from the start. The professor is more than fair in many instances, often times when he probably shouldn't have been. The information is given repeatedly throughout the course, and very heavily in the beginning. Personal ignorance is one's personal problem.
It was good class to take.

The amount of time we had for tests and needing to go in to school to take exams
once i ran into technical problems while taking a test

Always kept us in the loop of when exams and activities were going to be due. Weekly emails.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?

Sometimes MTI's got a little irratating when I wouldn't pass it
great class
I just felt like we covered alot of information in a fairly short amount of time.
The one thing that shocked me in the beginning of the course is to finish 2 chapters in the first week of school. I wasn't prepared for such a rush into the book but that was just me. I wasn't too sure on how this online class went at first because I had only taken one online class last semester but it was Math 100 and it was totally different from this course.
I didn't dislike any part of this online course.
None Enjoyed this Course, My favorite!
no feed back or support on assignments
I did not like taking the exams because you would type in the correct answer for some and still get it wrong.
There is nothing that I disliked about the class.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The work was spread out evenly where I wouldnt have to cram everything and rush to get it done
schedual
The text that we used was really informative and was a great tool for me.
I love the Pearson Medical Interactive. I enjoy doing all the activities and all the lectures. I feel that I really made a lot of improvement from when i first started the course. I had taken Health Services Academy class in high school and it refreshed my memory on some of the medical terminology. All the videos throughout the lectures are also very helpful to me. I like to watch the informational videos on TV and the ones in Lab extends my knowledge on the diseases i learned about before. I always look forward to going on the Pearson Medical Interactive everyday!
This is a terrific course to take concurrently with A&P. It helped me a lot. I liked the interactive website the best. It was very helpful in learning the terminology especially because there are numerous activities that are engaging and fun.
Kept me busy and mind refreshed with doing assignments weekly.
it was convenient for me
I liked the fact that I could do it on my own time.
That you can move at your own pace as long as you complete the assignments by the deadline, usually Sundays. I really enjoyed the MTI interactive, it was very fun new way to learn the terms.

great
Professor Fachan kind of got tossed into our class due to a tragedy at the beginning of the semester, so I think that put him behind a little bit. But all in all I learned alot in this class and he had extensive communication with the class each week via email.
none
This was a great class that prepared me for my future major.
This teacher is good and always responds to his emails when students have questions or concerns.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
It was a lot of work for only one credit. It seemed that, due to the amount of time that this course required to achieve an A was almost as much as my 4 credit class.
I have done a lot of online course work and except for one bit of confusion I had with the syllabus the first two weeks I didn't stress about the course.
I think this class should be a higher credit class. I was expecting a lighter work load because it was only 1 or 2 credits.
The lag time with laulima, nothing to do with this course.
too many tests
Just always have to make sure im near a computer with good internet communication to get work done.
Well, in some exams, were not in the exams. Some questions were confusing and some questions were already asked as common sense.
n/a
the short period time to finish an exam, I want time to recheck my work
Some of the questions that I answered in the Medical terminology Pearson activities were marked wrong, even though it was suppose to be correct
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I felt like the work was reflective of what could reasonably be expected from a 1 semester hour class.
I like the amount of medical terms I have learned. The learning modules are awesome. I rally enjoy learning that way.
I enjoyed everything about this class. The weekly tests weren't overbaring. The interactive games were very helpful and made it alot of fun.
online activities
The tests and activities being easy to work on.
What I liked most about this course was that it was online and I could freely do my work with my normal daily schedule. It was also not very difficult but resourceful to do the activities and somewhat fun.
Professor Fachan's hasty responses
It was interesting and fun
I enjoyed learning medical terminology and how each body system works.

I think that this course would be better if the professor did not try to make many of the questions on the exam purposely tricky. It really made it meticulous almost excessively so, and overall it made me dread taking the exams.

Ummmm..... Mr. Fachan was very fair with exams. I would recommend his class if they want a free schedule. However, I would like to let him know that his replies could be sooner, if possible. I know he must have a huge class to take care, that includes other course of students. But, thank you for the help. ^.^

I didn't really like how we only showed up for class to take attendance and then we were able to leave. I thought it was kind of a waste of time.
It was not an online course but it should have been. In person class was purposeless with no in class instruction. All assignments were online so it should have been an online class.

i like least all of the critical thinking and clinical question that he post on laulima before the class begin it helps student on essay question on exam
This class was an in-class lecture. However, something needs to be done in improving instruction. I personally feel that students who register for this class, generally have an interest in pursing a career in the Medical Field, with an eagerness to learn from a knowledgeable person. When seeking help from him, he will reply with a question, not an answer, which will only discourage the student. My opinion is, us students pay high prices for each credit for our instructional classes we partake in based on the field of study, therefore, expectation would be quality of education, that will prepare us for our profession. Past students wasn't pleased either, but said we pay for our grade. My response was, true, but I'm not paying to receive an "F," so has no one spoke up. There response was "NO". They'll go to a different campus or instructor that is more effective.
Most of the time the images shown through the online experience were NEVER seen before,often times even by the professor himself and some were of very poor quality. We were often left with no idea where and how to identify the structures in the pictures because they were not part of the book or any information given in the course. I also feel that the online portion of the course left the doors open to too much dishonesty within students opposed to paper and pencil tests and quizzes because of the professors constant need to monitor each individual PC screen.

Mr. Fachan is very knowledgeable in this subject, however, class lectures are slow and boring. Observed many students using there own method of studying or learning on their own. Nonetheless, using other resources to grasp knowledge of material. Outcome was having to self teach yourself in order to pass. Granted the study of Human Anatomy & Physiology is a difficult and complex subject, but students would really benefit if an instructor is able to use his/her knowledge (from context) and simplify the information to an understanding that relates to modern life. Ensuring that the student will remain intrigued and interested in subject, rather than losing interest is best. In suggestion, I think he should incorporate more class participation and possible lecture activities, instead of relying heavily only on PowerPoint readings. He is a nice guy though. However, something needs to be done in improving instruction.

While I believe the professor has a deep knowledge of the subject matter, after nearing completion of the first part of the course I feel uninterested and completely tired of memorizing, rather than learning. A lot of the material learned from the course was knowledge carried over from another biological course opposed to the one currently attended. My biggest issue is not learning the material because the exams are so frequent that memorizing as much info as possible is the only chance to attain a decent grade. I felt that the labs were a complete waste of time which could be utilized in a more efficient manner, especially since they really added no value to any of the exams, be it lab or lecture. Most of the learning for the lab section was done on our own time and through the help of tutors opposed to the professor. The lab provided no situations in where they may later help us in the real life health professions the majority of us strive to enter. Those of us who have a true interest in entering the health profession will carry on regardless of how challenging and frustrated we are with what we are offered, and I believe that thinning of the herd is necessary, but not actually learning the material is disheartening. In all previous courses leading to this one I came away with an understanding, an "ooooh, that's why or how that happens" moment and unfortunately all I currently feel is dread because there is still another semester of the course to attend. Another 5 months of memorizing and realizing that the time we spent memorizing for exams will probably come back to hurt us the day we truly need to know the information. For the amount of time and money invested into a critical course, the outcome is hardly ideal. While I have put in many hours for a satisfactory grade, that should not be the last concern I have left for the course. Our final options are dealing with a course structure we are familiar with, or taking on another professor with a different teaching method in an already difficult class.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
i didn't like the exams, not only way the exams online half of the graphics during the exams were not working so we had to go based off a projector and have him flip through pictures while we answer them on our computer. it was just to hard to keep up with the teacher, as well as our exam having a time limit. the showing of pictures took atleast 30 minutes, which took up more of my time flipping through the exam to get to the number he was at to answer my question.
It's hard.
No extra credit. :(
The busy work took away from the time I needed to study for the course. Sometimes clearer guidance (especially at the beginning of the semester)would have helped with the heavy amount of studying needed for this class.
Nothing.
The least thinkg about my online course experience is the layout of the exams. It was difficult for students to look at the pictures that needed to be on the test instead of the projector.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Don't need to go class.
I liked being able to do my work outside of the classroom. It made it easy to get work done on MY time.
I liked learning so much new stuff, but overall the class is very overwhelming.
I liked how we got a second chance to take the A & P Quiz for the fullest points possible.
I like how we received a copy of our submission work.

overall i think he is a good teacher but i would recommend giving extra cedit opportunities, maybe being more prepared for class as well as having your exams prepared.
Very hard class.
I'm excited for next semester!
It would have been nice if the professor offered some type of make up exams for either the lecture or lab, or even both. All exams were quite hard and even though I studied a lot, I still did bad overall. The loads between students are hard and it was hard for me to balance everything and get that A... I think, that if there was actually a lecture exam after each one chapter, I would have been fine. Learning three chapters and preparing for them on one lecture exam was quite hard. I do appreciate how the clinical application and lab assignments were based on effort, because those were hard to come by as well.
I just wish Professor Fachan tells the students what exactly to study for, especially for the lecture exams. Other than that, I loved how he gives the student easily gained point from in-class work to online work.

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked the integration of new in depth material with the old last semester material. There was a TON of material, but it was split up accordingly, and it to more exams than last semester. That really helped to lower the stress level when studying.

How we needed to wait for our exam and assignments to open up
There wasn't anything it didn't like. I thought it was a good class.
Honestly there was nothing I did not like. This class was great
What i disliked in this class was the fact that when you have a question and you email him about the question it seems like his response is probubly talking very direct to you as if you supposed to know the answer....the work was graded after two, almost three weeks later, or sometimes not at all so i would have to always email him about it. The tests were not related to the book at all what so ever. The book talks about one thing and the tests were asking you about something else.
I am new to the campus so getting used to how to work everything online was a bit of a pain.
Lots of new words to know. I would recommend taking the class on campus instead of online.
I've got confused on how the grade tracking works, after awhile I did figure it out. ^__^
I didn't really find anything that I didn't like.
good
I LOVED this course! I do not see how it could have been better if I were to take this class in person. I really enjoyed learning about medical terminology and I plan to use everything I learned and apply it as I go into Nursing.
There were certain games that I would type the write answer, but it would say that I was wrong. Sometimes It would end up being slow.
I cant say that there isn't anything i didn't like about this course!
I asked the teacher a few questions and did not receive a response. I am really disappointed.

i like to take the exam of this class.
I had a great experience in this class. The only thing I had a problem with was the way sicknesses were handled. The policy is horrible and makes no sense. You have to come to school to give the doctors note the day of or you get no credit for the week. DUMB.
Nothing, I liked being able to do the work on my own time. It also allowed me to go at my own pace.
it was up to you to do the work.
I didn't like how some activities didn't help with the chapter exams.
It was a lot of hard work put into this coarse for only one credit being received. This class should be worth three credits just like any other class because of the amount of hard work and time being spent into getting a good grade in this course.
We have to do a lot of those online assignments.
This has nothing to do with the teacher, But I feel the online work was not helpful with the test at the end of the week.
I enjoyed everything no complaints !!! I liked the fact that we are able to use the program for up to 1 year after completing the course !!!
Some technical issues at times.

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked the simplicity of maneuvering through this online coursej.
it was easy
We get to see the grades right away when you take the exams.
I liked how it was online because I could do my assignments on my own time.
It tells you when each assignment had to be completed and turned in which helped me a lot.
That I could do it on my time
I liked how convient the course being online was
It was a good class that helped you learn a lot.
Even though you have to stay on top of assignments on your own, Professor Fachan was constantly updating Laulima about anything and everything
what i liked most was the online games, they really helped out in trying to remember all the concept that were taught in the book which gave me a better understanding of the topics explained in the book.
I really enjoyed the medical interactive activities. It really made learning fun. I would recommend to continue to use this method.
It's a great class, I don't really have one bad thing to say, I would recommend it to anyone who asked me if they should take it.
The setup. It acted like a hospital and it was really easy to navigate.
I have a very unpredictable schedule at work and it was hard for me to manage my time to study and do my homework. I took this class online because I can do it anytime and anywhere either on my laptop,iPad, or phone.
The thing that I liked most about this class is how self paced and organized Mr. Fachan made things. Its just like having this class on campus.
simple course
I really liked the Pearson Medical Interactive. It really helped me understand what was going on and incorporate it into learning in a fun way! I think it is an excellent program, and I would recommend it to anyone I know who is looking for a Med-term class
I liked how Professor Fachan gave us a week off of work for spring break. I enjoyed that week. I also like how the course was all about games, it helped me learn much easier.
I really enjoyed the online interactive part of this course! It really was helpful and after reading the material doing the activities really made the material stick!
I loved the wingered interactive activities. It really helped me to learn the subject.

I was able to work on it around my schedule
I liked learning on my own
He made everything really simple to follow and do. This was probably the easiest online course that I have ever taken.
I liked how our teacher would e-mail me to make sure we were on the right track. I liked the online program of the medical terminology website because it helped me learn a lot and kept me interested in what I was learning.
I like all the activities.
Convenient at my own time
i learned a lot from each activity.
I got to work at my own paste. The work and instructions were easy to follow and well organized.
i like to take all of activities of all sections in this class.
I liked that I could do the work on my own time, and I was given a fair amount of time to complete the assignments.
it was easy to meet face to face once a week if you had any questions.
I enjoyed how the class was a computer based course.
The activities were very fun and entertaining. Also, you could work at your own paste.
Extension of due assignments
I enjoyed the once a week class with Professor Fachan. He is definately a great Professor. I enjoyed him so much that I'm planning on taking him for Zoology !!!! Just can't get enough of him...absolutly awesome !!!!
I could do it at my own convenience.
I enjoyed my first experience with "online" course, Wingerd Medical Terminology. The last time I graduated from a college course, I had heavy, hardcovered books. I find that the interactive online course is not as difficult as I thouht it would be. If I had any questions, Prof. Fachan replied to my emails promptly with a complete answer(s) to my question/concern. I appreciate Prof. Fachan's sense of humor and humility. I enjoyed going to class!

Really good instructor!
overall this class was a waste of time.
This class is great! I would recommend others to take this class!
I'm really sad that this course is ending...I had so much fun with it. This is kind of off subject, but it helped me understand Grey's Anatomy....haha. I was able to use what I learned to figure out what they were talking about. Also, my mom is a nurse, so she and I would quiz each other on terms. I absolutely LOVED this course!!!
I received incorrect marks on two of my exams and I did not receive a reply when I sent messages to the teacher. I also asked the teacher a question at the beginning of the class and did not get a response at all.

The only downfall to this course is the Lab. The anatomical/ human portions of the lab were good, but it lacked the live specimens that were needed on some tests.
The workload for this class was overly heavy. It had passed the point of "a good way to study" and just became too much to handle, and too many pieces to keep track of: the Pre- and Post-Quizzes, the Clinical Questions, the Lab Homework, the Lab Quizzes, the Lecture Exams, the Lecture Quizzes. I didn't feel as if there was much time to dedicate to quality of work and actually learning the material, it felt like I was jumping from one assignment to the next in order to finish everything.
Can't wait to take Zoo241, with professor Fachan :D

14. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I did miss not having the lecture class which is alot of good information
Overwhelming amount of material to learn in such a short amount of time. Along with additional assignments and labs. I don't think the lab book work and labs helped with our material in class. It was unnecessary.
My rating of average has nothing to do with Professor Fachan and is simply because this class should not be offered as an online class. The subjects are very difficult to learn on your own and a lecture class would have been better. I would not have take. This class online except that it was the only thing that worked with my schedule. I believe if this class is to be held online there needs to be video lectures to guide students. All the written material is wonderful but having a professor explain the topics would have been so much more helpful.
Short time to review book.
15. What did you like most about your online course experience?
That it was divided into a hybrid class having to meet at Lab once a week.
I like the fact that we don't need to attend a lengthy class to know the material. Learning at my own pace is better than trying to absorb all the information at once.
If it wasn't for Course Compass this class would have been near impossible! Very disappointed to hear the company is no longer offering this software after this semester. Online MP3 and topic lectures were a life saver, and online practice quizzes are extremely helpful.
Mr. Fachan was very helpful and he really give as enough information we need to succeed this class.

Professor Fachan is absolutely patient and so very nice, willing to schedule exams, homework and labs around what is best for the students.
Professor Fachan was very helpful is answering questions we had regarding material we covered on our own for the online lecture.

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
At the beginning of the semester I simply asked one question, and the professor snapped back at me through email using all CAPS telling me that if I don't know the actual to my question I should drop this course and take it again later, really gave me no motivation at all to work hard in this class and it really affected my grade. If i was very confused on anything, i didn't even want to ask, i would just guess and hope that I was doing it correctly. The test and assignments each week are fine, but the test given every two weeks are very hard, and we are expected to practically memorize the entire book instead of what is actually necessary. The work load is way to much!
I needed lecture time. I liked it, but I want to hear the teacher talk about the course.
I did not like taking the exams at a UH testing center. I live and work too far from a UH campus and it was very difficult to get there. I take online courses because I live so far away from a UH campus or community college.
nothing loved it
The due dates are too close from when the assignment opens.
OMG! I think I should have physically attended this class. I feel if I physically attended this class I would have retained more information. I couldn't believe how much parts of the human anatomy and it's bodily functions there is. It was hard to keep up because of all the definitions that I had to keep track of. I think Mr. Fachan must have realized that because he allowed us to take the quizzes more than once for a chance at a higher grade.
Nothing, this class was GREAT!
This was my first online class ever. It was very good. Each week there was a quiz on each chapter and every two weeks there was an exam on two chapters. However, I did find navigation of Pearson's websites confusing. If there were online videos posted by the professor to help explain difficult concepts would've helped too.
Nothing at all.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I can do assignments in the comfort of my home and I don't have to go to the campus.
The course schedule was intense but it kept you on track.
i didnt have to waste gas, and it made me study knowing i didnt have a teacher student learning environment
It's easier than an in class course.
I liked that Mr. Fachan gave us more than one chance to complete our quiz for a higher grade.
This course was great! Great sources, online lectures and online powerpoints! Quick email responses and very good directions. The emails given before each test were very helpful! I have nothing to complain about with this course! It was better than expected for an online course, I loved it!
Organization. Quizzes that were due were always at the same day each week.
Everything went well.
17. Other comments:
Professor really needs to learn how to motivate there students and not judge us through online classes. I will never recommend him.
cool
It was an "eye-wakening" experience. I think that distance education classes should have some kind of coding system such as A for heavy reading, B for extensive research, C for heavy definitions, etc. so that students knows exactly what to expect and maybe consider physically attending a class.

I would rather take instructor based classes. Interaction with instructors help to learn material better.
Nothing. It was my first time doing and online class and i loved it!
none that I can think of
There wasn't always someone to remind me about what was due, but that's what I expected. I completed all my assignments on time, but I didn't put as much studying into it as I should have.
There is no face-to-face contact which is fine.
Nothing
Nothing!
Some of the test questions were tricky, they had several possible answers.
That it was worth only 1 credit!!!!!!
I felt that this class should have been a 3 credit course. With the amount of work that was done, it was well worth it.
like everything about it
nothing
No complaints.
I don't like the quiz where it is timed and it's giving me pressure. Sometimes my internet is slow.
when somthing would go wrong with my own computer
No extra credit.
Not much communication
Even though sometimes the online interactive program gave me a hard time (i.e. wouldn't load, kept freezing, didn't record my scores) I felt the program really helped prepare me for the exam at the end of each week. I felt that doing the 10 activities really helped me learn medical terms and helped them stick.
I miss the interaction with the teacher face to face, but found Mr. Fachan always responsive and very willing to help whenever i needed the help!
nothing
I loved everything about this course.
Nothing comes to mind.
i did not like the fact that we had an in class lecture portion but everything was online and i understand the in class was just in case we needed help but i would have liked more interaction with students and teachers through the in class lecture part of this course
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
He made it clear about what was due every week, and i enjoyed doing my work in the 'hospital floors.' It made it more fun to learn things rather than just read the chapter every week.
I enjoyed the time availability, which made it easier for me to manage my time with my kids as well as class.
With the activities online and flashcards, it helped me to learn the vocabularies.
The ability to interact with the website in order to learn.
The activities were really helpful throughout the course.
Work is somewhat self-paced.
I love the independent study and the initiative that is expected of the student for online courses. Everything was returned in a timely manner and the problems I did have, the teacher replied almost instantly and was available to help. :)
perfect for my schedule
I liked that Professor Fachan was always there to answer any questions I had and answered them pretty quickly.
Our professor was very clear about expectations and explained things thoroughly through e- mail. I liked the book and the online access. This was a fun and interactive way to learn.
The thing that I liked most about the course is that the worksite for the course was very helpful.
I have taken numerous online classes and I enjoy it! It is self-directed and I can do it on my time.
The exercises were the same type each week. So I wouldn't have to worry about looking through different things all the time in order to complete the chapter
What I liked most about this online course was studying and playing the hospital games. I thought it was very fun and interesting how this course went.
The teacher kept up with us, always sending emails on what's going on, really cared about us.
I enjoyed everything! It was very interesting learning about the different areas of the body and understanding the breakdown of the word.
The activities that was on the website that he had for us. Money well spent.
I liked the activities that we got to do online.c
flexability
the pearson online activities was very helpful
The coursework was clearly presented and easy to access. Instructions were clear on all assignments and almost all work could be completed without confusion of the online systems.
Online is fun because I have been doing my work during my free time.
I have enough time to do the course work
i could do my work on my own time
The online materials were great. It helped to reinforce the course material to better understand and learn it. It was fun.
Doing activities online
I liked having each exam and online assignment due every Sunday. It was consistent so I didn't need to worry whether I was missing an assignment or exam.
I was very pleased with how organized and efficient the process was! the syllabus was followed to the letter; things were ready within the times noted; grades were posted very promptly and i always knew that i could reach the instructor. I was even provided a phone call reply to one of my emails in the evening! Mr. Fachan went out of his way to assist and ensure that i was set up properly with the testing site and that my quizzes and activities were being properly credited to my account. This was my first online course and i was very pleased with the flexibility and the ease of communication on line. Mr. Fachan is to be complimented on his time management and organizational skills! he has obviously done this before and knows what he is doing! I would definitely recommend this course to others! it was very helpful in my field of study and the methodology of learning using the online materials and the website was fantastic! i really got a great deal out of this class and am so glad i took it!
it was great. the interactive part of learning helps out a lot. gives you everything that you need to take a test.
I absolutely loved the interactive activities that we do in the hospital online. It was not only fun, but it made learning medical terminology much easier.
Attendance was not required Assignments were simple and straight forward Professor was extremely helpful
i loved that the medical terminology course helped me understand more about other courses i took within the same semester and i really enjoyed that professor fachan responded to every email i sent him within a day
17. Other comments:
Thank you. I really enjoyed this class and have already recommended it to 4 other people. :)
none.
I would definitely recommend this online class with Fachan to other students.
NEEDS TO BE 3 or 2 credits not 1! I spent a lot of time memorizing these terms!
LCC should have more classes in the medical field. Especially if it's on a website that would help people that doesn't have the experience with this field. It makes me want to learn more especially realizing this is what i would like to do in a career...
n/a
N/A
I strongly recommend this course.
Class material organized and distributed evenly. Although it did take a lot of time, the online activities (MTI) was great. Good class. I learned a lot.
Professor Fachan responded to emails quickly and allowed me to take an exam early because I was traveling out of the country. Great in responding to emails and helping with any questions I had over the course of the semester.
thank you Mr. Fachan for giving us an opportunity to learn and enrich our skills and for your equity and fairness in leading such a team though the semester! i feel like i really accomplished a great deal this semester. The flow of work was steady, and the time committment about 4-5 hours per week, but the ability to work at any time was such a bonus! I am very grateful for your time in replying to my many emails, questions and comments. This first experience of an online course for me was so positive that i am definitely going to continue to use this method of study for future required courses. I hope all the Professors are as great about communicating with the students as you have been. blessings to you and yours! Toni
an excellent course and professor.
I highly recommend this course to all students.

I actually liked my online course experience
It would be easier to have the deadlines for pre/post quizzes and clinical questions listed on the syllabus course schedule with the exams. That way, I can coordinate my study schedule better in advance.
I didn't like how the lab did not really reflect what we were learning.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked the fact that my work is online and I was able to do my work at any given day and time.
flexibility and lots of resources online.
I liked that it was online, and more of an independent study.
17. Other comments:
Extremely hard course and it needs help revamping the outline of the course. All material feels like its squeezed into the allotted time frame over the semester and its not enough time to absorb the material given.
Thank you for this semester Professor Fachan

15. What did you like least about your online course experience?
online assignments and lab quizzes
The lab quizzes often were completely inconsistent with the study materials given. The amount of material in the textbook is overwhelming and the depth of the physiology is unnecessary for this level of college course. Clinical questions are given entirely too much emphasis and straight up fact based material cannot be absorbed in the amount of time given. Questions should be screened for general diagnosis, not for conjecture or possible conflict with other symptoms...WE ARE NOT ALL GOING TO BE DOCTORS SOMEDAY.
I didn't take the online course. I took the in class one. But in class, the least thing I liked was that we had to spend money on uneccessary things for the class.
Professor Fachan was very clear with what he assignments need to be done. He gave us at least a week to do the assignments. Didn't give us any last minute things.
16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
i liked that it was very straight forward and easy to understand and adapt to
I really liked that there were no pre/post quizzes this semester. Instead, there was one quiz for each chapter, which didn't take up as much time. Also, I liked how all the Power Points are provided on Pearson so we can use them while we're reviewing for the exams.
Having a wealth of material to vary study methods is always nice.
The thing I liked most was that he was a funny instructor, who never grades hard, and always makes the class feel comfortable.
IT WAS GREAT!
17. Other comments:
I thought Professor Fachan was an excellent teacher, and did a great job at teaching this course. Although this isn't the easiest course to take, it did challenge me, and I can truly say that I learned a lot of information from this course.
Professor Fachan needs to study this course. He has no clue what is on the tests, quizzes or even what is in our texts. He may be knowledgeable in both physiology and anatomy but this does not help us when he does not know the material that we are being tested on. He is also not very well briefed on his own syllabus. He needs to liven up his lectures, by the end of the semester the lecture days were ghost class rooms for good reason...anybody can read a slide. Quality and Control in this course overall is horrid. I have experience in this subject matter. Get it together, it is just sloppy.
Thomas Fachan is an easy going guy who I would definitely recommend to others. I enjoyed being in his class for ZOOL 240 and ZOOL 241.
