19. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I enjoyed learning about the legal field. It's something I never thought I'd have the opportunity to do, but I did, and I enjoyed this class very much. Mrs. Kiriakos is a nice teacher who is fair and understanding.
Nothing
Didn't need to deal with parking. Also the flexibility to work on your own time within the boundaries of due dates.
Able to do the assignments each week at my own pace.
I liked everything about this online course experience.
The teachers encouragement, and attention to student success.
the textbook was used appropriately for the online assignments.
I enjoyed building legal correspondence and letters. I was different being on the other side and learning all of the internal business as a paralegal or attorney.
20. What did you like least about your online course experience?
nothing.
The way the teacher communicated with students. She didn't offer any help, there was no interaction with other students.
Face to face communication with instructor and classmates.
I didn't like the response time for assignments turned in. Sometimes it would be weeks before it was returned. When taking the quizes every week, whenever there was a fill in the blank question, I had to have the exact word in order to get that question correct. Examples would be: beneficiary vs. beneficiaries and revocable living vs. revocable.
There is nothing that I didn't like about this online course experience.
The assignments weren't always returned in an adequate amount of time to know if we were on the right track. 5:00 p.m. is an uncommon time for a due date. 11:00 p.m. is a standard most teachers use which I feel is fair and adequate especially on a Friday. The schedule would be better in excel with due dates clearly defined.
the assignments didn't open up with adequate time to do assignments and sometimes never opened at all. Sometimes the grading lagged so far behind that i for the beginning of the course i couldn't figure my grade or get feedback on assignments to help with future work.

21. Other comments:
Thank you Mrs. K for a great semester. Hope I have teachers like you in the future.
The teacher did not care about the students. She only started being nice the last two weeks of the semester
Leslie Kiriakos is very detailed in correcting homework assignments and would give feedback on errors, which I really liked and appreciated. She would also praise and encourage us as well. During the first half of the semester, assignments were not being returned on a timely basis, which I used as a measuring tool on how well or not so well I was doing. Other than that, she's a good instructor and would respond timely to my emails.
Thank you, Ms. Kiriakos!
