Professor Sebastian was an outstanding teacher. She always helps her students learn materials in a way using relevant scenarios making it easy to understand. She makes it a point to walk around class during group activities in order to help students with projects and ideas. Even after class is finished, Professor Sebastian helps students on class assignments in the computer lab and takes it step by step so that all can understand. Sebastian is enthusiastic about her class and is always helping anyone whenever there is a need or misunderstanding. I really appreciate her patience and am extremely glad to have had her as an instructor for my bus 311 class!
Very pleasant professor. Keep up the good job!
She is awesome!
None
Professor Sebastian is a very good teacher. The material is covered very detailed and questions are always welcomed. If she didn't know the answer on the spot she would take her own time to research and answer our questions in the following class. She is very kind and responds very quickly.
She was an excellent professor! I truly enjoyed learning the class. She made it easy to understand the concepts of class.
Professor Sebastian is very organized and informative. I learned a lot from this class.
overall I learned alot in the course. I think the netlab assignments are good to learn as we might need these skills later in our jobs
Ina Sebastian is a great professor, she showed care about students.
She thoroughly did her research! Had we questions she could not answer at the moment she would look it up by next class and give a good answer. Also enjoyed in-class student activities, very engaging.
The teacher was great. There was nothing she could have done, but it was just a really dry subject.
One of the best teachers I've had at Shidler. I highly recommend her.
She is very helpful with assignments and always willing to assist in many ways
I enjoyed this class very much, but I sometimes felt overwhelmed with the amount of information that was presented to me in class. If there was a small break in the middle of the class, I feel that I would be better mentally prepared to pay attention to the presentation in the latter half of the class.
Ina is a super good professor. She's reasonable and understands that our course load can be heavy at times. I appreciate that she's willing to help us by answering our questions after class or via email.
She was very nice and timely in responding to emails. I liked the group discussions.
Great teacher and very fair when it came to tests and assignments. Would definitely recommend to other students!
very knowledgeable with her lecture slides, she summarizes most of the content and reads examples from the powerpoint to help students understand the content. feels like a fast paced class though since all she does is lecture, completely fine though she loses the focus and interest of the class i believe. overall very friendly, and helps students succeed in class when they finally are ready to pay attention come homework/test time, though i feel bad that other students are taking advantage of her kindness.
the professor always ready for students' question. If we don't know how to do an assignment such as netlab, she always gave us how to touch an assignment or she comes to coputer lab to teach us. Thank you for this semester.
I like the way the class is set up.

Ina Sebastian is a really great teacher! She takes the time out of her schedule to assist students to make sure they understand the content and assignments. She is really understanding and tries to do all she can to make sure you can excel in her class.
Professor Sebastian is nice and willing to help her students. Even though the context is dry, I was glad to have a supportive professor to help the class along.
I feel that she is a great professor and she shows that she truly care about her students. The only suggestion I would have is to remove the e-commerce project because I do not feel like it is relevant to the material we learn in class.
Professor Sebastian was very helpful with ensuring that I understood the material. She always helped me and got back to me asap with answers to my questions. Definitely a knowledgeable professor and wants everyone to succeed.
She was very understanding, and showed a genuine interest in making sure her students learned and did well.
Tries to do her best in assisting students and making sure that they will walk away from the class with a decent grade and knowledge regarding the subject.
Professor Sebastian is a great teacher. She cares more about student's learning than set of standards of assignments that needs to be met by specific deadline. Flexible and communicates greatly. I actually learned something in this class and will keep her assignments for future reference.
I enjoyed this class, you did a great job, However, I just have one comment that may be helpful for you in your future classes: You give a great lecture, however, when you start a new lecture, you spend anywhere from 15-30 minutes reviewing the previous lecture. It may be helpful for student who may have missed the previous lecture, but for me, being in class everyday, it seemed a bit repetitive. Here's my philosophy, forget the students who missed class --* If they missed your lecture it is up to them to review the powerpoints and get caught up on the material.* But other than that, you did a great job, ohhh and one more thing, maybe try to get the class involved a little bit more. I know we do little things with our groups sometimes in class, but in general, but throughout the lecture try to get people to get involved a little bit more so we can get people off their computers all the time and focused in on what we are talking about. It'll catch people off guard and make class a little bit more entertaining. Again, great job though! :)
great professor
Ina is a great instructor. She presented the class material effectively, showed a passion for the subject, and was very approachable.
All around best professor i've ever had at UH ever. The only downfall was that it was clear that other students would take advantage of her leniency. This professor knew everything about the material taught, was able to explain everything patiently in an understanding manner, and was very understanding of students and life situations. 10/10 would recommend
Professor Sebastian is always helpful when you are stuck. She cares about the subject matter and her students to understand it.
Overall, Professor Sebastian was a great teacher. I went into this class with a negative view on this topic, but I have definitely learned a lot of really valuable information. She gave challenging assignments, but offered a lot of help along the way. I only have one complaint, which is that the PowerPoint presentations didn't always load properly on my own computer which makes it harder to study. I would recommend converting the presentations into PDFs for student use.
She is nice and very helpful.
Professor Sebastian is really knowledgeable in Information System. She is very organized and helpful.

I would have liked a more detailed description of the semester project. I feel like whenever we discuss the business project, I don't know what needs to be included in the project and the final presentation. Like a set of instructions or guidelines for the project. The powerpoint is very helpful outlining everything; however, when part 1, 2 and 3 need to be turned in, I feel like I am missing a whole chuck of information. With lectures, there is so much information to cover, I sometimes get lost and don't know how some things pertain to the subject matter. There is just too much information sometimes. Maybe a more condensed outline or something to help aid the students? Study guides are helpful for the midterm. Ina is really helpful and understanding. I believe she tries her best to help students learn the material. Always available and flexible on deadlines. I love that she is flexible on deadlines because sometimes I do need the extra time. It's really valuable to help balance everything in my life (school, work, family, clubs).
She always help student when they need help. Great teacher
She's a nice teacher and very understand. Always willing to help.
Very friendly and helpful professor!
Ina was a very straight-forward teacher and easy to follow. Although, studying for the exam can be a little more clear on how to study and prepare.
GREAT PROFESSOR
