16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Pearson Program had materials all in one area. Instruction on assignments were clear.
Assignments were easy to keep up with. The Monday @ midnight due date actually didn't help me. I ended up forgetting things were due.
I really enjoyed this class. I am fairly close to completing my Bachelor's Degree in Psychology and I have to say that this is one of the best classes I've taken so far. Dr. Lucas' class is very well organized. Her syllabus clearly defined what she expected from the beginning. The discussion boards and quizzes followed the syllabus timeline. The discussion board assignments applied to what we learned and read and I loved that. Each week we were applying what we were learning so it made sense and can be retained after the semester ends. I like, too, that she participates in the discussion board. I really like that she gives feedback on a regular basis. In some classes I've taken there is absolutely no feedback from instructors and it's almost like learning in a vacuum. She is not one of those instructors. She is also very easy to reach and responds to emails quickly. For high maintenance students like me, I like that:-)
Dr. Lucas responded to her emails in a timely manner. The course work and projects were interesting. The reading material and additional video's and web links were very helpful.
I had a great and very involved class experience. It felt like I was taking a face to face class.
I like the convenience of taking courses online. I feel I gain more knowledge about subject matters when I read, test and write about information that sitting in person listening to a professor lecture. I wish UH-Hilo offered more online courses for Psychology!!! Dr. Lucas is very good, effective and helpful!
good information
Great topics.
The weekly reminders, the consistency, the course materials and availability of the professor to answer any questions.
17. What did you like least about your online course experience?
A lot of reading
THE PEARSON ONLINE PLATFORM IS TERRIBLE. I would have paid an additional $50 for another format -- Kindle, PDF, text, anything. The online textbook is terrible ... it's hard to read, it'll autoscroll when I don't want it to, the page layout is really busy making the actual reading area on my laptop screen too narrow and it's just an overall annoying experience. It was really hard for me to read the textbook.
There was nothing I disliked about this class.
Finding instructions and requirements for the project was quite difficult. The instructor could of used the resources tab in laulima so students can easily find guidelines and handouts.
None. Dr. Lucas has a very great outline for her class, she is well prepared and follows syllabus.
The text book was not very descriptive and hard to read. The resources or discussions shed more light on the topics.
I tried to collaborate with other student on a project and was left doing it alone the last few weeks of the course. No reflection of professor or UH, I was just surprised and overwhelmed with new tasks.
timeline for assignments was confusing
The book was published by Pearson and the have a wonderful online site to help with multimedia resources like video's, little tests, and vocabulary. I really loved it.
18. The course site was organized well, and it was easy to understand what needed to be done each week.

Please please please please please please please don't use Pearson anymore ... Their reading app on the iPad is equally terrible as their regular webpage ...
I would highly recommend this class to anyone else interested in psychology classes.
I really enjoyed this class and all the interactions with other students through online chats and weekly discussions.
N/A
Dr. Lucas is a great assets to the UH psychology department staff. I would take any other courses she taught.
Some example videos were very interesting.
What a great course, the weekly discussions were meaningful and well organized, the book choice was excellent and the content and pace was perfect!

16. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I can't think of anything.
The flexibility offered by the course was good for my schedule. The length of time for reading the chapter and posting responses was also very reasonable. Too little time would mean that reading a 20-30 page chapter would be difficult along with posting an adequate response.
The online material that was provided.
17. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I didn't like how ridiculously difficult the quizs were for the most part.
The project at the end of the semester proved to be very difficult to finish, along with the weekly assignments. This is the first online course I have taken that has included this type of assignment, and it was difficult to complete.
The lack of discussion between students.

21. Other comments:
Dr. Lucas has a tendency to just throw anything on the discussion board, which is not only unprofessional but irritating. For example, if she wants to put up the course schedule, she just throws in the discussion board. We have a folder "resources" on laulima for a reason.

N/A
It was easy to learn the concepts by reading other students submissions and life experiences.
That is was online and I could work at my own pace (for the most part).
I enjoyed the group project:)
What I liked most about this course was that it allowed to me work at my own pace but still within the deadline of assignments.
18. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Group project and the over involvement of the teacher in an unorganized manner.
Due dates were scattered toward the end of the semester. It was very disorganized and confusing.
Like least? I don't think that's possible.
The 200 word replies because there wasn't enough information to reply about.
I think there should have been a specific section with all of the instructions. Finding specific instructions for different aspects of the projects was difficult. I think keeping an instruction folder for each module and each project would help a lot.
I liked everything about this course.

17. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked the real world examples we were required to provide each week, and the real world examples that made a lot of the material a lot more clear to understand. I also liked the articles that were used in the discussion post because it gave me more insight about the material in each chapter.
course was simple and to the point.
I liked our weekly discussions. Although this was an online course, I felt that this helped me to gauge my classmates personality and intellect.
Because it was online it was more accessible. I was able to work doing assignments into my busy schedule on my own pace. Assignments and due dates were clearly posted.
I learned how to balance both school and work in a timely manor.
We were given much freedom to do the work whenever we had the time.
I really enjoyed the freedom to do work and study when I wanted.
The way it was organized for group project. Discussion topics were interesting.

I know this is kind of out of the instructors control, but I didn't like that most of the other students only gave their opinions during the discussion post and didn't really apply much knowledge or terms from each chapter. It felt like a lot of people reworded the other students post. Sometimes the focal point of their post had little to do with the actual material, and had more to do with another persons post. It was difficult to respond to such vague post and those that were circulated over and over again.
the beginning of the class, myLab setup, was a bit confusing.
I disliked the group project the most. These projects are already difficult to do in a regular classroom setting and I felt that this was extremely stressful due to unresponsive partners. Yet, overall, if one person take initiative and accept that there will be that one member who would be no help, it went great.
Needed to go all over the site in order to find assignments and instructions, once I figured this out I did fine.
The fact that I didn't have to go into class made it hard for me to keep on track but I did finish it in the end!
Online group work
I disliked the communication between my group members because it was sometimes difficult due to time differences and lack of participation.
Nothing negative
19. The course site was organized well, and it was easy to understand what needed to be done each week.

Great course! Great Professor. I'll be sure to recommend it!
Great class!
Although this online course worked well with my schedule and covered enough amount of topics for an accelerated summer course, I felt that it could have been more challenging. But i am not complaining about the way this course flowed. It was great and the professor was a great communicator through forums and emails.
Overall good teacher, would take her again if another class was available.
Good class!
Would love to take another course from her.

27. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
I believe that doing a group project is already a difficult task, but was exceptionally more difficult because the class was online. I take pride in my work and enjoy doing projects that demonstrate my knowledge of the material. This group project was unorganized and I believe that in order for a group project to be successful in an online class the directions need to be mug more detailed and specific.
I think the group presentation was a little too hard to accomplish through an online class. Hard to get in contact with others to plan accordingly.
No improvement needed at this time.
28. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Very nice professor who wants to teach us as much as she can and see us succeed.
I felt that she came across as very passionate and knowledgeable about cross cultural psychology. She is a great instructor, I would not hesitate to refer students to enroll in her classes.

41. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The class was exactly what the syllabus said. There was no "subject to change" drama.
The posting of each reading assignment and being able to read classmates posting and responding to their posts.
42. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I really disliked the group project - I think it's unreasonable to expect us to coordinate a group project when the expectations for the project were so poorly explained.
Hard to get in contact with other students.
During this semester, there have been cable outages in my area, due to weather conditions, and not being able to do my class assignment from home.
43. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Very interesting. WOuld have been a lot more interesting in person though.
I feel that this course has opened my eyes to the many cultures around the world. The similarities and differences of each culture, compare and contrast. I enjoyed learning, I look at the world with clearer vision.

25. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked the convenience of it all. I still got to work and study at the sametime whthout worrying too much of getting up so early to looking for parking on campus. The discussions were also great. Not too sure how much I would have discussed- if the course was conducted in person just becauase of having the mentality of knowing someone else in class will speak up, esp. if its a big class. But with the online course, my opinions were out there twice a week, and I like that.
Very organized.
I liked that we had 10 set weeks and we knew what was coming up for each week from the syllabus. I also enjoyed the topic because I learned so much about it and it helped me grow personally.
I gained a deeper understanding of prejudice and discrimination and how to apply to my life. A lot of the material I was able to look back on past experience to relate to the subject.
Sharing personal experiences
content was eye-opening and very interesting.
I liked that we didn't need to get up and get ready for class.

27. Other comments:
Dr. Lea Ann Lucas you are awesome! :) I would love to take more of your courses, but I'll be graduating this semester. Loved your class!
Examples for assignments should be more clear and concise as to what is required in order to receive a certain grade. Clearer explanations on assignments would aid in the student's understanding of the concept.
Best teaching in all my courses I have taken online or in-person!
great teacher :)
i learned a lot from this course that i will carry with me through life. the information that we learned was very valuable and our thoughts and opinions were greatly encouraged. i really enjoyed taking this course, thank you for a great semester...

8. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
I learned more about myself because of this course, and it helped me realize a lot of things.
I learned how to find good references in psychology and how culture matters in every aspect of the field.
The many concepts we learned and how we could relate it to our culture and other cultures.
I definitely gained a bigger wider perspective of cross-cultural concepts and issues, learning to think on a larger scale rather than just what's around me.
It helped me understand how cultures around the world differ from my own.
I have a substantive knowledge of the principles in use in the field of cross-cultural psychology and I have cultivated my ability to articulate intellectual positions and argue from them using these concepts. The format and the well-structured class discussions contributed to this greatly.

13. How can the instructor improve the teaching of this course?
She was really helpful making comments on our personal discussions, unlike other teachers who would only write general things. She also participates and gives feedback and when we have questions she really takes the time to answer them. Best online teacher I had in Manoa.
No improvements needed. The course was structured really well.
This course was conducted by the standards of a writing intensive course but we do not receive any writing intensive credit! Why? Amount of writing should be reduced if no WI credit is given in the future.
Only by drawing it out! Which she couldn't as it was a summer course. It was tremendously well-organized for the duration. I don't tend to be a fan of group work, however. I think the group work could benefit from imposing (tough word I know) but imposing some structures that would encourage more dynamic grup interaction. Like say, requiring an interview that one member conducts and the other three have to interpret. That task would get them actively coordinating their research and perceptions. My group was a little... loosely organized lets just say. : ) But that was this groups' dynamic. I'm not sure what my experience would have been like in a different constellation. It was interesting to work with my all girl group : )

27. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Dr. Lucas is always there to help you out and remind you if there is something wrong especially if there is any technical difficulty, since it is an online class. She is very prompt in responding and has demonstrated a great understanding of the nomenclature. And the way the course is structured is perfect because it allotted time for the course as well as other classes. It was overwhelming at first, but when you get the hang of it, it is very much do-able. I loved it because despite the small amount of time, I have learned so much---it had substance because the online exchanges of views and insights made it a class that was never dull.
good discussions
I like how we were given the due dates of our assignments ahead of time and was able to work on own pace. The lecture notes were also very helpful.
Everything was really well-organized and we knew what to expect each week.
I liked the fact that many of us had different cultural experience and could share and relate to one another on the discussion board.
The subject matter is endlessly fascinating. Dr. Lucas had the right amount of structure coupled with freedom. As a class, we were oriented to a shared object of study, but we had the independence to explore it from whatever angles we needed to or compelled us most. That makes for a very fulfilling learing iexperience.
Dr. Lucas really cared about her students even though it was an online course. I can tell she really wants to benefit the students and not trying to make things harder than they are suppose to.
28. What did you like least about your online course experience?
group presentation
N/A
The second assignment was kind of tricky because we weren't able to all sit down in a room and pass ideas back and forth.
Not meeting my classmates : ( Or having time with them face to face. Its an online class and we don't have the technology for it yet really, but it has occurred to me that if there were some form of chatroom available, the prof could activate it on special occasions or allow students to activate it to speak in real time. Mainly one wants to stay synchronized with the class. Dr. Lucas helps structure that into the experience by breaking discussions into steps that give the discussion tempo and alleviate the asynchronous feeling of an online classes.
A lot of written work
