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.
content was eye-opening and very interesting.
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.
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.
Very organized.
I liked that we didn't need to get up and get ready for class.

I'm not used to online classes, and I feel like I might have done better in a classroom. But for my first online, it wasn't too bad.
N/A.
I didn't like that we had to do most of our assignments by wednesday
Not enough time to complete assignments.
27. Other comments:
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.
