17. What did you like most about your online course experience?
N/A
That is was online and I could work at my own pace (for the most part).
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.
I enjoyed the group project:)
It was easy to learn the concepts by reading other students submissions and life experiences.
18. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Group project and the over involvement of the teacher in an unorganized manner.
Like least? I don't think that's possible.
I liked everything about this course.
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.
The 200 word replies because there wasn't enough information to reply about.
Due dates were scattered toward the end of the semester. It was very disorganized and confusing.
19. The course site was organized well, and it was easy to understand what needed to be done each week.

Great job! I wish there were more professors like her.
:)
Professor should work on communication skills and I could do without her snide remarks. Needs to work on her clarity and show consistency.

17. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I really enjoyed the freedom to do work and study when I wanted.
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.
The way it was organized for group project. Discussion topics were interesting.
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.
We were given much freedom to do the work whenever we had the time.
course was simple and to the point.
I learned how to balance both school and work in a timely manor.
I liked our weekly discussions. Although this was an online course, I felt that this helped me to gauge my classmates personality and intellect.
18. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I disliked the communication between my group members because it was sometimes difficult due to time differences and lack of participation.
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.
Nothing negative
Needed to go all over the site in order to find assignments and instructions, once I figured this out I did fine.
Online group work
the beginning of the class, myLab setup, was a bit confusing.
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!
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.
19. The course site was organized well, and it was easy to understand what needed to be done each week.

Good class!
Great course! Great Professor. I'll be sure to recommend it!
Would love to take another course from her.
Overall good teacher, would take her again if another class was available.
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.
