Mr. Lynch-Urbaniak is the most responsive online instructor I have ever had. When I email him with a question or problem he normally responds within minutes, including on week-ends. I for one do not like English, however he made it extremely simple and for this I am very pleased. Based on my interactions with him I would gladly take another course from him, inlucding another English course. I wish all instructors were as responsive as he is!!!
There was nothing I did not like in this course.
The only thing I liked the least about the online course experience was that you had to make sure to be responsible enough to keep up with all the assignments.
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I really liked the learning experience that English 100 on-line gave me which is time to do the required assignments at my own pace, As long as I submitted it at the date and time it was due. Professor Urbaniak was very nice and patient, Great Teacher!
The convenience!
The power points were well detailed. The instructor made sure you were aware of any new updates.
I liked all of the assignments for the semester being posted in Laulima from day one. This facilitated my ability to get ahead when I had the time and to stay ahead. When I am ahead of he power curve everything seems simple. When I only get weekly assignments on a weekly basis it seems much more stressful and harder to do.
This course being hybrid. It was online but we still had the opportunity to meet, and he also extended the opportunity out to meet us when we needed it to help us excel through the class.
I liked how this online course is very independent, you don't have to attend classes, you just have to do things on your own time. I also liked how it was hybrid, so the things that may have been hard to understand, were explained in the three face-to-face classes.
8. I developed more confidence in my ability to communicate effectively through writing.

4.6 5 0.55 Freq(%) 0 (0%) 0 (0%) 0 (0%) 2 (40%) 3 (60%)
9. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The forum conversations with my fellow classmates, Very nice and interesting conversations that we shared on the varias subjects.
Becoming interested in reading & writing.
The well detailed and organized powerpoints
How responsive this instructor was to the students. Actually I wish I had the ability to know what I will remember most from this course in 10 years. It is one of many required courses for the degree program.
The content that he taught. I STRUGGLED with writing. I did not even know where to start an essay. He gave me the best foundation to build on and now writing SO MUCH EASIER because of what he introduced to me.
I'll probably remember this course most by how helpful the SUTW system is, like how you can simply change a paragraph into an essay and how short and effective these essays can be.
10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
Taking this course has helped me to write paragraphs and essays better!
Reading, writing, speaking properly, understanding and percieving how others speak and write as well.
I learned how to write a full body paragraph, basically from head to toe.
I am 58 years old and have lived without having to deal with English as it is taught in college so I really do not know how it will benefit me. However I have learned that there can be serious consequences of plagiarism. I have learned to leave out slang in writing formal documents. I have learned there is always a better way to write something.
How to better express and explain myself in writing. To be more confident in my writing ability.
I will benefit personally from this course through the skills I've gained, like becoming more responsible and independent.

Great Professor and very positive attitude.
N/A
Whether online or in person I have no problems articulating myself. Mr. Lynch-Urbaniak has done a superb job of teaching this class, he responds to students quickly, has offered to meet with students on a one on one if needed, seems very sincere in his offer to do so.
He is a great teacher. He is more of a coach than a dictator. He wants his students to undertand the matieral and get ahead and not bash us for the minor errors that are made. I'm glad I took his course, EXTREMELY glad actually. I'm so much better at writing because of the material that he taught.

6. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I did not dislike anything.
That after making sure corrections were done and tips were reviewed and put into my new assignment, I'd still get a really low score on my paragraphs. It was frustrating because I'd fix everything he said to fix and I'd feel really good about my assignment only to receive a lower score than before!
I didn't have any problems with my online course.
With this course I don't have any negative experience. Maybe that you don't get your answer RIGHT AWAY if you have a question. But the teacher always responded as quickly as he could.
There is nothing I did not like about this course.
Nothing! Everything was great!
Nothing
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I liked the way that Professor Urbaniak set up the course (timeline wise) and I liked the flexibility that this class gave me to complete my work.
That the assignments were spread out
I liked how my teacher sent email reminders when things were due.
I like that I can study at my own pace. There's is no time pressure.
There are a few things I appreciated during this semester however I really appreciated the response time and feedback we immediately received.
That he really made it easy to understand on how to write an essay
The simplicity and the fact that I still felt involved even though the class was online.

The writing style that was the basis for the course.

The set-up on how he taught how to write a paragraph and turning it into an essay.
fun and effective
I will remember how organized the assignments, video's, power points and rubrics were.
His color coding techniques
The writing process.
10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
I learned the SUTW format which will probably benefit my essay writing skills in the years to come.
He made a PDF which has simple step by steps on how to write a paragraph and turning it into an essay. To me, that will continue to stay in my computer so that I can look back on it as a reminder when I'm stuck.
I've learned more about the topics we went through. Also, how to organize and structure a paragraph/essay
The main thing I learned from this course is that I have the confidence to write a SUTW paragraph and essay.
To take writing essays one step at a time!!! use the color codes and your essays will make so mch more sense!
Help me to write papers in future courses.

I really enjoyed this class!
Please continue the amazing teaching skills! I have been taking online classes for the past four semesters and by far your online class has been my favorite! You are beyond organized and I really appreciate the videos with voice overs and power points you provided. I am a visual learner but I also like when someone explains step by step. The video's and color- coding guidelines you made really helped me better understand how to write a SUTW paragraph and essay=) Thank-you for an amazing English 100 learning experience! Happy Holiday's!

6. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I had no dislikes about Mr. Lynch-Urbaniak's class.
No dislikes
nothing
What I liked least about my online course experience is that sometimes the site would be very slow.
N/A
The only thing that I kind of didn't like were the deadlines that work needed to be turned in by. It wasn't that bad but I would of liked it more if I didn't have to turn in work every couple days or every week. I had a math class last semester that was kind of like this but there was no recurring due dates, all of the work was open and every assignment was just due by the last day of instruction. Other than that it was pretty good.
I did not find anything wrong with the course.
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Mr. James Lynch-Urbaniak by far has been a great teacher. I understood the assignments very well. He explained what he wanted and needed to see in our homework when turned in. I would definitely recommend Mr. Lynch-Urbaniak.
I liked the professors feedback the most about this course. I also liked the style of writing taught through this course.
i learned a new easy way to make an essay. best way i've been ever taught. i love step up to writing format!
What I liked most about my online experience is that professor James posted all deadlines in the beginning of the semester so that it was easier to plan accordingly.
James make me re-appreciate English. Having English online rather than in class was waaaaaay easier.
I liked how structured this online course was. I also liked how our grade was automatically updated each time we submitted an assignment.
I liked that I didn't have to commute to school and that I could pretty much do the work on my own time.
I liked that even though it was an online class, I felt like it was taken in class because of how attentive and quick he was with responding, and giving us feedback.

9. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
The way Mr. Lynch-Urbaniak taught. The way he taught was very well understood.
The SUTW format
the step up to writing format. it was easy and straight forward.
the topics that we wrote our essays on because they were current events or topics that I was interested about.
Step Up to Writing process. So simple and useful for all essays!
SUTW Format
When I finally passed English 100...hopefully.
The great experience I had when taking it.
10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
How to write and do better research while crediting the right sources.
I learned how to write essays more effectively
how to write essays.
The things that I got from this course that will benefit my personality would be how supportive and helpful professor James was. It made me feel good about myself because I knew that he was there to give me excellent advice that I needed.
Confidence in my writing
I think my writing has improved at least a little bit.
I am a stronger writer because of all the essays we did. I know how to construct an essay and how to make it better.

Awesome way of teaching. English 100. Love the SUTW process.
Professor James is the best. He gets back to you as soon as possible. Once I emailed him, I got a response the same day. He gave specific instructions on how to improve my essay.
I really enjoyed my experience with the class, and would definitely recommend everyone to him.

6. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I really enjoyed this online course I have nothing bad to say about it.
Only meeting 3 times a semester
Nothing. The class was excellent!
Traffic to Waianae LCC Campus
It caused me to procrastinate at times.
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I loved that I was able to do my assignments when it was convenient for me. I loved the 11:55 deadline!! I thought that everything was well planned and thought out and I plan to use the knowledge I learned especially the Step Up to Writing format in many future classes.
the assignments were available from the start and no drastic changes were ever made
What I liked most was being able to take college courses online and not have to commute to school weekly. I enjoyed having the hybrid opportunity with the course.
Great balance to in-classes meetings to online participation through Laulima.
I liked how it wasn't too overwhelming. We had just enough work with enough of a challenge. The professor is very consistent and helpful.
James made english fun. Learning couldn't be any easier with him. Very clear and understandable. Work is very organized and prepared with excellence. Best teaching style ever!

The Step Up to Writing Paragraph to Essays. I've always had a hard time doing research papers until I took this specific English 100 class. I've taken eng 100 2 times before this semester and it finally clicked!!
How easy the hybrid class was to follow and how I enjoyed it
I will remember this course as being my first efficient hybrid class.
I definitely have a much more greater idea about how to develop and achieve a good paper.
How helpful the professor was.
The easiness, effectiveness, and color-coding sequence
10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
I think I will definitely benefit personally from this semester by finally passing Eng. 100 it's not that the content is difficult to do for myself, but just going to class and turning in assignments on time. I feel like I will definitely take more online classes in the future for similar courses:)
learning self discipline and no excuses. you either do it or you don't.
I learned how to minimize the wordiness in my papers, especially my thesis.
Using the info in other courses i have in the future because in almost every class effective writing is required in courses needing to graduate.
It gave me an excellent format for writing essays.
Never understood how to put together a paragraph or essay but after taking this course, I am confident with my writing

Having to email the teacher if there was any questions that needed to be answered only because you'd have to wait for a response when you so want the response right then and there.
Nothing could have lessen this course from its projective goal. He was right on target.
I rather have a face to face class.
I disliked that we were informed that an assignment was due the day of, it would have been much better if we were informed a couple days in advance.
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I loved having the flexibility of doing work when it fit into my schedule.
It shows the modules on how to write the paper and what was expected.
He was very systematic with his assignments and took the time to dialogue with you concerning your strengths and weakness. He is very articulate in helping you develop the basic understanding and assets of this writing intensive course. I learned a lot. In more areas than 1 I had to relearn new things. I am very great full for his expertise in this field. Mahalo.
It was easy, not ridiculously easy though, it was challenging but perfectly timed.
I liked most that their were no surprises, all work was listed and the due dates were shown.

The teacher and how he gives a lot of helpful feed backs. Also, some suggestions that he has for the paper your writing.
The SUTW method. I use it daily. I think it is ingenious.
The varying array of essay topics.
I will remember the SUTW program, it is a very useful writing tool.
10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
Learning correct structure of paragraphs and essays.
Just learning how to write in a step up to writing way. I could use this in the future if I ever have to write this way again.
Effective use of citations and EBSCOHOST.
I learned how to turn a paragraph to a essay. But I've learned to do the opposite by shortening my story, the point comes across faster.
This course benefited my writing ability.

He's a very good teacher. He wants to help his students, he gives constructive criticism but is also merciful about it. He does not shivering your wrongs in your face as if u know what u did. But rather show nicely and explain what is needed.
Thanks for everything!

There was feedback on all assignments, and Professor Urbaniak gave suggestions on how to improve scores and writing.
James is very understanding of a fast paced course environment and is very straightforward in his teaching style.
everything was great..
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It was simple, quick, and the professor was great. I was able to earn credits while having a summer too.
Our professor did his best to make this experience as personable as possible. I rather appreciated his positive attitude. Seemingly, the intent to ease students through introductions was relieving.
The professor was great at explaining assignments, grade and return assignments promptly. He was all around magnificent!
I feel like I learned how to write arguments better, which I will need in my future as a student of nursing at some point.
It was very fast paced and did not require much more than completion of assignments and understanding of materials.

Urbaniak was really, really good about getting back to students when they had questions and explaining exactly what he wanted from his students. His online videos were short, to the point and very useful. I enjoyed this class and would recommend him as a Professor.

None, everything was perfect.

7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
My learning disabilities have kept me from going forward with my education in the past. Professor Urbaniak has a method of teaching that I could understand. He has amazing talent as a teacher and LCC is very fortunate to have him as a teacher. I thank the school for this teacher.
I really liked the structural set up of the assignments. we started off slow, with single paragraphs and gradually increased our writing and research into full essays.
I really liked how he gave us reminders for assignments and how all assignments were posted at the beginning of the course. It gave us the opportunity to work ahead.
The way the professor is so encouraging. He explains everything that he wants in the paper. He is very thorough. I always had quick responses when I emailed him. Even when I had something wrong with my paper, he helped me to fix it without seeming annoyed. I could tell he really wants his students to do well. I liked how he kept to his deadlines for assignments.
That assignments were due on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week for the course.
Prof. Urbaniak was really straight forward and understanding. He reminded us about important due dates and gave feedback on our writings. It was just really easy to follow online.

My professor's unique form of teaching using a color coding system which makes learning essay structure much easier for me.
the stop light example of preparing a paragraph green, yellow and red.

Nothing
I didn't have a bad experience with this particular online course. It was very well done and it greatly helped me in writing.
That I do not get to interact with people in a classroom setting. However, online learning is the only option for my schedule and I am thankful that it exists.

7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
The best thing that I like about this online course was the forums ( class discussions) I like that the fact that the class would still have group discussions online.
Nothing
I enjoyed the entire course with Professor James. I felt that his way of teaching and setting up the assignment leading up to our final topic drafts helped me to become a stronger writer. Professor James is down to earth and approachable which made it easier for me to ask him questions through out the semester. He made taking English for the second time a much more enjoyable experience and I actually learned and will walk away with better writing skills.
Professor was very clear in his online modules. He provided visual aides, audio, and other documents to help us understand the concepts of English 100. He articulated very well and broke everything down in to manageable, bite sized pieces. This is my second time taking English 100 and this time around I feel much more confident (and less confused) because of his method of teaching.
Professor Urbaniak is an excellent teacher. He was responsive, attentive and helpful with any questions that I had throughout the semester. He gave me a new perspective on how to write and write well.
Very good course. The teacher helped students understand the topic by using great visual aid and short lectures. Teacher always provided great feedback and made the course very easy to understand and follow.
James is a very good teacher. Everything is explained in an easy to understand fashion. The feedback for each assignment has been extremely helpful too. I love that I can work school around my schedule for my job !!
I like that I've gained more experience about my English courses.
Responds to emails quickly. Very educational. Helps out as much as he can. Fairly grades homework. Teaching style suited my needs the best. Great professor!
I would have to say the interaction was what I enjoyed most about this class.
All assignments were available from the beginning, and we had a chance to work ahead.

I will always remember the step up to writing paragraphs, that has help me get started on essays.
Probably not
Definitely the Step-Up-to-Writing paragraph and making sure that when I write something it is complete and concise as it should be.
Remembering the ways the Professor broke down writing an essay. It makes it much less intimidating to write a paper which is so important for many other classes after English 100.
I will remember this course most by the new and improved technique that I learned in writing. I was able to improve my writing skills and in the process I began to write with ease and without stress.
Great teacher and easy to follow learning material.
The fact that I will be a published author and this was my first writing class :)

10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
How to write essays properly.
Structure
The hybrid portion was a big advantage for me. Although we didn't have any classes on campus, we had lecture videos that were created by Professor James. Each video showed step by step instructions and it just as if you were in class with him. He also attached a PDF copy of what he was teaching and made sure to include a sample paper from each module. Writing a paper actually makes sense to me now and after seven semesters in school, I'm enjoying writing papers for my classes.
I feel more confident in writing a basic essay.
The step by step process of writing that we were taught in this class will benefit me throughout the rest of my college career and hopefully throughout the future I have planned for after college.
Tips in writing that will help in the future in work and in future writing courses.
I learned how to do argumentative style writing and I learned what a thesis is.
Learning how to cite properly and make a great essay with ease.
Some of the things that I've learned from this class was how simple writing can be. The techniques used to teach enabled me to hone in on a skill that has always been there.

I really enjoyed this class. I have taken English 100 at the campus and I didn't really learn anything but this online course I really enjoyed and learned things.
Excellent class and I hope that I will have the chance to take more classes from James Urbaniak!
Great class. At first I was intimidated by writing essays. The professor basically walked students through essays and helped students gain confidence. Definitely would recommend teacher to other students.
Online forums allow you to be bolder than in a classroom setting if you are shy, which I am not. Another point is that there is no bias or prejudice online as we all have no idea what each other looks like, ages, race, etc. I think that is a tool that helps people feel free to communicate more freely. No real fear of judgment!
Great professor
this is a great class. I enjoyed it very much.
Great class, and instructor.

Taking Urbaniak was no regre at all. I recommend his ENG 100 class to students that are willing to learn. Urbaniak made writing essays eeasy and it couldn't have got any better than that.
Cutting it close to course deadlines
None.
This is a good course, especially since this was my first hybrid course. I thought it would have been hard, but James did a really good job on teaching us how to work with this course step-by-step.
Nothing, I enjoyed it.
Absolutely nothing. It was awesome.
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I enjoyed having to do my homework in the comfort of my home. ENG can be a little hard for some so i loved doing it in a relaxing setting like home. This hybred course was awesome in many ways. I really enjoyed the interaction we did have during our monthly meetings. James is an awesome teacher and i enjoyed learning from him.
I like that it gives the the freedom to do my assignments on my own time and at my own paste.
SUTW method
work at your own pace
Positively accelerating.
It's really convenient, I can do my work at home but still being able to have the chance to meet with my instructor. It wasn't tedious or confusing. James is the kind of instructor that gets right to the point, which I believe is great! This is because he doesn't waste our time with useless information, and all the things we are supped to learn is easily attained in our heads- so no overloading information. I also liked the fact that there was no "final exams"- it was just final essays, which were okay because James took us step-by-step on what to do. Other than that, this course was awesome!
I liked how we were able to first grasp and understand certain concepts of the assignments given then practiced them by applying them in weekly assignments.
The ability to think and write without the confinement of a classroom.

Mr. Urbaniak methodology of teaching English. SUTW.
10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
My writing skills are sharper and im able to identify words that fit in sentences.
This course taught me how to get me motivated and make sure that I turn my assignments in on time.
Ability to break down my paragraphs and putting it into an essay. Look for reference to back up your writing (citing)
Everything
Prepare me for the next English course that is required to accomplish an AA in Liberal Arts.
I hate writing essays, because I suck at writing. But this course help me write 5-paragraph essays with no hassle. Now, since finals are coming up, I have to write up to 10 pages of essays for one of my courses. But I'm not worried because I know how to write them without writing non-sense just to make my essay longer.

This was my first time taking a online course for English, It was challenging to learn away from a classroom environment.
7. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It was so convenient, the forums kept it feeling interactive.
I could log on to laulima at anytime and complete my work. Online helps a lot with my life situation, I can't afford to miss work much so i am able to do the assignments and lessons at my convenience!
I could work ahead if I wanted.
I really liked that Mr. Urbaniak replied to emails quickly and gave feed back. Even though the class was completely online it felt as though he was guiding me every step of the way.
professor urbaniak was very easy to "talk" to. he was helpful, understanding, and willing to accept late work if we emailed him.
Mr.Urbaniak was helpful and easy to contact if someone needed help. He made things easy to understand.
He was very helpful and graded assignments quickly to give feedback for future assignments.
Very fun, assignments are explained real well, great teaching,
The professor was very helpful. He used these videos to help us gain a better understanding of how to properly write an essay. I have found that his process of writing an essay was easier to understand and very impressive. In the past I had a difficult time writing great papers. Now it is quite simple.
Mr. Urbaniak, gave good lectures especially with the video modules. He also gave me good feedback on my rough drafts before I turned in my final draft.

Ten years from now ill remember this course mostly by the outlined we used to write our paragraphs and essays.
sutw format. green, yellow, red.
the way this class was taught. we learned SUTW and the color coding really helps write essays.
How nice the teacher was and how I was excited to complete and turn in the work.
How it taught me a great way of writing.
I will remember this course because of the easy format. I will most likely use his STEP UP TO WRITING FORMAT to write my papers in the future.
The positive feedback from Mr.Urbaniak, he really gave me motivation on my papers.
10. What things did you get from this course that will benefit you personally?
The format of how to complete essays. It broke down the material so simply, I am no longer afraid of essays.
It will help me for future classes, when I have to write papers. This class has helped me so much with writing, because i am so much more organized, i know how to stay on track and get to the point. Writing essays used to be stressful because I didn't have a mapped out structure of what an essay should look like, with this class I learned that and it has made writing essays a breeze.
I now know that i have to work extra hard for online courses. cause i really sucked this semester. and the one before. i'm dying in this class.
time management. still working on it, but i won't be making the same mistake next semester.
I believe I am able to communicate better from being in this class.
I learned how to keep organized and make sure I improved my work with the feedback I received.
Writing papers, quicker, faster, and better.
I honestly felt very nervous taking this class, especially online. But now I have an overall confidence in my writing. I actually feel quite satisfied with this class, I honestly feel like I will be using the information provided in this course through out my life.

I liked that assignments were very detailed and the resources were all there for us to use. I also like the hybrid course over all it's great for students who have full time jobs. The instructor was awesome and I would recommend him to others.
Mr. Urbaniak made the course seem attainable and achievable for everyone!
That James was patient and understanding and walked with me through out the whole coarse explaining how to be effective.
It was challenging and fun but at the same time easy. I liked being able to choose what time I worked and for how long I had to work. I also liked that we also had face to face time with our instructor. We learned what we needed to do and how to do it and what to do if we had anymore questions throughout the work.
Mr. U's knowledge and understanding he shared with us, Writing in Color.
I liked everything about the course, how everything was set up, the instructor and just the good vibes from the class.
The way he broke the lessons down it was easy to understand
I truly enjoyed the flexibility of taking an online course, and really enjoyed it even more because it was an hybrid. I found attending classes once a month was an additional plus because i got to meet my fellow classmates and communicate with my professor online and in person when needed. Awesome
Everything
I really liked the step up to writing program. It was really easy to understand.
The flexibility to work on my own time and yet still meet occasionally with the class for discussion and instruction from the Teacher.

Great course overall and a great instructor is seriously the cherry on top. I enjoyed this semester and James has an amazing attitude with his teaching, there's never a dull moment. I love that he doesn't make students spend $100 plus on as text book that will barely be used. I wish other instructors were as informative and brilliant as him. Amazingly good course!
I will recommend this class to anyone who is interested. This class has helped my level of thinking, my level of placing words in order and a full experience in loving my English language and writing. I will be able to use this theory for the rest of my life and will teach it to others as well. I am very blessed on this day and feel empowered to live life to the fullest. Mahalo Ke Akua.
Keep up the AWESOME work mr. U
Great experience as a first timer for a hybrid class.
thanks james! you were awesome and made this class a very great experience!
I really enjoyed this class. I'm just unhappy with the way I finished. Had it not been for my personal issues I would've still had my A. All in all this class was very interesting and I found the material to be helpful.
I personally really like working online and plan to do as many of my college courses as online classes as possible. I run my own business and need the flexibility and lack of travel that an online class affords me. Definitely enjoyed the course.

8. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing, I enjoyed taking this online course
I was forgetful with a few deadlines
Responses are sometimes delayed.
Professor James Urbaniak did an excellent job in teaching the class. The materials and readings that was given along with the assignments taught me how to write sentences, paragraphs, and essays that I will use throughout the course of college. Professor Urbaniak also followed up promptly with emails and correspondences since I live on another island this made a great difference in order for me to correct or prepare for assignments. He gave feedback that helped me to improve my writing. I would highly recommend this class to other students.
There was nothing I disliked.
The course was put together very well and is easy to follow. There are some obscure due dates but otherwise everything was great.
N/A
I didn't entirely enjoy the topics of the course papers, but that's just a matter of personal preference.
9. What did you like most about your online course experience?
What I liked the most about this online course was that I could really relate to the material. Good topics that fit in this present day.
Working on my assignments whenever I pleased
Works around my time.
The course material and especially the modules which I use for other classes in order to format my writing for assignments. Professor James Urbaniak responded promptly to all of my correspondences and gave feedback that made me learn the material taught in the assignments.
I enjoyed the ability to go on ahead and do assignments that were not yet due. I also appreciated the quickness in responses that I got from Professor Urbaniak when I emailed him about questions that I had and things that I wanted clarification on. The modules for each week were clear and concise, there were no real important questions that arose as far as how to do the assignments, I just make things harder on myself than need be.
James made this course great and the material was excellent and most certainly aided me in my confidence in writing. This is from someone who dislikes writing very much but this course inspired me.
I really felt like I was in control of myself. I could work on assignments and finish them in a timely manner. I could move on instead of waiting for an entire classroom to finish.
The class is very well organized and I learn a vast amount of information!
I enjoyed that the instructor offered explanations and additional help to the students, and was very clear as to where we could find additional resources if needed.

6. What did you like least about your online course experience?
There were some weeks when the turnaround time on essays was pretty tight.
I liked how the class was very convenient for me to access on instead of having to go there physically. I liked how the lessons was easy to understand and it gave me a lot of examples of how to write an essay as well.

Sometimes laulima wouldn't work and I'd miss deadlines

The whole course's assignments were laid out in advance so that I could see what I had to do and when each item was due.
I like that this was a hybrid class. There is less pressure trying to get to a class with having classes also online. Assignments were available and ready at anytime. Responses were timely and schedule was flexible to when we could do the work. Awesome teacher.
Since I am a visual learner, I liked how everything was color coded and easy to understand.
Everything, and the fact that my intermediate teacher was my English 100 college teacher.
It was a nice balance between in-class and online classes
How quickly the assignments were graded and uploaded to our course gradebook, i also liked that we could see all our upcoming work and plan ahead to achieve the stated deadline.
It was really nice because i could do my work on my own time whenever i made time for it. I liked that it was half online and that we also met up with the teacher in person as well.
I like because I can study by myself.
James Urbaniak is an amazing professor. He managed to make the class feel personal, which I feel isn't common for online classes. He responded very quickly to all of my e-mails and always gives feedback.

The freedom to do the classes when I want, the flexible hours and the easiness of turning in assignments.

I like that it was easy to manage, the assignments were spaced out in due date times very well, everything was easy to understand, and he was very prompt on returning assignments and replying to emails.
That I was able to complete English 100 online.
I liked how Professor Urbaniak taught the course. His ways of teaching English 100 was very effective considering it's online.
We didn't need to buy any books or extra materials.

The color coding system which he introduced to us, the SUTW.

Learning to add quotes in my essays
Personally, throughout english I've dreaded writing any papers because I felt it wasn't in the correct structure or writing format. Professor Urbaniak made it simple and easy for me to understand how to write a structurely sound paper.

3. What did you like least about your online course experience?
Nothing
the zero tolerance for late work policy. I understand why it's in place, but I think what if there was an emergency... thankfully it never factored for me, but it just makes me wonder... this is just a hypothetical pondering, I have no complaints about this course.
Professor is a little misleading about due dates. For example, assignment is posted due Wednesday however he sends out announcements saying due by tonight (Monday).
I actually don't have much negative feedback for this class.
nothing
This class was very enjoyable. There was nothing I didn't like.
Everything was pretty good. The teacher answered any questions I had, and he brought us to a classroom to teach us the important concepts. Sometimes, I felt like I was being held back, but that was probably because I was misplaced in the course.
nothing
We only met face-to-face four times throughout the semester. I wish it would have been maybe a few times more.
i didnt like pasting my eassy on laulima it would unformat it causing my grade to lower
Using Laulime, the copy and paste method never worked for me.
he is a really good instructor, it would have been better if he had more than four classes a semester. at least two more classes would be nice
N/A

sometimes contacting the professor took awhile for reply via email. It would be nice to get a reply right away.
I loved everything about this class and Teacher.
Nothing
Sometimes I couldn't just sit here and focus on the assignment. It is sometimes easier for me to sit in a class and work with others to understand certain things. But in the end I completed what needed to be done.
For this particular class, I didn't have anything that I didn't like about it. My professor was most helpful, I learned so much.He really helped me to understand how to write a essay the proper way. Having been out of school for over 30 years. I wish all my online experiences were as good as this particular class was.
I disliked the fact that I couldn't get immediate help. I don't mind writing papers but I hate doing a paper based on research. Although it may be simple for others, I just couldn't do the research and citing in my paper. When I asked the teacher for help, I had to refer to the module. Although I viewed the module, I still have unanswered questions and have to wait for the teacher to get back to me. I understand that the teacher has many students and papers to grade, therefore, it takes a while before he can reply to me.
The fact that the only way to contact the instructor was through email and it was very inconvenient between the teacher and student(s).
N/A
I wish we could've had a little more class time to go over the essays given. Maybe a day or two more during the course.
I wish his hybrid English course could be during the day!

4. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I enjoyed Mr. Urbaniak's method of teaching. He was fair and thoughtful. I appreciate his quick responses.
I loved everything about this class. Mr. Urbaniak was excellent! He always responded to my emails and questions and was always helpful and friendly/nice, never made me feel stupid or like a nuisance. I love the flexibility and that everything was laid out very clearly with no surprises.
Flexible and organized. I liked that Professor Urbanik provided us with great materials for this course. His video tutorials and sideshows were on point.
Having a Hybrid class made things very convenient and easy. I enjoyed working at my own pace and the professor always had good feedback and responded to e- mails in a timely manner.
time to do the work
The ease of online availability.
I really liked that the teacher was very encouraging. He was positive and constructive.
That all the assignments and what was expected of us was well explained.
I liked that it was easy and understandable for me.
module helped alot
Saving of drive time.
it was really easy turn in assignments on time, and if i had more classes like this in pearl city it would be much more convenient.
It gave me the freedom to do my work, but with the responsibility to do my work on my own.
Professor James Urbaniak
Four class meetings makes it a flexible class and easy to work with other classes.
I liked how class was convient being online and having some face to face meetings.
This being a hybrid style class that met 4 times, I liked the convenience of being able to do work at my leisure meeting assignment deadlines and still having met with the professor a handful of times to touch bases.
I loved that it was a hybrid class. Meeting and hearing lectures helped my success in learning.
Learning an easier way to write essays. It will definitely come in handy when taking other classes.
Our professor made something like tutorial videos which helped me stay more focused.
Again for this class it was my best online experience ever.
I like how Mr. Urbaniak explains on how to write a good paper using the colors of the stop light. It makes total sense. It actually made it easier to write a paper. Anyone can pass his class as long as you do the work.
I didn't have to go to class everyday.
I enjoyed the topics that we had to write about. Also the course was not confusing.
I liked how everything was organized, there were examples available if you were stuck. Also all assignments were viewable a day or so after you turned it in so you can check your feedback and fix mistakes if needed.
Urbaniak is able to help students understand the material and help students for future courses that uses the material we learn in class.
I liked that I was able to do my work when I wanted to and I didn't have to go to class everyday.

The SUTW guidline to writing.
this was my first entrance back into "school" after about a 10 year hiatus, I was very nervous and worried about whether or not I could adapt, so I am so glad I took this class first, it was great! I was never overwhelmed or left hung out to dry, Mr. Urbaniak always helped and made things very easy and clear to understand and get and now I feel like, Ok I can do this, I can write college level papers. So I'm very glad I took this course with this teacher, I'll always remember it as my first and Positive stepping stone back into college.
Red yellow green!!!
How to properly integrate quotes into my paragraphs and turning one paragraph into an essay.
i honestly dont think ill remember it
The writing format
I will remember his writing system of coloring the different sentences in a paragraph, and that you only use one quote per paragraph. These were both new ideas to me, and they were quite interesting.
SUTW!!!
The way I was learned to write an essay in this class. The SUTW paragraph, rough draft, then final. It was really helpful!
how easy it was
the step up to writing method. It was exactly what I need some structure to my writing.
how i was able to learn so much about essay structure, and how professors grade papers.

The essay writing format. SUTW.

I will probably remember the method in which my professor used to teach us.
The color coding of writing.
The color coding.
The way ill write an essay that uses quotes. I also learned how to shorten my essays instead of blab on.
Color coding our papers, each color help me understand when and where things should go!

14. My overall evaluation of this instructor is....
Great teacher!
He is GREAT! I cannot say enough how grateful I am that I chose this as my first step back into college. I love how he set everything up with lots of visual aids and time to complete assignments, that everything was laid out and there were no hidden surprises and he always answered my emails and questions and was always kind and helpful. I loved this course and am so glad I took it with this teacher.
Very knowledgable and helpful!
He was a good professor. He had clear and through instructions, sent us reminder e-mails about assignments, gave good feedback, and replied to e- mails quickly.
good instructor
He is an excellent teacher.
Excellent!
dont fire him...he's cool
A+
he was great and i had no problems with him. i will definitely recommend this class to all my peers.
Great teacher, keeps you excited about writing by breaking it all down, making it super easy to understand.
Great class for someone with not a lot of time.
good...friendly
Great teacher, made the 4 classes go by very quickly. His approach to teaching this English 100 class was great. I felt very comfortable taking this class with the tools given to get assignments done. Great professor!!!!!
I give him a 100% because of the time he takes to help his students and how he tries really hard to bring a smile to everyone's face.
Good. He makes writing essays much easier.
he is a great professor. He should continue teaching the way he does.
Mr Urbaniak is a wonderful and knowledgeable teacher. He is very clear in expectations of his students and explains every assignment very clearly. He is always available for help and I really feel that his goal is to help all of his students to succeed in their ability to write a proper paper. I wish all teachers both online and in class had his approach to teaching.He provides all the content needed to complete each assignment and makes sure we understand what we are doing through visuals and examples.
Mr. Urbaniak is a great teacher. 99% of the time, he was there when I needed him and quick to respond. But, the one time I needed him and asked to meet up in person (because I need to shown how to do it in order to grasp it), he referred me to the module. Although I didn't get the help I needed at that time, I still say Mr. Urbaniak is a great teacher. He explains well and usually responds as soon as he can.
He was good and he made the course very enjoyable. What I liked most about Urbaniak was that he was very attentive towards his students, friendly, and there was never a dull moment(except when the librarian came in).
he is a great teacher, happy that i took my first online class from him. Im not scared to take online class anymore.
He's a super funny guy and gets straight to the point with essays without making it seem like a pain in the butt to do. Even though they still are.
Awesome instructor!!! He helps students understand the material.
He is a really good teacher. He teaches you in a way that you will be able to remember how to do the work.

8. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The lack of the ability to interact with the instructor dynamically so I could have asked more points or ask for clarification faster and easier than via email or forum.
Online classes limits the amount of questions one can ask as it feels wrong to bother an instructor with the simpler questions that one can freely ask in a classroom setting.
The lack of teacher student interaction. I can't go up to the professor after class or see him during office hours to go over my papers face-to-face
To short of a class wish I could have learned more from him.
I was able to submit my assignment using internet exploer browser.
Professor Jmaes Urbaniak has given us his wonderful lecture and presentation and valuable guidence via videos and messages. I have learned a lot. He is one of the best educationors.
This is not my first online class but it is the first where I can honestly say subject matter was easy to follow.
laulima goes down at around 3am and when I am at work sometimes i try to do my homework and post it its not available. some video materials wasnt available for smart phones.

The fact that Prof Urbaniak was well prepared and had pre-recorded lectures on some of the subjects with slides and a lecture. I referred to the lectures often and it really helped clarify the assignments. He also made good use of examples to illustrate what he was trying to teach, thus it really solidified what he was looking for and what it would take to successfully complete the assignment.
I am limited by a painful back condition. Not having to drive to class and sit down for long periods during the class was well; it was less painful ;>
The lectures were short concise and I could pause and rewind them
I enjoyed everything. He responded very quickly to my emails and gave great feedback on how to rewrite my essays. Taking this summer school class was worth every penny!
The slide shows.
the professor was very understanding! i was intimidated by an online course, but he made it very easy to learn with clear teaching techniques!
The flexibility.
instructor is awesome and the distance learning really applied with the course.

Good
this course was straightforward, and very well planned. Professor Urbaniak told me exactly what I needed to do and always was organized. He was also very diligent at getting back to my emails.
Great course I am glad I took it. He made writing essays for me easy and fun!
good
great!
It was a great class. I hope the rest I take with LCC are as enjoyable.
i give it a two thumbs up.
21. Other comments:
I had the fortune or misfortune of having a second online course with an instructor this session simultaneously. That course lacked any type of slides, lectures, examples, but he did include printable versions of his homework assignments. This lack of materials made it frustrating when questions in the homework was not in the text. I was forced to look it up on the internet, although he did respond promptly to forum and email questions. Basically the course was 99% self taught compared to a more led course like Prof Urbaniak. Thus I can say that within the LCC school system for online courses Prof Urbaniak's efforts put him far above the efforts of another (probably tenured) instructor who did not put in the same level of effort in introductory level course.
None
I would like for instructor to add the mark up of the graded paper in the feedback.

Having a lot of time to finish assignments kind of made me procrastinate and worry about a lot of the other things I have going on like work and family.
forgetting when a assignments are due and not knowing how to use Laulima. my english and history online class used Laulima different so at first it was confusing
not all the time i had access to the computer

What bothered me most about the course was the students lack of classroom ettiquete in discussion forums.

4. What did you like most about your online course experience?
Flexible time
Not having to go to class, I could do the work at home
i can complete the work ahead of time. it is more convenient for me to complete my work.
It helped improve my english writing skills with the new learning method
The best factors of the course were the teachers quick return of assignments with comments as well as the consistency of classroom reminders.
I liked that the teacher was very encouraging with the grading, which made me really confident in my writing. I also liked that he explained things in ways that I could really understand, he taught me many things that I will use in my future writing classes that I think will get me very far. Excellent teacher.
I really liked that there was only 4 in-class meetings because I work a lot and don't always have time to go to school every week.
the convenience & the professor. the professor was always able to answer my questions.
That I got a passing grade.
My professor is really helpful Information was brought out to my attention very clearly and interesting.
Even though we were an online class it was nice to meet every once in a while.
After an assignment was done he did feedback really quick.
Our instructior and how he ran the course. He would explain thing very basically and, in a way that everyone could understand. Then he grew on that subject. He always responded in a short amount of time and was very understanding from the students point of view on things. This is one of the best online classes I have taken yet, and not my first. Also he would correct our work and help us perfect it!
Online courses are usually my first choice due to its convenience. Instructor shows a lot of concern for his students. No complaints, he answers questions and returns assignments in a timely manner. He also gives good feedback on assignments.
Materials were graded and returned in a timely manner.
online lecture was clearly presented and easy to understand. homeworks were easy to follow and due dates were clearly stated.
I like how the professor gave really great constructive feedback to improve. He didn't plot many assignments at once, but built it up to be something that I could keep the knowledge that was taught.
I loved this course, the timeliness and helpfulness of the professor and the clear and concise assignments were great!

7. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
being able to write a paper easier. I really think the SUTW helped me do papers a lot better.
having more confidence to write a essay
By the Step up to writing paragraph
I'll probably remember the technique that the professor used to teach appropriate paragraphing: Stoplight (Red, Yellow, Green)
Teaching me how to effectively write papers in college :)
The enthusiastic instructor and a great experience in an online course. The online tools were really easy to use and the website was easy to navigate.
the feedback i got from my instructor which wil be used in my future
The tools that I learned.
Creating an essay using the color format.
The color coding.
How fast the feedback was returned.
How I was taught to write a structured paragraph or paper. Green. Yellow. Red. Yellow. Red. Yellow. Red...... GReen!
The manner in how to start writing a paper.
I'll remember this course because the instructor taught us how to write properly and at a college level. Instead of expecting students to know how to write he taught us how to.
The progression of this course was on point. I have taken other online classes from other institutions, and this was a great start to my learning at LCC.
The green, yellow, red approach to writing essays!

I cannot stress it enough, but the flexibility of the time you are able to finish work was great especially since I work full time also.
having the material I need on Laulima, I could always go back to Laulima if I needed to review something
it was easy to get ahold of the teacher anytime i needed help. he would respond by email really fast
evrything
I most liked that I could complete assignments ahead of schedule and turn it in to avoid late assignments.
I liked that all the assignment were already listed and we knew before hand what was due and he reminded us before it was due so that we didn't forget. I also liked that the professor was very interactive with the students.
I liked the set-up of the course materials. It was really organized and made it easy for me to learn.
That we had only 4 classes.
Everything from learning new materials to having answers to every question about things discussing in class.
It's very quick
Freedom of schedule, and being able to finish high school and still be getting a head start on my future. Also the routine that we followed.
I liked that I felt no pressure when asking questions to improve my work.
I liked the flexibility.
I liked how everything was explained on the syllabus from the beginning.
I loved this course, the timeliness and helpfulness of the professor and the clear and concise assignments were great!

Thanks James!
Great teacher! I loved the way he taught, I understood so many things that he said, and he taught it in a way that was really interesting and made me want to learn more. He gave me the skills to write more efficient papers in my college papers in the future.
I think James Urbaniak is an awesome instructor and he is very helpful. I also like the convenience of having only 4 class meetings and doing assignments online.

7. Ten years from now I'll probably remember this course most by ...
the SUTW technique that Mr. Urbaniak taught us.
the teacher and the lessons taught. Definitely one of my favorites Mr. Urbaniak was to the point, encouraging, and very helpful. As long as you follow directions and read the information provided, his class will teach you a lot!
Your techniques of doing it in color. What each color represent.
Knowing that taking an English 100 class online is not a really bad thing to do.
The SUTW structure. The structure was very helpful and gave me confidence in my papers.
how i was able to quickly understand and write better after entering this course. Also, by being in this course i am able to correctly write and cite an ESSAY.
How easy and flexible it was
Actually I probably won't remember any of my courses.
The professors format for writing, which was "Step Up To Writing."
How convenient everything is, from the online assignments (even though Laulima was a bit dodgy at times) and the clear topics to Urbaniak's thoroughness
Mr. U's techniques and his will to push his students to become better writers, as well as individuals. Also, Mr. U gave his students a tool to remember. For example, expressing our emotions, thoughts through writing is one way to vent and let off steam. Lastly, Mr. U always wanted his students to try their best, work hard and never give up because by applying yourself anything is possible.
the freedom given to do assignments and not having to meet in class every week.
a very hard class for me due to it being the first online course.
Having Mr. Urbaniak as a teacher(:
James has taught me the step up to writing which was pretty cool and it helps me to remember if I missed something because it's color coded.
I'll remember this course because it gave me the foundation for writing a paper.
The online discussions and the way of writing a paper in an easy way. :)
green,red,yellow green
How to color code my initial paragraph and build that to a larger essay.
I will remember the stup up to writing paragraphs and how it helps to write an essay.

13. Comment on the instructor's concern for the students.
He was extremely concerned and it showed in his remarks on our assignments.
Was very encouraging and helpful. I wish he taught other courses as well!
no comments
He is very concern of when are assignments are due. He always emails us to give us heads up of when each assignment or forum is due and time that it is due.
He gave us his number and allowed us to call with our concerns. He cared enough to help us even though he might have been busy.
James is always willing to meet with the individual students and give assistance with any questions or concerns a student may have have on a particular assignment.
He really cared and helped us as fast as he could! :) Loved this class!
He informs his students on the different ways of getting in touch with him if we have any questions or concerns. He allows us to email or call by cell phone which has proven to be very effective.
James is great, he really seems to care for our learning experience. And whenever I needed help, he responded quickly and with clarity.
Feedback from instructor was sometimes confusing but informative nontheless.
Mr. U always handed our work back in a timely manner, his a straight up guy, and firm when necessary. Overall, Mr. U did his job to the best of his ability in my opinion.
He was always available for face-to-face help if you were willing to make the time to see him. Even if you couldn't go in to see him, he was more than willing to answer any questions you sent to him through email. Every response was very timely as well.
He wants to help them improve in their writing
Great concern and always just an email away for help.
Always there if we need ?'s answered!
James always responded to questions fairly quickly and if unsure he was always available in class, and out of class.
James wants his students to succeed. As a student he made me feel more confident in my writing skills.
He is very concerned of his student's. He has helped me in the course by giving me a chance to turn in my work do to family situations. He is very understanding.
You gave very straight to the point advice and I really appreciate that because it was easier to understand!

18. What did you like most about your online course experience?
the convenience of being able to have personal time as well as a college education.
I do not think online courses are for everyone, however I do think I am one of the exceptions. Being allowed to learn from home was encouraging and for myself was very easy. I will definitely be completing more online courses!!!
I think James is a great teacher. He was always quick to respond back to me and help on anyway that he could. I appreciated that.
I really liked the due dates of the assignments because it wasn't due one after another. There was a good amount of time on when an assignment was due.
I wish there was English 200 online with Mr. Urbaniak. In all I really enjoyed my experience taking a course online. I do look for some online courses in other subjects. Another didn't need to meet often.
What I liked most was knowing that I had almost till midnight to turn my assignment in. When I needed help I could either call or email James and he would provide the help that I needed.
I enjoyed the concept of being able to do things at my own pace.
i liked the fact that i could send in my paper at any time of the day on the due date. i work during the day and cant always get to a computer so it was helpful to be able to still turn in my assignments on time even if it was ten o'clock at night i would still receive credit for the assignment.
Working at my own pace and not having wasted time (that I would've had if it wasn't online).
It has allowed me to prioritize accordingly in starting and finishing my assignments. I am able to do my work without the stress in a face to face class.
How everything was organized and neatly laid out on Laulima
The convenience of working from home
The flexibility of my schedule, which gave me more time to focus on other priorities.
It taught me about buckling down and getting work done and turned it. Taking this course helped me to realize that I needed to push myself to do work, rather than relying on someone else to push me.
Tha ability to have more time for things out of class.
that it was at my own pace but it is alot harder for me
We also met 4 times in class on top of the course being online which I thought was great!
I liked being able to do my work at any time and not have to worry if i'm in my pj's doing it because i'm doing it in the comfort of my own home. It was overall very convenient because all if iur course materials were there for us and we could work at our own pace.
The convenience of working from home.
What i liked most was that the course was really convenient and fun. It was time managing and comfortable.
The flexibility
The face to face class meeting. I feel that we should have at least two more for a total of 6.
I liked the fact that I didn't have to go into class every week and i could work at my own pace.
19. What did you like least about your online course experience?
n/a
Nothing
I placed into English 100 and initially I was excited to take the course. However, I felt as if I were in remedial english. I thought the class would allow for more creativity, but it was completely structured. We couldn't even choose our own topics. I thought placing in english 100 proved my capability as a student. I was disappointed to be doing paragraph structure & felt as if it should have been a brief refresher rather than the entire course. This caused me to loose interest. English is usually my best subject, but I slacked off because I didn't feel like I was doing college level work and didn't feel the need to push myself. I just wish it had been more challenging.
no comment.
There was nothing to like least about.
I wish there was more homework, so we could have a bit more practice.
it was also very difficult to send in assignments on time because i do not have an internet connection at home.
It was very flexible with my schedual
Responses to emails are slower.
Nothing, I liked the hybrid course very much
Laulima itself had a few bugs here and there
Felt alone at times
N/A
Although I learned that I needed to buckle down, I found that it was hard for me to keep up with my work. Either I just let myself forget or I just didn't turn stuff in because I was too lazy.
Less face-to-face experience with people.
it was hard for me to remember when things were due and i like more face to face interactions because i ask alot of questions.
N/A
n/a
n/a
Nothing.
Sometimes feeling unsure about my work.
I didn't like the research part of the course.As for someone with little experience with EBSCOhost the due date was to short.
I didn't like the fact that I didn't get to know my classmates.
20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
Great course! Great teacher! Highly recommended.
Very well put together. He cuts out the excess unnecessary extras and allows us to focus on what was really important and vital to learn.
Overall, I like James and I like the way he teaches. I just don't like the material in the course.
GREAT
I really enjoyed it. Especially with my busy schedule.
This is actually the best English class that I have taken online. Being that it is an online class it went pretty well and it was as difficult than I thought it would be.
Very good course. If I could take it again, I would.
i really liked this course.
It was the best and I would take another online class again!
Good.
It was my first hybrid course and I would like a lot of my future classes to be like this. It is a course with structure, yet it allows me to work at my own pace.
Great! And I highly recommend choosing Urbaniak to anyone taking English 100.
Great professor but you need to manage your time well
I would recommend this course to all future students that needs flexibility in their weekly schedule.
Amazing teacher! Work was never too hard and never too much to handle. I would definitely recommend this course to other students. In fact, I already have and my friend will be taking this class next semester!
I very much enjoyed this course.
great teacher but online courses are just not for me.
Very good experience...
EXCELLENT !!!!! I would recommend this class to everyone. IT's AWESOME!
The course was excellent and I would recommend it to many people.
Overall, I would say that this class is the best on-line course I ever had in the school. It is really fun and convenient. Mr. Urbaniak is a really awesome teacher. His teaching techniques are easy to learn, and his assignments are fun to accomplish. I would really recommend this course to any student.

My overall evaluation is this was the best course that I have taken. The outline was easy to follow. I especially like the color coding.

The thing I liked most about my online class was the fact that we didn't have to meet face to face all the time. With a busy schedule having to come to class all the time is somewhat of a hassle. However, being able to turn in work online and not have to come to class all the time gives a sense of a moment to take a break and not be in a busy schedule.
20. What did you like least about your online course experience?
The one thing I didn't like was that this class went really slow. Material was easy but took forever to go over. I wished we went over more material or wrote more essays.

4. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
I would say that the SUTW process and the class forums were most valuable because we had more than enough time to complete our assignments and the SUTW method made my essays much more easier to create.
SUTW is the most aspect that help me a lot to improve my writing skills. Its so amazing and easy how the teacher taught us to start our writing through this format and later turn into a whole paragraph.
The balance of the freedom we had being that the course was online, and the amount of face to face meetings we participated in. I think it's a perfect balance to make sure we're up to speed with the course, while excelling at our own pace online at the same time.
The aspects of this course was the STUW Paragraphs. They were very helpful.
Being able to discuss with other classmates on an assignment topic so that we get an idea of what to write about. Also, the SUTW paragraphs made it easier for me to use one paragraph and expand it into four paragraphs.
Mr.Urbaniak taught me alot in such a short period of time. I enjoyed the SUTW exercisises we did. That really helped with my writing skills.
the modules!!
the SUTW format and the fact that most college students are full time employees and ths class is basic,easy but you still come out with the knowledge. I really enjoyed this class
The step up to writting technique that I've learned from this course and how we use it in our writting assignments.
The most valuable thing i learned in this course was the color coding system to set up an essay. For me it was so easy to actually sit down and put my thoughts onto paper that translated into an essay format. I never thought i could ever understand that part about writing (putting my thoughts down into an essay format) because this will be my third time trying to pass english 100. Mr.Urbaniak gave me those tools and confidence of writing in a way that i could understand.
I like the whole hybrid online/in class thing-- it was great to have the be able to meet in person and also the flexibility of having most of the course online. Also, Mr. Urbaniak gave tools we need to make college level essays.
His style of making us do a forum, a SUTW paragraph, a rough draft, then a final draft. The process was very effective for me.
I really liked the usage of the Forum section of Laulima. It was a great way of keeping us focused on our assignment while helping us come up with ideas at the same time.
I think the constant contact and communication. The feedback from the teacher was very helpful as well.
it being an online class
James has a simple system to write a proper paragraph. He was always willing to answer questions and that really made a difference in my experience with this class.

18. What did you like most about your online course experience?
I enjoyed our class forums the most because I was able to hear everyone else's opinion on each subject we were assigned to. I gave me a better insight on what I was about to write.
The online course is a better way of learning than inside a classroom. More than that I think is because the way the teacher organize things online for students to have a easier way to learn. It saves my time to manage it for school, home, and work. The forum is a great source to the student to give us idea on the next easy that we are going to write. I like this class very well.
The sense of independence. Being able to work at our own pace is a positive. You don't have a teacher hounding you, but at the same time you know what is to be done. This course tests your responsibility, which is also a life virtue that must be taught. This course is also good for people who can't take criticism very well. When our essays are graded, instead of hearing them from their teacher, they could just read it online at their own leisure in their home.
What I like most is that the assignments were posted up so I knew when it was due which was very helpful.
I liked the dicussions forums and SUTW paragraphs.
My teacher was very responsive to my questions and answered them in a timely manner. He was well prepped/organized. I enjoyed this online course and will recommend to everyone that needs to take English 100 in the future.
great feedback
James' personality was very warm and friendly, because of that his approach to writing wasn't intimidating. As a student that's horrified when it comes to writing papers, I completed this class with a lot of confidence in my writing because james' approach and attitude was very sincere and positive.
I had time to work 40+ hours a week, spend time with my children and find out what English was about. i really like this class it was simple and it taught me almost everything i had to know, at least the basics. Im so pro
That I could do work ahead of time and turn it in before the due date.
I liked that i could contribute my full thoughts on the discussion table through the forum assignments and not have to hold back on any of my thoughts because i was too afraid to speak up in a regular class.
It was mixed online and in class. I liked being able to do both. Having online course, allowed me the flexibility I needed to take care of other things in my life: work and taking care of grandmother. It's a very valuable thing for people who aren't just full time students.
Flexibility
It gave me the freedom to do my work when I was available in my own time.
I liked the freedom and flexibility. It didn't interfere with my work schedule as well as with my personal life. I have also decided to take more classes online.
Class discussions
I had the freedom to complete the material at my own pace and when I did need help, James always responded promptly.
Being able to go to work and complete my assignments at my own pace.
Ability to do course work on my own time, the quick responses from other classmates as well as the instructor
19. What did you like least about your online course experience?
I liked my online course overall because it was convenient for my school schedule and my time management. There was really nothing to dislike.
none
There really isn't anything I would change, but if I had to choose something, it would be the amount of face to face meetings that there are. I think there should be more. I enjoyed them, and it gives the students an insight to some of the questions they may have. There are some things that are explained better in person.
N/A
What I liked least was that I could've done better if I stayed focused more.
Maybe one more face to face meeting with the class would have had me up tp power but it's not needed if I was more on it.
forums
mothing
Getting to know the other students better. I only know them by their names and not by their true character or self.
nothing, i liked everything about it.
Mmmm. I feel like Laulima had some kinks to work out: minor things. I couldn't ever utilize the save work option (perhaps it was my computer). The Laulima session seemed to expire too quickly if I was completing long projects or multiple projects (led to me re-doing work... along with bein g upset).
There wasn't always internet connection readily availabile whenever I needed it
I got behind, and lost track of some assignments.
Everything was great.
I think im more of an face to face learner but i liked the flexibility of the class
The fact that I was expected to respond to the posts of my classmates in a productive way. I understand the base for forum dicussions (constructive critisism and peer review), but I think my classmates are liberal morons and the political nature of some of our assignments made me hope none of them ever reproduce.

20. My overall evaluation of this course is...
My overall evaluation of this course is that it is a fun and enjoyable course if you're willing to learn. It is convenient and Mr. Urbaniak is a very helpful and understanding teacher.
This course is a good course for students. LCC should keep the teacher and the course.
An awesome choice that I made. After taking this course, it makes me hope that there are other online courses that I can take as well.
AWESOME, best English class ever. I learned a lot
A great online course with a great instructor.
Best class I've taken seriously. I don't enjoy English at all. I struggled in High school and my last English 100 class but Mr.Urbaniak has made it easier for me to comprehend/understand what is needed to complete an essay.
A
totally loved the class best experience ive had. more classes should be like this one simple, less stressful and you actually learned something by the end of the semester.
I really liked this course and how it works. I would want to see more online classes in more subjects, but at the same time I also like to be in a classroom setting conversing more with other students. My overall evaluation for this class was very interesting for me, I'd say I would recomend this class for students with a busy schedule and for the type of students who likes interacting with other classmates.
awesome, i should've taken online courses my first semester of college.
It was awesome! Really. The hybrid option is rad. Mr. Urbaniak is a great professor (and funny). I would recommend this instructor and class to everyone and especially to those who are working full time and who have lots of commitments outside of school.
I enjoyed James' way of teaching this online course. I like that he was on it with returning our work and with sending us reminder emails before each assignment was due (VERY HELPFUL).
10/10. Very enthusiastic about his class and definitely knows his coarse content.
I would have to say that I really enjoyed and liked this class. I got a lot out of it, and would highly reccomend this online course to others. A+
There should be more online courses
It was an excellent experience and I'm glad I had it. James is a wonderful instructor and he deserves a raise... maybe a blow job. What's this school's take on student/professor relationships? (I'm joking, but honestly, I give him and A+)
A+
The course as well as the instructor was very helpful

Mr. Urbaniak makes this online course suitable for us and he's a great help to all of us students. He never favortisms anyone and if you need him, he's just an email away! I would rate his class 10/10! I recommend his class to anyone.
