21. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
Taking the online version of this class is a lot of physical work. I spent a good time of my week doing homework and gets a little repetitive but all the information is useful and applies to real world situations.
1. Medical language lab practice wasn't helpful.
I really liked this class
have the online course be more clear
none
He was very nice, helpful and accommodating.
I was from the online class and I think less work load would be a little helpful. It was hard to complete all the assignments required as well as assignments for other classes.
22. Assignments are returned promptly.

30. What did you like most about your online course experience?
It was nice to able to work from home and do things on my own time and not go into class
It was on my time.
The interaction that we got to have over the assignments
most assignments were clear
being able to grow in my education and being able to work at my own pace instead of going to class.
The online homework was interesting and graded quickly so I was able to tell right away how I was doing in the class.
The instructor, his knowledge of his field, and subtle sense of humor.
I would have rather taken an on campus unit, but it was full.
I liked that I didn't have to actually physically go to school.
31. What did you like least about your online course experience?
There was a lot of homework.
NONE
sometimes the medical language lab wouldn't allow me to sign in.
doing the project
Some parts of the medical language lab were difficult to navigate. If I wanted to double check a question I had answered, I had to click through all the previous questions in order to go back to it.
The group project was a bit difficult to organize among other on line class mates.
It was a lot of material and you have to be very self-motivated to keep up.
I thought the work load was very heavy considering all the work fom other classes that had to be completed as well.
32. The course site was organized well, and it was easy to understand what needed to be done each week.
