Here's what students are saying...

The online course and Blackboard were easy to navigate. I enjoyed the course material and thought it was the perfect amount for this course.
This was my first online course and I was a bit nervous, but the Blackboard system is easy to understand and navigate.
The instructor gave very thorough feedback to my assignments. He made the online learning experience personal and it was the best online class I have had since starting in 2013.
I did not miss the face to face interaction of a classroom. Through the constant use of the Discussion Board, I was able to get the same interaction I would have gotten in a classroom environment, through a different medium.
I liked the simple and fast user interface on Blackboard. I also learned a lot from this course and it makes me feel confident it was well worth it.
