Student Evaluation of Classroom Course

Here's what students are saying...

This was my first online course and I must say, I thoroughly enjoyed it! MindTap was a lot of fun and very useful to this learning experience.
My instructor was always available to answer questions online and was very quick on grading assignments. He was very understanding if I needed help with the online process.
I was initially intimidated by this class when I looked at the textbook, but it was very straightforward and easy to understand. VERY SATISFIED !!!
Some of the online classes I've taken have been so stressful that I wanted to quit. This class gave me hope again. I learned a good amount, the assignments were clear and made sure I knew my information. I wasn't overwhelmed at any point. The teacher gave helpful criticism but wasn't too critical.
This class was a good online experience and it made the content easy to learn.
