Here's what students are saying...
I liked that lots of different kinds of activities were completed to help learn the material.
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.
This class was AMAZING!! Being a full time online student, and a military wife during this time was super hard but making classes like this available online helped out SO much!!
I liked this class and the format it was in. I like having the online instruction and find it easy to fit into my busy lifestyle.
I was nervous taking this course online due to the pandemic, but as I am going into my last week I have to say, I would not have done it any other way. The material was detailed and the assignments definitely tested my understanding, but it was not overwhelming. The professor provided great feedback on any misunderstandings on my part, and on my assignments, to insure that I improved in each lesson.
