Student Evaluation of Classroom Course

Here's what students are saying...

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 like that this course was an OER course, all materials provided online and no purchase of textbook needed.
I really enjoy taking online classes. Although they are a bit more difficult because sometimes you don't live in the same area as your professor, you are still able to message them and feel assured that they will message you back.
Keep up the great work. I'm excited (and finally motivated) to finish my degree. Thanks for helping my first online class be a success.
I really enjoyed the professor as well as the set up of the online course. As a high school student who is busy, this course was probably the best option for me, and it was very nice to have the option to do it online.
