Here's what students are saying...
Overall the class was great and I look forward to taking more online courses.
I really liked the fact that this class had on OER for the textbook. I think that is a great tool for college students since the books can be expensive. I also really appreciated my instructor, she was engaging and provided great feedback when necessary.
It was easy to follow along and access all of the required materials and reading. I liked using OERs and not having to buy a textbook.
The lessons are pretty interesting and I liked the assignments. Even if it was an online class, everybody had the chance to participate in the discussion board.
I liked that this class was offered online at my own pace with guidelines/due dates.
