Here's what students are saying...
This was the most engaging online course that I have ever taken, in regards to peer interaction. The discussion posts were fun and challenging, and I genuinely enjoyed interacting with my peers through them.
I took this course entirely online and found that the expectations and criteria for the coursework were very clearly laid out and easy to follow.
I liked that this course was self-paced, especially during the summer months, as I was able to complete coursework in advance of planned vacations. I do appreciate that the instructor still gave a schedule/timeline for coursework.
The syllabus was clear about information needed in order to do well in this class. Instructor gave very clear instructions for all assignments and discussion boards. I appreciated that the source materials needed for the class are available online. I didn't have to worry about ordering a book and whether it would be delivered in time for my class, or the expense of buying a book.
I liked that the course work was manageable, taking it online was easier than expected.
