Response 3 I liked the organization of the course. It give me time to reread if i didn't understand and the time frame for work due was fair. The courses I took made it easy because the schedule written was followed through by the instructors.

Response 23 I took HIST151, CRN 56425 and this was the worst online class I have ever taken. This teacher should not be teaching, he has mandatory chat-rooms for which he does not show up and fail to give notice of his absence. He either takes a long time to reply back in email or does not reply at all. This is the last week of the semester and I do not know my course grade yet. He does not update the grade book. He does not seem to care about the students and changes dates for assignments without giving us notice. I think that this survey should be geared towards specific classes and not a general idea or feeling towards all classes taken as some take more than one class.

Response 38 My 284 class was well laid out and easy to follow. Instructor Christina Keaulana did an excellent job of trying to implement best practices for the teaching profession even in her own lessons and assessments. The 285 and 295 classes need work and significant improvement on layout and content.

Response 43 This was an excellence course and I would recommend it to other students.
Response 44 I am taking another online course, but only because I have to. This semester I was dissapointed with my first online class and I found it difficult to navigate and my teacher didn't help at all. She had instructions for certain things but expected us to know how to figure out the rest. I was really confused when she had half the class online in myitlab and the other half in laulima, and when she told us we could redo our grader projects I asked several times what the deadline was and she kept telling me it's whatever the website said? I can't understand this kind of instruction especially seeing as it's meant to be her job to show me. If a person has difficulty and explains this is their first online class and you don't steer them in the right direction or explain clearly what and where they need to look you are not doing your job. Not only could I not redo my assignments I emailed her several times throughout the semester to express my frustration. I wrote her a great evaluation and at the end of the semester she blew me off again when I asked about deadlines. I don't think she even knew the exact dates for the deadlines which was why she kept saying it's whatever the website says. I'm hoping my next class which will be more difficult will be a better experience for me. I am a high achieving student and this class will affect my gpa and scholarship opportunities. I think this was a reflection of poor teaching style rather than the courses and distance learning offered by leeward.
Response 45
Response 46 History 244 was one of the best distance education classes I have taken. Professor Knuuti had good materials that were well organized. The class and content exceeded my expectations. He was accessible and responsive.
Response 47
Response 48 The online famr course was the only bad course so far. It should be taken into consideration that people take online courses because they have a lot on their plate and can't show up for in person classes so they should have alternatives for assignments that require you to go out to places for your assignment.

Response 51 No comments at this time. You have the best DE services at LCC.
Response 52 My teacher was MIA for about 3 weeks and told me they would get back to me and didn't. I pretty sure I'm failing and all my other 4 classes I got As I'm a hard working student.

Response 56 I feel I was not accommodated. I have a disability, and the ki office made me feel so bad about myself that I could not do work. Plus I asked for help but due to my schedule, it was difficult. There should be accommodations for online as well as in class instruction.

Response 60 I find taking DE courses very effective and it definitely helps with my busy schedule. I would prefer online and recommend it to everyone I know.
Response 61 Allows for convenience and flexibility. distance course teachers are usually very helpful and understanding, more so being that the class is online. i would take another class, given that it is not a hard subject, like accounting or math for example, just for personal reasons of liking those type of classes in person.

Response 99 This campus offered good DE courses. This campus offered fantastic tutoring services and help.I wish there was more student teacher interaction and that is offered at other UH campuses. This campus offered the least amount of scheduled weekly chat or discussion times compared to the 3 other campuses I have taken DE courses from in the UH system.for the DE classes. The ADA counselor was very nice but I never saw my accommodation sheet, never approved of what was sent because I never saw it, never knew what exactly the teachers received and I did ask for a copy.

Response 106 The teachers I had did an excellent job in working with the tools they are given. In my opinion, because each instructor does not use the same program as a means for teaching students, it makes learning extremely difficult. It seems like Laulima is just the meeting place, which doesn't make much sense. A lot of the other programs/sites teachers require us to use utilize the exact same features as Laulima which makes it redundant. I really feel like if all teachers were required to use one medium for the course schedule and deadlines, for example, that one simple change would help students a whole lot. Otherwise, Laulima is just outdated and pointless.

Response 110 Good class and very clear instructions to succeed the course.
Response 111 I would but I will now be doing thorough research on the course first and how it is instructed before making the commitment. I feel it is important that the required materials or areas of study be what tests are on. I have rarely found this to be true.

Response 132
Response 133 There needs to be more Core DE courses offered. Such as Math 100...only 1 online course provided! Which is disappointing since that is the last course I need to finish my Associates.

Response 148 I really liked having videos and a pdf with each assignment. I liked that I could rewatch the videos as much as I needed. The pdfs were essential because sometimes I couldn't see what the teacher had done. A few times a pdf wasn't available for an assignment and something could take me hours to figure out and that was a problem for me. Another suggestion, some extra credit opportunites were only on Leewards campus and I could not do them as I was here in Maui. That felt unfair. A possible way to balance that is, in this case two talks, is they could have been filmed and then I could have participated. Overall, I learned much more in this class with Erika Molyneux than in other classes on Maui. I felt her program was professional and pretty tight. It was a well organized.

Response 186 Forums should always be a thing. And lists. Some students really need a detailed, easy-to-read list of everything that's due, and when. And not always in a calendar format. And I mean everything. Not just tests, quizzes, and assignments, but also exercises and forums. And it would also help to have a list each week to know exactly how much is due, and how much time you should probably devote to things. Some students have jobs, multiple sometimes, in order to pay for college without relying on financial aid that they can't afford to repay later. Anything at all that can help with time management is there most welcome thing in the world. Thank you!

Response 208 I feel that something like medical terminology requires proctored exams on campus to ensure learning. Even one proctored final would have pushed me and challenged me to achieve more. Otherwise the course was good. It's ridiculous that we had to buy the new edition of the book even though medical terminology is based off of ancient Greek and Latin languages, the old version of the book was $10 and the new version was $120, even though it only covered very basic terms that have been established for decades at the newest.

Response 285 Our Instructor Luukia in HWST 107 was excellent. I live in Maui, bu tthe course was so interactive, meaningful,and well organized. She really is an excellent instructor. I have taken a lot of college courses in my life, and I would say this course was in the top 1-2 in content and an open forum. The only difficulty I had with the course was the cost of the book which was $80 and we didn't use it that much. But, that's true often that textbooks are expensive. Thank you for a really comprehensive, challenging, and high quality semester in Hawaiian Studies 107 to Kumu Luukia.

Response 389 The courses I took through Leeward CC was the best organized this semester. The teachers were responded and gave feedback in a timely matter. I would recommend LCC to others and look forward to taking more classes through LCC
Response 390 Roy Kamida is the instructor that taught the online course I took from Leeward. The structure of his online class is excellent. All topics and chapters had lecture videos that he lectured himself and it was very informative. That was the strength of this class is that we read the book but he too lectured which helps you understand topics easier because he gives you examples instead of just making you read the book and understand it yourself. The assignments and weekly quizzes helped you practice and learn the accounting steps which helped with the tests. I really enjoyed this class because it was clear cut and he was always available for questions.
Response 391
Response 392 I love online classes. I hope all classes are online so I can work while studying. Thank you for offering them.
Response 393 Absolutely. I am currently scheduled to take ACCOUNTING 202 in the Spring of 2016. I took Accounting 201 at UHWO in the Fall of 2015 but the professor is currently on maternity leave and I didn't want to wait 9 months to take 202. We'll see how it goes, but I am looking forward to it.

Response 530 This particular class had way too many time-consuming requirements. The syllabus needs to be more organized and there were too many links and/or class resource locations which created confusion for students. Overall a good course, but I believe the instructor was trying too hard and attempting to include too many things in one course. Having taken literally hundreds of credit hours from several different colleges and universities, I believe the course load far exceeded the credit hours for the class.

Response 559 I loved it because I am 44 years old just returning to college. It allows me to take care of my family and all my other obligations that I have to take care of on a daily basis. I am taking most of my classes as a DE this spring semester. I wish all of the DE courses allowed me to do everything at home due to the fact I have a child that has many medical problems. The one I took this semester allowed me to do everything from home and I noticed for some of the ones I am taking this spring they still require me to go on to campus to take tests etc. I hope that the school may offer more classes that I can do 100% at home. My instructor was amazing and very helpful. Well prepared and explained everything step by step along with many examples. That made it easy to understand and know what was expected of me.

Response 596 If I could take all DE classes, I would!
Response 597 I had an overall very good experience withe online courses. The books used were very detail and easy to ready and work with. Mr Kamida was very helpful I'm taking another acc course with him this semester. i did not have the same experience with acc 132, all my questions were answered in a very basic way, no much detail or information and even with a " google it". Thank you

Response 625 Every professor has their own way of using the tools. It takes awhile to get familiarize and acclimated to each professor's style. I do recommend this type of learning. Sitting in an auditorium has been done since the Greeks. Surely we can upgrade the learning experience by now. Lets move forward!

Response 629 This is my second DE course and I think it worked for me. Other courses need both classroom and web learning such as ACC 201. Sometimes you learn better when the teacher is explaining the course in person. My Quickbook course is perfect for distance learning since it is a online program.
