Response 2 Busn166 Ocarlay- was terrible. I have taken many DE courses and this was a joke. The comments on this survey are towards this course and not my MKT120 Spencer course which was strong.

Response 17 Thanks for providing me such an invaluable opportunity! I would be unable to take the college courses I am looking to take if not for the Leeward CC DE courses. The only thing I would suggest for improvement is to incorporate more video lectures and/or video tutorials. I am MOST GRATEFUL and keep up the great work!

Response 26 The quality of online classes vary. A few professors are good at leading an online class and make much use of different learning tools and methods. Unfortunately, professors like this are few and far between. It's much more common for professors to tell us to read the text, and take a quiz, with little-to-no other interaction or learning methods/assessments. I feel like some professors treat online classes as an afterthought, investing less time in them than in their face-to-face classes. In my opinion, a good online class should not lose anything from being a distance learning experience.
Response 27 I absolutely love taking online classes. In fact, I wish I could take all of my classes online.

Response 36 The teacher was great and worked with me even though I was injured and had to make-up assignments. A couple of times Laulima site was having tech issues and it messed me up during a test and doing late night assignments.
Response 37 Yes! I totally enjoyed it, it fit in my schedule, I have already signed up for 3 more online classes for next semester. Thank you for the opportunity :)
Response 38
Response 39 I prefer the face to face interaction with students and teacher. The teacher was very helpful in getting me through my first DE course.
Response 40 I would prefer not to take an on line but the classes that I am required to take are only available on line. After taking this class, I find it easier to learn and communicate with an instructor when you actually sit in a class

Response 48 The quality of the ED course(s) really depends on the professor teaching the class.
Response 49 Instructor was excellent. Always on top of things. Grades were posted on time and he answered questions in a timely manner.
Response 50 As a distance learner it is very important to have an alternate technology plan. In addition, a distance student can fall back, because technological options like an extra computer or the ability to connect to the Internet may cause catastrophic consequences to a distance learner. So it is very important to remind a student or even make it a course requirement and priority that a distance learner is prepared to complete all course work without scrambling for a technological service that should already have been in place if the need arises to utilize the options a alternate technological plan is suppose to provide. Anyway, I appreciate your time and consideration in this matter of importance! Mahalo Nui Loa! kurt7@hawaii.edu

Response 58 This was my first DE class and I was a bit worried at first because I did not know what to expect. I found the course to be very easy to understand and challenging. I learned a great deal and will be taking advantage of DDE courses in the future.
Response 59
Response 60 The group collaboration opportunities and Edublogs postings were instrumental to my learning.
Response 61 I took 2 courses. One was great, but the other less so. There was almost no communication from the instructor after the course began, unless I asked a specific question. Those were answered promptly. In addition, no student interaction was encouraged.

Response 69 it wasnt the fact that we had a bad teacher or the distance education was bad, but instead it was the course itself. It was altered to fit students that just needed the class for an elective, which sucked for the people who have a passion for the degree that requires this course.

Response 99 This course, HWST 107, with Tracie Losch, was by far the best online course I have ever taken. It was organized and user-friendly. I learned a lot and what's more, I enjoyed the course. It was stress-free and wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone.

Response 105 The only thing about using the online programs is that some of the coursework has a restriction on when you can take the tests. It would be easier to remove that for those who work at a faster pace. This is even in on-campus classes that utilize online learning programs such as MyITLab.
Response 106
Response 107 I am only able to take DE courses due to work and family circumstances.
Response 108 Online classes should have their tests done online as well, I was taking this class due to lack of time and had a 2 day window to take a test that if missed would cause the class to be impossible to pass. If the test had been online this problen would have been avoided.

Response 115 Although I had not interacted with other students in the class, we did have the means to do so if we preferred. I only interacted with the professor once during the semester, only because all his instructions were CLEAR and CONCISE, and very well organized!!! Professor Joe is an excellent DE instructor. He laid out the semester with an extremely useful guide on how to apply our time. He also populated the calendar with important course deadlines and I found this invaluable!!! He made it so easy for me to concentrate on the course material versus trying to figure out how to navigate laulime!!! THANK YOU
Response 116
Response 117
Response 118 some DE professors are different from other professors. Its sad how grades should be graded and listed just as well as how they would like us to turn in our assignments when its due. It's difficult as times when DE is flexible but professors should follow their dates as well.

Response 134 I really like online classes because I work full time so it helps out alot, I wish there was more online classes because here are only a few I can take online and the rest I have to go on campus. But other then that my instructors are very nice, helpful, and are very understanding when I had questions about my assisgnments.
Response 135
Response 136 I love distance education courses because it is flexible to my schedule. I enjoy doing things at my own pace. I also like knowing what I need to do ahead of time. I find it more effective for me to gain credits towards a degree this way. Like some UH system students, I prefer distance education courses for Most Courses. Although, I don't think they would be effective for courses that need more instruction, such as Mathematics, Accounting, Physics, and so on. I wish there were more distance education courses or at least more hybrid courses that meet once a week.
Response 137

Response 172 I have taken many distance learning courses over the past few years at different CC's and the UH Manoa. Leeward is the best. Best prepared. Good presentations. MP4 podcasts are essentials. Professors all show caring for student learning. That is not always the case from other campuses. I really appreciate what you are doing and believe that you are on the cutting edge. Mahalo and good job!

Response 178
Response 179 There is a glitch in the system of Laulima that caused me to fail a course. When I have two windows open and submit two different assignments for the same class they both go toward the second window that I opened. When I submit the second assignment it erases the first one I would have already submitted and makes it seem like I never turned it in at all. This was while using Google Crome, and because I didn't catch it until so late in the year by using grade book, I became so exasperated that I just gave up after seeing that I would have to ace everything else just to barley get a D in the class. I also don't understand why there are deadlines for course work in distance education courses. The whole purpose of these classes is because a student needs the flexibility to do the course work whenever he/she wants. If I am busy with work, out of the country, or in the hospital for all but the last three weeks of the course I should still be able to turn in all my test and assignments for full credit. I really disliked my DE courses and never want to take them again, but will have to because I can't afford not to.

Response 199
Response 200 Laulima is valuable tool for DE students at LCC. The one thing that needs to be implemented throughout Laulima is a uniform presentation by every instructor. So all the tools available in Laulima should have the same content in them for every class. One class should not have assignments under modules and another have the syllabus under resources. Also instructors should be forced to use all the tools available regardless of whether or not they think they add value. In my experience most teacher dont like or use chat, mailtool, grade book, or assignments. Even though this information may be in the syllabus, redundancy helps the sttudent finding the information in more than one place. This has been my biggest complaint of Laulime.

Response 228 I didn't think more class interaction would be helpful for this class. It was not a subject that would have benefited from discussion. I thought most of the subject material was explained well on the website and from the instructors additional material. I don't think my school standing had any financial aid opportunity.
Response 229 The courses are good. Assignments should be clear and updated. Overall I learned quite a bit, but it was difficult finding the support to do well.
Response 230 I really like distance learning and am so thankful that it is available. I don't believe I would have been this successful in college without DE services. Mahalo LCC for making it possible for me to earn a degree.

Response 251 Professor Tracie for Hawaiian Study online course was easy to follow and access. I wish more professors were an organized as her and used modules to help with each tool. This has by far been the best online course I've takes so far.
Response 252 D.E. Course A: Course strengths: * Instructor provided constructive criticism and encouraging comments on a regular basis. * Assignment expectations were clear. * Course load was appropriate. Course weaknesses: * Assignments were not released until Sun. with most due on Thurs. leaving only 5 days to prepare and complete most assignments. For a student such as myself, with responsibilities to a family and career to contend with as well as my commitment to my education, this short amount of time presented a considerable challenge. D.E. Course B Course strengths: * Modules were colorful, interesting and insightful. * Projects and assignments were directly related to materials covered. * Assignments, modules (containing course materials)and project descriptions (as well as sample projects) were posted at the beginning of the semester, allowing students to read ahead with more time to prepare. * the project samples and grading rubrics provided for each project assigned was very helpful. Course weaknesses: * Communication with the instructor was difficult, with some e-mailed questions never answered. * assignments and projects were not graded and returned in a timely manner. * Instructor did not provide much feedback on projects and assignments handed in .

Response 270 The course I took with Prof. Pat Hurley (Ling 102) was an excellent example of what distance learning course should be. Well organized, easy to follow instructions, varied assessments, lots of resources, fair grading, corresponds professionally, gives positive feedback and responds quickly to e-mails. I hope other learning courses at LCC will learn from her online-course. Thank you!
Response 271 i prefer online courses to in class course. online courses make it that much more possible not to only better the life (ex. jobs, family, etc.) outside of school, but it also helps to acquire more classes/per semester, to fit the students needs and goals.
Response 272 Everything was really transparent and clear (expectations from me, learning and grading objectives, etc.) That made all the difference I think! (in a good way!) It was a good experience and I would definitely do again.

Response 275 I wish more courses would be offered online. Working full time during the day makesit ruff.

Response 421 This was a great experience. I had to use a lot of self discipline to get through the demands of online courses.
Response 422 I think that the courses need organization so that information is readily available. I think that the course syllabus should have the location to find information in Laulima included in the section description.
Response 423
Response 424 I really enjoyed taking this DE course at Leeward CC. In the future I plan on taking another.
Response 425 depends on the teacher, some at LCC, that I have taken internet courses from, have been EXCELLENT (Khan, Wong, Adler, Kosasa), Bus 121 was the WORST (of the 28 on line courses I have taken) Ever! Good teachers are actively involved but many in the C.C. on line system simply set up a course with automated exams, score assignments with no comment and literally create a course where they have to do nothing. that is sad because teachers who are actively involed can be excellent. Some teachers fail to realize that most on line students are taking those courses because they CAN'T show up on campus: clearly inappropriate to tell a student to come to their office for help!

Response 453 Since many of these courses require publisher interaction to do assignments, it's imperative that instructors review the tests, modules, lessons, quizzes for errors and not just rely on students to tell the instructor there are errors. So much time has been WASTED going over and over material and coming to find out that the publisher has the answers wrong. Since professors don't make up exams to much anymore and just rely on tests from publishers, and from assorted tests banks at that, please have them go over the material before hand.

Response 469
Response 470 UH Community Colleges could provide a far better education if it were to recruit professors from the work force. Employers today need workers with usable knowledge and skills. However, our community colleges employ career educators who lack work experience. How can a college prepare students for future work, when it's professors have no work experience? The results are clear: Students waste their money on college until they find a viable learning alternative. The alternative has arrived through private institutions offering online training and certification courses for skills that directly relate to workforce needs. The gap has been filled, and the public colleges are falling behind. Online classes have been great for Leeward community college, but the course material is yet irrelevant, and un-usable in the work world.

Response 504 This survey is way to long. I think maybe ten questions would be sufficent.The questions seemed to ask the same subject just in different wording.

Response 566 The way the AAT instructors sets up their online courses is the best online set up I've encountered at LCC. Others were not as easy for students with little or no computer knowledge, it took longer to find assignments or examples. To many tabs and unorganized not like the Education courses.

Response 579 Laulima, in particular, is difficult to navigate sometimes because there are so many options for instructor convenience. I think having too many conflicting resources is confusing for students because there is no uniform way to do things. For example, some instructors post grades in "Gradebook" while others only use "Assignments" and so on.

Response 602 Although instructors provide us with URLs for homework's directly from the UH Library Website, sometimes the article is not available for viewing. On my experience, it tells me that it;s not accessible. :( Instructors are great interacting with us students but it would be nice if they would send like a midterm grade evaluation to see where we're at in our class.

Response 619
Response 620
Response 621 As for interaction between students and teachers, I feel that the teachers need to make it a point to check their emails everyday because in one of my DE classes I had I would go a week or more without having my questions answered. As a student that is frustrating.

Response 635 I took Art 101 with Barabra Saromines-Gannes, the course outline was reading and exams with one final paper. I averaged a 85 on all of my exams except for one which my instructor admitted was having a computer glitches and I only scored a 22, she told me I would be able to retake this exam at the end of the semester. I emailed her multiple times and she would take a couple of days to respond which usually didn't bother me; but when I asked about retaking my exam she responded 2 days later and said I would have to take it by that day at 5pm. I didn't receive this email until the following day. My final grade somehow ended up being a D. I've been trying to reach her since to resolve this issue, with no luck of a reply. I'm very concerned because I received A's in all my other courses and I was attentive and responsible in this course, always meeting deadlines and tasks and don't feel I'm deserving of a D grade. Please help if possible.

Response 659 More distance courses should be offered to allow working adults the opportunity to gain higher education. I have been taking one class a semester on line for years, and have an AA and am now looking forward to going for my BA. If it wasn't for distance classes, this would never have been possible. Thank you! Knowledge is power!

Response 676 Mr. Tom Fachan was a good instructor, although the course is self-taught he always got back to me quickly whenever i had questions. The hardest problem i faced was getting my health professions profile set up. After that was squared away i had no problems.

Response 695 I don't think some of these questions apply to the course that I took, because it was a strictly online course, so there wasn't a need for interaction with my fellow students, like if it were a hybrid course. The instructor gave us the option to email him with any questions or concerns, but there wasn't really a need to interact with him or other students because this was an online course. It was run very efficiently and effectively.
Response 696 Instructors were either seemingly absent from course altogether or the course requirements and expectations were extremely unclear and unorganized.

Response 706 Aloha, Not clear at the onset was that in taking a course outside of my home institution, the student is subject to the rules and regulations of that institution. Makes sense; however, that was a surprise and then searching for Leeward perimeters and guidelines was difficult at best. Great instructor , Ms. Sanger who motivated me to submit excellent work.

Response 708 They should offer alot more online courses, due to people with work, kids etc. They would be able to take business away from the mainland online colleges and make money for Hawaii. I think less people would drop out of school. They should also offer an orientation automatically for people that sign-up for online courses for the first time.
