Response 2
Response 3 Course material was easy to locate within the site, and instructions wrere clear. The professor was incredibly communicative, which always helps alleviate the sometimes awkwardness of an online environment.

Response 6
Response 7 convenient
Response 8
Response 9
Response 10 the convenience of going through the sessions and quizes when I have the time
Response 11 I like that it is on your own time and you move at your own pace. Plus it leaves more time for other things.
Response 12 There was a lot of support among the students in this class - very thankful for that!
Response 13 n/a
Response 14 Well-organized, course ran very smoothy and assignments presented in a timely manner.
Response 15 I love distance education. I find that I do better in this enviroment, if a class is available online and in class, I would take the online. I feel that without distance education I would not have been able to return to school and finish my degree. There should be more classes available at all levels.
Response 16 I liked that the teacher responded quickly to my e-mails and helped me when I didn't understand the material presented.
Response 17
Response 18

Response 20 Convenient
Response 21 Do it on my own time.
Response 22 it's convenient and i can work on my own time
Response 23 All the information for the course were there. Assignments, quizzes and notes.
Response 24 I could do it at my own time. Didn't feel pressured or rushed.
Response 25 The flexibility of time allowed. The class I took was well suited to the distance educ. format.
Response 26 Distance learning is terrific. I took ICS111 last semester and loved it. It is convenient. Lectures portions can be replayed over and over if its a difficult point, especially when its downloadable also in mp4 format. I feel all classes should have Distance Learning formats which would open up learning to a vastly greater population. I work full time and cannot make it to campus classes. Distance Learning provides the flexibility. Contact with the instructor online has been great and I stopped in to see them when I could. You must put all courses in a cirriculum in the Distance Learning program. I am finding that pre-requisite courses I need for computer programming are not being offered via Distance Learning. I believe that Distance Learning is an educational revolution. It makes education open to everyone without geographic limitation. The format for Leeward CC's ISC111 was the with also mp4 downloads. Please keep up the good work, expand the program as rapidly as possible and put more financial resources into building the program. Mahalo.

Response 35 On the other hand, of the three distance courses I have taken, instructors Ms. Porter and Mr. Teraoka were the most outstanding. Everything is stated from the beginning, there are active discussions in which they provide input (especially Ms. Porter), you know exactly what you will be graded on, when assignments, quizzes, and tests will be due, and so forth. I can go on and on. I look to take more distance education courses in the future and hope my learning experience will be at least equal to what these two instructors have and continue to do. I can also learn at my convenience. Being a working adult that frequently travels, sometimes I just dont have time to go to night classes every week. I might do 2 or 3 quizzes at one time vice one at a time due to working commitments. Its the convenience of doing the courses that I really enjoy.
Response 36 It was very convenient and I liked the formatting of the classes. I like the fact that you can sometimes do things ahead of time where as on campus classes often do assignments on a specific schedule, no earlier or no later. For some reason in online courses I am most likely to interact with more classmates than in an on campus setting, it was much easier to interact with others, which is what I enjoyed.
Response 37
Response 38
Response 39 The previlage of not having to quit my job in order to take courses. The convenience of being "in" the classroom any time of the day or night. And mostly for this opportunity of finally completing my last class towards my Liberal Arts Degree. YIPEE! Excellent class and courses offered by LCC. Great teachers. Mahalo!
Response 40 1) Learning about my classmates and who they are 2) The instructor's compassion for the subject and always finding ways to add some extra points to ones scores. 3) The variety of assignments/quizzes/problems that makes the course fun to learn. Sometimes it became a challenge for him since I have a minor comprehensive problem, but I am glad when I pass a course and try to apply the education to practical life experience. Thanks to Mr. Kamida for all he does. I have enjoyed his classes along with the other accounting faculty and appreciate the guidance they offer.
Response 41
Response 42 I'm a stay at home mother, raising a 11 month & 6 yr old. Having access to the internet instead of going to campus helped me tremendously!!!!!

Response 187 Throughout my college path since Spring 2005, I've been solely a DE student and enjoyed learning from distance education.

I am transferring to UHWO for the FAl08 semester and I am not able to get into the DE Track applied Science Bachelors degree since it is only offered to the neighbor islands, but I hope they will review my files and see that I am more than capable of withstanding the distance education level of learning, and give me a chance a shooting for my education. Thank you again for offering these DE classes, its definitely an awesome way for me to better my future. By the way, I like this survey better than the last few semesters =). This one seems to be most simple.

Response 284
Response 285 For my LAW class, I enjoyed the fact that it was well spread out. The weekly quizzes were fairly distributed and achievable. I liked the fact that the instructor seemed to care about his students and it shows that he wanted them to pass. For my Accounting class, I liked the fact that we could only be able to move on with the quizzes if we passed that weeks quiz with a certain score. It ensures that you have that much more of a chance to get a passing grade.
Response 286 Can do the class whenever free time is available.
Response 287
Response 288 I loved how independently I got to learn. I loved being able to access my class at any time. The teacher was very helpful and quick to communicate with. His instructions were clear, and his assignments were helpful in putting our new knowledge to use in everyday scenarios. Though this course was taken online, I feel that I learned a lot more than I would have been able to if I went to a real classroom. Being able to study at my own time made the material interesting and approachable. Also, since the exams were open book, I feel that I got more out of the material since I had to review the book more than once. This online class is great! I plan to take more of these in the next coming semesters at LCC! :D
Response 289 It saved me time by not going to class on campus, and because all resources and quizzes were available from the beginning of semester, I could focus on them without losing my interest. Sometimes it is effective to learn intensively, as long as a student is interested in.
Response 290 It gave me the opportunity to go to school and work full time.
Response 291
Response 292 all
Response 293 That the class was very straight forward and that I was able to take it from home.
Response 294 Teachers were involved, and helped when I had any questions.
Response 295 I loved that I could do all of the assignments on my own time, since the only reason I take an online class is because I don't always have the time to meet with a regular class. I could complete all of my assignments whenever I had the time, even if it was at 3 in the morning or 11 at night.
Response 296 able to complete work on my time and/or ahead of schedule so I can travel. I like when assignment dropboxes are available from the beggining of the semester.
Response 297 Convenience, I can learn when I want to learn at whatever time I decide is best for my scheduele.
Response 298 I like that this distance education class gave you enough time to do the assignment when it is convenient for you, but not so flexable that you may fall behind. This course was designed in a way that helped me succeed independently.
Response 299 I liked how the exams were structured.
Response 300 In one of my distant education class, I loved that, that particular instructor was always available to us. She was very kind and warm with her words and made it easy for us to use our resources. If there was complications, she was understanding and continued to help us use our tools. I loved that class, it went smoothly. No problems!
Response 301 I did not have to go to class and sit down and listen to the instructor but was able to participate online.
Response 302 i didn't have to drive to school to go to class. and i chose when i was gonna read in the time of the day.
Response 303 the teacher would give us a heads up when our next exam or quiz was going to be, by podsting a calender a head of time. thisd teacher is very awesome and i would recemend her to other students.

Response 313 Not much.
Response 314 Not a lot. It was hard to keep up with all the work.
Response 315 I love on-line classes! It gives you the much needed time for other things. Also, you get to work around your schedule as to when to take an exam! Plus, the fact that you can communicate with anybody when discussing homework problems.
Response 316 It gave me the flexibility to go through my assignents when I had the time.
Response 317 Again, being able to not be in a classroom and being to go your own speed is nice.
Response 318 Little or no commute.
Response 319 The ability to work on my assignments and advance at my convenience.
Response 320
Response 321
Response 322
Response 323 Overall I am very happy with the DE program. It allows me to finish my school even with a pre-schooler in the house.

Response 332 I had a great teacher
Response 333
Response 334 I like that i could do it on my own time and the exams are within certain dates and not like its only at one exact time.
Response 335
Response 336 Very organized in presentation of materials, structure, communication, etc allowing me to plan accordingly. The instructor was very responsive. Although the first distance ed course by LCC, it is the 3rd I have taken from within the UH System (one from KCC and one from UHM). By far, this course was the best because of the different techniques, modalities, and the instructors well designed course. I would recommend it to everyone.

Response 340 I had lots of flexibility to do things when I wanted and I could stay home and watch my son while going to school.
Response 341 There really wasn't anything I didn't like about my first distance education experience. It seemed like all students who attended this class were very net savvy and were willing to meet up physically if any student needed any assistance. Finally I enjoyed having quick responses from our professor even during times out of school. If there was an issue that I encountered at midnight or early in the morning, I received an e-mail from him immediately on the next day. Very interactive and the discussion board was very helpful early on.

Response 379 In contrast to that awful professor, my sociology class is wonderful. Ms. Hodges actually makes use of the calendar feature (which more professors should take the time to fill out, as to better clarify their expectations and deadlines) and she was readily available and quickly responded to emails and discussion posts.
Response 380 I got to learn on my own time and it gave me time to study on days that I didn't have to work and if I was away from work. I like DE courses because it saves me a lot of time to drive to school and I am focused well enough as if I were in class.

But being able to work on classes on my own time (sometime between 8:30p and 6am) I am able to attend full-time. I AM VERY VERY VERY VERY HAPPY WITH INTERNET CLASSES!

Response 471 I have had all but wonderful experience with Online courses, but this one by far was very difficult for me, I found that there was not much thought put into a students success, and sadly this will end my distance education.

Response 527 The discipline it makes me have to push myself to do the work. I think it's so cool to work with a Professor, and other students, and in a way we're all anonymous (ageless and faceless).

Response 572
Response 573 The thing I liked the most about this experience is that I didn't have to go to an on campus site to take my exams. The two courses I took had online exams. A close second is that I felt I got to know my instructors even though I never met them in person. Awesome!

Response 598
Response 599 I didnt have to wake up early, or have to be at class at a specific time which allowed for me to have a "freed up" schedule.
Response 600 The best part was that it was convenient. I have a family to raise and it was always hard for me to return to college. Having distance learning is very helpful to students who don't have much time to be away from home to attend classes. Thank you for this option!!
Response 601 it fitted around my busy work and home schedule and since i am well disciplined it worked well
Response 602 I was able to get constructive criticism from other students. In a regular class I'm not sure if students are able to critique another's work.

Response 614
Response 615 I can decide when and where to put my times into studies within the week. Choices to participate.
Response 616 There are alot of things that I liked about the long distance program. I work a full-time job and I am on call at another place, so for me it was the only way to go to school. I really enjoyed it. I was nerveous at first because I have not been in school in a long time and I have never taken an on-line course before. Now I feel that it will be possible to get my BS, eventually. I hope that LCC adds more courses on-line. It's great!!!
Response 617 easy for me to do work on my own time
Response 618 The chance to access material when it was most convenient.
Response 619 it wasn't hard to follow directions, being that I an not confident on the computer
Response 620 deadlines are clearly stated.
Response 621 I thought it would have been easy, well i think it would have if the intruction was easy to follow. The course seems interesting but putting this class online was a bit confusing. I would take it again but not through Leeward.
Response 622
Response 623 schedule!
Response 624
Response 625 The part I liked most about my distance education experience is that I don't have to carry so many papers in my folder since I can get handouts on the Internet.
