Response 28 I have a disability which limits my energy, and which can be exacerbated by over exertion - and it doesn't take much to over exert - so distance courses have been an invaluable help to me; without them I may not have managed to come this far. (I will receive my AA at the end of next semester; thank goodness!) The best courses are the ones with heavy emphasis on interaction between fellow students, and the instructor; this has been just such a class. I very much appreciate the forums and discussion groups/workshops.

Response 100 Flexibility.
Response 101 The fact that personally interacting with other students wasn't mandatory but could be done for extra points. I take online classes because at times I cannot be at a regular class. So making appointments to meet up with other students to work on projects doesn't exactly work for me. I do appreciate the opportunity to do so though. I think that interacting with fellow students on the forums allowed us to share and discuss issues. At the same time we could do so on our time, making it extremely convenient.

Response 109 The flexibility of being able to study and learn anytime and anywhere you are connected to the internet. The fact that you don't have to drive to campus for every class, taking time in traffic and costing gas.
Response 110 I like the flexible schedules and how I am able to submit assignments online.
Response 111 I felt the instructor was very organized with her curriculum. She is very through and explains in detail. I really enjoyed this course.
Response 112 it is so much more convenient for students that work and that dont recieve financial aid.

I liked the availability of online classes as they do not interfere with other available classes at leeward.
Response 113
Response 114
Response 115 I didn't have to go to school to learn for the first time, but rather, on the internet.
Response 116 I like being able to do my work at my pace at the time I decide to. Campus schedules are very difficult to maintain as a mother of 3, one of whom is disabled and needs constant care.

Response 118 The links that were only used were provided, there were no additional links that served no purpose & the ease of navigation, straight forward links.
Response 119 Without on line courses I would not have even been able to begin to reach my educational goals. Online courses are an intraquet part of scholastic attainment.

Response 143

Response 148 I learned a series of steps that have helped me to form a much better paper
Response 149 I like most about my distance education experiences that I am able to work on assignments, take quizzes/tests, and retrieve and review resources on my own time and out of class. Furthermore, I am able to communicate with instructor quickly and received a quick responds, as well as, to meet deadlines of assignments and quizzes/tests in a timely manner. Distance education had been extremely accommodating and very supportive for me on my schedule time. Thank you.

Response 162
Response 163 I liked how Professor Losch used outside material that was appropriate for the class. This is the most learning I have done in any Hawaiian Studies class. I also leaned basic Hawaiian language! She also presented informative and easy to read power point presentations. I enjoyed this class very much!

Response 170 The thing I liked the most was that I could do assignments and work when it I was most convenient for me.
Response 171 I love everything it offers. So many good elements and reasons why I do.

Response 173 Ms Hurley from Eng 209 was such an effective writer that I could almost hear her voice as I was reading her words. I loved her input and interaction with the class. It was fun to learn. The DE experience allowed me to access class times on my schedule rather than a set class time.
