1 Make it real time. Have it during class time. Assignments outside of class on line are ok, but if you still have to come to class it defeats the purpose.
2 Have the bulletin board assessible from the side navigation menu.
3 I would like to see more courses 100% on-line.
4 Nothing
5 I would like access to all the courses that I have previously taken. After I complete a course I always enjoy reviewing the material after the semester. I would like to have the ability to go back to the course content and review all that (interactive modules and Internet links) I have learned during the semester.

4 MORE online courses! Especially for grad students!
5 More classes
6 Allow students to take exams and post online without having to come to campus.
9 Teachers need to make sure students know the procedure involved with this type of instruction. Also, the teachers need to be sure that the student knows what his/her student number is.
10 I think more classes should be offered on-line for graduate students.

9 The programs be checked regularly prior to each semster to ensure that everything offered through them is working and all links are valid.

11 Only a few minor things need to be changed such as the sending of grades and email.
12 SEE QUESTION 18
13 continue to stay the same
14 only for the network to be very reliable

16 The book should have a more reasonable price.
17 West Georgia should have more of them!! I would definetly take another online course. It is more convenient for some people.
18 i think everything is set up pretty well, maybe a lab assistant to help the two instructors. The lab assistant hsould be versed in everything the class is teaching, that way they can help and the instructors won't be spread so thin.
19 None
20 nothing
21 Drop it
22 Meet at least once a week
24 i suggest that the class meet sometime during the semester to see how things are going. if there were problems that people were not aware of that would be a good time to let the teacher know.
25 Don't make test and practice tests out to be so exact to the point thata mistake that's not a wrong answer is counted as a wrong answer.
26 Make the modules more clear to understand.
27 I really have no suggestions for meeting online
28 That they have more variety
29 I would prefer not to have any 100% online courses. Classes with an online portion are more preferable to me.
30 Make it easier to access the programs on our personal computers.
31 Make sure that the programs work and don't give me a hard time
32 I do not know what suggestions I would make because I did not design Webct, but those that did I think need to look at how they are running things. I have to admit that the teachers were great at responding if there was a problem.
33 I think everything is pretty much organized and there are no needed changes for the on-line courses.

53 I would say to post more notices when it's getting close to time for a test.
54 open labs longer durations

56 I think they are just fine the way they are. Maybe one thing is there could be more study material for the classes, but other than that it is fine.
57 more deadlines
58 More class assignments...perhaps a document handed in from each type of program that we utilized in the course.
59 Everything should be clear in the beginning of the semester, the professor should go through every last detail of how to locate the tests and quizzes, and any other problems that have occured not only with me but with other students who took this class.
60 Less complicated, easier to understand workbook questions
61 none

67 i think everything was setup just right. the only problem i had this semester was i had some problems logining into the server after the UWG Servers crashed.
68 the design is good, but keep the info updated
69 We shouldn't use the bulletin board for our personal things. It should be used for the instructor's notifying us about the class.
70 Just to make sure everything is working where it's suppose to be.
71 More teacher involvement in the beginning of the course, so students can understand how to use Webct
72 i think it is good all around
73 There should be face-to-face class meetings sometimes to make sure everyone is doing okay or at least to figure out problems that are going on with the system.
74 I think that it might be benificial to have one in class session per week
75 they are good for teaching responsibility, I think we need more of them in the college atmosphere.

77 I think that this course is great. I have no suggestions.
78 The suggestions that I would make would be to have a teacher on line at specific times of the day so that you can just click on the "teacher help" icon and the teacher respond to your question immediately.
79 That all the classes are like this
80 More like them in college.
81 it was a well program put together.
82 Give a little more advice or training before setting people free.
83 Not to have them. I do not think that they are good sources of learnign.

94 That the lab actually be open the time and day it says it will be open.
95 If the final wasn't graded so harshly, I would thoroughly enjoy this course. Make the final worth less.
96 just make sure the teachers keep their students up to date on things that are due and happening
97 Have a least one day out of the week when the class has to meet for discussion or any problems

153 stay on it, you can fall behind
154 Need more computer labs
155 I would want it to be more consistent during the time for finals. I got used to a certain method of doing my classwork and when finals cmae along, I wasn't able to check a campus computer when a portion of the final was offered only on one day.
156 NA
157 To be more accommodating with technical difficulties and not expect everyone to go into the class knowing how to do everything perfectly. The workbook was also WAY too expensive. Seventy dollars is absolutely ridiculous.

166 Have specific meeting dates througout the semester
167 some class time

2 I think the more you can do online, the better. Dr. Mims is a wonderfully talented teacher; I enthusiastically recommend her!

8 I never did grow to use or understand the chatroom because one group member I could talk to and another I could not so it was not helpful and just is not my thing anyway. I had never been in one before and do not care to go in one again.
9 I believe it should be apart of most courses. When you work full time jobs with other responsibilities it nice to know you have other options that can be used. It alleaviates a portion of the stress level and alot of the travel.
10 When everything was up and running it was great.

3 Meet once a month, if only for 30 minutes and discuss what is going on in the assignments and what we can do to improve our scores on quizzes and worksheets.
4 There needs to be more detailed information available to students. We need to be able to e-mail our teachers, and they respond quickly. I think it is a good idea, and I will take another online class, but I didn't find this one to be all that great. The professors need to keep everything up to date!!!

5 I believe that there should be some kind of e-mail reminder system so that deadlines are remembered amongst the other classes that are being taken. It is hard to get on the internet and check this class everyday, so some of the assignments are missed or late.

1 Include live chat for discussion if possible.
2 Some of the equiopment at my site would not work. Maybe this could be handled before class starts. We had to do some of our projects somewhere else.
3 More face - to - face instruction. Make work done on - line work that is driven by the NEED for technology (i.e. this work or information cannot be read, integrated, etc. in any other way other than by on-line activities), instead of the need for all of us to "be involved in technology" driving the work. I realize that this type of course is probably taught to save other students driving time, but I found this course to be more time-consuming than face to face instruction because of the constant need for most work to be done in a manner that all could access it--namely on-line work.

2 My better experiences have been with the classes that do a mix of ol/f2f. This approach gives yo the best of both worlds. Still instructors should be aware of technical problems and give some slack for late assignments.
3 give all an aspect of on-line
4 Evaluation done sooner
5 More on line real time (chat) interaction of students
6 Dr. McKenzie's format was the easiest and most organized I have ever taken.
7 Have more chat room opportunities.
8 I liked the class sessions on Epic Learning. Those sessions were great and the ability to listen and correspond with the instructor wass great.
9 On line courses are a great way for many students to attend class who might not otherwise have the opportunity. These classes should not be overloaded with outside work in order to justify being on-line.

2 I think the way Dr. McKenzie set up her classes was the best format. They should all follow her setup.

7 Technical? Content? Access? What kind of suggestions? Maybe I can give the DE office some meaningful suggestions about a year from now, once I get myself up-to-speed in technology. Until then, just keep that Helpline open.

10 EnVision Coordination is a must.
