        Flexibility to work on my schedule and not have to drive for 3.5 hours to and from class.The instructor had everything available for access in a very timely manner so that there was no wait time for getting started on assignments and planning out the course.He was available via email, Instant Messenger, and phone.He responded to any questions very quickly so there was minimal time lost between question and answer.

        I liked everything about this course. All aspects were straightforward and easy to access.

        Sometimes we discussed topics in groups instead of with the entire class which made the discussion easier to manage.The group assignments were a good way to collaborate with classmates online.The discussions had due dates and the amount of points that it was worth.

        I like the fact that I can work and submit project late at night or in advance.

        I can work at my own pace.

        IT was easier to follow the information and complete assignments at my own pace.

        I liked the capability of completing class work on my own time, and that I could submit assignments at three in the morning if necessary (I did this several times).

        Major assignments were available to review from the beginning of the term. Knowing what is coming next was very helpful to understanding the initial assignments and also to planning workload.

        I am more creative in the middle of the night. I enjoy taking test at midnight, 1 or 2 am as opposed to 8am. The flexibility is great!

        With the rising gas prices, I doubt that I would have been able to take classes if it were not for the distance learning. I enjoyed the flexibility and freedom that distance learning offers. I have time to go back over material at my leisure. The instructor is the greatest.

        Being able to work at my own pace.

        Easy to use and convenience

        I had time to do the work instead of cramming it all in at once.

        I liked being able to post assignments to the bulletin board and to read other postings to fit my own schedule.

        I liked the flexibility to access, work on, and turn in my assignments at my own pace.

        It was interesting and the professor showed great effort in trying to make it a valuable experience. The ease of submission of work any time of the day from home is the best part.

        It was very organized.

        I didn't have to drive to Carrollton.

        Searching selection tools online at my convenience allowed for extended time to examine each tool more completely.

        Working online permits the student to examine resources without time constraints. I believe this improves student understanding and learning.

        Information can be sent online -- this saves time and money.

        The flexibility to work when I have time.

        You are able to do the work on your own time and at the comfort of your own home.

        It was convenient.I could access the information at my leisure.

        Nothing, the instructor was so unorganized.

        I liked being able to go at my own pace. I liked being able to get ahead in this course, because it helped me manager my other two classes better.

        Very convenient considering the price of gas and the distance that I drive.I also accomplished class work on my own time--quite often using my time to explore lessons further than I would be able to in class.

        There were no face-to-face meetings required.

        very organized professor

        Works with my schedule!

        Absolutely nothing, I will never take a class from this professor again and will drop out of the program is I have to.†† If he cant say one nice thing to me or my peers all semester, then I cant say anything nice now.He is critical and has unrealistic expectations of assignments.

        This course was awesome! All the assignments were ready from the beginning of the semester and it was laid out to be very student friendly.The instructor gave students plenty of time to work on projects because technology issues can and do arise!He was extremely positive, helpful, and respectful all semester.His grading system was fair.I found myself posting more often than required because I was interested in topics and NOT required to do stupid and outrageous tasks- he never wasted my time!I felt like I learned a lot from this class from him and my peers.

        The professor made the instructions and tutorials very user friendly. It made the online portion easier to understand, as well as being available for any questions or help.

        I like the blended approach to taking courses. I liked that the professor did not assign busy work or numerous amounts of assignments to make up for having an f2f class.Her efforts to make sure that our assignments were relevant to our Monday sessions in Newnan as well as to have time to preview for next weekís studies made my learning experience meaningful.

        I liked the discussion portion as students were able to confer with each other.

        Discussion board and collaborative assignments

        Convenience

        Materials were easy to access and the on-line organization of this particular class was especially organized.

        Flexibility

        Flexible scheduling

        It gives you the freedom to ask questions or make comments that you might be too shy to make in class. And it also lets you work at your own pace - and at 2 a.m. if you so desire.

        The interaction, the way our professor had everything laid out for us to know exactly what to do on a particular day or week. She was very organized and helped the class to be. It was a great asset and perfect for an online class.

        The instructor used online video assignments and websites that were very helpful. I also liked being able to take the test multiple times and submitting assignments online. Most important, it saved gas in commuting since I didn't have to drive to Carrollton from Rome.

        Being able to work on assignments and discussions at my own time whether afternoon or 3 am.

        I could complete the activities at my leisure.

        I didn't have to drive a long way to meet.

        Convenience

        The assignments were clear and I enjoyed the topic discussions amongst classmates. The class was quite enjoyable; I gained a wealth of knowledge. It also gave me an opportunity to read the whole textbook - something I might not have done if I was in the classroom.

        I like the flexibility to do the work when I like.

        That I could complete the requirements from a distance.

        I liked the online portion because there was no need to be required to do this at a specific time. It was explained VERY well and all the answers to my questions were found in my professorís explanation of the assignment so I had no problems what so ever.

        I loved the professor. I was totally unsure of myself and computers and she made the class both fun and easy. We did a lot of work but I never got too stressed out because I knew that she would explain it to us.

        I am able to complete my assignments when it is convenient for me and my family.

        Although I have always enjoyed classes at West Georgia, I absolutely HATED this one.The professor obviously had no clue about what 'online' meant.Assignments were rationed to us as if we were 5 years old, yet the turn around time and quality of work was expected to be commensurate with that of a doctoral candidate who had NOTHING but time for this class. If the instructor had been my first experience at West Georgia, I would have NEVER returned.

        Everything

        I was able to collaborate with my classmates online instead of having to physically meet somewhere.

        Could work at my own speed.

        It's convenient and easy to use.I live in Athens; this program is much more flexible than the program than the one at UGA.That is why I drive all the way to Carrollton to take my classes rather than the town in which I live!

        The flexibility it offers me to work from home.

        The online portion was designed to be relevant. There was no feeling of 'busy work'. All online assignments were directly related to the course content.

Everything that we need for the class and all assignments due are clearly shown on our class calendar, so I could work at my own pace.This class worked very well for me as I am a full time employee too.

        I really liked being able to work on my class work whenever I can.It was also easier to make comments (because no one knew me). The instructor had an area where we could make anonymous comments and this was helpful. It was also great to be able to get comments and ideas from my peers!! This was a great resource.Since there were over 100 students, I was able to have access to 100 great minds.

        It saved me gas and mileage on my car!It was convenient to do the work from my living room at my own pace and not be sitting in a classroom.Often class time is not utilized to the fullest extent.Online you get what you need and you set your own speed.

        I enjoyed learning at my own pace. I liked being able to go back and watch the notes/slides as many times as needed. I enjoyed having the lectures voiced over. I feel like I learned more by listening and reading than just looking at a slide. Plus it adds more personality to the lecture, having a feel like a class. I would love to take more classes like this. I would be easier for me.

        This course was fairly easy to take online.

        I was able to do the work on my own schedule, for the most part.

        Could do it on my time and not have to physically go to class.

        I liked the fact that my teacher was very involved with the class. If we had a problem or emailed her, she responded very quickly. Also if there were any changes in the calendar they were far enough ahead of time for us to adjust to those changes.

        having access to print off the directions and work on the assignments when I could (all hours)having a bulletin board to post Q &AHaving an instructor who was quick to answer email and/or bulletin questions and chat through difficulties with students as well as meet with them on campus and discuss things via phone!

        I really enjoyed being able to do assignments and tests online.It saved me a lot of driving time (app. 1 1/2 hrs every day) along with saving money on gas.It was so convenient being able to work on assignments around my family and work schedule.Of course there are deadlines for assignments, but you can plan ahead and make the time to complete assignments.The instructor responded to e-mails quickly.He also sent out e-mails almost daily to remind of us of assignments and his internet and office hours in case we had questions.I hope there will more classes offered at least partially online.It sure makes things easier, especially if you work, have a family, or even commute.

        Did not have to commute. This saved a lot of time and gas. Great online lectures, I felt I was right in the classroom. I could pause and rewind if something wasn't clear to me. I worked at my own pace and it was much less stressful.

        I could do the work when I had a chance and participate according to my schedule. It makes it easier to take classes over the summer online.
