Question 15:What did you dislike about the online portion of this
Nothing in particular. I guess in one of my online courses
I would have liked more interaction with the teacher.
Too much busy written work
Everything was fine
Going to class. You are so used to doing your work and concentrating on
the subject that it becomes difficult to go back to a situation where you
have to deal with non
nothing really except sometimes the computer froze
Nothing really...everything was good.
I disliked the fact that I always waited to the last minute to complete
my quizes and exams.
I do not like having the final count so much.
Some of the material is becoming outdated and some of the web links are
not functioning as the sites referenced have either moved or ceased to
exist. It does not breed a feeling of importance in the coursework
for these items to not work correctly. I know the number of students
is incredibly large but to have a bulletin board area that the professors
never look at seems to be a little silly. Some global issues mught
have been able to be raised and answered as well as it being a method to
feel connected to the class as a whole. In the first lesson
there was a discussion question but never any follow
There is no proof that i did my work and some of it did not get recieved
so i will be receiving a zero for it
the fact that ihad to pay $60+ for a paper back home made book!!!
Not having proper resources sometimes at hand and not always having
a teacher to turn to if I had a problem.
some time i forgot when the test and quizes are due
sometimes the program doesn't work and it tells you to do stuff later that
Having to teach yourself.
The long modules.
The high percentage final for insgtance if you ace the final
and do nothing else you still have a "D". But If you have everything
due at every deadline you can barely make a "C".
It was harder to get help if I needed it. I also had trouble with the computers
at times which really bothered me.
The modules was a little time consuming.
1/2 hours to get to West Georgia from my house and I have a very
difficult time getting there. This saved me the travel time
but I still felt like I got a lot out of the course.
easy to procrastinate
I have learned that I am a student that needs the attetion of the proffesor.
The dealines for me were difficult to remember. I will not take online
classes again they were not for me.
Not always a professor there to help.
Dr. xxxx' refusal to answer questions on the message board was horrid.
People would ask questions that everyone had and to which we all wanted
answers but she would only reply with her email address and the same
monotonous instructions to contact her or Mr. xxx personally. It
was the most irritating behavior I have ever experienced in an online course.
She turned something that could have been helpful into an aggravating daily
nuisance. Mr. xxx however was great!
That my final is worth 600 points!
there was nothing i disliked
It's hard not to procrastinate.
I only knew a few students in my class that was taking this course and
it helps sometimes to have class mates to help me in doing some of the
exercises and understanding them.
if your comp. didn't work properly or if the professer didn't receive the
Sometimes having technical difficulties with my computer.
Because I was able to complete my assignments on my time it was sometimes
harder to keep on track.
i like it
Couldn't directly asks questions unless of course throught the BB
sitting at the computer so long trying to finish assignments
there was nothing that i did not like about the class
After following instructions during a exam the program sometimes
froze and the student felt in a dilema as to what do I do now since I only
have one opportunity to take an exam.
I believe that the final exam carries too much weight.
Procrasination is easier with the on
It was hard to not procrastinate
Dislike driving to campus to take exam.
3 times a week.
Internet clogging caused me to receive a bad grade..
i would rather go to a class every day and take notes. i am not very
good with computers and sometimes the computers would freeze during my
time on the computer making it frustrating to do my work.
The exams are to sensitive to the touch of the mouse.
The online and non class part.
if you needed help you had to wait nd go to campus during lab hours to
recieve the help you needed.
nothing comes to mind
I didn't study as much as I went through each section
nothing really just that the final is worth for more than half your grade.
Lack of contact with class and instructor.
you didnt know any one in the class
There is no way to get a reminder and sometimes it is easy to forget about
the class. Also it is very "picky" and the tests were a little retarded.
I have never taken an online class before this one so I am not sure what
to expect as for me everything was fine.
The problems that wee caused from computer malfunctions but there
were far and few and quickly fixed
It was too sensitive for example if you mistakenly pushed to wrong
botton it deducts too many points from the assignment.
The uncertainty of not knowing if the teacher received it.
Grading is too touchy. Points marked off for not hitting the "Save" button
on a test directly in the middle of the the "Save" button. Or not being
given instructions that I HAVE to hit "OK" but being marked off for hitting
enter on the keyboard instead.
Easy to procrastinate
Actually it was very easy and there wasn't much I did not like about
I constantly forget my due dates
The time limit to complete tests and quizzes.
Sometimes when I need help it takes me alot of time to figure out how to
that the final is worth 60% of the grade
no one to help m on sunday
2 a week instead of everyday with a campus class.
lack of time with the instructor
I could never get a response from the instructor.
How the instructions were not helpful in completing the modules.
The Professor's attitude and work assignments not stated clearly in the
workbook he manufactured.
the book instructions the instructor and how long it took him to
respond and the attitude I got back for asking a question
if i get behind it is hard to catch up.
the insecure feeling that you may be doing something wrong or not doing
something that you should be doing.
Very often I felt invisible. The instructor hardly ever answered
my private emails and rarely appeared on the bulletin board. The
teacher's assistants did help on the board but not nearly as much
as I felt they should. I often felt like no one would answer my questions.
I work full time and cannot easily get to the lab for assistance.
When I had a problem with an assignment I could not get in touch with the
At times it's hard to receive help. Plus there can be computer problems
occur. There have been times when I needed to log on at home and for what
ever reason I was unable to.
Too many assigments due time consuming!!
Not having the final online is inconvient.
the lack of instruction for students that learn on different levels than
others and the actual instructor was inpossible to get in touch with
and absolutely rude when asked for help.
All the work that was due every week.
the lack of professor help.
answers to questions were not given in a timely manner most of the time
The instructor took a while to respond to email and sometimes he
didn't at all. He seemed to have a bit of an attitude. The assistants in
the course participated more.
Lots of work
The proffesor wasn't helpful at all. Never returned my e
I feel like I didn't learn anything useful in that class
Instructors fail to answer questions.
Talking to Dr. xxxx.
The WebCT interface is so inefficent
The fact that we had to go in to a computer lab for the final. Before
I registered for the class it said it was 100% online but that
is a lie and my grade could suffer for it. I have learned the
material but not well enough to have to go in to take a closed book
final. That is the point of taking an online class to be able
to work online. Well going to a computer lab to take a final
doesnt sound online to me does it to you? If my grade suffers
because I cannot reference the book I will be very angry and
I do not think it is fair. If the class is not going to be 100% online
then it needs to specify that it will not be that way in the course catalog.
after the work was due if it was on time you got a zero. you were not able
to turn work and late and still get partial credit.
The professor specifically Dr. xxxx was very slow to respond
information overload in the amount of material covered. Should have
been revised to intesify learning productivity.
Sometimes impersonal and hard to contact the instructor
I enjoyed the class because of the online facet.

Well you have to figure everything out by yourself or by an assistant.
You can't really just ask the teacher.
There wasnt any problems for me just was mostly on my own which was fine
I was sometimes afraid that maybe my assignments weren't recieved.
I did miss the class interaction I like talking to the teacher weekly
and gettin to know people.
There was nothing that I really disliked about this online course. It was
something new to me and I enjoyed it.
unable to get questions answered on the spot
Everything was ok.
The teacher must stay on top of things as well as the students in order
to keep up to date and do well.
that if you had q's about stuff and it wasn't during your professors office
hours it was hard to get answers
It is very time consuming
though the professor was usually quick with responses to questions

The lack of direct face to face discussion
I didn't get to see my completed assignments and I never knew what
I did wrong.
The time restrictions.
We only had one WebCt class.
I felt that instructor used it to give us more and more assignments not
Our teacher's inexperience.
Lack of face to face communitcation
I missed the face to face interaction.
group projects can be a bit difficult to complete when you don't meet face
The sound quality was poor but understandable.
The audio did not work consistently. Most of the time the audio was
I didn't think that it was always clear as to when assignments were due.
I also did not think that the instructor informed her class in a timely
fashion when there was a change in the schedule.
Sometimes with the two formats being used I got lost!
I am sorry I don't have any.
The technical difficulties.
We did not go online as often as I would have preferred.
Delays in class getting satellite sites on always handled courteously
and efficiently though.
Not having instant feedback.
The professor in this class did an excellent job using GSAMS and webct.
However some GSAMS classes do not utilize the online portion.
this is a great tool!
Having to go all the way to the campus for the first class
Mostly Dr. xxxx' refusal to participate in even nominally "average"
use of WebCT especially when she insisted on making *our* use of
it mandatory and part of our grade.
mail the teacher
The hardware did not always work. We missed an entire class with
a guest speaker.
I found it harder to do group work on
the group projects were very frustrating at times. It was very hard to
get on the same page as some of the group members.
The dependence on others and webCT was horrible when dialing up from home.
Lack of face
Too much group work.
nothing really. Everything was great.
Coordinating group assignments
We had a chat session one night and it was very chaotic.
It's harder to work in groups.
Finding the time to access WebCT from work.
not having an instructor teach us
lack of teacher
Being new to taking online courses since this was my first time.
It was sometimes nervewracking worrying about whether my connection would
last through a test
A physical assessment course should not be an online course.
we did not have the classroom so i felt like we were on a different
page than our teacher.
That I needed hands on lab work
many classes will be wonderful online.``i don't think a health assessment
class``is best online. someone with less nursing experience would have
a hard time
not enough information provided for test
THE PARTICULAR CLASS I TOOK FOR NURSING SKILLS NEEDED TO BE MORE LECTURE

face feels more secure for me.
The constant tech problems and no personal contact.
I would often like my questions answered face to face. Spontaniety
was also a factor.
Couldn't get into chat rooms; trouble posting messages (or some that I
posted disappeared off after I know they were on there). The length
of time it took for a response because it wouldn't post right away.
My firewall at school and my home computer crashing at home keeping me
off the site when I needed it the most.
Chatting it was too unorganized lack proper flow
Not always having the teacher face to face
Work was lost and hard copies had to be kept.
