His "teaching" involved handing out video lectures that were 1:30 long, then made us watch the SAME video the following class. He was supposed to encourage discussion of the videos, but instead he watched them with us during "lecture" with his back against us, so he couldn't even see if we had questions or not. Easily the worst professor at Western

Terrible at conveying information. This man should not be a professor. Those course was awful because of him when I was actually looking forward to it.

I took this class a couple years ago. To the person saying that he is good but he sucks at conveying information, his entire job is conveying information. If he sucks at that, he sucks at his job.

I won't bother talking about the prof. Just make sure to study in a group, or else you will have a hard time...

Unprepared before lectures. He started drawing a circuit on the board once and after 10 minutes of scribbling he gave up and said "shoulda made it into a slide". Kinda sums up his teaching style. I duked it out with him once in class because of how incomprehensible he was. I regret not having complained about him. worst prof. worst grade I ever got

It was many years ago. But still now in my mid 30s I am reminded what an awful, god awful, horrible teacher this guy was. Some migh try and make a connection that he's a pre-madonna and SINCE he was twit that he MUST know what he's talking about. Sadly, he did not. Not only was he an insufferable old coot he had a poor grasp of his course.

What on earth is he talking about!? It's impossible to figure out what's going on in this class about 90% of the time. It doesn't help that we have to use a very cryptic circuit simulator he wrote himself, and don't have a real textbook OR online notes. He wants to be helpful, but can't communicate. Most stressful course I've ever taken.

Good course, good prof. Nice guy, always has interesting anecdotes. Assignments were fun (code breaking) and relatively easy once you got the idea.

Guess I'm going against the grain here. I got over 90% in his course. It's hard and he's not the greatest at conveying information. However, he is a very nice guy if you actually go to his office and talk to him, and he is willing to help you. You're in 3rd year Comp Sci. Other profs have babied you up to this point. Webber won't do that.

It's too bad he's too paranoid to use the web, I'd have loved for him to read the other comments!

Predicted that the internet would come to a stop because of insecurities in PDF files... Wrote a terribly buggy, slow unbelievable mess of an application for emulating hardware, forced class to use it for every assignment. Avoid this guy like Black Death.

I can't think of enough bad things to say about this retard. He forces you to do completely random**** on the exams like encode your answers in base 8 and then take mod 5 of that and put that number on your scantron. He's an ****. And his course, while having assignments, were not required to be handed in until the last day. A complete ****.

Rediculous use of scantron sheets. 6 sheets for a single 20-question exam! Unbelieveable. Also docked my final mark 3% for putting my name in the wrong place on a test. I put my name where it said "name"... my mistake. Refused to reverse it. Got special permission to continue in Honors because this guy is totally unreasonable. AVOID AT ALL COST

Just read below, it pretty much sums it up. Except for the fact that he is the meanest person I've ever had as a professor.

He just seems unintrested in his topic and his evaluation methods leave much to be desired. Rather then assignments we wrote AIs to play tictactow. Our grade then became our placment in the tournements. Thus regardless of functionality no matter what there were always people failing assignments.

His way of teaching is really boring. Needs to put more time on each of the topics instead of just rushing through all the notes. Logic is something that needs to be developed through time. His laugh is funny too, he always stop in the middle of his laugh in case nobody else in the class laughs.
