He has an uncanny was of making things easier to understand and a passion for teaching astronomy. If you truly want to learn about the universe, I would urge you to take Prof. Swangin's course. You won't regret it.

The best online lab course around with podcasts, windows media presentations, and Skype chat sessions. It's a great way to take a 4 credit lab course at home. He really knows his stuff!

An excellent teacher for an online course. Not recommended for those who think the course is a "piece of cake." You'll certainly learn a lot.

absolutely terrible, doesnt care at all, doesnt respond to email or post on discussion board. Pays no attention to the class. Tests make no sense and he is impossible to reach, which is important for an online class. He sucks, do not take him, one of the worst professors ive had

He is hard but fair even for an online course. Once you get to know him, you'll find out that he has a passion for astronomy and really cares about his students.

Terrible online class. No help, no feedback to help you understand. Expects way too much for a general ed class.

I am a science major and will be lucky to PASS this astronomy course with him. He is unhelpful in every sense of the word. DO NOT TAKE!

Extremely helpful and very concerned about his students. It was the best online course I have ever had. Now I'm really interested in astronomy.

Online astronomy. Absolutely impossible to communicate w/ this professor. Ignored my emails and voice mails. I was ready to unleash my helicopter mother on him. He took all the grades off Blackboard the minute the final grade was submitted. I never knew what I got on the last assignment I submitted. AVOID AVOID AVOID

Had him for online astronomy and he was horrible - impossible to get in touch with, not a good communicator and didn't "teach" but rather posted assignments without clearly explaining what we were doing. He made a confusing subject even more boring and incomprehensible. NOT recommended.

His exams were somewhat hard, but his labs were very hard after the first two. The exams weren't hard because i took him for astronomy online, but overall he was tough.
