What a bad teacher. I don't know how to deal with having such an ignorant professor. I received a 98% in this course, and afterwards I sent him a 27 page, single-spaced, paper with all the problems with his course. Hope it's better for you all next year.

higgs is a really nice cat. people say he's never around but i found him super quick w/ responses. all his emails thru d2l can get annoying but its harmless. means well. his 50 online quizzes throughtout the rerm are annoying as heck but not hard. easy marker. tip: penalizes giving your opinions in papers. overall highly recommended.

not a bad prof, but he is often a little hard to reach because of travels. Online couse was very dry, but not to hard. There was chapter assignments, and the book sucks! but as a teacher colin higgs was pretty good, but i was not a fan of the course (but I loved that there were no exams ! )

I did this course online and it was the best thing I ever did! NO TESTS OR EXAMS! Just a bunch of reading quizzes every week. It's a bit of work (continuous reading) but it is soo interesting and VERY easy to get an A. He was also very good at getting back to emails quickly. Highly reccomend

He was an okay teacher for an online course, would have been easier if he was around more, but was always out of the country doing something. Assignments were straight forward, found the exam really hard to prepare for, since they are all in the classrooms now, wasn't multiple choice either so we had to know our stuff.

Higgs is awesome! My favorite prof ever :). This course is a lot of work (reading quizzes), but sooo easy. A lot of the exam questions are right from the practice exam. The text is really important, so know your stuff!

He is always willing to help when you have problems, but his explainations are not always the most clear. I had him for distance and never met him, but seems like a nice man.

This course may be an easy one, but I did not sign up to do a course that is designed to work against the student. I still did well in the course, but would have done much better, given a better professor that would have been more consistent in testing. Thanks for nothing.

Dr. Higgs is an awesome distance ed instructor. He is very organized & clear, usually anwers emails the same day & will do anything to help. His test are very fair & gives you pratice midterms to help you study. The course is easy as long as you read the your book & do your assignments. I would recommond doing this course with Dr. Higgs 100%.

Material is easy if you're not lazy. provides lots of pratice for midterms. Hint: the mc q's on the midterms come DIRECTLY from the practice exams. copy them and Cntrl+f in word.... Assingments were interesting and easy. Make sure you study material prior or have a few friends to help you look up the material.
