VERY time consuming with 7 hours of video, textbook reading, and long reviews There were 4 quizzes, 4 tests, 2 essays, and the grading system is horrible. The quizzes and tests are shortly timed with the most random and tricky multiple choice questions ever. Unless you have a photographic memory - DO NOT take this online class!

Not a big fan of history but you will learn it if you want a good grade. Must read the book. Very friendly, good sense of humor, and is a good teacher. Very little actual work but you WILL learn! Gives you lots of test and quiz prep. You can NOT expect any help from Google here my friends....

This was my second course with Dr. Smant and both times I enjoyed his class. He loves history and you can't help but like it also. He uses videos and music to keep your interest. Believe me it worked on a Friday evening. I highly recommend Dr. Smant.

Funny professor and interesting class. I had him for Friday classes which were 3 hrs long, but he kept the class interesting with videos and music. All tests were ONLINE, but that does not mean they were easy! Don't think you can just google the answers and get an A. You have to use all your resources. Assignments online. Timed final. Good class!

Took Online Class. He loves History and it shows. He has a good sense of humor. Uses Videos & Music in his lecture reviews. gives opportunity for 9 extra credit pts each test. Learned a lot. Need to read Text, watch videos and study the reviews. If you prioritize, you will make a good grade and learn some History! Recommend him for Hist 1301

Read the book or fail. Tests were all take home except the final, but you have to think critically about the answers. Not straight-forward at all! Overall good teacher, YOU WILL LEARN HISTORY if you want a good grade.

**DL class. Easy A. I do not enjoy US history at all, and I very much enjoyed the textbook and the professor. Review sessions are helpful, and he gives an extra 5 points on the test if you go. Dr. Smant is very nice, helpful, and funny. I highly recommend the study guide because he uses those questions on the test!

He loves history but so do I. Lectures are on video-free through BlackBoard. Videos are documentary style which made it more interesting & easier to learn material, practically through osmosis. Took in summer: 3 exams only. 5 points /reveiw attended. Recommend at least watch videos & go through study guide if don't read book. I thouroughly enjoyed!

I just took his ITV class and it was very straight forward. You have to study thoroughly (I probably studied about 5 hours for each test) but everything is based directly off of his reviews. You can earn a total of 9 bonus points for each test, and I highly recommend going to his seminars. Ended up getting an A+ in the class

*ONLINE* Best part... before every test there is a test prep seminar at NE where you get 5 points on your exam if you show. There are 3 exams and he drops the lowest then there is a FINAL which is not inclusive. There is oncampus testing. Would take again

I took the ITV class. Keep in mind that history is my worst subject and I made an 89. He holds seminars/test reviews that are very helpful and reward extra credit. He is also a very funny, intersting guy. I'd take him again.

I took the ITV course this spring. Great class, probably one of the easiest classes I've had in awhile. As long as you study his study guides and the study guide that goes with the book you will do fine. He does test reviews on campus before the tests, does a great job of covering the material!!

Took ITV, really straightforward. He gives a study guide, so....if you do it the test is no problem. He drops the lowest test score, gives EC, and a curve. You need to buy both books, they are very inexpensive.
