CGS 1100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: Not Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

This class was the most confusing class I have ever taken. You will spend a tremendous amount of time figuring out what you are suppose to do. Definitely don't take this unless you are very familiar with the software. You receive very little to no help if you take this class online. She makes you print things out and take them to the campus.

CGS1100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

She was not helpful at all, rude and confusing and the homework didn't follow the text. She changed the date of our final a few days before it was to be taken cause she "used the wrong calendar" which left most of us taking it on proctor for 34$. You also have to drop off the homework printed out and on two USB drives. So much for an online class.

COP2010 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

The material (homework and labs) are hard to understand. She will not go along with the syllabus. She will also test you on material that she never went over on class, that is not in the textbook, and was not in her PowerPoint Slides. I would not recommend this teacher for any courses if you can keep from it.

CGS1100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Withdrew from this class. Not a true online class of you have to drive to school to turn in and pick up assignments. Also her pages upon pages of the syllabus/assignment instructions are difficult to follow and ridiculous. You will spend hours searching her website just to piece together what she wants from an assignment. AVOID!

CIS1000 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

This instructor is very rude. She disrespected a fellow classmate because all he did was ask if there will be a Final Review made available because on her Syllabus showed that there will be one made available. When he asked, she replied, "Not been reading the Lessons?" She is hard to get a hold of. Will spend days waiting for a reply (e-mail).

CGS1100 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Dr. McManus's instructions throughout the course were ALL over the place. It was very hard to keep us with what was due and when. If you are planning on traveling a lot during this online course, DONT. It is mandatory to physically turn in all homework and attend tests. Worst online class I have taken by far. Not very clear.

Dr Meg was very helpful throughout the class. If you communicate with her she will work with you. She does not have much patience for those who do not do their work or show up late. In class she will bring up things that you are doing wrong to use it as a learning tool and not to call you out as others have said. Definitely recommend.

She's nice but she lacks patience. I feel like she expects you to already know how to do everything she's teaching you. Also if you mess up she WILL call you out in front of the entire class. Its only a hard course if your like me and know nothing about computers. My advice learn the basics about Word, Excel and PowerPoint before signing up.

Upon first impression she was your stereotypical irritable older women, but as the semester went on this spring her husband died and it truly changed her. She became much more forgiving and does everything within her power to help you as long as you make the effort. She does have difficultly explaining certain computer topics though.

She seems kinda mean at first but yall she is extremely kind and forgiving. You have to work very hard. But she will re-grade and re-grade and re-grade. If you put forth the effort that woman will get you through it even if computers are a foreign language to you. loved her.

COP1000 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Text was listed as required, then never used. Assigned last homework due last day of class with test on topic same day(hope you understood it). If she stopped telling the same stories and taught the subject this class might be worth the money. I live in FWB and will drive to Crestview to avoid her in the future.

Everyday of the class consists of following exactly what she does at a fast pace. It is hard to really understand the material because if you fall behind or click on the wrong thing she will call you out in front of the class and embarrass you.She also piles on tons h.w. assignments at once. She is by far the worst teacher I have ever come across.

I grew up with computers and I am far from computer illiterate. The class was the hardest A I've ever earned. The instructions are extremely hard to follow, and she is not clear when responding to questions. I took her class online. It is possible to make an A, but impossible to make an A+

If you shut up and listen to her, you will get everything correct. assignments are done on line and she lets you do them before hand to bring to here so you can get 100s. just a matter of what you are willing to do for a "A" i liked her! thought she was funny! even though she forgets and tells the same story 12 times sometimes. Good teacher

I took online class. She normally answered my questions by email within 24 hours. Taking an online class b/c of my schedule is hard with her, you still have to go to the campus for assignment turn in & pick up. Not a good online class. It is complicated to find someone at the campus to pick up your assignments making it that much harder on you.
