HE WAS AWFUL! He made no sense and rarely talked about the topics you were covering. If you can get someone else, go for it.

WORST. EVER. There were two books to purchase according the syllabus. They cost a little over $100, and we never used them. He makes NO SENSE at all. NONE. I don't know how he is a professor. And he talks about Twitter, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Justin Bieber way more than he talks about anything else. Biggest waste of time and money ever. EVER.

He is the hands down the worse Professor i've ever had. He is a sassy self righteous person so if he ever makes a mistake he's still correct and will tell you with a lot of attitude. His work is pointless as well.

WOW! All I can say is that this "professor" may have to be the worst one on campus!!! His class is extremely easy content wise, but he has to be the biggest drama queen there is! He should not be given the title of a "professor". He is always going on about how important pop culture is and seems to know more about Justin Bieber than IT. Beware!

PLEASE STAY AWAY!! IT425 with Coppage is a nightmare! He doesn't cover any material in class, and the time we spend time in class always talking about the next class(vicious cycle) or he brings in a 'guest speaker'. The whole semester is aimed about our Group Project Presentations. Once again, he doesn't teach anything; its waste of time and money.

He's flamboyant which makes class interesting, but I didn't learn much I didn't already know. DON'T WASTE MONEY ON THE TEXTBOOK we didn't open it once. The homework is easy, and the midterm is the only test. As long as you stay on top of the assigned work and get a good group for the project you'll do fine. He's a character.

DO NOT TAKE THIS. DO NOT.Given that IT in International Business is kind of a stupid topic seeing as how it teaches nothing unique, professor Coppage makes this class even worse. His instructions are impossibly vague and he just makes stuff up as he goes. He wont use email either. There is literally no point to this class.Take another international

This individual teaches many incorrect things and is not willing to correct himself, even when material evidence is provided proving him wrong.   This class is bogus and has no place in the College of Business!     If you value your education as something more than a piece of paper, stay far away from this professor and his immaterial "facts"!

Probably the worst professor I've had at ODU. Goes on way too many tangents and is completely unclear on what he is teaching. Very hard to stay focused. Tests are extremely confusing. Would not recommend him to anyone!

NOT HARD AT ALL. He is straight forward in what he requires. If you follow directions carefully then you are good. One page 10 question homwork assignment due weekly. Answer each quesstion in 2 sentences. I power point project due only 10 slides and 1 midterm and final which questions are pulled from his practice exams and textbook quizzes. Easy!

Take him if you don't have any options. His tests are very unusual. He got all of the above and none of the above in every MC question. Project required but he grades hard.

The class is not hard in the least. However, Professor Coppage is very vague in homework questions, and deducts points for answers that aren't exactly what he is looking for. Attendance is not mandatory, and he puts the info that he uses in class online. Not a hard class, just tedious, and his tone and speaking manor get pretty annoying fast.

Dr. Coppage does a very good job teaching, there is a lot of material but he explains it in an understandable and memorable way. The last couple classes were difficult as he rushed through material before the final. He has an adorable demeanor and is funny and endearing. Grading is fair just, study and pay attention. The large report is a pain.

Dr. Coppage is a smart man, however, the class is useless, and he is extremely vague. The assignments are busy work, and I never once used my "required" text. If you know how to study, and how to cite using APA, you should do fine. I don't see how this is a required class for transfer students. Easy A if you care to try a little.

Useless professor; he provided no help when asked. Unclear answers to questions, and vague directions on assignments. No assignment was helpful. Even when "graded" you may not receive a grade on an assignment; if you do, it's not for weeks anyway.

Possibly one of the WORST professors at ODU. Dr. Mann used to teach the course but unfortunately is deceased and we are stuck with this professor. If there is anyone else teaching the course, I would strongly advise them over him. He is very unclear and incompetent in the subject matter.

BORING. Try to find someone else that is more interesting and doesn't go on rants about how fabulous Lady Gaga is. His class was alright. No one pay attention let alone comes to class. I got a pretty good grade out of the class but I wouldn't take him again.

Should call this class Facebook 101. Entire class was on Facebook. He taught off slides which he put online. Exam came from reading the books, and his slideshows. Very funny guy. I'm his favorite student so I would know :)
