Phil 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took this class online in the summer. I felt I would've done better in a real classroom. The work requirement is minimal each week, but the tests are very HARD. He really makes you question your answer. Prepare to study a lot for your tests, or take it in an actual class to best understand the material is my recommendation.

PHIL 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

This online class was very easy. The whole course is only 8 chapters from the textbook, discussions every week, and 4 tests. I feel like I did not learn a lot, and I would have preferred an in person section that is harder. But having this easy class definitely helped the grades in my other classes.

PHIL 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

He is extremely helpful when you email him, but in terms of communicating to the class and making objectives clear; he needs a little work. I feel I would have done better if I took an in person section. He's not bad, but not great.

PHIL 102 Taken for Credit:Yes Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: You need it sometimes Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

Took as an online class, very easy. It's easy to miss a lot of the test questions, though too, and that can lower your grade quickly. He offers makeup tests, but I found those to be a little harder. I did all the discussions and usually got a 16/20 for the tests and ended up with a B-.

PHIL 102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

The class was easy. A weekly discussion question and tests, but overall the teacher was not that great. When we took online tests he took FOREVER to post the grades, so aggravating! Easy class, but would not recommend the teacher. Not very reliable.

PHIL102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

I took the online class, this is a skeleton review of philosophy 102. EASY to understand, Easy to pass with A/B. Work Required: DB Posts (2times/week) & tests weekly. So glad I took this class, Professor posts grades promptly, is available at all times, and provides great references to understand course content. Need an easier class? Take this one!

I took his online class and the only reason I got a C was because I missed an exam. The class is easy enough if you actually do the work. Philosophy isn't an easy A like most people think.

PHIL102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

Mr. Voltura knows his material. Unfortunately his poorly designed powerpoints, and lack of communication make his Distance Education Course difficult to follow. His tests are unpredictable, only testing on a few topics. If you are taking this for Gen Ed, find someone else. The re-takes are available, but the same unpredictability exists.

Extremely hard class. I would recommend not taking it online. Tests are pretty difficult, but if you ask for help, he is more than willing to help you.

PHILO102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

His tests seem to test on only couple concepts, so if you get those concepts you should do fine. NOt the best professor I have taken, but took his class online. You get graded on 4 exams & 10% is discussion posts. I felt he was wishy washy at times. wouldn't recommend to others.

Took his online class. Overall, it was a pretty easy online class, you just need to keep up to date with the discussion posts due weekly. Also make sure you read the chapters he assigns. His tests are unpredictable sometimes, he seems to test on only couple concepts--so if you understand that concept you should do fine. Offers ReTests, which helps!

PHI102 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Took this class online. Have mixed feelings about this dude. His tests are kind of tricky, especially the first one, but they eased up a little bit I think cuz everyone was either gettin a C or below. But he's a helpful prof., just email him Qs and you should be fine. There are only like 3 tests though, but he gives retakes. Final is 25% of grade.

This course is difficult but Jerry made it simple. He is always there for you. He has all kinds of supplemental information for the course. You have the Textbook, diagrams, he is always on-line for you, has a 24 hours ph# for you to call for extra help. His discussions are creative! You actually, come out being a smarter person!! He ROCKS!

I hated the subject but if you just spend five minutes a day you can make a C or better. I thought the final was way harder then the other 4 test. You have to take it, so I would recommend him.

Took online class. Professor was very kind and helpful and participated in our class discussions along with the students. Quizzes are a little tricky but he lets you do one retake for each.

he seems like a nice guy and says he'll help you out whenever you need it but don't ask him to explain anything to you. He gave me the shortest answers EVER and didn't really answer my questions. He told me MULTIPLE TIMES he was going to curve the grade at the end and DIDN'T. It's fine if teachers don't curve but don't lie about it!

I took this class online. The professor is very friendly and helpful. There are weekly discussion questions, which are very easy to answer. I thought the first quiz was a little tricky. The rest of the quizzes and tests were much easier though. There were only four homework assignments. Overall, this was a very easy class.
