Class can get confusing because of the layout of modules. You can literally skip all the videos and the Intro's/Overviews to the modules and still easily complete the module. He takes the papers very seriously so do a good job on those and you will pass. Try to stay 1 module ahead of the schedule, it pays off.

Loved it, finished it in less than a week! I absolutely hate history, but it was fun since it included literature and music. 15 quizzes (can take quizzes an unlimited amount of times) and 2 essays (only 750 words each), 87.5% = A! It really does make me want to travel to Pont-du-Gard in France, Constantine's basilica in Germany, and much more.

Very rude. Blames missed deadlines and "poor" submitted work that was his fault on the student. Grumpy almost every day when he comes to class. The only good thing is that he responds quickly to messages. Otherwise, take someone else as your English teacher.

Richard's class is not for those wanting to skate through an easy online course. He provides all his own material so you don't have to buy a textbook, and the material is extremely entertaining/informative at the same time. Be prepared to spend a LOT of time studying and writing, but in my opinion it was well worth the money. Great course!

The class isn't difficult but he is. His lectures are all online, boring although he is animated. I tried hard to understand his questions which usually resulted in him telling me I missed the point. I got tired of hearing it and gave up. Not sure what he wanted; very unclear. Lots of work, reading the lectures etc. Take anyone else but him!

Horrible teacher. Not clear on what he wants with papers and discussions. Had us watch many videos in real player format. I hadn't seen real player videos since early 2000's FAR behind the times technologically.

I'm a 3.8 GPA student with 120 college credits. I've completed Freshman-Senior level classes. This is NOT a Sophomore level course. This is a 3-cr course, but the reading/studying required is as though it's a 5-cr course. He says there's a problem with all of us, but if all his students are subpar to his standards, it may be his teaching methods!

Very very poor teacher, grades based off his feelings and how he feels that day, not the work you did. Definantly recommend taking somebody else

Well, he certainly put a lot of time into his modules but there is a lot of material to cover (expect to study for 6-8 hours per quiz and there are a ton of them). Also many test questions have two correct answers which is frustrating but only one will be 'correct'. Grade 'A' students will struggle to get a B. If GPA is important look elsewhere.

Hated this class. Lots of reading, watching videos and writing notes. Tricky multiple question tests that often had two appropriate answers. Trick answers. Difficult to rebuttal online. I wasn't willing to bet my 4.0 gpa on a power hungry teacher who purposely makes his class difficult and makes a wonderful subject into a bad experience.

This guys is a really good teacher. He is clear on what he wants and expects. He is a no nonsense person. Makes you really think. There is alot of reading that is the only down fall.Love his info. If you do not like to read do not take this class.

Professor Felnagle is very clear in his requirements for the class. The synthesis papers are not difficult if you put some thought into the topics: he does not simply hand you the connections you are to make on your own. The reading is much less than what is required in university classes. The study guides are thorough (long), but worth it.

This was a great class. The lecture videos were very entertaining, Mr Felnagle clearly has a great passion for this subject, and he worked very hard on compiling this online course. All instructions are clearly written out in the syllabus and the two required papers weren't that difficult. I would definitely recommend this teacher and this class.

good lectures, he worked hard on his site He is egotistical, you have to write 2 1000 wrd papers, the instuctions are 3 pages, and 15min video* He didnt respond to an emails ina timely maner. In said paper you are to come to you "own" conclusion(that has to match what his is)or you will get no credit. The 2 papers were absoultly ridiculous.3.85 gpa

This guy was a crack-up, loved watching his videos. He was quirky. He clearly worked hard to put the class together so that you don't have to buy a book and he only gave you the important information. The synthesis papers were not hard and he gave great feedback. Nice to have an online teacher that actually taught the class.

If you're looking for an easy online class don't take him. The material was boring, the tests were too short and the synthesis papers were hard and pointless. He doesn't round your grade whatsoever so if you're a point away from the next grade bracket he won't help you out, so be careful.

Like everyone else has said, the 2 papers for this class are difficult. The timed quizzes go by really fast. It is a lot of reading but he is funny and the material is interesting. If you are looking for an easy online class this is not the one for you.

This was the worst class that I have ever taken. The amount of reading that needs to be done is insane, the study guides are awful, and the two synthesis papers that you have to write are close to impossible to write. The points structure also comes with additional strings...Take this class with a different teacher!

Professor Felnagle is extremely passionate about this subject and really wants you to take something away from his class. You don't need a text book but have to read a lot from his study units (which by the way is not a bad thing, he really knows a ton about the subject and it's awesome that he put these units together). Lots of busy work, but easy

Mr. Felnagle is the most interesting lecturer I've heard (for an online course). He really knows (and loves!) his subject. No textbook req'd and as long as you do the homework, you'll pass the quizzes My first college A was in his class.
