cis1150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: What textbook? Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

Do not pick this man to be your instructor. His syllabus is confusing and he has NO TEACHING SKILLS! I am a great student and I was not intimidated by the reviews, but it was a mistake choosing his class. Don't waste your tuition, in fact you are 100% better off taking this class online because you will be doing the work on your own anyways.

CIS2571 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: N/A

I didn't listen to all the warnings on here, thinking he couldn't be that bad. He is the worst professor I've come across. Reads directly off of power points and then has irrelevant questions on the exams. Over half the class dropped due to his terrible teaching after the midterm. He attributed it to difficult material, which wasn't very difficult.

Does not have the ability to effectivly teach. Gives hasty direction without articulating concepts and methodology. Save yourself the time and money and find another teacher. Any teacher.

Prof. Moravati is a great teacher. The difficulty of the course and his clarity are irrelevant. Although he teaches mainly from PowerPoint he is very helpful if you seek him out and he is incredibly interested and inspired by the computer science field. If you are open to listening you will be inspired as well.

He was not helpful and didn't actually teach the class. The only way to get by is by using codeacademy. Don't take the class with him unless necessary

If you can avoid his class, DO IT. He doesn't understand what he's teaching. You ask him a question and he won't answer it. It looks like he took some other teacher's homework assignments and has no idea what they are. He reads right off of the ppt and doesn't elaborate on any of the concepts. Please save your GPA and don't take him.

PowerPoint teacher. Very dull, seems to know plenty but doesn't care to make the class interesting. Helpful guy if you seek him out. The bad ratings on here are pathetic because obviously these students haven't put in the needed effort. It takes effort people, this is college. Too many people here used to doing nothing for an A.

CIS-1150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Low Grade Received: N/A

If you need help, he'll help, if you have questions, he'll answer, but this is a very boring class. He reads directly off a powerpoint which is straight from the book. Nice guy, but boring teacher. Try not to be so easily offended, he doesn't have American mannerisms and so he may come off rude; I think it's just a cultural thing. Takes attendance.

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

Been working on a project for ten plus hours... Expects us to know everything. Goes off the slides the author of the book provided. Do not take him. Might as well buy the book and do it yourself..

Believe it or not, he wants to teach Java by reading PPT slides word by word. Literally: he will read the title, then the objectives and everything else except the slide number. The tests have stuff that wasn't yet covered; the last assignment was impossible to complete with concepts from the chapters covered up to that point.

power point teacher. lectures in class were pointless all of his grading was done thru the book. teacher relied solely on power points. test had nothing to do with lectures same with homework. i would never recommend this teacher. no discussion ever, just read power points

Unprepared instructor who relies on powerpoints to teach his class. If you can, take another professor or just do it online. You get more from the book than this instructor and his ego. If you're just trying to get into a Computer Language at COD, go with Louis Christakes who teaches C++, I promise you'll thank me. Thorough and helpful!

This guy can't teach at all! The class is basically an independent study. you can't understand him half of the time, and he doesn't answer questions clearly. Lectures were boring, off powerpoints that were straight out of the book.

Awful teacher. The only thing he does is reading the power points from the book. He may know stuff but doesn't know to transmit it to other people. Our class is supposed to be from 6 to 9:50. Sometimes he finishes at 8 and refuses to cover any more material or show any examples. I guess he didn't know where to go after being laid of and started tea

His class goes through by power point. He just read the lecture line by line from the power-point. If you are willing to learn,I wouldn't recommend him.
