The only thing I learned was photoshop, but she made us learn via tutorial which I could have done on my own. I was very afraid to ask her questions...

She makes you feel stupid if you ask any questions and her class is the most boring class you will ever take. Don't take her class

This class can be boring at times but I do not agree with the comments below. IF you do your work and don't act immature then she will not bother you and you will get an A. Dorsey is serious and very blunt but she is not mean. If you talk during lecture then you will be yelled at, but all you have to do is PAY ATTENTION

I completely agree with the ratings below me. ABSOLUTE worse teacher I have EVER had. Not only is she unhelpful but she is rude too, she doesn't have regard for her students at all. She talks down to her students and doesn't help! I wish i saw these ratings before I enrolled because now I'm stuck with this sad excuse of a professor! DO NOT TAKE HE

She is not a good teacher at all. She is very demeaning and has no regard for students or anyone for that matter. Avoid her at all costs. If only we could get the chair to go see how she teaches and how she talks to the students!!!

First off this is the most pointless class I have ever taken. Second there is a ridiculous amount of homework to do which is graded extremely harshly. Dorsey is the meanest, dullest, worst teacher I have ever had and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND not taking her class

This class is god awful. She is monotone, undermines students and treats them as if they're retarded. Her class is the devil, lots of pointless busy work. Grades ridiculously hard and shallow, no respect for students.Class attendance is mandatory and you get accounted for it. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROF WHATEVER YOU DO!

I took Dorsey last Fall, which was the biggest mistake of my life. She is a rediculous grader, is extremely standoffish, does nothing to help students, and worst of all, she treats no one with any respect. She constantly put students down in the middle of class. I could not wait for teacher evals to come out. Don't take any class from her, ever!

There are not enough hateful words that I have for this class. This class has put me to sleep many times. I ditched one class period and made it up in the library, it only took 30 minutes so why is that class 2 hours?!?! Everyone is not kidding when they say she is really mean and seriously evil. I would NOT recommend this teacher to anyone!

Dorsey is an interesting teacher. She clearly states what you have to do during her class, but it is a lot of work. Nothing is hard in her class because the instructions are so detailed. Many people just get bored during class so absolute hate it. But I found it alright because all you have to listen was for an hour then it was hands-on after that.

This teacher is horrible!! She freezes your computers and forces you to pay attemtion to her usless lectures. Then after her lectures you are given a assignment to work in class that may or may not have anything to do with the lecture. And on the sheet she passes out is only information you need to complete the assignment, so again her lectures a
