"Amazing lectures" "Clear grading criteria" "Would take again"

Just do all of the homework, and you should get a good grade. Quiz's are very easy, never studied once. You dont have to take any notes, he hands out printed sheets of the notes everyday. Class usual ends early also. Very good teacher! I learned a lot and easily passed

"Gives good feedback" "Would take again" "Clear grading criteria"

Fair grader and stuck to the schedule that was laid out at the start of the class which allowed plenty of time between assignments. Assignments were explained well and if help was needed Kulanjiyil was available in a very timely manner. Assignments were all meaningful to the subject matter with the appropriate amount of freedom for essay choices.

PHILO1150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: A

Strict attendance policy. Lot of assignments (papers, group work, ect). Several quizzes, midterm, final. Did not care for him, not very helpful, will not allow make up quizzes. Doesn't answer questions - brushes them off or goes in a different direction with them. Try a different professor, you will not enjoy this class unless you're super diligent

PHIL 1110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Barely cracked it open Rater Interest: Meh Grade Received: N/A

You only need the book for the writing assignments (just copy the prompt from someone in class). He lectures everyday and summarizes all key points of the text. The class was quite interesting and he has fun stories. The only problem was that nobody wanted to discuss in my class, but he said his other class was rather active in discussions.

PHILO-1110 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: Mandatory Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: It's my life Grade Received: A

This is a very interesting and challenging class. There are 6 papers to write total. There is a lot of memorization involved in this class about specific details. The instructor is nice, strict, and teaches quite well. There are no foods and no drinks allowed during class.

Dr K's Biomedical Ethics class was a walkover. He is very enthusiastic about the subject and makes the information extremely easy to understand in his lectures. Offers loads of extra-credit. Take this class if u need an easy A. It's fun too. Lots of group work and presentations.

Dr. Kulanyilil is awesome, class is super fun and interesting. He is passionate about what he does and cares for his students, just had him for Biomedical ethics and class was always interesting and easy A if you put in the effort. Biomedical ethics is basically his baby at COD and who better to learn from than the father! Thumbs up for Coolness!!!

Dr. Kulanyilil is a great teacher. His class is so easy and he is really passionate about the subject. As long as you do the assignments and listen in class, it will be a breeze. I definitely recommend him, especially if you want an easy A in an interesting class.

PHILO1150 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: It's a must have Rater Interest: Sorta interested Grade Received: N/A

He is a great teacher! He usually only lectures for 15-20 minutes then we watch a video and usually end with some group work. His accent isn't bad I've never been not able to understand him. Midterm & final, a few quizzes. HW is a few "reflection papers" that are one page double spaced - easy points. Over all easy class and he makes it interesting!

relig1100 Taken for Credit:N/A Attendance: N/A Textbook Use: Essential to passing Rater Interest: Really into it Grade Received: N/A

Dr. K is great, though his accent is deep and he is often hard to understand and a bit biased towards his background faiths of Hindi and Christianity. Gives a lot of extra credit and leads discussions where you actually learn something. His name is actually spelled Kulanjiyil according to BB. I would take another course with him any day easy A!

Decent teacher. I personally had no problems with him, but after reading a few reviews could see why people would. He did talk about India (but that was b/c he was running a trip 4 it). Book was expensive but you didn't need it as he put the notes online and went over what u should have read in class. If u want an easy A or B take this class.

He was super nice and such a cool guy. He's understanding and very pleasant. His accent is really thick which can be unfortunate at times, but he's clear, consistent, and super nice. I had him for Biomedical Ethics and I HIGHLY recommend him. He made the class so interesting!

Good professor overall. He posts all his notes online, and gives you easy assignments. There is absolutely no reason to not get an A or a B in this class, he is an easy grader.Even his quizzes were pretty easy. Just put in effort and you will be fine.

The guy can barely speak English. He's a flaming liberal but if you can put up with all that it really is an easy A. You don't need to read the book at all. He posts study guides on blackboard and gives you the answers before the tests. If you want to learn something, take another class. If you want to boost your GPA, look no further.
