" I really enjoyed taking this class! I am in Nursing so this class is unlike any other course I have had the opportunity of taking. Also I like the online webinars because it gave me flexibility in my timetable! Thanks! image: geezaweezer
Overall I found the course to bethe best attempt I have seen atengaging student in distanceeducation as it seemed to do anexcellent job of crafting the coursecompletely with the intent of itbeing received over the internetrather than the apparent statusquo of shuffle pre-existing courseto work online. I think theemphasis on creating a webclassroom with the use of moreproprietary class web pages wasvery helpful. I feel the webinarswere quite good though I hadtrouble attending due totimezones difference so perhapsthe course could consider in thefuture making the webinars moreflexible in regards to time. image: moriza

I admire this course for several reasons. Primarily, in adapting to modern changes in workforce requirements, Film 240 is pushing traditional academic boundaries. Secondly, Film240 has served as my most interesting class because of how integrated the subjects are with my activities on a day to day basis, as well as the capacity for online discussion.image: cafemama
image: moriza I found this class very interesting and unlike some of my other classes, it was really fun to attend the lectures! I loved that everything was online and it seems like the future for other classes as well..!
I often attend the online webinars even though I was enrolled in section 001. I found the webinars to be extremely convenient and a very effective learning tool. I given the choice again I would definitely enroll in the online section of this course.image: striatic
Overall, I feel this class was very effective at encouraging active participation.The webinars were a novel and interactive alternative to the standard onlinecourse, and I sincerely hope that they will soon become feasible for all onlinecourses to use.Without a doubt, this course made the best use of technologythan any other I have taken during my four years at Queens. One of the maincriticisms I have had of other online courses is that the price of taking them isthe same as a lecture course, yet fewer resources are typically used to deliverthem. I am pleased that this course is an exception, and I feel that theexperience was well worth the price. I also appreciate the manyopportunities to make suggestions on how to make the course even better.Thank you for all your hard work in designing this high quality course! image: thekevinchang
image: polapix This course is greatand I love the onlineaspect of it because Idont have to worryabout making it to classas its just a few clicksaway. Thanks so muchfor the amazing term!
image: *clarity*This is a very enjoyable course and the online socialmedia participation definitely enhanced my learningexperience. Being able to communicate with so manypeers in an open forum such as Moodle provides agreat deal of benefit to all students. Thank you.
Thank you very much for providing me with such aninformative course! When I was signing up for it, I trulydidnt know what to expect (with it being my first onlinecourse). I am very inclined to take as many onlinecourses as possible, it really fits my personality and I "believe gives an accurate reflection of my knowledgeas well. Hope to see you soon in another online course :) image: dusk-photography
