I used a survey in blackboard to get feedback from students in week 5 of the course in addition to the usual end-of-term student evaluations. The student response to the course was generally positive. The majority expressed appreciation for the organization and consistency throughout the course. They also were pleased with the quick response time to their posted questions. My feedback on the survey responses from week 5 will give you a sense of the issued students raised.
Students have also noted that they actually feel like they have had more interaction with me in the online class that than they would have had in the face-to-face class. While most of this interaction has been electronic, they value it highly. They also appreciate the ability to self pace each week and some have noted that because of the increased self reliance they are actually performing better and more responsibly than they do in traditional classes.
