- “The only things I did not like about the course/ layout of the course has all been fixed by the new layout, so I really enjoyed the ease of the course. There wasn't much that I didn't like about the course. I had a few issues with the older layout when I would copy my assignments from the word document in order to submit it, but that has also been fixed through the new layout.”

- “...it was set up well and very easy to follow. I like the tab bar on the right hand of the screen; it is really easy to see where you are at in the course. The assignment and grades tabs at the top were very helpful when I was studying for the chapter and final test. It was really easy to email my teachers without getting off of the site. I really like how the site remembers where you are at so you don't have to find it each time you get on. I really like all of the other web pages that I was sent to during this course. I found them filled with information that was useful to me and to the course. Thank you for all of the hard work that was put into making these courses!”
