Hiba's feedback

Q1
Were the objectives and procedures of the final project clear?
Yes they were.
Q 2
Were the weekly Internet activities difficult / medium / easy?
Medium.
Please indicate which one was the most difficult for you and why?
When you ask us to write about a sent site, because we don’t have the abilities as time, suitable internet connection, and energy.
Q 3
Which activity, whether online or in-class, was the most or the least inetersting for you? Why?
Online: most: a game ;) I like to play
Least: talking about a site. The reasons above
In-class: most: discussion. I like to discus and think
Least: self reviewing. I need someone to guide me.
Q 4
Do you think using a Yahoo! Group for our communication outside the classroom, was a good idea? Why?
Yes of course, because we need to practice as much as we can, and the student sometimes face a small problem which can stop his work.
Q 5
How did you like creating and using group-weblogs for your final project during this class?
It was a nice experiment and it’s easy to use in compare with other internet tools.
Do you think your blog has made your work easier and faster or not? Please explain?
Yes. The e-work is always easier and faster in creation and modification.
Q 6
Academic Encounters is the text book for the new English 162 program. How did you like it? Do you think it has helped you or could help you in your other science courses? Explain please?
It was ok, but I felt it not suitable for a science student. Personally, I need something concerned with scientific issues. The only topic that I liked was the nonverbal communication.
Q 7
Is this your first time using PowerPoint program?
No.
Have you learned new presentation skills? Explain?
Yes, because I did my work in a new version of PowerPoint program, such as adding some movies and sounds.
Q 8
During this Fall 2004 we were unable to use a computer lab to do some Internet activities. Do you think this was one of the reasons you were unable to complete some activities from your home? Explain?
It was a critical reason, especially for those who don’t have a computer or an internet connection at home, and those who don’t have an enough knowledge to do these activities.
Q 9
Do you think this English 162 helped you improve your English? How? Please specify which one of these language skills has improved: writing / speaking / reading / listening.
Yes, all but the writing skill is the most improved one.
Q10
What would you like to see added / modified / deleted from the ONline Extension your teacher designed to help you study? Why?
It was good for me.

Nour's feedback


Hi mrs Buthaina..
About the objectives & procedures they were clear,
the weekly internet was easy, I can not remember which
One was the most difficult.
I was intresting about making the blog & work on it & also
about learning how to use the power point. Using the yahoo
group was very good idea coz it save time for us & also to
communicate with u for necessary situation, also we can found
all info. We need and other activity as H.Ws.
The blog was very helpful, coz it is help the group member to
communicate & to show all info. That each member found which
help them to wrote their topic in correct way.
The text book is not benefit for scince coz I think it is for psycologist
but it was interesting. This is the first time I use the power point
& I learned new skills, it was interesting.
Well yes I improved my english specially the writing, speakin by
speaking with u in english all the time J & by doing presentation
& raeding. Finally, nothing to add coz every thing needed for the
course was exist & nothing to delet coz all was usfull.

Thanx
