    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The teacher is very harsh and strict. There are so many rules and guidelines for everything but it's not all on the syllabus. For instance, the information you need for the group project is located in different areas on blackboard; some on the group page, some on the syllabus, and some in the wiki - it's confusing. She overcomplicates simple tasks and when you email her a question to try and clarify, she responds rudely. Deadlines are relatively clear but make sure you read the rubric for assignments in case she decides she wants references or something specific that aren't mentioned on the assignment itself.

    Course highlights:

    One of the assignments involves taking care of a virtual child from birth to 18 years old. It's pretty cool to see how your decisions alter aspects of the child. There is also a part that asks questions about you and certain traits will be represented in the child so it's kinda creepy but also cool. It's considerably realistic for a computer program. The same program is used to simulate your own adult decisions too.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    It's an online class so it's not super difficult. The teacher is the most frustrating part because of all the rules but there is a relatively good amount of extra credit (online office hours and research surveys) and the most of the grade comes from the baby and adult simulations and the quizzes so it's not hard to get a good grade. Use an extra device for quizzes because the questions are in the textbook but the quizzes are on browser lockdown. Just watch out because the quizzes may say one answer is right but the textbook says something else. Try not to take this class unless you absolutely have to is the best thing I can say.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This professor was very knowledgeable about the information he taught. Extremely dedicated and never missed a class. On the downside, professor Aronson did not know how to teach very well and explain topics in depth. Stating facts and topics to review at home is what the course consisted of. Therefore, it is a self taught course in which you must review the work beforehand to actually learn.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was the actual information that I learned. Many facts and descriptions of diseases and the difference in development throughout the ages intrigued me and made the course that much more interesting. The course consisted of attending class to drought down the important terms to study at home. As for the exams, the highlight of this course was the fact that the professor gave a study guide or a limited length of terms that are necessary and for sure going to be found on the exam.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The best advice I can give on taking this course would be to purchase the textbook and study. The professor does not teach, therefore, you must teach yourself and review the chapters as much as possible and in depth. Attending class is a priority that will also help your grade.
