Course Reviews

Here are my evaluations for the Fall semester. I’ve picked out a few of the more interesting comments.

Truest quote:

The workload is a bit much for brand new material.

This is a persistent issue in the class — we cover a lot of material.  The class goes over Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.  We also spend a lot of time working on Capsim, which is a business simulation.  I enjoy Capsim, as it gives a practical context to the abstract skills people learn.  However, it has a significant learning curve.  I’ve been using the MBA version of the class to develop a simpler business game that doesn’t involve quite as many details.

 

On a lighter side, some people left humorous comments

Funny, helps learning stale information slightly less painful.

Capsim is fun despite people’s hatred towards it

 

Several left nice comments

There is a lot about excel and word especially that I did not know. This has already been beneficial to me throughout work and school. I feel like this course will be extremely helpful at the beginning of a student’s educational experience.”
