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