Thanks to Dr. Jennifer Beales this course (being my first online course) has been absolutely fantastic and has really set the bar high. I think Dr. Beales has an amazingly structured course and I love that the weekly assignments keep me on top of things. Part of what made my experience so enjoyable was that Dr. Beales was so available as an online professor and really added a personal touch to the course and made me feel like I was more than just an online number. She went out of her way to personally message students to ask how they were finding the course and encouraging them to ask questions. But what surprised me was she took the time to read all of our 'Introduction' posts and catered her e-mail to ask about us specifically. It's been an absolutely fantastic semester so far - so Thank you Dr. Beales!!
