I had a very bad experience with the instructor - he centered me out throughout the entire class - asked me continuously if I on pace or knew how to do the work. If I asked him a question he seemed anger made me feel little, stupid, he was very condescending. At one point he helped me and he said things like "this is a desktop" "do you know that?" others laughed. I almost left the course halfway through. I'm a much older person and First Nations and I'm shocked he treated me the way he did. It's like I was less of a person, discriminating, and etc.

My payments were taken care of by last minute training with the University of Alberta. The teacher was good, the content was good.
I already completed a survey at the end of the course so not sure why I have to complete another survey on line? LOL

I would have preferred using the manual given to follow, so I could add my notes to each area as we worked through the course. Unfortunately all my notes are in the beginning of the book as we, only looked it once, when a student asked what page we were on.
