Students were again divided in their opinions regarding the effectiveness of the co-teaching arrangement, with some highly enthusiastic about the results and others feeling a bit lost. Most students responded well to moving some of the work of the course on-line (with mail in weekly assignments, and prompt replies to e-mail) while some felt a bit confused as expectations regarding these methods were not clearly laid out from the beginning.
