Students in this course felt that far too much time was spent on WebCT elements of the course and that far less explanation would have sufficed. Several felt lost when dealing with vaguely worded examinations. Some commented that the instructor seemed distant and unapproachable, but nevertheless students gave him credit for a sincere effort and dedication to the course.

Students agree that lectures for this course had the content that was needed but were quite disorganized. Professor Creechan often began classes late and occasionally strayed off topic or spoke on unnecessary subjects, but quizzes were helpful and provided great incentive to attend classes. Overall the professor was still funny, easy to talk to and did a reasonable job.
