This course provided the content in a clear and concise format. However, in order for participants to better retain the information, the instructor could highlight the most important items or give a summary of the information or personal examples.

The course was very informative, but covered a large amount of material. I would recommend the person taking the course break it up into sections, as it is a lot of material to cover all at one time.

A dry course but the information is easily understood and the power points show the most relevant data though they could be shortened somewhat for clarity.

The course is pretty straightforward. It's ethics, so it's going to be dry, but the instructor does a great job of outlining the important areas.

The presentation was very vanilla and boring. More real life examples would give better grasp of real world ethics applications

Presenter was very dull. Would be better if he provided some examples or additional comments vs. just reading the text to us.

A little boring. Instructor could have included some examples and enthusiasm instead of just reading from the slides.

I think he could have talked faster and less monotone, but overall provided enough relevant information.

Presenter was a bit on the monotone side. Would like to have some "spice" in the presentation

This may be the worst course I've ever taken. I'd need to think back... no, it's the worst.

Course content was a bit boring so the presenter could have sound more enthused.
