Past Student Feedback
- Professor Buzan did a great job with the discussion participation. I really appreciated
that she brought in additional relevant topics to the threads each week. With
social media changing so quickly I think this is a wonderful addition to the
typical online discussion.
- The most helpful part was the feedback from Kristen Buzan. I think she has done
the best job of any of my professors to date in providing valuable feedback.
- I loved the "Learning through Doing" part of this course. Building a social media
plan and having feedback through each step was wonderful. I never felt overwhelmed
with the assignment. I felt as though I had time to work through my issues
and thoughts before moving onto the next step. The professor offered great
feedback and was extremely attentive concerning my understanding and learning
throughout the course. I would recommend her to any of my cohort. This was
my favorite class, hands down!
