6:10 Fun (surprise) question

One of the best things about this course was Professor Nevin's responsiveness. I asked a lot of questions to make sure I understood the content of each assignment and Professor Nevin was very responsive to each email and was very accessible.

Professor Nevin has been a great instructor in helping me understand the foundations of integrated marketing communications. He’s very engaging throughout the week via emails anddiscussion posts, and provides thorough feedback on assignments.

I've taken a number of online classes as an undergrad and continuing education student over the years, and I've never had an instructor make him/herself available as readily as Professor Nevin. He responded to emails within hours, connected with my on his lunch hour during one of his busiest weeks at the WVU Foundation when I had a question about classwork, and graded every one of my assignments within 24 hours. In my opinion, he has gone above and beyond my expectations as an online masters student and his background and experience as a marcom professional proved to be an asset in the course.
