“I was the first person from India to enroll for the BSc (Hons) in Computing from the University of Portsmouth course (which was in April 2000).

I would like to take this opportunity to THANK all the Facilitators for the expert guidance, knowledge and help imparted to us students. It was a GREAT experience!”

"This was my very first experience of e-learning, and it went great. I have found Sir Lakshman Shimoga as one of the very best teachers for even though it was sort of distance-learning, but the way he taught and helped us, it completely erased the feeling of not having a teacher around, physically. He is very cooperative, helpful and among all his all time availability for his students is his marvellous aspect of his personality."

"Dear K Preethi,

I greatly appreciate your patience and good guidance throughout the course. Moreover, thank you for provide clear explanations on our queries being raised. It is not easy for working adults like us to allocate time to log in to the discussion room. And I feel it is more difficult for you to scan through all queries being raised by each and individual students. Definitely, we have to praise you for making such a good effort.

Once again, thank you for your kind understanding.

Warmest regards, Joseph Lay"

I am truly impressed and encouraged by the genuine concern and support you have shown towards the students throughout this module. It was really a pleasant learning experience with you.

Please do keep it up for I am sure with your dedication style and approach, more students will be able to benefit from your professional teachings and guidance in the days to come.

If all goes well, I shall be graduating this May, 2001 so please do wish me lots of luck in finding a better job prospect and future with the UOP online degree! And I shall always remember the wonderful experience I had in e-learning with you and the other fellow course-mates.

There was a lot of support from your side for the DB Design module. We could get detailed notes, mock test papers, answers, exam papers, exam revision, very quick responses to queries.
