Feedback was given incredibly quick, which is great because you get to see the mistakes your making in real time rather than waiting till the end of the course.
Discussion prompts and interpretation questions integrated into practical assignments helped to synthesize and apply the material.
I think the instructor's knowledge of the subject and frequent contribution/feedback in the weekly discussions were excellent for stimulating further ideas and discussion about the subject. Also, the weekly virtual office hours were a great resource and forum for students to ask questions or gain clarification on specific topics. Finally, the exposure to frequently used programs and tools helped merge the theoretical with the practical.
The instructor's experience in this area was very helpful.
Introduction to and use of appropriate data, websites, and software.
I found the assignments most useful because they were practical and hands on applications of the types of analyses we were doing that week and solidified it in my mind. This professor also put more emphasis on virtual office hours then most other professors I've had and recorded the sessions so that we could watch afterwards if we couldn't make it during the scheduled time.
I give Dr Estrada the highest possible recommendation for a teaching award.
I. He is a real player in the field he is teaching. Despite being heavily involved in active research in his field, he found the time and energy to provide an immersive course. It is obvious that he was fully engaged in making the course as good as possible, and he succeeded.

In addition to the recent form of the field Dr. Estrada provided a historical perspective, which is required for true understanding.
III. In terms of interaction with students Dr. Estrada was fully engaged, and respectful of where each student was
The subject matter is of the utmost importance to current or perspective bioinformatics scientists.
