Funny guy, good discussions, used powerpoints to convey main topics (and avoid having to purchase the textbook). Grades came from online discussions and quizes of the lessons as well as a final project and exam.

Comment:
friendly guy but not a good teacher.. very boring, bad at explaining databasing.. however got A because of open txtbk exams where you could write down your slides in the bk too.. uses sql coding straight from slides and textbk in exams.. helpful to read assigned readings.. team proj will take time and he will drill you with questions on it

Comment:
Get ready to teach yourself. Todd proclaims to never like using more than 10 ppt slides per class, but proceeds to use 40+ slides per class 90% of the time. Speed reads through them all, then you go home and try to interpret them yourself. His multiple choice questions on tests are impossible to get, don't bother trying, just guess.

Comment:
Made the freshman seminar pretty easy and fun to come to class. Some assignments were unclear, but he makes up for it by simply giving you an A anyway. Decent sense of humor and an all-around nice guy. Doesn't like hats in class though.

Database is his hobby. However he knows enough to teach an introductory class well. He has an interesting dry sense of humor. I like him as a profesor. I'd suggest him to anyone, especially considering the other profs for this course.

Comment:
He taught my Freshman Seminar, and he was awesome. I thought it would be hellishly boring, but he made it somewhat interesting. He's a great guy all-around, and I recommend him. He ended every class by saying, "Okay, go out there and do good things."
