Comment:
If you can avoid this "prof" please do. He's a disaster, especially online. Lectures are boring and don't help. Slides are just copied from the textbook and make no sense. Assignment descriptions are vague and none of the material is learnable online. If you ever have questions he will rarely answer an email and if he does it's just vague guidance.

Comment:
Worst prof I've ever had at Guelph. Lectures are excruciatingly slow/boring. Never given an interesting lecture, rambles incoherently. Assignment descriptions are vague, frequently changes them, has to add pages full of Q&A from confused students. Totally overwhelmed by this course and the number of assessments for very little %. Haven't learned

Comment:
"You will have spare time for the midterm", final words before a total disaster of a midterm. Nobody finished it. This prof couldn't give a proper lecture if his life depended on it. He does not care about his students at all and laughed at multiple people in lecture who complained about workload. Not just a bad prof, a bad person.

Comment:
Literally does not teach. He always goes over time on lectures, despite not actually saying anything for most of them. He has gotten stuck on the same Powerpoint slide for over an hour because of constantly going off on tangents. Assignments come with no instructions or examples, you're just left to GUESS what he wants.

Comment:
This man is probably the most confused professor I've ever encountered. He was constantly sending out emails updating his assignments because he made mistakes in writing them, one of these updates came after the assignment was due. If you have the option to avoid him, please do.

Comment:
Wineberg isn't exactly as organized as one would hope and he sure could make fewer edits to his assignments (especially when it's the night before the due date) but all in all, he knows what he's teaching. The lectures aren't perfect, nor are his instructions at most times but if you go to him and ask questions, you'll actually understand things

Mark knows his stuff and I really enjoyed his lectures. He is REALLY helpful and nice if you go to his office hours. He is a little disorganized especially his lecture notes as there were lots of typos in them.

I swear this man wrote his assignments at 3 am on a Friday night without even worrying about if they made any sense. Never responded to my email concerns, even after I went to his office hours and he gave me another email. I'm glad CS is a field where you can teach yourself, because that's all I did.

He is not the best lecturer and the assignment instructions were not always clear, however they were designed to prepare us CIS2430 and CIS2520. This is computer science - you can't teach someone how to code in a lecture - people who are complaining about having the teach themselves will not survive the program. Computer Science is not easy.

Comment:
This guys a goof. He drops assignments that have little to no correlation with what he is teaching you in the lectures. You must learn how to do most of the programming yourself, which is difficult for those who don't have much previous experience.

I'm gonna be honest if you know what you're doing you'll probably still fail his assignments, in the last 3 assignments i had witht his guy he made a total of 16 edits all of then within the last 5 days of the due date. He's so unclear about the assignments which need i remind you are worth over 40% of your mark. Plus he won't give extensions.

Mark definitely knows his stuff, it's just the way he is presenting that is awful about his teaching. He spends an entire slide, literally 20 mins on one specific slide and talks about it while no one is paying attention. He then goes on to the other more important slides and skips over them in a couple of minutes, even seconds!

Wineberg is a very kind professor. He is intelligent and knows his stuff. If you are unable to follow him during his lectures be sure to talk to him outside of class, he is very willing to help.

No one can deny it -- he known his stuff. But holy hell is he boring. I'm sitting in class right now, there are exactly 20 people. Class is of 50+. On their laptops: 10 On their phones: 6 Asleep: 1 Paying attention: 3 Ooop, reduce that to 2 people paying attention. Someone just reached for their phone. Awful professor, crazy knowledge

Comment:
Had him a while ago. Not a great presenter (seems kind of nervous, and drones a bit - has one of those voices), but very helpful after class. Rather absentminded. Willing to help, but tends to have "ivory-tower" tendencies, and may not always be aware of the required background for his classes. One-on-one with him is more valuable than class time.

It is a great prof. Explain the details but if you missed something, you can not follow him again. He knows his topic very well (statistics and genetic algorithms).

He is a great prof, he spent alot of time after class helping me, and was always available when I needed assistance. Sometimes he even replied to my emails at 2:00 am! He definitely knows his stuff and his slides are great, very detailed made my life a lot easier. A nice guy.

If you go one on one with him is is an amazing professor. He lacks skills to teach the same way in front of a class but he is still an amazing professor.
