Comment:
He does ramble during class but I think students are just use to power points and not as much legit lectures. Just needs to stay on topic a little better. Besides that he is great and you will learn a lot, I took him for Real Time Systems and AI.

Comment:
Dr. Doran is extremely easy in honors courses yet extremely boring. He gives many writing assignments and group projects. He attempts to explain the honors process and courses along with familiarizing students with the campus, but he spends most of his time talking about Mardi Gras and New Orleans.

There is a book, but you don't really need it and tests are relatively easy. AI is a good elective

Had Dr. Doran for AI, Real Time Systems and indirecly for Senior Project. For a non-traditional teacher he really made the classes enjoyable and got you to "think outside the box" and ponder the possibilities within computer science. Great guy and very inspiring teacher.

Classic example of the tenure problem. His entire class consists of a bunch of intermixed stories. Low point for the class is learning where his daughter like eat at.

Easy spoon feeding teacher. Great for entry level I.S. class. Got an easy "A", but he got across the message.

Can't teach whatsoever. Sits and yaks all through class with the same stories year after year. You'll get nothing valuable/informative/ major related! Very biased! Too bad there isn't anyone available to take over his position. About time he retired!!!

Awesome Mentor! The only man I know that can compare computer science to a muffaletta. If you take his class, ask him to say the words Boiling Oil Monkey.
