Please keep in mind that I took this class during the COVID-19 pandemic, so everything was online. Professor Dale is absolutely incredible. Dale is hands down one of the best professors I have ever had and I truly wish I was able to have taken this course in person. Lectures were all pre-recorded and you could watch it on your own time. There was a very simple, short quiz every week from weeks 1 to 7, and he only took the 6 highest scores. There were readings given every week and professor goes over all of them pretty thoroughly in his lectures. You have to do only 2 labs of your choice (from the 5 options he gives), and all the labs are super easy and will not take a lot of time. There is also a final project that's around 4 pages double-spaced, and is also very do-able. Watch the lectures and put in some effort in your assignments and you will get an A. Professor is so willing to help and always is inviting students to come to his office hours for help, or even just to chat with him about things. I highly recommend this course and Professor Dale!

Professor Dale is an absolute gem. I've never met a more caring teacher and even though the quarter was online he still managed to connect with his students in such personable ways. The class consists of 7 quizzes (very easy), 2 labs (also very easy and you can pick from 5 different ones), and a final project (4 pages) which expands on one of the previous labs. He wants his students to succeed and is very accessible for questions or concerns. Very chill grader and overall just a kind hearted individual. Please take this class with him if you can! You will not regret it. I wasn't very interested in the material, but it was so manageable and he tries to make it as engaging as possible. I wish all professors were like Dale. He even extended the deadline on our final project b/c he knew we were all going through tough times. I love this man and you will too!

I really can’t say enough good things about Professor Dale. He was so kind, and so understanding about taking the class online during COVID-19 and made every effort possible to reduce our stress. The class consisted of online quizzes which he took the best 5 out of 7, one lab (he reduced the requirement from 2) and a final project. He ultimately made the final project optional because of the current situation with the protests, but it was just an extension of one of the labs and he was super flexible about the topic we chose because he really wanted us to pick a topic that was relevant to us and our career interests. His lectures were pretty engaging even for someone like me who isn’t super into this area of comm, and he recorded them in advance so we could watch them on our own time. I would highly recommended taking a class with Dale if you can, he’s probably the best professor I’ve had at UCLA.
