All Ratings and Reviews for Peter Kollock
Professor Kollock holds a pretty interesting seminar on cyberspace. Using one of the most effective means of education, he allows the students to really have it out on various topics...whether we agreed with each other or not. His style promotes not only healthy discussion, but also an interesting new look at a world most of us have been emerged in as of late. If you are interested in online markets, reputation systems, or online interactive games, try and take one of his classes. Beware that he is so popular, you will probably have trouble enrolling (about double the allowed number of students showed up for our first day of class). Oh, and he is definately approachable during office hours and makes time for students who can not attend them.
Professor Kollock is the BEST professor I have had thus far. He keeps all of his lectures interesting and fun for the class and the readings that he selects are pretty interesting as well. Take a class with him if you can!!!
By far the best soc professor I've had!!! He is passionate, exciting, energetic, and always has intersting things to say. He is modern and knows a lot about his field!!! He also gives the midterm and final as a study guide. FUN FUN FUN CLASS! TAKE ANYTHING HE EVER TEACHES. Its good to see him in office hours too, he is very helpful!
great professor, good class. His lectures coincided with the reading and he covered questions well. His exams were straight forward and his study guides were comprehensive and included ALL possible test questions. He seemed to really care about teaching students life, not just group behavior. He was one of the more caring professors I've encountered.
the most interesting professor i have ever had- mostly because he is very funny (which means a lot because i, myself, am a very funny guy). i actually wanted to go to his class and his funny anecdotes helped me really apply what was taught in class to life. the projects were easy as they required only creativity and his tests were easy if you study, and, for people like me who never read, pretty easy. i loved this guy.
I took Sociology of Cyberspace with Kollock. He truly is an expert in the field and taught this class in a manner that exposed tons of interesting & crazy things taking place in cyberspace. Assigned readings were actually useful and pertinent to class discussions. If you plan on taking this seminar, be prepared to go to class every week...but you'll probably want to! I highly recommend Profesor Kollock; he's a great lecturer and knows exactly what he's talking about since he was a major pioneer in this particular field of study. Don't be worried if you're not overly internet savvy...this class is still a good one to take!
I am a 1992 UCLA graduate with a BA in Sociology. At the time of my attendace at UCLA, there was no such website to rate professors, both good or bad. Therefore, I'd like to now somehow show my gratitude for the wonderful experience I had in Peter Kollack's classes. Mr. Kollack is not only an interesting, energetic teacher, but he's also a great person. That's all that needs to be said, because that's what's most important. A professor should be genuinely interested in their students learning,and Mr. Kollack does because he's a good human being. I'll never forget my experience as a student in his class.
Professor Kollock is one of the best professors that I have ever had. He not only teaches a very interesting subject, he does all he can to make it even more interesting. He genuinely cares about what students understand and he really wants each and every student to come away learning something from his class. If all professors were half as good as he is, then college would be a much better place to learn and enjoy your time.
Great lecturer! Interesting class!
the best professor around. too bad i can't take more classes from him because i graduated! if you want to learn something that will apply to most people's lives, then take prof kollock. If you have dreams of becoming an entrepreneur, then this is the initial step that you have to take to learn about various aspects of it. what better source than learning from an experienced 'veteran' in the field! his lectures are also very very lively, i wish we had class everyday instead of 2 days a week. you're going to have to look pretty hard to find a better professor than kollock here at ucla because they are rare to come by and most professors don't deal with real life aspects.
