He has a lot of knowledge, but has no idea how to teach. He expects you to know stuff without him explaining.

He know's a lot. Does not know how to explain his knowledge to his students... not learned as much as I wished. 80% of the course was copy and paste the example program into your own and save it( he encouraged this 100% of the time)

The SHSM in info tech is awesome. Kudos to Payne for getting XNA and C# when his Java courses had to be canned.

Payne really wants you to be ready for university or college. Doesn't give a damn about your excuses for not giving a damn. It's kind of good.

Didn't learn a thing - he asked ME questions. Doesn't teach at all, but lets you hand stuff back in after he tells you what's wrong and you correct it... easy, easy, but soooo boring.

He is for the most part oblivious, people at the back of the class bring in their usb data sticks and have the same program with no work

I dont like how he shuts his eyes when he talks to you.. makes him seem very smug and narcasistic.. he is good guy though.. needs to make his programming classes more entertaining for the kids..

His courses are self taught, you can cheat on tests using the web(he allows it). He doesn't cheat and people play online games during class. He has no control.

Mr. Payne really puts his all into creating the assignments for our split grade 11 and 12 class. He teaches us in preparation for University and that's hard.
