- Kinda good organization, but too much broken electronics.»
- the studio was less organized and little less equipped> The components should be organized with English titles as they are also used by foreign students. »

- Two lab assistants were not enough since help could not been found elsewhere, not in the book or in any lectures (since there were only two).» (Rather poor)
- The tutors were very good. However it was hard for them to have the time to help everyone. I would reckommend that you have an examinator that really knows the subject so the students feel comfortably in asking him. I dont think that was the case, unfortynately, in this course.» (Rather good)
- But since we only had reading as information source, to much time got spent on asking basic questions.» (Rather good)

15. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- plan the literatures for each exercise, before the exercise student should have an overview »
- The course book.»
- The intelligent textile»
- I can see why the course is needed, in order to learn how to build hardware and such. However, if you dont have any previous programming or hardware knowledge it might be hard to pass.»
- The exercises with intelligent textiles»
- labs once a week»
- The part which was about working with intelligent components »
- The idea with using exercises instead of exam. Was a good way of learning by doing.»
- All the practical exercises!»

16. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The lab handouts and a more structured course.»
- The lab instructions»
- 1. More basic understanding for programming and hardware 2. Start off with the textile excercises. 3. Make sure the excerceses work BEFORE handing them out to the studens. A good question to be asked is, Is it doable with in the time limits of the course.»
- A teacher that could help me learn the things I"m supposed to learn.»
- working with only one type of micro controller should be changed to different types of micro controller»
- Pretty much everything. Prepare the labs better, in order to not waste students" time.»
- the level of difficulty for some tasks should be adjusted»
- There has be lectures for this course The tutors should be always accessible and also they should know what the work is about.Our tutors weren"t that much helpful because they didn"t know what the work is about and what the real goal of this work is. The goal of each exercise has to be clarified.Most of the times we have done something which was not the intended goal .»
- Clearer descriptions for the exercises, send out the questions in good time before next weeks exercises. Be clear on how many points that give which grade.»
- Better information on what we were supposed to do. More lectures, better introduction to the different electronics we were supposed to use, and how we were allowed to solve the problems.»
- Try out the laborations before handing them out...»

17. Additional comments

- It"s sort of understandable that the course was disorganized since it was a first time it was held, but major changes need to be made until next year»
- No. »
- This course is a very good step to improve the basic idea of student in the field of electronics but should be much more organized »
- I learnt a lot about how to handle electronics and micro processors in the course, which is great!»
