8. Please evaluate the lectures in general.

- The aim of some lectures felt somewhat fuzzy and unclear. The lecturer has a lot of knowledge, but has a hard time communicating it.»
- A bit slow but interesting.»
- To far away from the practical labs. Give more physical examples.»
- The lectures were not very interesting, and sometimes I felt like I could read them at home.»
- Weak»
- Mediocre !»
- The teacher could seem to be unserious sometimes. When teaching, he should not be sitting down and looking at his own laptop. The tutors where good, and had the knowledge. »
- too much practice without enough theory before.»

- Not very challenging but very adequate for an introduction lesson on physical computing.»
- Good but too easy.»
- Good progression of difficulty. Got to test a lot of things before the mini-projects, which was a good thing.»
- Awesome. But the "Blog" part is too much informal, maybe make it more explicit by giving a deadline/ instructions on what to write.»
- Good, but more structure in the guidelines not only links to other web-pages.»
- The lab session was helpful, and it allowed us to get into practice. »
- Okay»
- Good, really good !»
- good assistance, enough metireal. but perhaps so big group.4 students share one suite of resouces(not only metireal but also knowledge) sometimes as long as one of us understand or finish the task teacher would sign on the paper. I mean,lab didn"t check does everyone understand of not.»

11. Evaluate the Mika Satomi"s lecture and Lab.

- Fun lab, little time to finish!»
- great»
- Not bad, but missing a more accurate goal.»
- I think the hacking of the game controller was a bit fuzzy. Because there was no schematics and we experienced some weird errors, but except form that, it was quite inspirational lecture and lab.»

13. Please evaluate the Home assignments, their function and format

- The were not so useful, they didn"t have anything to be learned»
- They were okay, not really needed perhaps.»
- Didn"t really see any point in those..»

- Sometimes there was too much material to read after the labs pdf is posted on the website. except from that they were quite good. »
- Good idea but too easy.»
- OK. Good to make you sit down, read and write about things. However, it felt a bit weird to not receive any feedback - made you not care about them that much. Like the write-by-yourself-format though.»
- I think the last one was a bit pointless, but otherwise it"s a good way to be sure someone has the sufficient knowledge do proceed with the next labs/classes.»
- They have seem a little bit random.»
- They were a way to let me read the texts(because I"m always lazy reading everything)»
- pretty useful!»
- kinda boring»
- I don"t know the function or home assignments. I think it is unnecessary. We don"t get any feedback what so ever, feels like a waste of time. »

- great»
- Great way of sharing»
- It was nice to see other groups projects, what they did during the labs, since sometimes you can be busy with your lab or project and missed the chance to see what other groups are doing.»
- Really good idea!»
- Interesting to see what the others have come up with or done. However, didn"t visit it any time other than when posting something myself. And don"t use Wordpress! Awful UI...»
- Interesting in a way, but too much informal.»
- A good way to present the work. But maybe it has to be a little bit more »
- it was quite good as other groups" ideas could inspire me.»
- no one reads it :(»
- really good, but the blog page is kinda boring»
- I don"t know the function of the blog. I think it is weird to have to put things on it.»

- Really good»
- They are really good.»
- Good with resources, but a little crowded..»
- The resources are really good, pity the Studios are separated by a corridor!»
- great»
- They could be bigger»
- I think more information can be given on what kind of material is on the studio , especially for developing component based or technology based prototypes. For the workshop, I think there can be small tutorials on how to use the tools in the workshop especially for designing the casing of the products and also the workshop is quite messy and it"s hard to find what you are looking for. Optionally, In the lab, there can be also more coat hangers since most the time, our coats mopped the floors (because of those extra-small chairs :)»
- Really good! 5 stars!»
- Nothing to complain about, except that other people would "hog" equipment, and didn"t clean up after themselves.»
- Nice, but too crowded and most of the time dirty.»
- To small when everyone is working there.»
- they were very good»
- awesome!»
- really good studios»
- The resources should be updated, as many of them are broken.»
- something like color were dry, which means need to be changed.»
