- Johan is very help full but Morten has not shown any interest in this course, what so ever. He has been constantly staring at his computer and didn"t even listen to our presentations. This was most obvious when he failed to book a room in Äran and took another teachers class room and when this teacher arrived and started accusing the group presenting for taking his room Morten didn"t even notice, thus sitting in the front row. It took him about 1 minute to figure out what was happening. I have never experienced such lack of interest in students ever. Why is he even attending? » (Some extent)
- Electronics. The lab teachers were absolutely great.» (Large extent)

- Most of the time he was writing emails on his laptop instead of participate in the presentations that we had to do every week.» (I disagree completely)
- He is totally uninterested» (I disagree completely)
- Read above» (I agree partly)

14. Regarding Course presentation environment. How could the teaching environment be improved? Explain briefly.

- Well, the course homepage could be up to date so that we didnt had to read all the information for the past year.»
- During seminars only two groups are actively participated in the discussion , I think the final exam should be divided into sub parts related to each week"s seminar and everyone in the class should write a small essay about that particular week"s assigned papers in every week. So that people do not lose their interest in the lessons and they don"t have to write the home exam from scratch at the end.»
- Torg 3 is not a good place to hold lectures»
- First of Morten needs to rethink his role as a teacher and the school needs to have a discussion with him. Other than that, the course was good.»

15. What do you think of the format of the supervision, by course assistants?

- The assitants is great! Let Farshid be the teacher of this course next year.»
- they are great »
- Course assistants was good»
- Very good»
- They made a great effort»

- They didnt really had anything to do with what we were expected to do.» (Small extent)
- Lots of outdated uninteresting papers to read, not many new ones with current directions.» (Small extent)

17. What did you think of the format of the seminars - while one gropu of approx. five people were presenting, and another one were questioning? Do you see another way that would be better for a class?

- Divide up in smaller groups would make the learning better.»
- I think it is a good way to let students get used to how seminars are»
- Very outdated and uninterresting articles. Most of them were 10 years or older. The articles offered no or very little help to the projects. »
- It did not work. Only the two groups that were actively involved in presenting and asking read the papers. The rest just sat the time off! »
- No, this was done fine.»
- not efficient at all yes, fewer people, fewer number of papers to discuss, and more time for each paper 70 people is TOO many!!! »
- Smaller groups! No real discussion arose when in full class.»

18. How would you rank the active participation of the teacher during seminars and supervision? (on a scale of 1 to 10)

- 1, if there was possible to give an negative number on this one I would have done that. Agian, obviously it was more important for him to write emails on his laptop. And interupt the students while they were talking.»
- 6. I think the teacher should have given us more feedback correlating our project and the ubiquitous concept»
- 1. I wouldn"t call staring at a laptop for "participating".»
- 1 (lowest)»
- Morten 1 Others 9 »

19. How would you rank the active participation of the course assistants during seminars and supervision? (on a scale of 1 to 10)

- 10 very good»
- 6-7 especially Martin - the lab manager»

- Since the the course webpage was ripped from last year it want really up to date.» (Very badly)
- The page was and is still very poorly updated!» (Very badly)
- The web page was just last years page copied complete with old deadlines. No information about when the information was updated or old. The home exam was up from the start but the teacher said he would update it - he never did and I could have begun with them a lot earlier instead of doing it over christmas.» (Very badly)
- They mixed up 2009 and 2008 all the time. You never knew what dates where correct. Sometimes the links pointed at 09 and they where broken, sometimes they pointed at 09 and where broken. Unacceptable. » (Very badly)
- The webpage, it was not updated from last year, and the teacher just used it as outdated as it was. » (Very badly)

- A lot to do with the project so I didn"t have much time left for the reading seminars» (High)
- A full-scale project, several articles on 5-20 pages each every week, 3 exercises (of which the third one was entirely unnecessary and just took time from the project work), a big project report, and home exam which require you to read hundreds of uninteresting old articles. That is the equivalent of two 7.5 point courses squeezed into one!» (Too high)
- WAY TOO HIGH, » (Too high)

28. Was the time specified for each of the lectures/literature seminars/project work well-proportioned (well-distributed)?

- no, not really.»
- Yes pretty good.»
- No.»

- Unorganized and not focused.» (Poor)
- The project work was fun and I learned a lot, but the articles and lecture seminaries have learn me nothing, just given me more extra work and made me stressed.» (Fair)
- It"s an interesting course and we got to do some really interesting projects. BUT, the poor management on the webpage and Mortens lack of interest was really annoying and unacceptable. Bookings where "lost", pages missing, dates incorrect, times where changed with little notice and the frustration among the students over this was high.» (Adequate)

32. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- uhm, nothing.»
- Project»
- The project work!»
- The projectwork. »
- The course is really good, keep it as is.»
- the lab manager, Martin Farshid, the lab assistant »

33. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The teacher..»
- Seminars" structure»
- Take away or decrement the number of articles! 1-2 per week, maximum! Instead of articles the seminaries could be about different ongoing projects and researches in the Ubiquitous field, which would have been a lot more interesting and actually made me listen and learn something. If the seminaries wouldn"t have been compulsory nobody would had come to listen. »
- The reading seminars»
- I don"t think I need to state this again.»
- webpage, lecturer"s motivation and poor dedication, expectations, »

34. Additional comments

- The lectures and the projects were barely relevant. Your email, containing the link to this course evaluation page, was regarded as Junk Mail (Spam). I, by chance, found it there. »
