- Most of the time they do not load properlly.» (Small extent)

Poor»0 0%
Fair»0 0%
Adequate»0 0%
Good»3 30%
Excellent»7 70%

Genomsnitt: 4.7

- Very interesting course, would like to learn more about game design.» (Excellent)
- although assignments felt a bit vague sometimes. and having the design document baked together with a process description felt.. unnecessarily complicating! » (Excellent)

16. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Try to get the same guest lecturer that talked about educational games and game culture from a genus perspective.»
- the game jam as an elective assignment. and the third assignment as well!»
- The teacher, the Game Jam assignment, the boardgame nights! The whole course as it is, actually.»
- Prototyping»
- Last Assignment that is Assignment 4 points should be less than 40.»
- board game nights»

17. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I would like to see the genus perspective as it"s own lecture and not only as a guest lecture.»
- the format of dates. Explicit guidelines on the format of assignment 3d. or splitting design document and process description into two assignments.»
- Maybe lower the writing workload...»
- Faster updates on webpage, make at least one supervision hour mandatory»
- More emphasize on making prototypes of games, as it is a praticle work and all students love to do this»
- I was a bit deceived by the fact that the project did not output something concrete (there is the playtest, but it"s not as rewarding). I know that it is not a course about game programming/crafting, but still...»

18. Additional comments

- Since this is a game design masters there should be more courses evolving around game design. Level design for instance...»
- i love games, how could i not love this course?»
- over all its a very good course for me atleast»
