- Especially on the labs» (At most 15 hours/week)
- The labs, that was said to be easy and fun, took way to much time due to that they where unclear and contained errors. They could have been fun, but now they where time consuming, frustration and not fun at all. The deadlines where on strange times, for example in de middle of the Easter holidays, Valborg and Ascension holidays (Kristi himmelfärdshelgen).» (At least 35 hours/week)

- I would not recommend this course to other students as it is today.» (Poor)
- Teaching can eb improved.» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- - laboratories exercises - lectures held by specialits »
- can"t think of anything»
- The lecturer and the teachhing assistant, they are very kind and always ready to answer our questions»
- Labs but with less guidance for matlab parts»
- the labs and the distribution of final grades»
- The content of the course, or say scope.»
- hand-ins should be done in the lab to access TA directly »
- slides are very good and course contents are enough.»
- The labs were good»
- i think the forced assignment done by the course administration is not correct because if someone would like to work on their own is better than having a partner that only delays the work progress.»
- there hands-on exercises»
- the labs are interesting»
- The laboratory were very useful, hence need to be preserved.»
- the labs»
- If the labs are redone so that they actually are fun and understandable, I think that they can be kept.»
- Labs, Guest Lectures and points for the lectures.»
- The labs :-)»
- The labs.»
- Labs»
- official content»
- Projects»
- Laboratory exercises»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- speak louder»
- The projects, they are not so challenging to me»
- Lecture content should be review»
- maybe more detailed demonstration or more difficult labs»
- The labs may be more helpful for studying.»
- Since labs help us to understand the materials of this course deeply, more labs are recommended.»
- Points should not be handed out for attending lectures. For some people there are scheduling clashes and they must be intrusted to decide themselves which lectures benefit them the most without risking to lose points. That"s also true regardless of the reason for not attending the lectures.»
- i have no idea»
- more explanation in some labs, In the 4rth and 1st»
- I can"t say what needs to be changed, but there is something, that needs to be changed. Because even by giving one point to attend the class, many opt out after the break sessions. I suggest to enrol students those are from the related field, due to the fact that many from NDS and CS don"t understand the basic of this course. May be the course lectures can be made more interesting, and a strict concern over the students who enrol to this course.»
- The lecturers, the lecturer (not the guest lecturer) and the labs instructions. It would also be nice to have one course book that covers the course and not just bits and pieces.»
- Way of teaching. I am sorry to comment about teaching though I don"t have personal experience. Though we gain one point for attending lectures many students have not turned up, even though if they come they will leave just after giving their attendence to teacher. I felt myself the lectures very boring and concepts are not that clear.»
- I think everything goes well»
- Lecture content tos ome extent»
- This course is like if someone is truck driver and makes group with some good guy. Even he can pass this course. There should be indivisual assesment of every group member.»
- give more attention to the communication part of the course-ip networks. make lecture slides much much better, they are written lousy and almost useless. too many different course literature books»
- Feedbacks about project mistakes Group Setting»
- exam»

16. Additional comments

- - the laboratory memos were not clear enough sometimes»
- a very good course»
- I didn"t get much from teacher»
- there could be more practical labs. visiting of pioneer companies help us to improve our knowledge about practical aspects of multimedia communications.»
- some of the exercise step can better be more detailed and some of the common mistakes students likely to make can be noticed ahead of time»
- Please redo this course. The idea is good and it has the potential, but as it is now, it is a bad course.»
- The course will be attactive if a study tour/ company visit be added.»
- The labs are very good and would like to preserve them. The teacher should give consultation time for asking questions since most of the time we saw her busy and not open to questions. She should hear our questions patiently and answer them rather than catching some key words and answering them.»
- Students should be shown their assignments before written exam so that if there is some mistake in checking then that should be corrected.»
- nice content, but it needs to be modified.»
