- Grading very unclear. Lack of feedback on assignments and projects throughout the course. » (No, not at all)
- assessing individual"s peformance in forms of group project is always difficult. still i hope the homework assignment will supplement it.» (To some extent)
- classic paper exams are just burdens for students I think. The way "physical computing" assesses grades is very good.» (Yes, definitely)

Teaching and course administration

6. What is your opinion about the lectures?

Frågan är kopplad till lärare: Johan Sandsjö»

- The lectures held by the lecturer did not say much of interest and one might as well have read the uninformative slides at home. The lectures held by the lab assistants were much better.»
- They were good. Comprehensive and on a good level.»
- I found the lectures about electrical components very useful»
- Good»
- Not good! Not relevant enough»
- our lecturer was very sincear with his duty as well as moral support.. he always guide us in clear way and repeat that thing as we ask..»
- Good.»
- For me, most lectures were not relly that interesting, since I already knew most of the things discussed.»
- the lecture time was quite short. if it could be more extensive it would probably solves many problems during the work. also i believe it should be represented more clearly.»
- Poor. Unclear purpose. »
- The lectures are the weakness of this course. If the lecturer were more prepared they would feel rewarding.»
- I think more can be expected from students at a master level. They had too much of a "kindergarten" feeling.»
- the lectures are a little bit too general. anyway we are supposed to read more materials after class.»
- not too deep, not too shallow, exactly how it is supposed to be.»
- Pretty good.»
- The lectures were based on Introduction to each of the Lab tasks.. From that point of view it was very good.. »
- it"s fine.»

7. What is your opinion about the labs?

Frågan är kopplad till lärare: Johan Sandsjö»

- Good/fun»
- In the beginning, it was too much just following the instructions and it was easy to pass them without actually understanding the tasks.»
- Very good»
- They where a little to straightforward and easy. You didn"t have to think at all to pass them, simply follow exact instructions.»
- Good! Good colaboration and they were practical»
- yea lab were super.. i have learn alot there in labs doing different tasks and projects .»
- Very good.»
- The labs were really fun, but they didn"t give much space for free thought and own solutions. Most of the time was just connect things like this, put this code in and see what happens.»
- laboratory time was great. inasmuch as we had the opportunity to face technical problems during practical learning. and just learn how to deal with them during designing.»
- Ok. »
- I thought they were great for learning. »
- They could be made harder. Now it was very much just copying and pasting code»
- Very nice! However the exercises could have involved some more thinking on the students part. Now it was more of a "Do this and observe the result"-approach»
- it"s really helpful and interesting. hope we had more time spent in the studio.»
- i think the number of the labs is just right»
- enjoyable.»
- Mostly interesting and enjoyable.»
- The labs were quite basic but as mentioned early in the course it was because people lacked experience.»
- The labs were very exciting in terms of getting used to different types of equipments.. It helped me a lot to understand and actually use a lot of equipments that I never used before..»
- very interesting, group craft work rolls!»

8. What is your opinion about the home assignments?

Frågan är kopplad till lärare: Johan Sandsjö»

- Good»
- They seemed very easy, but I don"t actually know since we had no feedback at all. That was very bad. You didn"t know if it was enough or not.»
- Some kind of feedback would be good. Since there was no reaction to them (no reference to them in the lecture before or after, no feedback about failing/passing etc), it seemed like they were rather unimportant. »
- It was hard to know how elaborate you should be on them.»
- Easy, very easy really»
- home assignment are the part of our slybus but its good for feedback from us.that how much we concentrate on course.»
- Good.»
- You always forgot them! But I guess they weren"t too bad.»
- how assignments were good. but it would be better if they were more extensive.»
- Ok, but feedback was lacking. »
- Somewhat pointless sometimes due to the fact that you needed to rewrite in your own words definitions. But I guess the purpose of them was to have us read those definitions in the first place.»
- In general pretty good.»
- Good idea, but they need to provide more feedback. I still don"t know if mine were good or bad.»
- they were more about theories. i think it"s a good supplement to practical works in the studio. only wish we get some feedbacks.»
- i was thinking when to get the feedback after we handing the home assignments?»
- not very hard, not very easy, helps you to keep track with lectures.»
- Some good, some less interesting.»
- They helped me get a deeper knowledge about certain topics»
- They were pretty good.. Those helped a lot to improve my writing skills..»
- The answers formed a very essential basis for a good understanding of the goal of the course.»

9. What is your opinion about the controllers and instruments workshop?

Frågan är kopplad till lärare: Johan Sandsjö»

- Good»
- Very good, but the grouping was a little chaotic»
- Great »
- good»
- All controllers and instruments into the workshop working properly and most of then were brand new.»
- Very good.»
- That was a nice project. A little to short for my taste.»
- i believe the controller workshop was one of the best part and also interesting one.»
- Ok. »
- Loved it. Fun projects.»
- Very nice»
- interesting and useful. the time is a little bit short.»
- Good»
- absolutely good.»
- Good.»
- It was a fun workshop»
- It was great because I get to know their operations and how they can be used for different types of prototype design..»
- that"s fun! I enjoyed it very much.»

10. What is your opinion about the mini projects?

Frågan är kopplad till lärare: Johan Sandsjö»

- It was good. Keep this.»
- Good, but chaotic grouping. Maybe organize it just a little. Suggestions: * Write a list of possible projects on the whiteboard or projector * Let people who already have a group go away or go to the side/back. »
- Great»
- Good! Much freedom»
- i think mini projects are most important part of the course. with doing mini project we buitd our confidence that we can do any thing.»
- Very good.»
- Great project! Again, perhaps a little to short, and you almost had to use Arduino (I don"t really lika Arduino). But otherwise it was a great project, since you got to really develop something.»
- they were good. but it would be better if the groups could be organized based on similar interests. otherwise it is just about preparing a mini project to receive a grade.»
- Good. »
- I believe it should have been stressed more the idea of having a design rationale and not only a fun result.»
- Very nice»
- Really nice. However I would like to emphasize that the focus on design seems off. I know that many students in thes course were ID-students but there are also many who are not. And a course in physical computing should not judge by the design of the project, but more of how well the project was executed in comparison to the project idea.»
- although i"m not totally satisfied with our project (we could have done something more fancy), i like it. and the teacher and the lab assitants are really helpful.»
- Good»
- A good way to use one"s creativity. Exactly good.»
- It was nice to get to do something a bit more "real" with the knowledge aquired during the course.»
- I was fun.. Our group worked pretty hard day and night to establish the concept through design, electronics and mechanics. We developed a very good relationship between us and it was the most important outcome of the mini project I think.»
- It is a very open minded fun project, I enjoyed every single step of it. as well as the final presentation, the work from the other groups were also very interesting. Our group had cooperated well, which had just made the project more interesting.»

11. What is your opinion about the studios?

Frågan är kopplad till lärare: Johan Sandsjö»

- A bit confusing what we were allowed to use and not.»
- Overall good, but * the workshop should be cleaned and organized * the workshop is missing a lot of tools and material * there is no good working bench in the workshop! The tables there are terrible for sawing, painting, cutting etc! * Labels in English»
- Great»
- good»
- studios are very net and clear and maintain.»
- Very good.»
- The electronic components should be sorted out better. Also, there should be some possibility to do some surface mounted circuitboards.»
- they were good. and we already had nearly all the components and instruments that we needed for our projects.»
- Good. »
- Great. We really didn"t have to order anything for our project as everything was already in there.»
- They work fine»
- Really nice rooms with lots of useful stuff. It feels good to know that you are actually given quite a lot of resources and is exspected to do something good with them.»
- it"s good, but need more material storage..»
- Time to time its hard to find what you are looking for. Good but also can be optimized.»
- OK.»
- The studios are great place to work in as it possesses all the facilities and equipments required to design and develop your desired prototype..»
- Good! »

- I didn"t really get the idea with the blog though... And please put the Home Assignment pdf:s in some link page and not in the schedule... » (Rather well)
- I still haven"t really grasped the whole concept behind the course blog. The home assignments should be listed on a page with course material, not in the schedule. Maybe list the deadlines in the schedule, but have a separate page for the files so that they are easy to find. » (Rather well)
- The only thing I can complain about was that you somehow always missed the home assignements.» (Very well)
- I like that you"re using google calendar, it worked nice» (Very well)
- love the blogs. really interesting and inspiring.» (Very well)
