- Var på alla gruppövningar utom en. Var på en del föreläsningar i början av kursen, blev dock färre ju mer tiden gick. Även om jag kunde uppleva att föreläsningarna var av lite varierande kvalitet var nog den främsta anledningen fokus på en annan svårare kurs jag läste parallellt.» (50%)

- Its actually kind of unneccesary. It could have been shorter perhaps? It´,s good to get an overview but in the same time this material is not used nowadays. Maybe in 10 years and then something else will be used i guess.» (Fair)
- Bad lecturer. Stopped going to the lectures due to difficulties understanding what he said and difficulties understanding the slides as they were often very cluttered.» (Fair)
- I hoped there would be a lot more focus on design patterns and architecture.» (Fair)
- Sometimes hard to understand what Rogardt said.» (Adequate)
- I would like to have more focus on design patterns and refactoring. And overall the course should cover less material. But thats really just my opinion and others may disagree. I think the project was very good, well organized and a good way to learn the concepts. The subject however (taxi-project), even though surely a very suitable project because everyone knows the domain farely well, should be changed to something more inspiring and fun I think! It lasts 6 weeks.» (Adequate)
- Quite nice but could improve.» (Adequate)
- The course is very interesting.» (Good)
- it was intresting. made you hungry for more developing!» (Good)
- The area of software engineering has become interesting again (after the HCI course).» (Good)
- Really good course! interesting with a real good examinator» (Good)
- Roghardt is a really good teacher and he put a lot of effort to make a really good course» (Excellent)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Correcting home assignments.»
- Home assignments»
- the project»
- weakly groupassignment»
- The project, taxi of another don"t matter but it was a good practice and a natural way to apply all techniques as we have learned.»
- Philipp Rümmer»
- Homeass and project is actually a good form. »
- Everything»
- The home- and project assignments»
- Philipp Rümmer, who is a very good tutor and teacher.»
- The project and home assignment.»
- Project work»
- The home assignments and the project»
- - interaction on lectures - project - home assignments»
- the home assignments»
- home assigments»
- The project.»
- Exercises»
- Project assignment»
- Shorter exam, better handledare till next year. The asian guy was not good at all. He spoke very poorly english, couldn"t follow us in our review group discussion, he had problems to understand english. He also wasn"t very good for helping. It seemed like he didn"t know much himself. The poorly spoken english is also a very huge problem for both us and him.»
- Project, project hours.»
- The assignments.»
- Grupparbetet och hemuppgifterna var mycket givande.»
- The project assignment»
- The project»
- Rogardt Heldal»
- The project and group meetings with TA»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Slides beforehand!!! Smaller groups and more scheduled time for the group project.»
- Rogardt (well his pronunciation at least).»
- Teacher speaking better english»
- there should be assigned time slots on the schedule for the project, there is very hard to find times that 8 ppl can eork together..»
- Less intense home assignments, the correction often took too much valuable time from the group meeting. If they were less intense you could require a shorter time limit, and thus giving us a chance for correcting them before the meeting.»
- I don"t know»
- Lighten the workload, you dont need both home assignments and the project.»
- The teachers language skills»
- Focus on whats important, not some academical mumbo jumbo like what OCL is. The course book states the following: "Unless there is a compelling practical reason to require people to learn and use the OCL, keep things simple and use natural language. Although I"m sure there are real and useful applications, I"ve never seen a project that used OCL, even though I visit many clients and projects." Thus the following question is in the right place: WHY ON EARTH are we learning OCL? It"s obviously something we will NEVER USE in the industry. If it was just mentioned in a lecture or so it would be OK but to demand that we learn it and having it included in the examination is just bull shit.»
- Remove the parts about patterns and frameworks. This belongs to another course.»
- An exam that takes up morse parts of the course. »
- Week assignments could be incorporated into the project work to reduce the workload.»
- more focus on how to make good designs! not just show how to represent designs with the help of diagrams..»
- the web page could need a face lift»
- Change the domain and subject of the project.»
- More project meetings with a Tutor.»
- Home Assignment»
- Better english speaking handledare.»
- A shorter exam which doesn"t only just test the skil of drawing sequenze diagrams. Question 3 took me four pages of sequenze diagrams to draw - and I didn"t have time to finish.»
- Mindre grupper till projektet än i år, i gruppen jag var med i var vi runt 8 personer. Mycket lätt hänt att medlemmar kände att de var överflödiga och gjorde annat som inte hade med kursen att göra. Hemuppgifterna bör på något sätt struktureras om. Antingen att ett bra resultat kan ge bonuspoäng på tentamen, eller att ett dåligt resultat kan ge retur. Incitatment för att inte bara kasta ihop något utan försök att faktiskt lära sig saknades ibland sedan det var lätt hänt att man upplevde att det inte spelade någon större roll.»
- The exam. Make it shorter so that we can finish the whole exam in time...»
- Some of the supervisors on the group meeting..»
- Some practical implementation of the taxi sys would be nice. LIke the IT02-04 did.»
- assistant» (den här kommentaren har blivit redigerad i efterhand)

16. Additional comments

- "Müüdel"»
- Seeing that the taxi project covered most if not all of the course, to me the home assignment seemed more of a way of deepening into a area. So making them optional and instead adding a possibility of a few bonus points for the exam would only seem fair.»
- I understand why whe read the course even if it is many moments which are really unmotivated (like interaction diagram - who will need them, who will understand them?). Perhaps this course could be shrinked to a little moment in some other course. like 1,5 p lab or something»
- Comments for future students: don"t attend the lectures, read the book instead. The book is great, the lectures are not.»
- Some of the tutors had very little knowledge or couldn"t speak english very well and therefore couldn"t help the groups as much as wanted.»
- Sometimes very hard to understand Rogardt Heldal even harder to understand Phu H. Phung more feedback on the project turnins each week»
- As many are sceptical about the actucal benefit of taking the time to do this kind of modelling I think it should be emphasized even more when and why to use each concept. I think you did that too some extent but it could be done more. I myself have used some of the concepts in an pre-study I made for a company in the clinical research area during taking this course and it helped me alot. It made me really get a concrete view of their process and concepts and facilitated the communication with the client.»
- Very good course, keep the good work up! Opened my eyes for continuous courses and UML in general.»
