- have not taken it jet..» (?)
- It is hard to understand if the course is focused on the mathematics / physics of wave loads or if its a more knowledge / theory based course. The lectures indicates that the focus is the mathematics but the exam was entirely study-questions. » (I don"t know/have not been examined yet)

- no need to explain all values in the formula. only show the formulas are needed» (Poor)
- The learning sessions are slow and focused on formulas but it is not connected to any kind of physics or understanding.» (Poor)
- The objectiv of the lectures needs to be clearer and explain the background of the formulas, it is not necessery to littratury read the formula but an explanation of where from and why it is there would be good. Shortly mention what is required that the student should be able to do would is also a suggestion on what might be aproved to next year.» (Poor)
- The information from the lectures did not represent the content of the course enough» (Poor)
- Its very hard to follow the lectures when there only is huge amounts of equations on power point» (Poor)
- Alot of equations and no explanations... the study questions should have been taking up on the lectures instead » (Fair)
- The learning sessions have been hard to follow. I have been reading the litterature parallelly without getting much out the lectures, especially those sessions with a lot of equations presented. The understanding has better in the end of the course, mainly due to the study questions handed out, but also due less complexity of the material presented.» (Fair)

- The description was good, but the program was very bad. It crashed several times, lost data and could not get it back.» (Poor)
- The softwere is not very good, hard to use and works badly. I would rather to it in MatLab» (Poor)
- To much collecting numbers and low understanding, Havent get the grade or feedback on the assignment yet» (Fair)
- I think that the assignment it self was pretty good. The octopus software however is terrible and most of the time spent on the project was getting the software to run not the actual learning or method. I think that an assignment in MATLAB would be more suitable, most of the students are very proficient in MATLAB and all the focus could have gone to understanding the mathematics / statistics / method of the assignment, off course the assigments would have to be a little bit smaller , maybe just one ship and 6 different headning or something like that. » (Fair)
- I think the assignment was good, but I also think it was a little to time-consuming. I would have liked to spend more time to understand what has been presented in class and less time with octopus. After a certain time, we had the knowledge required, and the rest of the time was spent on repeating, repeating and repeating. I like the idea, just reduce it a little. » (Good)
- Over all I think it is a good assignment, bad luck with the softward updates. A litle uncorreated with the lecures and unstructured.» (Good)
- Good, could be better, perhaps a larger project or at least better introduction to octopus and better guidance» (Good)

- Felt like it was only equations and not why we should learn the subject. Gave no overview of the subject.» (Small extent)
- on the lectures there are just equations, not very clear description of what is important to understand» (Small extent)
- It feels like the lectures is about one thing and the exam about another» (Small extent)
- The teaching is too general. Seakeeping course is full of equation. So I think if it is possible, the derivation would better be in the blackboard.» (Some extent)
- There was hard to see the coupling between the lectures and the theoryquestions. The theoryquestions were very good so try to intergrate them more in the lectures» (Some extent)

- The lecture notes lackes a "red line" which make i hard to follow.» (Large extent)
- good litterature and questions, it would have been better if we got the questions earlier» (Large extent)
- Primarily the study questions. I think the course litterature is good, not to extensive and "reader-friendly". I have used them a lot in combination with the study questions» (Great extent)
- The literature is really good.» (Great extent)

- Got the the theory questions reading week 5, at the same time as the project. The information was given late.» (Very badly)
- I would say rather well if it wasn"t for the late arivel of the study questions and lack of formula sheet.» (Rather badly)
- To much paper» (Rather well)
- No problem except that the study questions were handed out way too late.» (Rather well)
- It took too long time before we received the formula sheet for the exam. The octopus tutorial was not uploaded on the web page» (Rather well)
- Very good. Clearly lay out, and easy to follow» (Very well)

- Low but too much variations.» (Low)

- Important topic but the course is not good.» (Poor)
- Its an advanced subject and the structure of the course is quite good. But, it can not be learned out via power point, its impossible to folow the lectures when there is only equations on the slides, there has to be more text and i would like to se it written on the board instead. » (Poor)
- I think it has improved much in the end of the course. I understand that it is a topic which can be hard to distribute, and therefore it should be more ways to adapt the information» (Adequate)
- but if you conect the lectures to the questions more and have a more practical approach on the lectures it would be much better» (Adequate)

18. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- SSPA visit Bridge Simulator»
- The lectures, more contents why we are doing things and better examples»
- Study visit to SSPA, bridge simlulator, exam study questions»
- the assignment»
- Bridge simulator lab.»
- The external visits/activities. Octopus, in smaller portions.»
- bridge simulation»
- The bridge simulator, the visit to SSPA»
- Studdy visit to SSPA, the division between introduction and theory in the lectures.»
- Study questions, but they should be handed out much earlier and there should be more of them. As it is right now you can not find the answers in the slides so they have to be included there aswell.»
- The ship seaway assignment is really good.»
- The OCTOPUS assignment, bet maybe some adjustment to make it more clear at very first.»
- questions and litterature»

19. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Octopus project, the software was so bad it was difficult to asses it.»
- The bridge simulation»
- The exam study questions should be handed out much earlier, so that one could know what to focus on when reading through the material and what to focus on when attenting class. »
- the power point slides should have less formula, and more explanation of the problems and what that is to be calculated»
- The study questions should be handed out at the corresponding learning session (or uploaded on ping pong), not 4 weeks later. The learning session should focus on the same things as the study questions which is understanding.»
- create alternative ways to teach out the subject. like the study questions, should be handed out and used parallelly with the lectures.»
- pressentation of motioin equations.»
- the lectures»
- I don"t think many students have the capacity to focus on equations when presented in powerpoint slides, for more than maybe 10 minutes.»
- the lectures and how you teach the equations etc. as previously mentioned, more study questions devided by learning session and perhaps more calculating questions since you seem to think this is an important part of the course.»
- The lecture should be changed. More derivation should be done in the blackborad so that we will have a better understand. And »
- conect the lectures to the questions more and have a more practical approach on the lectures »

20. Additional comments

- I feel like, in the way you teach the course it is to hard so you have compensated with a to easy exam. I learned a lot from the study questions but i could have learned more if there were more of them. As it is now all the students have only learned the study questions which was more than enough to pass the exam.»
