- We had two lectures which I learnt from, the rest were mostly "inspiration-lectures" with youtube clips or feedback sessions with vague feedback and explanations that differed from the task goals.» (Small extent)

- Information relating to the same thing often spread out over several pages in the course page at random. Briefs often poorly and ambiguously worded.» (Very badly)
- Changes from individual to group hand-ins, changes in tasks, multiple hand-ins during the same time periods (with extreme work-loads)» (Very badly)
- You didn"t know when or where the deadlines, lectures etc. should take place. The worst course ever and I don"t even know where to start especially when it comes to the administration. It"s embarrassing that a course on Chalmers can be this badly administrated and ecxecuted. No usable feedback at all were given during the course.» (Very badly)
- This course was really not well organized, with schedule, deadlines, exercises briefs, missing information, conflicting information.» (Very badly)
- there was lots of confusion regarding assignments and deadlines» (Very badly)
- a lot of miscommunication with the teachers. the main teacher is not present many times» (Rather badly)
- the schedule always change, and sometimes not reasonalble. Web page cannot catch the changes sometime.» (Rather badly)
- At some times there were different information regarding the same thing at different places on the course page. Also, most of the tasks were vague, which to some extent can be motivated by the need of being unspecific to not narrow down design possibilities. Although I sometimes felt this was not the only reason. Also some of the task descriptions were even contradictory.» (Rather badly)

- Almost every assignment time consumption underestimated.» (Too high)
- It was crazy much to do. One tasks brief was uploaded on a sunday and was supposed to take (I think) about 10 hours, and the deadline was on monday afternoon, and then we don"t even got the chance to work on it on that monday (according to the schedule). And all the tasks took almost dubbel the time than they said. » (Too high)

- Worst course I"ve read so far at any univerity, it could have been so good because of the subject but it was a total disaster» (Poor)
- having no feedback will make this course pointless.» (Poor)
- The way the Tasks were structured became very time monopolizing throughout the course. Since they had short deadlines and long hours you basically HAD to work on them during that time, meaning that pretty much all weekends were lost. I do not mind working on weekends, but I DO mind when I am FORCED to do so, and not given the option to prioritize the other course or other things in my life that I do not have the time for during week days. Since the tasks were all explicitly graded you could not down-prioritize them either. Especially damning were the 30 hr task the week before the exam week (though I am pretty sure we spent 40 - 50 hours on it and still rushed the final screens and the presentation). I am relatively sure that that task made me fail my other course since it only left me two days to prepare for it.» (Fair)
- very messy with several assignments at the same time» (Fair)
- Not receiving feedback after handing-in the tasks made it hard to set how to work, making the learning outcome poor. The misorganization and the excessive workload made the course even more painful.» (Fair)
- » (Fair)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The large amount of group works.»
- The topic of the final task was fun to work on, though ~one week was way too short.»
- Jury for the final task but this should be made much earlier in the course and explained what it is. (We got no info about what the jury-thing would be)»
- Nothing»
- projects»
- The lectures were good and informative.»
- I liked that the exam was divided in several exercises during the course, rather than having a big exam in the end. It was also good to have teachers available for help.»
- Everything»
- The willingness to answer questions.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Give information about tasks earlier so you can plan the week before it begins.»
- Make an overview of what pages you can use in the course web page. Decide from the start explicitly what information should be displayed where and when the pages will be updated. Completely rethink the task workflow/workload.»
- Workload and lectures»
- Better information about weekly tasks. »
- The poor structure and communication. The confusing tasks whose instructions where sometimes changed without updating the briefs. Information in multiple places. Uneven workload and poor communication with parallel courses.»
- Structure, feedback, a reliable schedule, clear instructions, information about grades and credits. I"m sad to say this but pretty much everything needs to change except for Kristina and the name of the course. »
- Everything»
- feedback in time and better schedule»
- The organization of tasks. Communication between teachers»
- The task descriptions were vague. Also, there were too many tasks. Better to have fewer tasks, where students have time to put more effort into each task instead, and they should be followed with proper feedback before the examination week.»
- Organization, the way lectures and tasks are scheduled, the goal for each task should be clear and the credits for each of these should be proportioned to the task. Final task had less credits than many others. Schedule should be organized to avoid making people work every weekend. Feedback on tasks should be prompt.»
- A liitle better planning on te deadlines and on the schedule in general»
- I did not recieve feedback on more than 70% of my hand ins, so I did not know how to improve my grade or how I was doing during the course»
- Feedback for the exercises faster. We need the feedback for reflecting on our work.»

16. Additional comments

- The whole course felt like it was planned on the go...»
- restructure assignments»
- The course did not deliver what it promised in terms of feedback etc...»
- There are extreamly many complaints on this course but I don"t really think that all this is Asim"s fault. Or did he even considered to ask anyone for help???»
- teacher should be showup more frequent, and the requirements should be more clear and well-structured.»
