Genomsnitt: 3.72 (bidrar till totalt genomsnitt/jämförelseindex)

- Didnt go» (?)
- High pace with a lot of math. Could be a bit more fundamental in the beginning.» (Fair)
- Sometimes the lectures were too fast-paced.» (Adequate)
- a lot of information in a short time» (Good)
- Ulf knows what he is talking about but sometimes the explanations could be a bit unclear, mostly because they were hurried. It would be great if he could take his time when explaining the problems, and when drawing on the blackboard. Start by explaining the background, why the solution exists and then how it works. This probably requires more lecture time or less material to go through, but would be better in my opinion.» (Good)

- No lecture notes, because no material is allowed during the exam.» (Did not use them)
- The slides were messy and poorly organized, lacking continuity and clear section division. Though they were very exhaustive and covered most of what was important in the course.» (Somewhat useful)
- It was hard to use the slides as study reference.» (Somewhat useful)
- Some slides were not understandable at all if you had not attended the corresponding lecture. Good illustrations.» (Good to have them)
- One funny thing is that when I was repeating at the end of the course, I got "aha" moments (for understanding how things worked or were related) even after 5 times of reading. The slides were very good.» (Very useful)

- We had to show each of the 6 labs to an assistant, only available from 5p.m to 7p.m. Everybody goes there at the same time, which means that we have to wait (one time around 1h30!). For me I didn"t find the tutorials/labs very useful.» (Poor)
- Better than nothing but I did not learn that much from them. I think that I would have learned much more if the instructions clearly stated WHAT we were supposed to do and why and did not give the code to do it. Instead of the other way around as it is now. It"s too easy to just copy and paste the given code and not learn anything.» (Adequate)
- I"d like to have had tutorials about intersection/collision detection as well as hierarchies, though I understand that that might have been too many tutorials.» (Adequate)
- A bit to much handholding to be really intresting and usefull. Also what i blearned in the tutorials did not feel very useful at the exam.» (Adequate)
- The tutorials should be a bit harder, you almost followed a written script when doing them. In the first ones, you needed to create a second and third triangle by yourself, which made you understand what you were doing and which technique that was better an so on. The rest of the tutorials should have an easy part (follow a script) and then a part where you do things by yourself that will make you get stuck, think about things and then understanding them (the last tutorial was this experience, but it would have been better if it was divided in parts that is pasted into the other tutorials).» (Adequate)
- A lot of copy paste from lab guidelines without learning much.» (Adequate)
- needs more time slots earlier in the days» (Good)
- Good to know how to implement theory too.» (Good)
- This is the first course were we used C++ and I think the provided code can be improved to be more idiomatic.» (Good)
- Fast and easy way to learn OpenGL. The project part however (not the ray-tracing one) was too easy, nothing new was really added.» (Good)
- They were fun to do.» (Good)
- It"s really hard to find a balance between giving too simple assignments (which doesn"t give anything), and "copy paste" assignments (in which you only follow instuctions and don"t need to use any knowledge at all). These labs were an example of how you can balance it perfectly» (Excellent)

- i didn"t read it, so no right to say.» (Small extent)
- The book was good, I believe that it"s a book that I will keep for a long time. However, the slides and lectures together were adequate (in combination). However, I would have found the book necessary if I would have missed a lecture since I don"t believe that the slides would have been enough if I wouldn"t have had my own notes.» (Some extent)
- Mainly used the slides» (Some extent)
- amazing book» (Great extent)

- 2nd edition. Got it for free from a friend» (yes)
- Borrowed from library but did not read» (no)
- But I will.» (no)
- I didn"t buy the text book, because it is way to much expensive. The internet already provides really good materials about Computer Graphics, which is a lot more useful than having to carry out a text book.» (no)
- A bit too expensive» (no)
- ebook version.» (no)

- I would prefer if the schedule was there from the beginning with dates and subjects for every lecture. Now the schedule was updated after the lecture, but it would be nice to be able to look at the material beforehand even if it is not the final material.» (Rather well)
- Course website is a bit unstructured.» (Rather well)

- Ulf always answered my questions after lectures.» (Rather good)
- One of the only good points about the tutorials was that it was possible to directly ask questions and get an answer directly.» (Rather good)
- Bad during labs because of massive waiting but good during lectures» (Rather good)
- I found it really easy to ask during a break (lecture) or during a tutorial, and I got good answers and explanations.» (Very good)
- Although at some occasion the lab-assistant"s were not present at one specified time.» (Very good)

- It was kind of what you made of it. If you didn"t study during the course, you didn"t get as much knowledge from the tutorials as if you had studied (since you pasted code almost by random and couldn"t really think about it since you didn"t understand what should be going on). Also, then you needed to study at the end and then understood what you did during the tutorials and what difference it makes to do some computations in the main file or the computations in the vertex shader and so on.» (Adequate)

- It was kind of what you made of it, how much you studied during the course or not (if not, you needed to study more at the end).» (Slightly demanding)
- The labs are difficult to do without help. But the exam is easy (but good)» (Quite demanding)
- I felt that the multitude of topics visited meant it was hard to learn enogth about them all, even though the individual subjects was not that complicated.» (Quite demanding)
- Depended on the last assignment» (Quite demanding)

- Not my biggest interest which might have an impact on my grade» (Adequate)
- The lectures was a lot of fun.» (Good)

19. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- the lectures with good demos»
- Book»
- Everything, this course is very well made»
- The tutorials with slight changes (see below).»
- The fulltime and halftime wrap-up slides. The stories about Ulf"s personal experience with the computer graphics field persons.»
- The lectures, slides, book and the fact that there are tutorials (however, the could be a bit better).»
- tutorials are interesting»
- th final project»
- The lectures where we went through all the content again»
- Mudcards from the lecturer! :)»
- Everything»

20. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- I think the problem with the course is that it covers a too wide area so you learn very little or almost nothing about very many thing. It would be better to focus more deeply some techniques. I understand this might be hard to do as this is an introductory course but maybe you should consider for instance making it into 2 courses, one with focus on real time rendering and one with focus one ray-tracing and other similar techniques. »
- Too hard exam!!»
- the tutorials should be looked over in my opinion. The course home page could be clearer (some things are a bit hard to find). The example exam and the older exams could look more like the exam actually will look like. »
- Better visualizations explaining i.e. the intersections etc, must be easier to learn that way.»
- Nothing»
- The tutorials felt a bit to much copy, paste and forget. Maybe emphasise questioning about what has been done more. Maybe drop the part about different curv-algorithms, they felt somewhat out of place and there are already plenty of subjects.»
- Better organized course website. Update the tutorial descriptions.»
- Maybe try to change the older contents a bit and update it to new research fields. Add a lecture and describe what"s happening right now in the field and try to motivate us why we also should continue to research computer graphics.»
- The tutorials should be a bit trickier/harder (as described above, there should be a script to follow as now but then a more un-guided part where you have to think a lot more, for example by doing tutorial 6 part by part during the other tutorials instead of at a couple of weeks at the end).»
- Put some credits on real labs, and not basic OpenGL tutorials. That could really be more interesting.»
- lecture time is too early»
- Easier access of old exams would be highly appreciated»
- the lectures, they should be focused on the actual work, and not mathematical theory only. For example we were always been asked to write C# code where we where only being taught maths...»
- Maybe more lectures in order to go more slowly/carefully through the content More excercises should be available during the course to prepare ourselves for the exam»

21. Additional comments

- Fun!»
- The focus of the course should shift from lighting, to actual 3d game development»
