Muddy Card Evaluation
Muddy card evaluation 2021-09-08
Hi, thanks for the muddy cards. We got 82 answers, which is a good number. The comments below are just a summary.
The lectures seem to work fairly well, but of course I will bear your comments in mind for the rest of the course. Many comments are about the abundance of information in the lectures, and that it is hard to know what to focus on and an overview. It might be helpful to consult the list of concepts that I have compiled at the bottom of the lecture page. I also provide a word file if you would like to restructure the material yourselves.
There were also many requests for more examples, I guess that it is for the UML parts. My advice right now is to consult UML-diagrams.org, linked from the homepage.
From several comments I see that you have noticed the need of further studies and thinking about the stuff brought up at lectures to understand and solve the lecture exercises and reaching the course goals. I know that this initially hard to get used to, and please use the opportunity to use the discussion forum in Lisam. There are many students who ask all sorts of questions and I try to answer as soon as possible, also during weekends. It is a good idea to browse the topics and take part of the discussions. You are more than welcome to participate by giving your own views of the problem. Students can often be cleverer to help each other than the teacher.
I agree with the comment that this is a theory course and to be of value the knowledge must be applied in projects and labs. For D and U it will take a while. Be patient.
For the project we notice that you would like more help in the beginning of the project, for example, the roles. Here we would like to emphasize the importance of that you create both the software, the processes, and the organization yourselves. We believe that experience will help you a lot in both future studies and work, even though the burden is high in the beginning.
The labs seem to run well. Some comments of the disconnection from the theory, that’s true for the first lab. That is intended as a gentle introduction of something you will face further on when deploying systems at customer sites.
Thanks for the comments and good luck with the studies.
