Very dry material, and a lot of cobbled-together paper work to decipher. Made simple concepts more difficult than they needed to be. Would not recommend, unless you need it.Anonymous, Semester 2, 2015
Content was presented in a disorganised and haphazard order and the lecturer often referred forward to material and then never actually explained it. Assessment was ambiguous and extremely frustrating, and I feel like they deliberately made it that way in an attempt to model a real design project where you have to interact with clients but there was no avenue for interaction and any clarifying questions were just met with 'sorry, we can't do the project for you'. The whole ideology behind the delivery of the subject was out of step - the coordinator did not offer any useful resources or explanations, lectures were more a browsing of a disorganised collection of material and it was extremely unclear what was expected of students. Large modelling tasks made up a disproportionate amount of the exam and the aborted mid semester test, rather than being confined to assignments where careful consideration and justification could be placed into each design decision. Overall, I'd avoid this subject unless you need it. However, there were some saving graces, including Greg Wadley's lectures which were cohesive and enlightening rather than scattered and vague. Also, the content is pretty logical and interesting if you manage to fight your way through the monstrous delivery. If I had the chance, I'd go back and consider attempting to substitute this unit with INFO90002, a graduate level intro to databases by Greg Wadley which I'm sure may have been more academically demanding but at least I would have known what was expected of me, and had a lecturer who wasn't deathly afraid of rigour, mathematics and organisation.Anonymous, Semester 2, 2015
