Teaching Assistants and Lab Sessions

Messages from assistants

O1’s teaching assistants monitored the progress of selected students (especially: beginner programmers from Aalto’s School of Science) and sent them weekly messages via email. If you received these messages, we’d appreciate your comments on whether they were useful or otherwise meaningful to you. If you didn’t receive such emails, just skip this box.

Further comments on the guidance you received, greetings to the assistants, etc.

Learning and Workload

How much do you feel you learned in O1?

How difficult would you describe O1’s contents as?

Please consider the following info, then comment on O1’s workload:

  • Any five-credit course should take about 137 hours of work for a typical student who has no additional prior experience in the course topic and who reaches a grade of three. Reaching the highest grades may well take more time.
  • In O1, 137 hours means working for more than ten hours per week.

In the light of the above information, assess O1’s workload by selecting one of the options below. (Please note that this question isn’t about whether O1 is lighter or heavier than other courses you are taking or have taken.)
