feel confident in my ability to technically design my site."

there's no point if I don't know how to build them!"

to perform as well as a technical student with this module."

Lecturer quality - good and bad
"Lecturer not forceful enough while lecturing."
"The Lecturer is very enthusiastic, helpful and consciencious. Thank
you for a thorough job. One comment, the speed of the lectures could be
"The lecturer was enthusiastic, well prepared, however over simplified
and explained to the nth degree, were it was not necessary as a result
the lectures were sometimes tedious and lost attention from most of
class members, in turn disrupted the others' lecture."
Too general & lack of examples

design in general rather than bing specific to web design"

Inappropriateness of Exam
"I think it should all be continous assessment. I don't think exam is a
good idea, as subject learned is done in practical basis."
"This is the type of subjet that should be just assignment based, it
isn't necessary to have an exam thwere everything is learned by heart
in the run-up to the exam and then forgotten immediately afterwards."
Module not useful
"I didn't learn a lot in this module."
"It was very interesting"
"Module = very interesting and worthwhile"
