In This Course:

– Staff will give good assignment/exam hints.
– The lecturer does not just read off the slides.
-This course HAS a final.
BUT:
– You can NOT do the whole course online.
– The textbook might actually be necessary.
– This course does not give ‘free’ or participation marks.
– Assignments/exams are not necessarily marked fairly.

Overall Comment:

You have to do the readings for the course to get the 20% on the quizzes. And expect to only get about a 3 out of 5 for each unless you have an eidetic memory. But the lecturer is amazing and will help you out massively with assignments, so getting him to read over them before you hand them in is a must. He does mark harshly on language, not just content so edit your assignments as well.
Jory is a good lecturer though, and records all the lectures himself so you can go back and listen again.
