Learning the different programs aided my ability to represent my designs.
Learning of the computer applications taught in this class will allow me to more effectively develop and communicate my design ideas in the future.
Learning Rhino and Maya were very helpful because they were programs that I did not know and will most likely be useful in the work area
Developing project representation in computer programs Photoshop, Rhino, and Maya.
exercise of Maya animation and Rhino modeling
i thought the material was very valuable but hard to process
Camera Animation, rendering compositions, and sunlight animation
the introduction to new computer programs (I understand that it is expected that we had been introduced to these programs prior to this course - but for many of us this was not the case)

26. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He has enough knowledge about the course and helps students a lot for better understanding. class schedule was well-organized and was clear from the beginning.
His enthusiasm and pleasant and approachable manner.
Teaching the material at a good pace, and accomodating the class in helping us understand the daily lectures.
He was patient with our questions, had the TA help people individually as he continued teaching so as not to get behind. His thorough knowledge and understanding of the material allowed for quick fixes
His throurogh knowledge of the subject and other related subjects.
He is very knowledgable and is always willing to help
He is ready to listen and assist if the student has a problem with specific area of the subject matter.
He responses to the questions very quickly even outside of class or office hours.
very down to earth who know a lot about computer tecnology, easy to talk to very helpful, maybe he expects too much from the class, i feel that i learned a lot but i had a hard time too much stuff to be able to catch up
27. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
The wording of some of the power point definitions were difficult to understand.
We had a lot of classes that were repeats
Sometimes he went through the material a little too quickly as though we knew it already.
The volume of info needed to digest
During the lectures, he does have the tendency to move through the material at a very fast pace. It helps, though, that he reviews the material the next class.
N/A
He has some hard time understanding students question.
none
28. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
If power points were changed to be more easily understood, might be able to get more out of the lectures and successfully make a lasting connection between lectures and the software applications we learn.
It would be nice to learn BIM programs such as Revit which are more relevent and desirable in the actual architecture/construction field and would be help us more in studio
They need better internet if we are required to download info in class.
I wish that grades would be available through out the course, so that we can track how we are doing and how we need to adjust our work.
Slow down slightly when going through new commands in applications. Often, I would miss a single command or step and be lost through the class period.
All seemed great to me. I do not have anything to add.
more pdf tutorials showing each step... there are many steps, usually minute, using commands in many different ways that are sometimes hard to find, or easy to miss. PDFs would make it easier to prepare for and follow class. Write out better when and what material is expected from the in class exercises.
He should have maintain his own pace. I understand that some of the students had hard time understanding the software, but the lecture was way to slow for most of the students.
i had a hard time with the group in the final project, the leader wasn't a leader and one of the group members wanted to take over, and he did, our work was based on his approval he made me change a lot of my work and her work, forgetting it is a group and a team work, which missed up the final presentation for us, even though he is very good student better than me, but he changed the power point and it didn't work well.he told me i don't have to speak at all in the presentation since i had no sleep for two days and before the presentation, he told me to start, which i wasn't prepared and didn't know what to say.maybe i should have been more firm but due to the heavy work load i didn't care anymore. i think maybe professor park should organize the groups, it is too much work for one person to do, but maybe if we were guided though the process or even met with the T.A like the second project which i enjoyed and learned way more, some members would understand the meaning of being a team and putting a good equal effort to make it work instead of putting each other down and compete individually were it should be a group competition.

34. My overall evaluation of this course is...
the course was very helpful in improving design communication skills and knowledge, the instructor is knowledgeable about the course as well.
Good class, would recommend it.
Well taught, comprehensive
Great class-want to take more from this instructor
Great class, learn invaluable techniques in terms of new applications and ways to represent design projects.
A
Excellent!
good but a bit hard which is understandable at this level
very good introduction to some very useful tools
35. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
Needs more time for subject to be absorbed. Do a project using one technology only rather than 3.
Clear statement/examples of what's expected.
maybe should consider teaching BIM programs
Like I said better internet. Maybe slightly slower pace in class.
N/A
It could continue into a new course - new course dedicated to Maya program.
better group organization by the professor or have an individual time with each group to know more about the final project like studio. other than that i think that the class it very well organized and i gained a lot from it the tests and projects were fair
see other comments below
36. Other comments:
THe TA did not always respond to e-mail
Thank you for a great semester!!
All was excellent.
i think professor park is a great professor, i enjoyed him being my teacher in previous classes and now thanks
having on line class notes on all the concepts covered would be useful - at times we were guided through procedures, but I found it difficult to follow the work on computer and write notes at the same time. When I tried to replicate the processes, I found I could not
Thank you for pushing me. Thank you for adjusting your expectations of the class to our abilities and skill level. I really appreciated that!

10. Which aspects of the course were most valuable?
Learning the necessary computer programs that is needed in the field of architecture.
Learning computer applications in architecture.
All the aspects of this course were valuable but the most important was learning all three architecture computer programs we learned.
everything that we did.
using auto cad and rhino
Learning the different programs and the different aspects and benefits of each.
All aspects of this course were valuable to me. I entered the class uncomfortable with using any computer programs and always doing everything by hand but left the class with great understanding and skills as well as confidence in using the programs in the future.
in class tutorials
Lab time
Understanding how to apply my imagination into a computer application so that other can have a visual of my ideas.
Projects really helped understand the basics and techniques of software programs.
The computer application. Very Hands on
auto cad rhino
Learning the computer programs such as sketchup, Rhino and autocad
Learning the basics such as SketchUp. I also liked the use of AutoCAD and Rhino.
The most valuable aspect I got from this class was the use of the different programs that I need to know to be successful in my occupation.
the projects and the lectures. the time spent in labs really helped
The problem solving skills, working with new technology, and working with others were most valuable to me.
lectures
Learning the computer applications for arch
I learned many new techniques that i wish i learned in previous years.
the computer skills and applications used
The one-on-one tutorials done during lecture.
Learning how to use programs that are vital to an architects career
all from digital to physical model building...
Utilizing the resources that are available for us for future work. This included the laser cutter. That was an extremely beneficial tool that I will use for the rest of my life. Also the 3D printer was very valuable. I enjoy the aspect of a physical object derived from a computer.
11. Which aspects of the course were least valuable?
none
None.
none.
deadlines are way too short
amount of material covered in such a short time
Stopping the whole class to answer stupid questions from people who didn't pay attention
n/a
nothing the class was great
lectures about the uses of programs
I thought it was very difficult and unnecessary to print all those expensive cubes, we could have just designed them on the computer and saved a lot of money
I wished we were able to learn Revit. It seems more common than Rhino to other architecture firms.
There was no least valuable aspect to this course, all things we learned is valuable.
Having the two sections meet and then having, us, section two move all of their things to another room.
take home assignments
None, I will use everything I have learned in this course at some time in the future.
difficulty with applications
The take-home exercises. They should challenge me into thinking of different ways to build them instead of reiterating what was already done in class.
spending as much time as we did on sketchup
none
I didn't much enjoy the lectures. I understand that they deepened our understanding of the overall process and concept of Computer aided design, but i felt it may have wasted time.

26. What did you find most valuable and helpful about the instructor?
He was very helpful when myself or anyone got stuck while working with a computer program.
His knowledge of a lot of computer applications in architecture.
Professor Park had a lot of knowledge on all the programs we learned her was definitely an expert at all three.
He knows how to use the softwares.
His TA was helpful and willing to answer our question in the middle of the night
His knowledge about the material and that he was willing to make sure everyone understood. He didn't punish those that went ahead, or those that fell behind.
patience with the students
He is very willing to help
Always around Architecture building, and available to ask questions and receive feedback.
He went through tutorials very thoroughly and effectively.
He was always there for the students. Even offered to teach during the weekend if you didnt understand the program. Great teacher.
knows what he is doing
his willingness to spend extra time to help
Not only is Professor Park a very good and efficient instructor, but he is also a nice and genuine person. He helped many of us who needed help, even though he was very busy with other tasks. He also stopped to help those during lecture classes.
He was very knowledgeable, he was very open to answer your questions and very helpful.
the information talked about during lectures
He would put in the extra time on the weekends to make sure we were on schedule and help us with the content.
giving clear lectures and helping students one-on-one
He really knows these programs like the back of his hand.
Knowledgable
His enthusiasm made it easier to learn and stay intrested
his knowledge is great, understands the technology well, not always easy to talk to though
He was always ready to help and explain (and repeat) how to do certain commands.
His extensive knowledge of architectural programs and integrating them into design projects that often required us to use fabrication machines.
organization..
Always willing to help. very knowledgeable in the realm of computers. Twice he made time for an out of class lecture that was tremendously helpful.
27. What did you find least valuable and helpful about the instructor?
None
Nothing.
teachings are too fast
nothing
n/a
It was difficult to understand him sometimes.
nothing
nothing
his strong accent was difficult to understand sometimes
He did not have any negatives; his knowledge was all very valuable and helpful.
It was a little difficult to meet up with him during the school day.
communication
For some reason, students werent attentive when hes talking in class
He sometimes covered really easy basic material that seemed to be a waist of time.
na
I felt that the way he was teaching was on a need-to-know basis instead of giving us a general overview of how to use all the programs.
Some lectures did run a little longer or repeated information.
I do appreciate sketch-up, but i feel like we spent the most time on it and i'll probably use it the least.
28. Please list your suggestions for improving the course and/or the instructor's teaching style and methods.
None
None.
extend the deadlines
More time on each program if possible. Maybe not learn sketchup. Need more time to get a better grasp on the program, rather than just the very basics.
this course should be a two semester period.
This is a computer class. It should be focused around learning how to use a program and therefore, we should be graded based on how we've learned to use the program. We should NOT be graded on the design of our projects as much as our demonstration of knowledge of a certain program. Also, sketchup is relatively useless and I feel that we shouldn't have spent so much time on it. I would rather have spent more time learning rhino 3D.
Nothing needs to be changed.
nothing. great class. the only thing was that the class was very fast paced to learn 3 programs in one semester. didnt really understand the reason to learn sketch-up. Horrible program.
while he teaches sometimes he goes too fast and is hard to follow
The class was well managed and very informative, the class did seem short, and felt like there was more to be learned.
The only problem I had was with the Final Quiz. We would have been better prepared for it if we knew what kind of questions we were going to asked of us. I felt that there was a lot to retain in a short amount of time. We covered all of the questions that were on the test, but very briefly.
emphasize the deadlines
More difficult projects early in the semester
na
If we had had more in-class exercises showing us how to do basic things and eventually build up into more complicated demands, it would have helped me broaden my knowledge of the programs. It would have also been helpful if once a week we were challenged to discover a new command and explain it to the class.
i would recommend taking the scale of the final bus stop model to 1/2"=1'. the details captured in 2/3"=1' can be easily captured in 1/2"=1' and open the model up to a wider range of materials and fabrication methods.
I want to learn photoshop! i need to began my portfolio and i'm worried without the Adobe aspect, i won't have as strong a portfolio

34. My overall evaluation of this course is...
It was a helpful course and I learned a lot and it will help me when it comes to expressing my ideas using a computer.
Excellent
My overall evaluation of this course is that i think this course is very good.
It was very good and helpful.
good but could be better
good introduction to computer applications
This should strictly be a technical class. There is no point in pushing it as a design class when everyone is preoccupied with learning the program.
This course is great for learning all types of computer applications for the field of study.
This course was very helpful in learning and understanding software programs used in the architecture field.
Great course Park was great in teaching and the TA's were on point. Always there to help and lend a helpful hand
good course.
good
Great class.
This class was very helpful, I learned a lot more than I expected. It will defiantly help me in my future. The Instructor was very knowledgeable, and very helpful. The TA was very knowledgeable and helpful as well. The TA was able to meet and give any other instructions that we needed. I wish there was a higher class like this, taught by the same instructor and TA, but only more challenging material.
good, very informative
This course was challenging and pushed us with the deadlines. I had to be on it, meeting weekly with my T.A. I learned a lot and would recommend this class to others.
great
Neccesary for architectural students,
Good course, and was one of my favorite thus far
very good, tas were good and well educated in computer apps. wish i was.
I was slightly disappointed. I thought I would end the semester with a very thorough knowledge of all programs but instead I was pushed towards that direction and had to rely on myself to try and figure things out.
Amazing keep it going.... Love the integration of design projects
very good
Great course, wish there was more, because at this day and age, computer design is paramount, not for the actual design of form, but for the ability of fabrication and reprsentation. Professor Park was a very helpful, understanding, and compassionate teacher.
35. State in two or three sentences how this course could be improved.
This course could be improved by allowing more time to finish the final project.
None.
extend the deadline
again we moved through a lot of material in a short time
Get rid of the 3/4" = 1' final model. It's a waste of material and we simply don't have time for that. A 1/4 scale model would've been just as effective.
Perhaps getting discounts on applications. (Rhino)
take out sketch-up
course is well planned, nothing comes to mind for improvement
smaller classes
The class was well managed and very informative, the class did seem short, and felt like there was more to be learned.
I think that this class could be improved if students could remain in their own sections and the professor went in between the two classes to give the main lecture. It was a hassle and a danger trying to move every class to another class in the middle of the session.
teaching assistants to slow down and make sure each student understands the exercises/lectures
Higher difficulty to keep interest. More technical training. More availability.
more classes to learn computers in a more personal and slow pace.
More in-class exercises; interactive problems.
Lectures could be a little more clear
less lecture, less sketch-up, more model building, add photoshop.
36. Other comments:
It was good that this class got T.A.'s to help Professor Park. Todd (my T.A.) was extremely helpful and gave a lot of input when it came to our final project. He was available outside of class hours and was willing to help whenever we needed help.
Nonce
We often push for being "green" at UH manoa, and I find it ironic that every architecture studio class (including this one)assigns projects that requires the students to waste an ungodly amount of money and materials to complete.
n/a
I would've wanted to know my grades as soon as possible after the assignments were turned in. Also, I would've wanted to learn Revit.
Terrific Class
keep deadlines as they are
