Feedback
Technical issues with delivery of course
Recommendation
This year there were ongoing issues with the technical delivery of the course this semester, largely owing to the fact that lectures were delivered via zoom; technical issues would not manifest until the start of the meeting/tutorial. This could easily be fixed by reverting to the previous delivery method where tutorials were directly linked and recorded by TASAC.
Action Taken
