20-21 Sem A take呢科
主要課程構成同之前Comment一樣,基本上其實就係上堂唔chur不過少悶(如果你只係為左grade讀嘅話會幾悶,不過對拍片或者UXUI有興趣嘅話真係不妨試試)Ryan係幾Informal嘅Professor黎,你有問題可以隨便問,唔明可以無限book佢時間問咁,所以其實就爛唔爛grade睇你有幾主動confirm自己份功課嘅方向。
至於工作量真心係大嘅,拍片還好,但UXUI project就絕對唔可以拖,如果唔係會即刻爛grade,有可靠隊友係最重要的,如果唔係臨尾先分家就絕對做死你(無錯我就係臨交功課前一個星期同隊友分家自己做,結果通左3晚幾頂先勉強做得完個Project)之後仲要準備好powerpoint present。
最後就係report,內容同前面師兄講嘅一樣,但我讀嗰時就係500-1000/one 做兩個,基本上都係上網睇然後吹,問題不大同埋Deadline你真係好趕好忙做唔切嘅話你可以同Ryan講,交代清楚嘅話佢會比多幾日你做同唔扣分。
結論係,我就係嗰D會email炸爆佢問問題嘅學生,而我覺得佢係真係有心機教同會體諒學生嘅Professor,只不過最重要係要準時交功課同早D開始,如果無隊友單機讀嘅話你就要有心理準備要一個人做曬D project咁樣。

DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE!!! I took in 2019/20 sem A. For a GE from Area 1, the scope is insane. We can come up with a cure for cancer and this man would still say "oh it is not enough".. his expectations are very high and not in the sense that it would do you any good to come up with something brilliant..

100% stay away because in the beginning it will seem nice and fun but his slides during class are misleading.. his 'teaching' material is just example of other student work from the past. Totally mislead.

Whole coursework was in 3 parts - a short film, a project and some exhibition review essay writing. The short film part is okay, you can make a 4-6 min video which is fun and he will be fine with it. But the project is a nightmare..so totally not worth it..

(Took it 20/21 Sem A)
DO NOT TAKE THIS COURSE
It heavily relies on group projects and basically has no ties to the content that he teaches.
Because all the projects are so open-ended, the grades he gives are very subjective. If he doesn't understand your explanations or doesn't personally like it he'll give you a bad grade.
Plus I also go a feeling that he tends to favor local students and has a harder time communicating in English, which contributes to him not being able to understand you ideas.
Again. Do not take his course. Especially when it online

真係伏到喊出黎
workload同grade唔成正比
成個sem有4份assignment要做
兩份group assignment 兩份individual assignment

group assignment係拍一條片同 整一個media裝置
拍片都還好, 一兩日搞得掂的事
個裝置先係最伏
由整實體裝置到整PPT加加埋埋用左成個月
非常麻煩

完左兩份group assignment之後仲要做兩份individual assignment
其中一份仲最少要1500字

做完咁大堆野都只係得B range都幾失望
利申: 條片得B但之後三份assignment都極用心做
但最後都只係得呢個grade

個人認為唔太抵讀

2份group assignment (about 5 people in a group)
- (A-) 1份係拍一段大約5分鐘既video,主題冇限制. 會教你點用video editing 既 software 同埋借go-pro比你去拍片.
- (唔知咩Grade) 1份係整一個new media project,例如hardware device, intelligence machine, installation work, creative promotional campaign, performance.......etc.
同埋要交好多份文件
(Strategy Documentation
Concept models
Competitive analyses/Comparsion on similiar project
Content inventories
Genre ( for installation work/performance)
User Needs Documentation
Personas/Target Audience
Design Documentation
Wireframe
Flowchart
Site map
Screen Design /Mock-Up
Schedule and Planning
Production Schedule
Venue & Floor Plan (for installation work/performance)
List of Equipment/Resources)
我地班全部都係用Makey Makey黎交功課,有教你整泡菜,教行山基本知識等等.
2份individual assignment
- 1份係exhibition reflection report, 要參觀2-3個展覽, 1個展覽寫番1份report , 有格式比你跟住黎做(會介紹展覽比你去參觀)
- 1份係design analysis, 都係有格式有sample比你跟住做,要分析1件product係good design or bad design, 再跟據佢比你既格式去分析(做2-4個products)
出席率計分(落堂前點名)
付出與收穫不成正比,workload重,lecture好悶

Grade靚唔靚我唔知
但Workload一定超重 超級浪費時間
成個COURSE要求每組人拍一條片、做一個prototype同埋兩篇ESSAY
條片還好
一、兩日可以搞掂
但其中一篇1,500字ESSAY真係超級浪費時間
要你去幾個EVENTS/SHOWS/EXHIBITIONS寫感想
Prototype都好浪費時間 要用電子零件整舊野出黎 又要整PPT

I enjoyed this course a lot, it's fun and rewarding. Compared to other GEs, this one is really different because you don't have to memorize a single word from the text, everything is on your own!

We were given 2 individual assignments and 2 group projects to work on throughout the whole semester. Individual assignments include written exhibition review (1500 words) and a design analysis. Both of them were not difficult.

In terms of group projects, the first one is a 20% video shooting task. Ryan gave us the freedom to choose the title for the video, he is also helpful in giving us valuable comments and suggestions to make our video better. Other than that, he introduced and borrowed us a lot of powerful gadgets like the GoPro Hero4 to work with the video. The overall experience is amazing, even though I just knew my groupmates for just a few weeks.

The second group project is about creating an interactive game prototype. This time we were given a topic, Chinese Traditional Culture. It doesn't matter if you don't have any engineering groupmates because Ryan is always there to help, as long as you voice out, he will give you with a lot of useful ideas and tips.

One more thing, you are allowed to present your products in any languages that Ryan understands, in cantonese, chinese or in english, which I think is really great. And most importantly, don't be a deadline fighter unless you wish to burn your grades.

上一段留言大致都講晒,我自己覺得呢個course同其他科真係好唔一樣,冇課文要背,上堂輕鬆,present亦都唔會好formal,可以講廣東話,主要係兩個Project真係要好花心機同時間,做嘅過程覺得好麻煩,但present完就覺得學到嘅野好有用。Ryan份人都算幽默,教書唔會悶,例如GoPro,3D printing同微動器嘅應用都好有趣。雖然要tick attendance,但遲成粒鐘都唔會有問題,因為次次都係落堂先tick。
整體黎講,呢科係讀得過,冇CM底或者Art底都唔緊要,用多d佢教嘅技巧就起碼B range.

This course is a very good course and I had really enjoyed it. The workload is not too heavy and the tutor Ryan Lam is very nice and helpful.

The grading of this course consists of three parts:
2 group projects (50%)
2 individual assignments (40%)
Attendance (10%)

Group Project:
The first one is to take a short video. The video can be about anything you like as long as you make use of the video taking techniques that Ryan has taught during the lectures. A GoPro will also be provided if you do not have a video camera, therefore you need not to worry about this part. Choosing groupmates with video taking or editing experience is a plus but it is not a must as Ryan is willing to take time to teach you.

The second group project is to make use of digital media to make an installment on a theme which is related to Chinese culture/festival (the theme might change every semester). Ryan will hold workshops to teach you how to make use of different forms of media. Once again, having groupmates with engineering background is not a must as Ryan is always willing to help.

For each of these projects, you will have to do a group presentation. The presentation is very hea, and Ryan allows you to present in Cantonese, English and Mandarin.

Individual Assignment:
The first assignment is a product design review. Ryan will post guidelines on how to do the assignment and offer some examples of past students work for you to do. You need to complete around 2-4 review of good/bad designs. I highly recommend you to choose designs that you have used before. This assignment is all about creativity since you can review anything you want (even a water bottle). There is no word limit to this assignment, but I personally have written around 1800 words.

The second assignment is exhibition/seminar review. During the semester, Ryan will suggest different exhibition and seminar for you to attend. It is expected that you attend 2-3 and also take some photos/videos from them to add into the review. Apart from that, Ryan will also post a template for the exhibition/seminar review onto Canvas if you do not know where to start. The expected number of words for this assignment is at least 1500 words.

You will have the whole semester to complete these two assignments. As for myself, I have completed them during the exam week, but it took me only 3 days. Still, I do not recommend you to deadline fight if you want an A range for this course.

Attendance:
Ryan allows 3 absents during the course. One absent will reduce your overall grade by 1%. If you really want an A, try not to have more than 1 absents. I have had three absents (1 with reason) and I only got an A-. For morning lecture, it's okay if you come to class an hour late as Ryan only takes attendance at the end of each class.

Overall:
The course was very useful and not so difficult to follow. I highly recommend this course!
