While this course was deemed to be interesting and enriching, students found the workload to be rather high and that they required more class time to learn the software. Hence, many would have appreciated it had the course included a tutorial section. Moreover, several students would have appreciated it had they had exclusive access to the Mac computer lab so as not to have had to compete for computers in order to complete their assignments.
