WS18: I liked the course, but felt that there wasn't enough time dedicated to discussing the presentations in class. Also, I got the impression that my grade resulted from my admittedly bad attendance only, not from any other contributions. Attendance was strongly recommended, but not represented as mandatory, so I feel my bad grade was not quite deserved.
