  • At
 the
 end
 of
 the
 New
 Media
 course,
 the
 14
 participating
 students
 were
 asked
 to
 take
a
survey
in
order
to
evaluate
the
New
Media
course
together
with
the
lecturer’s
 method,
 approach
 and
 enthusiasm.
 The
 evaluation
 survey
 was
 accessible
 online
 leaving
students
with
the
option
of
taking
it
at
their
own
pace
and
in
the
absence
of
 the
lecturer.
To
avoid
bias,
students
were
asked
to
submit
their
answers
before
their
 finals
 grades
 were
 delivered.
 11
 out
 of
 the
 total
 of
 14
 students
 took
 the
 survey,
 offering
responses
from
78.5%
of
the
course
participants.
 The
survey’s
structure
can
be
seen
in
the
attached
document.

 The
answers
to
the
survey
together
with
the
percentages
are
to
be
seen
in
the
pages

  • Observations
and
Conclusions:
 All
the
answers
given
to
the
questions
asked
are
in
the
higher
positive
range
–
from
 good
to
excellent.

 
 The
areas
marked
the
students
as
being
excellent
(obtaining
also
the
majority
vote)
 were:
 • The
lecturer’s
use
of
technology
(91%)
 • The
lecturer's
availability
to
offer
students
extra
help
when
you
asked
(91%)
 • The
lecturer’s
organization
of
the
course
(73%)
 • The
lecturer’s
use
of
examples
and
illustrations
(73%)
 • the
lecturer's
enthusiasm
(73%)
 
 It
is
considered
that
continuing
to
integrate
an
online
live
video
guest
lecture
and
a
 company
 visit
 in
 the
 course
 provided
 students
 with
 memorable
 and
 positive
 examples.
As
a
matter
of
fact,
both
the
Netlog
visit
and
the
online
live
guest
lecture
 had
highly
positive
scores
and
mentions.

 
 Three
qualitative
questions
were
part
of
the
survey
as
well.
They
aimed
to
determine
 the
 areas
 that
 students
 most
 liked
 or
 disliked
 as
 well
 as
 the
 elements
 that
 they
 would
have
wanted
the
course
to
cover.
Even
with
the
course
being
extended
to
8
 sessions
 compared
 to
 five
 in
 previous
 semesters,
 some
 students
 suggested
 the
 course
to
take
even
longer.
Division
of
teams
into
even
smaller
groups
(from
three‐ four
members
to
only
two)
were
also
suggested.
 
 The
practical
aspects
of
the
course
were
mentioned
as
strong
points
of
the
course
 and
good
learning
experiences.
It
should
be
noted
that
this
semester
featured
two
 in‐class
assignments,
one
individual
and
one
based
on
team‐work.
To
showcase
the
 students’
results
three
online
spaces
were
created:

 http://kathonewmedia.wordpress.com
 http://kathonewmedia.posterous.com
 http://kathonewmedia.pbworks.com

 
 These
spaces
were
also
used
to
showcase
the
student’s
final
practical
projects.

 
 Recommendations
and
suggestions:
 
 Taking
into
account
the
students’
observations
and
in
an
attempt
to
make
a
link
to
 the
areas
determined
in
the
course
evaluation
as
having
a
potential
for
improvement
 it
is
suggested:
 • to
attempt
selecting
students
prior
to
begging
of
class
(submission
of
online
 resume
 and
 Skype
 interview
 would
 allow
 the
 lecturer
 to
 interact
 first
 hand
 with
the
students
and
ensure
interest,
motivation
and
preparation
are
high)

  • • to
continue
emphasizing
on
the
practical
aspects
of
new
media
 • to
liaise
with
commercial
clients
and
thus
offer
the
students
the
opportunity
 to
work
on
projects
with
real
impact
on
business
actors
 • to
 continue
 to
 have
 guest
 lecturers
 from
 different
 universities
 joining
 via
 online
live
video
 • to
continue
emphasizing
on
short‐deadline
assignments
 • to
extend
the
course
further
from
8
session
to
10

 • to
offer
the
course
to
returning
students
(if
they
want
to),
their
assignment
 being
 to
 develop
 an
 online
 communication
 strategy
 or
 campaign
 for
 a
 product/company
of
their
choice
or
to
work
on
new
media
aspects
that
could
 relate
to
their
honour’s
degrees
for
their
home
institutions
