“Learning environment affects our achievement of learning. This atmosphere makes us motivated!” -Student
“The most influential aspect of the classroom, I thought, was the positioning of seats in a U shape facing the teacher,
but also allowing the students to see each other. The room was visually interesting and pleasant to be in,
a much better feeling than a cold, stark, dead classroom.” -Student
“The class fully used the space . . . different furniture, different configurations of the class (small groups, 1:1, etc).
The class particularly liked "their own" panel to write class contributions.” -Instructor
“The Smart Board allows for us to connect our own computers and share our movies and editing works in progress easily through Airplay.”
“In D101, we used the 3 rooms to classify students' projects into 3 groups, students
re-arranged furniture according to their needs - more discussion and collaboration was possible.” -Instructor
