STUDENT EXPERIENCE*

 

*Disclaimer: The following quotes were sourced from the cohort studying CGI at UniSA in 2018. Students were asked to give honest feedback in the form of something they liked and didn't like about Polytut. They were not required to identify themselves. Nearly all of the  negative feedback related to specific bugs that have since been fixed and as such these comments have been omitted.

 

"Great way to learn. Very fun and interactive. Easy to learn and navigate."

- Jay

 

"I thought it was a fun and interactive way to get to know the sorts of controls and skills needed to use a program like Maya, which I have never used before. I found it easy to navigate and the games were a fun way to cement new knowledge."

- Lauren

 

"Like: Great way to have a hands on approach Dislike: Unfortunately it isn't used as an assessment."

- Sean

 

"It made learning more interesting and easy to understand."

- Kristen

 

"The one thing that was great about Polytut was you could do the games and everything in your own time."

- Anonymous

 

"I thought it was really overwhelming at first but quickly got the hang of things and found the games really helpful. The glossary was a life-saver and I feel like I have learnt a lot!"

- Emma

    "A great learning tool for intro to 3D tech."

    - Charlotte

     

    "A much better way to introduce basics than my daughter's method of assuming that these are already common knowledge!"

    - Marie (mature-age student)

     

    "I liked that Polytut had clear explanations and had a glossary to define unfamiliar terms, as well as games to put learning to the test. There isn't anything I disliked about Polytut."

    - Liv

     

    "I really like the way the modules were interactive and were able to show the different aspects of the 3D modelling, selection etc. games were fun too."

    - Michael

     

    "This is a really great resource for teaching Maya - I wish there were more programs like this when I was in high school as teaching through play makes learning easier, and more memorable. There is a great attention to detail in recreating how Maya works."

    -  Alicia

     

    "I enjoyed learning about Maya editing using Polytut as it was very well set out and easy to understand."

    - TeeJay

     

    "The layout of all of the lessons were very interesting and can be easily navigated. The games and tests at the end of them really helped me enjoy it."

    - Kathryn

     

    "What I like most about this program was that it was entertaining, however [Polytut] taught me a lot whilst being interactive through the different games and tasks."

    - Carlia

     

    "Really enjoyed the overall structure, playing it like it was an interactive experience was very enjoyable, especially when learning controls over the software."

    - Jay P

     

    "Was a lot of fun. The games were really well designed and competitive. I think the games are quite distracting however - I wasn't really focusing much on the glossary too much because I was trying to get high scores on the games."

    - Nathan (competitive gamer)

     

    "Good: the games are a great way to put to use the skills you learn and the idea of unlocking more ways to play the game by unlocking more tools is awesome. Bad: it's pretty sweet nothin' bad."

    - Alex

     

    "Enjoyed the games as they made it easier to remember the different key shortcuts."

    - Amy

     

    "[Polytut] explains things really well so you can grasp the theory."

    - Maddy

     

    "I liked the gentle curve of tutorialisation."

    - Koopa

     

    "Loved the interactivity, clear layout and instructions."

    - Sash

     

    "The lantern lighter game was pretty fun!!!! I don't think i came across anything I didn't like while partaking in the modules."

    - Elizabeth

     

    "Really interesting way to learn these functions. I like that the games can be played at all levels (i.e. coming back with camera mobility will make it a whole new game)...well done, very impressive."

    - Tara

     

    "This game was a great way to start off the semester!!"

    - Ruby

     

    "I like this style of practical, [I] can learn some knowledge in the class and also can [have] some fun [at] the same time."

    - Junbo (international student)

     

    "I really liked the games. They were really fun but also very challenging...overall, really fun interactive app :)"
