A great overview of the smart cities topic - covered a great deal of information in a short amount of time, and provided useful perspectives through which to think about critical issues.

Excellent overview on different aspects of smart urban infrastructure. Course creators made complex issues really easy to understand, even for absolute beginners.

English of this course is somewhat hard to follow. And I would like to learn more about case studies.

Good theorical introduction to smart cities concepts.
A definition of smart cities or urban manager would be appreciate. Sometimes, not very clear distinction with policy makers
Giving more instantiated views of the concept would be appreciated too.
Easy quizz evaluation mode (regarding to some other course ;-)

Positive: New insights are well summarized into separate categories providing good overviews. The smart city concept is put into context and provides a basic outline of knowledge to pertain to when talking about the topic.Negative: Boring lecturing, bad power point slides (in terms of modernity and structure), acted interviews.

I have met part of my goals of taking this program. Thank you Prof. Mathias Finger. I would recommend it to be more data oriented like those case studies with specific examples so that it naturally converges to creating case study for a city at the end of the course as final project rather than optional study. Also, suggest to reduce discussions centred to challenges (the course has taken too much of time) and more towards different new services adopted by different cities to capture benefits/impact to the city GDP.

A lot of the course relied on memorizing key points with little effort made to explain the logic behind them.

The lectures for this course lacked substance. The quizzes predominantly asked for verbatim recitation of the substance-free lectures.

This course is about generic concepts on governance towards the implementation of Smart City systems. It does not cover practical or technological issues.

THE COURSE IS REALLY MONOTONOUS AND THE LECTURES ARE DRAB AND REPULSIVE. PRACTICAL EXAMPLES ARE NOT DISCUSSED UPTO THE EXTENT THAT THEY SHOULD BE. THE COURSE CONSISTS OF ONLY THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE. IT DID NOT MEET MY EXPECTATIONS:-(:-(:-(

More examples would be nice. Referring to more cities would be helpful. More examples, more concrete information would give more useful insights...
