I do have a question about how many errors or miss-prints are considered reasonable in module text books and the study planner?
For my module DD211, we have had the following:
TMA 2 guidance notes were incorrect
TMA 3 guidance notes were incorrect
TMA 4 guidance notes were incorrect
TMA 5 guidance notes were incorrect
Week 14 had dead links in it
Week 19 had incorrect information in it
Wee 21 had dead links and missing information in it.
Plus the whole online tutorial event on the 5th of October failed to work, despite us all wanting to do it because we had missed our first lecture because the tutorial booking system was a mess.
all this came after a update to the module books in June 2016, which i include here because some of the typo's are funny.
- Book 2, Block 4, chapter 14, page 41. Tony Blair was elected in 1997 and left office in 2007
- Book 2, Block 4, chapter 14, page 42. Jimmy Carter left office in 1981, not 1991
- Week 26 audio transcript for “Political concepts revisited” should read “serfs” and not “surfs”
- Week 26 section 4.2 the audio interview with Richard Heffernan indicates that in the US decisions on smoking in public places are covered by federal law. This should be 'state' law rather than 'federal' law.
Serfs not surfs!
Does anyone else have this kind of level of errors in the course materials?
Or have DD211 this year just been extra lucky?
