Waste of time & money & more accurately Professor Stalbaum was a self-righteous, judgmental wind bag hacking his own agenda & trying to bully us into agreeing with his personal views instead of exploring & developing their own minds to formulate a mindset of their own. I can't believe a university like this would employ such a antiquated moron

Horrible. Life long career "student" with zero real-world experience. Plenty of misinformation and pure nonsense. Preys on emotion and tries to publicly humiliate anyone who disagrees with his stated positions.

This professor was not very helpful or educated on the matters he teaches. I am not sure why he is in the position he is in, but the lack of insight is a disgrace to education.

I would not advise taking any courses from this teacher. He interjects his personal social views into the course far too much.

Brett's lectures are terrible and repetitive. His knowledge of icam is limited.

Avoid at all costs, Stalbaum is a self important little ignoramus, and goes out of his way to try to embarrass people.

I tagged him with "Bad Professor" Geo marker app, to help other students be aware of how dangerous his poor teaching skills are.

This class was a disaster and complete waste of time. His class was easy, but only because he graded so leniently to compensate for a total lack of subject knowledge.

I would like to note that Mr. Stalbaum is a flaming liberal, and if you are a conservative or a gun owner, he will literally assault you with his environmental take-only-what-you-need-and-love-the-earth goodness. And god forbid, if you own a gun, just drop out. He is the creator of Gun Geo Locator, violating the privacy of gun owners everywhere.

Definitely have some HTML background before you take this class. Your grade is solely based on 3 projects + crits. It is hard to get a fair grade on those projects. Not everybody can build a website, the app doesn't work, and the final is a joke. Don't buy the textbook, don't attend lecture, just section and get to know your TA.

The most prepared, enthusiastic, and motivated professor in all of ICAM. You will easily learn how to think about computer art, among a lot of other things. good, engaging class.

One helluva smart guy. Will tell you all you need to know about digital media & then some. Not one of those professors who make you wonder where your time went - Brett Stalbaum stuffs every minute with useful info and examples. Take this guy if you can, he's very nice & takes his lectures seriously.

Really nice guy and cares deeply about his students learning. The midterm and final were both online and pretty easy. 3 projects and quizzes in the class as well, grade depends on TA.

I don't know - lectures are good but sections are taught by TAs - hard to know a prof in a lecture this big. CAPEs for his other classes are good, and the online final was easy compared to the assignments.

The class was not exactly what I thought it was. A lot of history and theory. Don't major in ICAM unless you are ready, it is not an easy arts major.

lectures suck, ta's are great. i slept through lectures and got an A because i put time into the few assignments, which is the real point of the class. I think Brett would be better in more advanced hands on type of class. Good person to get to know for icam people though. his opinions really shines through in lectures, gps is mostly boring
