Course Description

085-Introduction to Daylighting

This course provides the basic understanding of daylighting, beginning from its origins: the history of its use throughout time, why we stopped using daylight for its benefits and why we are seeing resurgence.

Successful integrated building design includes utilizing daylight for its positive benefits, and which may include lowering energy costs by reducing the required HVAC system size of a building, a closer connection with the outside for those working and living in a building, and reducing environmental impact, specifically carbon emissions.

Daylighting may contribute to a building achieving LEED certification, and this course discusses the LEED system, version 3, and the rating systems under Building Design and Construction (BD+C) and Existing Building: Operations and Maintenance (EBOM).

The course provided a good basic understanding of daylighting. I'm still a little confused about raring points for LEED certifications, but that will be covered more in another course.

Good basic introductory course. Quite a few "misused" words that spell check won't catch. Pages 24, 25 and 26 probably should have been deleted during editing.

Very well organized and opened up new concepts. References and descriptions to existing facilities and design requirements particularly valuable. Well worth the time.

The author had a well-presented course, however it is clear he is pushing the global warming theory. I happen NOT to believe in man-made global warming or that man has any appreciable effect on CO emissions. For a better understanding read...."Cold Sun"

The course presents lots of good material and references if you want more information. I am an environmental engineer not a building designer so this is not my specialty. I still found it easy enough to follow. If I did want more info, it was there.

overall a good value!

The text could use a grammar smoothing as there are a few typos. Also, the presentation was a bit staccato and using bulleted list items in lieu of burying items in a paragraph would have helped flow. The pics and diagrams were fine and helped. However, in one diagram showing relation of sun to bldg, its not clear to me why the Northern face would receive the most amount of sun while the South face would receive 2nd most. In this same diagram, the sun direction arrows could use attention. Overall, the course was good and great value.

the course material was a good overview. One test question can be rationalized for 2 correct answers. This has been said before for Q13. This ambiguity should be fixed.
