In this forum that the students then give their comments on topics of the course discussion initiated by the lecturer .

However , previously notified in advance to the students , to submit a comment that should be done professionally , do not bring dirty words or rude .
"There are only ’ I agree with the comments of the pack -so ’ or ’ I agree baseball ’ . Been 6 weeks of baseball there . I saw him their comments no redundant . Means, he says one paragraph , the next paragraph he says again , it does not exist . give him points directly . Right on target , " said Tengku .

Means that the next 5 years the company wants how , and what should be made by the company , its marketing must be how , production , and others , "said Tengku .
