I carry out some tutoring on the De Montfort University (Leicester) MArch Part 2 course. We encourage students to use tools to help inform design decisions that can enhance the internal environment. Daylight Factor and Daylight Modelling using Free Tool called Velux Visualizer is really neat and can be used by just about anyone.
