- None didnt follow course» (?)
- This was the worst exercise i ever been at.» (Small extent)
- We were told that the most important part of the exercise session was the pitch of our design, not the design itself. Frankly, the point of this is beyond me - we are taking a course on HCI, not marketing or public relations skills. For the report, the most important part apparently was the reflection on the exercise itself (descriptions of our design were prohibited) but the feedback I received was basically no more than "ok"...» (Small extent)
- What to write?» (Some extent)
- det framgick inte vad själva målet var med övningen förr än den det var redovisningar. målet var att sälja sin produkt medan vi trodde att det var att konstruera en bra och genomtänkt produkt. det var väldigt många som hade misstolkat. handledarna var också oense på flera punkter och tystade ner varandra vilket var lite underligt.» (Some extent)

- Very short but positive comments. Only once a constructive improvement suggestion, don"T know if they really where nice or if some improvement could have been mentioned :-)» (?)
- None didnt follow course» (?)
- Was way to early for our group. Would be better to do this when the groups want instead of having a strict deadline (since many groups work practical the first few weeks, and then just work with writing).» (Small extent)
- Wasn"t given much feedback» (Small extent)
- Few tips on improvements. Lack of constructive feedback» (Small extent)
- got good feedback from tommaso but the rest was quite wothless » (Small extent)
- To get rejected because of not explaining what the exercise was about, when it was the lectures who had made it seemed really silly. This is however not a personal vendetta, just one case so I can explain better how they seemed to accept/reject on most obscure things The feedback on the assignment was good so that you could know what you HAD to write to get the assignment accepted» (Small extent)
- There barely was any feedback at all at the exercises, so what was the whole point with them? More on the assignment but it was all a bit messy.» (Small extent)
- Very little feedback, and took a while to get it.» (Small extent)
- Har knappt fått någon sådan. När vi lämnade in vårt halvfärdiga assignment fick vi inte ens svar på de frågor vi hade ställt.» (Small extent)
- Mostly the comments only said, good report I do however understand that with so many students you can"t really give extensive feedback on every report.» (Small extent)
- Feedback has been very short and not that informative. For the excercises I don"t think it"s necessary with more, but the project would benfit from it.» (Small extent)
- Sometimes it would be great if you have more feedback than just work done or not.» (Small extent)
- There wasnt much feedback.. for example last one just said "work done"» (Small extent)
- What written feedback? We never got any. We got a paper that was filled in with comments that said nothing about the project itself and on the assignments it was just "Ok, good work." or "Fix this:" nothing else.» (Small extent)
- There was very little feedback on exercises, sometimes just a "work done" or similar. The written feedback for the assignment consisted only of a checklist and was of absolutely no use.» (Small extent)
- I have made comments on this above.» (Small extent)
- Good feedback first week but later on in the course the only reply I recieved after one report was "work done". Not good at all!» (Small extent)

- Course website was unfriendly to use! comic.. the website wasn"t updated and didn"t match with what morten said.» (Very badly)
- The course website was a mess, and some things wasn"t even updated. Bad Human-Computer Interaction on this website. Just to find the exercise notes took me half an hour» (Very badly)
- en interaktions designs kurs som har den värsta layouten någonsin. de borde göra cognitive walkthrough på den, väldigt svårt att hitta det man letade efter plus att det var ett väldigt fult tema.» (Very badly)
- Dåligt uppdaterad» (Very badly)
- one example is the 5 or 6 exercise to complete the course. I still dont know if you needed to do 5 or 6 exercises. » (Very badly)
- I dont even know where to begin.... The site is a mess. Its extremly hard to find. its annoyingly hard to ready and its a poor design. The site is not updatet at all. Morten says one thing at a lecture and the site says another thing. You can never be sure on what to do.» (Very badly)
- It would have worked better if the information was the same all over instead of shifting from time to time without no reason to do so. I am still unsure if we actually did not have a "tentamen" for this course.» (Very badly)
- The course site is that ugly I don"t want to look at it!» (Rather badly)
- The overhead"s on the course web-page was never up to date.» (Rather badly)
- Conflicting information on what we were required to do (see notes on exercise reports above). We had to ask whether we were supposed to send the assignment in via e-mail and paper copies in addition to using Fire - as the web page states. This was to be changed on the page we were told, but it still isn"t. Also there is mention of an "Important Dates and Times" item, but I can"t find any link to this.» (Rather badly)
- I would prefer to have the current slides in advance.» (Rather well)
- You should not have to log in to Fire to find out about hand in dates. The should be in the schedule or somewhere else were they are easy to find.» (Rather well)
- Alright. Could"ve been a better home page since the course is about human-computer interaction.» (Rather well)

- None didnt follow course» (?)
- could have been improved a lot through adding more content» (Poor)
- The course ruins a interresting subject.» (Poor)
- I don"t understand how its possible make a pretty interesting subject, to such a uninteresting and boring course. The things the teacher talks about makes no sense and its impossible to hear what he says. The different hand leaders on the exercises have different rules and requirements and its different hand leaders every week who handle your report. Its A LOT TO MUCH focus on that you should have the right font and that the text should be divided in to columns and so on. And the report have to be EXACTLY one page no more no less. In my opinion they should focus on the content and not on these things. This just makes you angry went you get rejected because you had the wrong font in your text. » (Poor)
- The worse course I"ve ever been on ever since daycare. Unstructured and fuzzy» (Poor)
- I had high expectations of the course, the worse for me. I would not recommend it to anyone.» (Poor)
- This is a course that you should only take if you"re really interested in the subject matter, it should not be compulsory. Because if you"r not interested in this course you wont get anything out of it, period.» (Poor)
- Det är pinsamt att den här kursen finns på chalmers. Det är ju egentligen en jätterolig och jättebra kurs. Jättetråkigt att den görs så dåligt» (Poor)
- No clear reason why we should learn this and most things where just stating the obvious» (Poor)
- Maybe you could have use for this, but not at the first year. Lectures need to be better planned, you cant rush through 45 slides in 10 min... » (Poor)
- You can not have a course built for a "tentamen" and then change the grade setting part to a project without changing the course itself. And even if it would have been changed I doubt that the course would have been much better. This is wierd though as one of the best master programs are the one that focus on HCI.» (Poor)
- It is a difficult subject to teach no doubt, but I think many people walked away rather confused. There was too much stuff being discussed during lectures, and too vague exercises/assignments.» (Poor)
- övningarna var jätte bra och gav väldigt mycket. så också rapporterna. Assignment var godkännd men det kännes som att man mest skrev för att få ihop 6 sidor än att göra bra analyser och skriva en bra raport. 6 sidor i storlek 10 är väldigt mycket och inte jätte mycket vägledning. föreläsningarna gav absolut ingenting, vilket jag blev väldigt besviken över eftersom jag har sett fram emot denna kursen.» (Fair)
- Even though i probably will use the knowledge that i have gained from the course the lectures could be better. The exercises where pretty good.» (Fair)
- Adequate leaning towards good. Mainly thanks to good exercises.» (Adequate)
- Pointless lectures about virtual reality etc. Good exercises and interesting assignment.» (Adequate)
- I never had a course were lectures and exercises were so well adjusted. Great! Also the exercises were fun and I learned a lot. » (Excellent)

26. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Everything. Probably finish exercises when they are done and don"t try to fill the time untill 3 hours are over. That makes it boring inbetween (Only happened once/twice)»
- This course should be removed as a compulsory course in IT.»
- Almost everything perhaps.»
- Att de skrivs ett arbete ist för tenta»
- the exercise sessions should be preserved,and the assignment.they are helpful for understanding the course content.»
- The exercises»
- mikrofonen, men det är ju bra om den används.»
- May be can ask more companies like TIBCO-Spotfire to give exercises.»
- Excercises»
- The Assignment.»
- The assisgnment. And all exercises exept the 5th. (monator)»

- monator exercise»
- The teacher M. Fjeld»
- hmm monator»
- Nothing, remake the whole course instead from scratch and make a good analysis of it. I found the project to be fun but it did not fit in with the rest of the course. So either mold the course after the project and make sense of it or take away the project and start from scratch.»
- exercises. the good lectures where the speaker manages to make the students laugh and enjoy HCI. examples of bad design, good design is great, when kept brief.»
- inspiring examples in the pp"s»
- The Monator/Spotfire exercises»
- It seems like a good idea to have a written assignment instead of a traditional exam for this particular course. The form of this needs to be improved a little, though. Some (most) exercises filled their purpose.»
- Exercises and assigment, nice actually doing the methods practically.»

27. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- Get rid of that atrocious book»
- Might want to change the book. Might want to make the lectures mandatory, since a lot were to lazy to attend since there were no exam.»
- more relevant information! the course gave close to nothing that was actually new and useful...»
- Less examples in the lessons and more detailed what is good, bad, can be made better and how to do the changes on the examples that are presented.»
- Webpage remake frameset. More clearly exercise. Make more example in lecture. More halftime draft.»
- The lectures felt boring due to them mostly briefly covering a large amount of information. It would be better to let the lectures be about the material given at the exercises. That way a more clear connection between the exercises and the lectures would be given.»
- Lectures, Guest lectures, Clear goals that does not change in the middle of the course. Need to update the handouts and exercise templates. All information in written form was outdated.»
- I think you should remake the hole course and get a new teacher and new hand leaders. It doesn"t help that he has a microphone you don"t understand why he says the things the says and how that"s related to the subject. Either remake this course from the basis or removed it from the required courses on the IT-program »
- Most of the things. I guess the assignment where better than explaining how to make pancakes on a tentamina, but the lectures should refer more to realitycases, on work or elsewise. Instead of having 1000 ppts in 2 hours, I believe that a more structred way where you go through designpatterns etc would be greater, maby by interact with the students and have some on the board, maby DO what you teach, so the students can follow the steps.»
- The webpage becuase is very confusing, and remark more the deadline for exercises, and explain better the exercises taht are mandatory»
- föreläsningarna måste ge något. föreläsningarna brukar vara det största bidraget till min inlärning eftersom jag helst lyssnar mig till information, men det var ingenting i föreläsningarna som gav någon information som man hade användning för eller kunde delvis ersätta en kursbok.»
- The lectures. They didn"t provide relevant information. All Morten went through in the exercises were how well his friends have done and how awesome their products were >.<»
- This course should be removed as a compulsory course in IT.»
- the exercises could be changed a bit more perhaps to engage the knowledge gained in the lectures. We also defintely need a list of design methods, especially when doing the project. This is a major inconvenience because it is neither available inthe recommended text, nor is it searchable on the internet. »
- Grade the exercises faster.»
- slides på föreläsningar (de var extremt många och extremt röriga), vettigare och mer genomtänka föreläsningar. Bättre feedback på övningar, alltså feedback som man verkligen har nytta av! Gå efter övning 5, den var riktigt bra! »
- too many slides in the course which should be reduced.»
- Ditch the microphone. There was never a problem to hear the lecturer as long as some idiot didn"t speak and/or play games in class. Unfortunately some students are simply idiots and can"t keep quiet and show respect to the lecturer and fellow classmates. Maybe you could hire Chuck Norris to shut up students with a roundhouse kick if they don"t keep quiet during class.»
- Lectures»
- Lectures»
- More examples about what to do as an Assignment. You were supposed to pick a subject very early, but you didn"t know what the course was all about in that stage.»
- I think all methods should at least be briefly overviewed before the assignement is started. Otherwise you might miss some very important methods.»
- Remove the monator exercise. And not so much video showing on the lectures. Better to just link most of them on the web page.»
- more excercises»
- material more up to date and more relevant»
- Nothing»
- Skip the mic or find one that doesnt give everyone a headache, because it goes on and off all the time and one were you dont have to listen to interference from a mobil all the time»
- Almost everything. Atleast make the course sensable in the way that the diffrent parts have something to do with each other.»
- the lectures. too much unnecessary information is oftenly brought up, it makes students skip lectures because they think they won"t miss anything anyway. walls of text in powerpoints is a very bad idea. the teacher should not go so deep into certain things like mouses, it"s interesting but should be kept brief as I stated before. Lectures should give ideas that triggers creative ideas in the student"s minds and teaches them how to design user-friendly.»
- the project should be graded based on a opposition.»
- Someone should rethink this course, and decide on specific areas on which to focus, instead of trying to cover everything. It"s too confusing as it is. There should also be much more discussion about the assignment, and maybe assign a TA to each group for tutoring.»
- Make the lectures more relevant to the exercises and the assignment.»
- More focused lectures, fewer slides, less films. The Monator exercise was not good, if the goal was to consolidate what we had learned during the course and put it to use, the exercise definitely missed its mark.»
- Evaluate the lectures. 90 powerpoint pages in 90 minutes(Im not kidding) is just silly. Someone needs to actually think those lectures over.»

28. Additional comments

- Gör om, gör rätt.»
- Quicker response from the graders if possible (waited up to 3 weeks on some exercises).»
- HCI is intresting. But hard to understand and relate to it.»
- they exercises weren"t corrected within resonable time»
- Doesn"t Chalmers do any better? This is our first year and we are already getting this crap!»
- Great COurse»
- This course should be removed as a compulsory course in IT.»
- Det jag har lärt mig i den här kursen, hade jag kunnat lära mig på en snabbkurs över en helg.»
- I do not konw why the number of students who attend the lecture become less and less, there may be some problem, I do not know....»
- Announce and start with the assignments even earlier.»
- I must say I"m not very satisfied with Mortens part. Maybe he could try and find other ways of lecturing as they can be very uninteresting and hard to follow at times. Less slides. Activate students instead with interesting tasks (more often than done, and more thoroughly explained), instead of just talking. Microphone technique/no mic at all, his voice is most likely to be enough if he articulates better or speeks up. Content change for the lectures as proposed above. To be honest I would"ve prefered another teacher.»
- I"m glad it"s over atleast.»
- Nope»
