- It"s not that clever to have 2 schedules but only update the google one so that students come to early and wait ore vice versa. The structure of the webpage really needs to be redone. That is not very representative especially for a subject that deals with exactly this topic.» (Rather badly)
- The course homepage is horribly constructed (try to select some blocks of text and see for your selves) and updates between headers are inconsistent.» (Rather badly)
- The course web-page is not very good structured. Essential information like schedule were represented in two different versions (google and home-page). Also, the project and excercise descriptions were hard to find as they were written in a large text file with all other excercises and projects. Better to gather everything, including resources, belonging to the same project on the same place.» (Rather badly)
- The website wasn"t updated good enough, materials weren"t put up on the website, such as lecture slides. The category wasn"t very clear, project work and individual project were put on the same place, a bit confusing.» (Rather badly)
- The course website could be more structured and have things organized better. For example a pdf with each assignment should be provided instead of putting all the assignments in text form on the same page.» (Rather well)
- The course website has been a good resource.» (Rather well)

- I think I just refreshed the knowledge I got in "Human Computer Interaction" in SP 3. » (Poor)
- It could be better as the course content is so intersting.» (Adequate)
- Not much new.» (Good)
- Interesting and learning» (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The teacher, most of the exercises and the individual project.»
- The projects»
- The smal exercises are very good. Some form of smaller groupwork like dragons gold is also useful espacaly for getting to know how progarmer (more computer oriented people) work vs. design oriented. You lern a lot. It is very good to not just have project work but also individual work do not take that away.»
- The exercise sessions after the lectures. They"re really helpful for understanding the principles.»
- Guest lecturers form companies, exercises»
- A lot of examples of everything during the lectures. It is always a good way to get inspired.»
- The Dragon"s Gold project.»
- Maybe less exercises, the last one was clutching with the dragon"s gold deadline»
- No Comments»
- Projects and excercises.»
- The projects»
- To next year I think it is important that every student will get feedback on the exercises. This year you have no idea what you did that was good contra bad.»
- Exercises, group project.»
- Project (group)»
- Exercises, especially the two-day one. The use of Google Calendar = excellent!»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The main project (Dragon"s Gold) which seemed a waste of time at some points. There should also be more written assignments (by written I mean assignments that should be accompanied by written rationale of the design chosen). The level of the course should be pushed up a bit.»
- The grouping process, the leectures»
- The individual project is unclear and seems like a lot to do in the end. I think you could do the project under a longer period of time maybe in combination with the exercises in some way. Graded smaler exercises can otherwise be an alternative. »
- I would suggest the instructors to add some checklists for group project and individual project, so that we can follow and see what needs to be improved. Also, if the instructors can give some feedback individually for the exercises, that would be perfect:)»
- Motivate more to read the book and create connections in the lectures. Hand out material for the exercises in advance and expect them to be read.»
- The course homepage.»
- everything else»
- No Comments»
- More meetings with teachers and assistants during excercise and project work.»
- The reading materials.»
- The deadline of group project. It is very weird to have the deadline noon of a friday, why not have the whole weekend? The project report is usually finished AFTER presentation, as you get a lot of feedback, and can put that in your report. The teacher did change the deadline, BUT we only had one day to write the report, as the next day it was the exercise, and you don"t have time to write stuff before noon on Friday since it takes a lot of time to organize the report as well. I think you should take away the extra exercise in the end, or combine it with the individual project. One had no time to make a good finish in the end as there were three things that happened very close to each other.»
- not so clear structue (lecture)»
- Group project. Hard to design in a group when everyone is inexperienced. Everything becomes a compromise.»

16. Additional comments

- Use a better projector for next years presentations.»
- No Comments»
- Overall good, but maybe more tutors? Time of deadline is weird, why noon and not midnight? Too much work in the end. No feedback on the exercises, which is not motivating. »
- Big "thank you" to the teacher and TA"s - great job!»
