- I don"t know» (?)
- I would prefer the appliance of the the theories in practice rather than an old fashioned theory-based exam...» (To some extent)
- too many questions were you just learn a number, i.e. things that you can easily just look up when you need to know the exact figures. for example, it"s good to know about saccades and the consequence of them, but not to know by heart the exact ms they take » (To some extent)

- It is really hard to keep up with reading the book. It is not really easy to read. There are so many facts and details and it"s hard to tell which parts can be skipped. Further it is hard to remember the things that were read. There is no real guided application of the rules during the labs and in the end I could not answer the exam questions from reading the corresponding chapters. The exam was only doable because we could learn with the questions/quiz and search for answers beforehand.» (Small extent)
- Book and slides are good, however the book is definitively too big to be completed within 2 months with the course pace.» (Large extent)
- mandatory for exam» (Great extent)

- One good teacher, two bad ones ,( However I did not attend to very many lectures» (Poor)
- it has some problems (mentioned earlier), but it"s these kinds of courses, when you include psychology and such into the design thinking, that I think should be taught more at ixd.» (Good)
- It might get some improvements on lectures and feedback sessions, however it was pretty good.» (Good)
- Thomas lectures are very good. » (Good)

14. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- Exercises »
- Thomas"s teaching style»
- Lectures structure.»
- The lectures»
- Feedback, Exam and self study on it are quite important»
- The exam preparation was good. I could not have passed the exam by just reading the book.»

15. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- more time for the project, solutions for exams, better supervision for the seminar»
- Maybe grade some of the exercises.»
- the conflict of having presentations and deadlines the exact same moment with other courses...»
- change from salstenta to home exam or just a larger project. »
- I didn"t like to be evaluated only on the reading of a book and the quantity of knowledge i get from it. We put much effort in tasks and project which were not graded at all.»
- The exam. Maybe a section that tests the skill at constructing an actual interface would be better at assesing the skill of the student.»
- the specifics of everything, is it really important for an interaction designer to know how big the viewing angle is? Keep it more general. And is it important with 2h lecture on x-ray, ultrasound and cancer for an interaction designer?»
- Did not like that everyone did the same project»
- Some exercises are not so interesting»
- I would like to have some more application of rules on specific labs with information visualization or interface design. The labs were not really connected to the course content. We just did our typical design process. It is hard to get real rules from the lectures or the book. Color theory and gestalt laws are really useful but we were on our own to draw our lessons from that and apply it. Maybe there could also be some evaluation of given designs with the guidelines in mind.»
