Very important course of the Interaction Design specialization. Nicely crafted assignments. You will add value to the company you are working for by taking up this course. Amazing faculty!

a very interesting course for anyone who enjoys simple easy to use systems and tools themselves. The last assignment was a great example of the practical applicability of this course

Very interesting course. Some content in this course are far more than UX design I learnt during my undergraduate studies.

Dated material mostly. References to analog mice, gesture focus, voice interaction completely missing, not much to do with interaction design pit falls like hidden menus.

A good course, especially the second week on finding and filtering - vivid examples of good filters and what to draw your attention to.

I felt that Professor Klemmer should have demonstrated plugging actual numbers into the Fitts' Law formula. He described how it was invented and why but didn't actually demo it. The quiz was nothing but Fitts Law calculations. I didn't grasp the concept as well as I'd like to have. I had to do search queries online and look at Youtubes to understand it better.
The video assignment was challenging but fun. I learned Adobe Premiere in 3-4 hours so that I could edit my video. Without a homework deadline I doubt I would've pushed myself on my own.
Thanks, Coursera. I really enjoy your platform!

Another 3-stars-at-best course in the HCI specialization. Again, the lecture content itself is interesting, but the assignments don't seem to be valuable. The lectures do not effectively explain how to do the Fitts Law calculation, which could lead to frustration and/or excessive Googling for help on the first quiz. The second assignment was fine, but the last assignment is useless and should be dropped or changed to something that at least feels productive. Lastly, the question on the final quiz about which Fitts Law variable is user dependent is never directly discussed in the lecture and comes across as a trick question where there is no right answer.

I felt this course was a little too barebones. Not enough new learning or practice.

The problem with this course:
1.assignment instructions given unclearly it was a bit misleading -often difficult to understand what we have to do exectly.
2.the assignments shoud be checked by professionals with clear instructios, so you can understand feedback and have a better idea about possible outcomes and mistakes.
3.must be more structured form of teaching with multiple examples -there is not enough examples.

It is a good course to 'begin' dabbling in the field of Interaction Design.
It exposes one to a lot of concepts. However it does not go into the depths of all these concepts. That is something one will have to do on his own.

The final quiz was tough, I feel like there was disconnect between the material that was taught and the questions that were asked.
