Q1.  Please comment on the strengths and weaknesses of the module, and suggest possible improvements.
1.Touches on many theory and concept in HCI but was not able to relate the use of them practically
2.-
3.- Perhaps make this a co-requisite for CS3240. Both are largely related and students can actually apply the theories learned there like Fitts' Law in CS3240 easily.
4.A lot of self learning is needed and students need to stay motivated to keep up with the lessons.
5.The module is somewhat aimless at times. It is just some random theories thrown all over the place.
6.Strength: - Exposed to a wide range of HCI concepts and how they play a role in defining positive user experience and functional systems. - Spurs lots of further thinking as HCI is a rather new field. Current concepts might not apply in certain context and time. Weakness: - Many concepts to remember and grasp.
7.Very good lessons on HCI concepts.
8.excellent student participation in module but project demands too precise
9.The module introduces many theories of HCI, gives students a deeper understanding of the real HCI. However, it would be probably better to be just a 100% project module without exams. It is not really practical for students to think and apply so many theories in 2 hours.
10.3rd HCI module that I'm taking and I would safely say that for HCI, guidance and iterations is needed. Although it will be a little bit taxing to the students for weekly progress submission, it will be beneficial to the students in the end as there will be a clear direction for students to look towards to. Apart from that, it seems similar to the other 2 HCI modules, CS3240 and CS3248.
11.Project should have more iterations.
12.I believe that what is taught is mostly useful in research settings, it does not seem logical to explicitly talk about theories in product evaluations. Also I do not like that more than half the module is actually taught us students, does not seem value for my money since I actually paid to come here to student, must as well ask my friends to teach me no? Worst is the workload, pitch+presentation+project+exam seems to be a bit of an overkill especially since the project extends till reading week and all topics are being tested in the close book exam. A piece of A4 help sheet is hardly useful.
13.workload is very heavy. A lot of expectations from 1 module. a lot of repeated topics from CS3248, prof Zhao's class.
14.Strength: Like the lecture style Weakness: Too many theories, hard to see the link between the lectures. Improvement: Better if short assignments that are related to project, so it forms a milestones for the project.
15.This module is more theoretical than I initially thought. However, it was still a great module, mostly due to Prof Kan's method of teaching. The content of the module was generally interesting, and making it a project heavy class actually helped to hone my soft skills. I like that Prof Kan is learning and teaching this module at the same time, so it's good to get a different perspective from a non-HCI lecturer. Overall, a good module that I would recommend to my friends.
