Everything about the course is great - the concepts, the presentation of the concepts, the assignments and even the quiz.

The topic was interesting enough, but I actually don't feel like I learned much in this course compared to the previous two courses, especially from the assignments. The assignments don't teach or require any hands-on skill, but are mostly theoretical/analytical and not in a way that's particularly enlightening. The section on crowdsourcing is too long for the general message that's extracted in the end (ie, the interview with the Mturker was a waste of time and easily could've been reduced to less than 5 minutes with the same info). My 3-star review is a bit generous, but I rounded up because the course is essentially free.

I didn't find the course material particularly stimulating or challenging. I'm interested in the practical side of interaction design for the enterprise, and am not designing another social startup.I grew up using social networks and this course seems better aimed at people who have less exposure to that aspect of the internet/technology.

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.

This course will make you work and think more. Some assignment will be one whereas others will take a good amount of time. Make sure you go through the video couple times or take notes while the instructor is explaining.
