Pretty easy, overall.
I really enjoyed this course because it fully engulfed the whole Human-Computer Interaction process. There are numerous things that a researcher has to do before coming up with their "final" piece, which ends up being an application. During this course, we had to do user research to find out what a consumer would like in an application. After this, we had to build upon our research and come up with a design. After all was said and done, I got to add this into my portfolio.
I learned how the entire process worked (user research until the final project). We had 4 different major assignments due in this course. However, it was nice because each one built off the others. In the end, I got to add this into my portfolio (which doesn't hurt!). Overall, this course was the basis of learning about Human-Computer Interaction, and why people tend to click/look at the certain things they do in an application or web site.

Advice for students:
Just make sure that you do all of the homework, and don't slack. It will definitely be harder to get to the next phase of your final project if you miss an assignment due date. Each section of the 'final project' is based off of the previous one, which does help you to understand what you're doing each assignment, and why.
