Hi friends

How are you all doing? I am doing well. I have few questions on the course below. Has anyone taken the course IS 667: Interaction Design (3 credits)? How do you like the course content? What is the difficulty level?

Thanks in advance for you inputs.

I haven’t taken the class yet but I’m signed up for it this fall; I haven’t heard much about the class but I’m looking forward to it! Glad to hear you’re all doing well!

Hi guys,

I am guessing the question was aimed at me since I have finished my degree. I am not inclined to help since I feel I was sabotaged by the group in the grading area. I honestly tried my best and spent a lot of time on the group project but obviously not eveyone was forth coming on their thoughts concerning my work but were very forth coming during the end of semester critique.

Just a note, in all of the other groups I have worked, everyone worked on all sections of the project so if someone, like me, took it upon themselves to work on a section not assigned to them in order to help the team, taht was looked on favorably.

Best of luck.

what an email trail to wake up to this morning! the five of us worked on our group project for our systems analysis and design course this past semester.

Classmate 2 emailed the rest of us, wondering if we were being blamed for Classmate 3 getting a bad grade in the course and to say that she gave everyone a good grade. i know i gave good grades to everyone in my group (and got a good grade on the project). we all busted our butts on our project, so i don’t know why anybody in our group would have received a bad grade from the other team members.

…and then this happened to be posted today:
