Submit a paper of about 5 single-spaced pages containing your reflections on the course. This should be a reflection from your personal, individual perspective on how the course is going for you. This paper will not be shared with other students in the class.

Reflect on what you have learned in the course (and what you have not learned). How did the course meet or not meet your expectations and needs?

How was the format of the course successful in providing you with a good learning experience about interaction design? What would you suggest could be changed?

If you had another 10 weeks to work with your teammates on the group project, how would you proceed?

How would you redesign your device for the Koi Resort based on what you have learned in the course?

What do you think should be adopted by the VMT project?

Place a title, your name and the date at the top of your paper. Number the pages. Save your paper with a file name of your last name and "_reflections" (e.g., stahl_reflections.doc). Submit your Word document as an attachment to an email to:

Email your paper by midnight of the due date. Grades will be substantially reduced for late papers.

Comments on reflection papers

The final reflection papers were fascinating. They are mostly very personal statements about how the course as a whole was experienced. Each paper appreciated different aspects of the course and different features of the approach to collaborative online learning. Most of what the course attempted to do was appreciated by one paper or another. Perhaps the most surprising thing was that the instructor's role was rated very highly, despite the fact that the instructor remained very much in the background in order to let group collaboration proceed. I am posting all the reflection papers here so you can read each other's:
