Module Feedback:

This was a challenging and very interesting module, with a difficult year-end exam. I learned some valuable skills on this part of the HNC that helped my academic growth throughout the third year (HND to-pup) and beyond. This was a difficult module in that every topic was a new concept, however, in achieving an aggregate 70% (scarping a distinction) I'm confident in saying I mastered 'HCI' too...
Thank you Mr. Hassett you're a credible tutor.
