I recently applied for the HCI courses at University of Washington and IU, Bloomington. While I'm awaiting their results, I thought I'd quickly get an opinion from the members of this forum on the respective courses. Since you guys have heard and probably analyzed these courses, it would really help if you could help me make my decision.
On behalf of the new Interaction Design Majors at the University of Washington, I would like to say hello and tell you all how excited we are to be an up-and-coming part of the design community here in Seattle.
We would love to form a UW chapter of the IxDA and are looking for more information with regards to the best way to move forward. Should we fill out a Local Group Application? Is there some way for us to do it under the umbrella of the Seattle IxDA?
Thanks so much and looking forward to getting to know you all over these next few years,
