Excellent course. I don't come from a design/art background - in fact, I'm one of those "I don't know anything about art but I know what I like" people - but I keep trying to understand what people are talking about when they speak the language of visual art. This course was more about philosophy (which is one of my primary fields of interest); each week opened with a rather abstract lecture about the general topic of the week (what is design, who are we designing for, etc) before progressing to more concrete discussions. Exercises were varied and interesting (which water bottle is most feminine? Which is most expensive, which comfortable?) and several great interviews with designers were included (I especially enjoyed the one with Prof. Yarom Vardimon).
