The course was great and I learned many valuable things. Its layout is easy to understand and the instructors never leave a thing unexplained. They are encouraging and know how to define terms and words that the students may not know.

Yet having every word explained to me is tiring - and I am not only talking about new terms that relate to journalism; no, simple words that are commonly known or easy to find the meanings of through any dictionary. I didn't come here to expand my vocabulary. I think it unnecessary, except, of course, when it is truly a term specific for journalism and uncommon in everyday language.

The way the instructors talked bothered me as well, the slow speed and use of short and simple words don't fit a MOOC of such a university. It could have been done better, in my opinion.

This a very thorough introduction to the discipline of journalism. The 10 principles are a part I would love to go through every month, looking at new material each time of course. The delivery of principles of journalism and grammar rules stick very easily. This course is sharp on that.

Phone compatibility is pretty good. The user interface is well adapted to the smartphone platform.

One critique is that the course material is ageing, and maybe hasn't been reviewed in a while. And in one instance, the quiz marked the answer to a multiple choice question wrong, though it appeared in the readings for the quiz. All in all, this course has worthy takeaways for both native and foreign speakers of the language of English.

This course managed to deliver the introduction to journalism in the most comprehensive way within a short period of time (5 weeks). It gives us an understanding about the roles of journalists, types of journalism, and information about how to write a good article. My only feedback for this course is for the course to provide a chance to practice writing their own articles with their own topic of choice to be assessed by others. This would give a chance for students to both implement and measure their understanding about journalism not only theoretically but also practically.

El curso es excelente y muy interesante, con un buen balance de textos y videos. Las asignaciones en video resultan desafiantes y es parte del buen aprendizaje. Sólo podría agregar un comentario que puede servir para mejorar, no estuve de acuerdo con la evaluación de los compañeros en una de las tareas de la unidad 2. Una de las personas que me evaluó tomo su decisión en función de si le gustaba o no mi propuesta y el objetivo no era ese sino si era o no noticioso. Por su evaluación bajó mi promedio y eso me desanimó bastante. Del resto, todo es positivo.

Really good course, especially for absolute beginners in journalism and people with modest English language knowledge. It is a nice reminder of the basics for everyone who hasn't practiced journalism lately and a great refresh of very basic journalistic lingo and grammar even for more advanced people. To be honest, I was left with the impression that the course will tackle a bit more complicated topics, which is the reason I don't give it the top score.

Very informational and helpful. I learned so many new ways to express myself and about the world of journalism. There are a few things that bugged me though. On a few of the videos the color of the wording was a bright neon yellow and I found it extremely difficult to read what was there. I wish you had the option to write the message rather do a video recording almost every time. Journalism isn't solely about video, it's about the writing as well.

Well, I enjoyed very much taking part of this course. In my opinion the contents were just grate and according to my English level. Nevertheless, what I would like to have is the amount of hours dedicated to the course writen on the certificate. For this reazon, in my case, this will be my first but also my last of the on-line courses through coursera.

This course really has given me a lot of knowledge with which so many people can benefit. My only concern is the speed with which the lecturers were talking but if it was for purposes such as proper and clear communication and giving time for students to take down notes, then I am okay with it. This course is the base and it needs to be taught everywhere.

It's a course of very good quality, but personally I wanted something more challenging. I believe that since there are advanced version of texts, there should also be advanced version of tests in order to make people like me work harder. I would also like to see more peer-reviewed assignments, these are very good.

Excellent course for beginners wanting to know about Journalism and its English usage. It is a crash course without details but a fine introduction to various forms of journalism. On a personal note - good feedback would have added more value to this course. Overall, it is a good course.

It was really insightful into the basics of journalism in English. Would have liked a bit more challenge on the assessments and that the teachers intervened on the grading process, being all peer graded might not be the best option to continue to learn and correct mistakes.

Relevant material, well planned course, linguistically fitted for different levels of English .

The assignments are challenging but it would have been appropriate also to receive a final evaluation by an academic, in particular in article writing.

The course will be interesting for those who don`t have specific knowledge about journalism. The vocabulary is rather useful, but sometimes very simple. The teachers are great - I didn`t have any problems with understanding! Thanks a lot!

Very helpful course to learn the basics of Journalism.

I personally already know and speak English, but I found it very friendly for non-English speakers.

Thank you to both teachers and everyone behind the course.
