I thought the assignments worked really cohesively with one another. It helped to keep terms and skills in mind from one assignment to the next. The lecture videos were great, short, and to the point.
This was an excellent course. I learned a whole lot about typography. The videos and assignments were interesting and challenging. I'm happy I was able to complete this course and highly recommend it!

This is a nice intro, but it is very historically based, and as I'm more of a `maker`, I felt that I would have rather made more, instead of learning about the past of multiple typefaces. I felt a bit unprepared for the last assignment, which required much more composition practice than what had been taught during the class. The last week could use some more studies of the process to create a typographic poster (the same way Fundamentals of Graphic design focused on the iterative process to build a poster, showing all parameters that could be played with). I find that showing the process is more instructive than showing the final piece and studying it. A good course still, but it could be improved !

Very interesting topic, but even for an introductory course not nearly enough to justify a full 4 week course for € 71!
The first course, Fundamentals of Graphic Design, had more content, more (optional) assignments, and covered Typography, too.

i think some point in the course need more explanation , too much information in little time
i wish that the instructor give his feed back about all the assignments , this will be very helpful and useful , but the course is good and useful

The overall course was nice and helpful. I just feel like the last assignment should have more parts. Like the course should at least one example video on how to design the poster, before giving an assignment on designing a poster.

I learn that typography is much deeper than I thought but some of the theoretical explanations about how readable some typefaces are are subjective and it depends on each individual or what they are used to.

Basic overview of Typographical ideas, terms and so forth. A bit short and not very technical, but playing with Type as an integral part of design was really fun and inspirational.

Instructions for the assignments weren't great. I made mistakes that I would have caught it I'd had some clarification...and I know I'm not the only one.

The course itself is great, however, the comments were not helpful, wrong and downright disrespectful, coursera should pay attention to this problem.

peer grade review takes a lot of time and even when i have submitted the assignment before time its not being reviewed.

If you are beginer, this is suit to you. But if you have experience in graphic design field, this is too easy.

In the first 2 weeks there was no hands-on project, literally nothing exciting just dry material.

Would have welcomed more or longer lectures, and more variety in the assignments.

It was extremely high level. I would have appreciated more content in the videos.

Coursera issue, not the course itself.
Coursera app via appleTV is not compatible despite being available as something to download on that platform. I did work on both appleTV and desktop apps before I realized that the work did not transfer from one format to the other.
Coursera was not helpful in fusing the work so my participation was a bust despite the GREAT quality of the material.

I liked the course and the material, but It was frustrating working with whatever bug plagued the system. Moved and switched due dates, peer reviews not recording. It was a total mess
