good course, however, it was almost impossible to figure out how to do some of the assignments. I have no idea how to do PDF files. Although, I learned some of the key concepts easily.

I like the way what we have learned in this course. The material, concepts & professors. The only issue is with the platform, in the referenced reading, we have to buy all this books?

I used this course to stimulate my thinking about urban and regional planning in anticipation of applying for a Master's in the field later this year. I was re-acquainted with ideas I was already familiar with from my undergraduate coursework and was introduced to new concepts along the way. I especially enjoyed getting the chance to practice my research and design skills using the internet, historical records, government websites, and Inkscape (design software) for the course's assignments. Though this is not a technical course, it makes for a great (re)introduction to the field.

The best ice cracker course, which could be pursued even by a person who has little or no knowledge about architecture and city planning. I would suggest to keep the lectures regularly updated,since there are also lot changes could be seen everyday in terms of design ideas, people's approach, construction material etc.

Prima Fascia, I take this opportunity to thank all three wonderful tutors and instructors for such an enriching study-course. The course is well- structured to make one realize how urban planning is an important tool and science that which is the need of hour for the world. My experience has been very enlightening which made me rediscover the city to which I belong. I wish they come up with an advanced course in the same regards. Thanks.

Thanks a lot,Although I have been working in the field of urban design for over 15 years, I have learned a lot of different things from this course.

I think content is too long, it could be better summarized... and some of the lectures has a voice that makes us turn back to listen again due to don't understandable words and phrases. Usually I take a short time to finish courses but this one was the first I subscribed and I could just finish months later, thanks to the absence of dynamism, sort of "boring" methodology if you compare to other courses of coursera. Stefan is a lecturer who is objective and speaks 'understandable', the others we know that are authorities and pretty intelligent, but the classes are not good.

An amazing course for architecture and design students, with par excellence professors. The course delves towards urban design providing great insights to reading and analyzing a city structure and design process.

Interesting course showing the complexity and enormous task of the responsibilities involved to accommodate to the well-being of millions of people. People, being a most difficult and stubborn species to please.

Except the peer review system, i liked the course.
After all, a student from one country cannot judge the situation of a city in another country.

A great review of Urban conceptions that need to be addressed in our modern society not to mention the reflective material provided as the course looks at historical design conceptions that can help the modern urban planner reconsider options and ideas that may solve the challenges of cities today.

Theoretical content does not overshadows practical aspects of the course, so it interesting to learn (from start to the end). Great value for your time if you want to learn variety of aspects associated with City Design.
