I like the course and the teachers. I don't like the peer review because most of the students don't work hard enough on their reviews. I do want the challenge and the feedback.

This course was a great follow up to the first one. Knowing where to go to find sources is very important. I was especially intrigued by the section on crowd-sourcing content.

Helped me get past my fear of "bothering" strangers with interviews.

A highly informative, applicable& easy to follow course by absolutely knowledgeable professors. The thorough, well-organized& engaging course content reflects the the professionalism & the extensive knowledge of the professors in this field. Really looking forward to enrolling in other courses by the same professors & Michigan State University . Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to learn from you.

So far so good. The only thing that I see that can be improved are the assignment prompts. In both courses that I have taken, the initial prompt in the instructions is usually different than the prompt in the submissions.

Overall the course is great, but there was one thing could be improved.

The questions asked after each week were too easy, to not say dumb. I think it could have more difficulty so learners will have to study more and dedicate more time for the course.

The quality control of the course is not very good. Some videos repeat the same take twice. Some questions are misplaced. Some of the peer review prompts are placed as questions for the student, which causes confusion.

The lecturers are very little personal. i.e I dont connect with them so I dont get too inspired and loose motivation with this particular course (not the subject).

I feel a bit like in a sausage machine, yet there are not enough students on the course to review my assignments, or for me to review assignments. I keep on having to go back to, a for me completed course, to see if there is anyone I can review to get my certificate.

This goes for all of the courses in the series, regretfully.

Essential components of any decent journalism course.

This unit confronts some social and legal issues - how to treat sources, interviewing, trust and integrity as core elements in practicing journalism.

Its developing is slow, but gets quite good towards the end. Some great tips and teachings, despite it could have more references to texts or books. Certain quizzes are quite unnecessary, though. I'm looking forward to complete the next course in the series. 7/10.

This was the brilliant course. Being a journalist I found so many new things that I did not know earlier. For beginners and for experienced, this is simply gem of a course.

Sadly I missed one assignment because there was no one to review it ! There's no one. I have 7 out 9 passed, but I can't tell if I passed or not.

Me gustó mucho el curso, aprendí como se deben manejar las fuentes y la información. Es un curso bastante entretenido y las herramientas que utilizan los profesoras son apropiadas para entender cómo se debe desempeñar un periodista o alguien que quiera ejercer este oficio. Lo recomiendo mucho.

The video transcripts are terrible and inaccurate. Who transcribed them? The discussion and exam questions are often poorly-worded and vague at best, and grammatically incoherent at worst. The quizzes are overly simplistic at times, and others don't seem to address the content from that unit. The course is very, very general, and doesn't go into much depth. It isn't rigorous. The "peer review" assignments leave no room for evaluation. You can give 15 points or zero points, forcing you to choose whether to pass or fail your classmate for a mediocre but technically acceptable answer, or an insightful but incomplete answer. The course could be greatly improved if even one of the j-school graduate students at Michigan State simply proofread the content. I'm disappointed, but I need the capstone course to produce some writing samples for my own j-school applications, so I will continue with the specialization. tldr; the course is overly basic and poorly written.
