A really good basic course that will give you a fundamental understanding of conducting local/urban research. The videos are self-explanatory and informative, gives insight into actually putting your research ideas into practice. However, I feel the last part of the course, week 5, is a little hectic to get your work reviewed by others. Secondly, I am not completely convinced about peer-reviewed evaluation, because different people have different levels of understanding and processing ideas. I would like professors linked to this course to give their final feedback on the work.

This is a very good course for researchers at all level. I sent my professor the link to share with his students who would be writing their thesis. The modules were adequately explained by the instructors.

The course was very informative; however, in some sessions, the instructors failed to communicate their points clearly. Including more examples could be helpful.

A useful course, but too much dry methodology, I would like more various interesting examples of urban studies. Also, the final task seemed rather boring.

course not clear, missing definitions for main words, example used aren't clear ... too much videos, I prefer some text were we can read a study and try to analyze it during the course not just in quizzes ...
