Great course! I will most likely continue to take this series of courses! The professors/teachers are great, and can help when needed. The courses are simple and easy to use. Overall, great course!

Excellent course material and good learner participation. I think a stronger instructor presence will round it off nicely (even if only in the forums). Great presentation Mr Grimm!

I am still taking this course and I am really excited to take the other courses in the specialization. The topics are covered with in- depth analysis and I am very much satisfied with course content.

I liked that it focus on new media, however I missed some text material to support the classes. Some minor mistakes on the exercises still need to be fixed. Some videos could be better produced, but the content is very good and I understand that it is also intended to be view on cellphones, so it was good.

very engaging, and has shown me that credible content and engaging content do not have to be seperte from each other.

The course is quite interesting, but I have not given it a 5 star because the quality of some videos is very poor.

Material is great, and have submitted everything early. Just waiting to be peer reviewed and have people to peer review so I can finish this module completely.

This course is to the point the lessons are designed so that they can be accessible and they're broken down into smaller pieces so that they're not too much . the exercises are interesting since you have to keep in mind what you want to do with journalism yourself. They help you to organize this idea you might have in your mind or think about it.

The course is great for beginners into the filed of learning to be reporting. I am happy i signed up for it though it was a bad time at work to focus on the course but I did. I look forward to completing the remaining courses required for specialisation. Thankyou coursera and the Michigan State University for the opportunity.

As a guest writer for over 2 years and writing 70+ articles, with no prior formal training, I found this to be very refreshing to understand key concepts of journalism, especially on fairness, accuracy to promote credibility.

This is a good course for those who not only beginners but people who written before and want to hone their values and concepts in journalism.

'What is news?' is a part of course of Become a Journalist: Report the News! The traveling through this first course is good easy. Not too much of pressure and burden. It will be good for participants to have multi-way thinking ability to know practical answers whenever doing quizzes and assignments.

I enjoyed this course. As I stated in my review of the second course, the instructors need to make sure the prompts for the peer-graded assignments match.

This course would be a little underwhelming on its own, but it works great as an introduction to the 5 course series.

5 stars for information gathered in course, but only 3 stars due to the slow peer-grading process. (Average of 4 stars). I did enjoy the quality videos and the passion of the instructors. I took tons of notes and have a lot to pass on to my students. The course was wonderful, but Coursera needs to update how they handle the peer-review process (quite tedious with minimal helpful feedback).

A little bit to basic and some informations are useless beause they are part of the common knowledge. I also find quite a few technical issues when trying it in the first termin.

The course is a well thought and masterfully set of lessons on the main principle of journalism: it talks ethics starting from maybe old concepts that surprisingly are still fitting today.

Being a basic course, it is very easy to follow and finish. Quizzes are alternating between very good and very bad. Tough ethical decisions and a space to discuss them is a really great thing, but peer grading two phrases essays with only the ability of telling yes or no doesn't make for a good use of the crowdsourcing the very course is advocating.

The videos seem to have been made with an indecent knowledge of the technology, especially for journalists who are supposed to use it daily; green screens were used so badly as some parts of the professors "spark white", and slides are often cut away and put back in view while the teacher is talking about it, which was downright infuriating.

It still qualifies for a very good opening course in journalism, but needs serious improvement.
