It was a fantastic course that gives a peek of the real-world problems and processes in product management. It was a great learning experience with peer-graded assignments and the graded quizzes.

This is a very interesting course, it shows more on what the client needs and it has had more to my knowledge. Had challenges with my wireframe assignment but with patients and reading more on it, i got the assignment and passed at last. I am so happy to be conquering my fear in becoming a software product manager . Another interesting aspect is involving the clients and clients interaction should be interactive and the team should bring their A game to the table and new innovative that is perfect for the client. I will gladly introduce this course to anyone that is interested in going into Software product management. The tutors are also good, calm and the best in explaining more on this course. Thank you University of Alberta for this wonderful course.

Extensive, practical and digestable. The assignments require some thinking and diligence, but they develop skills readily applicable in practice. I believe it is a good introductory course for an IT project/product manager and for any developer who works within an Agile process. Note: although the course description says that it requires about 4 hours/week for 4 weeks, it took me something about 80 hours to work through this course carefully.

Of all the courses I've started and completed on Coursera, I find this to be one of the better and well-designed courses. From printed materials to links and a decent production, this course helped immensely. Recommend using the printed course notes and making some notations along the way, otherwise, this was great to just be able to watch and learn. Lots of exercises to help in practice, too.

The Course exceeded all previous expactations and was extremely hopeful. The authors of the course very organically combined theoretical material and practical tasks. The course was dynamic and exciting. And I would gladly recommend to anyone who is interested in this topic to take this one for study.

Excellent course! So far, this is the most interesting course I've taken in this capstone. It's almost as if you're working on a real job when you're writing use cases, wireframes, and so on. I had a lot of fun with learning and reviewing other students' work as well.

Although the literature is a bit dry, mainly learning terminology and subtle differences between complicated use cases, the course (and its teachers) explains everything very calm, consistent and engaging. Big recommend to all (aspiring) software product owners.

For me, this was the hardest course, because I must to learn more about how to talk with clients. The U of A training supported me to understand a little bit about the beginning of project management, something unknown for me because my past was a programmer.

Great course content, very well structured notes and very very systematic delivery of video lectures including timely quizzes. I have worked in Project/program/delivery management for over 1.5 decades but still enjoying the entire specialization immensely.

It's quite tricky to complete this course as it provides so much knowledge & some of them not easy to be competent or fully understand. By the way, the course should introduce more about product vision & product roadmap, which are also commonly used today

This Course was very fundamental to building my knowledge based on User Requirement. It gave me a more holistic understanding of Requirement specification, various documentation approaches to Requirement.

Thank you to the facilitators and Resource Team

Fantastic course. I learned very important things. I had trouble analyzing and create client requirements even in real projects. This course has taught me to exact things I needed specially the ambiguous terms. This is definitely going to help me.

Detailed and friendly course. It is one of the first courses to take before moving forward as a product manager because a clear understanding of client needs and knowing how to manage requirements is the root of building the right product.

Teaches you a lot about understanding problems. This course provides the basis of creating a comprehensive thought. Although it is about software requirements, going through this course will help you become a good listener.

It was great! The one thing in the tests - I was sometimes unclear about the question because the wording was vague. I took another class at the same time and did not encounter the same issue.

Thanks - I learned a lot!
