I loved this course! Extremely useful and hands on. The course instructor was really impressive, both informative and empathetic, both arty and to the point. Totally admired her style of instruction.

Excellent teaching, be aware the meat of this course is in the interviews. If you read and watch them then the assignments are self-explanatory. The discussion boards were however a disappointment.

Good course and interesting exercises. The instructor tackled the course in a bit different way that works fairly well for the course and its content.

Don't shy away from the challenging course material contained within, especially in Module 2. If writing was easy...y'know where this is going.

Really loved this course but the assignment instructions could be simplified. I cut and pasted them then added bullets to sort them out.

This gave me a new perspective on Character and I believe it will help my characters become more true to life than they have been.

Is too bad that for those who can't pay can't be evaluated on the assignments. But the whole course is very good and interesting!
