Fantastic Class! I have a BA in Journalism and I felt the Coursera/MSU SoJ Classes were indeed tougher and give a much better example of 'real world' than you will find in most class rooms.

A well-structured course, the short video sessions helped in understanding the world of journalism in a brief and concise fashion.

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.

It just keeps getting better.

Each course is a healthy and robust expansion upon the last. My knowledge base continues to expand: My writing in general has become honed, my videos and pictures have enhanced. I am getting more compliments on my presentations.

This course builds nicely upon the last 2 with a focus on how to successfully carry your news and reports to your readership.

As always, instructors are varied in personality, their individual rhythm and cadence is appealing. I feel a deep sense of engagement with the material. The slides behind the instructors are thoughtful and well-placed; bulleting key topics. I felt I was honestly both learning and understanding the material.

I experienced both personal and professional accomplishment in this course. I am signing up right now for the next one.

Special shout-out to Ms Grestner for delivering her contents with strong conviction, which was especially apparent in Week 5 on the challenges of a journalist. Hearing her personal sharing definitely cemented the why and how to retain our sanity as journalist.
