I was excited to do this course but due to the difficulty of understanding the speaker I am not carrying on. What she says doesn’t always match the text as there are ‘inaudible’ words. She speaks too fast and her accent is too strong to understand.

Well, the course content is very good. However, the questionnaires have much to improve. There are some open questions that do not seem to have an adequate answer. And the english subtitles are not quite good also

I liked the course so much. It was very detailed and I learned a lot of interesting things. The tests are very, very difficult. This was the first course I had to repeat the test more times. I would like to say, that I do not like test where you can´t choose, not that I don´t know the answer, but because you know the answer and the system says - oh, that´s not correct. I didn´t know, where is the problem. You don´t have time to do it 10 times and try - big letter on the beginning etc. I think, that this course has many useful information and I would like to recommend this course.

The worst online course I've ever taken in my life. Could barely understand the Professor in the videos. Her spoken English is terrible. She could not even finish a sentence without any errors. Seriously would not recommend this website to anyone. A complete waste of time and money.

The course was full of valuable information but her accent and broken English was extremely difficult for me to understand.

The course is not as structured and the information is not clearly understandable. I needed to search in Google some of the terms she mentioned to understand completely. In the end I didn't finish the course because I opted to read a textbook from here instead.

Saves me time from watching the video and searching about terms afterwards.

I Think that some of the presentaciones were not to clear. The speaker had dificulties with English, therefore hard to understand. The tests had Lots of wrong answers too. Overall it is a good experience but it needs to be corrected

I'm really disappointed, because as someone who suffers with acne, I was personally interested in what this course had to offer. However, it was really difficult to keep up with the instructor, due to English not being her first language. Not only that, but the video didn't have sufficient editing to at least edit out the parts where she stutters and struggles to say something. This at least would have made it easier to keep up with her. I understand that english isn't everyone's first language and I respect the instructor for speaking it, even with an accent, but some actions could be taken to make the class more easy to understand for those who can't understand the instructor.

This looks very poorly made overall and as though the lady is improvising what she's about to say.

extremely hard to understand. As english is not first language it does not make sense. The transcript of it is also awful too. Lots of contradicting pieces of information - I believe this is due to the language. I am not completing this course.

This course is more comprehensive than I usually expect in Coursera courses, so I highly appreciate this offering as a medical professional-in training. I even think that the contents can be used in an introductory dermatology course in medical school. Nevertheless, casual learners and laypeople will still find the material useful as there are several practical tips well distributed in the sections. Typical of courses from the Novosibirsk State University, the visual aesthetics/presentation of the videos are excellent - obviously, great, intentional effort to generate a MOOC (rather than a typical PowerPoint presentation or a videotaped lecture presentation in a classroom) was invested here. The supplementary content (a special website with further information on the topic) is a nice touch as well.

As mentioned in several reviews, the biggest (yet forgivable for me as I have prior knowledge of the topic) issue with the presentation is that there are moments when it is difficult to understand what the presenter says without or even with the closed caption (that is, unfortunately, often inaccurate). One option that I can think of to address this is for the presenter to speak in her native tongue with the closed captions professionally prepared (rather than through volunteers) in English.

The course was fun and I love the interaction with classmates during the forum. The Video and instructors were very interactive. I learnt a lot and I will sure going to miss this course even though I have completed it. I don't regret choosing this course!!It was just interesting from start to finish.
