TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO THE DIGITAL ADVERTISING LANDSCAPE
An excellent overview of all the aspects of digital advertising for people outside the industry and even people IN the industry (ahem), covering display/video, social, mobile and search advertising.
Very insightful and great as a first course of specialization, however the Programmatic part was a bit convoluted and I had trouble understanding half of the material about Programmatic.
I think being more clear on the fact that the discussions are key to finishing the course would be helpful. I had to go back through and respond to the questions. :)
I really enjoyed this course. The material was digestible and clear to understand. I only request that there be more information leading up to the trade desk module.
