The course is quite comprehensive and covers the fundamentals of financial markets in a manner that makes the subject instantly interesting and engenders curiosity among the students to learn further.

Well, explanations were very good but extremely slow and very dry- in the sense there were little to no diagrams, charts etc. First time learners like me get confused many many times especially considering the fact that I'm from non-financial background.

A course containing a width of topics.

Just that for a beginner level course, it was a bit difficult to comprehend. Also, the course was oriented towards the US financial market, while I was hoping it to be focussed towards the Indian context.

i understand this as an introduction course. But i would've preferred a deep understanding i.e implying the affects of various economic indicators and why one changes when the there is a change in the other. Otherwise it was informative.

Quite okay, can improve on video bloopers and professionalism. Would've liked to see some quantitative aspects of the topics taught or some examples showcasing whatever theories the instructor was teaching us.

The course surely is not an introduction to financial markets. Being from non financial background i had to consult with financial literates to know what the terms were.

Maybe I might have this opinion because it is not my core field but the coursework and presentation was quite boring that's why it took me time to complete it.

El curso no tiene ningún soporte adicional como gráficos o diagramas en las presentaciones o textos PDF o diapositivas para poder reforzar lo aprendido.

this course can be made more productive by a good presentation , better communication skill of the teacher and my adding summary in every weak video

Introduces a very good breadth of topics. However, it needs a bit more depth and graphical explanations (e.g. with the use of actual charts)

The questions are too trivial and poorly placed.

The lecturer is good, but more editing is needed, specially towards the end of the course.

Utilize the fact that it is a video lecture. Incorporate visual aids in the discussion for the students to further understand the topics.

The music at the start and at the end is quite irritating to ears. Please don't use any kind of music again
