Excellent, the instructors teach in an almost mersmerising (sorry will have to spell check that later) way. Totally fascinated by the course as I intend to write articles in the long run. I was many years ago a commercial photographer, however my pictures seem to tell a story and they are not photoshoped. So its envitable that i could not set the world on fire in that realm, but with the journalism course, I can see a way forward. Joe Grim has to have a mention just simply his saying thank you at the end of each lecture, its not something you see from people these days, then there are some very interesting personalities teaching in this course. I expect to come back and do the full specialisation at the end of this.

Great course! I learned a lot about many aspects of journalism, including how to effectively interview and collect information/opinions and ask good questions. Overall, amazing course and I hope to take the next courses of this series.

I like the course and the teachers. I don't like the peer review because most of the students don't work hard enough on their reviews. I do want the challenge and the feedback.

very good
