As someone that didn't know anything about marketing, I found this course a nice basic introduction into it and it always managed to stay fresh and fun. It covers the current topics of digital marketing pretty well but honestly doesn't go much beyond that, which I am pretty sure changes in the next courses, but I felt the need to mention it as you are someone looking for instant social media analysis and want immediate feedback, I suggest reading the overview first as this course might not be what you're looking for.

High quality content! The moment I started watching the videos I was impressed with the ease of understanding Aric, the professor. His tone, rate of speech, the way he presents the material, the change in scenery and the bits of entertainment in between, are amazing! Wow this is one the best courses I've done with Coursera!! This course challenged me at times, but in a good way. It really made me think, doing the written evaluations. I understand why it is in the Top 10 Specialization list. Superb course!!

The syllabus is adequate, suitable for introducing digital marketing.
Videos are all right, with a good selection of interviewed professionals. Transcripts are very useful to have under the videos, however, there are mistyped and misheard words here and there. It is useful to see the time needed for each task (video, reading, excercise), though it is nearly always underestimated (even the videos).
Examples chosen for excercises are interesting and motivating. I like this active way of learning.

I really enjoyed myself while taking this course. It has been nearly 20 years since I have taken any kind of classes, and I've discovered that online learning suits me perfectly. I can go at my pace, which is great.
This course was very well done by professor Rindfleisch. Clear and engaging lecture videos, mixed with the right amount of interesting reading assignments and quizzes to help break things up. I even enjoyed the Honors Assignments, as I enrolled in the course for personal enrichment.

The course designed in very interesting manner. It incudes Case Study, Research paper, several business model example , Question and answer, Reviewing peer's point of view ,etc. It was wonderful experience.
By Avadhut P•
It was an enriching experience. i thank the entire team for such an awesome experience.
It was a great idea to incorporate the academic research articles in every module.
This was a great value addition.
The offering may be segmented as a concept based one and a research based one.
The research based module may increase collaborative research opportunities for bot the participants and the instructors. Thus the cross cultural differences may be examined, analysed and published
By Ross B•
Really good. I liked the thought provoking format of the case exercises which made me think deepr about the business aspects and help to show case my creativity beyond the multiple choice answers.
Still surprised to see the amount of plagiarised answers. Ultimately this is nothing related or to discredit the high quality of this course rather an issue that I´m sure Coursera will resolve for all courses as the peer review section should only include relevant responses from real students.
First of all, thank you Coursera and Prof Aric Rindfleisch for inducting me into this program. The course captured the new age elements of digital marketing and it gave me a chance to learn at the latest. What I really liked about this course is the seamless transition from old age marketing principles and how it is now in the present-day world. I intend to apply my knowledge from here in the day to day work goals. Thank you. looking forward to joining another interesting course!

This is my third coursera course and it is my favorite so far! The course is very concise and includes successful and failed cases allowing students to study the marketing strategies under a more holistic lens. For those who would like to learn more, the additional reading materials were also relevant and very insightful about today's emerging trends and news.
I'd definitely recommend this course to a friend and will be continuing with the next course in this specialisation.
By Alex U•
Aric is a wonderful teacher and I thoroughly enjoyed this course! I thought that the case studies and exercises were helpful in giving real world examples of each of the 4 P's, and I especially liked the Academic Insights provided in each module. The readings were relevant and interesting in how they related to the material, and I learned so much about companies, campaigns, and concepts that I didn't know before! Thank you for this course, it was a pleasure being a student!

It was an exceptional course which helped me to understand the progressive digital world in a better way and gave a new direction to my thought about marketing.

Thank you so much Mr. Arin Rindfleisch sir for explaining such complicated topics beautifully and your explanation went always straight in the mind. Thank you Illinois University for this amazing course.

This is my first time studying for myself because I really want to have digital marketing expertise, and what this course offers is really beyond my expectations, it gives me an overview of how to operate. and solutions, as well as marketing strategies. Through lectures videos that are easy to understand, the system of example is extremely detailed and gets right to the point. I am truly grateful to have given me the opportunity to reduce the tuition fees for this course.

I understand, faculty grading would be difficult for case studies in programs such as these. It would, however, be useful if a model response (could be provided bullet points of key content) to to students after their submission, review and grading. While, these bullet points may not be the only right answer, these would serve some kind of reference for students. The other idea would be to share some of the best responses of students. Overall, enjoyed working on cases.

This information was very good and shifted my way of thinking a bit. I have a strong software development background, mostly web. The last few years I do project management. I have always dream of being an entrepreneur. I have a sideline business doing websites etc...but I was to extend this and provide digital marketing as a service to people. This introduction to digital marketing strategies course is very good to get your mind in a specific thinking way.

Great Course! Prof. Aric has done a marvelous job. From lectures, quizzes and assignments all were well structured from learning and testing the knowledge as well. I completed the course covering digitization of markets and learning how digital tools are changing the landscape of businesses globally. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested to learn digital marketing. I thank Prof. Aric for his hard work and Julie for assisting him.
By FURKAN O•
Thank you so much for the course. It would be better if we see the professional answers as an answer key for the case from a large perspective. For instance, I really care about the answers of cases in terms of the lecturer that helps us to expand our perspective. Review Peer's assignment is a good solution for that however it is better to see the answers from the lecturer's perspective after they complete the course. Thank you for preparing this course.

I have comes across various innovative methods in product placement for example where companies are leveraging digital technology to enhance the offline shopping experience. Bonus info that professor offered kept my spirits high. I thanks the instructor, GIES college of business, and coursera for adding great inputs to my learning. You've truly democratised education.

I found this course to be insightful, intriguing and fascinating. I especially liked they way in which digital marketing is viewed and explained as it pertains to product, price, placement and promotion as opposed to typical digital marketing courses. I also liked that the peer views asked questions that required critical and analytical thinking. Thank you Mr. Rindfleisch for imparting your knowledge to me and all the students who took this course.
