I learned a lot from this course. I especially appreciated the narrated lessons with demonstrations of the skills. For the most part, I enjoyed the practice assignments. I appreciated the format: skill progression was simple and logical, I was able to progress at my own rate, and I got regular feedback from quizzes.

I don't know that I would continue taking classes through Coursera, however. I was dismayed by the many errors within the course. There were spelling errors. Often, the image accompanying the step-by-step directions did not match the actual directions. A few of the lessons did not have the proper materials linked for download in the instructions. They were, perhaps, in an accompanying set of instructions/documents offered at the beginning of the course? Still, why not embed all the links necessary to complete the lesson within the lesson? There were so many errors, I stopped reporting them after a time. The fact that they still exist, even though so many people have taken this course, leads me to believe that corrections are never made. I hope that isn't the case, but for a paid subscription, I find the level of error inexcusable.

My second biggest critique would be regarding the lack of help available when I had questions about the lesson. Posting questions on the forum with my fellow students was not helpful. It would have been nice to have an actual person to ask, or even an available help pane that addressed specific content.

Very informative however the videos are too wordy, making it difficult to digest. Sometimes it's too hard to get through a video

Sure it would be best to use the paid version of the app. Unable to complete most of the exercises in the week 4 portion.

I must be completely honest, although the content presented in the course is quite complete and extensive, at the same time, it is not presented in an efficient way so that the students feel excited and motivated to keep doing practices on their own. It feels like you are reading a user manual that is only audiovisual, which is not stimulating. The practice tests are still not loaded so one is still not familiar with the final questionnaire until having taken it, and I must also add that the online version as well as previous versions does not always have all the tools, which is notified in advance, but It would be good to mention it during the videos so that those who do not have the current version do not become more frustrated by not being able to complete the practice in its entirety. Wanting to cover a lot of content but leaving aside good technique is the main reason why many courses fail. As a recommendation, I would like to suggest the application of different teaching approaches that connect the student with the content through a teacher who really teaches and does not just reproduce a script verbally.
