Overall the content is good, but a lot more can be improved by using a teleprompter rather than adlib speaking. If what to be said was prepared in advanced:

+More clarity in the content

+Less time to consume/More concise

Maybe consider hiring a news cast director for all the lessons. Thank you!

considering the argument, it should probably be more concise and better structured to be as unambiguous as possible. Introduce more definitions and clear associated explanations and less story telling.

Very lengthy videos. The content is great, but it would be nice if it were presented in a more concise manner. Videos were hard to follow. Peer review assignments were nice.

The content is very rich but it lacks real time example while explaining. If the content is explained via example and in more visual aspect it would be easy to grasp.

This course is mostly intelligible and somewhat organized, at least compared to the following course, Process Management.

Course is very focused on production environment with little context or application within a services environment. Quiz questions are very detailed and involve minutia as opposed to focusing on broader concepts presented in the course. The inventory module is very dry with specific focus and use for those professionals who wish to pursue a procurement focus in a manufacturing environment with little use or application for those interested in a broad understanding of inventory and the impact on the organization. By far the least enjoyable course I have completed to date in the iMBA program.
