The Medical Device Module is a bit too short and does not cover enough information in my opinion.

Disappointed by the scope of this course.

Steve clearly has a greater interest/knowledge of the Medical Device market and this is reflected in the material for the Pharma market which was disappointing, especially when the BioPharma market is far bigger than MedTech.

If you want a course on Steve's interest and likes this is the course for you. Wish they could have brought in a lecturer with a more balanced focus, I often find Steve's lecturing hard to follow also.

One of the courses on coursera related to pharmaceuticals, only problem is the audio quality which is very low volume compared to other courses and also there is no devices included. Just the innovation and clinical trials and regulation.

El contenido es interesante, el audio necesita una mejora, se nota mucho como el profe mueve hojas o en general sonidos de fondo. Saludos y si les interesa esta rama de la industria es interesante.

All in all,the idea of the topic is good and informative, however honestly speaking I didnt like teaching method of professors. The video volume was very quite.

Lots of typing/grammatical errors in the quizzes and assignments made it difficult at times to understand what was being asked. The content was fine.

The person who spoke was not very effective and loud and at some points lost track of the main topic even though the topic was very interesting

The instructor is basically reading what's written on the slides. Tests are super easy.
