It was a good course, but I actually had more expectations than what was delivered. It was just some information on singing which was not as organized and progressive as I thought it would be. The assignments could be more related to the material discussed. Just because I had the motivation to complete them, they were very helpful, but most, as I see did not have this motivation so the assignment discussion became quite dull. Lastly, I gave much effort and energy to complete my cover song, but then the actual assignment was not about the cover song itself, but about my reflections on the process. I didn't clearly understand that (perhaps my mistake).

For the first three weeks the use of forus in coevaluation is not good, because i give it 4 stars. I love the course material.

I give it 4 stars because you can only exploit it so much it being online and not face-to-face.

I think it's not that great. The lessons are good but not very clear. The information is quite complete but it is a bit difficult to connect the readings with the lectures. But the one thing I don't like is the fact that the evaluations are optional and the final one it is not mandatory to include the cover and that is so baaad :(.

It's the weakest course in the specialization. The instructor seems extremely talented but unable to explain clearly concepts with clarity. The course feels unstructured and it's hard to follow overall.
