Very good course, made me really think again. The professor is very clear on his explanations and he also made the course smooth and funny, which helped on the learning process. Highly recommended!
I found this course very challenging as I find critical thinking very difficult. However this course was extremely rewarding and I will be taking the other three modules in the Think Again series.

The course is overly theoretical with little real world application. This is the reason I lost interest.
Videos cut off before the end and would instantly start replaying from the beginning

I am not too fond of the examples used

A lot of "okays?' Interesting class
A bit boring, sometimes confusing.

Pretty heavy on the linguistics
This was a strange course.

I learned a lot about arguments. However, I feel that it was at times very confusing and difficult to understand. There was not enough practice to learn how to apply the theories and concepts of arguments. It was as difficult as taking a Math course without tools for practicing the problems of the concepts and theories. Also, the instructors should refer to other Cousera MOOCs that make learning material easy to recall and fun such as Mindshift (from McMaster University) ; Learning How to Learn (from several partners); Positive Psychology: Resilience Skills (from the University of Pennsylvania); Psychological First Aid (from Johns Hopkins University); and the Science of Success (from the University of Michigan). The professors who teach these courses make it so easy to understand the material and remember it. I have even gone back to review these courses and recommended them to my family members. I will not recommend this course. This MOOC was the first MOOC that I had problems with. I had to take the final quiz more than once in other to pass it. The presentation of the material needs to be improved. This explains why lots of people are not taking the course.

Not what I was expecting at all... Rather than being called "How to understand arguments" this should be called "How to understand what IS an argument and what parts it is made of. This "course is very theoretical and doesn't really explain how to spot fallacies, shortcuts etc, or how to construct a good, clear argument, which is what I expected from this course. So maybe I just took the wrong class, but to be honest I am disappointed with the time spent and what I've actually learnt.

Not what I'm looking for. The instructor chose a way of teaching that is not to my entire satisfaction with lots of joke-like prompts and too many details that make a simple explanation too long in my view. No wonder he extended the courses in four parts. I do not agree in making things unnecesary long in order to achieve more. I am dissapointed and I'm therefore unenrolling from this. Good luck.

A very long training course compared to the same quality of training courses and training materials is heavy and not commensurate with the distance learning system, where the goal is the speed of information arrival and the reduction of materials so that it achieves the goal with the largest segment of recipients

In my view, this Course is meaningless. I could pass the final test after completing 1,5 weeks instead of 4. I still can't understand which is the aim of this program. Nevertheless, the teacher is very smart.

So difficult. why it has been developed, when persons are not getting achieving it? the course should be not so difficult either not too easy.

Curriculum design did not meet expectation. Lectures too long and taking a test after each lecture became tedious.

This course should be named (Think again : How to use logical fallacies).
It is full with logical fallacies.
