Very well explained with lots of practical examples - would highly recommend this course to anyone looking at getting an initial understanding of design thinking and how it can be applied practically.
Excellent program to learn lots of tools towards Design Thinking !! Thanks a lot! Very interactive and the last activity of completing the assignment was very thought provoking !! thanks to all pears!

Appreciate this course a lot, it was crisp and to the point. Major focus was on using Design Thinking tool.
The only downside was the lack of reference material. Course should include the slides that were presented in the video as well as some additional reading material (available for free)

This course taught me a lot about Design Thinking and how it can be applied. My only recommendation is to add more interactive content. The first 4 modules were nothing but videos. There was only one assignment in Module 5. It can be hard to stay engaged when it is video after video.

There was a lot of confusion in the course, almost at all stages of it. It is better to have a detailed flow chart from First to the Last stage rather than just a high-level diagram. Detailed flow chart can have the execution of various tools/techniques within it to avoid confusion.

Interesting course, but the evaluation process should be reworked with weekly quizz to ensure that the main concepts have been understood and a different final exam which does not assume that you already had the opportunity to apply and reflect upon what you have learned

The assignment was a bit of a let down. The feedback provided by peers was not meaningful, often one word responses such as "good". I would have preferred to have more (and meaningful dialogue) around the application of design thinking tools.

Nice introductory class about design thinking. It is quite general though but very inspiring. I really recommend the book as a complementary reading, it helps understand better some methods and processes described briefly in this course.
By Jordan H•
Not very engaging or interactive since it is just watching videos. I wish that there were some exercises using the extra resources like all of the mind mapping charts or brainstorming activities for a grade throughout the course.
By Andrea M•
The course is interesting and may work as a general introduction. nevertheless the lessons and the material made available in form of slides is not sufficient to really become knowledgeable about the presented methods.
By Sam E•
The course videos are well made and insightful. Except for the very end there are no quizzes and assignments. This misses out what for me is a vital part of the learning experience, regular feedback and reflection.

I would appreciate more practical cases with the detailed methodology that were applied. Also I will love external resources to study and examples of design thinking applied in different types of industries
The course, although is good for anyone who wants to take a step towards design thinking, but more examples, theory and detailing can make it better and help us retain and apply the learnings.

The content is very interesting and I learned a lot about Design Thinking. However, the lecturer sounds like she's reading the text, which sometimes makes it hard to focus on what she's saying.
By Dmitry A•
This might have been a great course, if it was called Design Thinking 101. Somehow I expected more of content, frameworks and details. More engagement like assignments would also be great.

The first few modules where the basics are covered are much more useful than the final modules, where things felt more like promotional vehicles for their books and services.

This course provides a good understanding of the DT steps with concrete application examples. However, it requires additional readings to be able to apply this learning
By Juan M B•
En general el curso estuvo bueno para conocer acerca de DT. Me resultó por momentos un poco largo/aburrido, quizás porque da vueltas sobre la misma idea.
By Kaitlin G•
It was good but the professor literally said everything in the book... I felt like I could have read the book and gotten just as much out of the course.
By André M•
I felt it could went way deeper. It provided a very superficial understanding of this subject, could have went in more detail into each of the tools.
By Bianca G•
Good course to provide a good understanding of what is design thinking and its process, but doesn't give us practical experience and cases for testi
By Felipe A C•
The course is pretty uneventful. I have done some courses from other universities, which are more interactive and fun. But the content is great!
By Alexa K•
Honestly, the information was great, however it went by really slowly, and the videos were really long compared to other Coursera courses.
By Adriana L•
It would help a lot if the videos were more dynamic and if some of the explanations are "interpreter" from a different person.
By Karen C O•
Me parece que es un curso un poco por encima del tema.
Se que es nivel inicial pero aún así me pareció un poco superficial.
By Shubham K S•
I wish the subject was bit more clear. I felt i lost direction in between the lectures about the main goal of the lecture.
By GAYKAR N S•
Content is good but some graphics and animation should be added to make it more attractive as well as educational.
