TOP REVIEWS FROM WHAT IS NEWS?
I had a great experience in this course. The instructors are wonderful and their explanations are very simple and easy to grasp and well as interesting!
I enjoyed this course. As I stated in my review of the second course, the instructors need to make sure the prompts for the peer-graded assignments match.
I learned a lot about news I didn't know before I started and that was my goal. I don't agree with peer review process it lacks the expertise of the faculty whom we are learning from.
Very good because it is taught about all the basics of journalists. Various case studies also train me to be able to think more with the mindset of a journalist. I highly recommend this class.
