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.

'What is news?' is a part of course of Become a Journalist: Report the News! The traveling through this first course is good easy. Not too much of pressure and burden. It will be good for participants to have multi-way thinking ability to know practical answers whenever doing quizzes and assignments.

It was a very benefical course for every student who studies Journalism or for the people who works as a journalist. However, what was taught was very basic. So I would like to have more practical training or study more examples from any kind of journalism.

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.

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.

This course would be a little underwhelming on its own, but it works great as an introduction to the 5 course series.

The course is quite interesting, but I have not given it a 5 star because the quality of some videos is very poor.
