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.
I really enjoyed learning all of the different parts dealing with Journalism. I thought that the videos and the light reading made for a great learning experience. Thanks, Denise Shannon.

Great course for an uninitiated. Inculcates well the different branches of journalism, most important take away is the Ethics that you learn a journalist has to follow. Not only does it moulds us within ethical framework but also helps to judge the news content and journalists around us and hence, filter out shoddy piece of fiction that gets circulated in the name of journalism. Great first step towards the new dynamic world of ethical News.

5 stars for information gathered in course, but only 3 stars due to the slow peer-grading process. (Average of 4 stars). I did enjoy the quality videos and the passion of the instructors. I took tons of notes and have a lot to pass on to my students. The course was wonderful, but Coursera needs to update how they handle the peer-review process (quite tedious with minimal helpful feedback).

The course is great for beginners into the filed of learning to be reporting. I am happy i signed up for it though it was a bad time at work to focus on the course but I did. I look forward to completing the remaining courses required for specialisation. Thankyou coursera and the Michigan State University for the opportunity.

'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.

Material is great, and have submitted everything early. Just waiting to be peer reviewed and have people to peer review so I can finish this module completely.

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.
