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.

The course is a well thought and masterfully set of lessons on the main principle of journalism: it talks ethics starting from maybe old concepts that surprisingly are still fitting today.
Being a basic course, it is very easy to follow and finish. Quizzes are alternating between very good and very bad. Tough ethical decisions and a space to discuss them is a really great thing, but peer grading two phrases essays with only the ability of telling yes or no doesn't make for a good use of the crowdsourcing the very course is advocating.
The videos seem to have been made with an indecent knowledge of the technology, especially for journalists who are supposed to use it daily; green screens were used so badly as some parts of the professors "spark white", and slides are often cut away and put back in view while the teacher is talking about it, which was downright infuriating.
It still qualifies for a very good opening course in journalism, but needs serious improvement.

A little bit to basic and some informations are useless beause they are part of the common knowledge. I also find quite a few technical issues when trying it in the first termin.

There some technical issues with this course:
the assignment and preview is not working! makes it impossible to complete the course.

I feel we are learning between student, is a big lack of intervention from the University crew in the discussion forums.

This course needs updating to reflect the significance of online journalism more. Certain content needs more depth

It is a good introductory course, but the technical aspect for this module is bad...

Great introduction to the basics of journalism.
The course would really benefit from real moderation though, too many people write empty assignments, that really makes me wonder about the value of having the same certificate that they will get, despite actually putting the effort into it.

There must be some selective sorting for the peer-reviewed sections. Some folks are not coming close to addressing the prompts.
Staff are incredibly arrogant bordering on aggressive. The very worst of the pontificating profession - and what we long term learners and educators know to be all too common. I couldn't stand it so I stopped. Would never recommend.

Poco relevante y superficial
