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.

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

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.
