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.

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.
