I found the modules repetitive and felt the course could have been shorter, but i did take away some useful tools and it did reinforce some good practices i was already doing.

It was easy to 'complete' the course, but I have failed to implement its suggestions. I think I will have a better idea of what to do once I actually follow the techniques.

Very basic course, and yes some of the things that already many of us know but won't implement. Overall a good course to look into if you have a couple of extra hours.

Good information and advice. I wish it was more comprehensive though. It seemed to just give an overview of each topic discussed. More detail would have been nice.

O curso poderia conter mais vídeos e aulas explicativas. Entrega a proposta e os conhecimentos de forma bem breve, além de ter teste de certa forma muito fáceis.

Some things in this course are common sense but I have found myself asking the question does this email or request have to be completed now or can it wait

It was nice, althought it would it be nicer if this training go deeper on time and work load management techniques, in my opinion it wasn't deep enought.

It's rather a boring course mainly due to the way it's presented. An enhancement on the appearance can add more excitements on learning this course.

Course is very basic in nature. It should be made more intensive catering to the demands of working professionals and increasing stress and demands.

This course can completed within an hour and the main principles or ideas could have been summarised or put in a more concise and precise manner.

Me pareció un curso bien interesante por que ahora ya se como aprovechar mi tiempo que es tan valioso en mi trabajo, estudios y vida personal.

The video lectures should be made more attractive and interactive. Sometimes they feel kind of dull. Otherwise the content is fairly good.

Better to provide real life case study example that shows how people using a particular system can really be more productive than before

It was nice experience, but to be hones I expected more information about this topic and that is the only reason I didn't give 5 stars.

Pretty high level and basic. Didn't dig as deep as I would have liked. It should probably be labeled as a "For Beginners" type course

It is so simple and not necessary to pay for this course. I expect courses that challenge and teach us more. At the end thanks anyway.

It was generally about the things I focus in my life, not a big change happened for me. But may be it is because I am always planned

It was good to review and remind myself of some principles I've learnt in the past, but I felt the course was a bit light on detail.

This was an excellent course, but rather brief. The information was easy to absorb. There is a lot of value to taking the course.

There are some good tools to use, but the information presented it really just an overview and there isn't much substance to it.

Solid Course overall, would appreciate more printable content and summary sheets, some of the media links did not work as well.

This class was more so tailored to those already in the work force rather than those in college, but it gave some helpful tips.

So far, its good and simple, this course is for those who really want to make practical impact in their lives. So far so good!

It's good, however, it is nothing I could not have learned from a youtube video from someone like Thomas Frank for instance

The course content was pretty superficial. Nothing was new to me. Maybe I already knew too much about project management.
