A simplified course that targets areas of business writing which most of us tend to oversee. In this era of digitalisation and information overload, this back to basics method was really refreshing.
This course was short, poignant and mindful of our busy lives, while teaching us all how to be more impactful in our writing. This is just what I was looking for to give me an extra edge at work!

Good info that is useful to a general audience. I enjoyed what was taught and I liked having a refresher of what makes a good written document.
I'd encourage the team to work on creating a better video. Some issues with white balance and editing. Also,, try to use the in-video quiz feature of Coursera to test people's knowledge.

A good guide to writing, with basic tips and methods. Easy to follow. It does not provide anything I would consider to be High Impact rather just the essentials to good writing.
Disappointingly for a paid course not all the resources were available as links were broken.
par Deepak J•
The course was satisfactory. But in a course on Business writing, more examples of emails, letters, etc would make the course better. Anyway, I will work it out from third party sites. But I feel, embedding them in the course itself would make a better impact.

This was a brief and helpful course on the basics of business writing. Explaining the topics as precise and brief modules made it easier to learn. The reading materials provided were very helpful to revise and practice the topics discussed in the modules.

The course is well done and the presenter is very clear. However, I wish it had gone into more details regarding reports, high impact words (examples, use), active voice (examples, use). Also, some of the links provided in resources do not work.
par Edita G•
Course was somewhat useful (especially correct grammar part, as I am not English native), but I'd say there were too many obvious tips. Course resources should be updates, for example in week 3 none of 4 links provided is working anymore.
par Elad Y•
I found the course, despite its length, to be very basic. Perhaps best suited for individuals with no experience or whose native tongue is not English. I did not find it to be "high-impact", but my expectations may have been different.

In this course overview it said I'd now how to write a press release by the end but I didn't learn that. It was mostly focused on grammar, word-use, tense, etc. Good summary, but I don't feel I have higher impact writing after this.
par Vera D•
I didn't learn much in this course, most of the content was already obvious to me. It could be useful, though, to people in their twenties who are just starting their career.
I was expecting to learn more, to go over examples in more detail. I learned a few things about emails and business cases. The teacher was nice and the links were great.
Very helpful tips for preparing a professional business document. Hoping the course could have more focused exercises to make sure learners actually master the skills.
par Jennifer H•
The content is good but the course tends to get very monotonous with time. Maybe including some hands on work would make things more interesting.
par SANG J•
The overall content was clear, but the week 2 quiz is super confusing and I tried three times. And one time trial in 8 hours is a bit annoying.
par Harshita T•
Such a course must have a writing assignment which can be peer-reviewed. A writing course without writing assignment doesn't seem complete.
par Priya D•
Good. Overall it is basic, speaker could talk faster and in general the course could move a lot faster. Room for improvement.
Content was very good and educational. The presenter seemed knowledgeable, however not engaging or charismatic.
par Dannie L T Y•
Good course but a little too theoretical. Not enough examples. Can increase the number of attempts of quizzes.

Add extra contents like templates, so that it would be easy to get an idea about how to write letters exactly
par Tanay G•
This course provides a good overview of type of business documents but lacks heavily of hand-on practice.
It was a bit outdated, and simple. Hard to take in information with limited activities/interactiveness.
par Filip M•
Course materials are alright, but the tests are either too easy or too confusing (speaking of Week 2).
par Lilandra D•
Could be more in-depth with better info-graphics. The module notes are repetitive with excess slides.
