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!

Unfortunately I found the instructor of the class hard to follow, the lecture notes were hard to use due to the many repeated slides and meaningless bullet points with no elaboration or examples. The overall quality of this class was lacking compared to other Coursera offerings. Also this course is best suited for someone who is maybe not a North American native or is along time out from their high school education or very newly transitioning to the business world, as most of this information was basic information that most would have learned in high school or college English courses.
Very basic course. Some tips are useful but I was expecting more practical exercises or even a peer-reviewed task. Also, some of the links with additional information are broken. Additionally, my impression is that the course has not been updated in years. The course focus on paper and very little in email communication. And no words about social media.

The lecture was choppy like reading from Q cards that were slow to pop up, and bounced around quite a bit. The visual slides did not support the flow of the lecture very well, and we lacking overall. The course could use more examples and descriptions of Good vs Bad writing in the various forms.

To be honest, I almost hated the first two modules. They're too general and I'd say they don't have enough examples. The quizzes are more about guessing than about real understanding of the material. Modules 3 and 4 were okay
par Kevin S•
The quiz questions largely had inaccurate or unclear answers. Additionally, there was very little substance to this course -- nothing you wouldn't get from an 8th grade English class.

The course does not stand upto its title name. This is a course more suitable for grad students. As a person with working experience, these are the basics I know.
par Kelly F•
Videos seemed unpolished. Instructor referred to resources that were never provided. Seems more like the first draft of a course than a finished course.
par Vinayak I•
An mix of general tips on how to write well mixed with some corporate-specific information. Broad overview, but I didn't really learn anything.
par Tricia B•
I hate to be a Negative Nancy, but the instructor's voice was very monotone and boring. Very hard to stay interested in the course.
par Sumeet M•
The videos are quite useful but if you provide more reading resources it will become more useful in understanding the concepts
par Elisabeth S•
I didn't find this course particularly informative. It was a bit too basic for my expectations.
par Alvaro M•
it's to general. I would like to have done some exercises. Great framework without a punchline.
par Ritika D R•
Very basic. Tricky quiz questions. There seems to be multiple right answers.
Too short and shallow. Worth only for its list of additional resources
Extremely basic. Please put that up front in the course description.

It is a good brush up course but a lot of it was common sense.
par Amy G•
I found the video lectures very choppy and difficult to watch.
par Ardasher K•
The course was very generic and didn't teach that much. Sorry.
par Tatiana G•
Not too interesting, but certain things were useful.
par Leyla A•
Very basic, I hoped for a more advanced level.
par Jasmine S•
It's extremely basic for a writing course.
