It is wonderful course. I found that teaching methodology and exam every thing was perfect. My best wishes are for the Coursera as well university of Amsterdam for preparation of this useful course.
This course was incredibly delightful and very helpful, as a media and communication student, this course widened the information I had and helped me with my home university courses. Thank you!

The course explains variety of theories connected with communication science. The lectures included in the course are great and pleasant to watch. However, in my opinion the instructor gives too many information per minute and it's hard to note everything without spending hours analysing the lecture over and over again. Everything else was great!
par Supitha N•
The course is very useful and interesting! I would definitely recommend this course for someone who wants to know about Communication or to start this field. The content is fruitful but not too extreme. All lectures are concise and easy to follow. However, I find the final exam at the end quite hard, and some survey is not accessible.
par Dudley S J•
The course is an introductory course in the subject. I really want another one which is more focused on the cultural approach, given that we are facing many multicultural challenges in the work environment. Dealing with too much differences could be frustrating. Trying to communicate better then becomes a must. Thank you

I am the student of Communication Science in Indonesia. Before join this course, I have studied the introduction of communication science in the 1st semester of my lecture. But I have still no idea what communication is. This course is so helpful for me to learn the basic of communication.

Very good lecture in selected content and presentation (interesting, motivating, concise and precise).
The course could improve by providing a written script in addition to the excellent lectures, as this would make summarizing the material and preparing for the tests easier.

A lively introduction to the basic theories of Communication Science with a very easy-to-follow approach. I was getting into Journalism at the time I took this course and it has helped me a lot in the acquisition of some fundamental knowledge.
par Arvind C•
Proper crash course for beginners into communication science. Fun and funny at times. Although needs time to unpack most of the information packed in this, still works as a precursor to heavy lifting required for communication science.
par Kadri A•
Intresting and well structured course to give an overview of communication science, inc the history of it. It is not a hands on course to learn something to do but a good introduction course. I did it before going deeper into PR.
par Rong T•
Good course. I would like it better if there are more depth in theories and analysis/examples used in lectures are more reflecting social media and the use of more cutting edge innovation in communication technology.
par Okan Ö•
This course focuses on the theory of the communication science more than the practices. If you are looking to get the basics you can start with this one. Thanks for the course :)
par C M•
Great course, very well presented. I had never really thought about communication in science terms and this course has been very valuable in bringing my knowledge up to speed
par Charles R•
Very interesting course ! Helps understanding main approaches to Communication Science and how mankind perceived the importance of communication through the time.
par Eva A•
I didn't like the fact that you could not earn a statement of accomplishment but only a verified certificate.
Other than that the course was pretty interesting.
par Alexandra F•
The teachers are really great !! The drawings help quite well. The content was easy to understand and enought for an introduction classe. Thanks a lot !
par Tatia Z•
It is a really nice introductory course on Communication. Includes the basic concepts and helps to influence, tools and channels used in communication.
par Tran V T•
This course is good, however, it seems to much academic without practical experiences or exercises for learners to practice skills and knowledge.
par Itziar F A•
It's a good general course on communication science. Now, I'm looking forward to learn more about social media in a practical point of view.
par Kira B•
Helpful introduction basic theories and approaches in the Communication Sciences, which were explained clearly for those new to the field.

Muy puntual y sintético. Cumple con las expectativas. El único defecto es la falta de subtítulos en español en algunos vídeos.
