Great course

Great useful information to better understand journalism.

Very good module. I'm glad of being participating on this journalism program. The platform is a breeze and the instructors from the Michigan State University School of Journalism have prepared an entertaining and very informative course. I'm happy!

Amazing course - I learned valuable knowledge; how to craft effective interviews, avoid stereotyping, build credibility, what news literacy is and how to promote it, the importance of portraying as survivors as opposed to victims, how to use social media and crowd-sourcing and actually a lot more.

Instructors were succinct, clear, professional each with easy to follow and pleasant cadence. Slideshows during presentations were very helpful. Overall I have come away with a great understanding of how to gather and develop the news in a wide range of situations.

I have signed up for the next course in the specialization. I definitely will be taking all of them, these classes have given me extraordinary value in my skills.
