Very good because it is taught about all the basics of journalists. Various case studies also train me to be able to think more with the mindset of a journalist. I highly recommend this class.

I liked that it focus on new media, however I missed some text material to support the classes. Some minor mistakes on the exercises still need to be fixed. Some videos could be better produced, but the content is very good and I understand that it is also intended to be view on cellphones, so it was good.

I really enjoyed this introduction to journalism with lecturers from Michigan State University. I really like the video lectures as well as the added readings. It makes it feel like I am a student without needing to be at a campus. The videos are great! Each lecturer gives great explanations in such a short video making it easy to absorb the information. Highly recommend for those who definitely want to take the route of a journalist.

+ Good introductory course, interesting to-the-point information, good links, vivid, well-structured and motivating presentations, especially by Ph.D. Lucinda D. Davenport, Instructor Joe Grimm, and Sports Journalist in Residence Joanne C. Gerstner.

+ Clear, pleasant voices, perfect video lengths, and availability of transcripts help the learning process.

- The course needs updating. It would definitely be worthwhile to do so.

- Please check spelling and other mistakes in the transcripts.

- The evaluating standards are too polarized: either perfect (33 points) or wrong (?) 0 points. This isn’t too helpful neither for evaluating nor for understanding what one could do better…although I think I understand why this way of evaluation has been chosen.

Overall: Very good course. I learned a lot; it definitely sparked my curiosity.

This is a very thorough introduction to what news is. It’s part of a larger certification on journalism but could be easily done on its own if you wanted a sound overview of what news is. It covers the types of news and provides an introduction into generating and refining ideas for news articles. Finally, it strongly emphasizes the principles of journalism which includes a very good assignment on considering ethics in journalism. When you look at that, think like a journalist by asking questions about each ethical scenario, as the possibility on how to approach each one is layered.

I really recognize the quality of this training. Very well structured, well documented with case studies that guide the students and allow them to understand the current challenges in the profession of journalism in the age of social networks and new technologies: the basic principles of journalism are real pillars on which to stand in order to properly document, collect and share true, verifiable and complete information in its community. Thank you for Michigan State University and the entire teaching staff. Well done.

It was an excellent module, essential for anyone who wants to start or improve their writing nowadays. Important to understand how to develop a story / news, respecting the good practices of journalism, in addition to the structure that a story / news should have, especially to hold the reader's attention / involvement. Thank you for the course and congratulations to those involved in the development and availability of the content.

I like that this course starts from the very basics. It can be difficult to jump into a subject with which you are not at all familiar. The resources mentioned in this course were also very helpful. The only thing I would suggest is that the spoken content does not always match the content that appears on the screen during the video lectures.
