Learner’s Suggestions/Recommendations:

  • This course is good but it had a lot of typing errors in the summary slides which do not put a good impression.
  • The course offers basics of writing but it does not provide any feedback to the prompts which is quite dejecting. Not only it is dejecting but it also lowers the quality of the course. Similarly, I found the instructor’s own answers to the prompts not as good as they should be.
  • The course had too many unnecessary details which I think the instructors should focus on removing and instead adding something that is actually useful for a learner.

We believe this is the most fun and innovative course that is suitable for anyone interested in writing. The instructors have outdone themselves in explaining all the topics. The engaging examples, the fun writing prompts, and the exercises altogether can help individuals develop good writing skills. Taking this course also helps you improve your writing skills and learning something new in the way as well. Therefore, we can say this course is worth one’s time, effort, and money.
