This was very interesting and detailed oriented learning experience, giving insights towards the overall design leg strategy and components of creating a design led customer driven value proposition.
The course material was well packed and perfectly delivered. You would feel like is classroom-based. I think customer journey mapping should be included. Overall it was interesting and insightful.

The course is a very good introduction about the exposed subjects. Even better if:
-Use more examples when explaining principles. The course ends up very superficial and theoretical even with the cases used they just talk about things but they haven't shown any real example. It would be much better they show real examples of each section (persona, MVP, prototype, canvas...)
-Lots of links from the reading materials are offline
-Most of the links are not very useful and from good sources. I'd expect more resources as the one used in the first week from HBS

The course covers an interesting topic, but its format could be improved by providing more visual content (not just videos of a professor lecturing), providing greater insights into design thinking, and reducing focus on the mandate managed by Sydney University students with SwissRe & UBank (this could have been the content of one video, as added-value for the course participants is not very high).

Good insights but I felt short on more visuals than just talking and explanation. Design thinking is all about hands-on, so I was expecting more of this rather just concept ideas. Nevertheless, it has some insightfull information.

Good overview of the design thinking process, but despite the title, it is still very focused on digitization products. I was hoping that there would be more comparing and contrasting with established strategy frameworks.

Course videos are weak. They do not use support materials as graphics or images, just people talking,

The course fails to connect fully design thinking/principles (which is what the case studies are about) with design strategy. It also relies too heavily on talking head videos as the sole medium by which to communicate ideas with limited additional reading/resources.

The material is a bit old and this format makes it really easy for people to slack off and cheat.

This course is extremely basic and isn't really worth your time. The weekly assignments aren't challenging nor highly revealing and the whole course could've been summarized in a single week as part of a bigger one. The final assessment is the creation of a Business Model Canvas which isn't really explained in the lessons and you could just Google how to make it if you've never seen one before. The main instructor Eric Knight barely appears in the course and all the lessons are provided by Dr Carla Harris; this is actually the only good thing about the course since she is very well prepared and knowledgeable. Still there are way better design thinking courses in Coursera so check out those before because sadly this one isn't worth it.

This course is a beginners Design Thinking class. Thus, the description of the course is misleading. Concerning strategy, the only focus is on the Business Model Canvas. The case studies are limited to financial institutions.

Monologues instead of didactics; could be delivered as Podcast ;-(
No suitable, accompanying learning material
