This course is well done, it focuses a lot on journalism values and text comprehension. It is a very basic course, so I think it's ideal for people who are not in this field at all. The English language part is a bit too elementary and could be skipped imho.

The course provides a basic introduction to journalism. The approach of teaching using bite sized videos and multiple readings and quizzes are useful to reinforce learning.

I dnf this course as I found it quite boring, and it also covers way quite a basic english level.

Good course but the British instructor's constant lip smacking just got on my nerves.
