The content of the course was good. Lectures were effective which iincluded joint discussions. . I especially liked the last statement after every lecture "where ever you maybe have a great time"

This course is really helpful. I would recommend it to my friend to learn how they can improve their communication skills at workplace and can be a good employee and a great manager.

Simple course structure, easy to follow. I like the main instructor. She has a personal and friendly style. I like that the course includes advice from experts from different organizations. Interesting analysis on DiSC too.
I was just very frustrated about multiple broken links, blocked content and some outdated materials. These resources need to be improved. Going through the resources and fixing links do not take that long. Presenting outdated content doesn't look professional either.

Course was a little less indepth than usual for Irvine... and short... and one of the speakers lacked verbal communication skills; she was awkward and it distracted me. None the less, some great information that really helped me grasp a better understanding of how to grab the attention, and to communicate with, busy managers and directors. Also to manage conflicts better. Thanks, Coursera and UCI 👏 I went ahead and got the book recommendation Listen Up!

Tests are not clear when it comes to answers. The answers are based strictly on the reading material and examples provided therein. Not on actual knowledge gained. Many questions were closer to "what example did the text provide" referring to a specific sentence in the text. In addition some of the links to required reading are no longer working or the article is behind a login window. Moreover some lecures seemed more like book advertisments.

I feel this class would have been more effective if ALL the necessary information was given in the modules, with the required readings offering support, rather than the other way around.
Many of the readings required a subscription, so I didn't have access to them. One of the links to an article led to an error message.
I think this class is appropriate for people with little to no experience with video conferencing platforms.

While the course materials themselves were very useful, the quizzes didn't feel like an effective test of the material and consisted of very few questions, which didn't leave room for error (especially problematic because some questions were subjective).

Kinda disappointed that in a course about Communication, Margaret can be such a "so-so" communicator herself. Except that, the course is good and offers some cool tips on how to deal with that new ways of communication that we must deal of.

Some of the Content were good. But I was expecting to learn more about how I can improve my communication style instead of being bombarded with examples. Also, most videos were hard to hear. Volume and Clarity is an issue.

Contents are not very organized and not in-depth. For example, many readings in "communicate with manager" section are general communication tips. Also, some outside readings requires membership of the websites.

This course is a basic intro to communicating in the workplace. While the class contains some good advice to help old-school organizations move into the world of virtual offices, it doesn't offer much that

The extra/outside content provided is great. As others have stated, but clearly not adjusted, some of the quiz questions aren't clear items covered in the material (which is frustrating).

Less required reading and more targeted lectures would make it great. It often seemed that the questions in the quiz weren't properly covered in the material provided.
