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.

While the information in the course was extremely helpful, and the examples were solid and very memorable, the quizzes were absolutely atrocious. Many times I selected answers that I had been informed by the course instructor during the course, as a correect answer, and got told it was incorrect, because a "more correct" option was present (despite each option being equally correct!). Rather than being representative of how I understood the coursework, and giving me opportunity to use and challenge that understanding, the quizzes depended too much on knowing what precisely the instructor was thinking -- which reduced passing down to interative guesswork.
The content was worth it, and I have reams of notes. I just can't recommmend this course, because of the quizzes.

Good material. However, the quizzes are short and do not reflect the material well. The quizzes are poorly worded and even looking through the lecture transcripts and those links which are not behind a pay wall or broke, can not be found. Multiple answers are actually correct. You have to make your best guess. Then, you have to wait 8 hours to make your next best guess. Tedious and waste of time. No feedback is given on the quiz answers either. How can you learn the material if it is not explained in quiz feedback? If this was important enough to put on the quiz, an explanation is owed to the student on the answer. What is the point of this course? To teach or to be hard to slow down progress?

Failed to practice what it preached. The course was interesting and pleasantly presented, but failed to apply many of the techniques it promoted. For example guest speakers waffled, in one case 5 minutes of a 9 minute speech was about themselves, and they failed to provide any purposeful techniques applicable in most circumstances. The book reviews did not provide clear takeaways what the student would learn should they read it; several of the reading links did not work or required the student to create an account to access; the estimated reading time was way underestimated; there were no details in the overview how the additional readings added to the course.

I think the teacher was very welcoming, but the content was less than enough to answer the quizzes. In the quizzes, every answer choice was correct and there wasn't any possible way to discern. What the teacher said and complemented with the lectures didn't match with the question answers. So, my score is "2".

The course is very basic. It covers topics like maintaining eye contact and aligning verbal and non-verbal communication. The portion about how to communicate with your manager was somewhat helpful. The readings are incredibly outdated and most are no longer relevant. The quizzes focus on memor

I expected much more information in videos. Instead of that, videos are very short and provide only few information and don't allow us to pass the exams at the end of each module. There are some link to websites where you can learn much more and which are not even written by the professor.

The idea of having support with the videos does not work with this course. Also, the exams do not match at all with the information provided. The anwers to the exams are so relative or subjective, and that's a problem for those who does not domain English very well, just like me.

While the course content was easy to understand and to follow, the quizzes were somehow odd.
I had the feeling they were more designed to make you fail (especially as a non native speaker) than to test if you worked through the course content.

A lot of reading material is unavailable (link does not work or it is behind paywall).
I also found the videos lacking. For example, there were 5 important tips and only one was given, before jumping at next topic.

There wasn't a lot of information inside the video and the test's questions hade multiple possible answer.
However, the links to ressources such as HarvardReview or Inc.com were pretty good and usefull.

the course material, videos etc. were not really compelling - I found myself wandering off in between. I came away with some good information, but I've been left dissatisfied overall.

a nice "entry level" course lacking a forum discussion... was not even able to report some issue with videos and no explanation provided with quizzes results :/

Explanations were too wordy, lecture slides didn't not contain much of the information discussed and the presentation had very little visual reinforcement.

The value of this course is the collection of reading materials that can be found in the same place. The lectures don't add much to the course.

I thought it was going to be good. Did the first week videos and Lectures. But I feel cheated because it will not let me take the quiz to move on without paying for the course. No where did I ever see anything that said ahead you had to pay -- if you didn't want a certificate or to do the whole specialization. Coursera used to be a platform I used and recommended. No more.

Cannot believe UCI have just very short course, compared to san diegi/Duke/Virginia/Copnehagan who have courses worthing thousands of dollars for free as compared to this one. UCI have exception course in objective C which is worth the money to be paid, but this series, are extremely below the expected standard

It very short and brief. I was thinking it will also emphasise and help us to grow our communication skills for the 21st century communication, but it's just a brief explanation of some changes and nothing more.
