A simplified course that targets areas of business writing which most of us tend to oversee. In this era of digitalisation and information overload, this back to basics method was really refreshing.

This course was short, poignant and mindful of our busy lives, while teaching us all how to be more impactful in our writing. This is just what I was looking for to give me an extra edge at work!

Good info that is useful to a general audience. I enjoyed what was taught and I liked having a refresher of what makes a good written document.
I'd encourage the team to work on creating a better video. Some issues with white balance and editing. Also,, try to use the in-video quiz feature of Coursera to test people's knowledge.

A good guide to writing, with basic tips and methods. Easy to follow. It does not provide anything I would consider to be High Impact rather just the essentials to good writing.
Disappointingly for a paid course not all the resources were available as links were broken.

The course was satisfactory. But in a course on Business writing, more examples of emails, letters, etc would make the course better. Anyway, I will work it out from third party sites. But I feel, embedding them in the course itself would make a better impact.

This was a brief and helpful course on the basics of business writing. Explaining the topics as precise and brief modules made it easier to learn. The reading materials provided were very helpful to revise and practice the topics discussed in the modules.

I found the course, despite its length, to be very basic. Perhaps best suited for individuals with no experience or whose native tongue is not English. I did not find it to be "high-impact", but my expectations may have been different.

In this course overview it said I'd now how to write a press release by the end but I didn't learn that. It was mostly focused on grammar, word-use, tense, etc. Good summary, but I don't feel I have higher impact writing after this.

Very helpful tips for preparing a professional business document. Hoping the course could have more focused exercises to make sure learners actually master the skills.

The content was good but practical applications and writing practice wasn't involved. Not sure how much I will take out of this course and apply in the real world.

The content is good but the course tends to get very monotonous with time. Maybe including some hands on work would make things more interesting.

The overall content was clear, but the week 2 quiz is super confusing and I tried three times. And one time trial in 8 hours is a bit annoying.

Good. Overall it is basic, speaker could talk faster and in general the course could move a lot faster. Room for improvement.

Content was very good and educational. The presenter seemed knowledgeable, however not engaging or charismatic.

Good course but a little too theoretical. Not enough examples. Can increase the number of attempts of quizzes.

Add extra contents like templates, so that it would be easy to get an idea about how to write letters exactly

This course provides a good overview of type of business documents but lacks heavily of hand-on practice.

Course materials are alright, but the tests are either too easy or too confusing (speaking of Week 2).

Could be more in-depth with better info-graphics. The module notes are repetitive with excess slides.

Trata-se de um curso de redação normal, não há uma abordagem maior sobre redações de alto impacto.

Nothing really innovative
Sometimes not so clear ( i.e. revising and editing)
More examples needed

It is well explained but in my opinion is quite repetitive and too long
