I love this course. It's broken down to simple bits which makes it easy to understand. I didn't like the polls that pop up in the videos but that's just a small thing compared to the value I received.
The course was really helpful to strengthen communications skills and I got a chance to learn many new aspects. Thanks a lot for making this course available. I really enjoyed learning something new.

Thanks a lot Mr Ivan Wanis Ruiz and University of Toronto for putting together a wonderful course and offering it for free to people in India during these troubled times. I learned quite a few things through this course. Especially, the final assignment was of the right level of challenge giving the learners to put into practice a lot of things learned during the four week course. That's when I personally larned, how much of effort went into Ivan's seemingly effortless video presentation througout the course. Thanks once again.

I enjoyed Ivan's course very much as it showed me once again where my weaknesses are in public speaking and presenting myself. I am glad that I got a heads up and know the tools how to get better. I absolutely loved the lessons about the 3 communication traps (guilty!), better meetings and how to ask. I will immediately make good use of the information learned in my professional life.

This course was quite enjoyable and included a lot of psychology and marketing tactics that could be used successfully when communicating virtually. Howevver, in general, there could have been greater emphasis on virtual communications, as many of the tactics could also be used in Face to Face communication. Definitely well timed for the Coronavirus lockdown though.

I really enjoyed Ivan's presentation style and ability to break down complex concepts into interesting readings and videos. I would highly recommend this course to any professional working in a virtual environment. I had a couple of minor issues with outdated links or those requiring a subscription to read now and I hope these issues are corrected.

The course videos are really professional shot and the highlights such as important points,tips are nicely depicted. The professor is very convincing and he has a charm of teaching. Really liked every part of it.

For oldies like me grappling with communication in this virtual age, the program is essential. I got educated on many issues: to know and categorize your listeners, how to get their attention, etc in virtual mode. Thanks so much Toronto University for doing this service, free of cost for third world learners like me!

Great cource. The instructor is clear to the point and very charismatic, easy to listen to. He uses all the strategies and provides vivid examples.
THe only thing I could ask for is more hands on practice. The final work was great, but I wish there was more assignments like that.

It was great doing this course and I really like the way presenter presents his ideas. Not for a single time I felt bored during Sir. Ivan's videos. Well executed.
Thanks coursera for putting up such courses like this.

A very good skill to add for upcoming professional and even for those with experience. Virtual communication has become inevitable, it's not future, it's already here. So anybody wanting an edge should do this course.

The concepts and techniques discussed by the professor were very interesting and helpful. Moreover, the practical assignment at the end of this course made the learning more fruitful.

Overall, very helpful and useful - contains many useful concepts like the three traps, Area 47, GOS. I think it would also be useful if it contained an overview of orator skills.

It’s an amazing course to do. One can learn how to communicate in virtual age and how to implement in your practicle life from this course.I recommend everyone to do this course.
by Roman R•
In my opinion that more quizez and other forms of checking the assimilation and memorizing of the course materials should be implemented. The tutor was excellent, by the way.

I enjoyed learning here. The instructor is a wonderful teacher. The course is bulky, I have to learn a lot of things within a small period of time but it was worth it.
