I am very satisfied with this course. It really helped me to improve my writing skills, and I am feeling more confident than I used to be.\n\nAfter this course, I am planning to take up the next one.

This is a very useful course even if you are very good in English . This course helps in understanding the type of sentences, proper usage of commas and perfect ways of writing attractive paragraphs.

Short course but well organize.

It's a good course with some interesting resources. Most of the practice resources use Flash and one of the assignment submissions is inconsistent with the other submission formats. The content of the course itself is 4.5 stars. For me there is one element that I wish had an explanation or somewhere to ask about it. Instead I'll need to search the internet for an answer and hope what I find is correct!

The course is helpful but incomplete. It does not mention dashes and colons. It also misrepresents the usage of semicolons. I have seen the idea of using a semicolon followed by a transition word taught before, but I do not think I have ever seen it done in published writing in my entire life. It strikes me as being pretentious, something to be discouraged.

Good course, although no proctor or supervision at all. No place to go for questions or help.
Please be aware this is primarily designed for non-native english speakers. This was not clear to me when I joined. And although the content is thorough, it is dull and the assignments uninspiring.
If you want to know more about grammar, good (be sure to bone up through, because she assumes a lot about what you might remember from high school and for those of us over 40 ... hmmm).
If you want to feel inspired to write something of value and interest to yourself or others, not so good.
Over all I would not recommend this course or series of courses. And would suggest seeking out a course that has some kind of proctor or supervisory help available.

I had a good time learning new things which are generally not told in your academics.
Thanks to UCI for offering it. Best wishes.

Good videos on grammar and punctuation but not much on writing.

It provides essential information neither about punctuation nor about grammar. I would say it is too superficial. Advanced learners will not gain new knowledge.

It was alright. Thought I would learn more than that, but I'm very thankful for learning about comma structure and so on.

Very good course! All explanations are clear and too powerful for understanding.
Two stars because all tests you can submit if purchase certificate.

In fact the course is fantastic. I'd say that is perfect, but it is not because requires payment to be assessment in the activities.

Poor visual communications, it should be better since it is the only way to follow the course.
Should be nice if the slides counted with a kind of animation to enphatize what we are talking about.

Contents are interesting and useful, even if the course deals with few topics. I think it is too expensive! A good grammar book is cheaper and more complete.
I would not enroll this course anymore.

The class itself is quite good. However you can not submit the Module Quiz without purchasing the certificate, which is quite annoying.

This course is pretty basic. As far as grammar goes, it really only covers tenses and parallel agreement. I'm also pretty there is more to punctuation than the semicolon and the comma, although I didn't realize how complicated comma placement could be!
The professor talks like she's on tranquilizers and it's difficult to do peer reviews when 90% of the class apparently doesn't speak English as their first language.
I learned some things, but this course should really be called "How and when to use a comma". Would anyone really pay money for this?
