I found this a very useful way of getting a basic introduction to qualitative research methods, without just sitting down with some text books. The content was engaging and at the right level for me.
Best course on Qualitative Research.Improved knowledge about the concepts and its application in different steps of research.Thanks to Dr.Gerben Moerman for his matchless delivering of concepts.

good; but not as good as the other modules in the specialisation; the instructions for the assignments are a bit too convoluted, clarity would be added not by adding more information, but by reducing the text.

good course, well thought through.
some of the lectures didn't quite get the message across clearly and some of the assignments didn't quite measure what they intended, but overall i was much impressed, thanks.

Good Course and provide me basic understanding of Qualitative Research Methods.I will be great if course PDF Transcript will be provided as in Quantitative course instead of Presentation Slides.

Teaching method is very good. However, the requirement to do 5 Peer Reviews - I think - is too much. It takes your mind off the things you have learned. Otherwise, the program is great!

It is better than the quantitative one, but the assignments are really really long and the minimum level of 80% on the final and midterm exams is very high. 70% would be good enough.

it was a lot of work and there were some errors and issues, esp. trouble with peer review. the professor was dynamic and encouraging. content and most activities were very helpful.

This was my very first online course. I had good experience with the team, especially our lecturer was really encouraging. You could have asked us to submit the codes we made.

Please provide the complete transcript of a week in pdf format like quantitative research methods?
The slides are too dark (black background) and don't look good in print.
I really much appreciated the course, the online material combined with the assignments. However instructions for the peer-review were sometimes a bit unclear to me.

Nice course, thank you for all your work in providing it! The explanation were sometimes very theory-oriented, but I guess that is normal in quantitative research.

Interesting and very special course ,because of it qualitative nature.Though this also adds the assessment problems.I would give a 5+ ,if not the assessment part.

I prefer the method where there are questions in between the lectures, and a quiz every week. That way is easier for me to know if I'm understanding the lecture.

The assignments were really interesting and I understood everything. However I found the lecturing style distracting so just read the transcripts and slides.

The material is good and the professors quirky way of presenting is interesting to me at least. I'm enjoying his lectures and am able to follow his examples.
Strong effort on the production team. But I don't think mooc is a suitable format for this course. You can only learn qualitative research by doing it.

The course is designed in an innovative way, specially for the assignments. It surely does help in understanding the qualitative research methods

A very good course, although I think there are a couple of improvements that can be made. I flagged a few comments on various areas of the class.
by Nivedh J•
Excellent course, but more concrete examples could help with handling and understanding the very abstract ideas dealt with in the course.

It was very interesting, I learned a lot of new things, lectures could have been a little more focused. Really enjoyed the assignments.
by Heetarthi J•
I really appreciate that all the concepts were explained in detail. I think the course is perfect understanding for the basics.

The course is great! It clarifies so many topics of qualitative research, and also the teacher is great at explaining.
by Aki O•
Interesting course!!! Very time intensive as well but we sailed through. I just bagged a new set of skills.
by Rebeca C•
I give four stars because I wanted more about interviews and ethnography, but honestly, I really liked it.

Passing this course was not a cake walk. But once you pass this certification you will feel satisfied.
