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.

Wish I could have more interactions and discussions with other students. Would help clarify notions

There is no reply in the forums. This is very bad. But the course, in general, was very good.

The material of the course is fine, but I'd like lectures to be more structured and precise.

The content is very good, I accomplished my goals in learning more about theory in Qualitative Research. I liked the teacher and explanations as well as the suggested reading material.
The exercises, however, were not that good. I didn't like that all students had to do the research on the same fixed topic, for me this hindered my connection to the research since it was not a subject that I chose to investigate. Also some exercises were not well constructed and I felt like I was just doing them to pass instead of learning something. The exercises' descriptions were sometimes unclear and people didn't know how to do the task, this created a lot of poor and inconsistent assignments for you to review that were mostly for lack of guidance and understanding.
Overall good content but poor job on the assignments.
The subject matter was interesting and useful to me. The reason I didn't rate the course higher is that I found a lot of the lectures hard to follow because the lecturer often wandered off on tangents or ended thoughts with non sequiturs. This made it hard to understand precisely what he wanted to say, which was a shame when we're dealing with nuanced concepts. My notes are full of question marks because, at times, I truly wasn't sure what information he was trying to tell us. I also found some of the assignments similarly confusing in their instructions and structure. I think this could be helped by working with someone outside the field to polish up the murkier parts of the lectures and assignments.

Although I appreciated the instructor's enthusiasm, the videos were difficult to watch due to the instructor moving around so much. I also wish the slides were more clear for studying purposes. The instructions for the assignments was not always clear; in fact, I was penalized by my peers on one assignment for using the format suggested in the extra readings since, I'm assuming, my peers did not read the extra material. Unfortunately, this course was not as good as the Quantitative Methods course of the certificate.

The professor seemed very nice but it was difficult to understand some of his lectures. And his jumping around was distracting. Also, I suggest adding quiz questions through out the lectures to make sure the students understand the information. Something similar to the Quantitative Research Methods course. In addition, I suggest adding examples of what Assignment D should look like. The instructions were not clear to me and a few examples would clarify the instructions.
