Well it is Project-Centered as it says. I have one problem that here lot of other links to website is given to get more knowledge on the subject, which should be taught by the instructors. They should make small videos for each thing they say. By giving some blog link does't really help all. But great learning. Thank you

Having peers grade you, and them not taking it seriously was annoying. They also didn't leave any constructive feedback, so I just re-uploaded by final email and now I got a 10/10. Otherwise, the structure was good and I learned some new things.

This course is extremely basic. Its planning is best summed up: “Just show them a memo, have the participants write one, and boom, success!” That one small, peer-evaluated exercise is not worth the fee.

This course is generally pretty basic. While it does provide useful information & a few good tips, I feel like I can easily find most of them on the internet on my own.

It's very simple presentation for the topic. I believe that coursera is a Professional site for learners. So , I don't think people who visit this site don't know these basic rules. I mean what is to, CC, subject or stuff like these. I thought, the course give us more specific materials that we able to use when we write an email, for example, inside of the mail what rules we have to consider or what words or Word structures we should use.

Very difficult to navigate, this is the first course that I have taken where there is no interaction with the instructors. I imagine for the sake of saving work for you the grading is done by other students that are also in the process of learning. I guess you are making a lot of money with little effort.
