Thank you to Michigan State for providing this class I learned a lot in this course.

Thankyou coursera and the Michigan State University for the opportunity.

You can pass this course without watching a single lecture and that's a travesty to Michigan State.It is full of typos and oversights that could have been avoided if they had once person run through the course as a quality control.

too much

Not too much of pressure and burden.

It would be great if we could have at least one short paper graded by the professors themselves with a limit of words so it wouldn't take up too much of their time.

?In Summery: The content in the lectures are a good but shallow overview of journalism, but don't expect to be challenged to do anything but fill in ovals and regurgitate questions.Not too much to learn here.

feel like

However, there didn't seem to be enough interaction with the professors themselves, and the grading by peers didn't make me feel like I really deserved the grade I got.

The quizzes were also really easy, which again, made me feel like I didn't deserve the grade.
