very sound testing in one review

Very sound testing method.

mess right now in one review

The presentation is a bit of a mess right now, to put it mildly.

more robust understanding in one review

", could've easily been combined with the course information in a text document or with "Characteristics of Technical Writing" for a more robust understanding of what technical writers do and how it relates to their writing.)

short animation related in one review

The entire "first week" is background information about the university and instructors, along with a short animation related to technical writing with no commentary that seems like it was made to be inserted into a video but was uploaded alone instead.

simplest possible way in one review

Thank you for introducing such a complicated topic in the simplest possible way.

star less because in one review

1 star less because of the last video that seemed to be a promotion for a certain website, felt inappropriate for such a good course.
