The team of instructors shared their individual styles, perspectives, and areas of expertise each week as they made MANY resources available to us for learning the material, and applying it to the weekly assignments. They offered NUMEROUS videos, meet-ups, and online texts to meet our personal learning styles and levels of expertise. They lead us to use visual media with our writing as we learned more about writing rhetorically. Ohio State University created a website to supplement coursera. It was marvelous for encouraging better peer reviews. I had dropped a half dozen coursera courses previously, because the peer reviews were so disappointing. I put hours of work into giving my classmates respectful, constructive feedback, and received short, cheap, sniping comments. This was still an issue with this course, but much less so. The instructors also offered "Level Up" challenges for people who wanted to approach the week's topic from...

It was marvelous for encouraging better peer reviews. I had dropped a half dozen coursera courses previously, because the peer reviews were so disappointing. I put hours of work into giving my classmates respectful, constructive feedback, and received short, cheap, sniping comments. This was still an issue with this course, but much less so. The instructors also offered "Level Up" challenges for people who wanted to approach the week's topic from different angles. They put us in the discussion forums during the first two weeks with assignments that were like "getting to know you" exercises. The discussion forums provided the feedback that I needed. I didn't realize that I longed for and really needed it. I discovered that this feedback made my writing grow like it was on hormones. The assignments turned into online publishing opportunities, and lead to the connections that many of us continue today, several months later. The discussion forums continued to be active for some time after the course ended. They didn't close them until 8 months after the course ended, and students had reliably replaced them on other platforms like email, google+, wordpress and facebook. I have enjoyed writing as long as I can remember. Now, with more confidence than ever, I enjoy sharing my writing.
