It was great!! Having no experience in this subject made me think it is hard to learn, but frankly to EDX it was easy to understand. My uncle runs the family business and i hope this will help him too! Thanks to the instructors!!

It is more for entertainment than for education for me, and I don't think the certificate will weigh much either in the industrial world, but I may watch it again in a normal speed than x1.5. Do hope it would be helpful for someone else.

Content - Great course material Instructor - Great job in presentation. The distractions were very entertaining, I feel like I want to go through this course a second time. I will definitely recommend this course Provider - The 'Next' button should be floating so that I don't have to scroll after each video.

This course was more useful than I expected to crate my company: taking into account factors that I haven't noticed before. The subject that cleared more my mind was Planning Business Logistics

Sometimes the acting out gets too confusing and its completely unnecessary. I believe this method of teaching is common in the US but not in other countries therefore it becomes annoying and confusing. It would be best if we could ask questions and have a chat or bot reply. It will help us understand better certain subjects that are not our strength.

Easy to understand, direct to the point and good to start with as a fundamental. In the beginning, I thought this would take a lot of time and going to be like school boring lectures, but the opposite this course was a valuable, enjoyable and great amount of information. It takes me only 3 hours to finish the course! which is something amazing from my view of point.

this course have been of great use to me because it enhanced my knowledge which i got from books and teach me to implement it practically out of the box. the course let me know that before going to any field, the idea is must and it is the main and important part of any business because we cannot just ignore any idea as it might be of great use to us. after that i learn implementing the stages in any business towards any successful business.

Excellent course!! Very engaging and informative. The assignments required a careful consideration of the concepts taught and were pretty challenging and at the same time interesting also. I feel that the links/references of some additional readings can be provided as a part of the course. Overall an excellent course.

Overall amazing, the only challenge I see is that even though I completed the course it says incomplete. Probably this is happening since some textual pages needs action triggers and there is no action triggers there
