Course Description

Far too frequently, the people who have the most to say have the hardest time saying it. Many of the best minds in our society, our most talented employees and our most promising students, fail to have the impact they could because of ineffective strategies for communicating their ideas and insights to others.

This five-week refresher is geared toward experts (scientists, engineers, and other technical professionals) and will help them effectively communicate with non-scientists, usually management, to inform organizational decision-making.

Join us as we examine and learn the essential components of communication strategy.

The course is fantastic. I don't even think the other reviews should really be considered, since they ARE NOT talking about the course, but about grammar errors in its description. Of course, typos are annoying, but it's not fair that such an amazing course receives 2/5 stars because of it. So, lets begin this review! The course gives you an wide scenario of the challenges speakers have to deal with and how to do it efficiently: from rude audiences to what to wear, this MOOC brighten your perception of how you should act as a speaker. My main favorite topics were: 1)How to identify your audience type and how to prepare a good presentation to them. 2)Models for expressing your ideas in an effective way. 3)How to conduct a Question and Answer session I'd definitely recommend this course to a friend. It's very worthy.

This was a great course. It gave enough information to enable someone to become a more effective communicator and it did so in a way that was clear and easy to understand. Many of the points covered seem like common sense, things we should know but dont. Its a bit like a missing an ingredient to a recipe that, once you have it, makes the recipe good.

This course is not going to improve your communication skills but is going to provide some interesting points to take into account when you have to make a presentation. They are 'logical' points said in a formal/college/technical way.

Your course description needs improvement. It is too long and has grammatical errors. The third paragraph is particularly troublesome. The ideas are all there but you need to be more meticulous with your written work.

The introductory page has a grammatical error in the third paragraph. Please, with all this education and global power of communication one could at least use correct grammar. It is so important.
