I would like to thank Professor Dr. Padmini Ma'am for explaining the content in more simple and easy way. Wish I could have spent more time on the course module and actively participate in the discussion sessions. However, I really enjoyed learning few concepts in simpler way.

Content: Material- videos, case study, xls templates, handouts, even crossword puzzle- all of them are of very high standards, as expected from IIM! I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience. It was designed well for beginners like me with the right depth. I particularly appreciate the effort made to keep the material interesting to a wider audience, as per the concept of MOOC. I loved the inclusion of characters "Clever" and "Trigger" to make it sound seamless, engaging and sometimes funny too! Interviewing the real life users from different backgrounds at the beginning and the perspectives of an investor and a CEO throughout the course are a big value add for me. Instructor: Padmini Mam has a calm demeanor with a smiling face which I could relate to as if I am facing her and taking the class in person.

I loved the inclusion of characters "Clever" and "Trigger" to make it sound seamless, engaging and sometimes funny too! Interviewing the real life users from different backgrounds at the beginning and the perspectives of an investor and a CEO throughout the course are a big value add for me. Instructor: Padmini Mam has a calm demeanor with a smiling face which I could relate to as if I am facing her and taking the class in person. The webinars added the element of reality which is otherwise hard for an online course. The videos on Accounting by an accountant's way was extraordinary. I guess those were not part of the syllabus originally, but when people go the extra mile to add value, their dedication shines through. Provider: I guess this is about the EdX platform. I'm very grateful to this platform for bringing invaluable educational content from around the world to everyone for free. I have couple of improvements to mention. 1.The discussion forum text editor needs to be fixed: I had trouble typing values with $ sign as it was read as special formatting character. Formatting a reply with indentations and newline are basic to make our response readable. One needs to get used to the editor to get their desired format with a little bit of effort. 2.Discussion forum posts: Categorizing and subsequently finding a newly added post was a little bit of trouble too. I think these are minor glitches and could be fixed in no time. Team IIMBX, edX, Padmini Mam, Madhu and the students who came for the videos... all of you guys ROCK!! Wishing you all the very best and hope to have more such interaction in future!

The course is amazing and really helpful, such kind of experience one may only get working, but not at the university. Most of all I enjoyed vidoes where the instructor showed particular figures in financial statements, I felt like I was seating at the same table, discussing the statements. But as I joined the course while it already started a couple of weeks ago, I had to rush and do all the excersises quickly. If I knew the course would last longer, I'd watch some videos several times, because they are really interesting. The same with analysing financial reports of different companies. I did not have much time to look through them. Overall, thank you for prolonging the couse for one week, the material is priceless!!

This is my first course at the EDX platform and the IIMB Institute. In fact, it was a wonderful lesson in terms of scientific material, form, and style of the professor. Thankful to all of you, I will study in others courses.
