The course was pretty interesting. The instructor got to explain all very clear and fun. I really liked it. It's really convenient when you don't know much about the steel.

It is presented in a fun and fluent way. But It lacks in engineering depth. I feel that this course is designed for 12 - 14 year of age. Or for the people who have no idea how steel even looks like.

The Instructor is grate, but the material is very shallow. Didn't learn anything new. This coarse is not for engineers maybe from people who just want to know what is steel

Course quite good though introductory. But it's now almost a year since I did it and no allocation of progress results. Just comment that 'course is being wrapped up. Results available soon'. Poor follow-up from Provider and instructor

Very interesting information! the course provides a very very basic study of steel. It definitely encouraged me to search more about steel. I love the way that the information is explained. I wished it was longer and had more deep explanations. I was expecting a much more longer course. it is definitely a one-day watch coarse :) But still very interesting, thank you.

This course is as described, an introduction to the history, uses, properties and industrial processes of steel! I have no background in this and took the course just for fun; I got a 93% so must have "got it". I did have chemistry in collage (minored in it)and had recall. This course is chemistry, as other elements were a part of the big picture (Fe, O2, CO2, CO...It is a fun course!

The course stands for its name - an introduction, no more no less. I appreciate the idea of dislocations, because it gives some valuable insight for beginners.

Very nice course, I discovered some new things and really liked it! I not indicate for people with high level of knowledge in Material's Engineering, but for me (low level)was so much good. The instructor is very good and explain all easy, and i could to learn easy too. I recommend this course for everyone who don't know some about the steel. Very introductory, i loved it. I hope see other courses likes this here.

The course explains the subject matter with experiments. The course is designed to get the understanding of Steel to any person even if he/she doesn't have prior experience or exposure to the topic. Overall a very good course.

Very little content; this course is only a brief introduction without any advanced engineering or material science topic covered. On the other hand, the instructor is very good at presenting and the video are nicely structured and well curated. If you are searching for something really introductory, it's a good course.

A little bit simplistic. I was hoping for a more detailed level that would cover different types of steel. Interesting and well taught. Aimed more at high school science level.

This is a great little course!!! Short but full of solid information to give you the basics on steel. I found it very interesting. The instructor was excellent, very clear and concise. The teaching tools were excellent. I would love to see more of these mini-courses. They provide very interesting, useful information and are easy to complete. Well done!!!!.

The content is very clear, requiring no previous knowledge. The instructor is great, he is VERY clear in his short lectures. I had fun with this course, and there is no similar material about steel elsewhere.

Amazing opportunity to learn about steel in a friendly way. I don´t have a technical background but work in the steel industry, so the content of this course was very useful for my job. I´d like to recognize also the level of the instructor and the high quality videos that helped me understand the concepts right away! Thanks!
