Very instructive introduction to news creation. The course is well structured, practical. The information is presented clearly.
I needed a brush up, and this class provided that in a clear, concise and engaging manner. Thanks for this!
I took this course because I'm a scientific researcher who struggles in writing good articles to convey my research. I used to not really know what would be a "big deal" enough to publish an article to tell other people about, but this course has helped me break that concept down and make my research less boring to read. It gives a very good framework for what makes a good newstory and how to write concisely as to hold the reader's attention and be relevant overall. Thank you for this course!
