Overview of research methods was ease, but clear. Grit research was interesting. But it was a bit messed up because themes of psychology and research methods were mixed.

There were quite a few mistakes (even in titles) in the written content, such as spelling, grammar, etc. which makes learning less enjoyable.

I love the teaching and learning of the course a great deal. Waiting on the peers to grade and that process was not as fun.

I think the material in this course is hard and not very easy to grasp, but the videos and exercises made it doable.

It's a little more nuts and bolts of research that doesn't really interest me as much as some of the other courses.

Great course! Altough, I think a different level of interaction from both facilitators would be more interesting
