In the videos you should apply the visualization tool to explain ideas further, they are purely verbal and can get to be boring. There should be an assignment for each concept to fully understand the design thinking tools.
It is too vague ; The lack of interaction and assignments don't help.

I would appreciate more practical cases with the detailed methodology that were applied. Also I will love external resources to study and examples of design thinking applied in different types of industries

The first few modules where the basics are covered are much more useful than the final modules, where things felt more like promotional vehicles for their books and services.

The subject is very useful. But the way it has been taught --- it felt that the instructors were reading from a book. I am specially surprised because these courses are meant to be for an international audience, many of whom do not have American-English as their primary language. There were so many references to America-specific phrases and cultural concepts!

The course videos are well made and insightful. Except for the very end there are no quizzes and assignments. This misses out what for me is a vital part of the learning experience, regular feedback and reflection.

The course is pretty uneventful. I have done some courses from other universities, which are more interactive and fun. But the content is great!

I wish the subject was bit more clear. I felt i lost direction in between the lectures about the main goal of the lecture.

Very interesting course. I will apply it in my daily professional and personal life.
I would have loved to have some more material, but I totally understand that when talking about innovation it's not that easy to get materials and videos.
Very easy to follow and it totally catched my attention from the beginning. Many thanks.

The topic is really good, but the course does not cover the tools or methodology detailed enough. It is too high level and not many examples or assignments.

I did not find videos appealing. The course was boring and not interesting. Although I do like the Design Thinking approach I did not enjoy this class.

The concepts presented are interesting however the exercises / homework is not very useful to understand and correctly implement the work.

Only a very basic and general introduction to Design Thinking

I can't say I really enjoyed this 5 week course. The flow itself was more like "food for thought" where a bunch of ideas are presented as sort of an intellectual gymnastics exercise with no point really. By week 5 you are just plain bored. The content wasn't concise enough. It could have easily been a 4 week course or even shorter had they not tried to belabor each topic. It all was too high level and never really got down enough to earth. I have done other courses on the same topic which were better put together.

I needed good knowledge in deep of the different phases tools and workshops to be able to run them myself. This course is only an introduction + companies examples that sometimes are not bringing value to the course. A bit disappointed !

I did learn something, but it was a very very high level introduction to design thinking. The examples of the application the tools were not very easy to understand and the final assignment assumed that everyone would have applied design thinking tool in their work.

I thought that the course was helpful in learning about the concept of design thinking, but it was all theoretical. I didn't feel that there was much participant engagement, and I find this to be an outside motivator that is helpful to me in online courses. Theory wise, I thoroughly enjoyed the class, I would just wish for higher engagement.

Could have been better. I learned some of the basics of Design Thinking. The best parts were the Case Studies that were presented. They were interesting and showed the benefit of using Design Thinking. The parts with the most opportunity for improvement were the final exam and cutting out some of the pontificating guests speakers from industry or other schools that really added nothing to the course.
The final exam was not clear to me on the expectations and is really not practical. It was unclear to me whether we were supposed to use a Design Thinking Tool on a problem we were facing, or to share where we used it in the past, or to reflect on how we could have used in the past? Using on a current problem isn't practical, would take too much time, and it would need to be dumbed down to the point no confidential details are being shared. If the assignment was to share where we used in the past, I wouldn't be taking the course as I would already have experience with Design Thinking Tools. I chose to reflect on how I could have used DT tools on a past problem for the final exam. Clarifying the approach in the final exam or changing it completely is recommended.

I expected it to have more slides / content than videos of talks.

It is not even a proper introduction course covering the various tools available for design thinking. Need to improve on the breadth and depth of the course in order to make the course useful or enable the students to apply Design thinking in real life scenarios.

Good introduction to the topic but there are no hands on assignments to help you build skills. The capstone project is a reflection paper.

Good Step description, poor description of tools, no testing at all.
It should be more hands on, and may be more practical. Some videos were too long. No quizzes for following up and capstone was really poor.
Reading the book is way more useful than attending this course.
Week 4 learning launch class was the best one.
