Your basic run of the mill course. No interactivity between professor / staff and studnents. All matterials are lectures, with power point presentation. While I was able to learn from this and did pick up a lot of writing tips I didn't know before, I didn't feel motivated and engaged enough in the course to attempt the essays.
Watching the videos pretty much provided all the practice I felt I needed to grasp the concept. The weekly 'homeworks' gave extra practice, but the grading system made them very difficult to gauge.
