What I would highlight Arizona (EdX Partnership) Came back after decades away from being at college. And took 5 courses through the ASU program and did exceptionally well, which I found out down the road, I can apply for College Credit through Arizona State University which was amazing opportunity for an old timer like myself to apply for college credit while working for my second bachelors degree at Nazarene Bible College (CO) and my second Associate at Fredrick Community College (MD) both allowing me to apply the 5 classes/16 units towards my general electives. Arizona State University and edX - THE PARTNERSHIP was amazing, teachers were exceptional- THE SCHOOLING AND EDUCATION - ROCKS! Got to learn from some of the best Professors around and a support team that was unmatched. Thanks again ASU and edX.. WHAT IS THE WORD THE YOUNG CATS USE THESE DAYS???? AWESOME!!!!

What I would highlight I'am planning to develop an academic career, so this course is perfect to me, and despite those negative comments, I think that develop writting skills is a demanding and time-consuming task. My advise: just relax and enjoy the journey.

What could be improved An excessive number of subjects canvassed in one day, insufficient time to rehearse all alone to get an appropriate comprehension of the usefulness disclosed.

What I would highlight This course was fantastic and I'm disappointed at the negative comments - it was the first time I'd studied in over 30 years and yes, it was time-consuming but we all knew it would be from the beginning. The teachers were great and always around if we wanted them - I found the Peer Review process very fullfilling. And there was a lot of support from other students - a great course - well worth taking part in.

What could be improved Nothing.

Course programme

Language, and the ability to communicate effectively are critical skills in the global economy. Writing and composition are vital to communicating your ideas clearly. This introductory writing course will help you develop and express ideas effectively for a variety of purposes, audiences and occasions. During the course, you will complete several major written projects, along with a reflection for each project. For each project, you can decide what level of technology you wish to use. If you wish to earn university credit for the course we will ask you to complete a portfolio in which you demonstrate what you have learned. Specifically, you will address what you have learned in the course and provide evidence that you have acquired the skills and knowledge taught during the course. Credit earned will count as ASU’s First-Year Composition course however, it is strongly encouraged that you consult with your institution of choice to determine how these credits will be applied to their degree requirements prior to transferring the credit.

Additional information

Duane Roen Since childhood, Duane Roen has been interested in how people learn to write. Since his days as an undergraduate, he has been interested in how teachers can help students learn to write. His research interests have evolved throughout his career, and he is now most interested in collaborative writing, audience, gender and written language, and professional development for graduate students. He loves to make connections among disciplines, which means that he can draw on many fields in his scholarship—rhetorical theory, composition theory, literary theory, linguistics, psychology, sociology, feminism, anthropology. Because his interest in collaborative writing is more than an abstraction, he has co-authored/co-edited most of his 9 books and  more than 250 chapters, journal articles and conference papers
