Communication at Work reviews
Very informative and easy to complete.
This course is an excellent overview of professional communication.
I loved the class. It was great content and very clearly laid out. The only thing I would have liked differently would be an approximate time of when the grading of the final Touchstone would be available, as well as being able to start another course while waiting on the grade since you can only be working on two at one time.
This course was very simple due to having experience with communicating and being leadership roles at work.
This was an information course with great content! It was quick (I finished it over one weekend) and got easier for me, as the course went on. I would certainly take this again!
Good course, learned quite a bit
Pretty easy and straightforward course, however it took about 2 weeks for a simple touchstone to be graded which took me about 30 minutes to do, that was the only frustrating part about the course.
Brilliant course took me a while to finish.
Interesting final milestone, submitting your own work rather than just answering multiple choice questions. Overall great course, I enjoyed it very much.
Not too bad. You have to use common sense. Answers will not be exactly in the PDF
Super nice class, just email them reminding them to grade your touchstone
I enjoyed this course.
Helpful course and Easy!
Communication At Work was a decent class. If you've done some of the other conflict resolution/communications classes for Sophia, you'll see a few familiar things, but overall the class is pretty easy and you can blitz through it quickly. Be advised that the class does include a written Touchstone component, which means the class will remain open as one of your 2 enrolled classes while you're waiting for the assignment to be graded.
Very nice course! I enjoyed the touchstone since it is a real-life scenario and good practice for anybody who has no work experience yet.
