Dear NewsU folks:
Please, when you survey people who've taken a NewsU course, don't just ask them to tell you how valuable the course was, also ask them for suggestions on how it - and the NewsU experience as a whole - could be improved. Otherwise it's frustrating, to someone who *wants* NewsU to be a really valuable resource, to get the feeling that you might not want to hear suggestions.
(so then we go and vent on our blogs...)
1) make it possible to search for free courses;
2) show course cost more prominently, so we don't have to click through to find out;
3) offer "scholarships" for the impecunious - or some other way to let them "sing for their [educational] supper"
4) for courses in areas subject to disinformation pressure, e.g. Covering Climate Change, make sure you offer the tools the journalist most needs, to equip them to protect their work from being warped by this pressure.
