The content that is covered seems to be good, I believe I can't really give a non-biased opinion on that because I don't know much about project management, but I learned a lot in those terms. I think the audio quality could be improved and the slides could also be improved, too much talking while looking at a slide that doesn't have many guidelines can be hard to keep up, I'll come back to this course surely and it gave me a good foundation to start a project plan
