It was a good experience to learn online. This course increase my knowledge an i gain new concept which are very helpful for me and guide me in this field more. thank you

Overall Course was good, I had gained enough knowledge regarding the basic of spectroscopy. This course is worth for the chemistry and chemical background students.

Some of the answers were wrong in the week 3 quiz and I'm pretty sure I got more answers correct than were actually awarded marks in the final quiz. The content of the lectures was very informative and well put-together. The lab sections are inspired by genius. Thank you Prof. O'Malley and Coursera for the provision of a very good course - all things considered.

I enjoyed doing this short course. The presentations were good & at the right level for me. I particularly like doing the lab quizzes. They were just right.
However,there is a problem with some of the answer in the quizzes. I must admit, I cheated on one of them by taking the advice offered in a discussion thread & opting for answer A several times so I did well but feel a little chaste. Clearly some of the answers given are not correct & they are pointed out in the discussions. I enjoyed doing the final quiz but again I'm quite puzzled by some of the answers given. I shall look out for more courses offered by Manchester Univ. This has been my second course and I've enjoyed both. Thank you for filling my day.

I guess it would have been the best course if more details to some topics was added.

I suggest to add Raman spectroscopy also to this module.

Me gustó el curso, lo disfruté y aprendí. Sólo me hubiera gustado ver más al profesor, como en una clase presencial, y no sólo ver las diapositivas explicadas por él. El material del curso es bueno, y los cuestionarios realmente te ponen a pensar.

Some of the questions had wrong answers in the system and hence the actual marks shown is not reflective of the exam. Please see to it that the system has correct answers.

Great course. There is a good room for improvement. May be a more numerical problems could be added. More exercise problems could also be helpful. I hope the team at Manchester University continues developing the courses like this. In sum, really great course. helped me fill some gaps in my knowledge in spectroscopy.

I have previously taken an Analytical Chemistry course but it has been over 8 years since I took it. The pace of this course and its contents allowed me to pick up where I left off. My only concern is that there are questions in the quizzes and exams that are not found anywhere in the lecture slides. Thankfully I saved my old Analytical Chem textbook and was able to reference it. Also Week 3's quiz has some bugs in it that several of the students complained about where correct answers were scored as incorrect.

the course is great, but if you add mass spectroscopy part, it would be better. Also, there are a technical problem in week 3 and final exam in marking certain questions where the system marks it wring although it is right.

This course helped me understand the spectroscopic concepts in a simpler and a more easier way,I found interesting will solving the practice problems and the quiz.This course is really helpful in analyzing the structure of the organic compounds using spectroscopic techniques like IR, UV and NMR spectroscopy.
I would like to thank Mr.Patric sir for making the concepts easier and simpler.

content too simplified which covered most fundamental knowledge but hasn't associated with many questions in quiz.

There is a lot of theory for spectroscopy which i was expecting, for example in UV/VIS spectroscopy there are rules to measure the maximum wavelength value of the compound based on conjugation and pi bonds. Also some of the tutorial questions were abstract which were hard to get the solution without additional information. But a good source to recap vital concepts

I was kind of disappointed. Before this course I had done about half a year of spectroscopy as part of labs undergraduate chemistry at community college, and we hadn't really done any UV other than mentioning its existence. I took this course hoping to refresh and improve my spectroscopy skills and learn UV before I transfer to University. Sadly, I found the course to be extremely cursory at best. Perhaps I was just looking for too much. Maybe Manchester will offer a sequel? If so I would enrol and check it out.
I also found the course to be rather understaffed in that when I tried asking some questions on the forums it took weeks for even another student to reply, much less an instructor. In addition there seem to have been several wrong answers on the quizzes, as well as typos such as 106 instead of 10^6. Although the staff has addressed a number of this issues I am still waiting on a correction or comment on the final quiz. Since I paid for this course, I would like my grade to reflect what I have externally verified is a correct answer.

Nice overview of the field but poorly written exams, focusing on technical minutia.
Even worse, some problems are not solvable based on the knowledge given in the course.

A decent qualitative and quantitative intro to UV/Vis, IR, and NMR spectroscopy. The lecture videos are little more than the instructor reading the slides, and coughing. The slides are a good intro to the material, but you can probably find better videos on youtube. Though this class give you experience in solving some quantitative problems, the quizzes and final have many mistakes in the answers which have not been fixed despite many posts in the discussion forum.

I really did not like the way the professor was explaining. There was no story to it, no proper narrative. He may be the expert in his field, and I salute that, but there are many less knowledgeable people who could explain this much better. I wanted to quit the course many times, but I am not a quieter. If you are new to Spectrometry, I do not recommend you take this course. If you already learned about spectrometry and want to take this course to brush up on the basics (like I did), do not waste your time.
The saving grace of this course are lab spectra that you are given to interpret at your own pace. Great exercises! Absolutely loved them!
