Blend of learning elements (talking head video, visual style, microsims, practice exercise) make a difference to the learning experience.
Very crisp and engaging. Concepts/insights shared were presented very clearly. The challenges and practice exercises kept one engaged. For me, the biggest takeaway was challenging assumptions and SCAMPER.
The course is a good introductory course towards creative thinking. The manner in which case studies are discussed is really innovative. In my view, the byte size modules will help the students in better retention. The application of the concepts explained in day to day scenario makes this course effective and Unique.
I loved the structure, the duration and simplicity aspects of the course . The minute detailing of scenario based learning, practice lessons and quizzes helped to reinforce learning and made it engaging. I found the scenarios and the quizzes with points to be engaging and highly energetic. I liked that one can retake the simulation so that one can apply the mistakes and try again. Learnt the concepts of Analogous Design, Challenge Assumptions and SCAMPER techniques in a very engaging way.
It's a great online course indeed which has shaken my existing thoughts about being creative in our thoughts. Most of the techniques mentioned are known to us but we normally don't use it as we don't know or might have not experienced the real power of them. This small course gives us that opportunity and wisdom which could be very helpful in future to become more creative in our life!
The simplicity and brevity without compromising on the quality of content shared. Video lessons by Dr. Pavan Soni were very insightful. The Microsimulation was excellent and very well thought out followed by the explanations. The Checkpoint exercise was good and a very practical way to assess one's understanding of SCAMPER tool.
