Overview

Sign up to Coursera courses for free Learn how

Everything comes together in the Capstone: story, slides and delivery. You will draft a complete script of your presentation. With the advice of your peer readers, you will revise, rewrite, and complete it. Then the same thing will happen with your slides. And finally you will deliver it to a real audience recording it on camera and get valuable feedback from your peers.

We highly suggest not to do a «fake project», but choose a topic that matters to you, so in the end you will have a polished presentation of something that is important to you. Whether it is an idea, a business project, a product or some other complicated matter.

If you are to revise some other work, please, write with an intention to help. Say what a peer should stop or start doing, add or remove from their script or slides.

This course is suitable for those who have a fear of speaking in front of the audience. I have learned in compliance with some other courses from this speciaization (Speechwriting and Storytelling and Designing Presentation Slides) that you can deal with almost any trouble that occurs when you deliver your speech. That's why I love this course!

Not bad. I had some problem with understanding the tasks sometimes but guys in the forum helped me figure out. Oc ourse, it's better to take the courses from the whole specialization. I like the idea of sharing my projects with everyone. Thanks to the creators!

I was afraid I wouldn't be able to afford spending a lot of time on this project because it demands recording videos, etc. but it's okay because it absorbed me and I got hooked on it quickly. Nice course for those who seek professionalism.

It's the most serious course in the series Presentation Skills. I find it quite challenging but it motivates me at the same time. I would recommend it to those who have enough time and are ready to do the tasks in real life.

My colleagues now started this course as well, it's super nice. It helps to develop necessary skills and encourages me to try hard to speak in a perfect way. Thanks, Coursera!

It was definitely not a piece of cake. I hope I will eventually show my skills not online but in real life.

1) good choice of material

2) interesting ideas for tasks

but I would recommend those who just started to finish first at least the course Effective presentation delivery.

All in all, it was a nice experience! Thanks to the creators for this good idea!

To be honest, I was scared at first to do stuff like recording my performance life, etc. but ..who knew it would be a huge boost to fighting my stage fright? Very nicely made, the course is simply designed but not all minds can fit. Seriously, good luck.

This course was good for making my confidence grow. I liked the way the tasks are made but sometimes they need special circumstances. It could be also good to include more materials. But the overall impression is good. Nice job!

At some point I realised there's no place for me to practice my skills at presentation making. But thanks to this course I had this opportunity. Very nice idea behind it.

Nothing irrelevant, simple yet smart. I can finally show off what I know before I boast about it in front of my audience. great course!
