The first in a six course series, Marketing in a Digital World covers how digital tools like social media, smartphones and 3D printing are re-writing the rules of reaching customers, building brand, and designing experience.

Review:  “I’m about to complete this course and have to say that it’s one of the best MOOCs offered on Coursera.

This MOOC is well-organized, and staff is there to answer your questions and concerns. There have been so many discussions that if you need to find an answer to something, just search for your topic in discussion forums, and I am sure it will come up.

Videos are of good quality and the professor has a good style of delivery. I like that this course combines lectures with interviews with students and experts in different fields. I learned new concepts in regards to digital marketing that I didn’t know before so it was time well-spent!” For additional reviews, click here.
