This class was tough.
I am not comfortable speaking in front of groups of people because I have social anxiety and thought that taking this course online would help. At the end of the course, the main assignment is to record yourself giving a speech that has to be seven minutes in length minimum, which seems reasonable. My mistake was watching my final product which made me very uncomfortable. I will be retaking this class this fall.
This course did outline some useful tips on giving speeches and how to be more effective.

Advice for students:
Pick a subject that you are completely comfortable speaking about for your final project. Do not watch your final product because you will second guess everything about it.
