Swayam Organic Chemistry Course. Nirmala Chiwadshetti Review for basic organic chemistry course by swayam app As an AI language model, I am not able to provide subjective opinions, but I can provide objective information about the basic organic chemistry...
This online course was really good. The work load was just enough..and To be honest that is nothing I disliked about the course.. definitely I will be taking a another online class from you. The experience of this class is nothing but positive.I will say I learned quite a bit in course... The assignment and test were very beneficial to the entire learning process..the test and assignment made me think and search for answers and one benefit for me is I'm pursuing biochemistry so it is useful for me...the class was very detailed and organised. Over all, I found it effective.
sir, your lecture videos and text materials explained the concepts in a very nice manner, we are able to understand the concepts very well. and the text materials help us to answer the assignment some of the crossword puzzle questions are moderately hard. we can able to learn the concept easily.
Really useful for me to learn the basic concepts through your lectures. You really doing a great job. Just a small request. It will be more useful if you still explain the concepts in the way we can understand easily,especially the terms we are new to.
I find this course to be useful and it helps me alot to improve my knowledge towards organic chemistry and I've learned a lot of new topics and deep knowledge in basic concepts. And I find the e-material to be really standardized..
It would be great if topics were covered more detailed. Videos are short it is good as it is quite time saving.
This course provide more information about the subject in a exact time which we learn in a particular way.
