A Spring 2014 Who Knows
So easy. A couple of discussion posts and "assignments" (i.e write a fake business email/proposal) and nothing else notable. The work can easily be done last minute without any of the readings. Overall, a great way to boost your average a bit.

Fairly easy. Basically a full version of a PD communication course (PD3). I wouldn't call the assignments "essay assignments" because it isn't too much writing (like max 1 page). +1 to aimango's comment. Make sure you know how to use LEARN and read announcements. Lots of people posting in the wrong board, etc. all the time.

the assignments are pretty easy, and the workload is similar to PD courses. The groupwork is pretty easy, but it really depends on the group, as you are randomly assigned and the course is pure DE. The assignments seem to have stayed the same in the past few years. You might want to avoid the course if you arent very good with computers. There are always tons of people asking questions about handing their assignment in the wrong dropbox, etc. which is pretty sad.

What Finnegan said. Straight forward course (take it DE btw), got an easy 80 with barely any effort placed in any of the assignments except the group one. Exam is worth 30%, but is also really straight forward.

A few small assignments (write a resume, covering letter, etc). Team project of writing a business proposal was fairly easy since it's based on a company you make up and write about (each team member does a section of the proposal).

a few eassy assignments (i.e. write a resume and covering letter, write a press release, etc.). 1 group project (Write a business plan - each person does a section...you're marked on your section as well as overall group project). Straightforward exam.
