There are a lot of detailed examples for ethical situations to provide a framework for making ethical decisions. A lot of the voice over is just reading from the slides, but they do provide a lot of information for the course.

The information is solid and a good reminder. Much of the presentation is reading from busy slides. I would suggest cleaner slides with more elaboration.

Good summary though it would likely benefit from simplified slides. Often felt like most of the presentation was being read directly off the slides.

Great case studies throughout the course. Relevant, easy to follow and interesting on what could otherwise be a very dry topic.

Good case studies but the slides were cumbersome and instructor basically read off of them. Still, info was easily learned.

I liked the examples. I thought they helped in making decisions on "what would you do" for ethics and morals.
