  1. Art of Reviewing - Great tips for constructive review!


    This module provides great insight into constructive review where it is important to consider the big picture – and not just find faults!!

  2. A course that delivers!


    The Art of Reviewing course is crisp, clear and comprehensive. It talks about all the elements of reviewing logically, which helped me internalise the learnings of this course very easily. While working as a team, though we are all aware that we are all working towards the same goal and are not in competition with each other, we often tend to lose track of this fact. The first video of this course talks about this from an ID reviewer perspective and it is the most important learning for me from this course. This entire course will help me review other people’s work with more awareness thus helping towards the creation of better products.

  3. Reviewer as a Mentor


    The course material is primarily oriented toward emphasizing two points: the role of a reviewer as a mentor and collaborator and review as an enhancing tool.
    By giving samples for activity exercises and then presenting the revised version based on the concepts being shared with the learners, Purnima has practically shown the approach an ID reviewer must adopt: instead of giving vague, ambiguous comments, there should be clear-cut recommendations as examples/options that the developer can choose from.
    Thanks for capturing and highlighting these essential elements of ID reviewing skills, Purnima!
