It was very informative, the discussions were lively and brought together thinking around the world and broadened my perspective on Climate Change and its possible effects if we do nothing now.
This course give quite comprehensive learning about climate science and makes you think how can you use this knowledge in your personal and professional domain as concrete action.
Got some new insights!

I did this course whilst working in regional Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately the electricity and internet connections are not that reliable which made the final assignment challenging. Please make it clear the format of all parts of the assignments. I was not expecting to have to submit a video and I am sure if I had known from the outset I would have looked into how to produce a video using basic editing software. Also, there are no prompts to get the discussions going which I feel is a wasted opportunity.

The course was interesting, especially the peer assignments which I found stimulating. The required readings are very heavy but not always indispensable to succeed in the quizzes. In most videos, you can see that speakers are not professional educators and sometimes I wish key concepts would have been more clearly defined. Some videos address too many different topics and should have been broken down in smaller chunks. There are also a lot of repetitions. The ESA videos were actually the best.

I liked the abundance of resources the course provided. It definitely inspired me to dive deeper and continue my own research.
I wish the content was more up to date. A lot of information was from several years ago and some goals/projects mentioned had a deadline in 2020. Since we are already mid-2020, it would have been nice to access more recent data. This was my biggest disappointment. I also didn't enjoy the assigments that much - they were very time-consuming yet not very satisfying.

Very informative. However, there is too much focus on technology and policy, and lacked soci-cultural perspective. WB knows that what leaders / country representatives say are glazed and realities are far different. WB should address this, compel leaders to straighten up, and not just be figures and statistics in Transparency International's index.

Very interesting course, slightly overwhelming amount of information. More geared towards developing countries.

It is good starting point, but some of the articles are a bit old.
