TOP REVIEWS FROM COMMUNICATING DURING GLOBAL EMERGENCIES
The course was able to provide a simulation on emergency response mechanisms. The reading materials and video lectures provided are engaging and effectively introduces new concepts to a new learner.
I enjoyed this taking this course and found the information to be useful in any emergency, not just global ones. I have already begun using some the techniques and they have proven to be helpful.
It's rather quick and effective to learn the basics of communication in emergency. It could have been more interactive and the activities less repetitive (video and handouts). Overall satisfied!
Effective Communication is a very essential tool in our daily lives especially during emergencies where the right information at the right time is received by the right person.
