It was an extremely informational and interesting course, especially in the times of COVID-19. It helped me better understand what is happening in the world today regarding to pandemics and epidemics.

This course is very enlightening, and educative. The teachers break down each concept for easy assimilation. It's an important course all health related professionals need and I recommend it strongly.

The content was good but the mode of delivery was not really great. Many videos had no content especially the intro videos and the instructors were clearly seen to be reading from some device rather than teaching. But the optional resources were really good. Could have been better.

A very interesting course and a good introduction to the topic. Would be beneficial if one could gain official credits or points towards an online degree with an expanded/more in-depth course volume.

This course is good; but not the best. In some videos, the instructor was hard to understand and I had to turn on closed captions.

Most of the lectures were very short. I would have preferred more in depth discussion of the topics

The course is outdated. I was expecting something timely and relevant to today's COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the theories still hold but the focus and examples should be updated to incorporate the lessons we learned and are learning because of COVID-19.

75% of the course is amazing, the rest needs some work. The course feels as if its target population is lower-level undergraduates or the general population. Would love to see more advanced graduate level content included.
