The subjects covered were less intensive and technical than I expected. Most of the information covered, I was already familiar with from my undergraduate studies. The biggest point of difficulty was the mapping exercise at the end, seeing as the students were mostly left to navigate totally unfamiliar territory on their own with the QGIS software. However, if it weren't for this course, I would not be at all familiar with mapping softwares or how to create content using one. For this, I am grateful to Johns Hopkins for the course.

The content for first 3 weeks is very good. But for GIS example in Week 4 the file structure downloaded from is not even remotely similar to be able use it and produce the map. Let me with a feeling of being incomplete. There is no one to reach out to. The discussion forums are at least 2 years old.

Baseline: did I learn something useful and new? absolutely. But was it upto the standards of what is expected of John Hopkins? No. Mildly disappointed.

Thank you for the efforts you have put in this course. I would suggest that the course will make a much more interactive and engaging presentations during the lectures to help those who learn faster with focus-sustaining visuals.
