Doesn't waste your time with long readings etc; gets to the heart of what needs to be learnt with short 5 minute vidoes, discussion prompts and small quizzes. Readings and lectures are carefully chosen.

This course did a great job of talking about innovation in the context of healthcare. While it began by focusing on innovation and invention, it finished with focusing on diffusion and adoption of the technologies which is sometimes more difficult. I enjoyed getting to read the different perspectives on the forums throughout the course. This course helped me better understand how innovation within healthcare can change greatly based on context.
