Who is this class for: This class can be taken by learners at all levels, and should be easy to understand for 1st and 2nd year undergraduate students. The materials will be divided into three tiers, allowing you to choose how much you want to engage with the topic. At the Learn level, you will watch videos and complete quizzes. At the Engage level, you will be asked to do some background reading, answer reflective questions and participate in discussions. At the Go Further! level you will be invited to complete more creative tasks and presented with a range of further readings. You can choose how you want to engage with the course and each particular module, and can mix things to best suit your learning style.

Well explained by all instructors, easy to understand and even entertaining.

This course is really well put together. The lectures are easy to follow and explain all points very clearly. I appreciate the supplementary quizzes to help me cement the knowledge from the lectures. The course provides tons of extra resources, so that you can entrench yourself in the learning as much as you like--or you can just follow the lectures to learn the essential. My only recommendation would be to add more in-video questions.

Excelente curso, debemos lograr que cada día sean más los humildes intelectuales, de esa manera cambiaremos nuestro mundo.

It was my first Coursera class and I liked it very much.
