TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO DIGITAL HEALTH
The content was great and the videos are awesome. Great professors. I would have like a little less reading with more focused reading. It is hard to read scientific article from home.
Thank you, Doctors Felix, Lisa, Julia, Alpha, and Ibtehal for the wonderful course. I learned a lot from you and the course materials!
This is an interesting course. I found videos and readings interesting. The completion of quizzes also keeps the motivation up.
