I'm not a teacher, but you don't need to become one to enroll. It has thought me so much as a student. Emotional Intelligence is an important life skill, and this course is an amazing starter kit.

Timely reminder of concepts I know but am lax on applying. Supportive content that further equips me for emotional success in myself and my students. Provides tools for reflection and application.

W​hat an incredible introduction to SEL and the RULER framework for students. I work with kindergarten children and this course has helped me reframe my interactions with these little people to teach them valuable life skills that will last their whole life. Thank you so much for sharing this to the world!

Great opportunity for learning whether you are a teacher or not, I took the course as a HR professional. It applies the same way for employees as it does in many cases for students. I do wish I would have paid for the certificate though. I did not know you could not do it after the class was over!

Very much enjoyed this course. It's well-laid out, science/data-based and delivered in a well-balanced variety of learning modes (text/video/graphics/articles) I recommend this course to all educators, parents and anyone working with students in an educational setting.

Absolutely loved this course! Highly recommend it to all who are dealing with others and really want to find more about even themselves! In my opinion giving yourself and others to PERMISSION TO FEEL- is one of the best support we can give each other as fellow humans!

Driving teams within current context demands new skills, in this sense Yale University provided two great tools as Mood Meter and RULER to support ourselves and those for who we care about to master the ability to make emotions work for you, instead of against you.

I am really impressed with Yale's Center for Emotional Intelligence and what they are doing to help students understand their own emotions and those of fellow students. I really appreciated the exploration to understand my own emotions and responses as well.

An excellent, free offering for educators wanting to expand their own social and emotional health (as well as that of their students). Pair this with Dr. Brackett's book, Permission to Feel, as well as the Mood Meter app for additional learning and practice.

Another helpful and informative course from Yale and Coursera. You have helped a lot of individuals who are incapable to learn and understand the field of Psychology. All sections provided were beneficial. Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us!

I have already had some training in RULER and emotional intelligence but in this course, I found some concepts that I hadn't seen before. It is just to pay close attention. I even shared with colleges during the course.

A well-thought out class on emotional intelligence and social-emotional learning. Even if this is just for personal use, it offers a variety of ways to become more aware of your emotion needs, and that of others.

a very well structured course that gives practical highlights for social emotional learning and managing emotions. Mood Meter is a great application to use. I start to use pausing and coregulation more than before

I learned a couple of value added lessons from this course. Emotional judge vs emotional scientist and how to prepare to approach someone with emotional distress without judging and good follow up questions.
