An excellent, professionally prepared course. Very informative. Different aspects about the organ donation procedures, that are always grey areas in people's minds, are well covered and answered.

Everything I know about organ donation will come from this course. I don't think I would have gotten exposure to such comprehensive information otherwise. Really enjoyed the course.

The content was well organised and the videos were quite professional. My only criticism is that think it was bit insensitive when asking questions about religious beliefs in the quizzes (for example, quoting the Quran or saying that all members of a religion should agree with organ donation because some of there religious leaders agree).

The course offers a great knowledge and it is enjoyable and quick. However, your assessments are sort of meant to trick you. They are more like mind games, if you miss on the wording then you are out.

interesting about or donation. Although, it is the 2010s, as I have surprised there was no mention of growing organs using 3-D printers or any futuristic technologies used that would help in organ donation.
