Enjoyed speakers, prefer a more interactive approach. Fundamentals and strategy thought provoking principles identified and allow for innovative ideas. Enjoyed the course, thank you.
It is a wonderful course, providing the very interesting methods in disease screening and implementation. How to evaluate a screening process is also learned.
Very interesting course but work needs to done on the language component which was sometimes very confusing. Some really good Powerpoint presentation work.
Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
What will I get if I purchase the Certificate?
When you purchase a Certificate you get access to all course materials, including graded assignments. Upon completing the course, your electronic Certificate will be added to your Accomplishments page - from there, you can print your Certificate or add it to your LinkedIn profile. If you only want to read and view the course content, you can audit the course for free.
