Well organized, video lectures help with understanding the readings, and assessments are reasonable. I loved the flexibility of working on it when I could while still working full time.
I learned a lot of great information but the lectures and videos are kind of outdated. It would be great to have some more information on sustainability from the most recent decade.
The course was comprehensive and presents deep insights to all concepts on sustainability. Thi s course really helped me in understanding the basics of sustainability in a lucid manner.
A well thought and curated module which covers all essential aspects of sustainability. The course conduct was well designed and the examples and cases presented gave further insights.
