This course was perfect for those wanting to explore the world of development, broad enough to include all interlinked themes, with sufficient reading materials to spark one's specializing interests.
Very informative and detailed. Prof. Sachs covers all aspects of sustainable development in detail. Though the course was designed in 2013 hence does not cover the latest development to SDGs to date.

Hi, I loved this course. However I'm a bit surprised that didn't got a certificate for doing it. That's why I didn't put 5 stars.

Some of the links are no longer functioning and thus, gaining access to exact information for the past (2013) is not possible.

If this course there still be on coursera why there isn't certificate.
It is unbelievable that you don't have certificate.

The course is too long. Videos are also too long and are not so interactive so students could get bored.

Great course but content and quizzes need updating. Certificate would be nice.

Indeed an important subject that needs to be further discussed and brought to the frontlines of our global economic policies and development. This course provides an outline however, only addresses one side of history with regards to industrial revolution, economic growth and poverty. Dealing with a topic like this should showcase all areas of the global community.

The course was great - but it was note clearly outlined that there would be no certificate in the end. I'm doing this to prove my interest in the area to make a career change so I'm very frustrated that this wasn't made clear after all this time.

It was a really a eye opening course for me. It helped me in understanding SDG's and other aspects in detail. Would rate 5 if you could add a certification.

often this course is giving a basic idea of the lesson for too many minutes without going to the core of the message, Really boring

Very Informative course but without Certificate. After spending so much time and efforts it should provide a certificate .
