About the Course

Well designed course with a step by step learnings right from simple to complex ones. The complex is because this HWTS deals with and targets the multidisciplinary approach which is what is expected in this course.

A good course overall. Some of the visual cues in the videos are a bit off (that's why I gave it 4/5 stars). The subject matter is very informative and presented clearly.

While I found the first weeks very interesting, the charm went down after, talking about charts that might help NGO's and researchers, not that much for learners.

The information provided is spectacular and extremely interesting! The size of videos though should be smaller, maximum 15 minutes as they become a bit tiring.

Thank you for the opportunity, but some of the videos audio or language were not clear, either the language or the monotony of the speaker.
