Somewhat confusing course. The last assignment gave no indication that it was an essay, or a PowerPoint presentation, slides so I had no idea what format to use! Very frustrating!

This was quiet an interesting course and I enjoyed it. The only issue I had was with the Week 7 Peer review quiz. It took joining two more sessions after the first one to finally get a Passing grade. There has to be a way to get more people viewing/grading an essay before a grade can be given to avoid having to submit the same essay more than once.

It looked really interesting, but I was wrong. The videos are explained in a very boring way, the American focus is too present (I expected a more worldwide focus, even when she is explaining international organisations and world funds the American focus does not fade away) and the Gates Foundation spam is too much to handle (and yes, we all know that she worked there, she reminds us that every single week). Besides, many links do not work anymore and the final assessement task was too much for a self-employed like me who has to work every day more than 10h (weekends included, perks of being self-employed). It could be a great course but it has become the most boring course I have ever taken in Coursera and the only one I regret paying for. Unfortunately, a huge disappointment which I did not enjoy as much as I wished.

This is a good course if you're looking for basic understanding of global health policy. I STRONGLY recommend completing the activities.
