Overall I really enjoyed learning from this course and the instructor even talked about potential ways to tackle different environmental issues. (Hannah S)

This course has opened my eyes and taught me ways to improve our environment

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that this course has opened my eyes by explaining in detail the mistakes we as humans make which affects our environment. The best part of the course was the instructor explaining different ways to improve the environment. (Lynne J)

Learning from this course has been a fascinating experience for me. The content is great and well put together. I would say every single week has been presented in an extremely well and accessible manner. I am quite impressed with the video clips as the information they had to offer was very valuable. I feel to have learned a lot from this course. (Liz R)

This was a very challenging yet highly informative course that has quite technical content to offer

Yes the course seemed a bit challenging yet I found it to be extremely informative. It is true that it took me a lot of time to digest the provided material but that doesn’t change the fact that the course was worth my time. The links provided by the instructor were also very useful and appropriate and thus I would like to thank the instructor for this extremely erudite and well-presented course. (Lorna S)

I believe this course has encouraged me to understand so much about sustainability and learn almost everything there is about the climate crisis

Learning from this course has been an amazing experience as the course encouraged me to dive deep into learning all about the climate crisis. I can recommend this course to all those looking for a detailed introduction to environmental issues. It would be appropriate to say this course allows learners to think deeply about all the possible solutions that are more engaging than just learning. (Daisy S)

This has been a very interesting and worthwhile experience as the course highlighted the environmental challenges faced by our planet in detail.

I am very happy to learn about sustainability and can say this course has given me a clear opportunity to declare the steps that should be taken by everyone. (Clifford N)

Key challenges

Overall the course encloses superficial content and the problems mentioned don’t offer appropriate solutions

Generally, the course content seemed very superficial to me and the statements made by the instructor didn’t make sense to me as they were not associated with proposed solutions. I believe the course even lagged support. (Mark P)

I believe this course is only suitable for those living in the West side of the country

The course is without any doubt great and does shed light on environmental issues but it is written mostly from the Western perspective. Meaning, those who are living in the East won’t be able to benefit from this course. I believe the environmental problems are the worst on the East side and thus a course should be made that also focuses on the East side. (Tom D)

Learner’s Suggestions/Recommendations:

  • This course for sure raises awareness regarding environmental issues and offers content that is updated. The level was right for me and the best part of the course was the content on glaciers and ocean parts. Overall I really enjoyed learning from this course but the only thing I would want from the instructor is to add more details about SDGs and energy developments in the UK instead of only focusing on those in Africa and South Asia. (Zheng Hong)
  • The course was excellent and touched every angle but given the content, it could have been easily extended to 5 weeks. (Sherrill W)

Is this Course worth taking?

Overall this is a very engaging course that encourages learners to understand the importance of a more sustainable future for our planet. The course offers content that helps us understand the role of Sustainable Development Goals in improving our environment.
