Thank you for providing this course online! Very pleased with my experience and all that I've learned! I thought it was a nice touch to include TED Talks throughout the course as well.
Fantastic course and a great lecturer. Highly recommend it. This topic should be studied by many and I encourage people to explore it. There is so much that can be learnt in this course.
A very good course to have basic understanding of sustainable development. A learner from different background like me would find it much helpful in exploring a new field of interest.
Very nice and informative course. Professor's explanation and information regarding sustainability is more useful and effective. I realized the importance of this course and enjoyed this study.
