Good information. I enjoyed learning more about tropical parasites. Some of the questions on the quizzes and exams did not correlate with lectures.

Very good and informative MOOC. Especially the first parts were very extensive and useful. The last weeks were a bit less informative.

The course content is good and informative, unfortunately the lecturers are only reading the script while being filmed, it's not very engaging. On top of that are a couple of blurpers where they actually skip the word "not" in the video, so for people listening but not reading along on the slides, they'd actually understand the opposite of what is ultimately true. After week 2 I skipped the videos altogether and simply studied from the downloadable script, which works better and faster. I was able to complete the course within 4 weeks (as opposed to the scheduled 8) that way.

Less about the parasites and more about case studies in human and treatment, found a few errors in the quiz answers
