Compartmental modelling is a cornerstone of mathematical modelling of infectious diseases and this course will introduce some of the basic concepts in building compartmental models, including how to interpret and represent rates, durations and proportions. You'll learn to place the mathematics to one side and concentrate on gaining intuition into the behaviour of a simple epidemic, and be introduced to further basic concepts of infectious disease epidemiology, such as the basic reproduction number (R0) and its implications for infectious disease dynamics. To express the mathematical underpinnings of the basic drivers that you study, you'll use the simple SIR model, which, in turn, will help you examine different scenarios for reproduction numbers. Susceptibility to infection is the fuel for an infectious disease, so understanding the dynamics of susceptibility can offer important insights into epidemic dynamics, as well as priorities for control....

This is an excellent course. It covers a lot of material, but is very well organized. Gives a great introduction to infectious disease modeling that is intuitive and easy to follow.

Nice course, good balance of videos and independent work. I have a question! What coding language is used in the etivities? Please help - no replies on the forums sadly! Thanks

I am a MSc Biotech graduate of IIT Bombay. I have taken this course towards my project on COVID-19 epidemiology modelling. Since, I was beginner to this field; this course help me to gain basics and also engaged me in different types of SIR model coding. This a wonderful course and well structured one. Go with it if you are new to this field.

It might have been more prudent to allow the solutions to be looked at only after the student at least tries to answer the questions on their own and perhaps get some minimum percentage correct.

The coding exercises were very worthwhile. I felt the videos were too short, and the readings should have been textbook chapters that focused on fundamentals.

Well structured, clearly presented course.

The online R platform is not very convenient compared to a desktop IDE.

More video instruction on R would be helpful.

The material is really well presented and the exercises are great. The only downside is that the forums are not very active and responses are slow or in some cases - questions are not answered at all.
