This was a phenomenal learning experience, the hands-on approach made it feel always relevant, the instructor was brilliant and the materials were always suited to my learning expectations.
This was a very very informative and I truly enjoyed every bit of it during this 4 weeks. I am saying thank you so much to the organizers of this wonderful course 100% thumbs up!

For those completely new to epidemiology or those that English is not their mother tongue, the terminology and associated synonyms may be challenging. I went back many times, reviewing previous lectures to insure that I had a good grasp of the terminology. This enabled me to fully incorporate "academic' epidemiology into real-world epidemiology. Each medical discipline has it's own unique terminology such as prevalence = risk, but to a "new" student in epidemiology using prevalence in one context and then risk is a similar but different context could be challenging. I would certainly suggests using Gordis's text in epidemiology, which I dusted off from my years ago as a student..

This course was helpful and informative. However, the structure of the quizzes, particularly how specifically correct the answers have to be entered was extremely frustrating. I highly recommend making all quiz questions multiple choice going forward. Additionally, there were a few times throughout the course when the instructor would audibly describe a formula or calculation but not visibly display it. Visually displaying all math calculations done in the lecture would help me learn it much easier.

The information is presented in an understandable manner, however, there is a great deal of frustration when taking the quizzes and tests due to how the system reads your answers. Overall, I enjoyed the topic and the instructors and would still recommend the course those interested in epidemiology.

Easy to follow and very well explained. Videos are of high quality and short enough to squeeze into the day. Main criticism: the quizzes over index on metric calculations rather than metric choice and interpretation.

The couse is excellent but the quizzes answers should be multiple choices not open answer and after passing the quizzust provide us with the right answers of the wrong answered one

Great course that builds up concepts gradually and really respects your time. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a gentle introduction to some basic epidemiological concepts

Good overview on basic epidemiological statistics that are also taught in med school - very comprehensible recap for me, thanks!

I love the course. However, I wish that instructor had a bit more clarity of materials when providing information!

I had quite high expectations from this cours and ICL. The course is a basic introduction to epidemiology, good for understanding basic concepts. If offered in the future, I hope the organisers will improve on the following: (1) focus more on interpretation of various frequency and measures of association. I believe this was not stressed enough and it is paramount. More practical examples in the lectures. Ensure the quizzes have the correct solution in the quiz feedback, sometimes it is not present. On week 4, the last quiz, question 17 does not correctly record the correct answer. Also, in terms of terminology, I found it limiting to speak only in terms of "disease", as opposed to "outcome", since epidemiology doesn't only deals with disease, but rather outcomes of interest which can also be positive (i.e. survival, etc)

I enjoyed the course content. I found the questions challenging and would like to see more sample questions to practice prior to the unit quiz. I found some of the questions in the quiz for each chapter were not clearly demonstrated in the video and were very challenging to understand. A work book for practice include steps on how to get to the answers if not achievable by the student.

Very important, and whit context in public health

Course is interesting, but content is rather poor. Videos are to short, not enough examples. Quizzes reqire tones of calculations and are not well thought. In many cases rounding up/down of calculated solution is problematic and you need to guess the correct answer. After improving reading content with more examples and changing the way knowledge is tested this will be a great 5/5 course.

The instructor has an accent which made understanding him difficult. I had to look at the transcript instead of the videos.
The videos were basic but did not provide sufficient information on how calculations should be made. For example, in week 2, the sleeping students were used (which is a silly example) and it was not clearly shown who the unexposed is because both denominators are the same (n=10).
If this is a part of the Master program, I will surely not sign up with Imperial College. There are no real-life examples and the sleeping students illustration is even lower than for the undergrads.
course with little explanation and where students are unable to do the proposed activities. Unfortunately, this course does not add anything to my career and I would like to remove it from my list of courses. Too bad

Lecturer cannot articulate very well in English and enough examples were not given for the different ratios.

Worst course of the platform!
