Really Awesome and well presented course . Just Loved it , very well presented , the vast amount of knowledge and enjoyed the course .
As usual, a very impressive presentation and lecture from Dr. Emily Gurley! Simplified for all of us once more! God bless
I have learned so much, and the course was interactive. I wish to thank Johns Hopkins University and Coursera for offering me the opportunity to pursue this programme.
This course is structured very nicely giving us a lot of relevant reference materials pertaining to surveillance and relating it with real projects to give a better understanding.
