Sobre o curso

Welcome to ‘Science Matters: Let's Talk about COVID-19’, from the Jameel Institute at Imperial College London. The outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) is the most significant public health emergency of the 21st century so far. As the epidemic spreads, people around the world want to understand the science behind the most pressing questions: how many people have been infected? How dangerous is the virus? When will a vaccine be available? How can the epidemic be contained, and the damages mitigated? What is the economic impact? What’s the role of social media and local communities in the epidemic response? Researchers at the Jameel Institute and other research institutes at Imperial College London have been at the forefront of the response to the COVID-19 emergency, with clinical, epidemiological and social science analyses informing the outbreak response. They are generating robust empirical evidence that governments and international agencies are using around the world to plan their responses. On this course, you will hear directly from our world-class experts about the theory behind the analyses of COVID-19 and its spread, while learning how to interpret new information using core principles of public health, epidemiology, medicine, health economics, and social science. You will be able to watch regular situation reports about the state of the epidemic, provided by the researchers of J-IDEA and its director Professor Neil Ferguson. If you want to learn even more about these topics, a number of free MOOCs are available from Imperial College London. We also offer a fully online Global Master of Public Health for those of you who want to delve even deeper and join our professional community.

I was under the impression, that this is a certificate course, but unfortunately Coursera Learner Services / support confirmed it didn't. Since this course offers no certificate, it'll remain in your "in progress" section until you either unenroll or ask Coursera to manually move it to the "completed" section, which might take multiple mails and persistence. That's something Coursera could improve upon.

Some parts of this course have embedded windows. They look like three windows within each other, having a tiny font and my browser is unable to zoom in. Sometimes, they just display a grey box. It would be great, if the course creators could use technologies, which are more accessible, so everybody taking this course can do every part.

Unfortunately, like with many Coursera courses it is really cumbersome to download parts of the course: some pages aren't printed completely and there's no option to download the whole course.

The course itself was informative. It's a shame it wasn't updated more to reflect the newest findings about COVID-19.

This course was completed and, however, I still see it as "in progress". I understand it has no certificate, but I can not understand why Imperial College and Coursera could not answer all students that complain about it.
