Really great course that's paced well. I believe this is a course everyone should and CAN take! These things are important to know especially if you live in an area where disasters are prone.

As most MOOC courses, if used correctly it actually provides the student with a fair amount of knowledge. It is a shame that some people don't take it seriously and only do the minimum or even copy other's projects (like it happened with mine) but the tutor was very helpful in supporting me with this.
I really enjoyed the course, learned new things and refreshed some other knowledge I already had. I would recommend this course for those interested in learning more about the topic

I thoroughly enjoyed the course! I found it very engaging and helpful to my own personal planning. I would have liked to dig deeper into more first aid and CPR related things but the amount that we covered was good enough for me. Also, more information on Active shooter and Terrorism situations would be helpful as well. All in all, I think this program was well worth the time.
Thanks a million!

The course was informative, but seemed to be geared towards individuals not accustom to survival situations. I would enjoy taking a more advanced, in depth program.
However, the course was clear and I enjoyed the assignments. Some of the quiz questions were based off of information which may have meant more to the instructor than it was significant to the students.

This course is so much helpful and advanced for disaster management personnel.
As a graduate in disaster management, this course is a much more satisfying demonstration of real-life application of the institutional knowledge which is learned from my 4.5 years of academic education.
I would like to recommend this course as 8 out of 10.

was very informative, some of the links to further reading did not work. And it would seem that people who are grading others work are not taking this seriously with giving no explanation as to why they have marked something so low, especially in comparison to the others markers who grade higher, but also offer feedback.

More Pictures/illustration could be better during large lecture period what sometimes could be appeared as boring. The course largely describes situation based on US, more important examples around the world could make it more enjoyable. Thanks a lot to the professor, I've learnt a lot of important lessons here.

A well prepared step by step plan which has been prepared. Very easy to understand and made it very interesting to learn and enjoy the course. Tx for intimating few of the important activity though know about it but had completely ignored it during our normal life activity

Cours qui permet d'aborder différents aspects, ça donne des pistes pour ceux qui veulent aller plus loin dans l'organisation des secours , et bien entendu comment se préparer. Le dernier cours sur la construction d'abris et le "batonnage" avec un couteau est optionnel

informative course, although I found the assignment to be somewhat redundant and insulting to the student's intelligence. It's common sense that anyone what automatically know to make a list of survival items and an escape strategy in a disaster situation!

Compare to other coursera courses this course i feel somewhat different. They asked to submit family disaster plan and review family disaster plan of other candidate. Its a new experience for me. THANKS A LOT TO GIVE ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO DO THIS COURSE.

A very well constructed course. It is more oriented towards personal disaster management but the lessons can very well be applied at larger levels. It orients your thinking towards making you a Disaster Ready Person. Good One.

An engaging and highly informative course. My only concern is that the required reading was not available, and there were several broken links for optional reading. This needs to be looked at and repaired as soon as possible.

Well presented introductory course by clearly experienced and knowledgeable Instructor(s). Enjoyed the content, demeanor, and tenor. Slow tempo easily attenuated by speeding up play-back speed.

Course material was very useful, and the attention to awareness as an emergency preparedness skill was appreciated. The peer review section of the course needs revision.
