Sobre o curso

This course covers approaches for modelling treatment of infectious disease, as well as for modelling vaccination. Building on the SIR model, you will learn how to incorporate additional compartments to represent the effects of interventions, such the effect of vaccination in reducing susceptibility. You will learn about ‘leaky’ vaccines and how to model them, as well as different types of vaccine and treatment effects. It is important to consider basic relationships between models and data, so, using the basic SIR model you have developed in course 1, you will calibrate this model to epidemic data. Performing such a calibration by hand will help you gain an understanding of how model parameters can be adjusted in order to capture real-world data. Lastly in this course, you will learn about two simple approaches to computer-based model calibration - the least-squares approach and the maximum-likelihood approach; you will perform model calibrations under each of these approaches in R....

Such a great learning experience. The course provided me with a comprehensive overview of the topics under concern. My gratitude to the instructors for creating such a valuable course.

Stuck in last quiz for many hours, dig in many forums. Finally learn in-depth how and why model structure be like that. 5/5 would loss in thought again.

The level of support was far to low to rate.

The timeliness of support was sometime 1 or 2 weeks.

The support most time was not helpful

The course was poorly designed and had many errors and web links that resulted in errors loading

The quiz at the end was filled with technical errors and it required 2 weeks to correct

There was no feedback on each week and no feedback on the exam

At times responses to questions were incorrect

Generally a good course but not nearly enough time is dedicated to discussing maximum likelihood estimates. It's a complicated subject and giving it only 3x 1 minute lectures creates more confusion than anything else.

This specialization course assesses and re-assesses our ability & performances to real likelihood situations and improves our capability to build an infectious disease model and parameterise it to the minute detailed solutions. It also draws on the mathematical and computer-based skills that should be developing throughout this specialisation period over three months.

Special thanks to READER Dr. Nimalan Arinaminpathy....tutor at Imperial College, LONDON.

A great learning experience, have to struggle a lot for the quiz, But in the end it helps to get better understanding of the concept and practice.

Excellent course videos, content, assignment quiz. Received very good support from instructor and other members/ learners on discussion forum.

This builds on excellently from the first course. The transition is seamless, and the final modelling project was super fun.

This was a delightfully challenging course with just the right mix of instructional guidance and independent thinking required.

My reason for not giving it 5 stars stems mostly from the fact that the wording of the final quiz was at times unnecessarily ambiguous in my opinion.

Still, this course really forces the learner to put into practise what they've learnt, as opposed to merely spitting it outback from rote memory.

In general, the course is designed in a coherent structure, and most of the concept is explained very nicely and clearly. However, I find the likelihood function part is not clearly explained. I find the instructor is avoiding statistics theory on purpose, while it results in confusion for some concepts.

Good content but some exercises and final quiz are designed poorly that sometimes don't even test your learning.
