Sobre o curso

Professional epidemiologists are often called on to investigate outbreaks and epidemics. This course serves as an introduction to the essentials of investigation, identifying pathogens, figuring out what's going on, reporting, and responding. You'll learn how to ask precise epidemiologic questions and apply epidemiologic tools to uncover the answers. You'll also learn about basic epidemic dynamics and the terrible law that cause them to grow, as well as the reasons why they recede and eventually go away. The course concludes with deep dives into some real outbreaks from Ebola, in West Africa, to the opioid epidemic in the United States....

I appreciate that the course was short, to the point and wasn't overloaded with "fluff" to justify it's substance. The instructor did a great job explaining the content. Unfortunately, I did not do all of the exercises at the end of the modules, due to my attempt to complete the course within a short time span. However, I plan to do them over the summer break. My only comment is to provide downloadable pdf's for the lectures.

One great factor of this course is the time taken to establish the key points and summarize the information which was a great help. However, I'd like to note that for the examples or exercises given, some time should be taken to show/explain the answers so that individuals are aware if they're on the right track with their learning. Thank you

I really liked the course and the explanation of the material by the professor. However, I think it would be extra useful if the solutions to the exercises at the end of each video were also provided, in order for the participants to be able to check if their way of thinking and their proposed solution to the problem were correct.

Very good indeed. Although about the last module, the PDF of the slides can not be downloaded and the first question of the questionnaire has a correct option mention AI but it is not mention it in the video.

Really great content. Only thing bringing it from 5 to 4 stars - the module exercises during the course gave no answers, so I didn't know if I was on the right track answering the practice questions.

This interesting course gives me an in-depth understanding for outbreak investigation and facilitator gave examples in detailed for clearing the concepts related to outbreaks and epidemics.

The responses from the exercises could be available or explained after each section. Overall, the course is good. It provides a general overview of outbreaks and epidemics. A good start...

Great course! Good history on previous epidemics, should be interesting to see how they update the course with the COVID-19 pandemic case study

I think the course would benefit from a more interactive approach - like mini quizes during the videos with multiple choice so the learners can retain and use the information they have seen immediatelly.

Frustrated by the technology, submissions were later retracted, watch videos were marked as unread.

The material can be a lot improved. It is boring to hear voice and look at text slides for hours.

I studied this course as part of the specialization "Epidemiology in Public Health Practice", which accumulates 5 courses like this one.

After final validation and many hours of study, the final certificate for the specialization states that I worked an estimated "4 weeks of study, 2-3 hours/week", which is the same amount of time stated for a single course, such as "Essential Epidemiologic Tools for Public Health Practice".

This is frustrating and people may not want to add this specialization to their Curriculum Vitae. Amount of time spent is not real.
