Great for the intermediate learner. You would find new terminologies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The materials are easy to be understood and the teachers are communicative.

The content of the course is very interesting. I got disappointed, however, in peers' evaluation of other peers' assessments. Clearly, most of them do not take a good care of reading what is required when evaluating a assignment not even the assignment itself. I believe that every assignment should be rated by the teacher or mentors only.

I like the content but the certificate is below my expectations! It does not even indicate the name of the university in big, bold characters, instead there are just two seals positioned on the upper portion of the document! It does not look professional. I really hope this can be fixed!

El curso está muy centrado en el inglés para divulgación científica. No aprendes mucho de inglés en general, solamente tecnicismos y lenguaje relacionado con la ciencia.

Pela descrição do curso eu imaginei que o foco seriam professores que aplicam a netodologia STEM o que, conforme o cutso foi concluindo, se mostrou muito diferente.

The structure and the content was good and interesting. But the told English was too easy and I expected more detailed scientific content.

Well framed course. But there are few knowledge gaps in incorporation of Mathematics and Engineering streams.
