It was very informative, the discussions were lively and brought together thinking around the world and broadened my perspective on Climate Change and its possible effects if we do nothing now.

This course give quite comprehensive learning about climate science and makes you think how can you use this knowledge in your personal and professional domain as concrete action.

The course is very well organized and provide a lot of interesting, useful, practical information.
It is a good course for students and also seasoned professionals as it covers a wide range of topics.
Please note the last assignment is a video. It is posted as it requires "2 hours" of work. But realistic speaking, between preparing the information required, plus editing, uploading, etc. I will give to this task no less than 8 hours.

Excellent course and well constructed. Personally, I do not understand why digital artifacts are so popular. I do not find they add to my learning, in fa t the reverse. My al;ready limited time is spent navigating the digital/tech aspects and short cutting on time that could be spent delving deeper into the issue.

This learning was excellent and has assisted me in learning more about climate change adaptation and mitigation strategies, and actively thinking about how I can work with others in public and private environments to reduce our carbon footprints. Thank you!

Overall, very informative, interactive course.
However, some contents seem a bit outdated (sometimes dating back to 2012) or some links provided don't work anymore, I would recommend a bit of an update on the contents.

The course had great content. But some of the videos were old and few links given in the resource material had expired.
It would be great if some of the material could be updated as per the current global situation.

Overall a great resource for getting a very broad perspective on climate science and the climate crisis. Would have liked to see more updated / recent course materials, but the quality of content was great.

Quite a good experience. Some of the reading material could be heavy for a person new to this subject.

I really appreciate The World Bank making this course so affordable. I think it's very timely and relevant today. The content is enriching and informative. You learn a lot about how various countries are tackling climate change, the challenges they face and the opportunities they can explore from a policy perspective. But the reason I've marked the course with a lower rating is - the course did not contain any information about how individuals can contribute to climate change reversal, through their actions. This is not a course for a beginner. Most of the content is based on scientific papers and uses jargon that many of us non-scientists would be unfamiliar with. The speakers read from a script and deliver the videos, instead of having conversations - which makes the video more difficult to follow, since they're reading from reports and research papers. That's another problem - the research used is too dated and stems from the 2009-2015 period. There are slides with photos of graphs which haven't been explained and are difficult to understand. In a nutshell, this course is for someone already familiar with the scientific terminology, theories and background of environmentalism, climate change and sustainability. If you're looking for a beginner-friendly course, I would suggest looking elsewhere first and then following that up with this course. It would add more value then. However, this course is ideal if you are in the Government sectot, are a policy maker, an environmental lawyer or a company who is trying to meet their sustainability goals. Overall, you do learn a lot from this - but its not particularly helpful to acquaint non-scientists with what we can do on our part, to use climate science for action in our day to day lives. The peer review assignments are easy to do and don't take much time. But the quizzes are difficult given the scientific jargon they contain. But you do learn by searching for the meaning of these complicated terms as you do the quiz.

I did this course whilst working in regional Papua New Guinea. Unfortunately the electricity and internet connections are not that reliable which made the final assignment challenging. Please make it clear the format of all parts of the assignments. I was not expecting to have to submit a video and I am sure if I had known from the outset I would have looked into how to produce a video using basic editing software. Also, there are no prompts to get the discussions going which I feel is a wasted opportunity.

The course was interesting, especially the peer assignments which I found stimulating. The required readings are very heavy but not always indispensable to succeed in the quizzes. In most videos, you can see that speakers are not professional educators and sometimes I wish key concepts would have been more clearly defined. Some videos address too many different topics and should have been broken down in smaller chunks. There are also a lot of repetitions. The ESA videos were actually the best.

I liked the abundance of resources the course provided. It definitely inspired me to dive deeper and continue my own research.
I wish the content was more up to date. A lot of information was from several years ago and some goals/projects mentioned had a deadline in 2020. Since we are already mid-2020, it would have been nice to access more recent data. This was my biggest disappointment. I also didn't enjoy the assigments that much - they were very time-consuming yet not very satisfying.

Very informative. However, there is too much focus on technology and policy, and lacked soci-cultural perspective. WB knows that what leaders / country representatives say are glazed and realities are far different. WB should address this, compel leaders to straighten up, and not just be figures and statistics in Transparency International's index.
