Content was very interesting, a lot of repetition of material helped to get a good understanding of Health Systems. Organizational Diagnosis was very useful.

Very interesting and broad course with also clear examples
Sometimes I wished less repetition
Some technical problems still there (slides/speech matching) but not too impairing for the learning process

This course provided useful overview. Though slides in presentations in Module 2 were in wrong order. Otherwise, I would recommend the course.

Sadly the PowerPoint in Module 2 (part of week 2) is totally messed up. However, great course with good examples

Some weeks are disproportionately heavy with regards to other. Very interesting.

The course format is not particularly student friendly. Relying solely on videos in which the lecturer presents field experience over a slide deck that is not always synced with what they are saying is not exactly the peak online learning methodology.
Adding some readings, linking additional resources that the students could explore (the JHU website has multiple amazing online tools), breaking the very lengthy course videos into smaller pieces would make for a more impactful educational experience.
On top of that, the peer review system is not exactly fool proof, and even after you have successfully submitted your assignment, one can wait for multiple weeks before obtaining the certificate, as there is apparently not enough peers to review the submissions. The discussion forum for the course is filled with people asking for reviews.
That being said, the course content is interesting and I believe that the whole Foundations of Global Health is potentially quite useful for people looking to cement their GH experience and knowledge.
For people who are only getting started in the Public and Global Health, I'd suggest taking the course "Essentials of Global Health" from Yale University which is for free, a lot more interactive & student-friendly and introduces students to multiple online tools that are useful for further research and better understanding.

The videos were fairly long and extremely detailed albeit it required complete and undivided attention. If you don't do very well when it comes to watching long lectures, it's better to start now because it's going to be worth it. Thanks!

The information is very useful but, some slides of the videos are not synchronize with the audio and make difficult to understand the classes.

The information provided was very useful, but the method (videos/lectures) were too monotonous.

The content organization is very random and one component does not flow into the other.
The approach to teaching is very boring- the instructor is simply reading out information without engagement.
The good part about the course is the case study approach to teaching which makes it easier to apply in a practical setting.

The instructor was very dry and the information was presented in such huge chunks, it was difficult to digest
