This course will introduce you to the practice of futures thinking, as developed and applied for the past 50 years by the Institute for the Future, a Silicon-Valley-based research and learning group founded in 1968. In this course, you’ll build your understanding of what futures thinking is and what you can do with it. You’ll master essential foresight techniques. You’ll meet some professional futurists. And you’ll choose one or more future topics you want to investigate with your new foresight skills. This course is for anyone who wants to spot opportunities for innovation and invention faster.

Excellent overview of foresight studies. Nothing in any of the follow-on courses is technically hard, but I suspect putting it into practice is a bit like the game of Go: the rules are the easy part.

I really liked how this course was structured with videos, readings, and activities. It has a nice flow, and lots of helpful information. I would highly recommend this for any aspiring futurist.

Good introduction. It could be shortened, though, into 2 weeks.

It's a fun course but not one I'd pay to take. It felt like a big advertisement for the other courses in this series. I suppose that they DID need to explain what future's thinking is before diving deeper, but it's not like it's some rocket science concept.

But it was a fun course nonetheless.

A big chunk of the course is dedicated to tell how important a certain set of skills is, and what you could learn in the next courses; not in discussing what constitues these skills or presenting tools in which to use they are important.

Too much reading an not enough video tuturials. If I wanted to read I would have gotten a book. It did not feel virtual enough for me. The content felt like it was the same thing repeated in many of the articles we had to read. This easily could have been covered in a one hour video instead of a full day plus class.

If you just take 1 course in the whole specialization, then Coursera keeps on charging you monthly for the "subscription" without being clear about the terms.

I would've taken more courses with this platform, but this was clear and plain fraud. I'm erasing my account and my employees'. It's amazing how abusive companies turn when they're having high demand for their products.

Let me use my Futures Thinking skills: I see this platform as the Netscape of browsers. Your employees will leave and create better, hopefully more ethical, online learning companies.
