This course was perfect for those wanting to explore the world of development, broad enough to include all interlinked themes, with sufficient reading materials to spark one's specializing interests.

The course was very interesting and relevant but a lot of data is outdated, some links are not working or have been changed. I would advise to review the course according to the latest developments.

I'm so happy to have passed through this course. It has exposed me to the real facts about Humanity on earth and what needs to be done to keep us here long enough. Thanks to Professor Jeffrey Sachs and all members of the course team

This is an outstanding achievement for me as it is my first completed course in Coursera. It is one of the best courses related to Sustainable Development. But it would be great if we get a certificate after complete this course.

Lots of quality conversational information on sustainable development, but I wish there were more interactive projects to apply the concepts. Without an application, much of the information remained abstract and hard to remember.

It's a very interesting and fun course. I think maybe it's too long for not giving a certificate, but it's a nice course to follow and to learn by even if you just do 10 minutes per day and take it as a personal experience

It was really tasking and demanding for me but i enjoyed every bit of Professor's lecture. He provided detailed insights into every aspect of sustainable development needed for every government of every country.

Very interesting course overall, the material on the quizzes was a bit peculiar, mostly based on outside statistics that didn't require one to have actually watched the lecture and even sometimes had mistakes.

A great introduction to the subject of Sustainable Development!
Prof. Sachs talks very slowly which makes it very easy to follow and understand. I personally liked to watch the videos at a higher speed though.

The lectures are very interesting and fascinating, I really enjoyed watching them! However, the tests are outdated, many of the links in them do not exist anymore which makes it more difficult to pass them.

Very interesting class.
Only one comment : it is becoming difficult to answer to questions. Indeed, they are referring to 2014 datas that are getting harder to get and links that can't be found anymore.

There is some great material in here (especially detailing the more hopeful aspects of sustainable development). The only bad part was that some of the links need updating in the quizzes.

Very informative with extensive materials and an awesome professor. Highly recommended, the only thing better would be regular updates t some of the charts used and taking it in person.

Great course, very interesting content and amazing Professor. However there are some issues with the quizzes due to a lack of update of the course, which can be frustrating at times.

Sachs was an entertaining professor and the lectures where informative. He really does illustrate and discuss the different factors that may effect an area's development process.

Very interesting and demanding course, however is very long (14 weeks) in comparison to other online courses and due to its length it should provide a certificate of completion.

Very interesting course, it gives a global overview of the topic. Unfortunately the tests are often outdated and refer to graphs that do not exist anymore... very frustrating!

Text book and videos were great...quizzes were a little behind in that the links were often no longer connected so you are left to guess when the link holds the specific an

Muy buen curso, entrega lo que ofrece y Jeffrey Sacks explica muy bien. El único problema son los quiz, traen links que no funcionan y hay respuestas que están mal.

A great overview of a very complicated topic. Dr. Sachs does a great job presenting the information in easily digestible bits but still keeps it interesting.

Great course but some of the content needs to be updated to include recent events since Environmental Science is such a fast-changing field at the moment.

Very informative and interesting. The links to various sources in the tests are not up to date though and make it difficult to get a 100% score.

Very good course! The only thing that i must criticise is that in many weekly tests there are mistakes. This can get a little bit frustrating

Very Interesting and helpful. It's a way to open our mind and definitely something that everyone should know about before it is too late.
