Interesting but also VERY basic introduction to global trends. Freshman level content as compared to the IESE Globalization course (see my other review) that has serious research and content and a required essay. The course could be greatly improved by requiring a project- one need only get 28/40 MC questions spread across 5 weekly quizzes of 8 MC each to "pass". The final week successfully wraps together the prior themes to posit that the 21st century will be multi-polar with the US, China, India, and EU as dominant players.

An eassy way to learn the most important topics about our future. The course has an introductory level. The teacher is amazing and we notice he likes to teach and the material. There are sorprendent future trends that one couldn't not imagine. For example: overpopulation of Africa, all world tending to an avarage index of inequelity (gini index). The future world middle class will be in India. If someone want to invest money in future business is a perfect place of guessing or taking good ideas.

Extremely pleasant and informative course. Charming teaching style. Material is easy to digest and aimed literally at general audience.  Basic stuff about where the World is going is covered pretty well. Nearly all topics that come to mind about global trends are mentioned and explained. The only objection is that we could have gone more into details. Reading material was well thought out and a nice supplement to the course. The funniest activity, at least for me, was Global Literacy Test where you could check and recheck how familiar you are with things going on around the Globe. I was under impression that Prof. Mauro did all the preparatory work for this MOOC on his own and kudos to that. Quizzes are more than easy, so if you are after a certificate, this is the course for you.
