It's a heavy course for anyone who hasn't had previous experience in this area (me). The first two weeks or so reviews the entire human female reproductive system, including all the hormones and physio-chemical reactions. It was my first time learning about these things, so it was very difficult and I had to study extra hard. After that, the rest of course will repeatedly use the hormonal knowledge you gained in the beginning when talking about the various contraceptive methods. It also gets into global and community issues involving family planning services. The peer assignments were helpful for learning to apply the information we learned. The other students made me feel welcome in this course. I learned a lot.

I loved the quality of the videos - they gave the impression that you were sitting just there, in front of the professor, and that's the thing that I loved almost the most. I liked the fact that the professor was showing us sample IUDs, I even liked the fact that she hesitated while speaking and repeated herself - it's what made the lectures authentic and natural, because that's how lecturers speak. What I didn't realize from the start was the fact that there will be so much emphasis on counselling, but after some thought I came to conclusion that it's just a way to put the knowledge into practice - and it definitely helped me remember the things we were taught. I believe that it would be useful to introduce more cultural concepts - i.e. more cultural background, and not only for the US. It was all shown beautifully in the first week and then somehow the cultural component was almost lost. And the potential is definitely there! In ge...

In general, the course was great, definitely one of the best I've taken so far.

The course is a comprehensive review of contraceptive methods, and includes best practices for guiding people in choosing their contraception methods. Even though the lectures where not terribly engaging, the course is very informative, well prepared and correctly presented. The weekly quizzes had a few errors (like any first run course), and the two writing works where according the material given. I recommend it to anyone wanting to learn a bit more about the contraceptive options available; I've learned a lot, specially regarding changes in the area in the last decade or so.
