A solid presentation of diabetes, somewhat heavy on both theory, clinical research and practical information for diabetics. Pretty dense with information and can be challenging in parts for those coming from non-medical backgrounds...but then again diabetes is a complex multi-layered disease along with its complicated treatments so the instructors wisely choose not to over- simplify the material. The students who hang on and patiently go through the material will come away with a pretty good appreciation for the complexities of the illness. A whole week was focused on dental health and how that is strongly related to diabetes and for me, that was a welcome addition. The final week was also somewhat challenging with an introduction of the various ongoing cutting edge research to improve the health outcomes of diabetics.

Information-packed class with a very knowledgeable instructors, covering "normal" diabetes topics, like medication, as well as unusual topics like dental health. Definitely slanted towards those in the medical professions, though anyone interested in diabetes will glean good information if they are willing to take the time to "unpack" the information. The most interesting week to me was the final week that focused on the current research and possible future approaches to the management on diabetes. Very well done MOOC.

UCSF has assembled a stellar team of experts to deliver an excellent set of informative and useful lectures. The topics covered were comprehensive and packed into 5 intensive weeks. Beginners will need to review the lectures, slides and subtitles available for download (which is a big plus point) before taking the 5 quizzes, each one consisting of 20 MCQ questions. I am thoroughly satisfied with what I learnt from this course and I really appreciate the well put together information. The interaction with the lecturer (Prof Lisa Kroon) through the "Office Hours" segment where she answers questions really place this course above other MOOCs. Well done !!! I certainly recommend this course to those who wish to learn more about diabetes, but not through passive reading up from internet and books. The interaction with the diverse group of fellow course mates is good. Last but not least, thank you to the staff (Andrew) dedicated to answer ...
