Great course!! Great instructor!!! Well presented coverage of various global issues. Interesting approach to grading where no grades are given. I discovered that without grades I don't concern myself with deadlines and finished most of the course well past its deadline. I focused on the sections I was interested in. Usually I complete everything to maximize grade out of habit but didn't bother here since grades aren't given. Either way it is worth taking course.
