I found navigating the course difficult tat first: I missed some of the material in the first week and had to go back to search for it in the second week. However, I was riveted by the input from human rights activists from other parts of the world. I learnt much more than I expected to, in more depth. I would recommend it highly.

Reflecting after completing this course i realise i knew very little about human rights! Despite referring to the act in my profession as a learning disability nurse. People needs to know this essential and valuable information. Brilliant! Thank you Amnesty :)

This outstanding online learning experience could not have been more positive. I will make sure to recommend future courses to everyone I know! The contents are extremely interesting, clear, informative and useful. The tests and other exercises promote the effective consolidation of the knowledge acquired and the Staff is very attentive and always willing to help. Furthermore, providing specific information about concrete cases, this course encourages the students to take action on behalf of numerous activists who are currently facing terrible human rights violations and abuses. The live sessions are also particularly inspiring and engaging initiatives.

I am a student studying social science, this course has given me additional knowledge in a very important subject that I knew very little about. The content is a good introduction to learning about Human Rights and already I feel I have acquired enough information to know that my voice can be invaluable in helping with campaigns. I would highly recommend this course and hope there are more from Amnesty in the future!

I am sorry to say this, but this course is WAY too easy and didn't provide me with new knowledge. I completed it with a grade of 100% within 1 1/2 hours. It totally undermines the worth of other courses at edX. There was virtually no video content regarding in the form of lectures - only a few very short videos. This the poor grade concerning the instructor - you barely get to see her. Maybe ok if you never heard about human rights, but it didn't impress me much. Such a shame, I expected a better course.

Actually this my first time of reading a course like this, and am really happy to know more about human rights. And I believe my instructor would help me a lot to achieve my objective, which is to know more about the course. And also enhance my resume to get a brighter opportunities in the near future.

A great platform for collective action on human rights.This course is particularly significant for individuals from developing countries with repressive governments, brazen impunity and non-adherence to the rule of law. Though, developed countries are not exempted as it relates to discrimination, identity and racial conflicts etc. How else do we stand up for internationally guaranteed rights?
