I think this course is supposed to be compulsory for the members of Amnesty due to its important and if we consider the population of refugee is increasing every day in almost all the undeveloped countries.

Positive: The course gives a good overview about topic for someone who never got in touch with a refugee topic. Its texts & videos are easy to understand. Negative: The course is definetly too short. It scrached on the surface of the refugee topic and therefore 49 $ for a certificate is way too expensive. The tests of the course are too simple, especially because you got two attempts. Partially, the course could be better structured.

This course is a trivial propaganda piece for Amnesty International's agenda. The material is trivial and the lessons contain almost no content. You can easily pass this course just skimming or even ignoring the material. I was hoping for some interesting discussions in the forums, but my fellow students offered nothing but anecdotes, emotional outrage at dissent, and nothing resembling logical arguments. Don't waste your time, and certainly don't pay for a certificate which I'm sure is utterly worthless.

Simply jaw-dropping, the course especially in my country, yemen which is war-torn is vital because it will equip me to understand and handle any problem whenever it arise, refugees like any other people in our society have many rights and choices, this course is perfect to understand how it's like to know and aid Refugees, especially in war-torned countries.
