Really enjoyed the course. Some of the recommended reading was no longer accessible and the material was not up to date to 2020. However, it gave a good introduction to the UN and the issues involved.
It was very interesting to get to know better about the UN structure and concepts, and it helped me a lot to get my first opportunity in an UN mission! Starting a new career. Thank you so much.

Expected way more from this course... The University of London only provided 5-minute videos including short excerpts of experts' opinion but other than that it was simply links to articles and Youtube videos I could have easily searched and read by myself... I expected more engaging and time-consuming assignments. Maybe including a test type of assignment would help students focus on the content of the course better.

This course provides some sources on the topics it offers on the United Nations. Not so much academic learning or innovative ways to teach the subjects. moreover, many links are inaccessible and need to be updated. One more thing, there is no plan offered here to engage the students more into the topics and few conversations take place among the students and the instructors.

Its nice and gives a good overview. however, you don't have a teacher giving a lecture: there are short videos (5-10 minutes) of the university in the beginning of each week and a list of links. the material in general is nice but is a little old and a lot of the links don't work anymore.
It is a good course for basic level knowledge. However, I recommend you rather go to the UN website and read it through and go to some other articles and read them. This will actually cover everything and more you will get to learn in this course.

We can learn some knowledge about what's confronting the UN at present from the diverse points of view. It might be a little hard to summarize and analyze all information uploaded in an appropriate form when you hand in your submission.

Interesting course. However, the assignments were tedious and redundant. Might I suggest having one assignment at the end of the course. Also don't make a seventh module when it is optional! This court was a lot of work and exhausting.

In the course he does not talk about the United Nations organization, helps countries in these cases, about terrorism, invasion of other countries, and what role they play in this situation so that this is avoided.

I enjoyed this course however it is out of date; some links to videos/articles no longer exist and news articles are from 2015. Would be great if it was updated to reflect the world today.

though an interesting course, I believe the course content could be improved to answer in a more relevant way the issues raised. Still worth taking it but do not expect too much.

Some of the reading material provided is outdated and not available to access on the websites, especially in Week 6

More content could be given as part of videos. More detailed explanation of the working of UN could have been made

Coursera has opened up my viewpoint that has enabled me to see a completely new view of the United Nations.

Witnessed quite large number of students, not taking the course seriously.

I think the course needs to update both the videos and reading materials. Since, the videos and the reading materials are somewhat lacks depths. The course should be more informative and resourceful.

Many broken links, where videos and articles assigned could not be accessed.

Very generic, short videos of conversations in which the speakers describe the UN in the most basic way. In addition, each week there are a high number of required readings. Instead, the people who organize the course should focus on providing a more complete overview of the UN, its main bodies and functions. The whole course seems like an introduction, like it belongs to week 1 of a far more interesting course. Unfortunately, this is not that course.

PAGAS EL CURSO PARA OBTENER TU CERTIFICADO Y AL FINAL TE VUELVEN A COBRAR SI QUIERES EL CERTIFICADO, ES UN FRAUDE.
