The course has provided the excellent knowledge about the need to switch over from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources to save our environment, climate and also strong economy in coming futures.
I loved the course. It is very important for beginners to understand climate change and policy before committing to their careers and this course if perfect for people diving deep into this sector.
Good course for understanding how the energy policy environment is evolving. PResents a good macro picture.

Useful and comprehensive

This format is less than stellar for the content. I would prefer less of a Ted Talk / interview style and more of a classic teaching concept, overview, scenario, and the interviews as a supplement.
Many of the links are outdated or paywalled, making assignments and readings harder.
Overall, you learn some things, but the course is repetitive. There are only so many times you can come to the same conclusion of "people act in their best interest." I think this course is worth a good review and rework to make a much more stable and solid impact on learners.

This course has some interesting material but two big caveats. First, it's showing its age - the most recent materials in the class are now four years old, and this is a rapidly changing area. Second, it's lightly enrolled so there weren't many people in the forums, and the few ones there seemed to focus mostly on getting someone to peer review their essays.
Would love to see this class refreshed with current content, and run less frequently so that the student body gets commensurately larger.

The first part of the MOOC gives interesting and qualitative explanations to the topic. Interviews are always pleasant to listen to and the readings, sometimes a bit long and complicated, still provide precious information for those who want to go further in the develompment of each topic.
But the second part on (courses 4 and 5) lack of content with outdated and unavailable reading contents. It is disappointing regarding the quality of the first part.

A very interesting topic. However, the course was let down somewhat by two problems. First, some of the key readings were not accessible, either being behind paywalls or no longer being available using the links provided. And second, some of the readings and content felt a little out of date, particularly in a context that continues to change in real time.

The course material is very limited and eurocentric. System should take care that assignment are properly circulated for peer review and system should make them available when due. Overall a superficial course.

I would have really enjoyed reading a compendium for the course. Or, at least, it would have been helpful if each week, there was a summary of what we should have learned from the readings and videos.

Creating video lectures without fixed text is poor preparation. Unfortunately, information was not adequate during conversations.
