Great overview of philantrophy, a framework for thinking about one's resources in order to create the biggest impact. Loads of guest speakers and resources for life-long giving and learning.
Fantastic course, so carefully and cleverly put together. Very inspiring, many thanks for running this - it will help me become a better giver and encourage others to do so as well!

My first MOOC, great experience. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into making it. The only reason I did not put 5 stars is that there was little community engagement. I understand that this is not the fault of the course organizers, however I felt like I was missing out because the 'real' course was over and now it is dead. I am not sure whether the instructor or TAs are usually available in MOOCs. May be using other apps, like facebook and telegram for communication would encourage more participation and dialog.
I would love to take courses to supplement this one, if it is possible to receive emails or updates in the future. Thank you for an amazing semester!

Course modules and the guest talks are really very insightful. But, the peer review part is not good as most of them typed just to fill the page and complete the course. As, I have reviewed 4 submissions but nobody have written more than two words which I flagged as incomplete. Then, what's the necessity of giving certificate without playing a single video lectures?

Not recommended at all. She gets some things right, but really wastes the opportunity to drill the most fundamental and important point about philanthropy: namely, that the most important factor in assessing a non-profit's value is effectiveness, and non-profits vary in their effectiveness by many orders of magnitude. Furthermore, a small number of Charity Evaluators and Meta charities have identified those charities which most effectively address the most common values of aspiring philanthropists.
I don't recommend this course for anyone. Rather, I would strongly encourage anyone seriously interested Giving to check out Peter Singer's course, "Effective Altruism".
