Very good information and the teaching material is easy to process and understand. I think the stack is a brilliant method to assess and to learn it is one of the important aspects of informatics.
This course is great for beginners in the field of Health Informatics. I really enjoyed it and learnt some new fundamentals concepts and models. Thanks for the effort put in this course

No doubt an excellent foundation for the remaining four cousrses. The content really puts health informatics in perscpective and provides a solid organizational context for applying informatics. It's not just about the data.

Probably the best course on Coursera on the subject. One star deducted because I don't find the lectures particularly engaging, the focus is too much on the USA, and the quizzes and assignments could be improved.

Good lectures, but the quizzes and assignments were a bit off. As in, the quizzes would make clearly correct answers as correct, and the final assignment was not that helpful in synthesizing my learning.

Es un gran curso! El concepto principal "The Stack" que se aprende es una herramienta fantástica para tener una mirada integral de un proyecto en el área de sistemas de información en salud.

As a healthcare worker, I did not pay much attention to health informations systems, this course has integrated and expanded my worldview
Me gustó el contenido del curso, pero considero que hay ciertos temas técnicos que faltarían desarrollarlos con mayor profundidad.

I liked this course. The peer-graded assignment was interesting and helped me evaluate myself on the understanding of this course.

The course was well insightful and thought challenging. I hope to complete the whole specialization. Thanks for the certificate.

The final peer review project helped make sense of the preceding 4 weeks. That was the bit I enjoyed the most.

I wish he did not use a video of himself, rather should have narrated the slides. It was too distracting

It;s a very interesting course overall. More practical exercises could be more useful instead of tests.

Very interesting. Large amount of information on basic concepts of health informatics. Well explained.

Quiz answers may be too specific to what was said or written. Answers could be confusing.

Hard finding peers

The cause is load with valuable information. The lecturer is knowledgeable; however, I found that he did not elaborate well. He mumbled pretty often, and the clip's sound was fussy. I hardly understand what he said sometimes. The slide presentation is well organized, yet only a little piece of information on it. If more study material available to download would be more helpful.
Regarding the final assignments, the provided projects aren't well structured. So it's pretty frustrating trying to study and understand that projects. Also as mentioned, only a little information provided I had to find other online sources to be able to finish the report.
**This cause is focused on US healthcare and the HIS they use. If you are not familiar with the health system, you might find it hard to follow. **

More interactive quizzes and discussions would be helpful as just plain lectures and quizzes. Course 2 is a great example to follow that is more engaging.
by Edward L•
Would prefer less theory and more practical use cases

Need to drop course
by Daniel E•
A massive waste of time. Choose another course on the topic. The end assignment was vague and useless. The quizzes are difficult since the lecturer and the visual presentation do not provide much detail or explanation. I finished the project but did not get the certificate because there are no other participants to evaluate. Take that as a sign of the qulity of this course.
by Susan W•
I would not recommend this Course. Some Slides were not explained yet were referred to in the quiz.
Instructor's train of thought/voice was unclear at times. Objectives not covered at the start but were on a slide at closing? No review of the answers to objectives at closing just statement of objectives.
