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.

This course gives you an overview of renewable energy, energy policies, and international agreements adopted for climate change. The course is more generic in approach, mainly to beginner level. However, more practical content like energy exercises, and policy case studies added to this course would make this course more demanding and interesting.

Very useful course which gives insights into the role that renewable energy has to play in the coming days, reduce the use of fossil fuels. Transfer or technology, use or nuclear energy, , govt policies and COP 21 agenda etc which are discussed and elaborately given in the writings. wish to do more such courses.

The weekly assigment of 350 words is particularly useful. In order to write extensively, the students need to read the Course sources and find other available sources on the Web.

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Many of the links are outdated or paywalled, making assignments and readings harder.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.
