Good course and I got more about the course
Iam so lucky to have this online course and I strongly believe that you will provide more opportunities for students including me.
I will recommend this for my friends also
The Course was really great. . Easy to understand with the videos and lots of great things that apply to our work and personal life. After this course I will be able to improve my WLB.
Really does take about 4 hours or so per week - I kept falling behind! Luckily on EdX I could push my dates forward a few times to stick with it.
The videos were engaging and although many things are repeated throughout, I think it helps you remember the key concepts. I definitely had some concrete takeaways from the course that I can apply, but I would have liked more examples of how, as a team leader, I can help implement strategies for my team members and their happiness, or even what can be done to change culture at a company if you are in a position to do that.
The content was simple and good, yet reached depth and breath beyond what I expected. I was taken back by the science behind simple concepts and the impact it can have on how we live and how productive/successful companies can be when intentional plans are put into place. The list of powerful corporations that have gained an edge due to the implementation is impressive. I think the content can be applied to daily life as well as the number of hours we dedicate at work. This course caused much reflection for me as I reflected on how I work/interact with others.
It is an interesting course. It has an organized way to present a management style that is different from what we have experienced as common. It is titled happiness, but it has a lot of elements linked to respect and dignity, things that are valuable to people even when they dont seem to know it. It is definitely an introduction to a journey in leadership that can be applied in many ways not just work.
Overall, it is a good course and it has helped me to refresh things which I learned long back by attending off-line courses. I also learned some new things which I didn’t know before.
While learning I found this course too lengthy and due to which felt bored in completing this course.
I truly love this course!! I think this course well introduces happiness as a strategy to the business table and gives you a tangible roadmap to achieve better leadership, better culture, and better outcomes! I learned a lot from this course and I believe that I can apply this knowledge into my career!
Anonymous completed this course.
I really enjoyed learning all about how important happiness is in work places. I definitely learnt a lot of new and interesting things through this course, and would recommend it to anyone! :)
This is really new things which i have learned through this course. Videos are really good but few things are repetitive. I would like to see more practical examples for better understanding.
While the content for the course is good, the quizzes and tests don't always line up with the information learned. There are also many spelling mistakes which decreases the credibility of the course.
There are too many mistakes within the quizzes to make the course credible. Unfortunately you can choose the right answer(s) and it will mark it wrong. Then when you look at the right answer, after using all your chances to get it right, you find out that you had a correct answer at one point.
I truly loved this course.
I finished it in 10 days, couldn't stop learning as learning has never been this fun. The topic is essential for everybody who wants to be happy personally, professionally and it really puts together the know how to unlocking a high quality true happiness in life .
Informative, educational, professional, fun, very well made, with direct applicability to one's personal and work environments. In one word, excellent!
Course components are very well connected. Good amount of repetition of important concepts. Good energy. Good illustrations. Good presentation!
I thank you for your valuable time in presenting a wonderful course for people and I wish you success and happiness
