    The instructors state in the beginning, that they put a lot of effort into making this course fun... And it was! The course provides an overview on history of emergence and treatment of infectious diseases as well as developments and future considerations for prevention and treatment. The information is explained very well and supported by very entertaining animations, which help to memorize the course material. The additional readings and videos provided each week were informative and offered increased understanding of each topic. This was the 8th course I completed on Coursera, and eventhough I enjoyed all, this the only one I rated with 5 stars. Enjoy!

    As someone with a laboratory background, I would have liked to have seen more about lab methods, particularly microscopic differentiation of helminth ova and larvae. I hope these experts consider creating a second course at some point with some more rare stuff (e.g. pentastomiasis, gnathostomiasis), and also maybe some fundamental topics of parasitology (morphology, life cycles, immunology / methods of immune system evasion). A veterinary (or zoology) parasitology course would be also be very interesting and relevant. Sincerest thanks to the course providers!

    Loved it. The course is very insightful and I had never seen medical parasitology from this perspective.

    This is an excellent course for medical students to learn parasitology. Not only will Prof. Wu teach us basic knowledge clearly and solidly, but she will also combine different teaching pattern to achieve the best performance. I learned more than medical knowledge. Anyone who take interest in parasitology or infectious diseases should have a look!

    All in all, this is really a 5-star course! Fantastic!

    I am a mathematician who is primarily researching in mathematical control theory, who wanted to have a broader overview of epidemiology necessarily with biological aspects and mathematical epidemiology. This course was very helpful! I definitely recommend this course to anyone who is interested in learning epidemiology with possible directions of further studies and research. I make this an opportunity to thank everybody who taught the course and put everything together. Excellent job!

    Well-developed course with excellent content and a good variety of basic science and clinical content. An excellent overview for first-time learners of parasitology, or a good quick refresher for those who have encountered the subject before. The course's particular strength is the wonderful faculty from Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College, whose field trips to see vector habitats in vivo help bring the basic science to life. I strongly recommend this course!

    It is a really good course if you know how to organize your time. I suggest you to print first all the presentations and you can save time. I think if you take just 20min at day listening classes and doing the final test, you will learn a lot. IMPORTANT print to life cycle to understand better. I found some mistakes but I give 5 stars because all of them did a great job. (sorry about my English, im learning yet).

    Excellent course! Doctors are great and despite Chinese, difficult to understand at times, it does not take away the brilliance of the course or the content presented! Thank you

    Enjoyed the course tremendously, and it was a wonderful refresher course that I am using to keep me current with some of the tangential parts of my field of expertise. I would recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in infectious disease, epidemiology, microbiology, or related fields. The videos were short, direct, and enlightening and not dry and boring light some educational videos can tend to be. I am planning on taking a number of other courses offered through Edx.

    I would like to thank the instructors for designing such a wonderful course which concentrates on every aspect of epidemics. I thoroughly enjoyed myself through this learning process. The concepts were explained in a simple manner with focus on arousing curiosity and interest in the mind of the learners while giving insights into the world of epidemics and its dynamics. Highly recommend this course for those who are interested in disease biology and its impacts on the world.
