Introduction to Forensic Science

Written 9 months ago
It was a nice course, having two cases to solve was definitely fun.

It's helpful because you start seeing things better, and avoid thinking that cases are easy to solve, as an example:

In one of the cases reviewed, each time they had to take more and more fingerprints to expand the search for the killer, reaching even 50000 fingerprints at a time when there were no electronics databases availables. Despite not being checked in the door to door, avoid paying taxes and not voting, all things that made it harder for them to track the killer, they were able to pinpoint the one guy whose fingerprints finally matched.

Now obviously, maybe some cases aren't seen in that much detail, but remember, we're talking about cases that sometimes lasted for several years. So overall they did a great job in making a compact yet educational course for this subject.

Astrobiology and the Search for Extraterrestrial Life

It's an entertaining and easy to follow course. From what life is, how it started, to how we search for life on other planets, it's a must take for fans of astrobiology and anything space related!

Health Informatics in the Cloud

Written 9 months ago
It's a survey course on health informatics, with a focus on the US healthcare.

You get an introduction to various data & interoperability standards, there's several interviews with people from government and private sector, and overall its main focus is to introduce many concepts and initiatives.

There's also some activities that you won't be able to do, because the links are obsolete.

Epidemics | 流行病学

Written 9 months ago
Everything in this course is interesting! learning control measures, how to interpret epidemics graphics, being introduced to philogenetics, reviewing some outbreak cases.

Some of the supplementary reading included also makes you start thinking about how effective it's to overrely on certain media to inform the population of the risks of being contagied, without considering certain human factors that have an impact on wheter most people will follow the suggestions or not. Something similar can be learned on a reading regarding nutrition.

But apparently this course was revamped at some point, and that new version is available on Coursera.

So You Want to Become a Biomedical Engineer

Written 4 weeks ago
This is actually a really interesting/useful exploratory course for people who are unsure about either getting a degree in biomedical engineering or getting into the field, it presents you with several examples of careers exploring different areas of focus, so no matter what your goal is when considering this profession, you'll likely find inspiring people who'll be talking about their roles and research.

Highly recommended for people about to complete high school, or at any point as undergraduate, or for anyone really, who could like to get into the amazing field of biomedical engineering.
