I had awesome experience while studying a t this course. Must-attend in case you are interested in society psychology
Felt a bit light and not necessary, but it was good info still. Took pleasure in it and actually enjoyed the easy homework.
All the videos and assignments were interesting and informative, I am just not sure how relevant they were to the specialization.
This was an excellent primer on how social collaboration and crowdsourcing works. Gave a good understanding of the concepts involved when creating such platforms.
