This course is so poorly organized and presented that it is generous to call it a course.

This course is nearly identical to Sustainable Innovation for Subsistence Marketplaces.

The course is poorly planned and elaborated. It seems that there is no center theme or theory behind the course.

Dont takie this course!

What is really annoying about this course is that your peer-reviewed submissions never have enough people to actually review your material. This means that, even if you are quick, you cannot finish the course. This entails that you have to pay at least twice and the only help provided is the suggestion to post a request to review your submission in the community forum. But this forum is empty and noone replies to your requests.

Moreover, this course does not have a support. Noone to talk to if you have problems or questions as the forum is completely empty and no contact details of anyone provided anywhere.
