Last week, I completed my 6-week online course about “Leading Diversity, Equity & Inclusion” with Northwestern University and GetSmarter!
It was quite intense and challenging but also highly interesting and inspirational!

It’s a greater pleasure to have completed this course. The journey has been challenging but interesting.

I have learned a lot from the course and I now see data differently. Thank you University of Cape Town for this well-structured course.

I signed up for an online course during the pandemic, thinking that it would be possible for me to get it done.

Well, I was wrong. Learning and working in the same space all day long was more taxing than I thought, so I couldn’t get it done.

A couple of days later I requested to do the course on a later date, but they could not do that because the terms stated that it’s not possible.

Well, how thoughtful of the company, it’s always nice to have educational institutions who care for their students.

I do NOT recommend taking a course at this company.

I am unclear how this South African-based education technology company has contracts with some of the best universities in the world to offer online educational programs.

Their customer service is appalling. One has to go through multiple menu items to get to the right department and then remain on hold for ages, sometimes disconnected.

They use cheap phone lines so the connection to the South African operators is poor at best. They know nothing about the courses and are generally ill-equipped to offer any kind of service or support. They are just a booking agent with very poor infrastructure.

I would not recommend dealing with them and am very surprised such prestigious universities work with them.
