https://www.coursera.org/learn/co...ct-tracing

In this introductory course, students will learn about the science of SARS-CoV-2 , including the infectious period, the clinical presentation of COVID-19, and the evidence for how SARS-CoV-2 is transmitted from person-to-person and why contact tracing can be such an effective public health intervention. Students will learn about how contact tracing is done, including how to build rapport with cases, identify their contacts, and support both cases and their contacts to stop transmission in their communities. The course will also cover several important ethical considerations around contact tracing, isolation, and quarantine. Finally, the course will identify some of the most common barriers to contact tracing efforts -- along with strategies to overcome them.

It's a $49 value.


Special promotion: Course + Certificate for FREE

One free enrollment per person. Free enrollment available until December 31, 2020. Your promotion will be applied at checkout.

I originally could not see the offer: a banner at the top of the screen.

If you can't see it, try a different browser or incognito mode and turn off all ad / tracking blockers. Although, it still wouldn't work in standard Chrome with them turned off.

REALLY stupid web design. So, don't take a design course from these jokers.

Certificate costs $49. So the "value" in the OP is blowing smoke.
The course itself is free. Look for promo to get certificate free as well.

I got a $49 credit at checkout for the certificate.

The course itself is free. If you want to pay for certificate of completion, that will cost you. Typical for this site.
They're having a promotion for the certificate, I thought my screenshot showed that.

If none of you are seeing the "free certificate", reload your page. You should see a banner that says:

Special promotion: Course + Certificate for FREE
Courtesy of Bloomberg Philanthropies, this Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Health course is free

One free enrollment per person. Free enrollment available until December 31, 2020. Your promotion will be applied at checkout.

Again, if you do not see this banner, reload the page, otherwise you won't get the promotion.

DO NOT choose audit. Choose the 49 dollar value. It will checkout as zero.

Thanks for pointing that out. I got it to work in Chrome Incognito. Horrible web design.
