What do people say about these diabetes courses?

I found this course to be extremely interesting, informative and very easy to understand… As a non-practising registered nurse, although still working within the health industry, I enjoy keeping up to date with information relating to the medical profession.

Learner on Understanding Insulin and Diabetes

This course was one of the best MOOCs I have done and I have done a few. The videos and the graphics explained everything really clearly and I learnt a few things reading the posts from my fellow students.
