“I am Abdullah Bargo medical student who lives in Khartoum Sudan in the past I had many problems in the research methodology course at my school but when I watched Dr. Greg's videos which were flexible, affordable, and relevant to the material of the course I could not imagine the person that I have become.”

“I'm Alicia, an epidemiologist living in Canada. My career path took me into field work in East Africa for a number of years and after recently starting a new position with a research focus, I was looking for a refresher course on research methodology. Dr Martin’s course "Introduction to Research Methods" was an ideal fit. The videos were well-paced and engaging. Dr Martin gave just the right amount of detail – enough to refresh my memory and add to my understanding, and to point me in the right direction for things that may need a deeper dive. I particularly enjoyed the discussions of study design and research ethics. I left the course feeling confident that I could design, implement, and share research at a professional level. I’ve already recommended the course to others and plan on taking more courses myself.”
