The content of the course is equivalent to the content of a semester university course
, with the exception of writing an essay on your project (but you can also get help
in writing an essay
from us using the mentoring service
The course will require approximately 60 hours of your time to read the materials
and perform the assignments well. We recommend reorganizing your life so that you can spend a couple of hours every day on the course. There is no need to stretch these hours for several months: by the end of the course, then you will no longer remember what was there at the beginning.
The course is passed at the pace at which it is convenient for you to take it
(self-paced). No deadlines or prodding, everyone is grown up here. When you solve all the tasks of the course (checked by a computer), you will receive a certificate
of completion (but note that the answers to the questions must be justified in writing, and with empty justifications or with gibberish instead of justifications, we will
not issue a certificate). Many people choose to take the course twice (or at least reread the textbook from the beginning): after completing the last section, it becomes much clearer what and why was said in the first sections.
The program of the course "Systems Thinking 2020" is newer than
the program of the course A. Levenchuk "Systems Thinking" on Coursera,
it corresponds to the edition of A. Levenchuk's textbook "Systems Thinking 2020", which was published after the course was created on Coursera.
Our course contains the full text of the textbook
, additional materials
, plus assignments with study cases
with many questions in each case. The course
does not contain video lectures, because our experience shows that for some reason
it is not possible to master system engineering thinking using video materials,
it is imperative to read the textbook.
