A course with a light workload and an easy difficulty. Aside from that I think it's a fine course in its genre. Sort of an appetiser or side dish. The course does not delve all that deeply into the theory of critical thinking but invites you to become aware of common pitfalls when consuming information from a variety of sources. I think "Sceptical Reading of Online Articles" is a more apt title for this course.
The course is a good way to learn about the basics of "critical thinking" and provides you with reading material and a basic background of a few global challenges i.e. climate change, population growth, fair trade. I think it's leveled mainly at non-academics and teaches things like evaluating arguments and sources in a step-by-step manner. Very clear, take-you-by-the-hand teaching style.
