How do revolutions emerge without anyone expecting them? How did social norms about same sex marriage change more rapidly than anyone anticipated? Why do some social innovations take off with relative ease, while others struggle for years without spreading? More generally, what are the forces that control the process of social evolution –from the fashions that we wear, to our beliefs about religious tolerance, to our ideas about the process of scientific discovery and the best ways to manage complex research organizations?

This course really enhanced my understanding of collective intelligence, however, it would be great if instructors provide lecture slides also to revise the course whenever required.
A Crisp yet effective overview of some of the most critical works in the field of Networking. Anyone from the fields of Management, Sociology, Anthropology et al should try the MOOC.
I have never learned agent model in social network courses in graduate school. This course brings me up to date about the aggregate effects of unintended individual behaviors
An good course that will provide gist of Agent Based Modeling with out dragging it too long. Introduces an Agent Based Modeling software NetLogo with examples and codes.
Although the course was very short and the homework were so easy, I'm quite satisfied by the insight I got from Prof Centola
Fantastic course! Very good introduction to network dynamics for someone who has never explored this field of research.
excellent course accessible to all. highly recommended.Really looking forward to more courses from this team.
Interesting course! Concepts are very well explained, but it misses practical classes in NetLogo.
Very down-to-earth. Highly recommended for anyone who wants basic knowledge on network dynamics.
This is an excellent introductory course. Highly recommended for students of social sciences.
It was a very good class and I learned a lot. Thanks for sharing and continue the good job.
An excellent and inspiring introduction to a new approach to sociology.
Simple concise videos. Crisp explanations. Cool demos with Netlogo.
Very interesting course. Occasionally test questions are too vague.
Both Professors easily give an overview of Network Dynamics
Amazing course! Taught me a ton. Buying a new one real soon
I whould like to have more of the models practicing.
Great introductory course, although a bit too easy.
