Summary This is an excellent course. I learned a lot about the psychological reasons which influence the behaviour of peoples. Especially the group behaviour topic has shown me a lot of psychological principles which I now include in my daily working life.

The course contains four assignments. In most of this assignments you have to evaluate something from a psychological point of view. These assignments will be rated by other course participants. Furthermore at the end of the course there is a final exam with multiple choice questions.
