I love positive psychology and I have some MOOC experience in this field, the best until now were: The Science of Happiness, edX, Prof Simon-Thomas and Prof Keltner, and Positive Psychology, Coursera, Prof Fredrickson. But in my opinion this course was excellent, maybe even better than the others. I do not want to compare the courses, but Prof Raj have something different, something that makes me happy...;))). So, Thank you Prof Raj, Thank you ISB and Thank you Coursera.

Thanks again for putting on a course of such great quality for free - I do realize how much work and effort and money has been spent on it, so its completely awesome!

What an extraordinarily well taught course! I deeply appreciated all the time the professor spent in crafting this course. I delighted in how he used video interviews, recommended books to read, and gave me concrete ways to increase my happiness levels. He was an amazing teacher. He had fabulous energy while teaching and spoke with unbelievable clarity in presenting difficult ideas. Undoubtedly, he deeply cared about being a wonderful teacher. I can boldly state that Professor Ragunathan is one of my top two favorite professors.

The most valuable MOOC I have taken and can be applied to all aspects of career and life choices.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
I just completely finished the course and I can confirm what I already knew to be true in the very beginning... the course is EXCELLENT! I was introduced to Coursera through this course and originally wasn't going to take it because I had already signed up for other courses and thought I knew enough about happiness through my psychology and spiritual backgrounds. Well, I was wrong! This course introduced me to new concepts, all which were backed up with an abundant amount of studies and sources, as well as exercises which really allowed for personal reflection and growth towards one's own happiness. In addition , Prof Raj brings an infectious energy and a passion of the subject to the lectures, which helps to keep students engaged. Especially admirable is his involvement (and that of his team - Catherine) in discussion forums, further emphasizing his engagement and willingness to help. This course has certainly set the bar high for my expectation of MOOCs. I highly recommend it!
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog

Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
The content was so much interesting that it kept me glued to my computer till I finished all of it. Thanks Prof Raj. It is the best course content that I have recieved so far on coursera. I have taken various courses from well known British, American, German and Spanish institutes through various online forums but the amazingly great amount of research that was shared in this course was simply awesome. The recommended readings will keep me occupied for a long time. Going through the course was a self awareness exercise for me and now I can share lots of scientific stuff with people struggling with happiness around me. Once again Thanks Prof Raj. May you and people around you be always happy. Thanks to all the course team for putting up a commendable effort.

This course helped me in my depression clinical trial as well. My Clinical trial doctor was impressed with the improvement I had made and I told him about this course and he stated that more people need to take this course.

Prof.Raj and All behind this wonderful course, When I started watching the videos, I wondered what is there in it to be taught as a formal course? Now I understand how scientific, how much research is going on this 'happiness'

I am loving the course and I have gained a lot of insight into why things occur and the thinking behind the actions. I have also gotten info on tools to use to enhance the feelings I have currently
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
I am quite intrigued and wanted to see how can one be taught to be happy as i thought that 'happiness ' is something to do with one's attitude and how can one 'learn' to change/modify ones attitude to feel happy.But at least somebody is paying attention to this aspect of life too.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Thank you to Raj and Catherine for this wonderful course. I believe to really incorporate all the components in the course, I'll need to take course again. Go raibh maith agaibh!

It is the great course which really help me a lot
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Raj - I applaud you. As a mature student I sat through many courses during my career and found myself bored as sometimes they often covered old ground which I was very familiar with. This course is very refreshing and enlightening. It is just a valuable tool for students or those at the start of their career. I had to learn the hard way and your course has made so much sense.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Raj, everything you are teaching in a wise and gentle manner is what I have found is necessary for recovery from addition. Thank you for a fantastic course which should be viewed by everyone on this planet, especially those with addiction problems!

An interesting course in a perfect moment. I have been so many changes in my life and some of them makes me feel unhappy and I found this course that maybe can give me some tools to change that uncomfortable feeling for that reason I thought that's perfect in this moment.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
55,000 students enroled in the course and that looks set to rise. Congrats Raj. To you and your team, well done and many thanks. This is an excellent course with transformational power. Business schools typically teach us how to manage almost every resource (money, property, competitors, customers, employees, etc) but little attention is paid to the management of our most valuable asset - ourselves. I am most grateful to Raj for providing such a clear roadmap to happiness.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Raj your class was inspirational! You were well prepared, energetic, positive, and encouraging. Think of changing the happiness level for 55,000 people (and all the people they influence!)
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
I had a GREAT time taking this course. Thank you Professor Raj Raghunathan for having such an amazing idea and making the science of happiness not only easy to understand but so incredibly interesting.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
This is one course that stands out among the many usually offered at B-schools and yet it is probably the most important. In the pace of things, we forget what truly makes us happy and this course does a great job of putting things in perspective, an excellent job of distilling everything in an highly enjoyable package. Happy learning!
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
This course deconstructs happiness scientifically and provided proven steps to increase your happiness. The course is based on the discipline of positive psychology. Very interesting course content and superbly delivered.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
The Happiness Course is possibly one of the best things that happened to my life - and I kid you not! I was enthusiastic about life in general, buy after this course, I immediately started to feel so much difference in how I live every single day of my life. Raj, whom I over time developed immense respect and affection for, is a very solid guy. He does not preach, but talks about logic, about facts, about research, this bringing every single person into the fold of this beautiful realm. The manner in which the course is structured, with multiple activities that leave you completely touched, and I'm the process creating happiness for even those you love, is amazing. Very strongly recommend anyone and everyone to take this course, and complete it till the end come what may. You don't get to change your life in such a beautiful way every single day. Buy this advice. This thing is really amazing and this guy is an absolute Rockstar!!
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
It is a great course, actually I am very interested in the topic, because I'm involved in the study of Tourism as a phenomena, and it actually helps me a lot understanding ont only personal misbeliefs, but more my area of expertise. I am really thankfull of taking this course and if it is possible to contribute in any sort of way, please do not hesitate.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
This engaging and often profound course takes the wisdom of many great teachers, researchers, and philosophers and put these truths into an accessible, logical and workable program to create increased personal happiness and meaning. Professor Raj is intelligent and caring, but what makes the difference for “A Life of Happiness…..” is his authenticity and humanity. The world is blessed to have him at this time. Professor Raj brings together the “intellectuals” with the “believers” and perhaps transforms each camp into the other.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Wonderful course. Prof Raj is one of the most compassionate and wonderful human beings that I've come across. Delivers the course with a lot of passion and talks about things that matter to you in life. Generally as a student, one hates assignments but I especially loved the assignments in this course. Each one of them was a gem.

Such a great class for everyone to take! Whether you feel as though you're happy and very in touch with yourself and what makes you happy, or you really haven't thought about it - this course is an excellent way to learn how to improve your life!
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
This course is the best Coursera course I have taken, and one of the best courses I've had anywhere (including courses for the PhD I obtained in clinical psychology). As someone schooled in psychology, I must say that the wide-ranging scope of the research behind happiness included in this course is simply staggering. Prof Raj has managed somehow to interview 20 experts in the field of happiness and related areas. But the really interesting thing about the course is it's not just a review of the scientific literature on happiness. There is a wonderful balance between the scientific findings and self-tests/exercise/knowledge about increasing happiness, so that you can benefit from the course by enhancing your own happiness levels as you go along. There is even a thorough discussion of how to maintain your happiness gains, and email reminders that help you do so. Finally, Prof Raj is a totally hands-on instructor who personally gets involved in the discussion boards, fielding technical problems and providing guidance on concepts.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
This excellent course is a very thorough introduction in learning about the ways that you can approach life that will make you happy or unhappy. I found it to be far more helpful than reading self help books. Through the readings and listening to the lectures, I have come to more deeply understand the concepts that I have been trying to understand for years. Raj and his guests make the material approachable and straightforward. No prior knowledge is required. The practical exercises are similar to those seen in various forms of therapy.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
This course has really earned me MBA(Moving Beautifully towards Awareness) from school of Happiness! This course, I beleive has turned everyone towards being spiritual in real sense, with balancing of material world. I like to convey my heart felt gratitude to Prof.Raj and all the people associated with this wonderful course.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
The course has helped change my outlook on some different situations I encounter in my daily personal life while also helping me better understand myself as I try and figure out my career and life path.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
I have fully completed this course and can honestly say that this was the BEST course I have ever taken! I just wanted to say THANK YOU to your entire team for this course— I've used Coursera before, but I have never had so much fun while doing a course, nor as much motivation to do it! The videos were funny, interesting, and I really enjoyed watching them. They made me smile! So thank you so much! I hope to see more courses like this in the future!
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
A great course, with great involvement from the teacher and assistants. The video lectures are very well structured and clear. The happiness exercises were very well created and easy to follow. This was one of the best course on Coursera. Thank you Prof Raj, Thank you ISB and Thank you Coursera.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
The aspects of happiness taught in this course are based on research and not on religion, esoterism, mysticism (...). The videos are well made and the course's head, Prof. Raj, not only seems to be a happy person himself, he excels in his role and provides a superb learning experience. This course is exceeding all my expectations.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Ideal course for understanding the basic principles of happiness and what separates us from it. The exercises are ingenious and fulfilling, and come with the best of intentions.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Sir, awesome course in terms of content, delivery, quality, coverage, etc, and most importantly Raj sir has broken a prototype that such course cant be thought in MBA classes . Raj Sir god bless you and give more strength to help the needy thanks
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
This has to be one of the most engaging courses i have ever taken. professor Raj Raghunathan has that special quality 
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
I've just finished watching the final set of videos. Raj Raghunathan thank you so much for this wonderful gift. Isn't it interesting that business schools teach how to manage almost every resource (money, property, competitors, customers, employees, etc) but so little attention is paid to the management of what might be our most valuable asset - ourselves? Stay happy Raj.
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
Words simply cannot express the gratitude for your class and how it reminds me that happiness is our own perception - we can be happy as long as we remember to be happy! Your course has redefined happiness in the sense that we do not always have to be jumping for joy to have a fulfilling life!
Happy Smarts by Raj Raghunathan - Happiness Blog
I am so very happy that I joined this course and it just fell into my lap. Prof. Raj, your way of presenting the course with such charm and humour, making the concepts easy to understand and yet concrete, with all the research and effort that you have put into it, are very endearing and has made me really grateful that I joined this course. I am truly hooked and blessed. This course has really come to me at a very perfect time in life and I do intend to follow the steps and create a life of happiness. Thank you very much
