I think kthis was a great couurse, I liked how there were multiple instructors and speakers to make it interesteing to listen to. Although I understand the forums as a way of simulating a class discussion, I have to question if there were real discussions or just people making posts for the sake of a grade. There were sometimes I got actual responses to my posts but most of the time it was someone putting in their 2 cents into a vaccuum. I'm sure there are a lot of people who appreciate the forums and the conversations they may get out of them, but personally, I didnt get much out of the forum expereince and would have much rather just taking the lectures and the quizzes and leaving the forums as a "nice to have" instead of a mandatory activiy for the grade.
I thought this course was great fun and very interactive. you culd build your own dinosaur, track the development of the earth and view fossils in a 3d viewer. the staff was fun and tried very hard to be engaging. Dinosaur lover or not, this is a fun class with really great information.
It was good information although the instructor seemed to read from the slides and didnt stray too far fromthe content on them. It would have been nice if he was a little more conversational.
Very informative course with a teacher who is very passionate about his subject. I am not great at mathematics so I found a lot of the equations difficult, but I still found I was able to understand the concepts and gained a lot out of the course.
I thought the course would be more about the theoretcial part of planning meals and nutrition. Cooking and sharing recipes was not what I appreciate.
IT was a very educational course that helped debunk the myths behind vaccines. I find myself being able to hold intellegent conversations about vaccines and enjoying the knowledge I gained from this course.
I wish I had enough time to do the projects in this course. it was very well executed and really makes you thiik about your belief system and how you actually act in the world. Very eye opening and made me want to change myself and the world for the better.
This was the first course that I took through coursera and it got me hooked. the lecturers where AMAZING! not only did it change what I knew about AIDS, it opened my eyes to how other places in the world saw the epidemic as well. ver y well executed and a thoughly enjoyable class!
