Excellent course presented extremely well by Prof Mike Brown whose enthusiasm captures you and carries you along for the whole course. I struggled with some of the math, not haven taken physics but carried on and learnt so much. I have had an interest in astronomy for many years but never took it much further than buying a telescope and star atlas and looking up at the night sky from time to time. Since discovering Coursera and FutureLearn and EDx, I have taken other Astronomical courses and this is the hardest so far, but with the best presenter. Highly recommend.

An excellent course with two Professors as co-presenters. Each lecture could be downloaded or transcripts were available as well. Along side each video, was a highlighted transcript for those who had difficulty in hearing the presenters or understanding their accents. The quizzes were all related to the videos, required some thought and all were very enjoyable. There are experiments to complete which are easy to do at relatively little cost except time. Any problems that arose were dealt with quickly by TA's, who were also present in the discussions to help students. Highly recommend this course.
