Great topic and great execution. Course was well-organized and lectures were engaging. Lots of background on game elements, motivation, applications. Quizzes introduced additional material. Writing projects well designed, though not particularly innovative. Peer grading worked well. I've taken four Coursera courses and this was one was probably best. Great job!

Idea of this course was excellent. It's really best to teach critical thinking in the context of specific topics. The problem is that the content was very superficial. There was less than one hour of general lecture for the whole course and about a half hour for the topic of climate change. There were only a couple of references given. The longer lecture on climate change was quite good, but a bit sarcastic and arrogant for my taste. The one good thing was the involvement of the instructor in the discussion fora. However, overall, very disappointing.
