I have just completed “Cosmology”, the last of four courses in the Edx/ANU Astrophysics X Series. I really enjoyed all four courses. The way they are presented is engaging; the content is presented on a projection screen and the two lecturers stand in front and discuss the content. There are also some videos are of laboratory visits and guest interviews. The friendly exchanges between the two lecturers appears genuine and adds another layer of interest. One of the most rewarding outcomes from doing these courses occurred when I attended a public lecture about the Giant Magellan Telescope. I could understand everything the speaker was saying - this was really satisfying! I am glad I did these courses as I feel I now have a solid basis for understanding the exciting events that are likely to occur in the future. Thanks Paul and Brian.
