I had no prior experience with this subject and I found it really challenging. It tested my maths but I did pass - just - which was a great relief. The course was well presented by likeable lecturers but because of the nature of the subject I think it would have benefited from more examples and earlier access to results and explanations for the exam questions. I bought the text book, but had to work really hard to understand the more complex areas. But it was very rewarding when I did finally work it all out!
I had quite substantial experience with this subject and I found the course repetitive, insufficiently rigorous and too easy. There was no advance guidance that this was really an entry level course. That said, it was nicely presented and had some fun parts. I stuck with it because there were areas where I had something to learn. Thank you Scott.
This is the first review I've written after doing 7 MOOCs because I only like to commit my opinion to writing if it's positive. Anthony's GIS course is a beacon standing out, leading the way for other courses - this is how it should be done. It's engaging, reasonably rigorous, well-judged to appeal to educated beginners and best of all, it forces you to engage with the subject. You can't put his lectures on double speed or skip the assignments as you can on some MOOCs. Congratulations on this course - quite outstanding!
