I started the course off strong. But, I couldn't finish it though because I had other school related activities to tend to while I was attending College in the States. Dr. Philip J. Currie is an awe inspiring instructor because he is very informative in his subject matter, based on his experience in the field and tends to explain things more clearly.

I really loved this course, the graphics were amazing and the lectures were intriguing, fun and full of interesting information. Even though the course material is sometimes difficult to follow, there are great lecture notes that accompany each video (not the slides or subtitles, but more like encyclopedia excerpts, and these were very nicely written and illustrated, and could serve as a book on its own). The quizzes were a bit too easy, and I liked the way you could pick your own pace since all the lectures and the quizzes were posted in advanced, but there were weekly e-mails giving insight into new material, but also in new paleontological discovery around the world. I'd recommend this course to anyone who wants to learn the scientific background about their childhood passion, and to be obnoxious among your friends by claiming that the most of the The Jurassic Parks is actually The Cretaceous Park!
