I really enjoyed this class - the course material was interesting and relevant and the lectures - by the professor and his many guest lecturers - were on current and important issues. I found the assignments to be very thought- provoking and the approach to be deliberately non-biased. I feel much more informed about food systems and many other food-related topics after completing this course.

This course was so informative! I really enjoyed the articles and the forum activities. The professor and staff were more active in the forums than in any of the other four classes I have taken. I learned a lot and actually am trying to make a commitment to eating somewhat more sustainably. New weekly activities probably should have been posted at a consistent time, but that is the only complaint I have about what was otherwise a fabulous, informative course. I would definitely take another MOOC from Dr. Hill if he offered one!
