Interesting course, but the quality is rather low at the moment due to the many factual errors in the quizzes. The errors may also make the course confusing for people with little prior knowledge. However, if they manage to fix all mistakes, I think the course does have potential.

I decided to see what our youth are being taught or expected to know before placement and I was surprised by the some of the errors I saw. For instance they referred to the ozone hole as being a consequence of greenhouse gases. Actually it is ozone depleting substances that are the cause of the ozone hole and it is true that some greenhouse gases are also ozone depleting substances, but they are still sowing confusion by mixing up climate change with ozone depletion, these are actually separate issues.
