Course Description

Over 70% of our planet is ocean, and life itself evolved in the sea so comeand join us on this tour of Planet Ocean!

Have you ever wondered about the diversity of marine biota in our oceans? Doyou know what a nudibranch is? Or how a kelp forest functions? Did you realisethat the ocean ‘pumps’ carbon? Are you interested in how marine systems; fromcoral reefs to Antarctic ecosystems are managed?

This course will introduce you to the fascinating world of our oceans. Youwill learn about marine life and key features of the ocean system. You willalso explore some of the stressors on marine systems caused by human activity.Finally, this course will cover how society might sensibly approach managingthose threats into the future.

What will I learn?

  • How life has evolved in the sea
  • How marine food webs are structured

I learned a fair amount about the ecology of the oceans, and how it is changing. I would like to have had more of the beautiful pictures and videos of sea life, but I admit that wouldn't actually add much to the information content of the course. I didn't like the camera angles, that sometimes showed the instructors looking at the camera and other times looking off to one side.
