This course was great! It explains everything clearly, and it keeps you involved by asking questions about the material, and keeps you amused with some interesting anecdotes. Highly suggested by me!
I loved taking this course. I learned a lot (The first course I did was DINO 101 and I wanted to dig deeper). The teachers are really passionate and engaging. Cannot wait to do the others courses!
I really enjoyed this course!! I learned a lot from this experience and I hope I can apply what I did learn into my future college and careers

Watched this course with my 9-year-old son who wants to be paleontologist when he grows up. He loved it and did it mainly for him!

I enjoyed this course a lot - all videos, interactive materials, and quiz were engaging, educational and very well thought out.
The course is really good...so much so that I got emotional when I knew this was my last video with the University of Alberta

I completed the course and enjoyed it but did not get my certificate. The link provided did not lead to the certificate :(

very helpful as it is very difficult to learn Dinosaur (for adults) in a systematic way, especially from evolution aspects.

very interesting and highly insightful course about the origin of birds. Very well explained. Bravo to both the lecturers!
I had so much fun with yet another of the UofAs courses. I will forever look at our chickens and pet budgies differently.
