It was a really amazing and an informative course. If you are interested to know how things work in the Arctic region and how the climate varies in the Arctic, this is a must do course.
Great! I love the fact that it is a very simple course and information is easy to understand! I also adore the professionalism that is present in every lecture. Absolutely fantastic!

The content of the course is very interesting and deals with a problem that is generating more and more negative effects on the planet, not only on the Arctic.
The script is well developed, although the videos could be supplemented with more information, especially graphics.
Questions that are asked in the video allow us to better understand the contents, that detail is very successful.
Evaluations have a certain complexity, which makes it possible to analyze the substance of each question in great detail.
My thanks to Dr. Paul Myers for this course.

really interesting, it's a really good base for all to understand the Arctic and a rebound to understand the climat change. I would like to learn more in the pdf lesson, if you'll be able to add some optional lessons to read I would appreciate, but for sur I'll take the next course. It well structure and explain. The other thing is about the test it will be interesting to have all the good answer after we've pass it. Just to understand our mistake

Content was very good. I didn't liked the assignments, they were too short and the answering options were too narrow; sometimes they could be misinterpreted and led to a confusing missing point. I would recommend to add several more questions for each assignment, chosen random for each attempt, put a limit on total attempts and give feedback on answers. Thanks for the course, I enjoyed it a lot; short but precise.

This is a good overall picture of the arctic covering a wide range of topics that are being affected by climate change. The quiz that are spaced throughout the videos are a good break from just watching.
Perhaps the presentation, while enthusiastic, was a bit static and fairly long in length. This could possibly be improved by having different presenters or more visuals during the lecture.

The course was enjoyable and I definitely learned a lot more about the arctic and climate change. I felt the content was a bit static and having done Mountains 101 with University of Alberta, I thought it would have made a big difference to visit some of the places mentioned, to show the problems occurring, and see interviews with researchers working in the Arctic.

Very interesting course on the Arctic. As an introduction, I appreciated the broad overview of the things affecting the Arctic and thus the global climate. As a neophyte, some of the more technical, scientific aspects were hard to follow but were just as interesting to understand; having the course notes to go back to was helpful!

Very interesting course that covers the the Arctic and how it has been impacted by climate change. Overall a qualitative discussion of the Arctic climate that references more detailed quantitative data. The summary sheets for each week are a really helpful reference for the class and beyond.

Good info. Instructor had rather odd body language, but friendly. Had trouble passing a couple of section tests due to "check all that apply" questions. Sections on ocean and atmosphere circulation and global warming rather boring and a little harder to follow. Interesting class overall.

Surprisingly thorough course, although the lectures can be improved and more material can be included in the lecture notes. I personally wasn't keen on watching the lecture material and only studies the notes, maybe a point to improve.

This course was great, but I can't find the other UArctic courses mentioned, particularly the one about Arctic Cultures! I would love to learn more, any info would be much appreciated!

I found the course informative, but the quizzes to be a problem as there were too many multiple answers, so was near impossible to complete the quizzes correctly

Good course, very informative.
Professor was a little stiff, but this is the first MOOC I've ever taken - so maybe that's the way you have to teach.
By Graham K•
Nice overview, gives a good appreciation for changes happening in the Arctic. Sometimes the lecture material is a bit dry and repetitive/slow.
By Roberto D•
A very good review of the main topics related to the Arctic and climate change. Final lesson tests are sometimes confusing.
By Franck L•
The content was good and very instructive but the videos and graphic material could be more dynamic and interactive.
By Sophie B•
It was a very good course. All of the topics were explained perfectly for anyone to understand. Very pleased.
By Ron G•
Very well organized and presented. Good visual aids accompanying the lectures. Highly recommended.

Great introduction to the artic region, its people, economy, environment and global importance.
By Gina W•
it was a very informative course. The presenter was easy to listen too and likeable.
By Anne G•
Very interesting. Easy to understand. Prof seemed very enthusiastic about the topic.

Love the open-book quizzes but hate the time limit as someone with test anxiety
