I absolutely LOVED Big History! It's so interesting and insightful!! I highly recommend everyone to take this course, you will learn a lot about the world! Thank you Professor Christian and Baker!! :)
Finally! A creation myth based on evidence and multiple scientific disciplines for all humans is here! The time for stories based on speculation and superstition for the chosen group is finally over.

I'm still not completely convinced "big history" is really a "discipline," but it is an intriguing and innovative approach to organizing our understanding of our existence, and I very much enjoyed the broad scope and transdisciplinary approach. Learned a lot!

Ambitious coverage of the human understanding of our reality to date. Gaps in knowledge are left for future finding, while the presentation of what we do know with some certainty is highlighted. The 4th lesson video of week 1 is a masterpiece.

Enjoyable course and I appreciated the interdisciplinary nature. At times, I felt like I wanted to delve deeper into the content, but I understand that this MOOC, like most others, are breadth courses designed for incoming Freshmen.

A really well structured course filled with rich knowledge and important details. On completion of this course, the meaning of the word 'History' won't be the same again.

The course may include a unit on hierarchy , interlinks and patterns which can be observed in every aspect of man made things with respect to nature.

The course content had met its objectives. I loved the way interdisciplinary sciences were explained precisely from Astronomy to paleontology to economics
By Bart V•
Interesting idea to approach everything from an idea of increasing complexity, but due to the nature of the subject they can't really go into any detail.
By John D•
Very nice overview, but it seemed to be too much information for the limited time. There should be a separate six week course for each threshold.
By Deleted A•
This Astronomy course is good but for people that are more interesting in the big bang theory and how the universe came into existence today.
By Abhishek S M•
great knowledge expansion in unique way. this collective knowledge gave me a very wide perspective view of humanity and its existence.
By Arian F•
Amazing, draws you in with the bonus points but keeps you invested with the surprising amount of detail and the interesting topics.
By Marcus M•

Interesting concepts here and loved seeing all the connections. At times it was a bit too cutesy in its presentations.
