TOP REVIEWS FROM DINO 101: DINOSAUR PALEOBIOLOGY
I really enjoyed the class. I learned a lot and was corrected some things. My only issues with this course were with the quizzes not work some times and the fossil viewer not work at all.
Excellent course - the videos and lectures complemented each other well, the questions in review and quizzes were thought-provoking, and the content was both broad and deep, more than I expected.
Great introduction to the world paleontology and the general understanding of ancient (Mesozoic mostly) life! Course provides valuable information and is easy to learn. Highly recommend!
The course is solid. It was a good decision investingtime in this course. Betsy was explaining things really nice. I would like to thank her and the other instructors. Also thanks to Coursera.
