Thank you for this excellent course! I really enjoyed the short videos, the concise notes, and quick quizzes (both at the end of each lesson, as well as the main point quizzes throughout the videos).

Even as a dinosaur nerd, I still learned a lot. Instructional videos with embedded quizzes were very well constructed. I'm just a bit bummed that I couldn't access the fossil viewer for some reason.

It was fun! The questions in the middle of the video were good to maintain attention, although a few of them seemed out of place. Over all a good experience.

Lots of fun and I learned a lot. However, I was never able to get the fossil viewer working, which was a great shame. Thank you to the team of Dino 101.

Very interesting course, sometimes there was too much information but it proved that this course is complete and from very clever sources.

Most of the question segments in between the video did not show the images that were shown, making it difficult to answer some of them

The first part is far more interesting than the second one. A good MOOC, not too hard, but still serious and full of notions.

Super informative I loved learning about the dinosaurs, however the delivery of the content was sometimes dry and boring

The videos are entertaining but if the pdf is read through, its simple enough to take and pass the quiz.
