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.
Very interesting with excellent instructional videos at a relaxing pace

Basic, but well explained for beginners, solid knowledge afterwards

I wish I could use the fossil viewer. I couldn't access it at all
Engaging intro course with superb visuals and virtual specimens.
Pretty good, but the video quality wasn't too great.

An interesting course that had plenty of material that was new, informative and well presented. However it felt some what dated and I was very disappointed that the fossil viewer only worked on one occasion - and when it did the images seemed low resolution and not reflective of current technology. That said I enjoyed the presentations and learnt a lot, even if I found the names of species, groups and so on confusing and overwhelming. I would have liked to see more images (and at higher resolution) of some of the animals/concepts being discussed. That said, I want to emphasis that I learnt a lot and will make time to read further on the topic).
Good for beginners, but as good as I could've been. the facts used in this are like from 2014. I would benefit from using more up to date facts, could've also focused more on some non-dinosaurian animals.

It is a fascinating subject, that's why I listened, however,
The young lady giving the lectures to be polite should have a desk job. Very poor public speaker with nervous hand gestures, monotone delivery,hard swallowing. What is an interesting subject matter becomes insufferable. That said, perhaps the use of charts listing types, locations and ancestry, specific features, etc. would help keep track of a vast subject matter, alas, now more of a jumble than I had anticipated. Also, please eliminate a good many of the intra-lecture pop quizzes, unless your target audience is 8th and 9th graders. Unnecessarily simplistic, bordering on insulting. The week end tests are well thought out, thought provoking.
