WOW, I learned a lot form this and it was fairly educational but not overwhelming or difficult. This instructor really gets the points across without being to easy or hard. A very good class.
Celebrate your inner fish as you swim along with this awesome course charting our earliest ancestors. Very well constructed and delivered once again by the team at the University of Alberta.

I haven't completed this course yet. Self pace and enjoying the lectures and videos. I've taken another Univ of Alberta course on Marine Reptiles which was great! I enjoy the Paleontol

Excellently done and narrated course. It makes me want to know more about paleontology and evolution. It is amazing what diversity of life this planet has produced.

I think this was a great module wich gave a good insight into the early vertebrate evolution. I willl definatly reccomend it to any who is interessted in this topic.

Excellent course and good depth for beginners with some general biology background. Hope they continue it for entire evolution of vertebrates. Fantastic. A

This is perhaps the best and most enjoyable course that I have ever taken in Paleontology , I also learned a lot and will always treasure the experience !
By Tony W•
Everything you need!
This is the first of a great series - first-class lecture notes, well illustrated lectures and plenty of links to further study.
By Aastha M•
it is good for maths students who haven't studied biology and struggle with understanding palaeontology. vertebrates have been explained very well.
By Keenan R•
Excellent course, presentation, presenter, and material. Hope to see if other subjects of the Palaeozoic would be covered in future courses
By Arturo M•
An excellent presentation of paleontology by W. Scott Persons. A very amazing journey through the Devonian fishes that evolved to tetrapods.
By Ajit P•
A fairly accessible course to vertebrate evolution that thought me a lot about parts of my body and ancestry that I had taken for granted.
By Bryan K•
Very informative information on the vertebrae evolution. I feel so much better now knowing Im a living tetrapod and I came from a fish,
By Krajc, D•
Beautifully made. A new insight of nature. Awesome to see, listen, think about and recognize development of evolution in todays species.
By Andrés V X•
The course was concise because you learn the major charecteristics of the groups of fishes and how they evolved into another group.
By Diana V•
excelente! creo que nunca había comprendido realmente la evolución, fue una experiencia maravillosa, interactiva y bien explicada.
By Richard R•
Really informative, I recommend doing further reading
and writing things down/taking notes rather than just watching the videos.
