I had a fantastic time completing this course. Each lesson represented an area I was interested in and served as a something to look forward to on a week to week basis to increase my knowledge of mountainous regions and to further stimulate my interest in exploring Canada and the rest of the worlds mountain environments.

I only enrolled to watch the videos. The production value was fantastic, and the information was very interesting. There were many details and perspectives I couldn't have anticipated, and it was presented in a way that allows a layman to this topic to understand clearly. I couldn't recommend this course more highly.

I absolutely loved this course. The format worked great and I would, in a heartbeat, sign up for another mountains course like this. (Mountains 201 anyone?). Especially if it focused on Canadian mountains (BC/AB in particular) in a little more detail. I soo look forward to taking more of your courses, Zac and David.

Very influencial and knowledgeful course on mountain biodiversity, ecosystem, features and landscapes. Also helps one understand the way we are impacting mountain sustainability. There are short guides on nuts and bolts of trekking like pro-tips. Overall really enjoyed the course with interactive learning features.

Excellent course. I learned a lot about mountains, ecosystems, lore, history, geography and geology. I think the course might have been even more effective with more points listed on the screen. Some accents are difficult and you presented lots of concepts, so having more notes appearing on the screen would help.

Canada has such a well informed people and very passionate scientists. Thank you very much for University of Alberta.

I have lived in Calgary since 1994 (aged 11). I love the mountains here. I have visited the Alps a handful of times, as well as the Andes once. It was a pleasure to learn about the geology and nature of these majestic places. What a good course. What a surprise to see our prime minister in your course. Awesome!

I was recommended this course by an old friend. I was hesitant taking an online course but was very surprised at how much I enjoyed taking time out of my day to sit and learn about the mountains, whether it be about theory, culture, biodiversity, stewardship, etc. Can't wait to see if there's a follow up course!

This course is fantastic! Multiple perspectives to perceive mountains, immediate reply to forum's questions, exhaustive information in each section...All these characteristics make this course my favorite one among more than 40 MOOCs that I've taken. Thanks for all the efforts involved in creating this course!

Excellent material and information. Very well done videos and assignments. The teachers have an ability to deliver 'class' in an interesting and entertaining way. The guests and interviews were very adequate to the subject and helped expand the information given in the course. Great quality content all around.

Great variety of instructors and topics to keep one interested. The two main speakers could be careful how often the repeat certain 'linking words' - i.e.: "however" and could be a bit more dynamic, but this is only meant as constructive criticism. I'd definitely do a similar course on a different subject!

This was my first MOOC and I really enjoyed the course. The material covered had a lot of diversity yet tied everything back to mountains, and it was really enlightening. I also appreciated the course notes at the end as it was a challenge to recall all the information that was shared in the videos.

As a hiker and casual outdoorsman who recently visited Banff, Jasper & Yoho this was an incredibly interesting course! I teach environmental science and will definitely use much of the material here in my class. But it's also just really interesting to know. Thanks for such a fascinating course!

I absolutely loved Mountains 101 and I recommend it for anyone that is pursuing a career in orology, or wants to appreciate mountains for their beauty. It gave me great insight into what can be done to save the mountains and their biota, and I also now appreciate mountains more than I did before.

Already more fascinated than before about the mountain world. Also, I have to say that I'm a bit jealous for not being Canadian, but hopefully one day I'll be there, in such a beautiful country that you guys have.
Greetings from Colombia, and thanks for sharing this amazing amount of knowledge :)
