Excellent and informative course - a great deal of factual information packed in. Very well presented by a range of experts in different fields.
Excellent course. To appreciate it even more, download the videos and watch on a big 65" TV screen: amazing experience and in the end, you get to meet Darwin. A huge thank you to all the instructors.
Excellent course. Excellent instructors, all. Now I think I'll back up and go read Darwin's Origin of the Species with a more educated eye.
A well paced course which helpfully breaks down the different stages highlighting characteristics and progression of both geological and biological periods in Earth's history.
