I,Adike Shambhuprasad learnt a lot in thiscoursera course. From formation of Universe,Solar system to origin of life and extinction of many species is very interesting.Thanks to all faculty members.
The course help me discover answers to so many questions I had in mind and discover so many more. It made me realize how little I know about life itself and how precious life on earth is.

Overall, great overview of Earth's history! Found the end pretty fry when looking at biodiversity. Would have preferred to look at biodiversity of other species besides birds.

Great course with so much information. The instructors explain the themes very well, perhaps it needs a laser so signal important points in each slide that is been presented.
Excellent course on this topic. I have really enjoyed the process of learning and the knowledge I gathered during the process. More importantly, it has broadened my thinking.

Excellent and informative course - a great deal of factual information packed in. Very well presented by a range of experts in different fields.
A very interesting course with a broad spectrum.
Some of the professors might work a little bit on the pronunciation of English!

Found it very interesting and informative.

It's a marvelous course. But it has one problem, the pronunciation of instructors are much herder to understand.

Assessment for the last half of the course was on stupid dates and small, boring, unimportant details.
Very interesting covering different disciplines. I enjoyed the Paleontologic part, well documented.

The scope of this course is extremely ambitious and much of it is very interesting. Unfortunately it is also very technical and some lecturers found it hard to make the technicalities accessible to a layperson such as myself. I did finish it, however and am certainly better informed about our origins than I was before I started.

A lot of info cramped in long videos makes it confusing sometimes

Sorry, the guy in the first video doesn't blink, which is very weird. The second video was so incredibly dry and boring that I completely lost interest. I know this could be a fascinating course with the proper videos and visuals to help people understand it.
