Very interesting and specially the anchors of this course are very enthusiastic and encouraging throughout the course so my focus is maintain for bugs and surly I will search more on insects further.
An absolutely fantastic course with logically set-out modules and enthusiastic, inspiring and engaging presenters. Very useful for anyone involved in Science outreach and/or widening participation.

Closed captioning was very helpful. Thank you. However, please consider having longer sentences in cc ( slightly smaller font) so that if I missed a word it wouldn't disappear so quickly.
The GLOSSARY was amazingly helpful. Wow. Thank you.! BRILLIANT!
Interviews were AWESOME and lent variety and interest to 'flesh-out' the course.
THEORIES without EXAMPLES were difficult to remember. For instance, Hector Caracamo gave many excellent theories that were hard to remember because there were no concrete examples provided.
Somewhere on the screen you should keep your names, the presenters, so that we can be reminded of who you are while you are presenting. We want to remember your names.
A couple of photo mistakes - when you were referring to light pollution affecting moths the picture is of a butterfly. And, a beautiful red butterfly pictured on a large green leaf - has a pin in it. Gotcha!
The reference to the Chipewayan tribe is a no-no. They prefer to be known as Dene. (Chipewayan is how the Cree refer to them, and is NOT complimentary)
Peter Heule is SUPERB in his interviews, convincing me to take my granddaughters to his museum.

i thoroughly enjoyed this course. Very well done!!! I can see from the acknowledgements that many people were involved. Great content. I learned much even though I am a Board Certified Entomologist. in Urban Entomology. it is a vast subject of course.
i can only suggest for improvement that the clothing worn by one of the presenters seemed inappropriate to me. A bit distracting. Perhaps the producers should look at some standards of attire. It's not that there is an expectation of formal dress but perhaps a bit of reflection on attire could help.
one has to imagine the kind of values put on presentation in other educational programs.
Notwithstanding, this was a truly excellent course. Thank you very much. Sam

I love bugs and this course only solidified that! It's nice to be around other people who have the same interest and passion for these alien-like creatures all around us. My only complaint is that it is difficult if not impossible to contact anyone for questions. There is a discussion board but people have to decide to answer your questions... you can see how many people view your question and decide not to answer. Thank you for this adventure <3

I'm in grade 7 and I followed along the course, I hit some bumps and at some points I was kind of boring, but I am very happy that I did the course. I've learned so much and by far my favorite module has to be about the bees! So the next time I dissect a beetle I'm sure to know what's inside!

This course was very well composed. Each lecturer was very concise and well-spoken. I thoroughly enjoyed the lectures, the interviews and the visual materials. I would recommend this course to others.

Each teaching video should be maximum up to 10 minutes to keep the focus of the students. This is according to the instructional design principles.
Videos that last to long are tiresome

This was a great start to learning about insects. I got given a basic overview of all topics. Maybe you can have a part 2 on insect identification and research.

I think the try it yourself sections were pretty interesting, however content felt to be really memory based which feells very overwhelming
par Joy S•
Excellent class full of great information. Very comprehensive. Would give 5 stars, but the whole bug thing is still kind of creepy.
par Konstantin B•
Good overall aspects of insects but some of the information is difficult to understand

The ILO for IPM was not fully playable. However, overall this a good course.
Very informative, although boring at times.

Cancelled course due to low quality audio. Even at 100% speakers audio was often intelligible.
