Thank you for this excellent course! I really enjoyed the short videos, the concise notes, and quick quizzes (both at the end of each lesson, as well as the main point quizzes throughout the videos).

Even as a dinosaur nerd, I still learned a lot. Instructional videos with embedded quizzes were very well constructed. I'm just a bit bummed that I couldn't access the fossil viewer for some reason.

Good course for a very broad and shallow introduction to the group Dinosauria and the changes of Earth during the time of the dinosaurs.

The lecture handouts really need to be proof-read to eliminate typos, grammatical errors, inconsistent use of American and British English, inconsistent information, and inaccurate information (predentary bone in upper jaw...). There are also instances where something could be better explained/integrated with the course, for example in Lesson 3 when Betsy says: "this is a cross-section of a hadrosaur jaw" but doesn't point out any features on it so it is not at all informative.

The functionality of the course on Chrome is very problematic. For the questions asked during the lecture videos, the answer window pops up at most 1 second after the question diagram is finished being drawn. Sometimes this means you have about 0.5 second to memorize the diagram as the answer choices are simply letters (A, B, etc.). Other times, the answers and their corresponding buttons to click are separated vertically by a lot of space. The fossil viewer does not work at all in Chrome which is a real disappointment.

Assuming the "F15" in the lecture handout filenames indicates that they were created in fall of 2015, and many other students have pointed out the above issues, I find it difficult to believe that previous students have not pointed out the same issues. I am not sure if there is any "upkeep" being done to this course since its creation. I would have given the course five stars if these issues had been corrected.

This course was well constructed with the learning objectives supported by the videos. Unfortunately, my computer wouldn't allow me to view the fossil cabinet so I missed out on that aspect of the course. I plan to go back and read some of the supplemental material cited in the Objectives section. I have to date viewed any of that material. Some of the material, for example the tests at the end of the units, were pretty simplistic--not that I object to that. What was difficult to assimilate were the sections where great clumps of information were spit out quickly. It was impossible to follow the segment, for example, on the pseudosuchians and dinosauromorphs as it went so quickly. Another segment that was difficult to follow concerned Larasia and Gondwana and the various dinos existing there. I was lost at marginocephalian, ornithomimid, semilunite carpel, therizinosaur all in the space of a minute. Nevertheless, I can always go back and rewatch segments. Everything was clear, organized, and well presented. Loved the chart of the time periods. Obviously, I have much more to learn.
