Almost anyone can learn about the special theory of relativity from these lectures. I actually can't believe that I studied from a professor who teaches in the USA and in so simple way. I am grateful.
This course is very comprehensive and well prepared material for understanding the Special Theory of Relativity. Larry (the instructor) is very expert and has broad knowledge in explaining the course.

I loved the course. I gained a lot from this. Want to learn more mathematics and wish could learn General theory from the same team. Thank you soo much. Great work.

Quite hard work - the topic is not intuitive, and the questions teem with the possibility of going wrong - badly wrong.
Effort is required, and is paid-back.

It's a good course to start understanding Relativistic Physics. Nothing rigorous though.
The lectures are amazingly easy to understand. Overall liked it.

I think a chapter on momentum and energy conservation would be interesting, I liked the examples and the treatment of the paradoxes, very good course.

a very thorough introduction to special relativity, as a layman, I have gained immense insight & basic understanding. Thanks prof Lagerstrom!!!!
par Krish R•
The course was really good. But the discussion forum was not pleasant. Due to the unruly behaviour of this person named Thomas Lahn
par Gary S•
Mr Lagerstrom has explained a difficult topic in a very understandable way. He is a true teacher, not just a lecturer. Thank you.
par Christophe N•
Nice course with very clear explanations! Too bad that I had to wait for week 4 to really start the core of special relativity
par Vertika S•
Excellent Prof , Excellent Resources. My only drawback is that prof is a bit excessive repetitive, rest everything is fine.

A very interesting course simplified to an under graduate level. it helps in understanding relativity in perspective.
par Lee H•
Well taught and structured course, gives a more quantitative understanding of some of the outcomes.
par Kiran K•
Good course for introduction to special relativity. I expected more related to E=mc^2 derivation.
par Víctor P V•
This course is superb, covers easyly all the aspects of the special theory of relativity
par Nicholas C•
A leisurely and enjoyable introduction to the Special Theory.
par Callum B•
Really good to get a grasp of what relativity is all about
par Dave W•
Too much work in weeks 4 and 5. Explanations very clear.
par Maartijn S•
Really great course, the teaching was excellent and fun.
par Shayar S•
Really interesting topic but can get a little boring
par Luis A B M L•
A bit long, too much time to cover easy themes...
par Yasoda R•
Nicely presented, but pace was very slow.
par Rajendraprasadbabu M•
a little bit more advanced required.

This course is just okay. The professor seemed nice and explained the concepts well. However it takes a painstaking long hours just to proceed to the next material(if you aren’t skipping stuff) as he just keeps over-explaining. The problems are far too easy , if you want to do relativity from a quantitative standpoint. Also,my biggest complaint is the introduction, which lasts for about 3 hours. And it takes around middle of the 2nd week to get started. I get it, make haste slow, but not to a crawl.
