one of the best course to know everything about algae. I recommend all people who decided to work on algae pass this course. I learnt about different aspects of algae and seaweed. thanks Coursera.

Incredibly helpful to someone wanting to study ecological sciences at university! I highly recommend you complete the course as it doesn't take long. I very much enjoyed it. With love from the UK!

I liked this course a lot! It's very interesting, and as a biology major it has really made me interested in including algae in my career. I think ways the course could have been better is if the final test had different version to do if you failed the first one. I think that would be a better determinant of people's knowledge acquired from the course. On another note, I really appreciated the Learning Outcomes lists for each video. And I liked each of the presenters and their slides, but I did wish they could have pointed to things on the slides or could have circled or highlighted things as they talked about them (because it can be hard to keep track of what they are talking about in the complex diagrams). Thanks for making this course! I'll probably do the next one on Algae Biotech sometime.

I learned things that would not be possible without participating in this course. The least is how to keep the pool in my farm cleaner using some fish. Now I know what "vegetable oil" means, and what is the difference between vegetable oil and canola or corn or other plant based oils. I rate the course 4, and not 5, because not every presentation were as energetic and encouraging as the one with professor Burkart. There are others who are very prominent scientists, but not good teachers, giving dole and monotone lectures. As an example, professor Levine, or professor Hazlebeck. To sum up, the course is good planed, and presented nicely. I recommend it to any one who wants to learn about algae.

El curso me ha encantado. Toca bastantes puntos de las microalgas para dar ideas generales y explica bastante bien los detalles básicos sobre las algas, sus características y su interés.
Quizás me hubiese gustado que en el curso hubiese indagado más sobre algunas especies de algas concretas, a modo de ejemplos, y hay veces en las que los ponentes hacen referencia a cosas que supuestamente han dicho otros ponentes anteriores y en realidad no han mencionado. No obstante, en general el curso está bastante bien y es muy completo.

I found the course very interesting with much information I had never been acquainted with in the past or even knew of its existence. I have a comment, though, about the structure. Many of the slides had information /data that I assume were copied as pdf's or other photos. The information within those was too small or too low resolution to read even with full screen. And in some cases the data on the screen was obstructed by the lecturer standing in front of the posted data.

Great introduction to algae and their uses. Focus is heavily on microalgae and producing algae for use as an oil, bio-fuel and in bio-products but also gives a good overview of macroalgae (seaweed) and how they grow and develop too. Would recommend to anyone with an interest in either microalgae as a bio-product and macroalgae as an aquaculture product for food and other appplications.

The content at large excellent but but most of the diagrams were not in focus therefore justimpossible to read/follow/understand ( had to use other sources ) The textmass connected could just have some corresponding time notes..thus easier to follow.. As such quite a few questions came to be exlpained ..in good way Many many thanks to you all

I was taking this course because I want to learn more about macroalgae cultivation. So it was not what I expected. But the course talk more about microalgae cultivation (industry), which at some point is inaccessible to more traditional community who can't afford high capital to start with.
But overall, it was a good introduction course.

A very interesting course that covers all algae basics, from their structure to their ecology and biotechnology. The lecturers were experts in the field and gave a lot of data and sources to support their claims, which really helped in understanding. Overall a really good course for anyone looking to know more about algae.

Good introduction, really gets you interested for more! Could use better made presentations, visually. Not necessarily prettier, but clearer in the sense of not having a bunch of text while someone is talking, perhaps showing one part at the time, etc. But I understand it's still just introductory!

Very interesting and clear. I was more interested by the beginning of the course about algae biology than the biomanufacturing and industrial uses aspects however the teachers made it really interesting too and I got caught up and learned a lot more. I very much recommend this course !

The course is rather well done and teaches a lot. It's a big eye opener on algae but on plants as well. The only part I didn't like at all was the bio-manufacturing one which felt like a marketing presentation more than explaining actual processes (including even some FUDs).

Excelente material, tal y como lo dice, es material introductorio, por lo que si alguno desea venir en busca de información profunda, no la encontrará aquí. Un poco de todo y sobre todo, aplicación de la información. Excelentes explicaciones y planteamiento.

I enjoyed the course, i liked the quality of the questions and the power point presentations used.
What I didn't really like was that every lecture was given by a different proffesor... anyway, I had a good experience and learned many new things :)

Great Introductory course! However, I would have liked to better understand the challenges in bringing algae derived biofuels to the market, and more details about other applications of algae, such as wastewater treatment, Hydrogen production etc.

This was really a great in-depth introduction to algae! The modules were very well structured and assignments tested the understanding of important concepts. Also very manageable for those people working full-time jobs! Really enjoyed it!

exceptional introduction I must say. I am an BS Aquaculture from URI and an oyster hatchery manager and was more than satisfied with the curriculum and the expertise of the speakers. I would greatly encourage a follow-up course.

I just finished my first year of undergraduate biology, so this course was a great way to recap key biological concepts. But unlike university, this course taught me the concepts in a real-world applied context which was great!

Excellent overview. Needs some editing for minor errors. Some questions need to be redesigned since many forms of answers could be correct, e.g. energy source for photosynthesis could be light, sunlight, photons, etc.

Excellent course but one suggestion if possible to consider.
It could be quite beneficial to add animations to aid the receiver to understand and visualize the ideas being discussed.

The course provided my first babysteps into the world of kelps/seaweed & was very interesting. However I would have loved to see a more clear split between micro & macroalgae.
