Great course for the non-professional student- keeps the subject matter discussions light and contemporary. Especially loved the idea of ecological proxy, which I had never heard before!

Bravo! A fascinating course, thank you. Dr. Martin speaks clearly and informatively with humour and insight. So many interesting subjects covered under the umbrella of "extinctions".

I really liked this course.

I'm very disappointed that i could not submit the final paper and receive a grade because I did not pay for a certificate. If I did the work all the way through the course and took the time and effort to prepare the final assigment I should be allowed to submit it

Fantastic course. Informative, fun - made me wish the course was longer. I didn't love the peer-reviewed aspect of the assignment, but did enjoy getting to actually write an assignment instead of just doing quizzes. I selfishly hope the instructor will offer more courses on Coursera.

very informative and presented in an understandable manner. Professor used a lot of humor. Makes me want to use all the information in my own classes as teacher and have the students think about the future. Thank you for the wonderful lectures !!

To complete this course I am repeatedly coerced into purchasing the $49 Certificate of Achievement. I don't want or need this certificate. Consequently, even though having completed 91% of this course, I have decided to unenroll from it.

However, I thought the instructor, lectures, and course content were very good. I learned a lot. As such, I would recommend this course to anyone interested, with the caveat that they should beware, If they want to finish the course at 100% they will need to pony up $49 for the certificate even if they don't want or need it.

I jumped into this class with high hopes and expectations, watched (and rewatched) the video lectures (which I enjoyed), read all the corresponding articles (that were still available), and for what? Absolutely nothing. Nice job Coursera with the "upgrade to submit your quiz". As a teacher and parent my time is limited. I have now clearly invested my time in something that is ultimately nothing more than a bait and switch.
