Animal Behaviour and Welfare - The University of Edinburgh

5.0 22/03/2017
What I would highlight: I finished the Animal Behaviour and Welfare course with Coursera. The course design was very intuitive, easy to follow and take in. I was very much impressed with the materials provided, quizzes, samples and videos. There are "quizzes" after lectures, they reinforce knowledge and ask for most advanced concepts from the videos. I have used other learning platforms, and Coursera is by far the best one I found.

What I would highlight: My wife and I took two classes on Coursera together:Business Growth Strategy. We learned a lot. I am no longer totally lost when my colleagues talks about business strategies. I liked how easy it was to watch the lectures together. We could also compete to see who got the best grades on the quizzes and suchlike. The interface was fairly intuitive, especially if you've taken other online courses before or edited/used Wikipedia. All in all, it was a very positive, if challenging, experience and one that I would recommend to anyone looking to further their knowledge. (Also there are paid tracks if you want certification.)

What I would highlight: I loved the fact that it was taught by Yale Professor Paul Bloom, author of 'Just Babies'. There were occasionally other instructors/presenters, but he was the main one. He was so smart, so human, so engaging -- and he was the big attraction in my taking the course. I'm working at a doctoral level and this course was NOT dumbed down for being online and having no pre-requisites. It was pitched at a masters level, and for that reason, I could really sink my teeth into it. As well, it was breaking new ground in Psychology, and this made it thrilling. I also really appreciated that it had boundaries and approachable requirements. You didn't just audit this course. There were weekly exams (which had a deadline, and you lost marks for tardiness) and in order to get your certificate of completion you had do them and score reasonably well. Although at 55, I'm long past competing for grades... it really gave me focus, and ensured that I applied myself and learned the material. It also kept the 'players' off the board, and kept non-working grandstanders from taking up question time. I loved the live tutorials in which Prof Bloom would address questions. So that it didn't become a free-for-all, questions had to be submitted in writing in advance, and he would choose which ones to answer. In a more open way, there was a student discussion forum, which allowed me to connect with other students and air ideas, questions, musings, etc. It was one of the most fabulous courses I have ever taken, on- or off-line -- well organised, beautifully presented, cutting edge. I learned a great deal, enjoyable, reflectively, productively, from the comfort of my own home.
What could be improved: Actually, unusually for me, there was nothing I disliked -- nor was there anything I would change. I'm usually quite critical, and I have no criticisms of this course.
