课程概述

In this course you will learn how evolution works. You will develop an understanding of evolutionary processes and their formative power. You will see how evolution has shaped biodiversity, and continuously influences our daily life. Evolution impacts human endeavors as varied as medicine, agriculture, psychology, economy, and culture. It is the major unifying principle for biology and a fundamental natural law. In five weeks we will make evolution accessible for you and help you to recognize evolutionary processes around you, in nature as well as in society. We make use of the unique collection of Naturalis, the natural history museum in Leiden, but also take you to the field. Using classical and up-to-date examples, we will show you how scientists address evolutionary questions. In the last module, we will have a look at the future. How will humans evolve? And how do we influence our own evolution and that of other organisms? This course is aimed at anybody with a drive to obtain a deeper, broader, and pragmatic understanding of evolution, including high-school students, BSc (undergraduate) biology students, MSc (graduate) students from other disciplines, medical professionals, conservation officers and educators in museums, libraries, national parks, and schools....

Good course. Fascinating facts and valuable observations. It makes you look onto the world with a wider view.

As a whole, this was a decent course; the supplemental materials and discussion forums were very helpful. However, I feel as if the information presented through the videos was very general and somewhat jumbled. Also, the gene coding exercises, while mildly interesting, were incredibly tedious to do. In short, work on adding more challenging/factual information to this course and refining your exercises from tedious to engaging, challenging, and/or interesting.

This course on evolution is not the best course on evolution I have taken. This is by some margin as well.

It's not that it's a really bad course, it's just it really not structured very well and does not flow. The course content is not explained in fine enough detail.

There are links to resources in the graded exams because, apparently, the place to learn information is not in the lectures but when taking the actual exams.

This course starts off interesting and then just gets absurd. A huge chunk of the genetic part has activities where you have to translate large genetic sequences by hand. If you don't have access to a printer, trying to break up genetic codes into 3-letter codons and translating them is an exercise in frustration. Plus the sequences are not even easily formatted for printing as they are all images so you can't even just copy them into an editor and break up the sequences.

This was only the second course I dropped on Cousera.

Very unclear in the way it was presented and the subject that are being talked about and not very interesting, partly because it was to easy for me.
