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.

Thanks for helping me understand the Special Theory of Relativity, covered a lot of ground but repeated it so it really could sink in. Like your style and want to thank you for your assistance. Thanks

Love the course as its a interesting insight into the world of physics.
What i dont think was effective was the multiple choice quizzes as you could just glide through them without applying the knowledge you learned in any new way.

Very in Depth for if it is your first time learning. If you have already read about General and Special Relativity it doesn't tell you very much more than what you already know. Either way it is a great course.

I disliked really slow speed of formulas derivation, simple operations like cancelling out terms are done in multiple steps. Like for children that only starting study mathematics. Otherwise great course!

Than You so much this course has really influenced my life at such great heights
It has also made me give more recognition to our Bible Family for all their great accomplishments.

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!!!!

The course was really good. But the discussion forum was not pleasant. Due to the unruly behaviour of this person named Thomas Lahn

Excellent Prof , Excellent Resources. My only drawback is that prof is a bit excessive repetitive, rest everything is fine.

Well taught and structured course, gives a more quantitative understanding of some of the outcomes.

Good course for introduction to special relativity. I expected more related to E=mc^2 derivation.

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.

Rather easy questions and not many difficult ones even in the optional exercises.

The professor is so slow I have to have him at 1.5x speed when listening to his lecture and am still falling asleep. I am very interested Special Theory of RElativity but I ll just get a book. Will be faster.
