イリノイ大学アーバナ・シャンペーン校(University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) による Planet Earth...and You! の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Earthquakes, volcanoes, mountain building, ice ages, landslides, floods, life evolution, plate motions—all of these phenomena have interacted over the vast expanses of deep time to sculpt the dynamic planet that we live on today. Planet Earth presents an overview of several aspects of our home, from a geological perspective. We begin with earthquakes—what they are, what causes them, what effects they have, and what we can do about them. We will emphasize that plate tectonics—the grand unifying theory of geology—explains how the map of our planet's surface has changed radically over geologic time, and why present-day geologic activity—including a variety of devastating natural disasters such as earthquakes—occur where they do. We consider volcanoes, types of eruptions, and typical rocks found there. Finally, we will delve into the processes that produce the energy and mineral resources that modern society depends on, to help understand the context of the environment and sustainability challenges that we will face in the future....



Excellent course. The content was well delivered. If you are not a geology student and don't intend to be one but wish to find out more about the planet you lived on, this is the course for you.


Best course I have taken out of all the courses. It is presented really well, easy to understand and there is a lot of thought put in the creation of the materials and assignments

While having some knowledge of geography is not a prerequisite in fulfilling this course, it definitely helps. Since I lack it, I have some difficulties in understanding certain concepts. All in all, the lecture videos and explanations are well done as it has allowed me to understand certain concepts. I love the discussion rubric because it allows for us to apply what we have learnt into the different scenarios, as well as guaranteeing interaction among students.

The course was great, except for the broken links and some out of date material. The core material was good and the lectures were excellent. The Google Earth labs need to be updated.

Very clear and easy to understand even if you're note native english speaker.

It would have been great to get the answers to the quizzes even in the free version.
