I really liked this course, the professor was engaging, clear, and informative, and did a great job explaining and simplifying the more complex biology topics so that it was digestible for beginners.
Love the clarity of the instructors deliver which is supported by great explanations and most importantly visual aids & demonstrations. Ps... Especially loved the bloopers at the end. Nice treat! :)

The course is brilliant, really insightful and enjoyable. Daniel Chamovitz is a very good teacher. Only issue that can be solved very easily is to adjust the rubrics of the final quiz to be clear if the questions allow one or more correct answers, as this doesn't follow a pattern and confuses while taking the test. I almost gave up to try it again after filed the first time (and ultimately purchase the certificate) because I was sure I opted for right answered many times but got a negative feedback until I realised what was going on.

I enjoyed the class. The teacher was great. The readings took many hours due to being a beginning Botany student. I had to study the syllabus a lot for basics. The quizes could be more straight forward if each question had only one answer. I especially liked watching the time laps plants growing. The text was good and the lectures were often entertaining. He had some good questions.
Thanks for the free class. now I need to take a class in horticulture so I can improve my skills in the garden.

A good overview of concepts and some of the related research. Be aware, however, that the lecturer tends to jump around topics without ever resolving them and that some of the exam questions aren't clear, are designed to trick you, and/or have typos. Overall, a good learning experience for a beginner looking to better understand plant biology.

Lots of great information - Thank you! It would have been helpful if some key concepts had been repeated/emphasized more throughout the course. Maybe include a unit summary or study guide before taking each quiz. And definitely include a course review before the final quiz! Thanks for a great course. I'm going on to take Part 2.

Fascinating information, very interesting lectures. But the tests weren't designed very well - more likely to trip people up than provide a real review of the information. It would have been helpful if we were informed of how many of the possible answers were correct for each question.
This is a very good opportunity to learn plant. I once hated this lesson in school. Because the way my teacher taught was so boring, but this course is completely different, it is so interesting. The important thing is that it save a lot of time the lesson was short but got the point.

Very interesting course, although some of the concepts were beyond me and I couldn't get to grips with them! Very pleased to have passed though, so perseverance paid off. Never take plants for granted, they're amazing!

I highly commend the explanation of multiple core principles in cell biology, experiment design, and history while covering the topic. The pace suited me well.

Professor Daniel Chamovitz was wonderful and very interesting. But it was difficult for me as I have very little preliminary information on plants and biology
by Marjet B•
Very educational! Some conclusions of some experiments I could recollect as detailed as was necessary for the final test. Learned a lot!! Thanks!

nicely covers the content for even a new learner its a good source of knowledge. i am impressed by the course content and teacher
by Thembelihle M•
Great course content, very relevant. I learned a lot about plants behavior concerning seasons, environment, weather patterns.
It is a very interesting seminar, Teacher has very good communication skills. But the final exam was very difficult!

It is a good course and very developed. It woud be good to have more Laboratory expirements in the course.

This is a very interesting course. Very simply and nicely explained. Only Final quiz has some loopholes.

The two take aways: the growing food insecurity and the negative impact of humanity on the environment.

I liked the lectures very much. However, I think the quiz design needs more attention.

It was a very interesting course and has made me look at plants with a different lens.

Very compelling and easy to follow (this coming from a Liberal Arts major).
