For a very complex subject, this was a thoroughly enjoyable and easily understandable course. I appreciate the easy to follow commentary plus the more detailed class notes for reference and followup. Excellent course!

A really helpful course to get to know the world of birds, and it helps to get clear the classification and evolution path of theropods. The anatomy of birds is recommended as the fundamental knowledge to study before this subject.

Another brilliant course from the University of Alberta. Definitely recommend this one. The course material and presentation of the video content by Scott is awesome.

In this moment I´ve just finished Week 2 on this course and it´s been just amazing. Clear and super interesting explanations are given from both teachers. And the interactive and written material helps a lot to understand better the lessons.

I highly recommend this course!
