WOW, I learned a lot form this and it was fairly educational but not overwhelming or difficult. This instructor really gets the points across without being to easy or hard. A very good class.
Celebrate your inner fish as you swim along with this awesome course charting our earliest ancestors. Very well constructed and delivered once again by the team at the University of Alberta.

This course was very informative and I enjoyed learning about the far past of vertebrates. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in paleontology and the history of life.

I haven't completed this course yet. Self pace and enjoying the lectures and videos. I've taken another Univ of Alberta course on Marine Reptiles which was great! I enjoy the Paleontol

Excellently done and narrated course. It makes me want to know more about paleontology and evolution. It is amazing what diversity of life this planet has produced.

I think this was a great module wich gave a good insight into the early vertebrate evolution. I willl definatly reccomend it to any who is interessted in this topic.

I thoroughly enjoyed the learning experience on this course. Notes and videos clear and concise, well put together, as expected from University of Alberta.
por Andre O•
Excellent course and good depth for beginners with some general biology background. Hope they continue it for entire evolution of vertebrates. Fantastic. A

This is perhaps the best and most enjoyable course that I have ever taken in Paleontology , I also learned a lot and will always treasure the experience !
por Tony W•
Everything you need!
This is the first of a great series - first-class lecture notes, well illustrated lectures and plenty of links to further study.
por Aastha M•
it is good for maths students who haven't studied biology and struggle with understanding palaeontology. vertebrates have been explained very well.
por Keenan R•
Excellent course, presentation, presenter, and material. Hope to see if other subjects of the Palaeozoic would be covered in future courses
por Arturo M•
An excellent presentation of paleontology by W. Scott Persons. A very amazing journey through the Devonian fishes that evolved to tetrapods.
por Ajit P•
A fairly accessible course to vertebrate evolution that thought me a lot about parts of my body and ancestry that I had taken for granted.
por Bryan K•
Very informative information on the vertebrae evolution. I feel so much better now knowing Im a living tetrapod and I came from a fish,
por Krajc, D•
Beautifully made. A new insight of nature. Awesome to see, listen, think about and recognize development of evolution in todays species.
por Andrés V X•
The course was concise because you learn the major charecteristics of the groups of fishes and how they evolved into another group.
por Diana V•
excelente! creo que nunca había comprendido realmente la evolución, fue una experiencia maravillosa, interactiva y bien explicada.
por Richard R•
Really informative, I recommend doing further reading
and writing things down/taking notes rather than just watching the videos.

- I learned about the evolution of fins with legs- The development of jaws-I knew the past of vertebratesThank you so much!!

This is great! I have learned so much. I can even use the concepts I learned to teach Comparative Anatomy. Thanks a lot.
