I’ve finished my second Coursera course! Dino 101 was offered by the University of Alberta, which I attended for my first year of university. Dr. Philip Currie is one of the instructors, and he is one of the top dinosaur palaeontologists in the world.
This course doesn’t actually end for another two weeks, but I completed it ahead of time, as we’re allowed to go at our own pace. I found this course quite informative, even though it was an introductory course to palaeontology. I knew a lot of what was taught, but I did find out plenty of new things, too.
I sometimes wonder what it would’ve been like to study palaeontology at university instead of physics and astronomy. I nearly did. I found my geology courses at the U of A fascinating. Makes me miss university.
Anyway, I have another course starting in a couple days on Future Learn, and that’s called Moons. I’m looking forward to it.
