Good and very educative.

Course is great-but could not get exam score(taken twice)or certificate

Excellent; with no wasted space. Basic but useful.

Good visualization of geodetic and geocentric latitudes and good examples of magnitudes of the various effects on gravity.

A good informative lesson to start with. The visuals and attached exercises support the learning of various concepts. The completion time may be a bit too optimistic and is only for perhaps grasping. Consider at least 2 or 3X more time for going thoroughly over the lesson. Furthermore, please notice that notation of geodetic latitude is 'lambda' instead of 'phi'. In many references, lambda denotes the longitude.

Esta leccion es muy importante, es importante sber como funciona el campo gravitatorio terrestre y como se elaboran los mapas, para no equivocarse a la hora de entender un mapa y porque se eliguen unos elipsoides u otros dependiendo de la zona geografica, o como nos afecta la subida del nivel amrinoo, o que cambios importantes se estan produciendo en las masas de hielo o en las corrientes marinas, que nos puedan indicar cambios de ciclos, pro ejemplo el niño, o cambios en el nivel marino

A great way to do a quick brush-up on fundamental physical principles governing gravity on Earth.

This was a very informative learning experience and I am going to recommend it to my colleagues.

A poll such as this one should not be called a survey. JAC

Thanks

Great course.

This was great - simple but very effective

Test questions somewhat vague/confusing due to lack of information in presentation. This led to guessing due to lack of provided content in body of question itself.

I really enjoyed the subject, having no knowledge of geodesy. It was a fascinating lesson and advanced my understanding quite a bit.
terevera 2017-03-29 14:26:08

The topic was explained in a readily and clear way. I enjoyed the exercises illustrating concepts.

I did not take the lesson, only the pre-test. I answered the above based on the pretest, and how well it worked, and informed, and on the excellent, and generous, products from MetEd. I respond to let you know of the error. I got up in the middle of the night to cool a bag of ice for my back. I left the class because it was cool. Thanks for your help in educating me and your wonderful work.

A very interesting primer on Geodesy.
Uchenna Victor 2017-03-29 09:12:59

The content is awesome and helps to better understanding of Gravity.

A straight forward explanation of the science with relevant questions. A summary which grouping the different effects on gravity (which are discussed) with their relative magnitudes would be useful.
