I liked this one. Not too long and the quiz was relative to the material.

The navigation within the lesson was not as obvious as other lessons

Was hard to pay attention to the material - seemed to jump from one place to another, and the narration was very monotonous, made it hard to pay attention. Did learn some new things

1. Course is 11 years old. Things have changed, and the course should be updated.2. Course title isn't really appropriate for the course. The course is more about the environmental impacts (air, water, soil, aquifer.....) due to industrialization and modernization of our society.3. Presentation is more than a bit one sided when discussing, for example, coal power. I'm more of a nuclear power supporter, but many strides have been made with providing cleaner and more efficient power from coal. In one place in the presentation, the course mentions that impacts are important, but also are the actions to correct impact. Adding a module on what's been accomplished will provide a more objective presentation, and could have a motivational effect on people by letting them realize that "we've come this far" so, "let's continue". 4. The USA has done A LOT to lessen our impact to the environment. Many other countries need to engage; China and India come to mind. I understand 30% of the pollution in so. California comes from China. :(5. The course presents a lot of good info. So although it is a bit biased, and sorely needs updating, I can't say I wouldn't recommend it at all. I might recommend it to someone with no background in NEPA or environmental impacts, or someone who is oblivious to the environmental impacts of our society. I probably would give the course 2.5 stars if I could.

I found this to be a useful education. My previous work experience exposed me to much of the water related information. The module that included the air and climate components helped round out environmental knowledge for me.

Quiz did not seem to reflect items covered in the lesson. The answer choices did not match the study material.
