Overview

Discover how you can play a part in the safe keeping of the future of our ocean

What lies in the half of our world covered by water more than two miles deep? How are our everyday lives connected to the ocean depths, and what challenges and opportunities does this previously hidden realm hold for our future?

Meet scientists exploring the ocean from the deepest undersea vents to the chilly waters of the Poles and find how what we now know about the ocean depths is as amazing as the unknown that remains. By taking this course, you will see how the deep ocean is no longer out of reach, and join a global debate about the future of our “blue planet”.

Everyone is welcome to take this course, and no previous knowledge is required or assumed.

Jaimee completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
The course was good in that it covered both the physical and biological aspects of the ocean. I found it very interesting at first, lost a bit of interest halfway and then picked it up again and continued to enjoy the rest of the course.

Sometimes the video lectures can be a bit long, but overall I enjoyed this course and feel that it expanded my knowledge on the topic.
