Anonymous completed this course.
Well presented, a high school level introduction to physics.
Only one try at quizzes (unusual for Coursera in my experience) meant the quizzes were not themselves learning experiences. To me that pressure to do it right the first time or lose forever made the course far less fun than most Coursera courses (and inconsistent with things learned in Gamification and other studies of motivation).

This was an excellent course. The demonstrations are very supportive of the content. This course isn't just another dry lecture. Dr. Bloomfield tries to add some humor into his videos to help with the understanding.
Absolutely one of the best coursers out there that teaches physics, you could be a university student or a high-schooler this course will work for you, it's both informative and entertaining.

The videos are great. Professor Louis hits hard on the concepts and will correct any misunderstandings you have about the basics of physics. The quizzes also ask helpful conceptual questions that help you weed out your understanding... Problem is you have to pay about $50 to have them graded! Way overpriced for someone casually learning physics. I fully understand paying for content, but the price point for the right to submit a computer graded multiple choice quiz is too high when you’re not interested in the cert: especially considering the amount of free competition elsewhere.

This course was one of the best courses I have ever done.
It related to the real world really well and made it easier to understand.
I looked forward to doing it every day.

This course had a great Professor. Light hearted, good energy, explains basic concepts well. Good diction, good examples, easy to follow.

All people done some work. But they don't know how this work. Work is done by force of gravity. The difference type of work done by different force of gravity

Nice course. It builds our capacity. We can learn more things about our interest. Easy way of learning. Sitting at a place and getting more knowledge. We can visualize the world and the learner at a place where we are sitting.
