The video game was such fun and efficient way to learn and stay engaged with the course. I am usually better at learning traditionally through a textbook, but I really loved this method and enjoyed this course.
The video game is an incredibly cool concept for an online class. Playing through the game was a great new way to experience learning and I feel like a lot more of the information stuck as opposed to sitting in a lecture.
Since it is a video game-based Astro course, the process of learning is really joyful while helpful at the same time.
I've always dreaded science courses and this class somehow made me learn without being bored.
It made me realize how much there is to the world around us aside from the stuff on the surface.
Going into the class, I did not expect to find anything particularly interesting. Coming out of it, I am fascinated by the things I learned and love discussing the mysteries of space with my friends.
I was never a kid who necessarily liked science or the stars but this class forced me to get out of my comfort zone.
Ill admit, I took this class because I heard it was an easy general education course, but I ended up really enjoying the class and will recommend it to anyone who needs a general education class.
I always thought astronomy and science were amazing, but it always blows my mind to learn about the scale of the universe. The game did an awesome job showcasing that because we got to put ourselves in a situation where we had to traverse it.
Great pacing in the game for the most part with a very interactive teaching style which allowed me to really learn the information provided.
I cannot give enough praise to the person that designed the Astro game. The game manages to find ways to have an interesting story and funny conversations all the while teaching us about astronomy.
The use of a video game helped me better comprehend the materials discussed in the course because I seemed to be more involved in the processes that were being explained.
Amazing experience! All education should be tackled in such an entertaining manner.
The style of teaching, an interactive game; I've taken a physics astronomy course at another institution and learned much more in this course due to the hands-on learning.
This class was actually extremely fun! The content was superb and the game was extremely intuitive. I really enjoyed the way the game progressed and felt the game content was all you needed.
This course made astronomy seem more accessible. I had always figured I would not understand it without intense effort due to the math involved. This course made the topic more interesting and approachable.
This class has further helped me understand just how vast and unpredictable the universe is. Being able to see how small the Earth was compared to other planets, then the sun, then a larger star, until the Earth was little more than a speck of dust and an atom compared to the Milky Way and the universe, respectively, is incredible.
I fell in love with this subject!
This has greatly opened my eyes about astronomy! We use the principles learned in astronomy much more than I could have imagined. I have a deeper appreciation for the universe!
I have always enjoyed space, but this class has provided me the concepts to really understand what is going on out there.
