Quarter Taken: Fall 2018 Submitted Jan. 10, 2019 Grade Received: A

Dr. Crosbie-Watson is an incredible lecturer- very clear and engaging. However, because of the way this course was designed with pre recorded lectures and a different person as the coordinator, she was not available for questions or discussions. The only form of discussion about topics learned in class were with TAs (grad students). I wished we had a portion of the class where we could discuss material/ask questions on a weekly basis with someone more well versed in the material. Very interesting material, but very challenging and heavy workload.

It's a great class especially if you have an interest in medicine as the course provides you with insight into how to diagnose DMD and clinical research treatments that have been adopted to test the disease. However, this class is a lot of work even for a 5 unit online class. The projects, homeworks, papers, nothing is graded leniently making it almost impossible to enjoy the course material.

The material is extremely cool and I really appreciated the multi-disciplinary approach of the course. However, the the work load is insane. The amount of busy work really takes away from enjoying the course and material as well as discourages regular studying because I would spend time doing homework instead of going over the material. My other courses were really hard too, so it was a struggle to remain efficient and learn at the same time. You can get an A if you work hard and pay attention to the lecture videos, but this is definitely not an easy A. Given that, I do feel accomplished completing the course and feel like I gained a lot of knowledge.

Cool class, but extremely dense with a lot of busy work. Take it if you wanna learn about Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, but otherwise can be a total pain.
