A good introduction with interesting examples.

a good introduction to urban green and blue infrastructure, including touching on the potential for highways to provide linear connection corridors. Some questions on the quiz were a little unclear in the wording where additional answers could have been considered correct, going by the information in the course, but were not considered the right answer.

Very informative

The videos could use a little more dynamic visuals, but otherwise a great series.
