Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course because it is a great introduction course to biology. Annika Moe and Craig Packer are both amazing professors and really want you to succeed. The class itself is very easy as long as you watch the videos and finish the homework. It also gives you an amazing opportunity at the end to be part of a real world scientific study.
The highlight would have to be the Snapshot Serengeti project that is due at the end. It is a real world scientific project that allows students to learn about how to conduct a scientific study themselves. It was an amazing learning opportunity for me as I learned how to conduct a study myself. I also learned to pay closer attention to detail and not to make assumptions about a small piece of evidence.

Advice for students:
As for my advice on how to pass the class, do the homework. This means you have to dedicate at least an hour of your life every other day to watching and taking notes on the videos. Also remember to finish the quizzes for both lecture and lab.
