Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The course is very interesting. Rasmussen is unique with an approach to independent studies and course curriculum that rely on research and interest. There is always a point of view that Rasmussen offers for those that have spent time in consideration of the subject. Astronomy at Rasmussen is no different. I enjoyed the interesting points of view, and unbiased inclusion of many different theories.
The beginning of creation of course, was the highlight of the course. The course covered many models that try to explain modern theories of the origin of the universe. There was one theory that I had never read before, The Nebular Theory. It is interesting to see that civilization is not giving up with their questions concerning the beginning. In time, the answers may be there.

Advice for students:
Information literacy is the most important tool for education, however I emphasize it for this course. There are many topics concerning physical reality, and the diversity of opinions concerning the same observations makes conclusive knowledge impossible. Therefore, instead of offending all the theories that exist in favor of one, Astronomy depends instead on information literacy. Decide for one's self on the truth. However, paying close attention, one can see content that only seemed like a step towards science. Likewise, one might find that there is more to say about some theories that scientists as authors left for others to say. Therefore, information literacy is the best advice I have for this course.
