I enjoyed this course because the topics you learn about can be seen in everyday life. I took it DE and actually think I would have preferred to have done so even if given the option to have lecture. The project for this course is very cool - you get to go to a farm and take erosion measurements. In general I would suggest this to anyone who is even slightly interested in soil as it gives a whole different perspective on the topic.
