    The Emergence of Life is an evolutionary biology course offered through the Coursera MOOC platform from the University of Illinois. The course first launched in July 2014 to over 21,000 participants from around the world. This ambitious course delves into the ground-breaking research of Dr. Carl Woese to frame our understanding of life on our planet, and features interviews with prominent evolutionary biologists from sites around the world. The scope and scale of this course was unparalleled in many ways. It required extensive research, data management, and scientific expertise in many fields. Since this course featured cutting-edge research, we often had to develop and produce original content to illustrate evolutionary concepts that have never been documented before. For more information, and to sign up- go to- https://www.coursera.org/course/emergenceoflife COLLABORATORS: The Emergence of Life was developed in collaboration with Dr. Bruce W. Fouke, the Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology, and NASA’s Astrobiology Institute for Universal Biology. _________________ Colleen Cook- Producer, Director, Videographer, & Lead Editor • Overseeing the development of 75 original, educational videos on everything from evolutionary theory and dinosaur hip structures to astrobiology and archaea. • Pedagogical design for video elements, script coordination, on-camera lectures and prominent guest interviews. • Lead Editor and post-production oversight of editing, graphic design elements, original scientific illustrations, advanced visualizations, sound editing and design, research/citations, and accessibility features. • Field recording & logistics on location in Svalbard (hazardous arctic conditions), Curaçao (underwater videography), Florida (volatile reptiles/wildlife), and Yellowstone National Park (extreme temperatures). • Studio production and video/sound recording in CITL-ATLAS Production Studios.
