The content highlights the change and improvements of LEED v4, and emphases the importance of measuring building performance. It could be better if the volume level is consistent when switching among different speakers.

Overall, this two part series is interesting and informative. There is a lot of information to cover and this course moves quickly. I enjoyed the material variety and the strides that have been taken to keep LEED relative in a now competitive market. Not only in U.S., but in a global perspective. The introduction of different experts and their input on the topic is refreshing and makes the course less mundane. The test for the first part of the series was not structured well in my opinion, but the second part was easy. However, it is more than just getting a passing grade here, I appreciate the explanation of the rating system and the improvements that it has made from the previous version.

It is encouraging to see that the LEED Rating System, in its V4 reconfiguration, is finally becoming more "organic" in its approach to rating building projects for sustainability. This is a far cry from LEED's original versions, which appeared to be created by non-building-designers, working in the dark, who knew little about how buildings and their sites function. LEED's rating designers are finally catching up to the way that many architects and engineers approached building and site design back in the 1970's and 1980's, when we older building designers were young apprentices and/or newly registered architects and engineers.
