The very engaging lectures and on screen persona by the Professor ensured that working on the course didn't feel a lonely experience. The depth of insight into a genre of literature was truly enriching. Peer interaction was intensive and useful. On my session there was no direct engagement by course staff on the forums, nonetheless the course had so many motivated and some very competent students that with the excellent course material, a good educational experience was achieved. As with any MOOC, meeting peers online can be a varied experience so ensure to read the forum guidelines, follow the good and useful, and ignore the occasional impoliteness. Allow enough time for reading especially if English is a second language, preferably read the books ahead of the course and re-read parts for the course. Great course! Thanks Professor and team!
The course professor's enthusiasm emits from the screen making this online course educational and entertaining. The session had significant staff forum presence, however the quality materials stand adequately autonomous. Students submitted fantastic work in peer reviews and forums but even novices clearly learned, engaged and had fun. Coincidently, last evening I visited the Graduate Institute Library in Geneva Switzerland and a box full of comic books was on the floor. No further need for condescending attitude or embarrassment, equipped with an academic spin on comics from this course, I sat down, read them, and enjoyed.
