A truly wonderful course taught by a highly engaging teacher. One of my favorite MOOCs. A brilliantly taught course on the context and background that informed Shakespeare's works. EDIT:Though one of the five best MOOCs I have taken, I can no longer recommend FutureLearn courses due to their forum moderators..

A very one-sided take on the region that provides no insight. The religiosity and politics of the region are ridiculed. There is no viewpoint diversity and dissent is not allowed by FutureLearn forum moderators. The absolute worst FutureLearn MOOC among the 15 I have completed.

For a non-science person, this was a great class. Those who are more scientifically oriented will probably find it too basic. However, for bringing science to a larger mass audience, it's hard to beat Professor Bloomfield's exuberance..

More about the professor's leftist world view than about sports. Very disappointing. The worst coursera offering I have experienced.

Very well taught course. I agree with the points made in the previous reviews, and I would add that my only complaint is the brevity of the course.

A brilliantly taught class. My favorite coursera class. I enjoyed Zelikow's approach to history which emphasized how people actively respond to situations and are not mere captives of inevitable social forces. It's a delightfully old fashioned approach, and to me that's a feature rather than a bug.

This was a terrific class. Green's calm lecturing created a pleasant learning environment for thoughtful contemplation of the various philosophies studied in the class. The quizzes were relatively easy, but that was fine with me. The value here was in the lectures and readings.
