This was a fascinating course. I loved the video lectures and felt I learned a lot. I enjoyed the assignments as quizs. You didn't need a music background to complete the course although if you had, I suppose it would have been a richer experience. There was good interaction with one very dedicated TA in the forums, but little interaction with the prof. In fairness, this took place over the summer during holiday season. I highly recommend this course.
I have loved every minute of this course ... I didn't know a lot about poetry and nothing about contemporary & modern American poetry but that has not been an issue. Al Filreis is an amazing instructor - you will never encounter a more generous team than that of the ModPo course. In addition to the scheduled video lectures each week, there was always interaction on the forums, our facebook group and extra webcast scheduled each week. We were all given access to the incredible resources at the Kelly Writer's House. You can tell this team (Al & the TA's) are passionate and thrilled to lead this huge group of ModPo students. They have really figured out how to engage with such a large group. It has been an incredible experience. I've really grown to love poetry and see it now as an interest of mine. One to develop. I am so grateful for that.
