Hands down the best MOOC I've ever taken. I came into it having done a major in classical studies, but I'd never approached it from an architectural angle before. As promised, I can now name all the parts of a roman temple and house even a year after I originally took the course. Excellent and I could listen to her talk forever.

Since taking Latin in high school, I have always loved all things Roman. Dr. Kleiner's course was not an exception. This 15 week course covers Roman architecture from Romulus' hut to Constantine's Arch. It follows how Roman architecture evolved as the Roman era progressed and Rome's influence circled the Mediterranean. Dr. Kleiner's lectures are filled with photos and diagrams giving many examples of what the Romans built and explaining the context of the structures. My only criticism is that our essay assignments were restricted to too few words. I highly recommend Roman Architecture for anyhow who has been to Rome and fallen in love with it, or anyone who has plans to go to Italy and Rome. Viewing Dr. Kleiner's videos will definitely help one appreciate the experience of visiting Roman sites in person. One does not have to wait for the next Coursera session. Dr. Kleiner's videos are available directly from Yale at: http://oyc.yale.... Since taking Latin in high school, I have always loved all things Roman. Dr. Kleiner's course was not an exception.
