One final quiz at the end of course, which is a compilation of the in- lecture quiz questions. In other words, it didn't feel up to the difficulty of an actual university film course. No writing, essays, etc. Nonetheless, I still learned many things. Learned about the transitions from silent to sound films, B&W; to color, and the different color technologies of the 30s-50s. And learned about how all of these technologies were used as creative tools by the filmmakers. You'll watch a variety of films in this course. The course load is 5-6 hours a week, but that's with watching two movies and two half-hour lectures...plus any rewatching/extra study you may do. So it's really only fun study, at least it was for me.

Learned WAY more than expected from this course, Wesleyan's management of the MOOC was impeccable and Scott Higgins was a great lecturer: knowledgeable and generous-spirited.
