This was one of the best MOOCs I've experienced. The instructor was Belgian if I recall, but his English was superb. Course support was also excellent. The course serves as a comprehensive constitutional overview of EU law, and uses actual cases, directives etc. Testing is done much like law school; rather than regurgitation students are asked to apply their knowledge to hypothetical fact patterns.

An accessible introduction to the basic legal framework of the EU. Very clearly explained and easy to absorb, but there are quite a number of details and many nuances to keep in mind. Consider quiz questions carefully before answering and you'll be fine. Well worth the effort!

Really wanted to enjoy the course and learn about the subject matter. Unfortunately, the course wasn't a true introduction as I apparantly needed. The lectures covered vast and detailed topics quickly and all at once; many of the terms and concepts were briefly mentioned and I wasn't able to apply when they were later referenced. As a suggestion, I would recommend breaking some of the early lectures down by topic and going over them more extensively, with examples. Maybe more charts, summaries or real-world application would have helped. Found it hard to follow and wound up very lost.
