This was an amazing course that I'm so glad I had the chance to take it. While I have to clarify that as I'm also studying at the university I had to stopped studying from this class after some days (when it started) because if you're going to take lots of annotations like I did by hand... is going to take some more time from you, which is why I decided to continue now on my vacations. If you already know about medieval times and medieval books you're still going to learn so much from this course just by the simple fact that we have the chance here in seeing them as if we are there in person looking up-close into the scrolls. I didn't know there are so many scrolls regarding the subject of law which is a really interesting big-fact to add to my annotations. Also, my favorite scrolls were the: compendium of the history of world, the universal chronicle of the world which has very beautiful drawings of the creation of the world and of the Genesis; also the Genealogy of the English Kings and one that it was discussed at the end of the program which is the asmat- just wow! such a beautiful scroll from the other side of the world! mixing the liturgy with magic incantations. I also find very interesting the information given in the section of: Italian Humanist Scripts in where you will learn about important figures that has to do with two of the most known and used scripts: the roman and italic script. Take this amazing class and write down everything you can because it has very valuable information to hold on. Thanks for giving this class for free and for a very long period. Had much fun.

I think the series is really good and the format of a series of mini-MOOC's is excellent along with the grading scheme. I have to say that I found the subject matter of this one less interesting than the other modules in this series. The instructor and display technology was great but the subject was a little dry.
