Very interesting stage of Chinese history is covered here. This Part fits well within the series and should ideally be watched in sequence with the other Parts of this series.

Fabulous, wonderful learning experience.  Never thought.... I'd be sorry to finish.  I want to review at a slower pace the entire course.  So I'm hoping the next section starts as late as possible.  I started late, and played catch up as fast as I could worrying it would be taken down before I finished.  Now I want to review. A not to be missed authentically engaging PROFESSOR  (and well dressed as well)

* My Prior Experience: I was continuing the ChinaX course. This was the fifth part. * Evaluation activities: There are lots of quizz-like questions during the weeks and participation in discussion forums also is required. At the last week, there is a Final Assessment. * Good points: \- The lessons are well organised, with lots of supporting material and interview with experts, to aid understanding. \- Professor Bol - responsible for Part 1 to 6 - exposes subjects very well and Professor Kirby gives goods contributions during classes and debates. \- Some discussions emerged in Office Hours are very fruitful, since the professor and some experienced students can deepen some contents and clarify some questions. \- The whole course is divided in 10 mini-courses, and each part will keep open until the end of the entire course. Thus, flexibility is surely one of the best points of this MOOC. * Bad points: \- The sound is not perfect, but ... * My Prior Experience: I was continuing the ChinaX course.

That is a great progress! =D \- The obligation of participating in discussions sometimes becomes tiring, especially if you are doing the course after it had finished. * Overall evaluation: The fifth mini-course presents the History of China between the Yuan and the Ming Dynasties. Until now, this was the part I enjoyed most. I really recommend this course to those who want to know something about East. In fact, it goes beyond China. It is really awesome! (Course taken in May 2014).
