I was 100% impressed with this, my first ever online course. The lectures were concise and easily understood. The questions & discussions were challenging and not misleading or about petty details. The instructors obviously know their stuff and did an outstanding job. The discussions and Office Hours added depth and insight into the course material. Kudos also to edX which not only hosted the course but also provided me with the financial Aid that I needed to participate in it. Every aspect of my experience was first rate!

I really enjoyed this Part. There is so much I have learned about Chinese history that was never taught in Western schools. This Part covers a very interesting period of time and a key part of the evolution of China. I look forward to Part 7.

Continuation of the China X series from Harvard. Interesting material presented well. Many facts, graphs, charts, photos, etc. to help the student learn. Once you take one part of the China X series, you are hooked for all of them!

A whole not so new world in front of our web eyes. So far for us in the west so close to the globalised current era .A great civilization of the past a giand of the moment .If China is the future no one could understand her without the past. Pioneer professors Bol and Kirby accompanied by the very energetic ChinaX team unlock the secrets of China with genuine spirit of teaching transmitting dangerous waves of enthusiasm to the students.

I love this course! It´s a new way in the in the concept of e-learning and a powerful tool in our comprenhension of China, this great and enigmatic nation which ruled a big part of Asia, and perhaps, in a not to long time, the world. Thank you, professors for your quality and good will. Your classes are very didactid and your class material is excellent! I´m having e - courses in other American and non American Universities, but yours is better! I´m not a history expert, only an interested person in our past and societies, but I can recognize excellence, and you are. I have no dislake about the course, I´m happy learning each day a lot of more. I don´t know if I´m going to be succesfull (earn 75%), but it´s a grat experience. It´s a g pleasure for me discover what Harvard is! Sorry for my spanglish. I try and I´ll try to do my best!

I love the China X courses. They are teaching what China is, how it came to be what it is now, and also makes me understand other countries, realities and how they evolved into what they are now. The material is interesting and easy to understand (even for people who are not English native speakers). I can only thank you for the opportunity.

I started with the first China X class, so I've already taken five of these. I just love them. We are going really slow so we have time to learn a lot along the way--not just the what but the how and why about a lot of things:politics, philosophy, literature, art, customs. We have a new professor this time, He is an authority on the Manchu and the Qing Dynasty and is following the same format. The first week was well prepared and well presented just like the previous courses.
