This was an incredibly detailed course that provided an in-depth and interesting view of ancient Egypt. I would highly recommend this as an essential course for those interested in Egypt's history.
I really enjoyed the history of Ancient Egypt. I have viewed the treasures of Tutankhamun twice. This class gave me a more in depth view of the culture and the art of Ancient Egypt. Thank you.

The material is interesting but in some parts a little dry. Lovely pictures which illustrate the monlogue but sometimes they changed a little to fast to really appreciate. In fact a suggestion to improve the student interest is to focus the image less on the static lecturer and more on the wonderful material, or perhaps vary the lecturers as is often done.

This is a really great course about one of the most interesting civilizations in human history. The topics covered are engaging and well-organized, and the attention to detail is admirable. I particularly enjoyed the opportunity to learn to write hieroglyphs, and unearth some ancient mysteries that tell a dramatic tale of ancient human life.

For all lovers of ancient Egypt, this course gives kind of an opening scene to culture, architecture, and other facets of the ancient kingdom. I look forward to continuing my pursuit of the subject and hopefully some day the online course will take on a virtual reality exposition into the museums and on site into the valley of the kings...

Very interesting course, but the flow of the lecture videos is seriously disrupted by the inclusion of the credits for the entire week's lecture videos, which sometimes takes up as much as half of the video time. This was fixed in the more recent course of this type, but the videos in this series could use a re-edit to match.

Thoroughly enjoyed this course as it gave me something interesting to learn since finishing university.
I would suggest making the lectures a little more exciting as something they can seem very monotone.
I really enjoyed the hieroglyphs and was impressed with Dr Silverman's skills of writing backwards!

Nice class, I particularly enjoyed the part 5 and 6. The part about the hieroglyphes could have been very interesting also, but you should try to "bring (more) life" (di-'nx) to these videos. But any wayn thank you for your workd, it was nice to study from this mooc.

Very clear and straighforward course. The visual illustrations are excellent. I would have liked to learn more about the tools and techniques of the Egyptian craftsmen and architects. However all in all I found it a very satisfying introduction.

Great content, pictures as well as informations, but somewhat unclear division of videos in parts and very long and I think redundant of final titles in videos (I guess the titles - attributions - create the half of some videos).
von Christine B•
Excellent course even if the delivery is a bit dry. The content is top notch from an expert with plenty of visual aids. Time well spent if you like history and/or Ancient Egypt.
von Gail M•
Excellent Course - found it fascinating
Like the first course, I do suggest that the notes be proofed and corrected although for the most part I could figure out the errors

Interesting course although I was expecting more discussions on the actual wonders instead of an introduction to the art, religion, language and history of ancient egypt.
I chose ancient Egyptian history because I wanted to see the Pyramids, the Nile River. Now, after understanding the culture here, there is a sense of awe in my heart.

This was a great course to do! Quick and easy! Sometimes I found the lectures weren't quite linear and became a bit confusing, but it was really fun to learn!
von Miguel P•
Highly interesting and well exposed. It really open the appetite for further knowledge of such amazing subject.
Congratulations to everyone involved!!!!

The Professor speaks a bit slowly but the problem can be easily solved by going onto 1.25 or even 1.50 speed.
Despite feeling like a bit of a basic entry-level course, I learned a lot of new things. Great quality MOOC.

It was really great to get a close insight into Ancient Egyptian history, culture and rituals

A great course on Egypt and a must for every student of Egyptian history and civilisation.
von Reggie W•
Too many videos. Quizzes often had some obscure questions. Need some interactive lessons.
von Simone H•
interesting information, but I had to play the videos in 2x speed bc he talked so slow
von David C•
Excellent course in Egyptian culture, language, artifacts, and archeology research.
von Miss L•
Unenthusiastic and talks a little slow. 2x speed fixes it tho lol
