This course was really helpful in understanding the significance of art in social activism, and the project was a lot of fun.
I plan to go back and rewatch some guest lessons and look at the materials in the future.

I really loved many aspects of the information this course touched on and found many of the artist discussions and projects very inspiring. Pedro was an insightful and generous interviewer. The honours assessments were interesting and challenging and took me out of my comfort zone, in a good way. BUT it feels like it has become a set and forget project for the instructors. The transcriptions are often inaccurate or missing sections, the audio occasionally bad, and many of the links with a 404 feeling that you've landed somewhere that once was, but no longer is. The promised network of collaboration is not easily accessible and disappointingly the forums posts are a little like having a ships in the night greetings with not much follow up. Really could use active moderation and better archiving of projects to draw on for inspiration.

The bi-weekly assignments mixed with the bi-weekly lessons is a really great course structure. The audio on some of the videos interviews can be poor, and I wish some lectures, especially the last one were more in depth, but over all great course with a good pace.

Great explanations for entry level art students, perhaps I would have liked them to go a little deeper into each topic. The interviews with other artists were very nice, the visuals and references throughout the course were very appropiate.

Interesting course materials. I particularly enjoyed the guest lecturers. Some of the main lectures were a bit scattered and difficult to follow. Also the subtitling and notes on the various videos were poorly done, often leaving out the most important words and replacing them with : [foreign]. At one point the coursera subtitles, which was just the word foreign, obscured the video subtitles so that I couldn’t read them.

Nato Thompson is the WORST. If you can get past him interrupting Pedro Lasch at every opportunity he gets, you'll be able to survive the course. I also feel that the transcription of the lectures needs to reviewed and improved quite a bit.

Not what I was expecting but I'm glad I stayed for the whole course. I learned something new and that's all you can ask for.
