A valuable and hugely informative course. I am new to Australia and this course has helped me to understand many of the complex issues to do with the land's identity; past, present and future.
A fantastic and vital course. Lectures are succinct and easily digestible, with beautifully filmed and edited interviews providing a range of expert insights on the subject. Thank you!

This course was very helpful in providing an Aboriginal perspective and provoking one's own reflections on culture and colonialism and its accompanying problems.
I apprciated that the content was presented by a variety of community members and the notes were not just printed form the transcripts but were connections to bothe community links / sites as well as to some academic papers. This combination was valuable.
It was also appropriate, given the topic, that the assignments required participation and personal reflection as well as peer reviews.
Occassionally a link was not available or was out of date. I did once get a comment re. a late submission but in fact only one assignment was available for review instead of the two required to complete the assignment. Perhaps a software tweek to accommodate that event.

This course, developed by the University of Sydney, potentially outstanding and fairly solid in terms of learning design, might be improved in two ways: ensuring that all hyperlinked resources (readings) work and by carefully reviewing the accuracy of some video content that might be considered as inaccurate in relation to some neighbouring Aboriginal Nations.
Readings/links that do not function: Week 1 - NSW Department of Health (2004); Week 2 - Karskeus (2011); Week 3 - Gilbert (1988); Week 4 - Smith (2009) & Stolen Generations Testimonial Foundation (2017); Week 5 - Attenborough (2009) & Troy and Walsh (2009); and Week 6 - Aboriginal Legal Service & Taffe (2014).

Very informative course, however the more detailed and academic resources were often broken links at the time I am writing this review. Though they were often suplimental, I see the readings as critical for filling in the more lightweight content presented via video.

Reading times are not good estimates for how long it will take to read working. This made scheduling the course into a study plan tricky. Some weeks had very lengthy reading recommendations. The readings were however very insightful.

it's a good course. Not what I was looking for, but I enjoyed it quite a lot.

Disappointing. The course is mostly politics, not culture. I feel I have learned very little of Indigenous culture as such.
