I totally loved it, from beginning to end. Great concept, well-structured curriculum, with lots of knowledge. Thanks. (some videos lacked the Italian caption, but in fact this can be easily bridged)

The content of the course is well-chosen, organized and presented in an efficient way. Separating the videos, text and resources allows the used to gather resources to share with their own students. I also found it effective in that I could pace myself without missing anything. The art curators commentary was informative and succinct. It is one of the better online courses I have taken.

I was disappointed that my final project peer review did not provide me with any comments or feedback. Just a number rating without an explanation.

Un curso perfecto para realizar simultáneamente con Modern Art & Ideas, ya que comparten contenido.

Genial para aprender a elegir temas de forma original y trabajarlos de manera que el alumnado aprenda, se motive y disfrute.

El curso ha estado bien. Me ha resultado básico. Ciertas cosas podían haberse profundizado, en vez de centrarse tanto en presentar obras o en mostrarnos las obras a través de los temas, podrían haber profundizado más en cómo construir dichos temas y dichas presentaciones de obras. Las herramientas más interesantes son los anexos de cada tema. Creo que los vídeos deberían haberse centrado en eso.

It was good. I'm not a lover of contemporary art but i found it challenging in a positive way. This course has taught me look at contemporary art in a different way.

Quiz questions are too difficult, some are too general, but the answers hide in small details. It is really unfriendly for a beginner.
