This is indeed a great course. It is very simply put and very easy to follow up.\n\nDo join without any hesitancy if you have a genuine interest in learning about the history of ancient Egypt!
First online course and I loved every moment of it! It felt really refreshing to hear some old names that I used to study as a child. Well done and thanks again for the amazing opportunity!

Fascinating I enjoyed it very much.
I do suggest the notes be reviewed as there are a number of typographical errors and a few missed words..
Aside from that excellent

I did enjoy this course, but the instructor seemed very stiff and was clearly reading from a prompter. This made it hard to focus on what he was saying sometimes

Es interesante como introduccion . Seguro que motivará a los estudiantes a buscar más informacion sobre el fascinante mundo de la civilización antigua en Egipto

Very pleasant narrative, although a bit arbitrary choice of topics. At some points it got too detailed in relation to the general overall nature of the course.

Definitely recommend if you need a crash-course on Ancient Egypt! In-depth, concise, and well explained; suitable for all those interested in ancient history

An essay type question paper would also be quite useful since that will enable the person to go through the material and write proper essay type answers.

Week 2 ----History and Chronology Quiz is very tough. But the later onces are good enough. I have learnt a lot with this course. It fulfills my dream.

Very interesting course, the only thing I missed was a bit more order within each weekly session, with subparts clearly define.

I liked it, but I've expected more videos. For example, on the cult of Aton, on daily life of ancient Egyptians and their art.

slightly boring way of explaining the history behind every statue by the tutor with a monotonous voice tone

Muy básico para mi gusto pero es una buena introducción para aquellos que desconocen la cultura egipcia.
