I’m now living in Siena so visiting Roma and it’s wonderful ancient architecture especially the Roman forum and the palatine hill has new excitement and knowledge for me.
I appreciate the opportunity to learn the history of Rome and how it became the marvel city it is today . I will enjoy a lot more my next trip to Rome. Thank you .

It would be better if the quiz had no latin terms, for the directions in the lecture aren't always clear and the quiz is absolutely mystifying in places.

It was challenging because it required a lot of research because the questions on the quizzes seemed to be quite obscure
Thank you Prof. Paolo Corafa

The teacher is great! He shows us the actual ruins whenever possible, it is the next best thing to being there and seeing it ourselves.

Very good course, even though some of the quizzes seem to be not completely aligned with the information provided during the lessons
By Kate T•
Amazing detail and very interesting. Would have scored 5 stars if maps were included, cannot read them on screen.

The content is great, but the teaching (language, material, quizzes) are CHAOTIC. Maps are important for this course, but they are NOWHERE to be found. Quizzes are problematic, often pointing to either wrong answers (contradicting to the videos) or minute details that weren't mentioned at all. The language is confusing as well, as the lecturer did not provide description of the slides and maps, therefore the transcripts are no help at all.

Graphics were interesting but did not focus on what the professor was saying. The professor was sincere and seemed knowledgeable though his speech impediment became distracting very quickly. Overall, having visited the Palatine several times over the years, I found the course very helpful in giving me a feel for physical aspects of so much of what I have read about ancient Rome in history and literature. Thank you for the opportunity.
I was excited to take this course, eager to hear Prof. Carafa. However all of his knowledge, all of the work that went into creating this valuable course, was degraded by the very bad English text and subtitles. So many mistakes! 100+. Some are significant, some are comical, none are excusable. So five stars for the professor, no star for the transcriber.

I've taken several course dealing with this subject and definitely found this class informative, but the professor was difficult for me to understand and particularly towards the end I questioned whether the quizzes had any relationship to the lectures. Perhaps I didn't hear correctly. Speaking of hearing, the translations were not the best either.

Great content, especially for serious archaeologists. While understandable for the most part, the presentations in second-language English at times lagged.
By Michelle N•
Found a lot of translating errors which made the course a little frustrating. Overall learnt a lot about Ancient Rome.
By David J W•
Lost interest, couldn't finish. Probably could have read a book on the subject and saved myself the time.

some of the quiz questions have nothing to do with the course! I know I was about archaeology but it seemed more conducive to Roman architecture than anything else. This course was misleading.
By Massimo R•
Maps are terrible. Close Captioning non existent at times. English pronounciation is bad. The subject is interesting though
By Maureen C•
Topic of interest but hard to follow poor English of professor. Better use subtitles and Italian
By Marlene C•
No transcripts, difficult to understand the audio.
I thought this was a course about history turns out its a course about AutoCAD and needs software I can't install.
First quiz is on content not in the video, the video was about installing AutoCAD.
