ミラノ工科大学(Politecnico di Milano) による Archaeoastronomy の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Archaeoastronomy is the “science of stars and stones”. It is an interdisciplinary science in between architecture, archaeology, and astronomy. It studies the relationships between the ancient monuments and the sky, in order to gain a better understanding of the ideas of the architects of the past and of their religious and symbolic world. The course provides the first complete, easy introduction to this fascinating discipline. During the course, many spectacular ancient sites of archaeology – such as Stonehenge in England, Giza and Karnak in Egypt, Chichen Itzá in the Yucatan, Macchu Picchu in Peru and the Pantheon in Rome – will be visited and the fascinating events occurring there in special days of the year (such as solstices, equinoxes, or the day of the foundation of Rome) will be shown and explained. The course also provides the necessary background on Astronomy with the naked eye and a general introduction to the role of Astronomy in religion and in the management of power among ancient cultures....




Amazingly made MOOC. Perhaps it feels a bit short in comparison to some of the others, but the material is well presented and the suggested readings give plenty of opportunity for further learning.



I really enjoyed this archaeoastronomy course. Professor Magli demonstrated outstanding knowledge of the subject, and was so generous in sharing his expertise through videos of worldwide locations.

I really wanted to like this course, but I found the density of information overwhelming. The quizzes also were worded quite poorly and made it so that all of the richness you learned was lost to you remembering some specific number or feature rather than understanding the material fundamentally.

The contents of the course are interesting however it is a shame that you can only access the quiz portion and assesments if you pay for the certificate. Same with the materials, it would be great if the readings and the suggested bibliography details could be downloaded.

Zu wenig über Videos erklärt - zu kompliziert gestaltet. Das hätte man besser machen können. Auch grafische Darstellungen wären sehr hilfreich gewesen und die wären auch machbar gewesen. Es fehlt hier das "Herzblut" um das interessante Thema an den Mann zu bringen.

this course gave some facts but failed to explain them clear enough. The videos explained fair enough but week 7 is horrible only containing texts and its real hard to imagine the conditions

There's a minor language barrier that made the course more difficult for me. The course materials, especially the last week, have absolutely nothing to do with the quizzes.

Information was interesting, however I finished the full course in 2 days and didn't find the presentation of the information or the assessments to be very intriguing.
