The variety of presentations of a vast amount of knowledge made it engaging. Dr. Radner herself was engaging! The course provided a deep look into a civilization that is a bedrock to the modern world.
This was my first MOOC and I fully enjoyed every aspect. The knowledge level of the instructors was evident as was their commitment to their students and the varied formats were consistently engaging.

It was a fun and interesting course. There were many tests and sometimes they have been a bit specific andI will not remember the details of names and dates right after taking them. So, even though the tests were good, they may have focused on themes a bit more than facts.

Karen is very knowledgeable, and mostly engaging. At first, I thought the student question and answer was not valuable, but I was wrong! Some of the most interesting tidbits came here. The experts section was not useful. Have one speak on his area of expertise.

The course was an interesting overview of a small but very important time and place history. I found the material interesting and the level of detail was what right for me.

Very interesting, in particular getting an understanding of what society looked like and what people experienced as citizens of this early empire.

The course was relatively short and succinct. It answered a number of questions, and opened up some new areas of interest. Well done. Thank you.

Interesting. I also purchased her book 'Assyria an Introduction' to read a more indepth writing. Thank.s

I was inspired by the notion of "client-states" within Organising an Empire: The Assyrian Way.

Had heard very little of this great civilization; the course gave a superb insight into it
by Joy S•
super interesting. I would give it a 5 stars except it has peer review in the final week
by J B•
Exactly what I needed: A quick insight into the Assyrians. Thank you so much.
Not enough material about the military history of the empire.

I learned much about the Assyrian Empire which I did not know before or ever imagined. Instructor Karen Radner taught the content well and in depth. I recommend this course. The content gave me much insight on how Assyrian traditions were also kind of similar to those of neighboring empires in ancient times. I am, however, missing the course certificate: therefore only 3 stars

El curso esta bien pero para los alumnos que no hablamos ingles , esta muy mal, las traducciones no son buenas , y sobre todo los cuestionarios es dificilisimo contestar si no esta bien traducido , hay que estar siempre pegado al traductor de google , o al que sea para poder contestar alguna pregunta . Deberian solucionar esto
