I took these 2 courses after visiting the Penn Museum. It certainly makes me want to revisit that museum again and again! This is a great course to learn about Ancient Egypt.

Very interesting course with great on-line and book references, will be a great help and inspiration for one to visit museums containing Ancient Egyptian art and artifacts

I chose ancient Egyptian history because I wanted to see the Pyramids, the Nile River. Now, after understanding the culture here, there is a sense of awe in my heart.

This was a great course to do! Quick and easy! Sometimes I found the lectures weren't quite linear and became a bit confusing, but it was really fun to learn!

Despite feeling like a bit of a basic entry-level course, I learned a lot of new things. Great quality MOOC.

The presentations were interesting but why doe every segment include almost three minutes of credits? Most annoying. Credits once in the course are expected, maybe once a week but every segment??? I'll think twice about subscribing to a U Penn course again

The sound quality isn't very good.

Курс не соответствует названию. При упоминании Чудес Древнего Египта больше представляются храмы Карнака, гробница Нефертари. В текстах под видео полно ошибок. Вместо Тутмоса IV - Моисей, Пенн музей стал Пейн музей.

I did not understang how videos were cut each week. Why 10 videos of 5 to 10 minutes with half the time for photographic credits (!!!!) where all could be said in one 30 minutes video ? Students can concentrate for 30 minutes in a row.
Course was easy, sometimes even light. As long as you like Ancient Egypt, you already know, for example, everything that is said in week 6 regarding Tut's tomb discovery.
I have no doubt that Dr Silverman is an extremely capable professionnal but he is not an the best speaker for a course : the tone is grim and lacks some passion.
