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!

Very informative. Video commentary is a little dry but the further reading section offers a lot. I find it is necessary to purchase the recommended book in order to really get a good understanding of the course.

It was an amazing experience to learn through videos and English subtitles accompanied with on-site pictures for monuments. It was simple, interesting and focused on details.
Thanks Dr. David and the team

If you are into the Ancient civilisation of Egypt, this is a good start to hook you up, but if you are looking for more answers, this is not enough. You need more, and i need more.

it was awesome. just the professor had this really monotone voice without any impression on his voice or face, that made the courses a tiny bit boring. but it was a great course
por Tejas M•
Really good introduction to anyone who wants to get a clear picture of the chronology of Egypt's ancient civilization, as well the major elements of it's DNA. Great course.

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.
por Ira P•
This was a really good course. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is genuinely interested in learning more about Egyptian myths and history.
por Carlos A A B•
Very interesting course. I was looking forward to at least a week dedicated to studying ancient hieroglyphs but they were only mentioned in passing.
por Thomas P•
Fascinating course, great content. Lecturer seemed uncomfortable with presenting to camera at first, but seemed to improve as course went on

While Dr. Silverman is not an animated speaker, he is clear, direct and to the point. I enjoyed learning new things about ancient Egypt.
por RESSE B•
Great cours, learn a lot in it. Bacis about Acient Egypt Civilization, history, deities, writing systems etc.... Thanks Pr. Silverman.
por Elsa R•
Very interesting course, the only thing I missed was a bit more order within each weekly session, with subparts clearly define.
por Kira S•
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.
por Lisa B•
Good overview of Ancient Egypt. Please not that I was unable to open any of the reading material that was linked to Penn.
por Ilse M M•
El tema está muy bien estructurado y la información es interesante, me gustaría que hubiese sido un poco más interactivo.
por Varsha C•
Very informative and resourceful. However, the instructor could have been a little more energetic during the lectures.
por Tammi D•
Very informative course. The instructor uses a lot of beautiful images of ancient Egyptian art and architecture.
por Menna t M•
slightly boring way of explaining the history behind every statue by the tutor with a monotonous voice tone
por Jessica I S G•
Muy básico para mi gusto pero es una buena introducción para aquellos que desconocen la cultura egipcia.
