Professor Kleiner has been an amazing guide. There is nothing that she dint teach us with all her heart. She had put in extra efforts in shaping this course very well.. Glad to be your student.

An excellent course for everyone interested in ancient Roman architecture and culture in general: exciting content and stunning visual support, great teacher with clear and passionate explanations of the scholar who truly loves her subject, lively discussion forums stimulating further research, with mentors always present and attentive (special thanks to Cynthia Willett with her unique ability to create a friendly atmosphere of like-minded people gathering and exchanging ideas and observations!). And through peer-review activities I got in touch with wonderful and creative people from all over the world.
Now I know which books to buy to deepen my knowledge (Ward-Perkins of course).
The fact the course has been registered during the semester at Yale gives a sensation of being one of its fortunate students.
I highly recommend the Roman Architecture course by Yale and Prof. Diana E.E. Kleiner!

I started this course before a trip to Italy and completed it after I returned home. It helped me to understand and appreciate Roman (and Greek) architecture and art in Rome, Pompeii, Herculaneum, and Sicily. Professor Kleiner is a very good presenter. Content and delivery are both great. This course was produced around a decade ago and consists of a camera recording lectures. Some of the images of drawings and photos are not very clear. If it is updated, the format could be modified so that the images are presented digitally and oral presentation is done with a voice-over narration, maybe with the instructor appearing in person at certain intervals.

It is an amazing course! I enjoyed it and learned a lot about Roman Architecture, and its influence on architecture in the following times. The lectures are built very interesting, excellent visual accompaniment, the lecturer speaks very clearly and tell interesting stories. Essays on interesting topics, as well as interesting to read essays of fellow students and check them, knowledge is checked both during the lectures themselves, and as part of the tests, which allows you to immediately understand where you have spaces and repeat the materials. The final assignment of the course is very creative and inspiring.

This was my first class on coursera and I loved it. The lectures are super interesting and good to follow. It surely widened my horizon! And now I need to travel to so many places to have a real look on all the places we "visited" during this class.. :-) The essays and design projects are set at the right time and are a nice challenge, I like the idea that the students evaluate each other.
Only point that could be improved: I think some of the videos are already from 2009. Not sure if excavations and studies already brought new information about the one or other topic, which is discussed in the lectures.

This course has been exceptional! Prof. Kleiner is such a fantastic professor and I learned so much from her lectures. Her method is really effective, since lecture n.1 I was able to analyze monuments and the architectural development that lied behind them, and at the end of the course I feel I have the tools to analyze any ancient Roman building. This is a course that takes you from 0 to 100 in your knowledge of ancient Roman architecture.

First-rate course. I would highly recommend listening to, absorbing, loving every minute from this brilliant instructor. She's clearly passionate about Roman Architecture and Art History and it comes through in how the course is designed and the many photographs shown. Thank you so much for this wonderful journey! When I visit any of these incredible sites I will be sure to send Professor Kleiner a photograph as she suggested.

This was an excellent course. There were good visuals, the professor was pleasant and made everything come alive. Constant references and comparisons to previous lectures topics helped clarify. I believe because this course was the actual college classroom, it was much better than many of the courses that are filmed just for this site. I felt I was in the room learning and even though I was only auditing, got so much out of it.

I am a 52 year old mom without a degree. I am planning on returning to school, but it has been delayed due to COVID 19. I decided to take this class to educate myself before pursuing a degree in Art History. What a wonderful class to start with. I took this class serious, took notes, printed up maps and layouts, etc I enjoyed ever minute of it. It is well worth the purchase of a certificate ! The instructor was amazing !!

Very interesting course. The university needn't presentations. For me, an Italian student of architecture, is the best way to study in deep the Roman architecture from another point of view, of the American researchers. Another method of research, another method of teaching. Different not needs better...that can be only an enrichment.
At last but not least, the learning of technical English. FIVE STARS.

Professor Kleine is a truly engaging teacher and it is evident that she loves what she does through the effort she puts in giving her lectures. The topics are interesting, in-depth and eye-opening. The structures I never had any idea have been presented and studied, which made this course truly marevellous. Kudos to Professor Kleine and the team for creating this course which I will never forget! 😊

Aprendi de un fragmento de la historia de la arquitectura, como también que elementos y componentes fueron los más importantes para su momento y que aún hoy usamos como referentes. Gracias

This is a brilliant course. Diana Kleiner is inspirational, and her knowledge, experience and enthusiasm are infectious. I have been to Rome many times and to Pompeii twice, so had some pre-knowledge of the buildings and the history. However, my next trip will be as soon as possible and much more valuable thanks to this comprehensive and engaging set of lectures. Thank you.

I so thoroughly enjoyed this course with Dr Kleiner. She is an excellent lecturer - clear, concise and interesting. She loves Ancient Rome and will Inspire you to visit or revisit Rome. I wish I had the knowledge in this class before I ever visited Rome and the Roman Empire, but I look forward to traveling there with new eyes. Thank you Dr. Kleiner!

Excellent professor, excellent images, excellent ways of evaluating your learning experience. I enjoyed very bit of it. It helped me remember lots of bits and pieces of the History of Rome, but through a more graphic approach. I was able to advance at my own pace, which made things easier.

Excellant Course. Designing your own city and assignments ensure effective learning. Professor style reinforces concepts giving you a holistic picture of Roman Architecture. This course would encourage you to learn about other styles of architecture to compare with Roman Architecture.

This course is simply sensational. I am discovering unimaginable things and I have much to thank the teacher of the course and the Coursera for the opportunity. With little time of course I became a happier person, with better expectations and believing much more in the future.

Brilliant; though I have no back ground of Architecture (I am a lover of Roman history), I was surprised that Prof Kleiner made the concepts and terms so easy for beginners like me.
Definitely looking for more courses from professor on Rome.

This class was so engaging. The teacher was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The assignments were actually fun to do and I can't wait to share my new knowledge with my own high school AP art history students next school year.
