This was an incredibly detailed course that provided an in-depth and interesting view of ancient Egypt. I would highly recommend this as an essential course for those interested in Egypt's history.

It is a great second part of the series of courses about Egypt from Prof. David. Silverman. Highly recommend the course to all those who found value in the first course from the same professor.

Interesting course although I was expecting more discussions on the actual wonders instead of an introduction to the art, religion, language and history of ancient egypt.

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!

The Professor speaks a bit slowly but the problem can be easily solved by going onto 1.25 or even 1.50 speed.

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

Too many videos. Quizzes often had some obscure questions. Need some interactive lessons.

What should be an interesting subject was spoiled by the rather dry delivery of the 'lecturer'.
Additionally it appears that these courses are also a good way of them gaining royalties from the recommendation of their own book for the course, this seems to be a regular occurence with any of the courses I've done on this platform!
Lastly, did we really need the huge list of credits after every lecture? Sometimes they lasted longer than the lecture did!

From the course, you can learn some interesting facts about ancient Egypt. But I would not call the course well structured. In some places, the narrative seems cut off and unrelated.
Anyway, many thanks to David for his contribution and the opportunity to learn something new.

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

A dull tone, and over-reliance on the artefacts of the Penn museum, as if there were no other museums for egyptology in the world, are a few of the issues within this introduction course.
