The Bible's Prehistory, Purpose, and Political Future

I thoroughly enjoyed this course, both the lectures and the materials associated with them  I've been out of biblical studies for a while and enjoyed the chance to catch up on some new ideas.
The Art and Archaeology of Ancient Nubia

Emory University

The lectures were excellent because the instructor is so involved in the topic.  I learned about a culture I had not previously studied.
The Science of Gastronomy

The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Not  like any other course I've ever taken.  Quite an introduction to new ways of thinking about what cooking is.  Not difficult but requires full participation to get full benefits.

Johns Hopkins University

Worst course I have ever taken.  Kept changing requirements.  Relied 80% on student evaluations.  Ugh, ugh, uch.
Introduction to Clinical Neurology

University of California, San Francisco

Strictly for medical professionals.  I was so lost, and if you so much as miss one assignment, you don't get a chance to catch up.  Probably a real world experience, but it was just too hard for me.
Understanding the Brain: The Neurobiology of Everyday Life

The University of Chicago

I learned an amazing amount here.  I love taking a course when the professor is as involved as this one is.  Great reading materials and many  new insights.  
The Camera Never Lies

University of London International Programmes

This was a highly unsatisfying experience in all respects.  I know the prof knows the material but he just can't handle online teaching. 
Archaeology's Dirty Little Secrets

Brown University

I loved this course!  It's the only course I've taken from Coursera where I looked forward to the other students' work because everyone was fully involved.  I felt as though I were actually in a classroom rather than alone at home.   
International Human Rights Law: Prospects and Challenges

Duke University

Outstanding course.  Detailed, excellent supplemental material, interested instructor.  Worth  time.
