A very interesting, well-designed course. I was expecting the course to focus more on the Birmingham Quran itself, but in fact the Birmingham Quran was used as a way into other, related subjects, including Arabic calligraphy, book design and production, methods of dating manuscripts, resources for accessing Middle Eastern manuscripts online, and the ethics of collection. There was good feedback from the educators throughout the course (including the two weeks after the course officially ended).
I wasn't sure whether to say that the course is appropriate for beginners or intermediate. Judging by the other students' comments, the course seems to be equally interesting to people who were completely new to the topic and to those already familiar with it.
