  • Kristine Sergejeva

    Kristine Sergejeva completed this course, spending 8 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very hard.

    This was/is the most brilliant MOOC I have had until now.

    The lectures and their delivery are traditional and what we could call as old-school. But the professor, his knowledge, insights, his manner of delivery, his wisdom and wittiness; recommended readings; absolutely fascinating forum discussions - all these aspects were exceptional.

    Highly recommended!
