Alathea completed this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
1. The title is misleading: a) Half the course dealt with archaeology, mostly in relation to the pre-Hanseatic settlement of Haithabu, rather than with the "World of the Hansa". The subject is very interesting, but merited its own course rather than being...
1. The title is misleading: a) Half the course dealt with archaeology, mostly in relation to the pre-Hanseatic settlement of Haithabu, rather than with the "World of the Hansa". The subject is very interesting, but merited its own course rather than being included in a course supposedly about the Hanseatic League. b) There was little information about Hanseatic cities other than Lübeck or about overseas "Kontor" - so again, "The World of the Hansa" was not quite accurate.
2. There was no indication that access to the course materials would end halfway through December. I was still completing the final week (having been unable to access the course for two weeks during November) when I found that the materials were no longer available. Strangely, they now seem to be available again, but I have no idea how long this will last.
3. I spent more time on the course than the estimate allowed for because German is not my first language and it took me more time to formulate answers.
4. There was little interaction between learners, or between learners and mentors, compared to other courses I have followed.
