I really enjoyed this class -- it's fun. Loved the way it made use of multiple experts and historic venues, including a range of presenters and graphic designers; created a nice platform for people who wanted to actually try recipes while still encouraging those of us who were coming at this from more of a historical perspective; provided context for the lessons; and engaged with the student body. In fact, this is the best class I've experienced so far for active moderator engagement in the discussions, and for leveraging student-provided info into the course itself. (And FutureLearn, of course, is a platform particularly well-suited to student discussions and supplementary material, allowing students to complete the course taking very little time each week, or spend more time and have a more engaging and deeper experience.) I could wish for a bit more academic rigor, but that's just a personal preference.
