The Ancient Greeks

Written 3 years ago
Pr Szegedy-Maszak gave me a very good introduction on Ancient Greeks , a subject one can spend his all life on . Using a chronological timeline , the video lectures present an overview of Greece since Prehistory . A book and Facebook Groups are good complements for such a wide subject .

Genomic and Precision Medicine

Written 2 years ago
Very informative. A clear overview and useful guidelines . The course offered by Pr Jeanette McCarthy is well structured and the self-pace/switch session system makes the work easy to organize .

Epigenetic Control of Gene Expression

Written 2 years ago
Excellent . Describing a lesser known part of genetics , this course provided me a clear understanding of epigenetics . Such course gives the motivation to learn more on the subject . The Facebook Group is active with many threads enriching the video lectures .

The Science of the Solar System

Written 2 years ago
No pain no gain ... Mike Brown (aka Plutokiller) almost killed me with the tricky quizzes full of twisted questions . This is the best course I've completed so far . The sub-section on small bodies is a 1st quality jewel . Too bad Pr Brown is now "lost in translation" beyond Pluto, searching for another planet . No bonus lectures for a lonnnnnnng time .

The Modern World, Part One: Global History from 1760 to 1910

Written 2 years ago
Among the first MOOCs I followed . And among the best .The pace at the time was easy to follow without any switch/self-pace option . This overview of global history is almost unknown in french universities where History is taught from an european point of view . I wish I could learn more from Pr Zelikow .

Written 2 years ago
Too bad this course is no longer available . It was a deep dive in Macroeconomics , clearly explained and progressing step by step to aggregate more knowledge every week . Pr Olekalns offers a clear synthesis on a complex subject .

Astronomy: Exploring Time and Space

Written 2 years ago
This course is a very wide outlook of physics and astronomy . I use it frequently as an introduction to choose other MOOCs on planets or astronomy . Picking one subject after another , Pr Impey introduce cosmology or exoplanets or robotic missions , particles , telescopes etc, etc ... Very informative at a basic level . Perfect for a start .

Moons

Written 2 years ago
Nice course organized by Pr Rothery . All recent robotic missions in the Solar System provide us with more and more datas on the subject . Pr Rothery is highly involved in the course forum and the Facebook Group . His book is a very good complement .

Terrorism and Counterterrorism

Written 2 years ago
Pr Byman grant us access to Georgetown expertise on terrorism . Perhaps the most profitable part of the course is the genesis of terrorism in minds , frustration and economic turmoil . The course is then divided in two parts to be chosen : South Asia or Middle East . All lecturers are of main interest .

Principles of Economics

Written 2 years ago
Great course. Either for micro or macroeconomics. Even if Pr Taylor is famous for his Taylor rule on monetary policy, the course is targeted to a wide audience with few knowledge in economics. Highly recommended.

The Modern World, Part Two: Global History since 1910

Written 2 years ago
By the time I completed this course (2014) , it was a full 14 weeks long session from 1760 to 2013 . The 2nd part helped me clarify the 1930's . A period among the hardest to understand . Too bad the Facebook Group is stone dead .

The French Revolution

Written 2 years ago
By far the course where the lecturer was the most involved in interacting with the online learners . Pr McPhee offers us a brilliant set of lectures . This was an excellent overview of what is taught in french schools . Portraying the french sociology and economy of the 1790's from a clear point of view helped me clarifying the several phases of the French Revolution . Pr McPhee' s involvement in forums,the Facebok Group and additional materials is a real bonus.

Globalization's Winners and Losers: Challenges for Developed and Developing Countries

A clear overview of globalization by one of the most brilliant teacher in the field. Pr Moran, helped by several guest lecturers, gives us a synthesis of trade agreements, FDI, imports, exports and their consequences on how productions of goods and services are located in a globalized economy.

The Eurozone Crisis

Written 2 years ago
Of course, looking back at the Eurozone Crisis is now a bit outdated , exept for Greece. Nonetheless, Pr Cowen in this very short set of lectures presents a perfect sequel to other courses such as "The Global financial crisis " by Yale on Coursera. Very informative.

Astrophysique : du système solaire au big bang

Written a year ago
Magali Deleuil et Denis Burgarella du Laboratoire d'Astrophysique de Marseille proposent sur la plateforme France Université Numérique une présentation en 6 parties de l'ensemble du champ de l'astronomie et plus précisément de l'astrophysique .Sont abordés les étoiles, le Système Solaire, les exo-planètes, la Voie Lactée, les galaxies et le Big Bang .

Le cours est abordable pour le grand public mais propose également des chapitres plus théoriques où les amateurs de physique pourront appliquer leurs connaissances . Le cours mélange clairement plusieurs niveaux .Quel plaisir de retrouver la convivialité des forums de discussion perdu sur Coursera depuis la fin de la gratuité et des sessions fixes en 2016 ! ! Je ne manquerais pas de me ré-inscrire lors de la prochaine session , uniquement pour y participer .
