    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because I enjoy history quite a lot. This course taught me many things that I did not learn in high school and went in depth about pretty much every topic it covered.

    Course highlights:

    One huge highlight of this course, for me, was its convenience of being online. I learned things about the Roman Empire all the way through the finding of the Americas by Christopher Columbus.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    The advice I would give would to make sure that you have the time to do the work for this course before registering.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    In summary, I took Western Civilization I online through Wallace. Because it was not on-campus, Mr. Riley Turner, my instructor, uploaded notes, powerpoints, and narrations. It was a fairly easy course for me because I am self-motivated and stayed on top of my studies. His quizzes were easy, and the answers could be found online. Most of the grades come from "reflection papers" - these are not bad, you just have to read and take notes in order to write them. His goal was to help his students learn, not give them a challenge. I have never been a "history buff", but this class was pretty interesting for someone who is not very enthusiastic about the subject.

    Course highlights:

    Western Civ I covers the beginning of time to the Empire of Rome. I learned about various concepts, groups, and individuals. My favorite section was Greek philosophy/philosophers. Mr. Turner went in depth and explained the lessons in a manner that was easy to understand. He does give a study guide for the midterm and final exams, and he even puts extra-credit questions on both exams.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    1. Listen to his narratives while viewing the powerpoints 2. Take notes!! 3. Keep up with discussions 4. Submit your quizzes on time 4. Make sure your "reflection papers" reflect your personal knowledge of the material 5. Study for the exams with the study guides provided
