    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is at the University of Maine at Augusta, which is not listed. Seth Widgerson does an excellent job of educating his students online. Each week we are to read a chapter and watch a prerecorded class. Students then have to write a 300 word response to each of these assignments. Information retention is higher for me because I am able to 'review' everything that I have read or watched in my 300 word summaries. In addition, students are to complete a midterm essay and a final essay. The final is a ten page paper about your town during the civil war. I feel as though I learned a lot about my town and I love the appreciation that I gained from doing this assignment.

    Course highlights:

    I gained a great appreciation for the information that I learned. Mr Widgerson offers a teaching method that is comprehensive and students are to demonstrate what they have learned by essentially paraphrasing the lessons.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    When taking this course, the assignments should be spread throughout the week. Students are not able to complete the work at the last minute. When allowing time for watching the class, give yourself 2 hours. The chapters are lengthy also so allow for breaks in your reading. It is time consuming but this way of learning that he has set up is beneficial because you really learn the material.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course whether or not you enjoy history, because the subject matter is very interesting and the professor keeps it fun!

    Course highlights:

    A highlight of this course would definitely be the way the tests were given; no multiple choice throughout the whole class, only short answer and essay questions. That may make most be people go "ew, no way!", but it definitely pushed me to study harder and to actually learn the material rather than just memorize!

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Definitely make a quizlet! Making quizlets/flashcards is definitely a must for focusing on the key points for the material!
