Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I would recommend this course to anyone who has a general interest in ancient history. This course explored the similarities and differences between the ancient world of Greece and Rome and modern day. The course was not difficult and assignments were not due back to back. Quizzes were at least once a week, but students had the option to take the quiz as many times as needed before the due date (added bonus to help keep your grade up!) Reading assignments from the textbook were pretty decent, some reading assignments (chapters) were much longer than others, but was broken down into two parts during the week so as not overwhelm the student. Participation in the discussion boards a must as it may help clarify any concerns you had with a particular reading assignment!
This course was offered online, so that made traveling back and forth to a campus less of a hassle. Aside from that, visual lectures were posted on YouTube and were generally less than 20 minutes. Able to take quizzes multiple times before due date, one major writing assignment due as final project and was not difficult to write as most of the information came from the textbook, reading assignments and discussion board participation. You will learn the history of the ancient civilization and how their success and failures help shape civilizations to come.

Advice for students:
Give yourself time to read the chapters and take clear, detailed notes as this will help you retain the information when it comes time to take the tests. Make sure to always participate in the discussion thread each week, this will help you determine if you are retain the information learned throughout the week and help you connect with your classmates since there is no physical interaction. Take notes on the lectures presented on YouTube as well, it may not seem necessary but it comes in handy. Review your notes and then take notes on your notes! This helps you prepare for the tests better (also, if you would like, compile the video lecture notes as a part of your review notes if you don't want to take notes each time you watch a video for the week, but it will require that you go back and watch all the videos in single setting; no more than 1 hour, and you will have a more concise review sheet!) Hope this helps!
