    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I've chosen the 8-week online course for this class. This class is amazing. The professor makes sure that you understand the course very well. Although it is online, you are required to get involved. I think that is a plus. Using the discussion board and the thoughts from my fellow students helped me better understand the course. I would admit that history is one of my weakness but this course and the professor helped me escalade that weakness and turned it into knowledge.

    Course highlights:

    While taking this course, I've learned a lot. It gave me better understanding on how the World War I started and ended. It gave me an insight on the cause and effect of World War I and the Great Depression right after. This course also helped me understand what the New Deal did to improve the economy and how it gave hope to the people during the Great Depression. Right after World War II, it enhanced that hope to fully end the Great Depression. It created new consumer culture providing each household with cars and home appliances. Homeownership also increased and therefore improved the American way of life.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Passing this class is easy when you put your time into it. Each week you are required to read the text thoroughly. I think that is given to all classes but I want to mention it anyway. You need to understand the concept and make sure you to consider the 5W's (What, Who, Why, Where, When) and the H (How). Also, you need to take notes. Memorization also helps in identifying which law had been passed and what organizational groups are involved to a specific cause. Overall, you just need to put your effort and do the readings and assignments on time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Great professor who knows so much about history, lectures are informal but extremely informative especially if you ask questions.

    Course highlights:

    I gained an in depth knowledge of US history that I actually remembered after the semester. The professor talks about it like he lived it and makes it extremely interesting.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    You have to know how to write essays, there are three exams and that's it. The exams are just "pick one of the following prompts and write an essay."

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This course is great. The Professor is animated and very informative. Her teaching style keeps you engaged and If you love history then this is definitely the class for you.

    Course highlights:

    I loved learning about the different Native American tribes and how they vary based on their homes they built. The farmers has bigger homes and were more solidified and large in number because they knew how to work the land. The hunters were the ones who had tepees, made from cow skin and they were small in number because they traveled a lot, moving when the food moved.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take many notes and don't be afraid to ask the Professor questions for help. Also be involved in class. After all, you do pay for the classes so it doesn't make sense to sit in silence for two hours. Make them work for you.
