    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    l loved this class and I wish I could take it again next quarter! Remember in high school when the best weeks were when you got to watch a movie; the whole thing, not just a clip? Well that is this whole class! Plus it took care of my W and D requirements as well as putting 5 credits towards my humanities requirement. The class is fun, involved and you learn a lot even though you don't have to do very much out of class. The professor is super nice, accommodating and is super experienced but also extremely open-minded so she is a lot of fun to be around.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot in this class, all of the films we watched were made in the last 15 years, so they aren't archaic or boring but they are also all made outside the U.S. ( with some exceptions) by people who aren't Americans. They all provide authentic views into the cultures of the countries in which they were made so you get to learn about the differences and similarities of the values, beliefs and even habits of that culture. In the first week of the course, you learn about filming and directing techniques that are used particularly in foreign films and each week, before you start the film, the professor tells you the identifying traits of that country's film industry and you're later expected to find examples of those traits within the film. There are very few times where you need to take notes and you'll never take them during the film because the professor wants you to focus on the emotional side of the movie ( since foreign films stress emotions and character development more than U.S films).

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    You typically won't ever have to study for this class and there is very little reading involved, but there are a lot of extra credit opportunities and videos she wants you to watch on your own time. The extra credit usually comes in the form of another related movie but any other videos you watch won't be longer than 15-20 minutes. It's pretty hard to do poorly in this class, so just show up every day and participate. This is not a class that you can skip without serious detriment, but you won't want to anyways so it doesn't matter.

    Course Overview:

    This is a fun and interactive online course that allowed me to have flexibility in my daily schedule. The teacher is very detailed and reads ALL the work and most definitely cares about the success of her students. She truly has a passion for what she teaches and is very insightful! Overall this course was fantastic as long as the student keeps up at a steady pace.

    Course highlights:

    It is a writing intensive course so I personally was able to tell a difference in this area towards the end of the quarter but because I put in the effort. It takes a good 4-6 hours a week not including the time it takes to watch the films. But that is up to the pace of the student and how fast they work!

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Give thorough detail in your writings, pay close attention to the movies as well as enjoy them, be open, honest, truthful, and encouraging in your responses to other students.
