It's a very easy course. It touches an assortment of topics followed up with some easy quizzes. Don't expect to get a complete history or overview. No in depth coverage of a certain philosopher or idea. I guess this course is meant to to wet your appetite for philosophy.

The value of this course is in the proposed reading materials and the rather active fora. It's nice to discuss the philosophy topics on there with people who to a certain degree share the same a vocabulary given by the course.

Great for beginners. Maybe too light or boring for people familiar with the subjects discussed.

Decent introductory course. I thought some material was covered better than others. On the plus side, the discussion forums were pretty active though.

I was unable to join class. You must bring in our notice class timing? You must send us some notes too so that we can study. There should b rewind video system so that we can watch again and again.*

Excellent introductory course- very suitable for those with no background in philosophy. Many participants annoyed by grade given as LOWEST mark achieved in multiple choice assessments!

I liked that the lectures were given by different professors all lecturing in their areas of specialization. The course seemed a little too easy, with the only requirement for a statement of accomplishment being passing each of the weekly quizzes. I really liked the final section on time travel.

Excellent course - facilitators actually mingled with participants. Clunky forum not fit for purpose though.
