I really like the professor and his narration, quite engaging and interesting course. The only suggestion I have is to improve the quizzes with more analytical rather than fact-based questions.
An excellent introduction to the formation of what we know as the Middle East. This course offers great insight and context into this area, its peoples, cultures, economy, and politics.

I would have given this course a higher rating but, from my point of view, I would like more guidance on which books and which chapters to read.
10 min slots are given to read at various points, but there are nine texts referenced. It would be impossible to read even one text in those slots!
The lectures by Prof Susser are excellent and I enjoyed them greatly.

A good course for understanding the origins of the Middle East in the early 20th Century, with a great deal of background about the Ottoman Empire and Islamic thought and practice. However, it is mostly talking head, and use of a more interesting approach would have helped. The Professor is very knowledgeable and passionate.

The course was very illuminating and inspiring.
The forum though, regarding the answers from the professors, it seems as if they stopped answering our questions!!!
Thank you so much.
