Fascinating overviews across the broad spectrum of world history, with significant attention to non-western history. The professor is a very good amiable TV/video personality.
A problem was the peer-review system of grading the essays. That does not really work, and seems especially a problem in MOOC's in the humanities.
You needed a good background in history to really appreciate the way very complex subjects were handled. A strong point were discussions with specialists on different subjects.
