What people are saying

We analyzed reviews for this course to surface learners' thoughts about it

21st century norms in one review

In order to support this view, there is bias both in the selection of the stories and in the information which is left out from individual stories: and the aim of the stories seems to be to generate an emotional response based on 21st century norms rather than a deeper awareness of historical context.

hard going sometimes in one review

Hard going sometimes, some stories are very horrific.

mooc crammed into in one review

Easily an eight-week MOOC crammed into five overly-long modules.

no idea how in one review

"Four-hour a week" time commitment is nonsense (and I've NO idea how earlier reviewers claimed they finished weekly modules in two!)

ancestors went through in one review

Absolutely full of wonderful and heartbreaking personal stories from those who served, those left at home and it gave me a better understanding of what my ancestors went through.

been chosen deliberately in one review

As a result, stories appear to have been chosen deliberately to show Australian participants in WW1 as victims, and in particular to portray those who survived the war as victims of postwar Australian authorities presented as callous, penny-pinching and incompetent.
