Sobre o curso

This Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) will offer the participants an introduction into contemporary geopolitics, starting from the origins of classical geopolitics and continuing the discussion with the deep analysis of the examined country-cases, including the US, Russia, and China. Combined with small tests, based on the video’s and recommended readings, the participants will be encouraged to dive into the complex theories and phenomena and get familiar with the concepts that are still very relevant in the contemporary world....

The course is indubitably informative, and of great help in understanding the evolution of geopolitics as well has the historical context behind many of the present-day geopolitical equations.

Very good course, very good introduction to geopolitics. It gave the theories, case studies and provided the students with good background materials (articles and books) as well as references to go deeper. It would be good if in the future students can get also, as they do in other MOOCs, the pdf of the slides. I appreciated it very much to be able to take the quizzes, which is not very common any longer as it used to be, unless one pays for the certificate. Thank you.

I found the course challenging since it's been many years since I had to study International Relations at this level. I noticed that some of the suggested readings were not available but taking thorough notes and using the Internet made up for the missing readings. I enjoyed the lectures and learned a great deal.

Engaging and informative course. Good introduction to the field which makes you feel like wanting more. In this sense the professor accomplished his goal. On the constructive side, the quizzes sometimes marked the correct answer as incorrect. Overall outstanding!

I think the course was comprehensive in its description of geopolitics and followed a time-linear path while introducing new concepts, which was nice. I wish they'd bring in more guest speakers though, they were especially interesting.

I learnt a lot, but found that the course needs to be edited significantly.

-The first few weeks are especially confusing and some of the slides from Week 9 would have been better in Week 1.

-At the beginning it would have been really helpful to know that GP is a subset of IR.

-Clearly define the different schools of GP thought and stick with the names you use for each term.

-There were numerous grammatical errors and a good edit would have fixed this.

-Consistent headings and the use of the same terms for the same concept would have helped immensely.

-I think the content is very informative and Andrei speaks clearly and in a well-modulated tone but his speaking notes also require editing to meet with English language conventions (or speak in your native language and have a translator).

-I enjoyed the readings except a few weeks were too long. 2hrs is a good time frame.

Overall I learnt a lot and am very glad that I did this course. With refining I would have given this course 5 stars.

There are lectures missing and correct answers are marked incorrect. This course needs to be edited.
