"The History of Modern Israel – Part I: From an Idea to a State" is a time demanding course for all of us nowadays to know the real history of modern Israel. Thanks Coursera for the such opportunity.
It gave me more insight for me about Israel history. The tutors explained it in a simple way, although some parts of the materials were a little bit difficult to understand

Interesting course, but rather too short and not going very deep

Good, concise course.
The reason I didn't give it a higher rating is because I found it difficult (not impossible) to follow some of professor Eyal Naveh speach. His first language is not English, so I do not expect him to speak perfect English. However, I would expect the subtitles/transcript not to have basic mistakes. This became important when professor Naveb interview another person in Hebrew, as I found I could not really trust the subtitles.
I think it wouldn't take much to make it an excellent course.
My cheeky suggestion is to have a specialisation with The Emergence of the Modern Middle East by Professor Asher Susser as nucleus and a series of shorter, more in depth courses on certain of the bigger countries, such as Egypt, Turkey and Iran, similar to this one on Israel.

I feel that the course provided good information, but the quiz and test were too difficult. The quiz and test required knowledge not taught in the course, and the questions were hard to understand. The question issue is probably because of the language barrier, so that didn't bother me as much as the information on the quiz not being present in the course itself.

Thank you very much
It's a very interesting course but I feel it was only an introduction to introduction.
This subject should be with more information and should be organized in more than just 3 lessons
Why not a full semester course of 12 lessons or more!

No material is provided with the course.
It is difficult to consolidate the acquired knowledge without literature and references.
The instructors exposed the topics in a clear and fascinating way.

you can get an overview of the events not a balanced details about the conflict.it is bias and hold false preconceptions.
por SHALABHA S•
quite informative and comprehensive. Explained well enough for laymen to understand irrespective of prior knowledge.
Course had a great structure but the professor's translation from Hebrew to English has room for improvement.
por Ólafur T Y•
Nice course, although I do not understand the need for having 2 lectures in Hebrew.
por Tamara O•
there was no discussion and there weren't enough question.

The Israeli professor talks too fast, like a robot. Not engaging at all. Very poor communication skills. The English professor, although sober, does a much better job. I missed additional reading material being offer besides the Holocaust course offered by Tel Aviv University. In enjoyed the visiting professor Dr. Anita, but still everything is very stiff and devoid of passion. They could have put much more effort into producing a better product. There is no passion, just stating of the past facts. Sad.
por Matthias G•
The course was too short and did not provide any reading material.
It would be more helpful to have more and shorter quizzes.

der Kurs verarmt auf die Ehrlichkeit und Distanzierung
افتقر الكورس الى الصدق والحياديه

I appreciate some of the information provided during this course. I disliked the way it was presented, not very appealing and without teaching skills. I hated the final exam, very difficult to pass with absolutely no helpful feed back in order to improve yourself.
I have completed this course and have earned a certificate of achievement. Unlike Holocaust Part I, this course is really tedious. Perhaps, timeline and comparison charts and list of names of personalities could be provided.

This was more objective than I thought. Nevertheless, the information about the Zionism, refute itself and make us criticize about the dangerous notion.
