Perguntas Frequentes – FAQ

  • Ao se inscrever para um Certificado, você terá acesso a todos os vídeos, testes e tarefas de programação (se aplicável). Tarefas avaliadas pelos colegas apenas podem ser enviadas e avaliadas após o início da sessão. Caso escolha explorar o curso sem adquiri-lo, talvez você não consiga acessar certas tarefas.

  • Quando você adquire o Certificado, ganha acesso a todo o material do curso, incluindo avaliações com nota atribuída. Após concluir o curso, seu Certificado eletrônico será adicionado à sua página de Participações e você poderá imprimi-lo ou adicioná-lo ao seu perfil no LinkedIn. Se quiser apenas ler e assistir o conteúdo do curso, você poderá frequentá-lo como ouvinte sem custo.

  • The course consists of five weeks, each week dealing with a different aspect of what we can learn from the human skeleton in an archaeological context.

    Each week is concluded with a multiple choice quiz about that week's subject, as well as a "Solve the Mystery" exercise that involves students analyzing a fictional skeleton using the knowledge they have gained in that week. The final course grade is based on a combination of the grades received for these two exercises each week.

    Course Content

    Week 1 The Osteobiography. Estimating age in adults and subadults, estimation of sex and stature.

    Week 2 Paleopathology. Different types of disease and trauma that can be detected in the human skeleton.

    Week 3 Paleodiet. Using stable isotope analysis and dental disease to reconstruct diet in the past.

    Week 4 Activity Reconstruction. Using entheseal change, joint degeneration and teeth to reconstruct activity in the past.

    Week 5 Mobility and Migration. Using long bone morphology, Strontium isotopes and ancient DNA to reconstruct mobility and migration.

  • No, that is not necessary. All the study materials needed to complete this course, are provided during the MOOC.

    Of course, if you want to learn more, you can always look for more (free) information online, or even buy a book on a particular subject.
