"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.

A very thorough learning experience and really showed how the struggle for a sovereign state for the Jews came about and all the differences which needed to be ironed out.

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!

you can get an overview of the events not a balanced details about the conflict.it is bias and hold false preconceptions.

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.

Nice course, although I do not understand the need for having 2 lectures in Hebrew.

there was no discussion and there weren't enough question.
