Awesome but incomplete
This class was awesome and very simple to follow. The proffesor did a great job. However, the class is incomplete and the last weeks are missing for some reason.
*** update*** i was not aware that the class is going on as i wrote this review. So those chapters are coming! Five stars superb job!
Missing Week 1 episode
[ERROR 404] Episode Week 1--The European Emergence won't download (404 error). Please re-upload to your server! (Writing a review seems to be the only way to report a problem.)
That said, this is a GREAT intro course. Dr Moss really knows his stuff, and his style is very clear.
