This is the easiest class I've taken. I think it was designed to be online which is why it worked so well during COVID. Everything is pre-recorded so you can go at your own pace. You do have to complete the readings and attend discussions (which was the biggest pain) but other than that it was great.

Great class. I hadn't taken any history classes at UCLA, so it introduced me to academic history writing. My TA was strict, but that helped me improve.

This class was fully asynchronous and online and all lectures and assignments were posted at the start of the quarter allowing students to go at their own pace. Material was very manageable, there were 4 written assignments which were all pretty straight-forward and did not take too long to complete. The weekly quizzes had 2 attempts each, but I only ever needed one. Open book and easy, mostly based off of lecture. Lectures were super engaging and his set-up was phenomenal even for the pre-recorded format I think it was perfectly suited for this class since he was able to show us all the props and knick-knacks he collected while living in South Africa. You could really see his passion through the amount of effort put into his video lectures and high quality documentary-like videos. Would definitely take again especially as a STEM student wanting an easy GE, no regrets at all!
Discussion was a bit challenging at times, but it all depends on your TA as with most classes. Usually just an open discussion though about either readings (which most people didn't do since they were only used in discussion) or class materials.
The books we were asked to read were only used for one paper and the occasional discussion section so pretty easy to find quotes online if you are running low on time and cannot read them, even though they are both very interesting!

One thing I love about this class is that you can do things on your own time! Personally, I did not read any of the books (except for certain excerpts for the project) so I don't recommend buying any. I still learned a great amount, even though I've never conversed or was in a classroom (online or in person) with Professor Worger. This class is easy, but you definitely need to put in the work yourself! One thing I'd watch out for is your TA. Your assignments are worth a huge chunk of your grade so take your time! I thought I did pretty well, but my TA was strict over the smallest things. It forced me to improve though!

I really enjoyed this class I learned a lot and the assigned readings were actually very engaging just there were some weeks where the reading was a lot. This class was extremely easy and I love the self-paced structure. As long as you somewhat do the readings and watch the lectures you'll do great.

This class is so inspiring and the professor is so passionate about the topic to the point that he transmits it to the students. I absolutely loved his class and changed my perspectives of not just Africa but the world itself. I 100% recommend this class to anyone because it’s very interesting and engaging! I actually want to take another history class with professor Worger because he’s the best history professor I’ve ever had.
The workload can be a good amount but that is expected from a 5 units class. There are quizzes every week but you get 2 attempts and they’re not tricky. As long as you have seen the lectures, you’ll get 100%

This class is ez money. I never talked to Professor Worger once, all your interaction is with your TA. Shoutout to Lisa Kahn, she was the best part about this class. Assignments are pretty easy, quizzes are super easy, and I watched lectures at 1.7x speed.
