This is a survey course in Western Civilization from 1700s up to 2000 providing an overview of the rise of eastern and western Europe, the Enlightenment, period of Revolutions, the industrial revolution, WWI and WWII through the end of the cold war. Each topic includes learning objects, exercises. The audio text discusses different topics than the written text on the screen for each lesson. This can be used fulfill a general education requirement or survey course.

There is no mention of the United States except in the final summary. The topic is covered unevenly.

Note: There is no mention of events occurring after 2000, including the election of President Obama, 9/11, or the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Technical Remarks:

The software and browsers listed are earlier versions than in uses in Oct 2012, so students with old computers can use this program.

Ease of use is simple and fairly accessible, however the oral materials are different from the visual materials. The oral text is in a drop down menu, which I believe is not accessible. Maps in the visual section do not always correspond with the oral materials.

Political, social and economic history from the Age of Enlightenment through World War II and beyond, although vague about when the text stops.

Technical Remarks:

Excellent. Not only did it identify the best browser, it indicated that the program would not work in Safari, unless Firefox 1.5 is installed.

It even provided viewers to Microsoft Office for those who either did not have MS applications or did not have the latest version of MS Office.

The content omits the numerous seminal ideas below but is not limited to my inventory. They do, however, represent the social, political and economic ideas that the content submission wishes to cover. Nonetheless, it does not include the intellectual (philosophical, social history, and some esthetic contributions) of Western Civilization for the period selected.

 

More than that, there is a serious omission of ANYTHING that the Americas contributed to Western Civilization from the Enlightenment (1650 to 1700 sparked by philosophers Baruch Spinoza (1632–1677), John Locke (1632–1704), Pierre Bayle (1647–1706), physicist Isaac Newton (1643–1727), and philosopher Voltaire (1694–1778) to 1999)
