Griffith University Discussion Board, at the very start was difficult to fathom out. Jenny’s welcoming advice removed the fear of attempting to use the board, knowing that my failure to access the board would not hinder learning to write because we could send our episodes directly to her by email.

The course is very apt for the beginner writers as well as for more experienced ones. Jenny put us at ease from day one and even before by sending personal emails; worked a magic for me to start pressing the keyboard immediately. Griffith Discussion Board is very effective.

The course was comprehensive and each topic could have been a course by themselves. it stimulated thought. I did the course in isolation and would have benefited from other student input, however, I did note that there was not a lot of input from other earlier students. The amount of information was almost overwhelming.

Thoroughly enjoyed the course and the research it encouraged - didn’t want it to end - will continue some reading now course finished.

I guess this topic was more knowledge focused than the other courses I completed. Two topics I enjoyed the most were The Creation Myths and the Australian Dreamtime Myths. The last exercise was helpful. I now have all the information which I can refer to in the future.

It gave me a greater understanding of the attitude to life of our ancestors. I may be the university’s oldest student - 87 years old. I have a few difficulties with the technology in some instances.

I enjoyed this course, visiting areas learned about in grammar school in England. Also picking up on new ideas of areas that were unknown, and getting other peoples take on all legends studied after a gap of 65 years. It is always good to revisit areas of your past.

Course was excellent as was Mary’s support. Unfortunately the others didn’t participate in the discussion forum but Mary’s terrific responses made up for the lack. Very supportive and encouraging. a terrific course to do. Thanks.

Win Howard has put a lot of information and photos into this course which makes it most interesting and a real eye opener as to the extent of the night sky and what is out there.

I did the untutored version of the course because I didn\\'t want to keep up with a prescribed schedule. At the rate of one per week that would have been too fast for me to enjoy. It actually took me 19 weeks to complete. The temptation with an untutored course is just to read it, rather than doing the exercises, so I\\'m glad I resisted temptation on this occasion. I wrote full answers to all the Activities, followed up the links, and enjoyed formalising my own philosophy. It has been good to realise I actually do have a philosophy, one which satisfies me! I fully intend to do more courses in the same way, i.e. untutored. If I feel the need, I could always repeat them on a tutored basis later. I liked the way the material was presented, particularly the even-handed tone where conflicting views were explained. Also liked the freedom to work at my own pace so there was no external pressure. (I\\'m in the process of enrolling for the Left, Right or Centre, Introduction to Politics course, and may well follow that with a couple of other courses. So, many thanks to your organisation for making them available. By the way, I\\'m a 63 year old woman, living in England. I belong to our local U3A and have become a keen table tennis player with them, plus doing German conversation classes and drama. Not really enough days in the week for everything I want to do!)

I found the course very interesting and I now look at issues differently. Living 70 kilometres from the closest largest town and being able to do this course on line has been great for me. I will be doing other courses this way.

I found this an excellent course, thanks to the well-written, informative and appealing content, and Alistair’s engaging and motivating comments. But I thought that 8 weeks is a bit short; there’s so much more history to cover and many more more dilemmas to discuss. I would very much like to follow a similar course on ‘Eastern Philosophy’. And what about starting a "Philosopher’s Forum" on the U3A Online Members Discussion Board? Now, that would be great!

As the title of the course indicates, it is only an ‘introduction’ to Western philosophy - a very light brushstroke across a vary large subject. However, the course is well-written and provides enough links and ideas to allow students to investigate as much or as little as they choose. Having a course leader adds an extra dimension to the course and Alistair Pringle provided excellent explanations and insight into the issues raised throughout the course. I thoroughly recommend the course.
