Improvement Opportunities

Although the results are very good, some opportunities for improvement were noted from the comments.

Participants are pleased with the content and objectivity of this certified art history online course . They also highlight the author’s availability to respond to requests and follow-up the forum. In general the course was an added value for the participants.

Suggestions for improvement are given concerning a larger number of practical examples (although the course contains several examples of applying the analysis method). They also refer that further analysis of symbology would be useful. Improvements to text editing in the lessons are also suggested.

We can thus say that opportunities for improvement lie in the field of editing and more examples.

Our certified online courses are always open for revisions and new content. We are therefore working to progressively modernize the graphical aspect of the course and to insert new examples of analysis and new research ideas.


This online art history course aims to lay the foundation for the art analysis , focusing more directly on painting, but also exploring the analysis of sculpture and architecture.
