Section 4: Unit 4: Hieroglyphics
Text
 We see the alphabet as the basics of all writing and language speaking. For the Egyptians, the alphabet was the written hieroglyphs that represented, or "spelled out" the other words that couldn't be represented by other characters.   Vowels were used in the spoken language, but weren't written in…
Text
 So we all know how the English alphabet works. The letters that make up the alphabet come together to form words which come together with other words to a sentnce, which eventually makes a paragraph and then makes whatever it's supposed to make. In the Egyptian alphabet, there are more than 2000 ch…
Text
 Bilaterals simplify the Egyptian Language by far. A bilateral is the hieroglyphs combination of two different characters and their sounds to make a whole new hieroglyph with the same sounds of the previous two hieroglyphs. For instance, to make the sound " hen" in Hieroglyphics, they would take the…

 Determinatives aren't representations of sounds, but more like words that provide key clues to helping solve the picture puzzle. For instance the following rebus can be interpreted as several different possible meanings.                                                                              …

 The Egyptians has certain stadards of the writing. For instance, if the hieroglyphics faced left, then you read from left to right, but if the hieroglyphics faced to the right, then you read from left to right, as how English read today.                          If the Hieroglyphics were written on…

Instructor Biography

His Awesomeness Logan Smith , Instructor at Udemy

Hi, my name is Logan, I found Udemy after searching for a public platform to teach. Teaching is the best thing that has ever happened to me and I have a knack for it! I've learned over the past five years that online learning and distance education brings out the best in students, because without that facilitator to dictate what you have to do in traditional education students have to put forth their best foot. I believe that the teacher should also put their best foot forward too and give it all they have. Both students and teachers in the online education world understand each other, so that perfect bond creates a sense of education anywhere you go on the web handling online education. So my students are what keep me going, and I keep my students going. There's no other thing that really makes you feel more better about yourself than knowing that you helped answer someone's question or educated another 20 students on the cell theory who are know brighter and more intelligent students; the best part is that you never actually have been in the same room with those people. Anyway, I don't have that much experience, but it doesn't require experience to connect with students and answer their question.

I currently live in the Mobile, Alabama; the Gulf Coast beaches are my home! I'm looking toward going to Harvard and possibly obtaining a PhD in the Medical Sciences and becoming a Surgeon. I love Biology, the Medical Sciences, Environmental Science, and the Mathematics. 

  • Your universality and acceptance is what you feed into the world and forth; the world will then return to you! 
  • It's not what we're interested in or what we pursue, but how we pursue it; that's what makes us who we are!

    There were several spelling errors. Was this course created by a professional?

    • Joseph Mello

    Terrible

    This course is not worth taking. The audio is unlistenable. The materials and resources are not well planned out. I am looking for the control to disenroll from it.

    • Jim Thaitgui

    This course FAILS

    The implementation of this course is Janky! Perhaps the technology is not up to the task, or maybe a rework of the workflow is in order, but as it stands I recommend against taking this course.
