Overall Rating
Dated material, had issues with Coursera and accessing the courses (they forgot to "turn them on"). Since by the time they figured out what was going on I had run out of time to attend the course asked for a refund (which the promotional materials included as an option) and was refused. Appealed to UC Irvine, they were rude and unsupportive.
