This is not a beginning overview of diabetes! These are researchers presenting their work, and it is geared to the upper undergrad or grad level student. Nevertheless, if you can slog through all the science, it is very interesting, and the forum discussions certainly were lively and informative. The quizzes were very easy as most were multiple choice with three answers, and you got three tries on them (thus I made it through the course ). The peer assessment was disappointing, as most students grading their peers did not really know what to look for.
