Gary Meade is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
I was really turned off to the point of exiting this course after watching a video describing green screen technology. It had me cringing so much that I really couldn't take the teachers seriously afterwards. Much of the content here has been over-simplified to the point of ridiculous, and while some of the instructors do a good job of teaching, others just inspire yawns. There are far better courses if you wish to learn programming than this one - look up Dr Chuck for one.
