The course was OK, but unless you are passionate about the subject, there are better uses of your time. Actually, if you *are* passionate about the subject there are probably *much* better uses of your time. But it is a fairly painless introduction for the neophyte.
Be aware that the course is focused on management and governance issues of information security and not technical ones -- that is, there is no programming and no examination of specific vulnerabilities. It is a course for people who dream of becoming corporate Chief Information Security Officers. To each their own, I guess.
Finally, the lack of a certificate of completion is flat-out rude. The University of Washington is really shooting itself in the foot. It doesn't make Coursera look very good either.
