    I only saw the first couple of weeks, so if it changed later I'm sorry for being unfair. The course goes against the spirit of MOOC courses: the videos weren't designed for the course itself, but most seem to be actual classes filmed. So you don't feel like having a full course, but just a compilation of some class videos. Furthermore the topics were confusing and not very well motivated.
