About the Course

Before you can have an Esport, you must have a video game to play and a game developer to design it. This course is dedicated to discussing game developers and their relationship with their respective Esport. The content will help you recognize the qualities a video game must have to become a successful Esport. We will examine the diagram demonstrating the various competitive structures commonly found in Esports. Esports, just like traditional sports, have their own professional organizations. These organizations strive to become successful businesses that win, make a profit, take care of their professional players, and attract a large audience. We will explore the factors that contribute to an Esports organization’s success, including branding, positioning, structuring the organization and funding sources....

Interesting overall - I think the peer assignment part it's a bit of a down-side. Having to wait for someone to review my submission without knowing when that'll happen.

I really like the content and the way how the course is structured. However, We are in 2021 and material is from 2017. I think the material could be renewed more often.

Decent Introductory Information

By Steve S

Material is good as far as it goes but it refers to 2017 as being in the future. I'm taking the course in 2021 so the material is five years old. There have been many developments in esports in the past five years that are not covered in the course. Instructor is listed as Stephane Muller but I have seen no content from him. All interviews were done by Chad Smeltz.

The content is good and I'm glad I took the course. The material is just dated and needs to be updated.

Superficial material.

The assignments are very confusing. They give you the rubric up front, but don't give you the actual criterion until you have finished the assignment and are ready to submit it. The assignments are supposedly peer reviewed, but if that's the case, some A-Hole failed me on the very first one. I know I didn't write anything ground breaking, but damn, give me enough points to pass. There is no way that paper was not good enough to move on. It was literally about what makes a good Esports game. Are you seriously telling me someone else, in my same position, read my paper and thought, "no, this isn't worth 7 out of 10 points to move on." Give me a break. Who the fuck does that? If you're paper makes sense and is comprehensible, I will absolutely give you 7 out of 10, if not more. What bullshit.

A lot of links without video explanation

Granted, this is a swiftly evolving space, but course materials are quickly outdated. More problematic is that the scoring system across the entire Esports specialization is a poor one: based on the math, any marks off in a peer review and one is likely to fail (less than 70%) and honest assessments across different language barriers on subjective reports make failing likely. It is hard to re-submit and get another review. This was my most frustrating experience on Coursera and more students seemed inclined to "game" their grades in a way that was due to frustration with poor course and grading construction. Several complained high-level work was not rewarded and also went un-reviewed for some time. It's an important specialization to include, but this is genuinely poorly done as it stands.
