Presentations and videos are goods, but are too short and not developed enough to really acquired that knowledge.

The same problem appears with concept checks and quizzes, some subjects are not presented in this lecture but required to complete the course.

The content is relevant, but the delivery is conventional, frontal, and at times not careful. The quiz tests are often too trivial to be a useful exercise. Grading by peers is an interesting idea, but unfortunately it does not happen in timely fashion.

The video material was high quality, but the exercises became very inconsistent and very badly planned. The tasks didn't help to assimilate the content of the lectures and the Excel templates provided were corrupted. That was very disappointing.

Feedback on assignment from peers is almost absent or mediocre. Makes it hard to improve on an assignment.

30 years running programs, up to five years @ $3M/yr. Only four units in I want to fire somebody. Material correlates very poorly with quizzes... about half the answers can not be found directly in the PMBOK or presentations. The assignments are a total load... info provided is completely insufficient to do the work. Cumulative and iterative building of project docs is difficult since the expectations for each type of assignment do not "nest" properly. For example, a 1120 hour project has 28+ items on the WBS. Now they want this resolved into a CPM diagram? Effort hours info is in nine categories, which are not well-correlated to anything and thus need to be spread laterally across functions. And still add up. Without software this is an all-day job, notwithstanding that it requires some judgement beyond scope of the class.
