1. I feel that the instrictor did the videos in a rush then "a reading"

2. No codding!?

3. Various readings links no longer available

Brutal. Lazy course construction. It feels like somebody had to put together this course in only a couple of hours.

No lectures, and selected readings are often just promotional materials. Sone links are incorrect or broken. Typos, bad editing, and poor sentence structure in the quizzes make answering more difficult. "Select all that apply" should not have an "all of the above" option - and the other answers should not be wrong. This course is much weaker than the other weak courses in this stream.

Poor video content

This course needs to be reviewed. Some of the links are broken, the written instructions don't match the images (lab assignments), many of the quiz questions did not match the content covered, and the text contains errors. (For example, "Preventive service planning information" is listed as " Presentative service planning information". The potential for a useful course is there, but it needs some love and attention.

the course is terrible, barely touches the surface of any of the concepts it wants to cover, it really should be part of another course.

very short, very shallow

The material in this course is extremely important, but the structure of this course leaves a lot to be desired. All of the videos are extremely short - typically a minute or less - and I get the impression that the entire course is meant to be delivered in more of a structured face-to-face environment given how much emphasis there is on group discussion. I flagged numerous errors in the quizzes during the course, and a couple of the answers contradict project management materials in other sources such as the PMBOK.
