Great for the intermediate learner. You would find new terminologies in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The materials are easy to be understood and the teachers are communicative.

The content of the course is very interesting. I got disappointed, however, in peers' evaluation of other peers' assessments. Clearly, most of them do not take a good care of reading what is required when evaluating a assignment not even the assignment itself. I believe that every assignment should be rated by the teacher or mentors only.
