Very informative and eye opening. As long as you keep an open mind and fresh perspective, you will definitely learn a lot. In fact, it might even change a person's philosophy and teaching philosophy.
Thanks a lot Coursera! Appreciation Commonwealth Education Trust. Thank you dear Professor John MacBeath and everybody contributing to the development and running this wonderful experience for us.

I reckon that the tutorials are very dense. On the other hand, the essays are too extended to be also clear.

Good info but kind of dry

This was really disappointing.
There is almost no connection between the experience of the lectures (and that's all the videos are - lectures that track a PowerPoint presentation) and the assignments, quizzes, etc. Reference and source materials are frequently mentioned in passing, but there is no comprehensive list of works cited anywhere. The assignments are often vaguely described and, in more than one case, were described entirely differently in different places.
I have nothing good to say about this experience. You're watching a fundamentally disconnected series of mostly ad-hoc discussions of vague concepts. A simple list of books to read would be much more valuable.
This is by far the worst MOOC I've taken, from any source, in any discipline. The fact that it actually costs money simply adds to the pain.

ZERO! A BIG ZERO! AN OLD PROFESSOR JUST KNOWS TO TALK. HE TALKS, TALKS AND TALKS. NOTHING INTERESTING! HE KNOWS SOMETHING BUT HE DOESN'T KNOW THE WAY OF GIVING IT. BOOOOOOOOORING!

It was really boring, hard to keep watching the videos and doing the activities. There was some stuff that could be interesting but you can find it somewhere else.
