Coursera is the best,,, I’ve always thought going to school was all you need to acquire the knowledge you want... But now I no you can be home and acquire your knowledge through the help of coursera..

Pleased to learn from the Best Acadameias, some of the materials are outdated, and long videos make me lose focus on studies.

Sound quality was sometimes a bit bad. Sound was only left side of my speakers.

Content could be more up to date.
