Great course! I will most likely continue to take this series of courses! The professors/teachers are great, and can help when needed. The courses are simple and easy to use. Overall, great course!

Excellent course material and good learner participation. I think a stronger instructor presence will round it off nicely (even if only in the forums). Great presentation Mr Grimm!

I like that this course starts from the very basics. It can be difficult to jump into a subject with which you are not at all familiar. The resources mentioned in this course were also very helpful. The only thing I would suggest is that the spoken content does not always match the content that appears on the screen during the video lectures.
