I enjoyed this course. It was a beginners overview - which is what I needed. The lectures were interesting and easy to follow.
Wow! I signed up for this course on a whim and I'm addicted. I had no prior experience with MOOCs. Prof. Brown explains things so well and makes them interesting & understandable, even for the scientifically challenged. My challenge with the class was that the quizzes required more insight than I remembered. I will likely take it again.
I wasn't sure about taking this course because it is a subject I have no previous experience with. I was SO pleasantly surprised. Professor Archer was awesome. He had a knack for taking the science & making it simple. The format is unique from any other MOOC I've looked at. There is a quantitative path and an explainer path. The quant path, as you would expect, is the math & problem solving. The explainer path requires you to understand the concepts and without delving into the science or math. Both paths include weekly quizzes and a final project. You can earn a certificate by completing either path and a certificate with distinction for completing both paths.
