Not a bad course, but a bit too high-brow for me.
Awesome course for anyone who is interested in the past, current and future state of higher education.
This course does an excellent job of creating a strong and engaged community. Discussion and sharing of information play major roles, and the focus is less on assignments and quizzes. There is only one project to complete for the certificate.
Very engaging course. The weekly activities were research projects focusing on major areas of study in this field. At the beginning of the following week, the instructors would discuss the data collected from each project. Rather than simply looking at case studies, we were all able to contribute to research that will help advance the field.
I wouldn't categorize this course really as "easy". There is quite a bit of reading, weekly quizzes, and five 400(ish) word essays. This is a great course if you want to know more about how the internet and Google are changing the world though. You will benefit more from this course if you purchase the books on the recommended reading list; some of the quiz questions will be difficult to answer without them.
