A lot less impressive than I expected (given all the great reviews). There is a lot of good, checklist-style content within the course, which is tested by quizzes, but to my knowledge that's not what entrepreneurship is about. Green drops example after example of start-ups that made it throughout the course, but to me this is very outcomes-focused. Instead, I think it would have been better if Green covered the -processes- of innovation and entrepreneurship, for example teaching ways of thinking, or design as a process. Entrepreneurship is an art, not a science, but it is very much taught as if it were a science throughout the course. I also agree with other commenters that there is nothing innovative about this course or the way it's delivered. In short, Green does not practice what he preaches.

Fantastic Course. Barbara Oakley is engaging, the content is taught with humour, and overall the instructors practice what they preach by bothering to entertain the students. I enjoyed the peer assignments. They are not as clear as ones you would encounter in other courses, but the intention is so that you can be creative as you want to be, something that's often lacking in our education system. This is the best course I've taken to learn about learning.
