In my humble opinion, the course was designed awfully. For instance, if the course is targeted at a general audience without experience in programming who wants to learn about ANALYZING data, is it really wise to begin the slide show video lectures (yuks) with explaining data types? I guess, most participants didn't want to become programmers and were totally confused. Wouldn't it be better to start with ostensive examples and then showing how to solve them with R?

The course was fun overall, I really liked it. I had read the books of Dan Ariely before and was curious to learn a bit more - I think I did. Still, I think it was too easy. Surely, reading all the papers was time-consuming, but in the end it was not difficult to complete the course. The only "unsafe" variable was the peer-review process because the guiding rubric was not specific enough in my humble opinion. Several students seemed to have made up their own criteria for grading. Anyway, thanks a lot!
