Wonderful, wonderful course on learning Python. The professors seem to like teaching the class (and really seem to like each other, which come across and actually makes the class even more enjoyable). The lessons and mini projects are perfectly calibrated to be challenging without being impossible -- after the first week I started each homework assignment saying "I DON"T KNOW HOW TO DO THIS!!", but then realized that they did indeed teach us everything we'd need to know to complete the assignment. I think I read there were something like 40,000 students taking the course. How do you grade 40,000 assignments in one week? You provide a very careful rubric and you do peer review. This is actually the toughest part of the class, because your peers are even less forgiving than the professors would be. All in all, I'm glad to be taking this course, and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn Python.
