Best MOOC I've ever taken. If you want to know more about sociology and why people behave the way they do, this is the course to take. The instructor has written several books as well. His lectures were engaging and insightful (and funny)! If you're on the fence about this course, I implore you to take it. I knew nothing about the course going in, just watched the trailer however I owned (but have yet to read) one of his books. The quizzes and final were easy and the course was a joy to take!
I had a little knowledge of Python and computer language syntax. The professor is engaging and loves MOOCs. The class went slow and steady as an intro course should. The quizzes and final were representative of the coursework.
I have a little background in SQL, a database language. I finished 'the data scientists toolbox' and was looking forward to this course (as its a suggested pre-req) for this one. However it was much too hard for an introduction and the projects were way beyond the scope of the lectures. If you're looking to learn R in a self-paced format try Datacamp.
