I'd only taken MOOCs which involved exams before, and any that involved more serious interaction like writing and uploading my own songs or recording improvs just proved too time consuming and I dropped out - but such was the communal feeling on the discussion groups and the support - that despite 3 weeks away from the course, I still managed to cram in the work at the end before the deadlines! It's fascinating and wide ranging - going from exams on the history of american comics to writing in depth analysis on a single page of a comic book, to writing and illustrating your own comic. It's pretty demanding at times (especially the final weekend in cramming for the last exam and making a 6 page comic with colour cover!) but like anything = the more effort you put in, the more reward you get out. Best MOOC I've ever done by far.
