I entered the class with little background in global energy, and was interested as a survey class for investing purposes primarily (especially natural gas in US). There's a couple weeks of the lectures that are perfect for helping frame global energy flows and markets. For those weeks alone it met my expectations. There are quizzes each week and two short paper submissions that are peer reviewed. I learned a considerable amount simply researching sources for the 2 paper submissions. I did my short papers on coal demand, and rooftop solar, but other options are available on topics if those are uninteresting to you. What I liked: The survey/overview nature, particularly the section on BP global energy survey, and tradeoffs between coal, gas, nuclear, oil, and alternatives. Reserves, consumption, production. Also the geographic of energy sources informs geo-political events. What I didnt like: Weekly topics were a bit uneven in terms of...

Sometimes I felt like I was just googling to find reliable data sources because of the size of the subject matter.

I would release 2 types of certificates: one for people only taking quizzes and another one with distinction for people taking quizzes plus peers assessments. There isn't enough time for completing assessment especially for the peer assessment ones. Contents are good but they need to be distributed in more lectures and weeks.

I have taken both the edX and Coursera Energy 101 offerings prior to this. No previous energy background is actually required, but either would help. This course approaches the energy debate from a business/economic angle and as such is a complementary approach to either of the above courses. It discusses the various energy sectors and ends with an introduction to both business case analysis and analysis of political actors. A useful primer if you need to interact with business oriented management or corporates. It did have a heavy reliance on peer assessment, which caused the usual issues/tears towards the end.
