This course does a great job of explaining keys, scales, and chords, in terms of the basic building blocks of tones, semi-tones, and scale patterns; without dumbing things down; and without going into the physics of sound. It's really just what I'd hoped it would be. The mooc also has very good production values with explanatory visuals synchronized to the verbal explanations. The quizzes are challenging but doable. Highly recommended.

Review all the subjects, improve all what I had before learnt, and surely learn more from the contents of this course, and motivate me to learn yet more after the course.

I'm in week 3 (of 5) of this and it is an excellent course. It's difficult and it moves at quite a pace and if you're a genuine beginner, you need to be prepared to do some reading outside the course (and then also perhaps accept that not everything will make sense immediately) but there is a great team teaching and great group of students. Very much recommended.
