Instructor knows his subject and explains everything clearly in the videos. The videos sometimes proceed too slowly and go for too long and could be condensed -- I often watched the videos at 2x speed because the slow pace was frustrating. There are many messy JavaScript and WebGL details (for example, working with arrays and vectors) that you have to learn, differences between web browsers that you have to be aware of, and very little feedback from the computer about problems with JavaScript or WebGL. So you need some previous experience or a lot of patience with working with these technologies. I eventually dropped the course whilst attempting an assignment because I found I was spending more time trying to solve strange JavaScript/WebGL problems than learning WebGL.
