They were a good review. Some of the quiz answers changed between attempts which I like because you have to understand not just remember the answer. I was less than impressed with the two peer graded exercises. Maybe because it was a short course, but they were "what do you want to learn" and "show you learned something." Something about the class felt off. I'm not sure if it was because it isn't a technical class. Or because it was so short. I feel like there could have been an opportunity to apply some of the techniques. Like chunking or spaced repetition to actually learn the materials for the class.

Terry Sejnowaki sometimes sounds stressed out but Barbara Oakley is so reassuring in her manner of speaking that one wants to learn so many things after hearing her!
