An interesting experiment. I found the discussions with other students more engaging than the teaching material. I found it difficult to find a good deal of the learning material. Some of it was hidden right down the bottom of the web page - therefore a lot of scrolling necessary. I completed the course. If it runs again I may take another look.

It's a nice course, with a nice content, and you can feel that a lot of passion was put into it, but it's missing the guidance a professional lecture should have, it's not academic level. writing that, i wish to thanks the people created this course, and hope for a better future versions of it.

The worst MOOC I have taken. The instructors provide very little guidance about each play. It uses a "constructivist" philosophy where you create your own view of each play. As for orgnaization, it is terrible. There is lot's of discussion (I'm told) in at least 3 places -- the Coursera discussion forum (which was excellent, but little used compared to 2 or more alternative discussion sites the instructor set up -- a twitter @ site and a twitter # site) -- but I was never able to find all the discussions, even with some direction from the instructor. I have taken many Shakespeare courses, and had many live discussions with fellow students without much guidance (Meetup group meetings), and learned much more from them than this course. I dropped it halfway through.
