The course is a mixture of lectures from 10 different instructors of varying quality depending on the lecture/topic. For example, I recommend you skip the big data architecture part of this. Normally I give high provider score for Coursera MOOCs, but this is not like any Coursera MOOC I've ever taken. There are no graded assessments of any kind. This is more like a YouTube channel than a MOOC. There are maybe a dozen to 2 dozen messages on the discussions forums since they were opened a half year ago (i.e. they are dead). I'm just starting this course, so I will update this review as I learn more. However, my gut tells me to wait until they revise this course (supposedly in the Spring) to be more like a normal MOOC.
