OMG is this professor boring. She seemed to be reading verbatim from her notes. Her voice never showed any excitement whatsoever and the material seemed really basic. Her face barely seemed to move. I watched using the Coursera Android App which doesn't have speed up. I'll try skipping to some topic that is more interesting, run it on double speed on my PC and see if it gets any better. Otherwise, I found a MOOC to prune from my list. OK, I tried that and it was still boring. University of Amsterdam has a MOOC just starting now that covers the same area, so hopefully that will be better.
