I view these two as complementary, this the START course holds a US perspective. (Would Coursera be brave enough to run ones from the eyes of Moscow or Tehran?). The course makes use of both a wealth of US wide experts as guest lecturers and active use of the University of Maryland START database. Some, but not all of this excellent content was spoiled by poor audio content, especially the second week, hence the mixed rating. I hope that this will be corrected the next time this is run, as the course presents a valuable insight into this topic, both as an introduction and complement to those already in the field

As a Risk Manager in the life insurance space I have some experience with the subject in terms of modeling catastrophic events- but certainly not as a theorist trying to intervene and stop radicals. The content was quite good in terms of explaining the how and why of radicalization and the presenters had definite expertise. The video and audio quality were quite poor. The forums were dominated by extreme political posts with little TA moderation to shut down the rants. 5 stars for content, -1 for delivery
