My first online course as a student. The experience with the this course was so good that 2 years after that I am still actively following edX and I have attended over a dozen other courses. Contents and lectures were very clear and up-to-date and provided me with lots of new insights and information on a subject already quite familiar to me.

The course compacted a lot of diverse information and could probably been better organized over two courses. There were a variety a lecturers with different styles and quality. Some topics were well handled, others not so much and even promotional in nature like watching an industry ad. Overall it was a worthwhile course on important topics but they seriously messed up the grading in the end which was frustrating.

I was in search online for free educational programs for many months, but never found such a program. And now I found the great and valuable work done by edx.org. Am grateful for it.
