The instructor guaranteed that there would be no lies about QM, that there would be no over-simplifications, and he lived up to that guarantee. This course is not the usual mathematical, bra-ket approach. Instead, it takes a physical approach. Magnetic and light phenomena are discussed, mostly in the context of the two-slit experiment. The math content is not at all difficult yet it employs the Feynman approach of looking at all the ways that an outcome can occur and then combining them coherently, squaring the length, and getting a probability for the event. The subtleties of how the presence/absence/partial presence of which-way info affects the analysis of outcomes and probabilities is treated in an accurate yet intuitive way. The course clearly explains quite sophisticated QM phenomena while still using elementary ideas. A remarkable feat!

This course is awesome, especially if you know nothing about QM or have a trouble to understand some parts. It gives you a nice introduction and motivation to study more about the subject.

It gives you a nice introduction and motivation to study more about the subject. Excellent visualisations making difficult experiments or unintuitive topics perfectly clear and carefully chosen content. Also I liked the part where different references to movies or music were mentioned, making this course more personal, unlike other ones I took. And what I liked the most was an awesome professor, who really took care to explain any difficulty in discussion forum.
