This course is heavily weighted towards essays (30% of the mark) and uses an AI computer to grade the essays that in my opinion is grossly unfair. You are probably being matched to a standard essay which punishes creativity or novel thinking. Students complained to no avail. So you spend hours putting your heart and soul into writing an essay only to get an insulting mark from a computer. In my opinion this is ridiculous and demotivating. In the end the whole thing is a waste of time cause you don't even get an explanation of why the computer gave you a crappy mark. No one knows so there is no learning from mistakes other than learn to regurgitate the lectures as much as possible because computer marking systems reward regurgitation over independent thought.
