How do these MOOCs or free online courses work?
MOOCs are designed for an online audience, teaching primarily through short (5-20 min.) pre recorded video lectures, that you watch on weekly schedule when convenient for you. They also have student discussion forums, homework/assignments, and online quizzes or exams.
I have completed the course with 100% final grade a couple of weeks ago. I took a liking to this course, from the very first lecture itself. The way the topic was presented, was fabulous. The use of Diagrams and Example code really helped to clear the concepts in my mind. The instructors have done a really good job in making sure that no doubts remain in the students mind. The discussion forum is also very lively and helpful. 5/5 for this course! Thank you IITBombayX! Happy Learning!
