If I could I would give this class negative stars. It was a bait and switch. The original class description no longer appears on the Coursera website. It was replaced with a course outline and you are required to pay if you want to take the quizzes and participate in discussions. This class is not a true MOOC because all of the content is not open to all of the students -- only the paying ones. It is impossible to complete this class without paying. It appears UC-Irvine is doing this with all of its Coursera classes.

Seems like there was very little effort to create the online course. Certainly, little effort to proofread. Slides are full of errors. Irony.
