As this was my very first MOOC experience, I can't compare it with other courses.
Overall, it was well balanced, between duration of videos, of weekly sessions and assignments/quizzes.
Since lots of new concepts were presented, it would have been nice to start each week with a summary of those presented so far. Of course, it was always possible to watch again the videos. Actually, I did it for a couple of them.
It's always nice to have something in writing to which one can refer during/after the course. I didn't have the time to take notes while listening to and understanding the presentations. I will thus be pleased to refer to Prof. Oakley's book, which I ordered.
I found the quizzes very easy when taken right after the weekly sessions. I would have been interested in taking a quiz a few days later, e.g. before starting a new session.
My score were high enough, but maybe it was the same with most students. I would have liked to know in which percentile I found myself.
The exchange forums were a bit disappointing, maybe because they were now compulsory. Time is limited for most people, I suppose.
This course seems to be intended mainly for university students. Fair enough. However, I would have like to see/discuss learning tips for professionals, whose time organization differs significantly. How about "Learning how to learn in the professionals' world"?
All the best,
