So far I have never joined a MOOC-lecture and I was suprised. Dr. Severance is really amazing and his way of teaching is unique.
The lectures are very clearly structured, as the book is. I took some 'real-life' lectures in python and VBA in my home university and it was pure catastrophy.
I really enjoyed that lecture and I am looking forward for the next course. So far I have only audited as I was not sure if I would like MOOCs but for future it will be fair do spend some money on it.
