This course teaches you how to use Galaxy, an interface with a bunch of tools to perform genomics analysis. But be warned, this course assumes that you are a seasoned biologist.
There are some examples of how to use the tools to do basic analysis in the lectures but not a word about why you'd do it and what the results mean.
The project is a nightmare. There's absolutely no guidance and no support from the staff. There's nothing in the lectures to explain what you need to do and how.
Basically, your job is to search the web for a workflow corresponding to the problem and try to reproduce it if you're lucky enough to get the tools working without bugs and unexpected errors.
Grading your peers is almost as difficult as completing the project itself since no two students end up with the same answers and we're not even told what the expected results are.
The timing is also bad. You're expected to finish this project on week 3 (there are 4), which is much too early.
All in all, that has been my worst MOOC experience (by far). This was the first session though so let's hope that the staff will work to improve the course because as it is now, I wouldn't recommend it at all.
