An amazing course experience: very stimulating and enthusiastic course professor with deep knowledge of the subject. The course integrated short lectures by him and others, with up to the moment graphics, to bring the subject to life. I love the idea of a quick Teach Out like this based on something topical.

Simple but interesting and quite, quite timely.

very good

I thought the course, for being so short, was very informative and timely. Plenty of information was offered that students could follow up on if they so desired. So in terms of a teachout, that goal was met very successfully. Thank you.
