I have been meaning to write a review of this course for a long time. This course is actually very special to me as it was the first MOOC that I ever attended. It is also one of the first few courses that laid the foundation for Coursera. It is taught by Professor Andrew Ng, director of Stanford’s AI lab and co-founder of Coursera.
With ever increasing cost and demand for higher education, the importance of MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) is bound to grow. Sites such as Coursera, Edx, Udacity, Class2go offer hundreds of MOOCs from prestigious universities for free. It is now possible to get college credit for some MOOC classes.
