This was my favourite Coursera course I've done so far, and one of my favourite MOOCs overall. I'm not a "business school" type, but this course alone made me more enthused about making business fun! Sure, it may be a buzz topic, but Prof Werbach at least acknowledges when there may be some genuine lasting benefit to be had from using some of the concepts.
- typical weekly multi-choice quizzes (actually pretty decent for the genre). Sometimes the answers were a bit subjective, but it did encourage you to go back and look over the notes
- 3 longer written assignments, peer reviewed. These were probably the most valuable part of the course. Some people criticised the quality of peer review, but ultimately they were just trying to make you think about things a bit more. I only spent 0.5-1hr on each, but I was thinking about my answers over the week or 2 we had to do them.
I went in skeptical, and came out a convert (at least with some recognition of pluses and minuses). Thoroughly recommended.
