Well, I'm basically done with Coursera although I'll carry on with the required work for the remaining four weeks. My main takeaway from this experiment is all by way of negative: by how badly the course is designed, I am more confident in the choices I have made in designing my own courses, and by how badly the discussion boards work, I am more impressed than ever at what good choices Google+ made in designing this community software. (Kudos to +Yonatan Zunger and all the rest for the design of Google+ as a shared space!)
