It is extremely inconvenient that I am unable to move between courses at my own pace. I have finished one course and would like to move on in the SSCP program, but I am unable to.

Based on the Week 6 Essay section soley, which I found immensely frustating and frankly pointless. I did not pay good money for a course to interpret the answers of other candidates, or second guess the vagueness of the english language as demonstrated by the person setting the questions. My time is precious.
The language used in the questions was vague and from the 2 essays I marked this was proven correct. Completely open to interpretation. The scenario given was itself pointless, becuase one the answer basically implied provde a dump of all controls. The answer to another can only have been on the basis of some assumption in the question setters mind and you had a 50/50 chance of guessing it right
The approach is, in my view, a lazy cop-out on the part of Coursera / ISC. Multi-choice is far better for online course where there is no instructor in the room to ask questons or seek clarity.
In addition there is no way to contact anyone in Coursera. Coursera is faceless.
Out of date. There is a book that they reference that isn't given. Spelling mistakes on quizzes. The moving background behind the instructor is very distracting. There isn't much instruction given for the assignment in week six and it seems that none of the staff/instructors ever respond to questions.
