Quizzes: could be heavily improved. This course is like a box of chocolates: every week you get to know a few nice models. The quizzes and exams are used to extend the learning experience; they actually do require an understanding of the subject matter and bit of thought. The wide variety of models described, the examples given and the way the theory is explained is well executed. And, moreover people who think with lots of models outperform people who use only one. Because that's the other part, maybe there should be some assignment so we can work by ourselves some implications of the models. Contents: The presented models are well chosen and interesting.
The one, big, downside is -- it is all pure theory, the course is too easy, no challenges real ones , no programming assignments. This course is an excellent overview of various models used in the field of the social sciences. The models covered in this class provide a foundation for future social science classes, whether they be in economics, political science, business, or sociology.

I believe these were also always free but they offered a certificate as well. All in all the subject matter is quite easy.
