Extremely well curated content, to get a broad grip of the overall concepts, in a perfect set of slides, without too much detail or distraction. Five Starts for the content and diagrams.

The course authors took time to share their experience with us learners. The topics where short enough to cover the materials without losing interest. The screencasts were also helpful.
