Prof. Koller did a great job communicating difficult material in an accessible manner. Thanks to her for starting Coursera and offering this advanced course so that we can all learn...Kudos!!
The course was deep, and well-taught. This is not a spoon-feeding course like some others. The only downside were some "mechanical" problems (e.g. code submission didn't work for me).

The course content is solid. The honours content is challenging and interesting. There's a couple of minor glitches that cause frustration in the PA's but nothing too earth-shattering. There's a lot of whining and whinging on the message boards, but take it with a grain of salt: the instructions to succeed in the programing assignments are complete and relatively simple, but you might have to dig around in lecture transcripts to put all the puzzle pieces together. The is GRADUATE LEVEL work, don't expect to be spoon-fed, and don't whine when you're not. I'd recommend the content to anyone. SO WHY ONLY 1 STAR? Because there is absolutely no support from TAs or Mentors anywhere. Nada. Zero. Zilch. They are asleep at the switch. If you expect any kind of interaction to expand your learning horizon then you will be sorely disappointed. I sure was. The lack of engagement from the TA/Mentor community takes what could have been a 5 star experience and drops it to zero. But I can't go that low, so 1 star it is.
Very rigid questions, very theoretical. Very poor instructor support. Content needs to be improved. Very disconnected approach.

very shallow explanation of important concepts
Lectures are awful.
