Great first introduction into Ableton. Very clear and structured unlike a lot of the free tutorials out there. I would love to see a part 2 of this course that goes into more advanced topics.
I'm now taking this course a second time because it is so absolutely helpful and has really given me a free and friendly place to learn how to use Ableton and get started on music production!
Unlike to the other Berklee courses (I normally find them really good), this course was not useful. Week 1 and 2 do scratch the surface of some Ableton topics, too fast and forgetting all the necessary details. All instructions were just done random clicking, nothing musical. Often she did not even let us hear what she did. Nothing is properly explained.
The quizzes were too easy and the peer review assignments were all three weeks the same.
Week 3 is totally useless and suddenly only explains advanced stuff not available in Ableton Intro, or explains how to google.
Finally, this course requires (only for the assignments) to install Blend, create a user account there, and submit all your assignments to the Blend open online collaboration platform. Available for the whole world. This is totally irrelevant for this course and many students have technical problems with this. This can for example be seen the forum (BTW: the discussion forum questions are unanswered by Technical Assistents - normally, for Berklee courses, also that is much better)
So, in my opinion, this course should be redone completely.

"Was" a good course -- four years ago. Outdated. Ghost town course. Free on YouTube now via Berkeley.
You're better off skimming through the ableton manual and using the search function to get the answers you want.

Super-annoying voice, lack of explaining many details, moving too fast - Ableton Live has a far better self tuition options.
