The content of the course is extremely inspiring. The videos as well as the excerpts of Ron's book provide rich insights and give valuable ideas. The assignments are very challenging - which is a good thiing :-) Where I see room for improvement: The interactive parts didn't really play out. It would have been fantastic to have live discussion that are live for the MOOC participants as well and allow for some active involvement. Some feedback from the course crew wouldn't have hurt, either. All in all, still an outstanding experience and a brilliant idea

Excellent! Inspiring! Life changing!

fun course and quite reflective. thanks.
