I've taken 3 so far. The quality varies greatly. One of the courses even had a premium stream (ie. if you pay money then you can access better, more user-friendly materal). In another course, there were silly errors in the coursera software itself. The third course has been fantastic and is really well thought out.

I find it interesting how some people in the discussion forums of a couple of courses I have taken have gone out of their way to defend some of the poor quality because the course is "free". I'm curious what people here think about it. When it comes to free eduction is it wrong to complain about poor quality?
