Hi Everyone,

We've been reading up and responding to your inputs on Coursera forum, Facebook, Twitter, and email. Appreciate all your feedback. We're mostly doing this in the evenings and on weekends, so there may be a little time lag in responding to all. Here're some updates and clarifications:

1. Timetable:

There're a few different open online education platforms out there, and some platforms also accommodate different protocols by different universities. For Princeton's current participation on Coursera platform this semester, there is no letter grade or pass/fail certificate.

That means you can relax and enjoy the learning process at your own pace. You don't have to finish a particular homework or video by a fixed date, and we don't have to run authentication of student activity records. Midterm and Final exams will run in a similar spirit (more on the details of these exams later). But we do hope you will at some reasonable point in time finish each homework, then check with the standard solution, and then self-report your scores through the homework results surveys. This will help us adapt teaching style in the future.

2. Video:

Volume and playback sometimes have glitches because of the many types of hardware and software in many types of devices out there. We'll try to respond to your suggestions.

Videos are uploaded about 7 days before the corresponding classtime at Princeton. They're then captioned by Coursera so that non-English speaking audience can understand it, which usually finishes in several days' time.

3. Login on

Some have encountered difficulty in signing in using your coursera username and password, or finding exactly how to enter a blog/wiki entry. We'll resolve this technical issue soon, and then let you know with a clear and concise instruction.

Once that's done, on this website, there're two main activities for coursera students:

A. Wiki: this is textbook-quality contribution of knowledge creation/explanation by you. Some of your forum contributions have long-lasting value to future students, and will be great candidates for this Wiki contribution.

B. Blogs: this is archival-quality blogging of current affairs related to any of these 20 questions. Some of your current tweets/facebook posts can be expanded to become such a blog.

You'll also see "Flipped" tag on this website's top bar. That's a link to features just for Princeton students in our flipped classroom. You can ignore that.

4. GCH and Kudos Activities

As we get further into the course, we'll soon be announcing the first set of GCH and the first set of Kudos Activities. Stay tuned.

In fact, you can check out on our Facebook wall a fun voting exercise (takes 30 seconds to do), since Lecture 6 is about voting in a crowd. We're going to compare the different results of top 10 movies ranking, both in Princeton class and with coursera students.

5. Facebook study groups and Meetups

Many online and offline study groups have been established (as open groups, so you can readily join one without seeking permission):

you can see the upcoming Meetup with Mung. For example, Oct. 9 in Seattle, Oct. 10 in Vancouver, and Oct. 11 in Bay Area. We have a Groupon-like tipping rule: if there're 5 or more people signed for this event by the day before the event, we'll hold it. Otherwise we'll wait for a future opportunity. Take a look if you're in one of those three areas, and sign up if you're free.

6. Virtual Office Hour

We're working on a way to run large scale broadcasting with text or tweet feedback/question in real time. If it works out in our trial, we'll host virtual office hours on a regular basis in the course. Stay tuned.

That's it for now. If you're following the timetable (again, it's OK to have a little time lag, as long as you can make up for it later), you should have just finished the first 5 lectures, out of a total of 20 lectures. Get ready for the next 15!
