Funny… i had taken your point when i thought there was a suggestion that perhaps this one was not structured enough. I’m now thinking that perhaps the addition of 6 mandatory discussions (every two weeks) on general topics of interest to the whole course might have helped focus our discussions a little for an introductory course. This might not be needed in the follow up courses, but could provide added guidance to those unfamiliar with the constant use of their own personal opinions towards the work of fellow students
