A quick abstract:

Quote

The course titled "An Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python" just started on coursera. The course is eight weeks long and free to attend. It consists of video lectures, quizes and mini projects. There is also a forum to discuss things.

From their website:

Quote

This class is eight weeks long. For each week, you will watch two sets of videos (part a and part B) and then complete one quiz for each set. These quizzes are due on Tuesday/Thursday, respectively. The main task for each week is to complete a mini-project that is due on Saturday. You will then be asked to assess your peer's mini-projects on the following Sunday/Monday.
