peer review

Since assessments are peer reviewed, I do not see the motivation of my peers to come back and grade me again - which means I cannot complete the course on time despite, being on time with all assignments.

Good video's, relevant quizes and peer review essays.

They basically consist of scientific articles peer reviews.

Maybe this is the cause why they still my work?About peer reviewing – this is not my first course on Coursera and I know, that 5 peer reviews to complete the assignment is a lot (usually 3 is enough).

Peer review system is good.

The assignments were thought provoking, the peer review guidelines clear and precise.

The staff have put in a lot of effort in creating questions and assignments which really test your understanding and knowledge with a clever marking system which always works out to give you a fair mark even when the assignments are peer reviewed.
