I'm taking a graduate course online this semester, and have noticed a few things:
- Professor has assigned us a mid-term, a final, and a research paper as the coursework for the class. These are the only grades we will receive this semester from this course.
- Each week, he assigns us a chapter to read, and around 8-9 hours of videos that are supposed to serve as supplementary instruction.
- The videos are publicly posted YouTube videos from the textbook author, Coursera, and other online courses.
- He has not provided any of his own material for this course. No PowerPoints, no lectures, no notes, no study guide. Nothing of his own work.
At no point in the course description, or anything provided before registration did he indicate that the course would be structured like this.
Is it an issue that we're essentially taking an uncredited Coursera course for a grade and graduate credits?
