Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Overall, the course load is manageable. I was only taking two courses total, however- and I was doing it all strictly online. The material presented me with knowledge I did not otherwise have, and I was constantly required to learn more. I did struggle a bit on the quizzes though, despite taking thorough notes off of the textbook.
The highlights, well I figured out I wanted to get a Ph.D. in genetics! If you put in the effort, this class really gives you the layout where necessary, and more in-depth details when applicable to the subjects of the week. It keeps things interesting and interactive, and at a pace that reminds you to learn.

Advice for students:
I would say, never wait too late to do a quiz. That is how you do poorly on the. Also, don't just go through the notes to get assignments done- there is truly important stuff in there. While the material can be difficult and seem of impossible magnitude sometimes, don’t give up and don’t put it off.
