Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This class was a great experience overall; the amount you learn from the online section will surprise you as you get familiar with the way that SEO, SEM, PPC & digital marketing principles drive our e-commerce economy. Professor Edsel is very wise & patient, as well as lenient to those that truly make an effort. For example, I came into the course nearly 3 weeks in & immediately got to work because I knew that I was behind on the syllabus. I did all of the assignments I possibly could even though they were late, wrote him a polite e-mail asking (more like begging, lol) him to accept my work for full credit. He replied within the hour that the work I'd done was great & that he had given me full credit. Can't ask for anything better than that!
Two words. Google. Adwords. During this course Edsel walks us through how to get our certification in Google Adwords, which is a free certification for students that sign-on to the program with their university e-mail address. Currently I run two blogs that I would like to get more popularity & traffic to in order to turn my hobby into passive income... needless to say, this class was the perfect recipe & after passing with an A+ & putting my new skills to work, I'm happy to say that each month there's a passive income stream coming my way just for doing what I love best: writing & motorcycles.

Advice for students:
You need to be able to keep up with the reading. There is a lot of it. If you are not a voracious reader & can not read for more than 2 hours straight per day I would not recommend the online section. The quizzes are detailed, but each of the exams are where things get tricky... especially if you didn't read the text.
