Pretty easy, overall.
This class is great because it is extremely straight forward. The readings are very organized. It is also highly video content based. However, if you want to absorb the info via a transcript of the video, that is also an option. Discussion boards are very detailed but worth the read and discussion. If you watch the video's, you'll do just fine!
The course is very steeped in the founding fathers of psychologists, all the big ones. You're free to share your personal opinions on treatments discussed on the discussion board which is nice. It's not all based on readings, a lot of it is personal thoughts.

Advice for students:
I would say go for the transcript of the video's. It's not necessary to sit through an hour long video when you can spend 10 minutes reading the transcript. This will save a lot of time and its easy to stop and read rather than click pause and try and find your spot again.
