I just posted my review of Wharton’s Intro to Financial Accounting Coursera course under the Curriculum section of this site. For the record, I did complete this course in its entirety. I watched every video, laughed at (or rolled my eyes at) every Accounting joke or pun, and got to know my virtual classmates and their crushes. (Note, for those of you reading this that didn’t take the course, please ignore the previous sentence).
Fellow Accounting Courserians – what did you think??
For those of you out there that were in this course with me, what did you think of it? What did you think of Prof. Bushee? What did you think of the virtual students, the exams, or anything else? I’d love it if you would read my review and let me know what you think. Write your thoughts in the comments section below the page, so we can all add our two cents/pence/øre/etc.
Future Accounting Courserians – take this class!
For those of you who didn’t take Intro to Financial Accounting this time, stay tuned to Coursera because I think it will be offered again soon. In his final “goodbye” video, Prof. Bushee said that he is going to work on refining and improving the content of this class and that he intends to offer it again in the future. He also mentioned that there might be a cheap textbook to accompany it, so be on the lookout for that as well. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to take this class – my advice is to take it!
