Ok

The picture isn't good. It gets better but it's not good. Also at the beginning the teacher says a web address that he goes over during the class but it's not there anymore.

Production quality is the pits

Although the subject matter is interesting to me, and the professor is knowledgeable, the poor sound and illegible screen shots of the spreadsheets and the missing info on the website makes this course an embarassment for Columbia, I would think. You could not possibly do a worse job of converting a perfectly fine course to the web.
