The course has a lot of potential, but some questions in the quizz are very ill posed, not clear, and ambiguous. I am surprised that this course has passed the usually high quality barriers of Coursera. The course would benefit greatly from well structured and clearly defined questions in the quizz. Either a little bit more text explaining what the questions is looking for or a short example.
