Thank you. I am happy that edX will host the course and make it possible to offer it with manageable time demands on my part.

Very glad to see it on EdX. I have taken several online courses and this is the best by far.

Some feedback: I see on EdX it's estimated to be about 10 hours per week. This is a good estimate for a well-prepared graduate student at a top school like Caltech. However, for an average working professional, I would estimate it to at least around 15-20 hours per week at peak.

Thank you for the input. We based the 10 hours per week on some feedback, albeit limited. What is the average number of hours per week from your point of view?

I believe 15 hours on average is a good conservative estimate, in the sense that if a student can ensure that they have 15 hours a week consistently then they can have a reasonable confidence of being able to keep up.

Thanks for the input. I will mention the question of hours in my email to the class next week.
