Prof Yaser, This course was really great. Sometimes we do not realize how we are able to touch people's lives we dont even know and help them.

This course came at a time when I really needed it. Without going into the details, I would like to thank you for bringing this course to us.

If possible, please continue to offer the course in this format. If the time demands are great, you could consider reducing the frequency.

In any case, it was a pleasure to take this course and thanks once again for it

Thank you kindly. I will take your suggestion to heart.

There are many excellent courses available from CalTech, MIT, Stanford, and now of course Coursera. It is an interesting time to see this change in education occurring. LFD was one of the best I have participated in and the fact that it is so exhausting for Yaser suggests some limitations in this new method of education. In any case this course is part of a new paradigm and helps to set the bar high. Thanks for the fantastic job done.

Thank you for offering this course once more. I had to drop out of the last session due to time constraints but was looking forward to attempting it again. It's sad that this is the last time it is being offered although I can appreciate the demands are great. So thanks once again for your efforts!

Will the videos stay on youtube? And the homework problems stay around?

It is often much easier to do when there are deadlines, forcing us to schedule time.

Will this course be offered again in the future? This course's twitter account said that this is the "last session". Does that mean that it won't be offered again?

It is indeed that last session. The videos and homework will continue to be available for self-paced learning.
