This is not quite as well-polished as the more viral SkillShare courses out there. The visual style is discordant throughout, and at times the messaging is repetitive. BUT! The content itself is excellent, and Mauricio knows his stuff. This is a thorough introduction to Agile project management for people who are either considering applying it to their own projects or are preparing to work somewhere with an Agile culture. I imagine the instructor is approaching this course as an Agile project in itself, so in some ways the course feels like an early release -- that is to say, I would not be surprised if later iterations feature more interesting and cohesive graphics and fewer asides and repetition. In all, I certainly recommend this course -- particularly video #10!
If you have an hour to spare, let's say the commute to and from work, download this, plug in and play. It's a sure way to get up to speed with Agile. I even smiled a few times!
