This was an online course. Lecture time was for discussions, but they're not mandatory. Lecture quizzes consisted of 2 easy T/F questions that you can get from reading the lecture slides. I read and memorized the textbook readings and slides (didn't watch lecture videos) and got 96%. There were 3 10 min "quizzes" with 20 T/F worth 17.5% each. Group assignments (w/15 people) worth 45% of final grade (10 PP slides on a chosen topic from the course, an accompanying review paper and peer review on the other group's slides). I felt like they graded pretty lax on the group assignments
