The Coursera ML class is nowhere near the Stanford-level class in terms of academic rigor.

That being said, several of my peers who didn't go to the school really appreciated it for its accessibility.

I think the expectation of that class is to render ML education accessible and palatable, not to train everyone at an elite level. As this field grows, I'm sure the needs of various parties would be filled to an extent.
