After the post about removing the homework tag I have a kind of related question.
I am active in the Scala category and its creator, Martin Odersky is giving a class on Coursera with something like 30'000 students. Obviously some questions end up on stackoverflow. Thus I would like to know what is the correct attitude regarding those questions.
For now I see two categories:
- people who just copy paste the question
- people who worked on the assignment but still have a real question, which is as valuable as a usual question in stackoverflow.
For now, those Coursera-related questions have negative scores when they look like they are from Coursera even if their content is good.
PS:Coursera's policy is to forbid putting solutions online.
