The lessons are well structured to favour learning of OpenSees' basic notions. It might be even more useful to supplement the lessons with the deepening of some examples of the OpenSees Wiki. Anyway, good job

As far as I'm aware there's no comparable course in the market for OpenSees. It walks the users from the basic knowledge to the advanced material with the simple and understandable examples, however it shouldn't be expected that the course content is always easy, it needs effort to master. I would watch this course several times., as I each time I will learn more.
