    CourseBuffet enables users to discover and compare online learning resources. The site lists more than 500 courses from various MOOC providers, and each course is assigned a difficulty level to help students move from easier to more difficult material. CourseBuffet’s point of difference lies in this Classification System. Every course is given a CourseBuffet subject and level number (similar to what is used by many American universities allowing users to find and compare similar courses from multiple providers. The site also has a rating system for each course and allows users to save and keep track of courses as well as share a link to their page.

    Observations
    • Can only access full list of courses by typing in a keyword in search tool
    • Course level only relevant if user is familiar with US course numbering system
    • Limited course information
    • No upcoming course notification system
    • As the site doesn't provide a full list of available courses, it is not possible to give the number of reviewed courses without searching for and going into each course individually. However, a check on some of the courses revealed very few ratings and reviews (limited to 0, 1 or 2 per course).
