I've been comparing linear algebra courses being offered by the various MOOC websites and universities out there. Curious.com has been sponsoring a bunch of NPR ads, so I thought I'd look at what they have on offer for linear algebra.

So it turns out that Curious.com is kind of like YouTube, but you have to pay for it. Ie, you have to pay a subscription to access completely awful, unprofessional, unintelligible, boring, and useless videos where someone, who knows their credentials, in heavily accented english, write unintelligible equations on a computer white-board.

While there are valid caregivers and parents on this site, there are just too many opportunities for scams and unreliable information. We paid $79 for a Preferred+ background check which COMPLETELY MISSED a conviction that was easy searchable on our state's court case search database.

On another front, we saw reviews placed for caregivers that didn't make much sense, but we had no way of communicating with the reviewer and the caregiver didn't have any method of dealing with the bad review - and it sounds like the review came from one of those scams asking trying to get bank account information.

We wrote to Care.com to try to resolve both of these issues, but received nothing but automated messages back.
