Do you know what's wrong with it?

In other words, the problem isn't really the subject, but the lack of structure and the instructor not making the subject interesting..

There is another tug of war. Many students want experts in their field to teach them (research led teaching). The problem is that research focussed academics make terrible teachers and course designers . Education focused academics can create engaging classes but the good students don't feel they get their money's worth from getting somebody who speaks to lecture slides.
