I am still trying to wrap my mind around the model. Why is a Course a
CreativeWork? I see that there are some properties in common like
"inLanguage" and "provider", but it seems cleaner to extend the domains for
these properties rather than trying to force a subclass that does not fit.

A couple other quick comments:

1. Is it worth adding a "prerequisiteCourse" property to list the
prerequisites for the given course?
2. Can we change "isCertificateAvailable" from a boolean to something with
a little more data? Maybe the type of certificate granted or the
institution granting the certificate?
