Yeah, in my case I know they don't know Haskell...

Still, I trust them to pick it up quickly, and understand type classes
(by analogy to interfaces in Java) and - they have to learn monads.
These are master students, they should be open to a challenge ...

NB: The course is declared "optional".
As a prerequisite, there is a (mandatory) course
in Principles of Programming Languages.
