I quickly hacked together something this afternoon over a flat white in a hipster cafe here in Lyon. And lo and behold it worked. Then I extended the functionality to also show minutes and seconds of unwatched video - as well as total overall counters for the entire course. Now each lesson heading reads "Lesson N - Name [time remaining/total time]" instead of just "Lesson N - Name". (The gist of it.)
Having done that I wondered how difficult it would be to make it into a Chrome extension that would just automagically run this script on all my, and maybe other's, Coursera video listings. That (seems to have gone|went) fairly well and the extension can be installed from here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/coursera-video-time-summa/gncpkgpieinlhlcemphffhkleahblekl
