The rules for writing without niqqud say that you should write שישה. These rules are subtle, though, and not very well known by native speakers. There are cases where omitting the mater lectionis would look very strange, and other cases where it would look quite normal, and I'm not sure it's easy to see the rhyme and reason for each case. FWIW to my eyes writing ששה looks quite natural, and apparently also the authors/editors of this course.
