As a business student from Bangladesh who is aspiring to be a data analyst in near future, I love this course very much. The quizzes and assessments were the places to check how much I exactly learnt.
It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

The course needs to spend more time on how to init and push an item from RStudio to Git. I ended up having to watch a youtube video on how to do it. And all the comments show that this course did not prepare students how to do it.

The robot voice is a bother. If it is something experimental, the course should be free: students are human beings, not guinea pigs. There are better books and tutorials for installing and exploring the software.

This module should not be kept as a separate piece...The steps mentioned in the lectures does not properly cover what is asked in the assignments.The lecture content needs to improve to cover the assignment

I found this informative but you do not get much in terms of service. One of the quiz has a technical issue and I made a complaint weeks ago, but I still haven't gotten a response. Nor has it been fixed.
par Alessandro V•
It is too easy as a "university" course. It is much more like a pratictioner course. The final exam is ridiculous, really too easy.
It can be thought as a week course instead of a four week course.
par Eric L C•
Presentation great. Quizzes are idiotic. You take the quiz, it tells you that you got an answer wrong but does not tell you why most of the time -- so no chance to learn from your mistakes.
par Matt G•
Very little information for the cost. I was done with the whole course in a few hours. The review in the next course covered most of the same things. It certainly wasn't worth the price.
par David C J•
This was really basic information. It's not really a 4 week course. It takes several hours. The info is necessary, but it's sufficient as a single week of content for a larger course.
par Katherine C•
The robot voice makes it extremely difficult to fully understand the information presented. I found myself having to listen more than once to ensure I did not miss any information.
par Brendan L•
Very basic course, I was able to complete the 4 weeks on content in a weekend. I would recommend skipping this module and moving directly to the R Programming course.
par Allan P•
Very basic even for people with no DS background.
Issues with quiz having passed and results showing as failed. Inability to speed up and move on to next module
par F B•
I didn't like how I couldn't do some of the tasks because some steps were missing from videos and texts and there is no help in the course except the forum
par Javier R L G•
Too slow!! Why waiting for others to finalize and rate, enter enough dummy exercises so that the student can complete the course much sooner. Thanks.
par Francisco B P•
Very superficial knowledge. More pratical exercises are needed and daily problem examples. The use of github and his pratical purpose is not clear.
par Karan B•
Very average do not feel I learnt much. Still not sure if it's over or not since i've submitted a peer review assignment and cannot go any further.
par Karsten T•
This could probably be compressed into a single week of setup for the R Programming course. There isn't much in terms of substantive learning here.
par DIWAAN C C S•
Content is good but the thing to tell is that robots can't express actions, only humans can. So please change these videos as human lectures.
par OMEED R•
I mean, it's replicated in the next classes, and it has silly questions in the practice quizzes. It's not worth it. Just kill this.
par Augusto U•
Very basic introduction to Data Science. Seasoned programmer or other IT professionals are likely to find this course really weak.
par Luis C•
it is a good course but need to show more examples of R. the course should show more empirice examples of the functions of R.
par Harshini S•
A good intro to the tools required for a Data Scientist. However, could cover the usage of the terminal and Rstudio better.
par Yuan L•
Not that useful. There is no need for videos. The content can simply be presented in one single PDF in a time-saving way.
par Dimitry W•
Somewhat interesting to get an idea of what can be done with Git / Github, but I don't feel prepared to actually use it.
par Anna K•
Materials are getting out of date, especially with some of Github's new features. Instruction not clear in some lessons.
par Illan W•
Lectures are ridiculously boring, especially without having any video cam component to bring stimulation to the class.
