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.

It is really basic course, I expected much more even if this is offered only for $29.. (the cheapest course in the specialisation)

Having an instructor narrate is extremely important in a course. The robot that is narrating makes the videos unwatchable.

Completely useless. Just a number of boring videos of what you may possibly learn in Data Science Specialization.

I've taken a class in R. Half the quiz answers are wrong and is really overall pointless as a course.

The course contains almost no valuable information. It is not required to spend 4 weeks for it.

It is unbelievable how one can learn with this boring automatic course. I can not stand it!

It's a course which is designed to preview the other courses. It could easily be eliminated

It's boring. The robot's voice is annoying that's why I can't focus on the lesson per se.

I just made me install R, R Studio and a repo on Git. Thats it.

Too compact and short. Should be integrated to other courses.

Terribly run waste of money! Better off going to Data Camp!

Synthesized voice is used instead of an instructor. Boring

I would like to report some major issues with the new interface.
1) We don't have access to the slides anymore. This is a major issues since some of the slides content important links. These links are not shown in the transcript (I've double checked).
2) When we try to download the videos, subtitles or transcript, the resulting file name is the same for all content of the same type. More specifically, all videos are named "index.mp4", all subtitle files are named "subtitles.vtt" and all transcript files are named "subtitle.txt". This makes it more difficult for the student to save the files. In the previous version I would only right-click and saved in the right directory. Now, I have to right click, type the right name (which could be long sometimes) and then save the file.
3) In the previous interface, it was possible to see all the threads we were subscribed to. It is no more the case. It is not a problem right now, because there is not a lot of posts, but in cases where the number of post increase, it will be a pain to go through the list of threads and find the ones of interest.
Please ignore the review for now, I couldn't submit my comments without reviewing the course.
More comments may follow later...

This is a recommended course for anyone serious with data science. It is highly accessible, especially for screen-reader users who may be comfortable taking lectures using text rather than videos. I was able to successfully complete assignments on my own without problems. However, the only setback I see with the course is its over-reliance on RStudio. While Rstudio is a great IDE for R programming, it is not yet fully accessible. So questions like, "Which quadrant is at the bottom right corner" are answered as a guess-work rather than full knowledge. I suggest that command-line options be considered as this is accessible for everyone. Thus, while the GUI option is left intact, there is need to also provide command-line alternative to accomplishing the same thing. Otherwise, this course is perhaps the best when it comes to introducing the concepts on data science.
