The Executive Data Science Capstone was so much fun, while I was doing it I was really feeling like I am a data manager and managing the data science team in real life. So interesting it was.

What a great way to mimic real world decisions! This was a great experience and would highly recommend to others based on the practicality and applied situational thinking requirements.

The class was a little brief, but I really did enjoy the way it was presented. The real life situation, with videos, and a famous company made this hit close to home. I really enjoyed the "choose your own adventure" format of it as well. Unfortunately it was so brief, where the $49 price seemed a little high in comparison to the content that was available in the other sources in the Executive Specialization series. I also would have liked a longer or more in-depth scenario. Lastly, for any of the "wrong choices" that were chosen, a debrief "why" they were wrong would have also helped. Even though there is room for improvement (and thus a 4 star rating and not a 5), I really did enjoy it and found it to be a very enjoyable way to end the series.

Overall, very useful syllabi have been designed. I wish for more detailed, or at least less repetition of materials in videos and notes. Some of the terms have not been defined for me, so further research was necessary.

Good for introduction in Data Science Process

Quite easy to do it. I was expecting something a little bit more challenging.

It was great to see how does it work in real life. I wish there was more example and more challenging scenarios. I did enjoy it.

Great course - even for those with only a small amount of data analysis, this is very useful in explaining the bigger picturing of managing data

Good to get a formal overview of all the phases and ingredients of data science projects, without getting lost in the details.

Like this model of capstone, since it brought some situations of real-life data science projects. However, I found the duration of the capstone too short. I would have like the project to last longer and to introduce more cases.

By far, the best course in the specialization but yet too easy to complete.

Fun and real life problems, is easy but would be cool to make it longer and a situation in which real several problems are found.

Very good overview. I did the full data science course but I'm a senior manager, so this was nice to get some organization perspective. Some parts might be a challenge for some IT people, but if you want to manage big data projects, it's worth the effort.

Great concept. Perhaps a little bit too easy to complete :)

Capstone project was very interesting and engaging in its interactivity. It is simple but not trivial one.

Not difficult, but a cool way to test your knowledge.

Like the way the capstone project was design, also how the team is introduced and how the situations are moving forward.

The capstone tests your decision-making skills but ought to be a bit more challenging. Also, the 3 presentations the learner must assess have a few typos.

I expected a richer and longer project, but it was a good one.

Excellent emphasis of the collaborative effort required to execute data science successfully. However, an area of improvement is allowing for the slide decks to be visible as an objective assessment is not allowed without accessing and viewing the slide decks.

The videos and the interactive testing process was enjoyable but I thought that it was a little too easy and too short to measure the full extent of the knowledge acquired through the previous 4 courses. It should have been more elaborate and rigorous.

Well made simulation of leading a data science team at Zillow. Just wished we get better value for money as the whole course can be done in just 1 hour!

I find the method really cool, to simulate the real-life. It could have been a bit more difficult to really test my new acquired skills.
Nevertheless I enjoyed the set up and full training on Data Science for Executives
thanks for hosting!

very good, but too short, I really enjoyed it, but I thought that was only the intro

Fun. Challenging with gamification.
Maybe it's a little short.
I was expecting to put in a lot of work in this capstone maybe because I was expecting a more thorough, longer analysis challenge.
So a recommendation is:
In the same style, create more weeks where the challenges will increase.
