Excellent quality content! It's a great introductory course that really gets you interested in Data Science. I would highly recommend it to anyone curious in learning about what Data Science is about.
Very learning experience, I am a beginner in DS, but the instructors in this course simplified the contents that made me I could easily understand, tools and materials were very helpful to start with.

The main points could have been communicated in much less time. For me, it was just something to get through before getting to the more substantial classes that follow.

This is just a bunch of grad students and professors giving their opinion on what Data Science is, it's not really a course so much as an undergrad youtube project.
par Steve O•
Intros are usually boring but this was quite good at giving the big picture and the need for human interaction. The IBM cloud "service" leaves much to be desired.
par Yael L•
this is a promotional course with a lot of buzzwords and zero content. could have been summed up in 2 5min videos. shame on wasting students time and effort.
par Stefanie G•
I thought the course would give a more practical introduction of Data Science. This was more about understanding what it is and how it is applied in theory.

CONTENT WAS GOOD , BUT IBM CLOUD WAS VERY COMPLICATED. WAS NOT ABLE TO PROCEED FDURTHER INTO THE COURSE. KINDLY ELABORATE MORE ON PAID AND LITE SERVICES.

only general information, quiz with unnecessary questions, at least I know that the more bathrooms the higher price can be earned by selling a house :)
The course is mostly introductory and very basic. I think it could be helpful if you have never had any contact with the Data Science idea.

The first part is great but the second part goes super crazy technical and is impossible to keep up without a computer science background.
par Daniel G•
Not necessary in my opinion, have very little viable information and trying to promote the subject by creating unrealistic expectations.
par Valentin B•
Most videos are are very very basic. It seems like an introduction to the introduction. I hope it will go faster in the next courses.
par Ana S•
The course is motivational, but it is long and nothing practical is learned. Also the week 3 grading part doesn't make much sense.
par Lizzy B•
Very (too) general intro to DS
Questions in tests are often irrelevant and somethimes the answers are just plain wrong
par Sophie L C H•
I did not like the readings. The font was small and the storytelling not so creative and comprehensive. i did like some videos.
par Xiaohan W•
Good way for beginners to decide if they want to do data science as a career, but poorly designed questions and grading system.
par Ross Q•
An introductory course light on information best suited for those who have not had any formal education beyond high school.
par Zuzanna c•
I believe this course was very long for what it is. I believe it could have been narrowed down to one video of 20 minutes.
I didn't expect this style of lecture. Still to be convinced. Mostly interviews. I think the approach should be changed.
par Bryan R•
This probably should have been integrated into Module 2. As a stand-alone it is lacking in much in the way of content.
par Bernardo M B•
Unnecessarily long, although the content is interesting. Quizzes and assignments are not really engaging or too easy
par ozan c o•
There is not much I have learned. Videos were not very informative; text provided in the courser were better off.
par Nathan E•
It was a decent overview of the subject, but I didn't feel like there was a whole lot that wasn't already obvious.
par Chiara P M•
not that helpful and a bit boring to do the assign, but overall a nice overview f you know zero about data science
par Avery W S•
Doesn't cover any real material, you can move fast through the course, but I found it to be a waste of my time.
par Nicolas C•
Too many videos, very little information and things to apply. I hope the next courses are richer in content.
