Indeed a great course which explains the agile methodology concepts from theory to practical implementation with JIRA. And it will definitely help learners if they are using JIRA in the organization.

First 2 chapters were OK. Course should consider non-SW development as well like ITO, Cloud services.

Very basic course, most of the stuff you can learn with a quick google search. The videos itself are very low pace and focus mainly on how to use Jira on a very basic level. I had to listen to the videos to 1,5x speed for it to be at a normal listening level.

Nice introduction into Jira, very helpful. The voice/intonation of the trainer is a bit dull, robotic, I would prefer a more lively explanation/intonation. I like the introduction into Scrum and Kanban, always a nice catch-up for those who are not familiar with these agile frameworks. The course itself gave me a nice introduction into Jira. Ok, it's what you would expect from such a course, sometimes it's a bit boring to learn which menu item contains which feature. I'm planning to use this tool in our team within a few months. Actually, that was my main reason to apply for this course... ;-)

Probably very interesting when you don't know how to use JIRA... it does not provide so many tips on how it can be used to do better agile than with a paper and a pen, or with another tool (perhaps because JIRA is not so much better than other tools?).

Excellent course, complete and very well structured. The theory is taught through short and well-explained videos. Along with each video, one or two "labs" are provided to practice what you have learned. These "labs" are presented in written format, in a detailed and well-organized way. Jira Software is a very powerful tool, and I think this course is a great way to explore it to learn how to use it efficiently and optimally according to your team's workflow. This course also offers a very good introduction to the Agile approach to project management, with a good balance between concrete and clear theoretical development, together with practical examples that help to see the practical application of these concepts. I recommend this course to anyone who wants to get a solid foundation in the use of Jira Software and in the fundamental concepts of agile methodologies.

Course was very comprehensive to learn Agile and JIRA. Instructor was clear and able to explain all the aspects of the topic. But I would highly appreciate if the Week 4 module is up to date with the current version of JIRA. I understand that a word of precaution was set initially when we start the course. But it is very difficult to follow WEEK 4 since it is bit out dated. Otherwise Instructor did a good job in creating this course as there were more lab session to get hands on the JIRA application and understanding the Agile framework along with it.

Great course, thank you! The instructor puts out the material clearly and simply. The tasks and quizzes are very thoughtful and makes you digest the information even better. The course explains how to work with classic agile projects. However, even if you are going to work with next-gen projects only, some parts of the course like agile approach and kanban may be useful for you too.

It would be great to have a course about the best ways to use other Atlassian apps, like Confluence, for example.

A very well organised and well delivered course from Steve Byrnes. Content is excellent! The exercises contain clear step-by-step instruction that is easy to follow. I am going to Upgrade for the Certificate because of the value for money I got and to also to support the content provider and Coursera for the quality education.

Steve, well done and thank you for your generous sharing of knowledge. Can you please create a similar course for Confluence (if possible)?

I work for a company where non-IT departments are expected to run their projects in Jira. This has been an amazing beginners course to feel up to speed with how to set up my work in Jira with confidence!! It's a very well organized course. I am already recommending all my friends to do this course! I think it's great for learning the basisc of Jira and the skills gained here can be useful to set up project based work in any other task oriented application.

The course prepared me well for what was asked in the final, and the final covered all the basic usage of Atlassian Jira, including some more advanced functions I might not have ended up using if I hadn't taken the course but which make Jira more useful (such as JQL and filter saving.) I also completed the course feeling empowered to search out further advanced features as needed. A great crash course.

This is a good course for beginners and advanced users of Jira. / To jest naprawdę dobry kurs dla początkujących użytkowników jak i zaawansowanych. Znam z praktyki Scrum'a w oparciu o Jirę. W Kanbanie nie miałem wcześniej okazji pracować. Ten kurs pokazuje na przykładach obydwie metodologie oraz sposoby konfigurowania projektów i innych parametrów. Warto się przeklikać przez ten kurs ;)

Since I'm a beginner in Agile, I got the opportunity to get used to this tool in an effective method. The practical labs helped me to explore more and more practically, thus giving me a good hands-on experience of the tool. All the basic functions of the software were covered in this course, which I feel is quite important for a first time user. Thanks, Coursera!

Excelente curso, muy completo y detallado las practicas son muy bien orientadas para tener un conocimiento completo de todo lo visto durante los diferentes modulos y por ultimo las evaluaciones te permiten verificar tu grado de conocimiento adquirido en cada semana.

Me parece ademas de una gran metodologia y bastante agradable.

I really enjoyed taking this course. I have never used Jira before, and I strongly believe I have covered most of the basic day-to-day feautres. I was also not familiar with the agile methodologies, so the background information about them also helped out. Thank you!

The Class is an absolute must for someone who is new to agile and JIRA as a working tool. Even if you are experienced, it is always helpful to get a refresher. The instructor is Knowledgeable and delivers the lessons crisply and succinctly.

The labs are extremely helpful in getting acquainted with the course work and the different board styles.

The videos can be improved by using better signalling/arrowing to point out to what the locutor is highlighting in his presentation.

I am a person who has started a career in the field where Jira and Agile techniques are used on the dialy basis. I did not have any experience with Agile and Atlassian before and this course helped me a lot, especially while using Jira.

Great Course with hands-on projects. All labs were helpful in implementing the learnings. I don't just unleash the theory aspect of "AGILE" but even the practical aspect. Highly recommended. Kudos to the entire team of Atlassian!!

Different than some of the other offerings, slide deck presentations with a hands-on lab. Work at your own pace, for the most part. Straight forward information on setting up and using Jira for power users and beginning admins.

Course is very helpful for whoever did not ever work on JIRA, and very helpful for whoever working with tips and tricks.

Refreshment of Agile - Scrum topics and naming conventional and so.

very organized and easy to follow.

It is a nice combination of theory and practice. Also, I liked that there are questions during the videos as well. The explanation for each practice is easy to follow and it helps to get familiarized quite fast with Jira.

.This course was good, covering almost all topics from jira software. One can be able to create and modify basic projects using this jira software. Module tests are having good content for testing student's understanding.
