Content was relevant. It could have been delivered in a more varied and engaging way. Different subject matter experts presenting on different topics. Accent very difficult to understand at times. Some of the assessment exercises focused on content that was barely covered while key elements seemed to get minimal focus at times. The level of plagiarism and copying evident in some of the peer-reviewed work was concerning.

I have taken the two start out due to the issues of assignment and grading. For the online course, assignment and peer grading may not be the best options and if the university re-look that aspects and stick to the online quizes to certify then it makes a great experience. Course content is good.

For an intermediate course I found the info too easy and lightweight. The longer the course takes the more it got fragmented and the host seems to loose enthusiasm over time. Videos snippets always follow same pattern.

I already did several courses, in loco and remote, about agile. Only one was really nice. Why not showing a quick theater of a day by day scrum team? Scenes of starting the day, receiving a new project, studying together, sprint planing, planing poker and a daily scrum. We don't need the review and retrospective because there are similar to any other way of dealing with project but It is crucial to see the things happening. Why not interview or show a quick activity of an scrum team? Ask gitlab, github, google, some of them will allow a quick recording of a generic activity. The lack of real world agile make this course really a dummy one.

The course material was vague and dilute. Questions frequently sought answers which were not provided by the course material. I felt incredibly unprepared for the assignments, owing to the poor instruction. A person would be using their time more wisely simply following a structured approach to learning about Agile through other web resources.

I didn't find the specialization and this course in particular useful. It has low quality videos, unstructured information, and doesn't give enough knowledge to start working.

Also, the last course of the specialization requires background in programming, otherwise you will not be able to complete the specialization.

The instructor never really used their industry experience to make the class unique. It was basically ready slides and memorizing vocab. Also, the instructor kept saying "he" when referring to software developers.

this course is just a repeat of all the information of the previous course of this specialization. The instructor shows no passion, he just read all the script, which can easily found anywhere on the internet. Moreover, the instructor read the script with a really boring voice, like he almost falls to asleep during the lecture, if anyone wants to pay for this course, I recommend just read the syllabus and find all the information on google, clearly more effective, and less time consuming than participate in this course. Coursera has many good and well build course, but not this course. Please consider carefully before pay for this poorly build course

The course material is very poor and most of the time the lecturer is just reading the slide. Not worth the money. Also, the last assignment grading process is ridiculous people are not providing reliable grades and such useless feedback.
