I like the course until it charged me the monthly fee after I had completed it. I logged it to figure out the reason and it seems it was the mandatory discussion/forums. Why are those mandatory?

Coursera is a virtual education revolution that provides opportunities to both the privileged and the underprivileged. The well-structured courses' administration and content quality are just outstanding. Discussion forums add a new dimension to the course by allowing learners to experience the ease of collaboration seen in a classroom while still learning. It's a unicorn among educational providers because it offers weekly modules that allow you to complete the course at your own pace. Thankyou Coursera!

A very well paced introductory course for beginners to familiarize them with the basic theory and working methodology of AWS. I am a CS major student and although I am familiar with programming, but when it comes to cloud, I knew nothing, and By finishing this course, I now have a rough idea on how the cloud architecture works. I would highly recommend this course to beginners who want a initial taste of what AWS is.

I love the pace of this course. I used to find AWS platform quite overwhelming but this course was so helpful in putting things into perspective. The simple diagrams, concise videos and useful tips provided in the course really made it an enjoyable experience. Besides the last lab being outdated, I was able to follow the course content without much hassle. I cannot recommend this content enough. Thank you so much!

Excellent course covering the core concepts of AWS. It covers Identity and Access Management, compute, networking, storage, databases, monitoring, load balancing and auto-scaling. Each video lecture is complemented with a short reading. It gives a good coverage of the essential concepts and the concepts are explained well.

An excellent introduction to AWS and Cloud Computing general. I used to have some idea of what AWS is, now the concept is crystal clear down to all the intricate details. I even gained some knowledge in other areas such as networking and security policies. Highly recommended for anyone starting off in Cloud Computing.

This course helps lots on my first step to understand AWS in high level and fundamental knowledges. If you are beginner of AWS, I strongly recommend it. Even though people has working experience of AWS, this couse it great to understand AWS concept, it's good for design and developing for the projects.

Intructors are good, some terminologies are highly technical for a newbie to understand, I already know about them so not a problem for me, networking was some interesting part I learned in this course. One will get all the basics he/she need to know of AWS so that they can move further on their own.

Having used AWS for a couple of years now, I learned enough to be effective. This course however filled numerous gaps and tied all that fragmented knowledge into a well rounded whole. More importantly, it gave me a good foundation to build upon with future courses and hands-on experience with AWS.

This course is very helpful for someone who wants to know the fundamental of AWS. Overall, the explanation is very clear, one thing that I want to mention that I prefer more videos instead of readings because readings can be found on AWS documentation. Still, this course is very good.

The simple and interactive explanation of the topics and the perfectly explained and thorough lab sessions were superb and made introduction to AWS cakewalk.

And kudos to the instructors for making all this sound so interesting and on point

Great explanation of the AWS services and a good refresher on general networking concepts and application architectures too. In the labs, if it doesn't work and you don't know why, just delete it all and recreate it FTW.
