Great course. Difficult to apprehend sometimes as the Frequentist paradigm is learned first but once you get it, it is really amazing to see the believe update in action with data.
I like this course a lot. Explanations are clear and much of the (unnecessarily heavyweight) maths is glossed over. I particularly liked the sections on Bayesian model selection.

The information felt purely academic. I know we were show how professionals have used this type of analysis before, but those examples were way more advanced than the scope of this course. Moreover, the scope of the course was too broad. More information on how to model non-linear data would have been more valuable than this.

This course requires immediate review. It is incompatible with the others of this specialization. It is not intuitive, it relies heavily on dense mathematical formulas with no time for practice or memorization. The material presents errors and one of the R studios had bugs. It should be an specialization on its own.

The change of instructors negatively affected this class. The new instructors are nowhere near as good at explaining the data and tending to start talking about things without even explaining what they where to to use a lot of activations, which one would need to continually look up.

Very poor explanation in week 3, the new professor is not explaining the definitions or the use of them properly. Too many jargons.
Professor doesnt explain the use of prior predictive distribution and just introduces the formula without any consideration for explanation

No efforts on maintaining the quality of assignment. You will be hard or never to finish them.
Too much information concentrated in one course without clear elaboration. It should be separated to 2~3 courses.

The course lacks of explanation and it's very difficult to follow. It seems that the instructor just reads the slides without reasoning and explanation. Suggested reading materials are needed.
A huge leap from the other courses in the specialization, which are all extremely well-constructed. Terms are not introduced and explained properly, and the whole course seems very haphazard.

1St problem speed of teaching, also other students complained
2With such a speed, material was too condensed for such a broad subject
3Not sufficient explanations for a statistics beginner

This course is not well-presented. Lectures are unimaginative, and there isn't enough supporting material or readings.

Quizzes are not related to videos. There is very limited practice problems (the best way to learn math subjects).

I get really frustrated when the tutor doesn't explain lots of concept/symbols in the materials.....

The quality of teaching was drastically down as compared to other courses.

Unclear information, too vague, incomplete presentation of ideas.

becomes too much confusing at times.
