I love the course. It goes deep into the foundations, and then finishes up with an actual lab where you learn by practice. I greatly benefited from it and feel I have achieved a milestone in big data.
First of all i would like to take this opportunity to thanks the instructors the course is well structured and explained the foundations with real world problems with easy to understand the concepts.

I'd recommend this course be taken as audit. Doesn't add specific value to your skill set! But, it's good to know :-)
By Sukanta C•
Very long lectures. Can be short with more examples. Felt too many jargons in the very beginning of the course
By Stefano F•
I was hoping for something more in depth but if you don't have any basic knowledge this course is right for you
By Damien G•
A lot of theory, at a quite slow rate. I hope we will go deeper in the following courses of the specialization.
By Sara M•
Great for basics, but needs to be updated. So much of the material was from 2013-2015 and cites "by 2020..."
By Krishan G•
Data presented are bit old. The newest data and trends will help specially for highly changing technologies.
By Pana A•
Too slow and broad for technical guys. Ok if you have really no idea what is big data or the concept behind
By Francisco J H•
It was very elementary and buisness oriented concepts. I was expecting more content on technical aspects.
By Byron F•
I suggest to have best support of the technical exercises. It is difficult if you do not have experience
By Li J•
thanks for the efforts of making this class, but I feel like the first 3/4 of the contents are tedious.
By Nesrine E•
Good introduction to big data. I would prefer that the hadoop lesson have more practical exercices;
By André F•
Should spend more time explaining the commands in hadoop and also have more practical exercises
By Emily C•
Good course, but peer-reviewed assignments make it difficult to learn from feedback.
By Gabriel E•
Good course if you do not have any idea about Big Data and the technology used.
By akhil r k•
It's a good introduction, but more optional hadoop exercises can be added.
By Fernando A S G•
A good summary about big data basics. Well structured. Very good course!
It would be good if more explanation and more examples are demonstrated.
By Patil S S S•
mostly everything was theoretical , much practical knowledge was needed
By Ankit R•
only theoretical knowledge, no practical use is shown in implementation
By Panumate C•
not enough technical contents and too easy
Anyway, thank you very much
By Deleted A•
The audio quality is so bad in the videos - it's really distracting.
By Amir K•
Only skims the surface of Big Data, even for an introduction course.
By Manik S•
Very easy. Videos are too slow, almost felt like a waste of time
By SUJANA C•
The classes could have been delivered by creating more interest.
By Swati T•
Was good foundational course. week 3 was most important for me
