Good Explanations of Concepts and Nice Tests. I got a trilling experience in completing the peer Assignments with keen observation and Analyzing of Concepts learned.Thanq for your course very much.
Nice course to describe the traditional data modeling (RDBMS) as well as various semi-structured and un-structured data modeling and management of the systems (Batch and Streaming data processing)

Assignments were vague and hard to understand.
By Abhishek V•
Final assignment needed to be more clear
The course requires more practical part

This is a difficult subject to teach in an online introduction course, but this was assembled poorly and in need of a reboot. The lectures appear dated, lengthy, and lack much substance (outside of the final lecture). The final, peer graded assessment is a joke. 5/6 peer assignments I graded were the exact, word-for-word copied answers from an internet source. I received a failing review on my first submission with 0 explanation for the grades. I spent the majority of my time in this course not gaining knowledge about BDM, but overcoming bugs associated with running outdated Oracle VM and petitioning to get valid reviews of my final assessment. Easily the worst course taken so far on Coursera.

The course a materials are interesting and with significant value, same comment on the teachers, this would be perfect if the third party(the VM) is working fine, I can't say I'm happy about the course where the frustration is probably the right word describing my feeling right now, wish me luck for this week, I might pass might not ......

I think some real polish needs to be applied to the final assignment in this course. Some of the questions are not formatted well for the coursera web site.. and even on my macbook pro retina I am seeing text overrunning the text box. Really want to see UCSD represented better

Cannot finish Twitter activities as commands shown in the video apparently don´t work with the most recent pyhton version. I am very disappointed about it, since I am mostly focused on Twitter-related data.

The course does not add much knowledge if you came from computer science field. It touches the very basics. The exercises are simple, and the final project is very vague.
By Allyson D d L•
Very poor in practical content. The maximum you will see is to run done python scripts in the virtual machine; But you can also run in your personal PC.

I wish the courses are more project oriented. This is a very good introduction but, atleast you could provide some optional projects or some tasks.
By Otto E•
The content is good but this course needs an extensive update of the course material (labs and power point presentations).

I spent a lot of time setting up VM, as packages from python and libreoffice wasn't working

I have found this course less attractive to follow than other Big Data courses
By Riccardo P•
Barely an introduction, it could be somehow merged with the course #1
some concepts are too concisely explained to get on clearly

Too simple for a persona that's already in the BI industry

The cloudera vm used by the course requires login credentials (which students do not have) in order to correctly update and install the software using the commands given. Looking at the forum, there have been problems with software updates for quite some time, but as of Feb this year students are unable to do the updates needed outright per https://docs.cloudera.com/documentation/enterprise/release-notes/topics/cm-retrofit-auth-downloads.html. The short version, you will notice you are asked to use librasheets and will how no ability to do so.
The state of this course is unacceptable for anyone not familiar with troubleshooting LInux. The software is woefully outdated. I do not recommend this course until the instructors apply the needed updates. Coursera should probably remove this course, considering it's a paid service.
