This course is very dummy-proof. As someone who never learns about computational thinking, this course helps me to understand the materials and the cases provided in a very simple way. Thank you!
though the peer review system might trouble you but it was a great learning experience reading others graphical organizers help me understand how there can be a different outlook to same problem
Excelent Course, it really opened my eyes to problem solving and it gave me a lot of interest regarding it, in the future i might study it again since i do have a lot to learn.

Overall course content is excellent. Assignments, Quizzes are all very good. Sound is not loud enough in the videos though. Forum is also very nice. Instructors are also fine.

Excellent course! It was very challenging, as well as, thought provoking and compelling. You will learn to solve problems using computational thinking.

I really enjoyed this course! It got me prepared to study for an entry into a career working with computers!!

Great course. Teach you with real world scenarios and examples to think better in modern ages.

Learned a new way to solve real-world problems. Should be a part of the study curriculum.

Good course yet not one of my favorite on Coursera. The examples were interesting and very applicable. I would have liked more assistance on the flow charting such as providing software like Visio to complete. Overall, well worth my time and learned solid computational principles that can be applied to other courses like AI or Machine Learning.

It was a little boring and instructors seem to drone on instead of making it a little bit interactive and interesting but it was not a bad course got to learn some good stuff and I hope they help me in my future endeavors.

Boring... should have animations to elaborate. Video duration could be reduced. The course should be chunked into smaller parts. No offense, but the video presenter should be energetic, dynamic and should have excitement in his voice - this is a new era of learning and recording real unenthusiastic professors in an online course is a failed strategy.
It is understandable that strategist in the university think it is best to create this courses with the professors who has knowledge in the domain, but knowledge is not enough these days.
OVERALL EXPERIENCE OF A COURSE is important, rather than reading the same old boring concepts by an unenthusiastic person. (Again no offense, it's just a feedback)

This course is not about solving problems for a specific language but it does teach you how to break down all the problems in life into lines of code that computers can solve in the way computers do. The course teaches you how to define a problem, break it down into different parts to make it easier to deal with, see if there's been a pattern to your problem before to apply it, abstract things away. Redundancy only keeps what needs to be solved to make the problem more transparent, although the duration is not long, it is still useful.

Good afternoon, I would like to deeply thank the University Of Michigan for this great opportunity to take this excellent course. I am immensely grateful to the Cursera Platform for offering us these excellent online course opportunities. Many thanks to all this team.
Thank you so much!

In my opinion,I l found out this course help me to design and plan on how to solve my problem.Although some problem cannot be solve by computational thinking,I really enjoy the way this course guide us on how to analyze our problem,decompose it into few sub-problems and remove any information that does not required.I hope I can bring this knowledge during my work in the future or maybe in my daily life.

This course presented a good framework for thinking through a complex problem. It is breaking ideas down in distinct steps. It was nice to get presentations from a variety of researchers to help illustrate the methods. The final discussion project with peer review provided useful feedback from other students, many from all parts of the world. This was a good learning experience.

From the training I gained a lot of experience on computational thinking actually how to use a computer to solve most human problems by the use of algorithm. I realized that human controls computer in order for the feedback given by the computer we can easily solve problem just behind whatever we thought while using computer. I do appreciate the training, thank you.

This course helped me to understand how to put a problem in logical terms so the computer can help me to solve it (the practical cases were very useful); it was a nice experience and, definetly, the abilities I've learned will help me to create algorithms with less struggles than before of taking this course.
By Ricardo L•
Very good course to learn the basics of how problems are solved through the use of computational logic. It is a common belief that computers are all about coding, but this course showed me that there is much more to problem-solving using computers than the code-side of it.

It was a fantastic opportunity for me to complete the prescribed course successfully. Overall, it was a unique course built on a unique idea, conceptual thought, and the course material was organized in such a way that learners could quickly grasp the concept.

It will be very helpful to me to find out solutions to various problems in a new way that is compatible with the computational process. The steps and processes I've learned through the course will help me a lot to find solutions more perfectly.

Es un curso de verdad fundamental para aprender a pensar de forma sistemática. Muy sencillo y por eso mismo muy práctico y relevante para el desarrollo profesional de alguien que quiera entrar en la revolución 4.0

This course allows us to take a complex problem, understand what the problem is and develop possible solutions. We can then present these solutions in a way that a computer, a human, or both, can understand.

This course is an eye opener to the world of using computational thinking to solving serious societal problems. I highly recommend for those interested in making positive changes and impacts in our world.

The course helped me develop problem thinking skills and I appreciate the real life examples used in teaching the course. They made understanding the concepts much easier.
