TOP REVIEWS FROM COMMUNICATING DATA SCIENCE RESULTS
Too little people participated and long peer review time.
But the course content is good.
Great and useful first week about visualization, although I wish it would cover more material . The ethics and cloud computing felt somewhat incomplete, but useful as well.
The information from the last assignment is split into Forums and Tasks description. This is very easy to fix and not doing it shows passivity from the organizers
