As a business student from Bangladesh who is aspiring to be a data analyst in near future, I love this course very much. The quizzes and assessments were the places to check how much I exactly learnt.

It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

Me pareció un curso bastante completo. Tuve algunas dificultades con el uso de Github pero aún así pude progresar.

I expected more but this is really just basics and this is little bit bored because of the AI was the instructor..

Well structured and easy to follow. Most importantly, the onus is placed on the student to explore and self-learn.

A simple introduction. Easy to cover very quickly, however important to understand the basics before progressing.

it introduces some very useful tools- such as version control with github, and the explanations are fairly clear.

You'll install 'R', 'R Studio'.

Will link R Studio with GitHUB

Will learn certain steps as introduction.

[That's it]

O curso é bom, mas achei a fala robotizada estranha e acho que a linguagem R está perdendo terreno para o Python.

As a beginner, it was very instructive. New concepts introduced built-up on previous ones as the course unfolded.

I think more info about git and other toolboxes would be interesting. It took 1 day to complete the whole course.

I wouldn't really call this a course, rather it's more like an introduction to the very basic tools of the trade.

Mucho contenido pero las explicaciones son difíciles de seguir en cuanto a instalación y manejo de los programas

Some of the dictation should be changed so that the computer says "for example" instead of "e.g."

(For example.)

The course was great. Wish there was more walk through general assignments to help you hands on with the tools.

Good starter, but could have been Week 1 of a separate class. The entire course took all of 2 hours to complete.

I thought that the course was too simple and basic. I think that it all could have been condensed into 2 weeks.

Great intro to the data science major, needs to be more detailed in my opinion in regards to the git bash part.

I would have liked if the Course content(course 1) was in more depth, but the overall experience was very good.

This course was kind of helpful. I could've used much more practice with importing data into R and with GitHub.

This is a good intro to programming so far. It feels like I'm building a solid base from which to understand R.

This is wonderful and a great course in which along with data science they thought concepts of Git and Github.
