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.

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.

The content is very useful for beginners. Moreover, the material is very good, nevertheless the links target in PDFs cannot be reached.

While this course is introductory to a specialization, I believe there is more curriculum that should have been covered in this course.

Helpful set-up course. Not too meaty & definitely didn't take 4 weeks but smart to have everything set up before diggin into the rest.

Good beginner's course to start learning advance topics like R programming, etc. Very useful tools such as Git-hub were taught simply.

Very basic stuff - if you've ever done any coding before & have even a rudimentary knowledge of Git/Github - you can skip this course.

AI voiceover isn't the best but I understand why it's used. On the heavier sections it would mispronouce commands and go too quickly.

When describing steps to follow in R studio, or to link to Github, the video is impossible to follow, and the wirtten form is better.

Pretty basic (from a software developer perspective) but can see the utility for newcomers to programming and informatics in general!

This is my first data science class. I learned something about the tools, hopefully I will find them useful in the following classes.

Good, but would like a step by step walkthrough for MAC/Windows when setting up the final assignment to ensure everything is correct.

Good Introductory Class, all though I think some of the videos were too fast. Need to provide more explanation on some of the slides.

Nice overview of the conceptual ideas of Data Science and presentation of some practical tools needed to solve problems in the area.

Great Insight to data science. More Professional less theoretical. Little more in-depth in R would make course perfect for beginner.

very quick course just to get your workspace set up; if you are already familiar with github or rstudio, no need to check the videos

Things got a bit hazy when it came to adding the .md file to our data science repo on GitHub. Other than that I enjoyed the course.

it is quite informative but does have outdated sections. For example Git does not allow username / password authentication anymore

'How to use github' explaination was really good. I really like the idea of giving importance to questions rather than to the data.

This is generally speaking a good course. The only problem is that the instructions are sometimes not detailed enough for beginners

A great starting. Perfect for providing a foundation. However, instead of slideshow, a few real-time videos would have been better.

An essential introduction to the rest of the specialization program, but not too much information included in the course by itself.
