The design of the course is very Helpful and efficient. The course is well explained. The instructors are very clear and master the subject. They very detailed and well organized.

Very practical, I would urge people who intend to take this course to come to this course with at least some knowledge of econometrics and statistics. It would come in handy.

Some topics that were covered in this course were not explained in details and, in addition, there was no explanation of the theoretical aspects of the course (for instance, formulas transcript ).

Very interesting intermediate course in Econometrics. I strongly recommend for both new learners and those are interested in refreshing their knowledge in econometrics.
Maybe some blocks are too theoretical, there are some "bugs" in the content, and I miss a bit more of applied econometrics using statistical softwares.
Definetly a very good example of teaching econometrics through MOOC, my heartfelt congratulations to the Econometrics team of the Erasmus University for the great job, it has been a really valuable course to attend.

many mistakes in the exercise solutions

Good content and exercise, very pedagogic.
The only problem are the use of the program: If you don't know how to use a statistical program such as R, you will spend more time struggling with the program than understanding the topic.

It is a good course, but a bit short in my opinion

I'd be happy to have more practical excersises during the course instead/together with formula transformation tasks.

Very informative and technically coherent.
My only suggestion would be to provide software codes with solution.

Good content and quality. Coming from machine learning this gave me a new perspectives, e.g. a topic like endogeneity or the different kind of statistical tests.
I did the course using R, RStudio and R Markdown for the course assignments and that worked great. However, the course is taught without any reference to specific software packages and I think that's a big plus.
Some of the assignments were too academic for my taste (proving statements). I would have rather liked more examples showing different aspects and situations of the taught topics.

Very good insights and step by step methods.
It is more theoretical (manual calculations of different methods) than applied and should be completed by another course for this matter.

Great. Applied knowledge focus.

This course will be a good revision if you have known the models before taking it. But if you are new to the models, you may not really understand them. This course tells you which models to use and how to implement, but does not tell you the rationale behind (maybe the theories are too difficult).
The teaching staff are really helpful and answer every question you raise in the discussion forum.

Generally speaking , I have to say that it is good course , I learned many things. More explanation should be provided for some concepts.

This course is giving us useful insights, however, what it is talking about is not beginner-friendly. If there would be reading materials talking about what we can be using, it would be much better. As a beginner, it is just too hard to continue even for the first week.

Some of the terminology doesn't seem congruent with what we use in North America

Good course but too challenging unless you have a background in maths. Should go slower with clearer examples.

Realmente se necesita la traducción de los cursos

Too much math with not enough explanations.
No explanations on how to solve the exercises on any software.
Exercices are very long (the "10 minutes"/exercise is just a joke - one took nearly an hour). Correction of the exercises are poor (just written answers on paper).

The members of faculty participating in this MOOC seem to be knowledgeable of the material, but the presentation lack content. The whole course seems as an outline , rather than a actual course by itself. Needs more core material, not suitable for someone looking to complement or starting fresh in the topic.

I noticed that during video , professor ask test questions and that test question is asked before the professor explains that part. This is irrelevant. How a student can answer that question without any prior knowledge.

If I can understand all of these derivatives, why shall I attend your course? It is not helpful course, especially for persons looking for some practical econometrics applications rather than focusing on the mathematics side of it.

If you have to pay for the certificate itself, then the course can't be too serious or maybe even that much helpful.

Besides the videos there was low supporting content. I needed to search a lot online to find information that were needed. Waste of money.

The class recording could have been made simple. Lots of notations, and would definitely be difficult for people without prior econometrics background.
