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.

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

This course introduces basic and important statistical methods both in conceptual and practical ways. I wish this course were more longer and covered the topics deeper because I really enjoyed learning the topics.

Good course, I would recommend people who have basic knowledge about statistics and linear algebra take this course if the topic of econometrics interest you.

This course is really good for recapping what you have learned before. It would be a difficult course if you start it without previous background.

Good information, and detailed mathematical representation of the concepts, but often you will have to do outside research to truly understand the material, and the building blocks are not very helpful beyond a basic refresher course on matrices and statistics. This class requires a lot of studying and initiative to seek outside help to understand the material.
If more time was dedicated to truly explaining the concepts and principles and the REASONING behind them instead of just supplying equations and test names, this class would get a 5 star rating.

More focus should be given on application part in initial modules vs. derivation. Also, the presentation can be made a bit more simple to understand.

It is a very good course I guess, but being 15 years old, it didn't make any sense.
However, I got to learn a lot of new things about a field which I wish to pursue.

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

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

Not much teaching going on here. The concepts are barely touched on before the student is asked to jump into training exercises that require lengthy proofs of concepts not thoroughly taught.

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