Great Course if you are interested in dissecting the genome. Galaxy opens up this invisible world and allows even us little people to explore the world once reserved to only Academia.

This was a lot of work and rewarding to complete. The final project was challenging and the forum contributors helped a lot in pointing out good resources or strategies they had used.

The lectures in no way prepare an individual to tackle the the final project. The lectures show the individual how to operate the software but does not go into great detail with the functionality, be ready to cruise around forums to get the scoop as to what you should be doing.

The lectures and quizzes were great to teach Galaxy to a first-time user, but were not sufficient to inform on how to do the final project. If more information is provided on how to do the final project, then this course would improve.

The materials did not make sense for people who without basic knowledge about biology, just like me. The videos just told you "How to do it" but not "Why to do it". I really feel soooooo difficult to finish the final project.

Course project is difficult for someone who have little idea about the steps in pipelines. Could have included a video that explains few commonly used pipelines and ask the participants to do a project based on it.

With everyday advancements in the technology, these video lecture are quite old. Also, we face lot of issues while following the tutorials as the galaxy platform has changed a lot in a while.

I think this course is ok but is a limited version you need to spend a big time researching a lot about all the things to understand well the purpose and the final project.

Galaxy seems to me out of date. There are some useful information, however there are also some drawbacks, especially not clear criteria of assessment of final project .

Lack of essential guidance to finish the project. Would recommend beginners to take command line course in advance to know bcf file format before starting this course.

The course lectures should have covered more material to teach more functions that would be helpful on the final project. The final project was very difficult.

there is still a bridge between theory and application. was u learn and wat u use is still different. however for basic knowledge this is a good course

Course was good. But at times running jobs in Galaxy was difficult due to their internal issue and the discussion forum was not very helpful to guide.

Most of the content is outdated and there wasn't much help in the lectures for tee final project. I had to search for my own resources to complete.

Course materials were good, final project was very difficult without prior experience. Lots of digging through forums to find details.

The final project is the real challenge, the course lectures are just and introduction and you learn the hard way with the project.

The project would have required a bit more explanations to say the least... for the non biology majors

Quite a few assumptions of knowledge for the learner making it difficult for a beginner to understand

The course is good overall but does not prepare for the final project. That is a very tedious task.
