Thank you so much for this amazing interactive course. I enjoyed every part for improvement suggestions please consider increasing the lab projects' time a bit so that students can be on less pressure
Great course to introduce the specialization. It could be more robust, but it does the job and you are also provided with links for documents that will help you build on what you learn in the course.

Theorie und Praxis sind sehr ausgewogen. Gute Erklärungen, sehr gute Speaker .... und ein LAB mit praktisch keinen Fehlern. Braucht einfach manchmal etwas Geduld ....
Die verschiedenen Folien können nicht von allen Vorträgen exportiert werden und weiterführende Informationen wären hilfreich.

Solid course, some explanation of the specifics commands `kubectl` and the various gcloud utils would be helpful during labs in order to help retain the information learned. I feel that it would be easy to forget something like, `kubectl get pods` and what that command might do, over time.

This is a basic course on GCP (Google Cloud Platform) Infrastructure. It is thorough and introduces a cloud enthusiasts into concepts that will make him/her comfortable, aware, informed as they progress in their quest to know more about cloud technologies used by cloud service providers.

Videos and labs are great.
There was few minor bugs when watching videos but i dont know if it comes from ipad app, coursera or the video itself.
One thing that can be improved are the quiz. There should be more questions to assess if understood, followed well what was said in the videos.

It is very well organised course with good hands on lab. Flow may seem little faster for beginners or people who are new to few concepts. The last section on Bigdata and ML goes little faster. But otherwise, highly recommend this course for anyone who wants to familiarise GCP services.

Good course giving you an overview of GCP Core Infrastructure, with some good practicals allowing you to do hands on build to embed the information presented in each section. Could be improved by having a final practical lab where you used all previous in conjunction with each other.
By Bill S•
Really Really enjoyed the last couple Chapters of the course about Big Data and Machine Learning, but wow was it tough! Wish they would have done the quiz before the hands on exercise, lost a lot of info while doing the exercise and had to go back and re-watch all the videos again!

There was some problems with the lab environment but in the end they always worked. Only twice did I have to redo them even though it said I got all the points. The instructors are great and the bitesize videos are perfect for keeping your attention and not overwhelming you.

The course is very explanatory but the only thing I had a problem was that the course instructors were talking a bit too fast that it becomes difficult for the learner to register it in his/her brain. I had to listen to the videos twice to understand each concept properly.

There's issues with code correlation and its supposed outcome when inputting, but that's more towards testing it before putting it into the course. Some of the instructions could be clearer, feels like some of the steps are missing in some areas, but overall a good course.

Some of the course contents are old and QuickLab-Google Console interface is recent. It creates confusion between what was showed during demo and during QikLab sessions. You may consider upgrading the training materials. Also the SSH does not open during any of session.

While it does provide a good introduction to GCP and its many tools and services, the text/narration sometimes feels a bit like advertising (like repeating a product's name several times, etc.). It's not bad, it's just sometimes and the course is still totally worth it.
By Aditya S S•
The course had good content but some parts could do with a little less jargon. The hands on experience with qwiklab integration was very helpful. Some videos had mistakes and unsynced subtitles which made it hard to follow especially considering the jargon being used.
By Ionut-Mihai S•
there is a video that is faded and overall the structure in some video are not well defined , but the information that your getting from the course is quite useful, i was able to finish it quite fast and i was a bit surprised on the questions but over a nice course
By Dumidu H•
Great resource for anyone who wants to grasp the breadth of the Google Cloud Platform without getting bogged down too much by implementation specifics. The labs offered in each module lets the learner experience the different services first hand. Thanks for sharing.
By Pablo P•
Overall pretty good.
I like very much the ability to download video and transcript for later study
Video labs don't include the necessary previous qwiklab steps.
BigQuery google video, and coursera/qwiklab instructions don't match the actual experience (different UI)

The GCP lab session had some error in Kubernetes so took 2 days to resolve and quicklabs for deployment manager and stackdriver instructions are wrong and need no change in project ID and Zone. Got to know when quicklab expert told me. That took a day of my time.
By Amanda C•
I would highly recommend you take a Tell Show Tell approach. Identify at the beginning of each section what you are going to be talking about and a "big picture" view of the topic and then get into the details and then finish with a summary of what was covered.
By Von M•
Mostly good, labs were helpful but had broken parts that required troubleshooting. Probably mostly because GCP and software updates. However it did help to get to know the actual product better. Study material was mostly good and questions were mostly on par.
By Karama A•
For someone who just started to learn about Google Cloud, this course is very helpful, especially if you read through the readings of each module. I was nervous about the lab, but the step by step guidance was extremely helpful. Here I go for the next Week !

El curso me pareció bueno creo que se cumplio el objetivo de aprender los fundamentos de google cloud. Sin embargo no me gusto que los quizes solo estén en ingles (algunos sin subtitulo), y lo mismo los vídeos solo con subtitulo y no traducidos al español.
By Justin S•
There are some key instructions absent in the lab instructions, which completely halts the lab progress. I had to do some workarounds to get the lab done. Need to fix them or many students might not complete the course.
Other than that, it's a good course.
By Pranay M•
The content is really helpful for beginners who want to learn about Google infrastructure and its entire cloud ecosystem. 4/5 stars for the content, clarity and cohesion. Though it would have been more better if qwiklabs were more practical in nature.
By Alexander D•
Great Teachers. Good content. Exercises could be a little more comprehensive. The private enrollment with my Google Account for Exercises did not work in Chrome. There is no support for this. which feels lousy. Managed it finally by myself in Firefox
By Aaron H•
This is a good introductory course and for the most part instructions are very explicit in the labs, but there are some code errors that caused delays. Videos are very good and informative and the quizzes mostly reflect what was shared in the videos.
