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
I really think this is a good way to get people that hasn't had interaction with GCP before on track, but it also is of really good use for regular users to discover more capabilities of the platform

Presentations and contents look like sales pitch not technical stuff. Whenever one step into the Quizzes or labs, it becomes obvious this material is not for architects, developers, or any technical professional trying to support GCP.
By Austin S•
The overview is good, but some of the content is vague. A good example of this is the CLI commands used to perform operations. Understanding the CLI better can help admins perform actions in the commandline rather than in the GUI.
By Mahendra B•
Course content is too much. Qwiklabs are interesting but some of the commands are not working (I experience only one). The presenters bore the contents and I think reorganizing the content to atleast two weeks is better.
By Sadi S•
There were some new updates to the lab and the videos. Some of the content doesnt match up correctly. Most of my work is completed but one lab was having GS:// url problems and wouldnt let me complete the course.

AWS course was easier to understand with better explanations, but really did appreciate the labs that were placed in to get hands on experience. It made me much more comfortable interacting with google cloud
By Andreas N C•
Could've used more explanation on some of the networking things, especially interconnect. Also, I think all the quizzes should have explanations on the right answers, and a link to a video on wrong answers.
Labs are ok, Lectures lack interaction (just slides presentation) and the monotonous tone and long sentences of the presenter makes it hard to understand and difficult to pick out important points. (IMHO)

This was my first Coursera course. I enjoyed the lessons, while a pdf file including all the course material would be appreciated especially for a quick recap and full text search before facing the tests.
By Rafael M R•
Many videos need updating, specially when referring to services that were once in Beta (Cloud Functions, some ML services...), and there are no mention of the latest additions (Cloud Run, ML, and so on).
By Karen A B•
Brian Rice needs his hands tied, it's distracting. Some of the labs instructions were not following the actual screens in the CGP console. I wish there would have been more detail on the data tools.
By Laurent G A•
Good basic course
very detailed (at least for the first level of depth in each module)
could have been slightly improved by using the same app example in all albs & demos (as much as possible of course)
By Ryan B•
While the material is useful, the organization needs work (e.g. EVERYTHING is a separate section). It's a new course though, so I can see these kinds of issues being ironed out in the future.
By Reza S•
Too busy, too much material. The tests do not make any sense why anyone should learn such details. There is no way that much information in an 8 hour class is going to stay in anyone's mind.
By Ralf W•
BUT WAY TOO OUTDATED.
The betas are 3-4 years now GA.
EG: Cloud Run is missing. Cloud build is missing.
BUT for the rest (which is still valid) good intro. so only 3 ot out 5
By Kamal A•
The training material needs updating. The code snippets are useful however it might be better to ask the student to run man commands for help on certain shell commands such gcloud or gsutil
By Merlijn B•
Although it covers a lot, it is quite the grind to sit through all the videos and exactly repeating the steps the instructor did in the video doesn't feel as playful as it could be
By Yeo Y L•
Very wide brief of what tools are offered from Google.
Gave a good comparison of the different tools, at certain points it felt like marketing.
It is very friendly to beginners.
By Saurabh S•
It should be little bit slow sothat people can get time to understand concepts. I had to stop many times and had to listen repeated sessions to make my understanding better.
By Vinay P•
some of the content are not very well structured, need improvement to make it easy to understand and provide a context to where and how to use the technical concepts.
By Aman M•
A OK overview of GCP concepts, however during the course I had to file 2 significant bugs that prevented me from completing some of the steps in 2 different labs.
By Pierre R•
The course is very interesting to get a broad overview of the services and features of GCP. The labs are a bit boring though and I got a few issues with them.
By Mahammad R S•
SSH into different machine without adding public key of the user doesn't work in real-time but, its working in LAB. otherwise overall good to know about GCP.
See it as a way to understand Google's Cloud products rather than a way to understanding cloud itself. The labs are great and the quiz are a bit too rote.
By MAYA S•
Too much of information and too many but videos and quiz; it would better if it could have just 4 parts; loved the commentator's explanations though.
By Massimo P•
more examples of real application cases of the different services would be useful and not just the description of the features and functionalities
