I'm forced to give 5 stars. I don't want to have a certification on a poor quality course (another coursera mistake). This material needs tremendous amount of work to get finished and revised.
Learned about Hadoop Ecosystem, limitations of map-reduce approach and Spark as a solution to overcome some of limitations.Thanks for giving me the opportunity to participate in this MOOC.
Some assignment questions exceed lecture coverage, hope to have more materials for reference

The course was OK although some of the quiz question were phrased in a quite confusing way.
If the lecturer could be native English speaker, I think it wil help students learn better
By Youga L•
Could be more focussed on applications with an individual project as the final assignment
By Vaishali Z•
Good content. But instructor reads over the presentation hardly going into detailing.
By XU D•
the assignments were not perfected explained, especially the second one in Week4
By Adam A•
Great course but way too superficial. I would add "Introduction to" in the title
By Lee A J•
very basic Spark, hadoop information. I can learn from anywhere that is free.
By Hendrik E•
Good overview about hadoop ecosystem but does not provide detailed insights.
By Tang J•
Course material and practices are good, but some quiz were quite confusing
By Anjali C•
At times difficult to follow.
But, will surely complete the specialization.
By Yifan X•
The accent is driving me crazy, and the lecturer is just reading scripts.
By Pablo F•
Very technical. Requires intermediate knowledge of programming in python
It's a nice introduction though it may have gone deeper into details.
By Ankit P•
Not so elaborate. Lectures, slides and content needs to be improved.
last week quizzes where very different from given information
By Ivan S•
too basic. nice overview, but I have expected heavier inside.
By Mark E•
Good course, though had trouble with Cloudera VM platform.
By Philippe L V•
Interesting points, but it is not practical enough for me.
Good basic course covering fundamentals of Hadoop Platform
By Biao T•
It would be much more helpful with more hand-on material.
By Antonello G•
Not the best course taken. Instructions not always clear.
By Sai k M•
The topics need to be explained in a more simple manner
By Gleb B•
The lectures are poor. The assignments are interesting
There is firther scope of improvement in the presen
