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.

Only offers a superficial introduction. The slides seem onorganized and clatted with text. Videos are way to short and furhter pointers for deeper learning are missing as a whole.
Teachers aren't engaging. They just read the slides, without explaining anything. They aren't active on the forum so we cannot ask questions...
Quizzes are also full of errors...

I'm very disappointed about this course and the full specialization. The level for the videos and the exercises is quite low and I regret have invested my money on that.

Very poor course. Poor lecture quality (audio), poor material coverage and the interactive material was basically going through the Cloudera tutorial.

No responsible person to answer the problem facing in discussion of assignment.

Wasted too much time with this class! Instructions are terrible. Very frustrating trying to figure it out. Don't recommend this course.

One of the professor just read the slide with no further explanations...I can just read the slide by myself, no need to pay $79 for it.
By Utkarsh S•
the assignments do not clarify, what exactly is required.
for beginers there needs to be more step oriented explanation of assignments
By Dmitrii S•
Not worth it. It is just 1-2 hours of tutorials/bad quality presentations. All of information in this course can be easily googled.

The instructors just review everything so fast. They don't intend to teach you something they just want to review their knowledge.
By Rob R•
This is a very poorly led course. The instruction is not insightful and the exercises are basically just copy/paste activities.

i wanted to learn the material; i ended up with poor slides, presenters who read the slides, assignments that don't add value.

Hard to understand professor, they don't look confident at all, it seems to me they are just reading prompts screen. Big pass

I hated instructors and the hands on with python was very bad. I suffered a lot and this could have been done much easier.
By HUMBERTO D C•
Labs have inaccurate and insufficient instructions, tests are ambiguous and include material not covered in the videos.
By Mario L•
Poor content, very complicated to follow, no industry examples, no feedback from tutors, a waste of time and money.
By Arun K•
Worst course i have taken in Coursera. Just theory, theory and theory... some stupid assignments that has no value.

The Cloudera VM is a big part of the problem. Hadoop and Spark are powerful, but the GUIs give it training wheels.
By Enrique R•
If I can't upload my assignments , I can't contact with a teacher and I am evaluated what kind of course is this.

It's better to read a text book than enrolling in this course. The instructor just reads through the slides
By Yuanfeng M•
Horrible Course , not suitable for non-experts at all.
Yet , ironically , it claims to target at non-experts
By SHAKTI S M•
Very poor quality videos and lectures. HIghly non-friendly techniques. Learning scope is not good.
By Mitali V•

By Hui-Chih S•
Not friendly for a beginner to learn in this course!
I'm very regretful to pay for this course.

I have tried several times to start this course but every time I found it extremely boring.
