This course will give in-depth knowledge of project management. Peer-graded assignments will help us a lot to think in other ways how others will proceed and learn from their assignments too.

The only thing that stops me from awarding 5 stars is the lack of content on real life examples which makes this a very abstract exercise. While there is a good fictional case study that helps in turning concepts to practice, the value will be compounded if only instructors added more real life examples to every concept they wanted to impart.

Apart from that dissatisfaction, the course itself is easy to absorb for working professionals. It might offer good introduction to beginners but they may have to revisit after experience to get best out of it.

The course was awesome and very insightful! However, I would like to highlight an issue which I faced throughout the course. In some of the videos, it was difficult to comprehend the video lecture due to low volume of Professor. I had to go through the written section multiple times and re-watch the videos to fully comprehend. Hopefully, this technical issue would be solved and is not persistent in other courses of this specialization!

A relatively good course. Week 1-3 are pretty good but week 4 is absolutely vague and impossible to follow.

The handout provided by the instructors is good but doesn't 100% match the video lectures.

Another flaw is that you have to wait a lot so your assignments get peer reviewed. So that may cause you stay longer in the course and pay more for the subscription.

Good contents but a but the voice explanation is sometimes hard to follow if you also read the slide. I'd suggest to refer more strictly to the slide contents and wording or reducing further the content of the slides to give the right importance to the speech. As is I struggle to understand if it is better to follow the slide or the voice
