TOP REVIEWS FROM INTRODUCTION TO CLOUD COMPUTING
Absolutely loved the videos featuring experts explaining in a very concise and easy to understand manner. I would enjoy more of these as opposed to the standard text and graphics videos.
Overall a very good introductory course. The video presentations are excellent. Also the real use cases presented are very illustrative. Some high-level parts could be shortened.
My first course on Coursea and won't be my last because of this easily understandable, work at your own pace, simple one. I can't wait to explore and experience more like it.
The peer review assignments seem to be a bottle neck everyone on the forums seems to be begging to be reviewed and I am hoping I don't have to wait long before I can finish this and continue
