Very good course for beginners!

A few minor issues like questions during videos not accepting correct answer or skipping to next lesson before answering final question with auto-skip enabled.

The audio, the audio, the audio! The bad quality is really consistent and at times it is so bad that you cannot understand what they are saying. The editing, the volume levels, the quality, you name it! It is all over the place. Also the given code in some exercises appears with huge spaces between the words or even cutting the words instead of going to the next line.

And it is a pity, because other than that it is a very good course. The difficulty raises very smoothly and the assessments have interesting topics that keep you engaged and teach you also things irrelevant to programming plus the tutors are very likeable. Also the mentor is very helpful and patient with all of our questions.

it's well explained, but it's lacking some incentives/ideas for the student to get started with some programming himself/herself. Like the crossword assignment, but as something optional, e.g., with some helper files and ideas how to get started. ("program a labyrinth game - we give you code for detecting keyboard strokes and creating temporary printouts to the screen, etc." / "we prepared a parser that creates wikipedia-like websites. you have to write functions that define formatting etc." / ...)

dunno. maybe I am the wrong candidate for the course because even though python is new to me, i know the concept of programming quite well. But even if not

It was a great pre introduction, the assignments and quizes/exam took me much longer than what they said it should take, but I was able to get through them. The examples and notes provided often were too basic and the assignments were too basic for the level of questions in the quizes and exam. At the time of starting the program, I couldn't get the corresponding book to the lectures to follow along and was led to believe that the notes / reading provided was sufficient, but the lectures and notes were too basic - I had to refer to many other external books, and online turorials, etc to develop the knowledge to pass the exam.
