The video quality could use some re-filming in better quality. Sound quality is also kind of bad. Everything else is top notch.

As a teacher, I know aspects that makes educational content good and not so good. This was a very good educational experience for me, and I bet it relates to...

1: Efficient video lectures, not too long, followed up by questions forcing you to be attentive and causing you to retrieve memories about the content (this is retrieval practice, and that is a great study technique).

2: Very well made programming assignments in a programming environment very suitable for the task, using octave with the provided code stubs will not distract you from the actual content to learn.

If i could rate this course with a decimal place, I would rate it 4.9, but there is no way I'm rounding down to a mere 4 stars!

For the 5.0 rather than 4.9, I'd like to see more interleaved exercises and spaced repetition.

Professor Ng's teaching skills make this course accessible for everybody who's interested in machine learning.

The quizzes and programming excercises provide a lot of additional insight. Highly recommended!

Amazing course! Very well prepared and conducted!
