TOP REVIEWS FROM INSPIRING AND MOTIVATING INDIVIDUALS
This was first course on Coursera and I am so happy after completing it, there was so much to learn. Both the instructors are simply great. I never thought, I will enjoy online learning so much.
This course presented excellent educational material, activities and examples from real life that helps you to go through all the content keeping your interest from the beginning to the end.
Overall I find this course as a good investment of my time, however, it's very theoretical, I would like to to see more real examples that illustrate the frameworks used in this course.
