It serves perfecty its aim that is giving a first glance of the open course tools for data science. Of course each tool is briefly touched and it hands over the student the duty to deepen each tool.
To the contrast of other reviews, I find the content very well bifurcated and fed to the learners. The course very easily digestable and I have had a great amount of fun learning it.. Go for it!!!!

There are some videos which are not updated and IBM Watson doesn't really work as described in scripts and videos. Project parts completely missing for some settings.
By Andy C•
I am ready to have more hands on experience, the overview of IBM products seems much to long. I would rather learn about the products doing more hands on exercises.

The Watson studio training was poor and dated. The Watson interface was poorly constructed and not intuitive or user friendly. I prefer Pycharm and Rstudio to Watson

It was difficult to get Watson Studio working initially. Faced many issues. And created almost 3 different accounts to get it working. Lost 3 days of time in that.

The DSX video is very out-dated, I was pretty confused and frustrated while trying to follow the video guides. The R-studio map function was pretty cool though.

What tutorial video shows and the user interface (IBM Watson studio) look different so that it was confusing sometimes. The tutorial videos need to be updated.
By Charles K•
Content is good. Videos need to be updated very soon. In the middle of the course I was confused because the videos are so much different than actual websites.

Unfortunately none of the opensource tools are leveraged in the subsequent courses.
All the subsequent courses will mandate you to use IBM products.

The videos are a bit outdated, especially in week 3. There is no resemblance between the current version of Watson studio and what is explained in the videos.
By Robert I•
It was fun to learn new data science tools. The third week was sometimes frustrating because the course videos did not match with the layout of Watson Studio.
By Sebastian T•
Some of the classes seem rushed, especially during Week 2. It can cause confusion and some fear to attendants. Week 3 picks up the pace again, and was great
By James P•
It was a good basic overview across a range of topics. The assignments were very, very easy however; I don't think it was particularly challenging at all.
By Everett T•
The instructions are not very clear and also the interface for IBM Waston has changed a lot but the videos have not been updated, which caused confusions.
By Jay P•
The content was not so much helpful for someone who is learning the data science, Rather it was more like the pitch of IBM Watson, especially 3rd module.
By Mingshu L•
too basic... and it's really weird that I have to submit so many times for quiz until it feels less of a learning experience but more of a bug experience
By Katarina S•
Not all learning materials are up to date. I needed to invest significant amount of time to understand how to create New Project in IBM Watson Studio!
By Cole R M•
A little too easy (only took an hour or two) and navigating IBM's Watson is confusing at times. Overall though, this course delivers what it promises.
By Max C•
Ok intro - just light on underlying technical details and probably requires a background into coding to really get good insight into tools and uses.
By Александр А•
Didn't like this module cause all this Open Source tools could be mentioned in 1 short video lection and then learners should learn the specific one
By Katie B•
It was informative. However, it seems outdated. The module for Rstudio is basically useless because it n longer works in data Scientist Workbench.
By Robert T•
The content of the course is very good but until the videos are updated for IBM Studio it is very confusing trying to follow along with the videos.
Felt a little bit like a filler course. Very focused on teaching you about IBM products and services. Only got into basic coding in the last week.
By Dinesh B B•
Its been quite a trouble because the tutorial videos are not updated with the updated watson studio website. But the content was very satisfactory
By Sasha-Li C•
Useful information for outdated version of IBM cloud.
No response to course forum for 2 days... and counting. I cannot share a file in the Cloud??
By Samid V•
This course is a very brief introduction to a variety of tools. The course can probably be tackled in just a couple of days if you are committed.
