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!!!!
Absolutely Loved this course!! Challenging at times to keep up with all the terms and processes. The course provided great insight into Data Science. Would highly recommend it as your first course.

the course is not up to date with the latest interfaces of the open tools sites, causing a lot of confusion and need to wait for an instructor/mentor to reply in the forum section.

The courses "What is Data Science" and "Open Source tools for Data Science" could be merged in one, there would be a better explanation about the tools available from IBM....
By Sarah W•
Too much straight forward fact, on fact with list on list (hard to stay awake and focused on this because there wasn't anything to break up the facts or the list of tools).
By Amandine B•
Some useful explanation of how to use Jupyther/Github/R but also lots of time wasted on presenting, over and over, IBM's tools and some very poor quality videos for Github.
By Edward J•
Week 2 was very poorly explained. I did enjoy looking at the IBM tools but there was far too much in such a short space of time - too much video made it less pleasurable.
By Daniel T F•
The whole content of the course is very basic and online scratching on the surface. It could easily be integrated in another course and though could be more constructiv.

I give this course a 2. It was so difficult to sign into IBM Cloud. I got repeated error messages. The tool seems to have a lot of bugs and makes learning frustrating.
By Sujith K S•
Rushed through course explaining too many things without proper background knowledge. One section was advertisement for IBM tools which most of us probably won't use.
By Truong G•
To me, this is just a presentation of online tools on cloud data storage. There should be more practical exercises from easy to hard to get used to with these tools.
By Juan J L M•
The course is not updated with all the tools and people spend a lot of time trying to see how the tools work.
Think more application exercise should be available
By Luis P R•
A few problems with IBM Developer Skills Network, specifically the Manage Data Tool and the Zeppelin Tool. Nevertheless, it was a good and interesting course
By Elizabeth C V•
The course explanations and classes were poorly structured and took 10 times more time for me to understand the concepts. I give a low rate for this course
By Umair A•
A lot of time, very little learnt. Two courses and only thing learnt was definition of Data Science and creating accounts. I hope this is going some where.
By Montoisy F•
Too much IBM-centric, lots of problems encountered with IBM studio/cloud installation.
Good point: Professors are very responsive to problems of students.
By Javier F S•
Too much information about the different tools that can be used in Data Science. Very broad and at the end, I just learned a bit about Jupyter Notebooks
By Omar K•
IBM Cloud is truly a mess, full of bugs and nothing works as expected which made it much more difficult to complete the course than it should have been.
By Yulia L J•
Videos are super low quality. I understand that this is an IBM course, but don't really want to learn in details their Watson Studio, that nobody uses.
By Boya D•
Course about Watson Studio is outdated. Students wasted time on project because of this. Since students are paying for the course, it is unacceptable.
By Daniel B•
It seems to be one big ad for IBM products, and I did not find anything very useful. It seems a bit like losing time than learning anything useful.
By Leanne O•
This course is not structured well and not great for beginners. You are introduced to a lot of tools without much context or actual instruction.
By Yinlu D•
Have wasted quite some time in searching back and forth for the updated features on Jupyter Notebook due to part of the outdated course content.
By Erin M•
The course materials need updating. The IBM platform has changed which has made it hard to maneuver the website and follow the directions given.
By Inon Z•
low level content. a combination of a few available IBM tutorial. The didn't even bother to change the names of the old platform to the new one.
By Aliakbar S•
Very boring course... It was not that deep! It only takes a few hours to complete it! To be honest, I felt like it was a Kindergarten course!!!
This course was just the marketing of IBM tools. I gained nothing expect the link which was in a discussion where I learned some basic python.
