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!!!!

Good introduction to multiple data science tools and their integration with one another .
The instructions in many of exercises are not explicit and in some cases not complete. There is a lot of room for improvement with the exercises.

The instructor could do a better job clearly explaining the topic and/or material, showing a step-by-step 'how-to' on tasks, and testing on what he teaches. There were instances where the quiz questions were not covered by his videos.

In general the contents of the course are good, however, I thinkg that there's too much time waisted in promoting IBM products rather than actually teaching some more introductory things about all the tools mentioned in the course.

while it was good learning about the tools and platforms that exist, I was a little confused by the IBM Watson Platform that did not function that well. That was not the best experience, so I hope the creators can address that !

Good course to understand the tool set and learn basics. However, the site used in the course is now updated which made navigation very difficult. It would serve the student to update these videos and make the most of their time.

Les première semaines sont pertinentes. Le IMB Watson Studio est très désagréable à utilisé. Le fait qu'IBM soit à l'origine du cours impacte très négativement la pertinence des informations et l'utilité que l'on pourra en tirer
By Raul O•
They information in the course is generally very useful as well as the tools introduced. However, some of the videos need to be updated to match the latest version of IBM Watson Studio and specific guidance should be provided.
By Nitin R•
Very informative course but the instructor should update the videos related to the IBM Watson studio there is a lot of confusion as the video which are available shows the earlier version and currently the version is changed.

It's like a huge advertisement class for IBM. I want to learn some really skills and theory, not how to sign up for a IBM account, which is so complicated, almost took me half hour to figure out how to sign up this account.
By Tom H•
The content of this course was quite good, i enjoyed large parts of it. However, there were quite major problems with accessing different areas of IBM Watson that weren't intuitive enough and weren't signposted very well.
By Thomas F•
Not a bad course if the student is brand new to data science / computer science / programming.
I felt I could have easiliy skipped this excepting that accounts needed to be set out for other course dependencies.
By Stamatios G•
Although the core material is very interesting and well-explained, the fact that many of the tools needed in week 1 and 2, is making this course pretty frustrating if you don't know how to overcome this issues.
The course are good, but in China I can't get connected to IBM Watson Studio, even creating a normal account because I can't click my account [confirm] link.
What a pity to give up my whole certificate for that.
By Julia M•
I think that this course needs to be re-engineered. The videos are outdated and the videos jump right into the programming without explaining why you are typing out this code. It is not a course for beginners.
By Nanthakumar N•
This course needs update. The current IBM environment and Tutorial examples are not matching and confusing. It also leads to crate multiple account with IBM.
Otherwise good intro to the tools and environments.
By Anderson F J B•
Interesante porque dan un panorama general acerca de Jupyter, compilación y lenguajes que soporta como Phyton y R. Al ser un curso ofrecido por IBM la herramienta para las tareas es de ellos, Watson Analytics.
By David J H•
A good overview of the various open source tools available. The videos, however, did not always match the material which made it confusing here and there. I am aware they are currently working on fixing this.
By Mitchell L•
this course had a lot of items that I did not feel were beginner level. Most of the labs involved some coding, or language that was not discussed prior to the labs. I felt lost multiple times in this course.
By Zareef J•
Please try to make more details lecture on specific IBM data science tools and short brief for others rather than short brief for every tool. Six to seven week video lecture will be better in my opinion.
By Eugene N•
I think the tutorial for the IBM watson studio needs to be updated. The tutorial was on data science experience (DSX) which isn't available on the website. This made this part of the course hard to follow
By Eduardo d M R•
Course needs an update: still working with the old platform. It gets you confused when you log in and see that they now work with IBM Watson on one screen and screenshots of the old platform on the other.
By J. D C•
The video lectures are outdated and are in dire need of updates. I found myself lost at times, as the current version of Watson does not match the version shown in the lectures. It was a bit frustrating.
By SHAONI C•
videos are someway useful. But I have faced difficulty to find IBM Watson Studio. The Link that was shared in the videos are not directing to the actual watson studio link. Please add the actual link
By sarella c p s•
the course need to be updated. some of things are explained easily but as a beginner it takes lots of time for to understand things. It will be beneficial to the beginner's if the course is updated.
By Sanzio G N•
It is just a marketing for IBM's cloud platform. Plain and simple. However they introduce someone who NEVER seen anything in programming to start looking for available tools. Very shallow knowledge.
