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.

I'd rate it 4 or 5 stars if the course was updated so that the screenshots actually matched the content displayed on the websites.

Instructions sometimes do not correspond to the application screens since they have not updated alongside the application updates.

Good Course .. but i think the material has been stretched to such long unnecessarily, had it been short it would be much better.

It was great to work with all the different tools. But it was a little bit difficult to navigate thru the weeks and assignments.

Would be better if the video content (eg tool screenshots) and intructions match the tool that we were practising on, thank you.

The tutor is extremely difficult to understand. He skips certain important aspects. Plus the course is not properly organized.

Nice overview of open source tools available on multiple providers. Lower grades because the IBM Cloud videos are out of date.

The course should have included few case studies and more examples on these tools otherwise nice exposure to open source tools

Some points are not explained in a clear way. The link provided by course is not working. I had to go to IBM website directly.

There are some outdated videos in this course. I think it would be cool if you could to update the videos about Watson Studio.

Very basic and does nothing more than mention the open source software and their features at a very shallow, and basic level.

It was an OK review of the tools but the course definitely needs updating.

The material is not suited for absolute beginners.


Jul 1, 2020

Most of the topics are unable to follow. This course doesn't seems to be designed for beginners, It could have be better.

The Waston Studio videos are outdated.

Time consuming to figure it out, esp. when your internet was not that good either..

Great if you have or will have a job at IBM, otherwise not as interesting since you come in contact with many IBM tools.

The data science experience page demonstrated in the video does not match the actual interface. It was quite confusing.

IBM Watson Studio was pretty confusing and it wasted a lot of time. please improve it. Overall satisfactory experience


Nov 5, 2019

Videos are not upto date so for practice session there was lot of time wasted in just navigating to the right content

Easy. You should include more exercises for each too and get students to do some small but real project on each tool.

This REALLY needs to be updated for IBM Watson studio, the tools are completely different than what are in the video

Very basic. The IBM cloud advertisements make it feel more like a product endorsement than a real course, at times.

Assignments can be improved, they're parallel with course goal but learning about specific tools is a bit boring.


Sep 10, 2020

This course shows so many tools, but at the same time, you learn nothing. It so much content, but so little depth

The course could have been better if the presenter could have been in sync with the latest versions of software.
