This is one of the Best Course available on Reinforcement Learning. I have gone through various study material but the depth and practical knowledge given in the course is awesome.

Challenging (unlike many other courses on Coursera, it does not baby you and does not seem to be targeting as high a pass rate as possible), but very very rewarding.

Content provides a good - and useful :) - overview of reinforcement learning. The hands-on exercises in the notebooks were the main reason I decided to do the course, and I enjoyed doing them. However, they did contain a lot of errors and broken code,. This would need to be fixed for the course to earn a 5/5.

Overall very informative and well done course, I highly recommend it. The support in the discussion forums is the main area where it lacks. Sometimes the topics are hard to grasp, so it's really a big help when there is good support in the forums.

Some details are not explained as clear as it can be, maybe there can more reading material to bridge the knowledge gap between course syllabus and intermediate level ML experience. Nice work tho!

Wonderful content and super interesting problem assignments, but please fix the bugs in the graders and spend some time to adapt the code to the Coursera platform.

Four stars only because the notebooks/excercises don't work well. Aside of that, I learned a lot in this class. Thank you!!

this course is helpful to learning Reinforce learning, but with some ambiguous context need a lot time to understand,

Great instructors and course material, but there are enough bugs in the quizzes and assignments to be annoying.

+ Great coding assignments : practical and motivating !
- Sometimes the videos could be more clear

Awesome course, although some quizzes and programming assignments could be more user friendly.

Wonderful course. Just would need a little bit more work on the subtitles.

Notebooks are very useful to learn the theory and I certainly learned a lot throughout this course. However, codes in homework often lack of clarity and sometime includes errors and not enough assert checks. The audio is also hard to and understand, the slides are often poor, missing keywords, recaps, organization, sometimes you have 4 dense slides per lessons. Would be great to have better slides as a support of the speech. The questions during videos are really useful. The teaching staff is really reactive and many issues, difficulties have already been solved by the community, which helps a lot for autonomy. So thank you, it was really really useful, but it could have been better and cleaner !

The teachings are actually quite good, and the problem sets are fine, but there are so many bugs in the submission methods that you spend halv of your coding time trying to debug the submit methods. Frustrating. If they fix the course, this course will be highly recommended.

The course is well organized. Reference and extra learning items is helpful to enhance the knowledge.
BUT! There are so many small bugs in the assignments that it really takes time to fix and make the course hard to get passed.

Sometimes it is hard to understand/follow the instructors. And the assignments (especially the grader) are bit too much beta, which causes a lot of extra effort.

The course itself is great, but the assignments are a bit chaotic (so make sure to bring a lot of patience and willingness to bugfix)

The reading material was very weak and scattered. Some of the blog posts were nice but in general it's not very helpful to link a bunch of publications and a couple full-length books. Instead, It would be nice to have a small document that goes through the material in written form (if even just a summary).
The assignments were not very good and lacked depth. Often times I found myself implementing some formula/algorithm without knowing how it works or why. As such, it was easy to finish the assignments without learning anything. I would rather have two in-depth assignment (maybe an implementation from scratch with guidelines) than 6 or 7 shallow ones. The problem with the shallow ones is that there's no incentive to take the time and understand the functions that are already pre-coded. This makes it hard to follow whats going on "under the hood". You can, of course, still take the time to do this, but I feel like a true understanding of everything that goes on in all the algorithms in all the assignments would take far too long.
There was a general lack of theoretical material regarding the covered methods and algorithms. Why do they work?

The collection of curriculum was great together with links to external resources. However, there was several weaknesses with the course. First, several of the assignments had problems with submitting the code, which required some extra coding to be able to submit assignment. Event with multiple weeks with many students reporting the problem, nothing was corrected. Second, the lectures were weak. I knew something about Q-learning from before, but after the lecture I was more confused than when I started. The topics I were not familiar from before the course,I ended up searching online or using the resources linked to instead of the lectures. The question exercises felt arbitrary and not helpful at all. The programming exercises were not well explained. I were able to finish them, but to much unnecessary annoyance.

Don't let Alexander Panin read lectures. He is an awful speaker: always in a hurry, uses so many redundant words in his speech. He "killed" so much interesting material in this course. I truly believe he could write cool lecture notes and handouts (currently the course lacks it). Alexander, please, write materials, don't read lectures.

Course is good. But too many grader issues. Accent is tough to understand sometimes. The concept is not built layer wise..Instead they dump it as a heap with tough jargon which had to broken down to be understood slowly by pausing..

Course not ready and has installation prerequisites. Seems to use a libraries (Docker, Env).
I waste too much of my time trying to install libraries and dependencies for online courses, most of which become obsolete within a year or two.
Additionally, the logic embedded within the library is often the thing I want to learn, and abstracting it only teaches me about the bugs and shortcomings of that library.
