Prof. Koller did a great job communicating difficult material in an accessible manner. Thanks to her for starting Coursera and offering this advanced course so that we can all learn...Kudos!!

The course was deep, and well-taught. This is not a spoon-feeding course like some others. The only downside were some "mechanical" problems (e.g. code submission didn't work for me).

Some tutorials need disambiguating documentation (upgrade :)) but otherwise, the course is really good. It would also help if there is a mention of what chapters to study from the book for every lesson -- in the slides.

This specialization covers a lot of concepts and programming assignments which are very helpful in understanding the concepts clearly. Although, I wish there is some form of explanation for the programming assignments.

Overall very good quality content. PAs are useful but some questions/tests leave too much to interpretation and can be frustrating for students. Audio quality for the classes could also be improved.

The lecture was a bit too compact and unsystematic. However, if you also do a lot of reading of the textbook, you can learn a lot. Besides, the Quiz and Programming task are of high qualities.

The course is great with plenty of knowledge. A little defect is about description about assignment. As the forum discussed, several quizzes may confusing.

I really enjoyed attending this course. It is foundational material for anyone who wants to use graphical models for inference and decision making..

A good introduction to PGM, from very basic concepts to some move in-depth features. A big disadvantage is Matlab/Octave programming assignments.

Thanks to this course, Probabilistic Graphical Models are not anymore an esoteric subject! I am really looking for the second part of the course.

The class was very exciting and challenging, but I felt the programming assignments weren't dependent on understanding the classwork at all.

Really interesting contents but it would be great to have the exercises in a more up to date programming environment (python for instance)

A very demanding course with some glitches in lectures and materials. The topic itself is very interesting, educational and useful.

Great material. Course mentors are nowhere to be found and some of the problems are hard, so I'd have liked to see some guidance.

Excellent introduction into probabilistic graph models. Introduced me to Baysian analysis and is quite helpful for my work.

Some interesting knowledges about PCM, but I think I need more detailed information in the succeeding courses.

Good course, quite complex, wish some better quality slides, and more quizzes to help understand the theory

The coding assignments can be compulsory too.
Maybe not as vast, but maybe interleaved with the quizzes

Very good course. It should contain more practical examples to make the material better to understand.

Great course, however, the honors track assignments are a bit too tedious and take lots of time.

The course is pretty good. I love the way that the professor led us into the graphical models.

great job, although the last PA is a huge pain / difficulty spike - more hints would be nice

There are many error in the implementations for octave. Aside from that, the course is fine

Great and well paced content.
Quizzes really helps nailing the tricky points.
