The course is excellent. The content and guides are very helpful. Just one detail to improve: The certificate doesn't look good with that Google signature, it would be better a Google logo or a stamp. Thank you!

I think Google can send better notifications the assignment is due. I think there can be a weekly open house to have students ask questions. I think Google can recommend a hard workbook to work through the pmp.

I​ enjoyed the course it is very well designed, and have got the certificate. There is a suggestion that instead of just writing Google at the signature area of certificate, do include signature of instructors.

Pretty basic beginning. A few good ideas for job searching/interviewing in the future. I was more interested in doing project management within our department. As right now we really don't and it shows.

Good for beginners. But also good for more experienced users like me. It filled in gaps inmy knowledge base and gave me a framework to discuss things I've been doing but didn't know how to explain why.

Great introduction to new terms. The instructor was engaging and charming. Only hard part to get through was some of the slower sections that mostly discussed items that most people should know.

Very engaging and informative! What I like most is that is is geared for "real world" lessons on how to achieve objectives and not just text book information. Plus, its short, and to the point.

I​t was tedious to carry on, the amount of real data, information or knowledge is a small percentage of the course, It gives a blink of what it would become but it was hard to advance on...

Very informative but I wish all parts had a speaker. The videos were great but the reading, I would like to have audio for it as well. I tend to gloss over words when its too many to read.

It seemed to me the idea to present various project management methodologies, normally these courses focus on PMP, but in this introduction we could have concepts of various methodologies
