This course was great, but some of the information seemed redundant throughout the readings and videos. Of course, I guess it can be argued that it helped reinforce the material.

A good course to kickstart a project management career. Fundamentals have to be clear and with Google this becomes easier to understand. Looking forward to the next one!

Appreciate the mix use of text, videos, experiences and quizzes. Would appreciate if experiences can be more detailed and maybe even from outside Google, if possible.

Very brief and simple content to understand. Video presentation is excellent and clear. Reading content seems to be bit boring. But assessment methods are great.

In the sections with video, the middle panel hasn't had a scroll to go down and up in the video transcript, making it very difficult to navigate and take notes

Overall, the concepts are well explained and the course is very informative.

I wonder if more real examples could be included to demonstrate the concepts?

As a foreign (and dyslexic) student I found sometimes tricky some rephrasing etc (especially during tests)... Maybe it's Just me anyway! Thanks a lot!

I like it. It's pretty broad. I LOVE the UI. My horrible ADHD brain loves the bite size chunks of work you do. Thanks for the opportunity to do this.

Tasks are too easy, I've had trouble with few of them, for the foundation course I think it's fine, but difficult must increase over the next phases.

The presentation was very excellent, the sound and the recording are clear, but it needs translation into Arabic to understand some of the new terms

I'd give it a 4 and a half stars it wasn''t perfect because I could keep notes on the reading and such but it was very easy to follow this.

The fundamentals are very good, only that they always indicate that later we will see more details and in the end they do not present them
