can reduce the number of peer graded assignments and replace with more practice challenges

the duration of videos can be cut into small pieces rather than 12 min long ones

The Peer grading is too cumbersome and inconsistent for my liking. I had to resubmit the same project a couple of times to get mine completed.

Other than that - Great

I am not a fan of the peer graded assignments. I fear that the grading is biased and based solely on the grasp of that learners understanding of the course content.

The material has been great and I really recommend keeping the glossaries handy as you progress, and for later reference in your current role or personal projects!

There were a lot of information covered on this course, so it's understandable that it felt a bit rushed and additional readings were necessary.

Es una herramienta muy completa, los recursos de apoyo son my bueno, pero creo que podría ser más concreto, tiene demasiada información.

Week 1-4 were great. Week 5 could have been summed up in 2 videos and 2 reading material course work. Week 5 was dragged unfortunately.

The fifth week of this course gets a little more rough than the previous ones. give yourself a little extra time to work on that one.
