it becomes easier wand clearer when one gets to complete the assignments as to how to utilize what has been learned. Practical work is a great way to learn, which was a fundamental part of the course.

The syllabus of the course takes you in a roller-coaster ride.\n\nFrom basic level to advance level and you won't feel any trouble nor hesitate a bit.\n\nIt's easy, it's vast, and it's really usefull.

Informative yet some of the videos contain errors and the final assignment requires a lot of time for just signing up to various systems to be able to complete the task

Easy introduction, Week 5 assignment is poorly integrated and will cause you to spend a large amount of time just uploading and sharing your dashboard to the IBM cloud

Good content but a real hassle using their notebook for the code. Also, I felt the final project had very little to do with the coursework from the previous 4 weeks

Beginner course, quick overview of Python constructs, in my opinion not suitable for experienced programmers who know other languages and want to learn Python.

Badly outdated and full of confusing typos, lazy display production, and useless quizzes. Luckily, I already knew all of this stuff before starting the course.

The lab has to tie more into the coding part of Python rather than the theory and basics of it. Took awhile for me to grasp it with the help of other books.

The pre-work and video modules do not prepare you for the final assessment well enough. Lots of external videos and conversations within the forum required

This IBM Watson an the whole ecosystem is not documented well and too complex for this beginners course. This course has taught me to avoid IBM software.

I found the course not suitable for some one with no knowledge about data science . Some of the course material was not for someone with no experience

Assessment was more to do with publishing on IBM Cloud rather than Python. Time consuming trying to clarify instructions rather than learning Python.

Theory, practice, evaluation: video, lab, quiz - nothing unnecessary, straight to the point. Great! But the final project was very difficult for me

The course was going OK, then in week (4) they started going very fast with little explaining to do & the final test was not with the course level

As an educator with vast pedagogical experience, this course is really mediocre, doesn't provide comprehensive understanding of the topic

A majority of the labs are overwhelming and do not coincide with class instruction. Make it through and the final assessment is easy.

The course is smooth but the final assignment did not explain things properly and because of that, it is very difficult to complete!

I was pretty good until I got to week 4 and had to create an IBM Watson Studio Account and I was never able to complete that step.

The last peer reviewed assignment was way too difficult. There was a knowledge needed that wasn't taught in the previous courses.

buggy and too in-depth and complicated for this level. spent a lot of time debugging errors which for a newb is frustrating.

Needed more hands on questions and not the same ones as in the video.

Expected more from an IBM professional certificate.

Very confusing navigation and setup. Videos are rushed and extremely hard to follow, could've easily been twice as long.

Super basic content. If you have a minimum knowledge on python and pandas I do not recommend enrolling in this course.

Too many things and no real practice, students would need to practice a lot more to consolidate all the information.

Very, very basic course. Mainly a marketing tool for IBM Cloud. If it would've been free it would've been worth it.
