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.

Creo que está muy bien enfocado para personas con pocos conocimientos de programación y da unas nociones básicas pero muy concisas con las que puedes comenzar a trabajar.

Very clear, even though sometimes quick (you can always have the chance to get back). Enjoy the final assignment (a bit more of a clue on scraping would have been handy).

It gave a vision in terms of using python. It was successful both technically and practically. It was a very productive course. Thanks for the hard work of the creators.

Overall this course is great for the Python beginners. Though the final assigment is good, it could have been made little "better" by making it a "bit more" challenging.

I hope this course in the future provides more exercises that focus more on writing codes. Also, it would be even better if the videos show some real time code writing.

Good introduction of basics. The final, peer-graded assignment doesn't fully work, thus check comments on forums linked on the top of the course in case of any issues.

It was very easy for one who already have studied python before. It would be more fun if it would have been more difficult. But, overall it was fabulous experience.

although the learning materials are good, the labs should be at least explained thoroughly in simple terms and there should be step-by-step instructions in coding.
