This course is a excellent introduction to social network analysis. Learnt a lot about how social network works. Anyone learning Machine Learning and AI should definitely take this course. It's good.
It was an easy introductory course that is well structured and well explained. Took me roughly a weekend and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Hope the professor follows up with more advanced material.

I liked the lecturer and the tempo of the lectures, but this course felt a little light compared to the others in the specialization. The quizes were also good. But for me the course was a bit off topic. Given that, the various skills I learned in the other courses did come together in the final programming assignment. As a stand alone course I would give it four stars, but it gets three because it's required for the data science specialization.

The Course Deserves 5 Stars BUTThe fundamental flaw that felt absent in the last two courses of the specialisation was the in lecture Jupyter Notebook Demonstrations, it really helped the students feel in sync with the mentors.Please correct the same all the 5 courses of this specialisation deserve 5 starts :)

Videos are very distracting as there are many cutscene from the text to the instructor's face which is very disrupting for the flow of the lecture. Maybe overlaying his face on a small window on the corner will be better

This course feels more like an API summary of networkx rather than a real course on social network analysis. On top of that, the course uses the outdated networkx 1.11, while 2.0 has been out for over three years.

Some of the assignment organization could have been better, but otherwise the information was rock solid!

better if TA could prepare projects with updated versions of libraries

Useful but weaker comparing to Pandas or Scikit courses.

i like the way that lecturer teach.

Lecture Videos are good but it seems 0 efforts were put in the assessments. The auto-grader is especially a pain and you end up spending LOT of time around trivial issues with the auto-grader.
Aimerais avoir plus de temps et de conseils pour bien réussir..

The lectures and first three assignment are extremely superficial. Mostly they throw a bunch of definitions of metrics at you, give you some one-liners that will calculate specific metrics, then ask you to spit back those one liners (essentially no discussion of applications, etc). Then the fourth and final assignment is an interesting application of what you've learned but the grader is a NIGHTMARE. It is super buggy and your true task is to learn how the grader works, not how to write code and apply what you've learned about data science. I would not recommend this course unless you need it to finish the specialization.

Python and related libs are SUPER old. Some important codes used in this specialization were duplicated and you cannot get enough explanations even on Google. Moreover, auto-graders have lots of problems. I finished this specialization but I cannot recommend this.

not usefull course, out dated materials and it doesn't work on new library, what's the use of it if it doesn't work anymore and noone uses it?
