The designers of this course designed a final assignment that is way beyond the curriculum leading up to it, and judging from the discussion forums it gives everyone severe headaches to deal with it. They know of the situation, but rather than alter the assignment they just added new "lessons" that boil down to "Why don't you go read some more material in this other person's book about creating graphical elements? You'll be fine!" I am paying to take this course so I'm more than a little ticked off about this. Until they fix the situation you should take some other series of courses to learn about R programming.

This course was not good at all. Almost all of the information is a screen scrape from a book and peer-evaluated, so you may be better off just getting the book and going through it. Neither the mentors nor the authors ever participated. The assignments are poorly written and missing too much detail. Ending up bailing on the course and the final capstone as I'm simply not learning anything and the projects are too frustrating to work on.

Great gap between teaching and what is required to pass the course. Unnecessarily difficult.
The didactic material is not compelling.

The first three weeks of this course is ok. The last assignment is very poorly structured with uninformative instructions.

Some useful stuff, but you could be waiting weeks if not months to have your final assignment graded.

Obtuse and doesn't give enough practice opportunities
