Great course for begineers!! I suggest this course to those who are new to industry and dont know anything! Concepts are very well explained! Thanks Coursera! Thanks NOVARTIS FOR SPONSORING THE COURSE
This course gives you a good overview of why six sigma and lean are necessary. It also gives you an understanding of how team dynamics play important roles and how brainstorming is an effective tool.

Course is poorly put together. Power point videos are walls of text that the narrator talks over (doesn’t address any text on the page), and doesn’t give you a chance to read. At the same time, the course is severely lacking in information. Information provided by the narrator doesn’t remotely cover information in the quizzes.
Also, I’m disappointed by how heavily the course relies on an outside text that costs $105 and is not included with the cost of the course. Save your money on this course and just buy the text. The course is useless.
The juxtaposition of the topic being covered vs. the quality at which they are providing the information is humorous.

The course is overly simplistic. It should only be recommended for students or people with no manufacturing experience. The text is out of print. Copies can be obtained via eBay but they are very expensive. I had better luck using "Six Sigma for Dummies." Last but not least, the videos are terrible. The slides are little more than bulleted outlines of what the speaker is saying. On top of that, the video streaming is buggy. I had constant problems. ( I am on a gigabit fiber connection and have no problem running other streaming services).

The course is putting too much unnecessary emphasis on memorizing unhelpful details rather than teaching practical skills. I don't find any value added in memorizing names of the founders of the principles or naming certain principles. This is a very old and unproductive and time consuming way of teaching the course. This could be condensed and take 1/4 of the time.

Course is very disorganized. Purchasing reading materials is required to complete the course. I purchased "Six Sigma: A Complete Step-by-Step Guide" instead of the yellow-belt-specific and it worked ok, but I've found self-study to be more constructive than this course. Videos are mediocre quality and very dry/boring.

Dropped after the first quiz of the 1st week. The logical result of non-synced slides / lectures + the instructor has a particular way of speaking. Contrary to other courses I took, this one leaves a strange after-taste. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

It provides very few information in the videos.
It looks the purpose of this course is you buy and read the book.
Videos are plain presentations with a lot of text, rather than visual information, without a presenter at sight.

i tried sample yellow belt exam after the course. this course is missing almost 80% of the stuff. simply waste of time. try other places.

Written text does not always correspond with Video.
old-fashioned way of instructing,
Instructor often just reads without any inspiration

This is such a poor course, the material is so confusing, there isn't any value added, the quiz has nothing to do with the course
