Very good course on Social Networks, and also a hard one even for graduate level. Generally assignments are not too tough but fully understanding all the concepts take lots of extra readings.

Great survey course for social network analysis. Dr. Jackson's lectures motivated me to buy the book, and I hope to come back to this course later to work more on the optional parts.

I loved everything so far, the quiz questions are well selected, but, I believe there are some notions which should be explained further mathematically.

This lecture is a Great Introduction to Economic Networks.
Good point 1, many applications to economics research.
Good point 2, nice intuitive explanation to the notion of networks.
Note that MIT open course about Network can be complementary to this lecture.

Excellent course. The labs are the best. Pajek and Gephi will be handy for network graphing and analyzing data. Thank you Professor Matthew Jackson. Your work is very good for reference.

Good introduction to the topic! Assignments were helpful as well as optional lecture videos.

A very comprehensive course, taught in a very engaging manner by a top-caliber researcher and professor. An improvement would be adding a separate problem set for each lecture topic, to more thoroughly test specific understanding immediately after the teaching. Also, some of the Gephi instructions were not quite clear enough.
Getting Prof. Jackson's book as a companion to this course is very useful.

Without previous knowledge in math, this course is not very useful.

Great course! Teacher gave very good explanations. Examples are very useful. I would love to take a more advanced course of social and economic networks.
