I had read about the different agiles methodologies out there but It was until I took this course that I could "digest" them and internalize how to chose the right one for me and how to apply them.

What other way to learn and understand Software Processes and Agile Practices than to register to Software Product Management at the University of Alberta, Canada.\n\nI rate the course 5 star.

The videos could have more figure explain what is talking about, for example de diagrams of "Task" in the first week I found it really illustrative.

course was very good introduction on various agile processes. Requires more actual practice to know how to use these methodologies in real.

Videos are too big. It would have been better if the videos are divided on Processes. Lets say Waterfall model, V-model and Sawtooth model.

I didn't like the amount of memorizing content. Prefer more practical and the implementation tips rather than theory.

Quiz at the end was too detailed. Could have been broken down into smaller weekly quizzes.
