The week 4 content was very interesting and the whole course was executed excellently and the content was good enough to justify the course title.

As a non-IT professional I found the course was easy to understand. A little more detail would have helped me immensely.

It was very productive, and good experience, support is very helpful, no need to worry about any problem which you might face during process, connected to assignments mostly, cause it might be an issue when it comes to fair grading. So in overall I would definitely recommend it to anyone interested in this field, and I continue to complete all the courses I find interesting. Good job, Coursera!

I liked the videos and quizzes however i did not like the peer review projects. One of the speakers was a little hard to follow and understand. I will be looking for courses elsewhere.
