This course is excellent when it provides the citations very fit to theory. And I learned it in well organized structure of knowledge. Thank Prof. Glady and his team very much.
The course contains the in-depth knowledge which helps to learn more about the business analytics. The assignments will test your presentation skills and creativity skills

This course in general is quite interesting for business analysts: you will learn several easy but efficient data analysis tricks and techniques, and business outcome is always in the focus, which is very important. Data driven analysts quite often forget about business, so it will help you to focus more on business outcome. But there are multiple problems in this course. *sigh* First one is very low quality of the R code. Looks like instructors never heard about code style, good naming practices and code organisation. Code is written by amateur analyst, all the data sets will be named "data" in the same script, code is messy and inaccurate. You teach the people, show them how proffesional code look like in R! Second one -- poor quality of the queezes in the course -- they all require trivial -- you just need to correct the R script to pass. It doesn't bring any addititional value to the material you've just learned. And third drawback -- small amount of real students and a lot of cheaters, who submit random stuff and copy-paste your work after that. I see it for the first time on coursera(

The R code examples provided were the most useful part of this course. The lecture material was so high level that I found it difficult to watch and walk away with a clear sense of what was learned. To be frank: I would have quit this class if not for the recitation material. Even the capstone assignment was framed in such a strange way that I had to walk away for a week to figure out what to do with it. And the number of course participants was quite low, which may for a stressful time getting the last assignment graded. And since the grade was based on peer review of highly subjective assessments of a single slide presentation, it also made the final grade appear haphazard.

This first course is good, but it unfortunately reminds me of the courses back at the tech.uni. I graduated from. The professor has a terrible accent, the assistants doing the calculation exercises are far from inspiring, and the exam's instructions are vague to say the least. And feedback about this seems of lesser interest, like I'm just a student and cannot know better than the professor.
But take this first course and get it over with, because after it comes course 2 that is so much better. The lecturer is top notch and he does his recitals himself with lots of additional info as he goes through them. It's one of the best online courses I've had on the subject.

Overall, the content is very useful and interesting. Maybe I would suggest the use of standard/international business English terms and definitions in the course, that would definitely improve the quality of lectures. I had the impression that they were using a literal translation from the French into English. For example, they used words as: "providers" instead of "Suppliers"; "past data" instead of "historic data".

I think it would be good to have an introduction to R Studio. The course was short and informal from my point of view. Instead of watching a lecture and then a demonstration a single video with both the lecture and demonstration would be better.

Lectures and Recitals were good, easy to understand. Discussion forum was a deserted place with little sharing. Would be nice to have a more open community. Overall, pretty good. Looking forward to the next courses.

Arguments brought up are shallow

I didn't think that it was made clear enough that you needed prior understanding of different topics. For example, you would certainly need prior knowledge of analytics and of coding in order to be successful in this course.
I found that the structure was quite disjointed and that you are not given enough information to complete the assignments.

Not very like this course... especially those videos are introduced by female speaker....we dont have this kind of software, can't understand and practice it....
Poor presentation. Unclear points. Not a detailed walk through about the specific tool.
