Great course for those trying to understand how ro analyse and process text data. It has the right amount of tools to help you understand the basics of information retrieval and search engines.

A great overview of text retrieval methods. Good coverage of search engines. A longer course will cover search engine better (remember this is a 6 weeker)

The presentation of the lectures is done quite poorly:There is a constant humming of the presenters computer on most of the videos. The examples given are all very specific and concepts are not explained themselves in detail.The quizzes are not very well adjusted to the presentations in that sometimes tiny details of mentioned information are asked and on the other hand non straight forward transfers from the lectures are expected.Also in one of the quizzes topics from the next week are asked and the problem has not been fixed since 5 months even though there are heavy complains in the forums.

The week 4 quiz has some questions from Week 5 material causing a low grade for my week 4 quiz. I've asked to have my week 4 grade dropped in the week 4 discussion fourm since it was based on a flawed quiz. Please read the forums and reply to everyone who had issues with the week 4 quiz and the honers project errors. No one seems to respond to these issues on the fourms except for other students agreeing that the week 4 quiz is flawed and that the honors section also has errors.

This course is only based on the theoretical side, and it is very hard to understand if you do not have a strong CS or math background. The professor also used abnormal verbal language to demonstrate his idea, I do not recommend this course.

The quiz contains questions of topics missing in the lecture of the same lesson. The presentation of the information has a lot of room for improvement. Hope the course continues to improve.

In Week 1 and 4 questions to pass the assignment are coming from one week later....
So the material provided every week to pass does not fit the assignment questions.
Should be improved.

This is not very informational whatsoever. After some sifting, I did not find this course to be useful. I would rather complete a formal course on the topic at the university itself.

I do not like pure theory. I wish to find more useful thing about manipulate docs.
