Content may be at time interesting, but it's lean, it lacks depth, you'll get only the basics, almost no example.

Week 4 is the worse. Dull and Boring. Just powerpoint bullets read loud to you. Except maybe for the last 2 videos which are actually ads from two FinTech startups.

Discussion forum is not really active, and mostly not interesting.

You can't do quiz if you did not buy the certificate (which won't have any value, given the vagueness

This course which is being offered is pretty old and some modules are older than half a decade. This is not something I would like to pay for. Coursera is making me pay for such old and outdated stuff in this fast changing world.

Highly disappointed with coursera for not utting up updated course contents.

US centric course (without a word of warning that it is non global one).
