The teachers are informative and good. They explain the topic in a way that we can easily understand. The slides provide all the information that is needed. The external tools are fun and informative.
It is a great course! teachers explain everything with care. While providing lectures there are some popup ques that verify whether you understood that lecture or not. Overall, a great experience.

Not great quality of teaching. They made lots of assumptions about what you knew and could have explained things a lot more comprehensively. They also made a lot of mistakes In their speaking, and corrected them with numerous on screen corrections, which made It hard to get Into the flow of the class.

The course itself is good. Easy to hard problems. But the external tools which helps you in solving puzzles does not work. So, you will be unable to get through the course. This may be perfectly OK if you care about the grades, but not if you really want to learn.

I personally think the content could have been better structured and explained - I had to frequently refer to other materials on the internet to understand some of the concepts. Also, the programming task in Week 6 is not designed for a beginner such as myself.

I got stuck for ages on the last puzzle where you cut the squares, because it was not obvious that the middle square was not supposed to be counted as the shape - it looks like a grid of 9 squares.

A lot of sections were not explained really well. I had a hard time following the concepts.

The lecture is good however, it is difficult to understand because of the stuttering.
By Matthew E•
Some interesting ideas, but course delivery and content needs a lot of work.
i don't know how this course is going to help in computer scien

This course lacks of mathematical foundations.

course material was great

I can't figure out what direction the course is going, and what the end goal is each lesson or in general. I don't feel like i'm learning anything objective but that i'm just being presented with loose and abstract ideas, that can't be applied anywhere.
You need to watch the video a couple of times to understand what they are talking about and even then you don't know why we are learning to solve that puzzle, what can be taken away from it that is useful anywhere else.
ABSOLUTE WASTE OF MONEY!
There is no refund, so I cancelled my subscription but watch everyday anyways to get my money's worth, hoping to see if by chance i find something useful to apply in my programming, but it's fruitless. Even by the poll results from quizzes, you can tell, most people aren't following.
To think this is course is provided by a university. Youtube provides much better content for free and I just found a good course

week 2 to week 5 does not cover much, especially does not provide any clue how that could be used in computer science. It shows many ways to solve the problem but give zero direction how one could think about a new problem. When you have a new problem, you do not know which theory will apply. How should we think to decide which theory will work, this should be covered.

I'd give 5 star, i just wanna indicate a problem. After week 3, 3rd party puzzle app links are broken. I can't do exercises. I see '502 Bad Gateway nginx/1.18.0' error on my page. Apart from this, course is awesome.

Link for quiz tool did not work and wasn't fixed after a month. The order of the units seemed like it made little sense in my opinion. Some questions were worded poorly or crucial information was left out or vague

I did not get much from the course. while the material is interesting but somehow some instructors lack the ability to explain things very clearly.
The worst course I have ever taken. Concepts have been explained very poorly. Please please don't waste time on learning this course.
some of the topics were fucking bad the explanations could have been a way more clearer felt bad
By Andrea Z•
good content, but I have to say that is very and I mean very hard to understand the teachers
By William L H•
I'm not sure which is more bizarre, the topics being discussed or the quizzes.

I'd like to unenroll, but coursera does not show an option to do so!

By far the worst Coursera course, I've taken
I want to unenroll
