About the Course

The art of uncovering the insights and trends in data has been around since ancient times. The ancient Egyptians used census data to increase efficiency in tax collection and they accurately predicted the flooding of the Nile river every year. Since then, people working in data science have carved out a unique and distinct field for the work they do. This field is data science. In this course, we will meet some data science practitioners and we will get an overview of what data science is today....

I throughly enjoyed the course and the fact that everything was explained thoroughly. I always enjoyed Dr. White's personal experience with Data Science as well as other Data Scientists point of view.

Very learning experience, I am a beginner in DS, but the instructors in this course simplified the contents that made me I could easily understand, tools and materials were very helpful to start with.

It is too superficial. It should go deeper into techniques and best practises, even being a non-technical course

It was just as intro to what is data science just definitions but still a good course for introduction purpose.

Did not learn very much. Could be more applied and maybe jump into some coding or statistical theory already!

i expected to be more knowledge in the course but it is some kind of introducing lectures more than a course

This course provides an abstract overview of what is data science. Overall a good course but a small course.

An "OK" course that provides a very high level of very generally speaking terms of data science / big data.

very basic overview- good for those with zero knowledge but redundant for those with even just a tiny bit

This was extremely basic. we got to learn what we already knew of data science. This was very generic.

It is just the beginning of a long journey to become a data scientist.

It is very brief and to the point.

Okay if you are completely new to the area, but doesn't add much new if you have some awareness already.

A bit simple and repetitive. It works as an introduction, but it won't add any value to your knowledge.

It is a good introduction to Data Science, but in my opinion did not have to be an individual course.

This is a very basic introduction, but as it is billed for beginners, that should not be a surprise.

There was only theoretical knowledge. There should be more about the implementation of data science.

Fairly redundant while also being informative. It's mostly worth the few hours it takes to complete.

I think it would be better if the content is well-organised. Sometimes there exists repeat content.

Good motivational course, but not that much proper scientific / analytical / quantitative content.

Nothing that I could've just learned from reading a Wikipedia page on Data Science was introduced.

The content is good but the navigation of the website is not very good and is not very intuitive.

I think the sir is giving half knowledge about the topic. Like some more explanation is required.
