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.

I thought this course introduced the topic of data science very well. I think I have a much better idea how to describe data science and common terms associated with the field (like machine learning).

Good way for beginners to decide if they want to do data science as a career, but poorly designed questions and grading system.

An introductory course light on information best suited for those who have not had any formal education beyond high school.

I believe this course was very long for what it is. I believe it could have been narrowed down to one video of 20 minutes.

I didn't expect this style of lecture. Still to be convinced. Mostly interviews. I think the approach should be changed.

This probably should have been integrated into Module 2. As a stand-alone it is lacking in much in the way of content.

Unnecessarily long, although the content is interesting. Quizzes and assignments are not really engaging or too easy

There is not much I have learned. Videos were not very informative; text provided in the courser were better off.

It was a decent overview of the subject, but I didn't feel like there was a whole lot that wasn't already obvious.

not that helpful and a bit boring to do the assign, but overall a nice overview f you know zero about data science

Doesn't cover any real material, you can move fast through the course, but I found it to be a waste of my time.

A very soft introduction to DS, and a massive waste of time. Hope the next courses in the series are better.

Too many videos, very little information and things to apply. I hope the next courses are richer in content.

It's more of an advertisement for data science than a course. That said, the professors are great speakers!

Too repetitive. You could probably just pick 2 of these videos and include in the beginning of next course.

I think that it was too general, only a week of introduction would have been good. Not the whole course.

This is just a general introduction. I hope more substance will be presented in the rest of the course

Some useful information is provided, but much of the time is spent in video which adds no content.

Fairly basic course...nothing really new if you're already immersed in some kind of data role.

it is a very basic course,only explain definitions and uses of data science.Nothing practical.

By Umair A

An entire 3 week course for just definition based interview videos. That was unsatisfying.

Not as deep a course as I thought, but understandably so for a (very) introductory course

Allot of information,which constantly repeating, also most of info too general and basic.

I didn't learned anything from it. It is just like a story of how great data science is

the course is very interesting, the quizzes are really bad, asking really dumb question

I expected more: examples with real numbers, methods, tools. At least an overview.
