The instructor fails at explaining the reasoning and logic behind the code that he is providing. It almost feels like a copy and paste project rather than a project where you actually get valuable information understanding what' happening.

Doesn't teaches properly not even show how to run the program and not explained.

Interesting Project, but need more time to work with the code. Especially as you must set up your own computer system to work with different software libraries.

1. The virtual environment was horrible to use. The cloud was so slow I decided to code on my own computer. However, no matter how many times I closed it, so that I can view the instructional video in full screen, it keeps opening. It is very frustrating when I just want to watch the video. 2. The files are in a mess and it was difficult to find the file the instructor was looking at. 3. At the end, the end product called "finished_bot.py" the code in the virtual machine and the one the instructor was showing was different! 4. This tutorial is also outdated. Currently, we are using Python3.8 and above and Tensorflow 2.0. However, this tutorial is using Tensorflow 1.15 which requires a python version lower at 3.8. 5. The actual coding was rushed through and not explained properly - just brushed over in 1 line. This tutorial is not for beginners and I recommend some Python knowledge before attempting this. Overall, this was the worst experience I have had so far with coursera and will not be joining anymore such projects.

This is by far the worst presenter/instructor I've seen in any online tutorial. Nothing is explained even remotely well it's very clearly just copy-pasted from a mishmash of other tutorials, the slideshow is just random images taken from the Internet (I imagine the first result when Googling the thing being discussed) the code often doesn't work within the sandbox environment, the final code presented is totally wrong in some places but can be fixed in 1-2 lines with help from Google, there's unexpected jumps in the video where you can see they basically just cut out an entire 4-5 seconds of footage for some reason, the audio volume has an odd tendency to fluctuate, and the test has nothing to do with creating a chatbot but is basically a trivia game of some of the tidbits of information touched on in the "course".
This has completely destroyed any interest I may have had in the Coursera Project Network and is demonstrative of a total lack of quality control on the platform.
