Thank you for this short beginner's course. I loved the way you have explained it in detail as being very new and had very little knowledge about R programming. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

The best R tutorial i've come across so far. The course structure is sequencially well structured and the hands on practice platform and video tutorials are excellent

This course is very good for beginners who don't have any experience in R programming. The instructor taught steps by steps with very clear instructions. However, it is impossible to demonstrate everything in R programming in this course. So if you would like to know more than the basic steps or require studying statistic calculation of data, this course might not be suitable for you.

Had done some R before, this was a good refresher to the basics. The instructor makes a few mistakes during the course but corrects them as he goes but sometimes you need to watch out for the pop-up message to see the correction, which you might miss if you are typing in the RStudio console.

Definitly a great primer if you are beginning with R and Data science... I can't speak for everyone but I need to get hands on with something if I am going to truley understand what I am doing and this course helps you do that.

A good introduction to the very basics of R. The course itself is (I find) a little bit boring as it consists of just repeating what is shown in the video. A case study would maybe make it more fascinating! However, still a good project for total R beginners.

The guy explains very well each task, but it is unfair that you can access just 3 times to the Rhyme platform. Please change this to have an unlimited access and an unlimited time too.

Very low quality

Disappointed, unsatisfactory and a waste of time.

Pros: Well-structured for an introductory course. Cons: Absolutely awful method of teaching, difficult to comprehend and understand the accent, follow the teaching instructions as well as understand the basics. The instructor was not engaging at all and led me to take multiple breaks just to go through with it.

P.S: The Rhyme workbench and emulator is so glitchy.

I did not get enough time to practice on icloude space. And the reason I was slow because of the accent of the instructor.

I quit the courseproject prematurely. The instructor has a heavy accent and I had to turn on closed captioning to understand what he said. The explanation about several topics, like R factors, was inadequate. Sorry Coursera, but this is not the quality and level I'm used to in your courses.
