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

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.
