course is very fast some of detail are less

It was a disaster. The main link to be used for the project was not available to copy and paste. So the only option was to type letter by letter, but then Google Ads pointed out some mistakes, and that was because the Rhyme's keyboard is not 100% synchronized with the user's keyboard and even the keys are released, it didn't work and it doesn't work. In fact, a user shared the ink in question, I copied it and the action did not reflect on the student's screen. So please, fix those bugs! And include the doc that contains the link! Thank you!

there is no help when you run into problems and there are charges on to your cc. Many students are asking questions about this, but no help!!! I cannot complete the course and it is very disturbing. Why have a forum with only students and no professor??

Didn't even bother to go through the whole course after seen she's opening a document with a code that came out of nowhere (she didn't even try to explain). Totally disappointed. Not recommended. 👎

It was awesome, i learned a lot of hand on skills materials that i will be able to use and start creating Ads for company, I would to suggest a class on facebook Ads as well, if it can be possible. but the overall materials was easy to use, i learned how to set up a whole google Ads, how to navigate through the settings, and also which Ads is appropriate with sales, lead or website traffics, which is really cool. my time was valuable, i will keep on practicing and apply to company that are looking for marketing Ads experts to showcase my talent through this new certificate i just earned. Thank you!

It's very helpful. I had no idea about Google Ad-words and how it worked. How ad campaigns run. I was searching for a hands-on experience and I got it here.

NOTE: The double screening can be a bit of a problem for you. However, open a new window not a tab and enable the video to play when window is inactive from the settings option. So, when she speaks, you can follow it with a better view.

Good Luck!

Coursera helps to increase optimization skills and they increase a eye q level To begin, I recommend taking a few minutes to explore the course site. Review the material we’ll cover each week, and preview the assignments you’ll need to complete to pass the course. Click Discussions to see forums where you can discuss the course material with fellow students taking the class.

I just started my job of digital marketing which is much related to Google Ads. This course helped me a lot in basic understanding of how Google Ads works. The reason I am satisfied with this course is I could grasp the knowledge in such a short time. Many thanks to the instructor and Coursera team!

The information was helpful, it was comfortable to take on a new subject/skill with the instructor. The only problem I had personally was the screen size, when using that side by side workspace. No problem with the Google Ads class itself, it gives you a comprehensive introduction to Google Ads.

Very practical guide. Good addendum if you have a plan in your head, this how-to helps you where to click in the software (=learning the mechanics). First do the official Google Digital Marketing Academy and then the hands-on here! The workspace (Rhyme) is fine to work in.

Great course for Beginners. Now I am feeling in a better shaper to a new tasks in my job. For sure it helps a lot. The information, the video, and the quiz are too clear. The teacher has a great attitude and a good pace to teach the course.

Good tutorial for beginners; though, it would help more students if there were more examples for each campaign type and sample data for analytics. Thanks Ishita for this video tutorial. I can get started in creating google Ads.
