Good intro to Bayesian Statistics. Covers the basic concepts. Workload is reasonable and quizzes/exercises are helpful. Could include more exercises and additional backgroung/future reading materials.

Great course. The content moves at a nice pace and the videos are really good to follow. The Quizzes are also set at a good level. You can't pass this course unless you have understood the material.

It would be much better if there was a more sufficient introduction to the various distributions used in the course.

Very informative as an introduction to concepts, but nowhere near the deep dive I'm now interested in taking.

Too much theoretical than practical applications. No need to give both R and Excel videos.

Would have liked more problem solving and real-world application examples.

Overall, it's Ok. but the explanation is too short and incomplete.

better to come up with more examples and more mathematical details

For some derivations, the explanations are too sparse.

I get lost a bit too often.
The teacher sometimes explains easy concepts and omits the difficult ones (e.g. exponential distribution is explained as "for example if you are waiting for a bus that comes every ten minutes" and then he tells you how to compute expected value and moves on, but he does not say WHAT IT MEANS - is it the probability that I will meet an oncoming bus? is it probability of waiting ten minutes for the bus? is it the average waiting time? is it average number of buses that come every hour? - but there is detailed explanation of what A squared means in lesson two (!))
The teacher often makes me confused as to where he got the numbers he is plugging in the formula or what answer the formula gives.
But I take it as a challenge and I intend to finish the course despite all of that. Sometimes it is fun to decipher the mystic equations. And maybe it is me, maybe I was not born to be a statistician. Maybe there are people that find this stuff easy and understand it right away.
I really like the quizes. They are HARD.
One last thing: Wearing white shirt and using white marker makes it impossible to read what he writes. But I take it is part of the challenge ;-)

It's alright because it gives you an overview of what is covered in a Bayesian Stats class, but the material is presented quite poorly and I had to do a lot of second hand reading to answer the questions. It is not particularly enlightening even and the formulas are presented without proper grounding, context, and intuition. I can recommend this only for dedicated self-studiers who already have some sort of grounding in Bayesian reasoning.

Some matters were just given formulas and there was a lack of practice. The course should cover less materials or be longer to be effective in teaching.

it was an okay course, I liked that they used R occasionally in the course, but I did not like how the concepts were discussed

Not very much in depth and does not offer complete lecture notes, which are necessary for answering the quizzes...

There should be more focus on understanding the equations. The R and excel videos were incredibly blurry.

I would have given this course a zero rating if I could have. The worst online course I had so far. There is no intuition of the subject provided. The instructor just looks like reading from a text (like a robot) and write some equations without enough explanation. There are many Youtube videos available for free that explain concepts way much better than what is available here. Don't waste your time. Reading a book and watching those Youtube videos would help you more.

I have studied some Bayesian Statistics before. I feel like the materials itself is not sufficient for entry level, and will actually confuse some of the learners. Anyway, this is just my two cents. :)

I was hoping to get more intuition on bayesian statistics, but I couldn't. Hence, I think I am gonna forget what I have learned in a very very short time.

The course only gives a lot of equations and formulas without explaining why this process should be done
