This is a great starter course for data science. My learning assessment is usually how well I can teach it to someone else. I know I have a better understanding now, than I did when I started.

It is a very good course even if you are familiar with some aspects of data science work. If I have to make a suggestion, I would remark the importance of design skills during a data product,

Great course for somebody who does not know anything about data science. When doing this specialisation there should be credit for those that did the other data science specialisation

Nice overview for those of us unschooled in the language. Syntax of the notes and text is in need of major editing-proofreading.

The courses in this specialization are - in my opinion, excessively short.

I want to give 3.5 stars but there is only option for 3 or 4.
Given that it's geared more towards wanna be managers in this field. I would have expected lot of case studies, and links to additional material for individual reading plus a mini write up or a project at the end.
For MOOCs to compete with a degree program or an onsite instruction few of the things I think that are needed are
Interviews with industry practitioners which is a big plus.
interviews/postings from people with similar background as the 90% of the MOOC students of this program who made it... this motivates the students from dropping from the middle of the course/specilization programs
links to additional articles that the students can read at leisure
writeup/project as assignments that the students can pursue and publish (not necessarily for grade but as a mind jogger)
One more thing that I think should help (not specific to this course) is that the student with the best grade should be offered one free course and think this will motivate the students to complete the courses.

It provides a quich shot on data science, but the way it presents is not so interesting.

Some topics are too high-level. But a great team delivering the content (as always)!

Interesting course but structure was a bit odd I thought, it was not clear why so much time was devoted at the outset to the difference between Machine Learning and data science.

A good introductory overview of data science. Grounds you on what you can & cannot do with data science. I find defining the question really impactful. Teachers were enthusiastic and the brevity of the course gives it good appeal for beginners who want to "get their feet wet".

Good, simple, straightforward, and applied. It starts to introduce you to the language and platforms of data science, but it is most definitely not a standalone course if you want to be conversant in the field. Really just a "taster" to get you into the specialization.

The teachers spoke really fast with which it became difficult to grasp the words. Overall it was good.

Very preliminary, most of the course don't have a PPT or handout. May be helpful if you know very few about data science.

More lectures but each lecture should be shorter. More examples for each topic would be good.
However it is a crash course, so it is more of an overall description of Data Science, which also gives you suggestions to enhance your knowledge in other courses
