I highly appreciated the interviews at the end of some weeks. I am currently trying to transition from a research background in Systems/Computational Biology to work professionally in deep learning :)

I have learnt a lot of tricks with numpy and I believe I have a better understanding of what a NN does. Now it does not look like a black box anymore. I look forward to see what's in the next courses!

Very good course. It is quite instructive to go through all the basic steps. It just not always clear on the programming assignment why the code has the given structure until the very end. Giving a bit more explanations a the beginning of the notebook on the global code architecture (even as an optional reading) would quite helpful.

I think the course is great but a bit easy.

The explanation is very concise and gives good intuition about deep learning provided learners have strong python commands. Otherwise, you have to spend more time to get understand the code in Jupiter notebook. The guideline in the worksheet is also necessary

A little bit too much spoon feeding, but good for the basics.

Me gustaria que la primer semana el curso fuese tan practico como en las otras semanas, asi se tendria mas fresco el fundamento matematico

The notations for some of the math is more complex than it has to be. Also, concepts such as back prop can be explained in a better fashion. Overall, the course is excellent. One suggestion would be to have math done via reading with explanations in the lectures.

Lectures were clear and very informative but some parts of the assignment were too straightforward.

Good overview. Programming assignments are seemed a bit confusing. It will be helpful if we have more printed materials for video lessons summarizing formulas etc.

Good course, a bit lacking on explanation in some areas and could have an option to skip some mathematics to those with more advanced knowledge. But a great introductory course and very good for revisiting old knowledge.

Actually, At the end of the week4 assignment, L_layer_model problem not worked as expected. There might be some problem.

Good int terms of basic understanding.
Hyperparameter selection and feature engineering is what i would like to see more in this course.

Thank you for your class,but i can't understand the reason of the back propagation.I will continue study hard to find it.

I think this course can afford to get deeper into the math behind neural networks. Andrew Ng is an amazing presenter, and the homework is really helpful to use as a guide to building my own neural networks.

Course was very simple for me, but there was one very good thing is that backpropagation is explained very nicely and if one did their assignment carefully than i dont think they will ever forget the logic and maths behind it.

Great course and great course materials. It's beginnings level, you go from a very simple structure to a L-layer NN, so you can actually understand a NN and its parameters and hyperparameters.
You can also tell they've put a lot of energy and dedication into homeworks - they are quite well structured and facilitate a lot students life.
My only (minor) negative comment would be just that: homeworks are quite easy, bc you can follow their advice and tips from the beginning and, if you get 'lazy', you don't need a lot to complete the tasks, even without having to understand exactly what you're doing. I guess you learn as much as you put an effort on learning ;)

For someone who is a beginner, this was an extremely helpful course. Period. Those who think it was "too simple", it might be the case that it was not the right level for them.
Here are some of the things that worked really well.
First, the assignments were well structured and built on each other. I really loved how scaffolded the notebooks were. Showing an estimate of approx. how many lines of code are needed is a great way to signal to the beginner in terms of how much work is needed. While the amount of code needed to write is small, you need to understand *why* you are writing it, and that takes mental effort.
Second, can't say enough great things about the forums. People are responsive and helpful. I have had more help in this forum than at my formal educational institute where the TAs are not either trained to help or don't want to help or both.
Here are some things I wish the course did better
First, I wish the connection to the larger picture was made through each exercise. One suggestion could be using modular blocks inside the notebooks to show the flow of data as you code. The flowcharts inside the notebooks can use a bit of work -- especially in matching them to the lecture slides.
Second, I wish we had a single page where all the derivations and formulae are provided. It was difficult to sift through different weeks and piece them together.
Overall, really great course! I recommend this keeping in mind the limitations that exist!

I enjoyed to do this lovingly created course. The only disadvantage: The programming assignments did not make me to learn, since I could event copy paste some lines. One does not have to think about much to get done and there has not been any tranfer task at all. That's not helpful for learning I think.

It was a good course, though I would like more emphasis on mathematics behind the deep learning. I guess that is what next courses aim to do, more mathematics and ways to optimize our deep learning models.
