The course covers a lot of content and there is a lot of supplementary information that is part of the reading material and must be covered to get a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter.
Excellent Experience. Couldn't expect anything better. Both the instructors were cheerful throughout the duration of the course and made me build my colony on MARS. Thanks from Elon Musk as well.

I didn't liked this course, it was difficult to understand Hong.
I couldn't understand Hong :(

Well, this is not an in-depth course. Teachers would have done a better job but I suspect upper echleons of management may have wanted to make this course and advertisement gimmick! I can find much better and in-depth resources on Youtube.

Some decent information, but the stupid mars/bee theme makes each video about twice as long as necessary. We are professionals - don't talk to us like we're children. It's not funny; it's not charming; it's just annoying.

Difficult to understand instructors and material covered did not align to course test questions.

The course is not well structured. The first one was far better. Needs improvement.

Quizzed on content that was not presented until later in the lesson.

There were gaps in content given vs quizzes

Most of the instruction in this course (and the detailed knowledge needed for quizzes) comes from reading publicly available AWS documentation. The videos provide very little instruction, and there are no "labs" or tutorials. You might as well go to the AWS webpage and just start reading documentation-- this course provides no additional value.
by Anu K•
Coming from AWS Specialization Course-1, I expected more hands-on content. Moreover the lecturers are not clear. Even the subtitles are not accurate. Also some quiz were off topic. Literally doing this course only to earn Specialization certificate. :-(

Very diffuclt to understand Hong's accent ... half of the time goes in revisiting videos to understand
by Murat U•
Course materials and the quizes were totally mismatched

I learned very useful concepts and read great documentation that allowed me to increase my understanding of how a well-architected solution should be designed and deployed.

This course could probably be divided into two courses. Much covered very quickly.
Also, PLEASE fix the video text. It was so far off the lecture text that it even made the class information incorrect or not make sense. I am a visual learner, so I read along with the trainers. These transcriptions were way off. Thank you.

I don't want to offense anyone and I understand that instructors were trying to be creative. It's my honest feedback: too many bees... It's very distractive, when I was trying to concentrate on some important things like security and it's hard to accept serious information from instructors in bee costume... Personally for me it would be more explanatory if you would use some near real world example instead of bee, honey, bee queen, buzz, etc...

I would have given 5 stars but Hong's English and her pronunciation has made me rate it three stars. While designing this course the concerned authority should keep in mind that the wrong pronunciation and accent matters a lot. I know Hong is not a native person and she doesn't have lack of knowledge but she really needs to work upon her English pronunciation. Apart from this the course was amazing and helpful.
by Colin K•
While the course contains a lot of information and a good overview for the services provided, there is little real world examples given for context for when and where they should be applied.
Quizes also don't always seem related to the topic provided or require that you search for the information as it was not provided either in the videos or the referenced notes.

Great content on the Reading documents. The videos were intended to be made more interesting with a little theatre on the parallel with bees and space exploration. In week 2 the theatre became a distraction. The Well Architected Framework was introduced in week 4 but questions came up in earlier weeks. Otherwise, a good course.
by Rashad K•
The course is very good and informative. Two things I didn't like, first that I actually got confused when they overused the bee hive and Mars examples. And secondly is that the course is 99% theoretical and there's no practical lessons
by ISHAAK M•
The course should have been more elaborate! The topics should have been covered with more detail! Some topics were scarcely covered! Demo weren't exactly through! Hong's accent at times was not understandable!
by Plamen K•
Too much theoretical knowledge and too less hands-on experience. At times, it was very hard for me to understand what Hong is saying, even the subtitles didn't manage to help, as they were incorrect.
by Judel V•
I had a hard time keeping up with the lectures due to Hong's accent. The transcriptions also for the videos (even subtitles) weren't also able to keep up most of the time.
by Sheldon R•
Some of the videos in this course were hard to understand, and the quizzes ask questions sometimes about topics that are not actually covered in the course.

Try to improve the explanation part and use examples for a better understanding of students.
by RITU J•
Content was little confusing. Even the quiz questions were out of content.
