Well structured course. Gives a good overview of the basics of cloud computing. couple of typos in the transcripts. will flag errors in future courses
Basic understanding of benchmark skills of Cloud Computing. If could share the combined slides of different lectures, could be better!

Not what I expected after the last two courses in the cloud specialization. A lot of the information has already been covered in the last two courses from a more detailed theoretical level. This is more of a non-technical level overview of some popular and some random cloud tools covered at a level that is not technical enough to gain anything from but in too much tedious detail to be consumable for the parts that are interesting. This course could be condensed into a few page tradeoff table of the services and applications covered.

As a developer I consider this a very poor course. It can be good for manager and business people to better understand what technologies are available these days, but that it. You can easily look at the syllabus, go to the wikipedia and read the pages on presented subject and you will get the same knowledge. There were no programming assignments, quizes and exams were not challenging at all and some questions were really confusing. I won't recommend it to anyone and it shouldn't be part of this specialization.

I've never had an instructor that was so clearly phoning it in. What's more, lots of the information presented about how the Cloud works is factually inaccurate, and no one has bothered to correct it. I strongly suggest that working professionals with even a basic level of experience with the Cloud (read: clearly more than the instructor) simply save themselves the aggravation.

I was expecting some hand-on programming or chance to work on the virtualisation techniques, it's only theories in this course which is of little use in outside world, companies need hands-on experience

I have never come across worse lecturers. I plodded through, because I had to. I pity the students who have to take their classes at Urbana Champaign

It was really focused on high level concepts of different technologies, the level was really basic. No details have been served.

Very boring and not very illustrative
