I thought it was a great intro coming from my Architecture background and looking forward to the other classes. I did think the information was occasionally repetitive but overall it had a great flow.
This was a great experience. It gave the confidence to tackle such issues as Duration of Activity Schedules and many more. Learned a lot and course content will forever be my guide on future projects.

Very well organized and specific to the industry. Most of these topics are important on a daily basis in the Construction Industry and usually the only way to get this much information is from experience and while working on numerous projects so these courses were very helpful to increase the knowledge you already have or as an entry basis to whoever is interested in the field.

I enjoyed the CPM course. The course content is covers the maximum gamut of CPM. The presentation and the ppt presentation is very lucid. The faculties have the in depth knowledge of the subject and they have explained in very effective way. The initial set back of the quiz forced me to be attentive through out the course duration to capture the written and oral eplanations.

Ibrahim Odeh and the rest of the lecturers in this certification are very great teachers. There was not one moment where I was bored. Everything was easy to understand and it is so fun to learn the technicals and theory of what I do for a living. It strengthens my knowledge both on paper and on the field which makes me a better leader. Excited to do the rest of the course!

The course is overall well and efficient, however, the duration estimation lecture was far from enough to get you prepared for respective quiz, the lecture is superficial, the assignment is thoroughly detailed down to the nitty gritty calculations on duration estimations, I think they could do more to teach people how to properly estimate construction activity duration

Dr. Ibrahim Odeh, was capable to put a five weeks course that surpass many other courses of one year lenght, the mix of theory and quizes based on real experience of top notch professionals of the construction field was great! - I recommend this course for any project manager that want to walk a step further in construction management. Congratulations Professor Odeh !

The material presented is very useful, the speakers who present the material are also experts in the field. just me for subtitles there is still a little error in writing. about 5 to 6 videos do not provide modules presented for download. The downside of this course is that the material is less retail, making it rather difficult to combine the material with the other

Excellent pace, easy to pickup where I left off with quizzes immediately following each section. Course had more detail and minutiae than I anticipated, but I learned a lot. Guest lecturers are excellent.
I have one request, that slides and diagrams can be easily downloaded w/o the image of the lecturer. That would help students take better notes.
by Nassima C•
I highly recommend this course for everyone involved in construction field.
It offers a holistic overview of construction management and provides valuable details. Nothing theoritical, every piece information is practical and will help you with all types of projects.
Every video is worth watching.
I only wish "Lean project" videos could be longer.

A great introduction to construction management. Covers every topics in as much detail as they could in such a short time. It's needed to take the other courses of construction specialization to get practical knowledge.
Great teachers, each of them specialize in a subject and discuss their topics in detail and with enthusiasm.

The Construction Project Management course was very well put together and informative.
There is a lot of information that covers a broad spectrum of Project Management.
How Coursera handles their web site and peer reviews leaves a lot to be desired. Very difficult to maneuver through the class reviews and forums etc.
