It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

Great Primer for what Data Science is about. It also provides the infrastructure of tools needed. This was what I was after, a way to provide other data scientist hardware and infrastructure support.

The video content is great, but it tends to have zero relation to the content tested in the quizes.

Course doesn't seem to be of much use. Was not much informative. Only some information is relevant.

It was pretty good, but most of the information is rehashed briefly in the intro to R Programming

Course was good, nice introduction to data science and its branches. There was not much of depth.

Content is not found sufficient. Also order of the video series also requires some modifications

A necessary prerequisite for the other Data Science classes, but not really a standalone course.

I liked it because it helped me to configured the software that I will use in the next courses.

Good overview of existing tools but more information will be useful to dig into the data world.

I think maybe because I have computer science background, so I think this course is too easy.

I don't really think that this amount of information should exist as a whole separate course.

Good overview. But it is confusing for the first class when you have no idea about the topic.

some information was interesting but in general I don't think it was crucial for learning R.

If you don't know any thing about data science, good introduction, otherwise a wast of time.

A very simple course, focussed on installing the correct tools on your computer to learn R.

Too little material for 4 weeks. All this could've been written in a PDF instead of videos.

Overall the course content is good, but the power points are not engaging and interactive.

Very basic, may be a bit more use cases on Git would have been useful. But that's just me

Few content for an entire course. I think this one could be together with R Programming.

I am aware that this is the introduction to this topic but it was a bit long-drawn-out.

A good intro to the tools, but for anyone with prior programming experience unnecessary

Okayish course. This course will give you an introduction in RStudio and Data Science.

Too few activities for the time allocated. I completed this course in 4 periods of 2h.
