This is an introductory course in the use of Excel and is designed to give you a working knowledge of Excel with the aim of getting to use it for more advance topics in Business Statistics later. The course is designed keeping in mind two kinds of learners - those who have very little functional knowledge of Excel and those who use Excel regularly but at a peripheral level and wish to enhance their skills. The course takes you from basic operations such as reading data into excel using various data formats, organizing and manipulating data, to some of the more advanced functionality of Excel. All along, Excel functionality is introduced using easy to understand examples which are demonstrated in a way that learners can become comfortable in understanding and applying them.

The training provided by Dr. Sharad is easy to follow and learn. Bravo and Thank you.\n\nThe level of difficulty from the quiz and the final task is just right and it is making us to think creatively.

The course has a lot of potential, but some questions in the quizz are very ill posed, not clear, and ambiguous. I am surprised that this course has passed the usually high quality barriers of Coursera. The course would benefit greatly from well structured and clearly defined questions in the quizz. Either a little bit more text explaining what the questions is looking for or a short example.

This is just an Excel basics course. But the word Data Analysis misguides, as if this is at some advanced or at moderate level. Those who have working experience in excel may not find this course interesting or may not get much of new learnings. It teaches about some commonly used features in excel. Thats it! This has nothing to do with data analysis.

Consistency between what you learn in the program and what you are quizzed on needs to be checked. Also there are errors in calculations on scores (ie/ I answered 8/10 questions correctly so should be 80% but I was given 70%) is brought up frequently in the discussion forum but does not seem to be addressed.

lessons are very draggy. exercises prepare data very cleanly at hand for you, does not let you simulate real working conditions where you need to know how to prepare data (e.g. what columns i must have etc). does not teach you the thinking bit behind these exercises.

The course is very slow paced. It should be clearly mentioned that the course is for total beginners. I did not expect that lecturer will spend time on so basic information like adding/deleting/renaming various sheets within one excel file...

It would be helpful to provide more examples. The tasks on the quiz did not always reflect example problems, especially in the week 3 section. It would also be more helpful to have more practice problems to attempt with feedback.

I learnt some new skills but there is a serious disconnect between the teaching materials and the assessments, the assessments are significantly harder and you are not given any opportunity to practice before the assessment!

The audio quality of the course is extremely poor, can barely hear the professor. Please check assessment of Week 2, I have tried multiple methods and got the same result however it keeps showing as incorrect.

The lecture delivery is not bad, But the quiz exercises are unnecessarily difficult and sometimes, totally unrelated to the lecture. it makes it difficult for one to move to the next stage.

It's too simple, and the courses are kind of redundant. Maybe it is proper for those who have never used Excel. For other people, the courses are too easy.

Pretty basic course with a lot of 'dead time' not really learning anything about Excel. Tutor should consider a few more advanced and useful topics.

Very basic course, course certificate has no university logo on it. Not worth the money.
