Really really REALLY enjoyed this course! The instructor does a masterful job of going from simple examples and building up complexity in a very logical and thorough way.

After completing this course you will be able to use Apache Spark to build ML models (e.g., Linear Regression, Gaussian Mixture Model, etc.).

So far the questions and quizes seem unrelated to machine learning. The videos are poorly set out, with breif explanations and the whole thing seems rushed.

Apache spark is great and powerful but the lectures are not clear and long.

The course is interesting but I think a few things could be improved.
For instance, some code examples from the videos are outdated because of a newer spark version. The video was edited to mention that the github repo was updated but I was unable to find the updated code.
One (maybe more?) of the videos was done in a car; It makes the whole thing feel unprofessional even though the teacher's skills far exceed the requirements for teaching this course.
As others have mentioned, the teacher's accent can be a bit difficult to understand at times but to me, this does not affect the quality of the course. The teacher always seems interested and is smiling most of the time which might seem unimportant but it still sets a positive mood for the lectures which is great.
All in all, the course is interesting and it provides a good introduction to Machine Learning using Apache Spark.

Too superficial. The python example codes are very cryptic and not very well commented. The programming videos are very difficult to follow because the instructor is literally reading the code instead of explaining it.

Video is outdated. The course material is not structured properly. Lack of explanation on the code. The code reference is confusing.

There should be more details about Apache spark and some examples

a very low quality course, not recommended. 质量很差的一个课程，讲师带严重口语也就算了，连英文字母有时候都缺失或者对不上，作业质量也很差，不建议上，看的累

For a intorductory course it is very good. Do not expect anything too advanced.

In very simple and crisp way a lot of details are covered about Apache Spark. Very good way to start.

Course can be improved by focusing more on ML algorithms.... Explanation of GBT and Random Forest was not provided. But they were used.

Very Good, but I think the course needs more challenging exams

Demotivating course, the worst I studied on Coursera. If not "AI Engineering" path I would have dropped it

A very good course and will recommend it for anyone who has Apache Spark experience and wants to get an introduction to ML lib and machine learning in Apache Spark, the assignment submissions need some work but other than that a very good introductive course.

The Videos/tutorials need to be updated for the new pyspark. Some are still using python 2 which reaches end of life in a month!

I should not comment the way how this lecture has been carried out... HOWEVER, it does bring actual tooling skills and makes it interesting to use those instruments for real life situation. Highly recommended. Make your model maybe can be your crystal ball.

Learned several new skills. Instructor did an excellent job of explaining the concepts starting with the notion of big data and showing us how to run ML algorithms on apache spark and use of pipelines.

Excellent course! All the explanations are quite clear, a lot of good quality information provided from amazing teacher. Additionally, response times for any question is very fast.
