Very good overview of ML. The GraphLab api wasn't that bad, and also it was very wise of the instructors to allow the use of other ML packages. Overall i enjoyed it very much and also leaned very much
The course was well designed and delivered by all the trainers with the help of case study and great examples.\n\nThe forums and discussions were really useful and helpful while doing the assignments.

I did not like the classes, specifically. The videos are monotones and not straightforward. I have been trying to unenroll from it, but the button does not work. Also, trying through the 3 dots on MyCoursera Page does not show the Uneroll option. Therefore, I will rate it with one star because it does not allow me to unenroll from it and these kind of problems are quite common with Coursera.

Not focusing on Basics of Machine Learning rather to focus on specific software application on Turi . Unable to complete the quiz which is based on non-user friendly Turi software installation.
Please be generic and encourage to use Jupyter Ipython notebook to use common libraries to focus on Machine Learning basics not to promote Turi or specific software to complete the course
Самое трудное это заставить работать используемые в этом курсе библиотеки. Дошло до установки виртуальной Убунты, и то оно так и не заработало на 100%. Да, можно использовать их колабные ноутбуки, но в чем смысл изучать материал на каких-то левых непопулярных и кривых библиотеках, я не понимаю. Надеюсь, что опыт работы с фреймами можно будет применить где-то еще, кроме их курсов.

Absolutely no help from the course moderators regarding how to run a program, which they've made it over complicated. I've been using Python for a while now and this is not even remotely student friendly, which has forced me to discontinue the course since I am unable to do the assignment required for the assessment.

The tools needed for the course were impossible or nearly impossible) to get set up. The discussion forums were full of users struggling and others offering very complex and ways to try, yet none of them seemed to work. I spent about 5 hours failing to install the tools and finally quit the class.

Sorry， I have to give it up and provide a low rating. I think the materials provided are not connected and make me lost. Especially, I can not download Turicreate on my laptop and have to use Colaboratory. So I learn graphlab and try Graphlab on Colaboratory. All three things make me dizzy.

i wish i read the reviews before starting this course... it is well explained but the fact that i am unable to load a dataframe due to being on windows is mindboggeling and greedy from the creators of the course (that happen to be the creators of this package). just aweful

Please mention that users need to use turicreate and sframes etc "only" to complete the assignments.
it is wrongly mentioned that one can complete assignments using any tool but very first assignment is forcing us to use turicreate and sFrames !!

Not worth doing. Notes are insufficient to help install packages needed to follow the course. Many had posted on the same error message but there has been no guidance. Support is very poor, Course materials are outdated. Not recommended.

Uses Outdated graphlab. Very difficult to follow the instructions. Tried using the turicreate but its very problematic. The courses should ease of use tools rather than something outdated.
by Kyle D•
The software was so difficult to install. It did not seem worth it to learn a completely new way. Unfortunately, I dropped it because the case study approach looked interesting.
by Ruth P•
Couldn't even get started. Very disappointed that the links to the software required are so out of date and there is no help. Want to un-enroll but can't do that either.
by Sahil K•
Software installation was a big trouble and took nearly month as this course was in graphlab, but we need to use turicreate or other toolset.
by Harry W•
You'll spend more time trying to get the correct versions and plugins working than you will studying. The course needs updating.
by Konstantinos V•
Started this course with great enthusiasm but end up with frustration on being unable to install Turi Create with python 3.10.
by Bharath K V•
The course is very very confusing. Old material without updating to the latest format. No clear instructions. Half baked.
by Muhammad A A J•
This course is very old and waste of time because libraries used in here are not available for new versions of python.
its very very hard to setup jupyter notebbok and installing turicreate ,also takes a lot of efffort in practical quiz
by Marius M•
Unable to install turicreate. No troubleshooting instructions, only a link to a blog post that offers little help.
by Florea G A•
Turicreate installation is a hot stone. for that reason I'm not going to pursue this specialization.
by Bowen S•
poorly structed with questions & answers
the packages used for the course has been out dated
by Anoop B•
Terrible course. Poor presentation, unnecessary talks, clumsy video and outdated content.

A waste of time trying to setup an obsolete environment that is no longer supported.
by Kailash H S N•

by Sudheesh R S•
No proper directions as to how to work on libraries to be installed.
