facilitators for this whole programme have presented this so well, I would recommend the course to anyone wanting to start a career in project management as I believe they will be set up for success.
Loved the detail and pace of course. Extremely useful for new project managers and experienced project managers. Templates used in the course are very useful to perform daily job.

I gave it 4 * only because I felt excluded from teaching due to lack of reading materials. We all learn things differently (watching, listening, doing) I had to read the script to learn the course materials.

This part of the specialization is a bit lengthy, but course contents are excellent. Whole course is designed very well. Only thing need to improve is instructor's pace and delivery. Her sound dies out by the end of her sentences. Maybe because I am not a native english speaker thats why I had difficulty listening to her compared to other instructors in this specialization.

The course is too long and some contents is similar to previous courses, although the instructor speaking style is better than in course 3. Also, in the data visualisation part, the content is too shallow.
by Svitlana K•
Very boring in the middle! Absolutely impractical lectures about data, teambuilding and influence and no hands-on experience. The worst course in the specialisation so far.

The teacher is well-spoken and knows the material. However, the time-frames given are very misleading because there are so few readings to use as notes. It would be much easier and organized to provide a reading before each video lesson that summarizes the main topics and some of the more important details. Then, when a student watches the video they will have already read the material and can add to the notes they have printed out. This would help throughout the entire course. This course in particular had an enormous amount of extra notes, so the videos took much longer than predicted.

The information is great, the platform is terrible. I loved learning from Google PM's, I love the practice activities, and the scinarios the teachers used, but I hated the peer reviewd documents. I have ben an educator for 12 years prior to my career move and everything I know to be true about assessment was ignored in this entire 6 course program.
Peer reviews are incredably frustrating. One peer accesses your work and give you great marks with awesome feedback. The next person has trouble opening your document so they give you all 0's and you have to start again. This occured for most of my work in this program. I spent the last week of my "learning" begging my peers to review my work in the discussion boards. On average, I would say that I had to resubmit each one of my peer reviewd assignments 3 times. Then there was the posting in the discussion board and "returning the favor" by grading even more of my peer's work. This is not a system that works. With the course fee being what it is, I'd prefer to have my work graded by instructors.
Lastly, when I did finish a course I was prompted by Coursera to "verify my ID." I've been verifying my ID for completed coursrses for weeks now, every time I log in, and the promt never goes away. So I figured when I did complete the course, it would be a surprise what name appeared on my certificate. I've completed and I'm being prompted now to "purchase certificate." Clicking on that button, again, does nothing. I've been doing this for 3 days. I don't know how much the purchase is, who's name (if any) will be on it, or how long it will take to get it.
I begin a new career in July and I thought starting this course in late April would be enough time to complete it and provide my new employer with certification. I worked really hard to get the classwork done quickly, little did I know that the hardest and most time consuming part of the process was just getting Coursera to work.
I am a Google Certified Educator and I loved that program. I learned so much! I was really hopeful that this learning would be of the same quality. Sadly, it was not.

AWEFUL!! I COMPLETED THIS COURSE AND STILL HAVE NOT GOTTEN A GRADE!!! SHAME ON YOU!!
by Ihsan H•
This course is amazing, great presenter and the way it delivered its really understandable. To be honest, I am really really afraid when I enroll this course because my English is not really good enough. I am really really scared that I will not finish the course on time and just waste my money. But after follow the course , i do falling in love with this course. I even learn some new vocabularies during the course.
So many things i have learned from this course from the day 1 I join the Foundations of Project Management until the last course Capstone : Applying Project Management in The Real World. Thank you very much for Google and Coursera Teams for bring this course. Hope to see you in the next course. Keep up the good work!!!

I honestly believe this a very complete comprehensive project manager trainning program. I am very satisfued with the structure (coherent and sequential ), the teaching-learning methodology through a project example is very dynamic and interactive, videos are so nicely focused to their topics is so easy-interesting to get wrapped with the key points, reading material very concise yet detailed enough , homeworks are fun to do, you fill you are running the project in real life. The program and its way of teaching exceeded my expectations by far. Its been a very nice leaning experience looking forward to continue engaging in other certifications with google COURSERA platform. thank you very much to all google team!!!!

It was a great learning journey with amazing discoveries. All the six courses are well organised and having compact content. This course covers up both traditional/ waterfall & agile approaches of the Project Management. Its a complete package for learning PM Concepts and its application in real world. Peer-graded assignments & Capstone (Course-6) will provide you confidence in applying PM concepts. Thanks a lot to Coursera and Google & MUJ (Sponsor) for providing me opportiniuty to learn PM concepts exquisitely. Overall, it was a great learning experience.
by Ye H K•
In one word,... fantastic! It was super awesome to learn about project execution process and closing process in detail. I had so many surprises to learn ethical and inclusive leadership skill along the way. All contents and lessons are quite clear and really helpful to get insightful knowledge and techniques. Example activities are amazing as it's just like hand-on learning experiences. I love this course on Coursera more than I can say.
by Nawaf S A•
Actually I was surprised from a huge information that I've learned in this course specially the last section "Closing a Project", it's awesome course. The new good thing that inspired me is to be good project manager you have to share all information about the project as problems that you and your team have been faced during the project for any other new project will start a project similar to yours.
by Jianglin L•
This course is very inspiring and helpful for those who have done some projects but lack of knowledge to assess previous performance. For me, it's very important to learn how to communicate with stakeholders, agile management, and prepare for the necessary documentation.
The instructor and guest speakers are very professional and open to share their insights. Thank you.
by ARUN K•
This course was hard to learn with a variety of activities, assessments etc. But having said that, the course helped me with a great clarity around how to run a project at different levels. Many topics, activities were new to me and thanks for all efforts put in by the team. Getting confident in making this happen in my current role as well, if given a chance.
by Dineo P•
This whole programme has been the good kind of challenging and humbling. Honestly. Hands to heaven type of honestly.
Thank you Google and your great team!!! And my peers. This has been a sweet reminder that we do life together... peers have been grading my assignments and have been kind and some leave the sweetest comments. It's great :)
by Italo A M•
The course is an excellent reminder about the importance of not only running a project but closing it. The exercises are well thought out and provide fundamental insight into how to communicate with stakeholders and project members. I would recommend it to anyone getting into project management and anyone wanting a refresh.

Its my first experience to learn at Corsera, and I really impressed. Actually in my life ,I were think before the same way of education system should be in my country. Now I realised , Coursera provide an excellent learning oppertunity to all peoples in the world with very interesting, understandable and flexible way.
by Eva S•
I have learned so much from how to be an effective PM to running a successful project from the beginning to the end and how to properly close out the project. I am more confident in myself now than I was when I started! I am excited and look forward to leading projects and build a positive team culture with my teams.

I have a small business and this specialization has been deeply helpful. I have been learning so much valuable and practical content that helps me managing my business better. I'd say that this is what I enjoy the most about the specialization as a whole, it's really hands-on and this improves my learning journey.
by Jesús N R•
Ha sido uno de los cursos mas completos y detallados en cuanto a cierre de la gestión administrativa y operativa de proyectos. Los documentos que se deben generar, las dinámicas que se deben llevar, incluso como escribir un correo. Lo recomiendo para todos los que tengan problemas para cerrar proyectos.
by Raquel d C R•
One more course with lots of interesting and well-structured content (as always), but a bit long. I especially liked the last part - "Closing a project" - I had no idea that just because a project is done doesn't mean it's closed. All criteria, steps to take and documentation to be addressed... Amazing!
by Audra M•
This course was an excellent wrap-up to the Project Management specialization. The videos are engaging and provide just the right amount of information in bite-sized pieces so you can easily work through at your own pace. The material covered is relevant, and I appreciate the many useful templates.
by Rita F•
I like the pace of the course but I would have really benefited from watching someone actually close the project (step-by-step) since it's such an integral component of successful project management. Seeing someone close the project compared to what is currently available would be more beneficial.
by Jose S•
Excellent course, very friendly, its content quite complete and easy to understand, the practical exercises complete the training a lot. The instructions are all excellent. Congratulations, it is perceived that they are excellent professionals and are 100% identified and committed to the company
by Emma C•
The course material is very completed to describe how to run the project and all the videos are easier to understand. The assignements are not easy to completee, but it works to practice very well when followed all the instructions to do. I leart a lot from this course and I am appreciated.
