The course is a very great asset to any aspiring project manager. You get to understand the fundamentals and essentials in any given project and the means to ameliorate conflicts amongst stakeholders.
It was very helpful for me to understand what the project management is. I am just thinking about starting this new career path and i was feeling comfortable in this field during the learning process.

Wish I'd been told before starting how much content relied on having the PMBOK book. Lack of linear structure to the planning process was quite confusing. The teaching seemed to flit back and forward the process. Left a litte confused about the correct order to tackle things in.

The course is mostly a read out of the PMBOK with quizzes that verify that you memorized what was in the slides rather than actually understood it.
The final exam was just a collection of all the previous quizzes with the exact same questions repeated.

well organized course, teach you the basics of project management.
Rated 2 stars: no point in paying if you don't have any course material, like downloadable presentation, which are crucial if you want to review what you've studied.

Instructor and lectures are good, but the Adobe Flash-based materials are annoying and difficult / impossible to use for future reference. Also Flash is being EOL'ed.
Overall the course is OK, but should go into a bit more depth.

Good as overview, but pretty shallow. Only some slides to read through, no real exercises but constant reference to the standard project management book. Pretty fast click-through as start into project management.

Subject matter is presented clearly with good examples. It is easy to understand the presenter. I would have preferred there be more panels and actual case studies rather than lectures and made-up cases.

The other courses I took at coursera were much better, so I expected more from this one. The flash lessons aren't that good for this generation at least, and soon google chrome will no longer support flash

The course is not interactive enough, it's a waterfall of dry information. I'd expected more based on the generally good reviews. Say, more examples, better videos. Think twice before buying.
Content is too superficial, can be aasily replaced with an brief overview article. Poor quality of video material - some phrases are cut in the middle where pieces are stitched together

I was surprised that the slides can only be visualized online, students should have access to fully downloadable resources for proper studying and reviewing.

I cannot find a link to ask questions. My question is :
Why can't I download narratives and what appears to be power point lessons from the course?

It's for the young worker who just starts to work in the office. The lesson may be too simple for the experienced officer

Despite having high quality contents, the quantity wasn't as much as I expected. The number of videos could be a lot more.

This course is too theoretical for me, I really miss some practical homework each week.
by Toby P•
Some good concepts and stories, but lacking in specific techniques.
by Kustarev D•
Because of the new PMBoK version issued this course is outdated
by Danish J•
It should be alligned with PMBOK 6th Edition

Where is the other parts

Not interactive enough.

It was just theory!

The quality of videos were low most of them have so many issues, also the content is more fit a 2 hour short course rathen than a course. Overal, the quality was not even close to other courses I have taken in courseara

Estimados: Al querer entrar en el curso, me envía a la semana , pero no me da la posibilidad de ver los vídeo, la pantalla se va a blanco.
Espero me lo puedan arreglar, la verdad me interesa el curso

This class is taught a terrible pace and is very old-school in it's thinking. It was pretty painful to get through actually
