This course was really interesting and did a good job introducing complicated topics in usefully simplified form. It was a pleasure to listen to the instructor and I got everything I wanted out of it.
This course is great to introduce you to regular expression, HTML, XML and JSON. Based on this course, you may dive into many other materials to further learning how to use python to access web data.

Nice course, but we would enjoy it even more if it is more in dept for the basics of web like XML, JASON, Beautiful Soup, Client- server conversations etc.

Some of the assignments were pretty hard for me and I wished the explanation could be more better and had depth.
But overall really good course and helpfull

I found this course little difficult as most of the syntax deviates from what I've learned. I had to check multiple times before I could finish the course.

A more challenging course, as to be expected in this stage of the specification. It would be interesting to know how much of the underlying code is working

It has been a great course, learnt about different forms in which data can be transferred and how to access and interpret the data. Overall a great one :)
I think this course has many introduction about the logics of Internet, but it's not so interesting as in the previous courses in the same specialisation.
by Allen Y•
The class is good, but the content in the class is not that much.
I think more complex project to solve some interesting tasks in homework will be better.

Information Technology (IT) is a very dynamic sector. That is why current version of the course is outdated. I can strongly recommend update the course.

explain with more elobarate consept and examples would me more helpful.but this section is not as productive or clearly understood as previous courses.

Though a little tougher than the preliminary courses in the specialization, this course has really enhanced my creativity and problem - solving skills
by David T•
good course, complex topic, but Dr Chucks is good. It could be a bit better with shorter videos, explanations of concepts a bit more easily or slower.

Excellent course. I think it would be better if some part of the course is replaced with other materials. Mainly, I did not like the XML part and API.
by Lucia M•
This course is great, altough sometimes the difficulty is a bit too high. I was able to solve all exercise but I copied a lot from the given materials
适合新手 还有很多不足之处。There are fewer supplemental materials. I think it can give more import supplementary, especially the most relevant portion of the book.

Some parts of the course need better explanation. I found installing BeautifulSoup confusing and it could have used better instructions for doing so.
by Haydn P•
Wish the homework went more in-depth instead of simply using most of the skeleton code from the sample code used in the lecture slides pertaining it.
by Bugra C•
I think we need more exercises and explanation. Worked examples were not good as previous chapters.
Overall good course thanks to a great instructor.
by Norman G•
Very interesting with a lot of context and challenges alike. Sometimes the assignments seem very difficult but they turn out quite easy after all.

The course was reaaly great to attend. If something could improve, it would be that XML and JSON could have been in detail and REST was not taught.
by Saman F•
need to provide some detailed information about how to get API key.
thanks to Dr. Chuck for such good lectures and also the University of Michigan.
by Marc B•
Excellent - but I wish that the course had tougher assignments to really push me to practice on the topic - although I admit this is hard to grade.
by Sylvain C•
very interesting course gving an introduction to the use of Python to work with web data
Maybe too quick but in any case, it is a good introduction.
by VISHWESH M•
The pace of the course was just right however the difficulty level was slightly higher than I expected and the assignments were also pretty tough!
by RUI C•
It would be better if there were more explanations and details of the codes. But I really learnt a lot since I did a lot of self teaching. Thanks!
by Mohammad A•
Overall it is a great course, but I think the parts about web scraping and APIs could have more explanations since they are complicated concepts.
