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.

I occasionally felt lost in the application of the materials, but that could have been my own inability to anticipate a learning curve.

twitter part was confusing, it required rigorous permissions from twitter online apps, therefore more insight was required.

Excellent instructor. He explains the code and concept very clearly. If the course had more coding exercises it would have been amazing

Very nice course. one thing this course can add is the practical example from actual web scraping such as basketball score, stock data.
I like the teaching-style of the professor.It's very insteresting.
Btw,if more the example for accessing web Date, maybe more pratical.

El curso en general bien , pero deberia ser revisado y actualizado, en especial los trabajos ya que en ocaciones pueden ser confusos.

Dr Chuck always does a great job of feeling like you're in a real class, real teacher. I thought the content of the course was good.

Wonderful course which touched upon many things. It can be more intensive for an in depth explanation. Amazing course nonetheless!

The third course and now I have proven three times, that I installed Python and can use it. Probably this would not be necessary.
by Hiral K•
The course needs more practice explained problems. Suddenly, the level of the course went too high. But, thank you for the course

Good course on using web data thru Python. A bit complex and feels like out of sync with Python and more like a XML/JSON course.

This course needs better explanations for assignments, they are a good deal more complicated than the work taught in the lessons
by Ambika P•
Some difficulty in understanding the problem set in the Week 6 assignment - especially using the GEOJSON, but overall very good

The class is very interesting, but there too many information to really profit! BTW it was very nice to see all these new stuff

Tuve problemas en la instalación de las librerias urllib, json, etc. Eso es lo que no me agrado. Todo lo demás estuvo perfecto.
by Shane M•
Very insightful! I only wish the course would explain some of these security tricks. I understand there may not be enough time.
by Akshay M•
Assignments should have been made more difficult and more in depth explanation of Beautiful Soup package is highly recommended.
by Kamol F•
This was one tough course i must say! The assignments was bit of tough but i really enjoyed! Thanks coursera for the platform.
by Chau P•
the assignments are especially harder for some sections and easier than others. instructions for assignment can be made clear

Good introduction to getting data from the web. I've used this course to scrape fantasy football data and analyse it in Excel
by Sehyun P•
I was a bit hard than the previous two courses in specialization. But I could know more of the network lessons using python.
by Jenny J•
Good for beginners who need a lot of explanation and details of programming languages and how to apply it for data analysis.
by James C•
Another good course! I would recommend giving a little more information on the Networked Programs and Web Services sections.
