ミシガン大学(University of Michigan) による Using Python to Access Web Data の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



This course will show how one can treat the Internet as a source of data. We will scrape, parse, and read web data as well as access data using web APIs. We will work with HTML, XML, and JSON data formats in Python. This course will cover Chapters 11-13 of the textbook “Python for Everybody”. To succeed in this course, you should be familiar with the material covered in Chapters 1-10 of the textbook and the first two courses in this specialization. These topics include variables and expressions, conditional execution (loops, branching, and try/except), functions, Python data structures (strings, lists, dictionaries, and tuples), and manipulating files. This course covers Python 3....

Practical assignments





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.

Some parts of the course need better explanation. I found installing BeautifulSoup confusing and it could have used better instructions for doing so.

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


V​ery 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.

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.



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.

by Christoph V


Please change the second assignement in week 6! The geojson homework is completely broken! Apart from that a nice overview to get into this topic

by Md. A A R A ,


This is a bit complex than first two course of Python specialization. Complex codes should be more elaborately explained specially in API parts.

by Valentin Q


Still very good but some code parts were too fast explained to be correctly learned - I would have needed more steps to understand it better ...

by Iheoma U


I wish greater detail was used for the api access...for instance twurl install didn't work so wasn't able to test various functionality using it

by Jim M


Strange as it may seem, I would have liked more assignments to reinforce all the new concepts I tripped over on my way to finishing this course.

by Manas D


As always it is fun to try things out with Dr.Chuck but i faces some probleme and didn't understand some topics as it was not expained properly

by Anupama C


"" is not suitable sample code for assignment "Extracting data from XML". It makes thing looked complicated.

by Filippo A


Though it rushes on some of the advanced concepts, making it difficult to master them, it still a great example of what MOOCs should look like.

by daidaista


Great course! The reason why I didn't give 5 stars is that assignments are too easy. If we can resolve some real problems, that will be better.

by Shigeru M


This course really teaches me what I wanted to know. Text and sample codes are wonderful. I think it's easier now for me to step up. Thank you.

by Benjamin L


Good survey of different skills needed and problems that you may encounter. I didn't always feel prepared to complete some of the assignments.

by Rupesh A


This course of python is very good. I learnt different things from this course like reading XML file ,JSON file, HTML, and regular expression.

by 慈曦


fundamental and good

great professor

I like this course

but i think the assignment maybe too easy

but still,you can learn something in this course

by Anmol g


It was Ok! The preofessor has a good style of teaching, but the depth of material could have been better and the assignments more challenging.
