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.
Getting a bit more challenging than the earlier courses in the specialization. The exercises require more struggle, but all the information is there. Another step along the way. Thank you, Dr. Chuck!

Great course, enjoyed the lectures. classes and assignments were on point. Generally I learned a lot, love the regex method and parsing xml / json was fun. happy I participated.

I could have used more homework, but the later assignments were sufficiently difficult to ensure I knew and remembered all the things I learned in the early part of the course.

Very good. However i believe the course was quite slow on some easy topics at the beginning of the cursus while we are now going slightly too fast with more complicated issues.
by Ethan S•
Assignments were too easy, and were really "fed" to us. Also, I liked better the setting in the previous course where Dr. Chuck was in his office and we always saw his screen.

Professor and course are great. However, I feel that there weren't enough practice questions to bolster our understanding of the material and the lessons were spread too thin.
by Ashok C•
Overall content was great, just few problems regarding week 6 quiz. Few questions in the quiz(mostly in week 6) were not from the content that was thought in video lectures.

The Concept explanation should have been more detailed. It would have been better if each of the output steps are shown and explained.
But, definitely a great learning.......

An excellent course.
The only weakness is associated with some no-explained commands and functions. This could lead to a mechanic development of the end-tasks of each week.

there was too much jumping between files and the code for twitter2.py dint work at first because oauth from python dint work so I had to download oauth from the sample code

Great introduction course to python with internet protocol/API/Scraping knowledge. I'll recommend this course to who is new to python to follow the whole series of courses.

Verry good introductory course into using python to access web data. Gives good background information. The exercises are quite easy for people with IT or Python knowledge.
by Aymane H•
It was a hard course but the instructor simplified it and with little practise and revising the course i think i can master how to access other web data using differnt api
by John L•
Somewhat diffcult maybe it is bacause the web is of nature complicated and you need to figure out many notion to pass the exam with full score. In grneral, a great course.

This is an awesome and the 'best' course I've taken in my entire career . Thanks a ton to Dr. Charles Severance and University of Michigan for materializing this course.

Immense gratitude for Dr.Chuck and his team for this great job. This kind of virtual programs can bring knowledge to more population and overcome the educational barrier.
by Ronald W•
Still very good content but it's getting a bit tough for beginners like me and also I get confused about the relationships among different concepts, like http, xml, json
by Robert F•
Good course. A lot of background info that could be cut down but good for context. XML and JSON videos and assignments were very challenging but great to work through.
ompare the first two courses this one is a little bit harder, and not so friendly to a fresher. There are still lots of things need to be learnt about spidering the web.
by vaddemani c s•
this particular course did not reach my expectations. as I did not have a background in computer science lots of the complicated concepts were not thoroughly explained.
by Damian C•
I took this course as part of the specialization, and I am glad I did. Great course, I hope It will help me in the near future, when I feel comfortable changing career.
by Jerry S•
The course material is great, but the assignment is too simple, especially the last(You don't need to write any codes). I think the assignments can be more challenging.
by Saurabh T•
I really enjoyed the the assignment. It was challenging and worth doing it. I am sure kind of knowledge which i gain by solving the assignment is worth time spending.
by Joost M•
really liked the lectures and the assignments. Only negative feedback is around installing beautiful soup, what was not working because of the type of bash terminal.
by Kevin C•
Great course, however skimmed over some key topics that are pretty fundamental to understanding not just the Python but the context of Python in web data extraction.
by Lucheng Q•
getting harder and harder but interesting because it gives chance for me to communicate with the actual application in the daily life. Great start accessing the web!
