Very challenging, but good course. I've been programming in R for over a year, but there were still some things for me to pick up in this class. Assignments were a challenge, but satisfying to tackle.

Excellent course! I already knew a lot about R - but this class helped me solidify what I already knew, taught me lots of new tricks, and now I have a certificate that says I know `something' about R!

The course content does not match the material you are tested on in the assignments and quizzes. DO NOT take this course if you are looking for an introductory level coding course.

Assignments don't match the lectures at all. Lectures are dry and simple and don't help you understand how to apply the topic to a real life situation. Don't waste your money.

Week 2 is an unreasonably difficult jump from Week 1. This course's beginner friendly lectures do not align with the level of understanding needed to complete the assignments.

This course was labelled as for beginners but was in no way for beginners. The instructors were completely absent. The course material did not reflect the assignments at all.

Very hard for a beginner. Lacks the slow build up I needed. Missing an explanation about a comma cost me about 4 hours. The assignments are brutal which encourages cheating.

homework was poorly structured and not adequately discussed in the lecture videos. Had to dig through several buried links to make any progress on the homework assignments.

The assignments used knowledge WAY above that taught in both Swirl and the lectures, i managed to complete through a lot of research but this has been incredibly tough!

The level of assignments does not match the level of the course. They are very hard on a beginner. Some practice in the right direction could do help the beginner.

It's too time consuming, not for a newbie. The classes are pointless, cause they are pretty easy and then the homework is ULTRA-DIFFICULT, classes are pointless.

No se pone absoluto interesés en la progresión del alumno. Las explicaciones son extremadamente escuetas y las tares de una dificultad desproporcionada.

R training and coding is not good. Explanation is good but assignments are very different and one needs to self learn a lot of R coding by themselves.

the worst course for someone has no knowledge about programming, if you don't have experience in any programming language .. don't take that course

Lecturer is very poor, explains very little and the assignments he give have no connection whatsoever to what was taught. waste of money and energy

This is the 6 th course I have taken and two of the courses had serious problems with grading weekly exams.
I need attention for this issue.

Assignments were too difficult and totally not relevant to learning materials. I believe alot of work needs to be input on course structure.

course need to be better organised. more information should be taught in videos.
more explanation should be given prior to assignments

This course was confusing, and the quizzes required knowledge outside of the readings and lectures. This is why I cannot learn online.

Lectures are very boring and designed in a weird way. He is simply reading the book that he wrote and no real practice was ever done.

Not the best course for beginners. Too much theory and no implementation. Also the assignments were impossible for a beginner.

Not for new programmers. The lecture material is also not logically organized and does not correspond to the assignments.

R tutorials and assignments are great - however, had to spend more time figuring out Git than I spent on R assignments...
