Exciting course that connects all the previous course's materials together into a professional backdrop. Very rewarding and I can't wait to take the capstone!

more challenging than expected, issues with the Meteor hosting/community caused some issues, but good learning experience

A Lot of thanks to University of London and Coursera for providing this amazing and useful course. Really enjoyed learning. It helped me learn new skills to develop my career and enrich my expertise. Thanks

The course is a little chaotic and did not meet the standards of the previous 4 courses. Still useful for learning some techniques, but mainly when writing the projects.

It is great, but, from my point of view, parts 1, 2, 3, 4 are a little better.

Not very great examples provided but you certainly can still learn a lot. Also I disagree with using Vis.JS, it's a lousy library!

Not the best of the courses in this specialisation, but as all the rest had set the bar very high!! Still learnt a lot about Meteor and how to use database in different ways! Thank You.

Could have used a few more details on how to change to various other brushes (squares, circles, etc).

This module is a very good addition to the specialisation.
In terms of sophistication of the meteor app it might be a step back, but it brings all the acquired knowledge and show how it can be put into a good use.
The examples of the sound and drawing app are great to demonstrated blending responsive app with media management, while blogging and data-driven web apps are pretty much, what the modern web is all about.
I did like the data driven app in particular, because it was just that cherry on a pie, that let me start the project that was from the beginning the very reason I did this specialisation.
Too bad the capstone project can only be joined with official admission to the specialisations, I would definitely enjoy to develop my "startup" up idea as a part of the guided education process.
And for now - compliments to the organisers of the course, it really can bring one from zero to ready-to-became-a-hero of the web-apps developments and myself - I'm off to learn more about d3.js and react.js ;)

Not really a fan of Mick's way of teaching, he seems to have spent most of his time playing with the music or drawing app rather than explaining the features. I also think it would have been helpful to explain more about the purpose of Session.get for retrieving the features and plotting them into data. I think one of the issues with this is there aren't really many active folks on the discussion, so it is difficult to try to find a solution to problems you are having.

Just showing examples of some good projects and their code at most part of the course .Also comparing Meteor with Wordpress is wrong and I don't think Meteor will reach Wordpress.After all they are different tools for different jobs.

its not bad, but its not great either..
the teacher's passion for music may overcloud his jugment..

i thought the course is about showing us some examples of responsive web designs and how to make creative responsive websites as the title suggest
but the course is about 4 basic websites and how they are developed using meteor
it goes on describing how to code this stuff and how the code logic is written and add a little to the meteor learning experience
i suggest you change the title of the course to be what the course is really about

assignment made too easy and the starting files are not up to date with the last versions of meteor. It takes a while of search on the internet to fix or the errors.

I wish they would have spent more time in some things that were conceptually hard to understand.

I would like that the examples were more related to science or economics, and updated it

It would have better if the talking and coding was at the same time so that we can see its relative changes, which we can see in previous course.

This is a complete waste of time. The other courses were really good but with this course I:
Learned nothing new
Unlearned best practises from the previous courses
Mick doesn't seem to understand what he is presenting himself at times, the supplied code does not match the video's, the assignments change when I already submitted it (from upload a zip to deploy) and the assignments are copy pasted. I think it would help to take this part out of the specialisation.

Nothing new to learn here, this is very dull in contrast to other courses of this spec. I gave up watching the videos after a while and try to pass anyway. Too bad this is part of this spec, I wish Marco or Matthew taught this course too. This course is very hard to follow and not interactive at all. It should take the students through examples, live examples the student can do too, and things the student builds from scratch. This does nothing like that.
DON'T take this course if you aren't after the specialisation certificate. It's not worth the time and effort.
Too bad this spec includes this course, it shouldn't be here.

There's no support from the staff. The staff is completely absent in the recent discussion forums, it seems they have abandoned the course few months ago.
You have your assignments evaluated by only one peer, and that doesn't protect your final grade from wrong evaluations.

Nul. Null. Null! Vous allez vous casser le nez avec Meteor. En plus, ce n'est pas avec Meteor que vous trouvriez du travail. En plus.... y'a peu de gens inscrit à ce cours... 3 mois et pas encore quelqu'un pour corriger mon dernier cours...... De la foutaise de la part de Coursera!

I actually do not like this course, which is surprising because I really enjoyed the other courses in this specialization. I don't care for this instructor, and the example code routinely has bugs.

Horrible course, don't waste your time.
