I love the course. It goes deep into the foundations, and then finishes up with an actual lab where you learn by practice. I greatly benefited from it and feel I have achieved a milestone in big data.
First of all i would like to take this opportunity to thanks the instructors the course is well structured and explained the foundations with real world problems with easy to understand the concepts.

I have problem at the last hadoop part, which requires a lot of laptop performance and eventually let my laptop went into repair.
Do be careful while sign up for this course.

You can easily get away with skipping the first two weeks of the course. Only the last half the third week seems to contain any real technical information about hadoop.

I guess I shouldn't be pissed at an 'Introduction' course to be too basic, but still... It's completely skippable, even if you don't know anything about big data.

This is more focused on theory than practical experience.Its better to shorten the video duration so that it will not be boring to listen to lectures.

The introduction is too theoretical and the practice starts too late. The last assignment is actually where I truly felt I started learning Big Data.

Worst introduction. The Instructors are very promising don't get me wrong. The structure of the course and the presentation and editing is awful.
von Joanne D•
Content is outdated. Especially the hands on work given towards the end of the course, It was not self-explanatory
von Joachim S•
There should be more hands on experience in the first classes, so the pupils have something to tie the knowledge.
von Matthew W•
Would have been fine as a 1 week introduction to the material but as a stand alone course was insufficient.
von Alejandro R•
Most of the course is providing useless statistics, i didn't enjoy it and it's a really basic course.
von Sergei P•
A very basic and still confusing set of slides. It's much more productive to google Hadoop wiki.
von John B•
Some very basic information, minimal hands-on work, and very picky tests/quizzes
von AINA N B Z•
content boring. slide not attractive enough to attract beginner to learn.
I want to enroll this course ....and I'm unable to do it
von Brendan P•
Quite poor. Just a lot of talk and nothing practical.
von Jaivardhan D•
Nothing Practical just talking and lots of talking
von Mehedi H P•
The last quiz i think that should not given
von MH N•
In my opinion, a very basic course...
von Damon A•
This course was really basic.

The initial presentation is a bit bloated, naming all the ways big data can be useful could have been 5 minutes. The default configuration of oracle VB and cloudera quickstart did not work for me at all (windows 7 64bit, 32g of ram), I had so many issues that I spent much more time trying to get that to work than I did everything else in this class. Finally, the course at no point mentioned any of the potential social/legal issues of using dig data, just what the value of tracking information. I have done a few certificates from either EDX or Coursera, and this was the worst one.

These UCSD "big data" course series is not great. I am pretty sure the "instructors" are reading straight from a public wiki. The dropping of acronyms and buzz words indicates the instructors are not familiar with the core content nor able to actually instruct. Glossing over actual execution and installation of sample virtual machines is abhorrent and completely ruins what minimal value a student may have learned. There are many free YouTube videos on Hadoop that are more informative than this course series.
