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.

Unable to download and install cloudera vm instructions. Even after putting the request in discussion forum and flagging the assignment with details to issue. There is no assistance. Wasted so much time and unable to complete the course . Can't move forward to next step. There should be a message center to connect with instructors.

The Hadoop assignment is a disaster. Cloudera VM didn't work and there was no help in the forum. I needed to workaround the last assignment so that I finally can move on after two days trying. I hope the next courses in this specialization will be better.
Please update this course or delete it completly

The course do not have technical support when practicing with HADOOP or installing the Virtual Machine. This is supposed to be for Marketing Managers too who are not engineers or Informatic experts in this issue. We pay for having support not for reading slices from 10 years ago!!!!!

Most of the information is useless, there spent two weeks talking about how you should manage your data that is something you can find anywhere in the internet. The only useful thing are the videos about Hadoop in the last week.

No peers are available to grade assignments. My credit card was dinged because no one grade my assignment within the 7 days, so the course was incomplete. To top it off, most of the labs don't work, and run on an obsolete VPS.

Very disappointing. Poorly written quizes and presentations. The level of the course is far too basic to be of value, but is required for the specialization. Why not offer an option to test out of basic introduction courses?

The bad things: Way too basic and outdated. The first 2 weeks of the course had no value to me.
The good things: It is an online course so easy to speed through first 2 weeks. Intro to mapreduce and exercise in week 3 was good.

Honestly, for the price paid, the value given is quite low. I expected to have more hands-on working with the Hadoop ecosystem rather than this course's focus on background that really does not help one to become productive.

Too many things I already know and which are quite obvious, when you have some little computer science knowledge, less practical information; the explanations for installing Cloudera etc are insufficient!!!
Very basic. All this information of this course can be self taught by Googling and the hands on exercise at the end of the course is a joke. For the $59 price of the course, expected more.

Presenter is very bad lecturer. She seems to be reading (badly) from a tele prompt, rather than lecturing. The quality of the slides is very poor. Not the level of a reputable University.
von Ray C•
The lectures are just not very good. Terms are confused. Just not that good. The material is not difficult at all, it is just the lectures and slides are poor.
von Chris G•
Last exercise is half the course and took many frustrating hours to install and for me never worked. No support provided by instructors. You are on your own.

Shallow. Perhaps useful for a student of management to skim over, but there is nothing that a student with technical background would gain from this course.
von Abhi K•
Instructors have very good knowledge but courseis very very theoretical with less examples and your subconscious mind is not even listening tovideo.

Everything at high level, people have to imagine things to really understand what is being said. Seriously has to work on the deliverable and plan.
von Shubham P•
THIS COURSE IS COMPLETELY USELESS FOR STUDENTS WITHOUT HIGH END INFRASTRUCTURE AS THEIR ARE NO CLOUD LABS FOR PRACTICING THE IMPLEMENTATION.
von Michele P•
I cannot complete the course due to installations problem of the software required even if I have all the requirements needed on my laptop.
von Xuening H•
Very bad course. The lecturors are not talking in a greenhand-friendly way. I cannot understand anything after I took the entire course.
von Sergiy V•
this is the worst course I have ever seen. Is it computer science course or phylosophy course???
Waiste of time.

This course is extremely bad on every level. User experience might be one of the worse I've had in my life.
von Sahar N•
I couldn't boot the VM and they didn't care to help me out an after weeks of studying I had to drop off.
von Hua Z•
This course just introduce the basic definition but no practical issues. Useless somewhat
von Seth D•
Extremely basic intro, not valuable if you have any understanding of the the space
Sorry, I cant learning all classes. The terrible PPT, rigid teaching methods
