This is a great starter course for data science. My learning assessment is usually how well I can teach it to someone else. I know I have a better understanding now, than I did when I started.

It is a very good course even if you are familiar with some aspects of data science work. If I have to make a suggestion, I would remark the importance of design skills during a data product,

Brian Caffo's lectures were rambling and confusing, with excessive use of jargon without proper explanation. His graphs were overwhelming with information, and little effort was made to explain the graph. Otherwise, the other lectures were very good, concise, and clear. Thank you.

Would have been better if quiz access is available for free so that it is easier to reinforce concepts learnt.

Very preliminary, most of the course don't have a PPT or handout. May be helpful if you know very few about data science.

Pretty basic course. Good if you are completely new to the space. There are good references to tools for further investigation.

I wanted to like this course but It felt entirely too academic in terms of both the subject matter and the way the specifics of "data science" are presented. The course content reminded me of my time a few years ago when I was enrolled in a Ph.D. program at a major Tier 1 research university. The professors were great, but the content was esoteric and incredibly focused on research based "data science" and less on business analytics or more practical applications of data science for the working professional. I felt myself re-watching the videos to try and understand the content because there were many instances where the professors' spoke about some fundamental aspect of data science but failed to provide some real world context. I liked the course but I would not recommend it as a crash course for the working professional, more like a crash course for someone who already has a degree in statistics/math/engineering who is looking to further their studies in an academic setting where research is the main goal.

Good intro to the terms, concepts, and approach for data science.

Pretty basic only for those who have never heard of anything but the term data science.

Concise but could already include a basic proyect.

Would have liked to seen more examples from other industries for those not in health industry

More lectures but each lecture should be shorter. More examples for each topic would be good.
However it is a crash course, so it is more of an overall description of Data Science, which also gives you suggestions to enhance your knowledge in other courses

Was expecting more of the how to's and a bit of programming or at least concepts of the programming/statistics, but I guess there are different interpretations of the idea of a crash course.
Definitely geared for people who work with data scientists but not in the data science field.

The course can use more visuals instead of videos of the face of the instructor. It can also use more interactive examples as this is a more executive view instead of having scholar examples.

Interesting but uneven. Felt like the first draft of a team-taught course

not bad but not good enough for showing examples like data visualization and how to build the mind of data science for several fields (finance, marketing, sales and so on)

An excellent high level overview, the presentations were strong. Could be more hands-on.
