Excellent course for beginners with enough depth, programming and computational theory to increase their computer science knowledge to a higher level. It builds a good foundation of how computers work
The course is very well-designed and it helped me develop understand how to apply computational thinking in solving various types of problems as well as acquire basic skills of programming in Python.

Really great course. I found the wording of a couple homework problems to be confusing, but overall really enjoyed the course

The course is great, but the last 2 questions in the forth week are not friendly for the coding beginner.

It was very joyful throughout the course and i learned a lot but there is a problem, the voice is so low.

The last 2 assignments had some issues in the results. Those need to be fixed to save us some time.

The course is very well designed and taught, however the peer review system is a real pain.

The auto-grade assignment in Week 4 should be improved.

The first 3 weeks of the course are very enlightening for someone new to computer science, but the fourth week of the course suffers from a significant difficulty spike when trying to answer questions involving python programming. Issues include expecting the learner to know concepts not mentioned in videos and a lack of help with python programming questions.

There are giant leaps in logic for the assignments using python. It was not friendly for someone with no python experience.

Not very rigorous course. However, it is OK for an introductory course for non CS students.

it was nice But not in deep.

This course is disappointing. It does not provide useful information in the first 3 weeks, and rush to python introduction in the lask week without enough excise and clarification.

Terrible. Too many bugs in the autograder. Need more specific guidelines for submission in section 4.8

Boring, not application based.
How this help me on the job?

very messy although basic. It seems the course was rearranged in the middle so the quizzes don't always add up. Otherwise, either they assume you already know it all or they try to make you think it is complicated. Some very "sophisticated" trick questions suggest the later.
The instructors just quote the material in a very friendly voice. They lach intonation or emphasize. It was really easy to loose attention.
Further more, the examples they gave were not always easy to follow. For me, it was easier to follow the computer programs than to understand the human description.
... and they rely on peer review excessively. Every student should prepare himself being a part time Teaching assistant. Since you need to review one assignment but your assignment needs to be graded by 2, it don't add up and you end up begging in the forum to be reviewed if you want to get the certification

This course requires some significant experience using Python programming, which is required when you reach the last section of the course. You will need several days or a week to learn Python and that may be beyond what you had planned in terms of time commitment. Also, the instructional videos are very very rudimentary, but the quizzes require more detail info that you will need to get from other internet sources, like re-learning math logarithms. >>>>Please credit my account, the course is poorly designed.

Very difficult, especially the last module. I'm sorry but I don't agree with the expectations provided by the presentation of the course. It is difficult to get support and you feel easily lost. I don't recommend taking this course unless people are very proficient in computer science and / or Python.
