Lectures are very good with a perfect explanation. More than lectures I liked the assignment questions. They are worth doing. You will get to know the basic foundation of text mining. :-)

Excellent course! Video lectures are high quality, with realistic problems and applications. Exercises are reasonably challenging, and all quite fun to do! Strongly recommend this course

I liked the previous courses in the series better. I think this course did not have enough "meat on the bones"; the ML method descriptions were generic and already seen in previous courses. Would have liked seeing more explanation how this all works in context of text and text mining etc

This course teaches basic, practical skills for text mining with Python's regular expression (re, pandas) and NLTK package. While the lectures do not go into much depth and are typically too slow or too fast, the assignments are good exercises for learning basic text mining techniques.

I will not say that I did not learn anything. I just wish the autograder was a little better. Basically, quite frustrating to fight a black-box grader. An example of a better autograder is the one implemented by the Princeton people for their algorithm courses.

Compared to other courses, there's a disconnect between what's covered in the lecture and what's needed to complete the assignments; the lectures at times have a more theoretical flavor. For a course with "applied" in the name, that's a more significant mistake.

In general, the course is good, lesson explanations are excellent but it lacks of pratical lessons. Assignments are quite difficult in comparison with the material of the course lesson. It took me a lot of time to do them and understand where my mistakes were.

I really think that the 3rd and 4th week of the course should have more practical presentation (especially the 4th week for which the assignment is quite 'new' in terms of programming). Having a notebook for the 4th week would be a good additional material.

Good topics and well explanations. A Notebook to support content of week 4 is definitely needed. More explanations in assignment for week 4 is needed. In general, week 4 lacks of organization and good content. that is why I give 3 stars instead of 5

I don't feel like I learned very much; even a month later, I've almost entirely forgotten what we covered. The homeworks were confusing and often poorly worded, and from what I saw from the forums, I wasn't the only one who was left baffled.

The videos and content were great but the projects need more specificity. There's a lot of ambiguity around what the projects are asking for which takes away from the quality of the course. For examples, please visit the discussion forums.

This course was just too theoretical. There were just too many lectures on the English language and nothing really practical. I learned nothing that I can actually use. There were hardly any useful text mining techniques that I learned.

You do more work learning on your own to be able to do the projects and quizes then is given in the lectures. These University of Michigan classes aren't very balanced in terms of lectures, reading, and difficulty of projects.

Great teaching material and clear explanations. I learnt a lot.
Nevertheless the assignments auto-grading tool is awful.
I spent more time looking for the necessary hacks to pass the assignments than working on text mining.

The content of the video and the assignment needs to be updated. Some of the questions in the assignment were not clear and autograder can be a pain. The topics are also not too coherent from weeks to weeks.

The assignment is very easy compare to the previous three courses, just need to apply some library and done. The syllabus is poorly designed, especially for the last two weeks. Overall, don't recommend.

Autograder bugs make for a frustrating time completing the assignments. Independent research and self-guided learning will come in handy for this course as the lectures (mostly) are uninformative.

A nice course overall but maybe not the best in the specilisation.
It may be me non understanding deeply the content but I found it a bit more mystical rather than quickly see concrete applications

The course would be significantly improved if there were more hands-on demos during the lectures. Lectures are very high-level and aren't terribly useful when trying to do the lab exercises.

Course content was informative and would benefit greatly from more depth. Some of the automated grading solutions are lacking/buggy. Excellent forum participation was key to success.

ambiguous, not very clear.
especially for the last course, the task could be difficult for novice
the course didn't present detailed explain for the code and sort of hard to follow

Very very long videos. Makes a person zone out. The videos need to be smaller in length as they become very hard to complete. However, the content is good and easy to understand.

Overall a good course and a nice introduction to Text Mining but issues with the autograder and some unclear instructions can make the assignments a little painful.

Some good stuff here, but really drops in quality toward the end and became a real slog to finish. Shame, since the rest of the specialization has been outstanding.

assignments are ok although with some unclear issues. however, i think the last week tutorials can be richer and more informational. i love the week1-3 tutorials.

Overall good material. Not enough actual code examples at times, especially towards the end. The assignments weren't completely relevant and slightly buggy.

Seems sort of unupdated, lacking enough applications for the student to really get a grasp of the contents. Lectures should explain theory more thoroughly
