Gabriel Figcompleted this course, spending 4 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
I decided to update this review because I felt that my previous review was too critical. Yes, this course had some technical glitches in the early phases and it took longer than I would have liked to be fixed, but the content is very solid (and those glitches have been fixed by the way).
It's a great supplement to the Marketing Analytics in Theory course that precedes it.
Prof. Hartman is a very competent professor. In his lectures, you could see that he has a wealth of knowledge about this subject. What I like about his course is that he provided a very good and structured framework and the suggested readings are all very helpful in learning more about the course topics. Perhaps the only suggestion I would make to this course is that to make it more powerful, provide case studies for hands-on practice in analysis. Overall, it was a good course.
The course is rightly sized with the relevant content with inputs adequate enough to get a hands on experience on the usage of required tools. Helped me to analyse the real time issues faced in my own workplace. Would be quite an interesting module for Data savy guys digging the digital data with a thirst for an insight...!
I got a very deep understanding from the cours of Digital Marketing in Practice. Whatever I've learnt in the previous lesson/course was really helpful in completing this session. I'm very happy to be he part of MOOC's and thanks to coursera and Illinois. Really It's going to help me in my career.
