This course has given me an idea of how data mining process works using Weka. There is well-structured content and activities which gives you insight into how to work through analyzing varied datasets using different algorithms. The activities in this course concentrates on comparing and understanding the results of the algorithms. They have given a basic level of algorithm understanding of some popular algorithms. So , overall , the course ware effectively copes with the objective of getting you work and analyzing data sets in Weka.

I would recommend this course to have a beginner level of understanding of the data scientifical and analytical process.

Class Central user completed this course, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Very useful course which introduces a tool, called Weka, that makes data mining as a practice accessible and fun.

Awesome instructor, Prof. Witten, who manages to introduce the topic with an appropriate level of abstraction, not too theoretical and more hands on, and with engaging activities.

Definitely check it out.

This course is good to grasp elementary topics from data mining and machine learning. Even if you don't plan to work with Weka, this course is still usable and brings some value, especially for people new to the data mining.

This was a great introduction to Weka and machine learning. Prof Witten does a fine job of combining the 'how-to' with the 'why'.
