Hadoop Platform and Application Framework

Written 2 years ago
The quality of the course is not very high.

The quizzes are painful with correct answers being counted as wrong and "choose all that are true" format questions that provide no feedback. For the most part they tested for "facts" and memory retention.

However, it does provide a good overview of the different components in the Hadoop ecosystem, and did provide a good guidance for further studies into these tools.

Neural Networks for Machine Learning

Written 2 years ago
This is a hard class, it goes deep into the math behind neural networks and it goes deep into the design implementation of such network. It is also a unique opportunity to learn from someone who is a pioneer and one of the lead thinkers in the field of neural nets.

Introduction to Big Data Analytics

Written 2 years ago
The course is implemented in an unprofessional and mediocre manner. All the practice "hands on sections" are walk throughs of the tutorials included in the cloudera QuickStart VM. The quizzes have questions that are just wrong from cryptic multiple choice questions that rely on obscure grammar to "appear harder", to concepts that are included in the quiz before they are taught in class and even one case where the correct answer is not included in the multiple choice and one has to choose an answer that reflects a misconception and poor understanding of the material, in order to get it right.

The one thing that worked with this course was coursera's refund mechanism.
