I love the course. It goes deep into the foundations, and then finishes up with an actual lab where you learn by practice. I greatly benefited from it and feel I have achieved a milestone in big data.
One of the best course to start learning new cutting-edge technology and to get deeper insights into Big Data. Thanks to the great instructors for amazing explanations of each module and e-materials.

The material was pretty out-dated and extremely basic. Given the technical nature of the later courses, this material would only be useful for people are incapable of finishing the specialization.

It is old fashioned and much theoretical. Does not mention any details about hive, spark etc. But if you want to learn the history of bigdata its good for it and understand main need.

I have problem at the last hadoop part, which requires a lot of laptop performance and eventually let my laptop went into repair.
Do be careful while sign up for this course.

You can easily get away with skipping the first two weeks of the course. Only the last half the third week seems to contain any real technical information about hadoop.

I guess I shouldn't be pissed at an 'Introduction' course to be too basic, but still... It's completely skippable, even if you don't know anything about big data.

This is more focused on theory than practical experience.Its better to shorten the video duration so that it will not be boring to listen to lectures.
por Quji B•
The introduction is too theoretical and the practice starts too late. The last assignment is actually where I truly felt I started learning Big Data.
por Robert B B J•
Worst introduction. The Instructors are very promising don't get me wrong. The structure of the course and the presentation and editing is awful.
por Joanne D•
Content is outdated. Especially the hands on work given towards the end of the course, It was not self-explanatory
por Joachim S•
There should be more hands on experience in the first classes, so the pupils have something to tie the knowledge.
por Matthew W•
Would have been fine as a 1 week introduction to the material but as a stand alone course was insufficient.
por Alejandro R•
Most of the course is providing useless statistics, i didn't enjoy it and it's a really basic course.
por Sergei P•
A very basic and still confusing set of slides. It's much more productive to google Hadoop wiki.
por John B•
Some very basic information, minimal hands-on work, and very picky tests/quizzes
I want to enroll this course ....and I'm unable to do it
por Brendan P•
Quite poor. Just a lot of talk and nothing practical.
por Jaivardhan D•
Nothing Practical just talking and lots of talking
por Mehedi H P•
The last quiz i think that should not given
por MH N•
In my opinion, a very basic course...
por Damon A•
This course was really basic.
too broad of explanations

The initial presentation is a bit bloated, naming all the ways big data can be useful could have been 5 minutes. The default configuration of oracle VB and cloudera quickstart did not work for me at all (windows 7 64bit, 32g of ram), I had so many issues that I spent much more time trying to get that to work than I did everything else in this class. Finally, the course at no point mentioned any of the potential social/legal issues of using dig data, just what the value of tracking information. I have done a few certificates from either EDX or Coursera, and this was the worst one.
