Audio could be better. Low recording volume makes it difficult to listen sometimes.

Terrible. For the first time in long time I felt such abandoned. No support. Notebooks written sloppy with plenty of copy-paste and no fixing. Thought more of the lecturer as well but videos feel like he's just coming up with the material. Having strong mathematical background I felt that the lecturer is intentionally making simple things sound hard. I'm left with deep sense of wasted time. Leaving Coursera and never coming back.

One of assignments was hard. Explanation by lecturer was very easy to understand and appropriate long.

This course is a perfect introduction to machine learning applied to finance, which covers the essentialtopics that students must know to deepen their knowledge in this fascinating field.

I learned much and got good practice in Python and Tensorflow as well as good exposure to the literature. I was able to download the course materials from the course system and work out homework on my own system for which I was pleased. The automatic grading system worked without incident once I figured it out and did not crash on me. On the other hand, some of the homeworks were less than fully explained and/or motivated by the course material and did contain errors and omissions in the supplied code that I had to track down in order to get them correct. The feedback from the grader was of no use beyond stating whether the answer was correct, but this is pretty standard. The course was frustrating at times and I would recommend it only for students who are highly motivated, but for those who are, it is definitely worth the effort.

Despite all the problems with the assignments and the grader this course provides really good overview ML tools and their application to finance. It's definitely worth the effort

A much needed course by a very seasoned expert in the field, bringing the right blend of backgrounds in finance and tech. The course is well designed for finance professionals with some coding background and for technology professionals with some finance background - which is unique in that sense. Some bridging between lectures and assignments is needed but that kind of fine tuning is inevitable and as more students enroll, the discussion rooms and feedback will provide that sharpening at the edges organically. All in all, I enjoyed the course a lot and look forward to the next three in the specialization!

It lacks information on how to proceed on NN coding.

Not very related to finance plus most of the tasks are easy to complete, but hard to understand what needs to be done.

Potentially great course with bridges technology (machine learning methods) and application (finance), but as for now it is really rough around the edges. Still needs to improve in terms of video lectures, resources and assignments; but once polished it could be a great course/specialization.
