So much information was packaged in this course but it was so well organized and delivered that I was compelled to complete every segment. Well timed quizzes helped to ensure my comprehension as well.

Very informative. Did not realize there was more in order to get the certificate. Need to be more transparent with the actual course agenda and allow for a less controlled way to get thru the courses.

I found there to be lots of useful information that I think the project managers at my work do not even know. It really breaks it down well for you, and helps you to learn key points in how to properly manage a project. I can not wait to continue and keep learning.

The first step helps you to learn more about Project Management, you will feel the content is easy in the initial stage, and gradually learn more new knowledge which shows a designed process and structure.All in all, it is a good online learning experience for me.

If you're a project manager, or an aspiring project manager, without any academic or previous professional background in management, this course would be good for you because it can help you fill the knowledge gap in the fundamental aspects of project management.

Very engaging and encouraging instructor, Emilio who is the project manager innovation, did a great job, even though it is online, but you can feel that you are setting in front of him in class. Thanks Emilio, looking forward to work with you one day soon, I hope.

This Course is a robust foundation to a successful project management, and execution.

Thanks Coursera. Thumbsup. The best part is, it keeps the audience intact because of short interesting videos, and is not boring.

I enjoyed the speaker and his enthusiasm for project management. The course was also very well structured and easy to understand. I liked the pop up quizzes and the final quizzes after each week was completed. Google keeps the information up-to-date and relatable.

Very well organized, with varied teaching methods to avoid monotony, and make it more engaging. The only thing i would eliminate is suggesting how to look for a PM job, and how to handle a interview. It's too early in the Certification Program to ask for a PM job.

The course is well organized, with different types of learning materials that allow it to not be annoying. There should be more interactive activities during the course and less video time. For me instead, there should be more readable and downloadable content.

I am glad I took this course, it was rewarding and revealing. It gave me loads of insight into the basics of project management and I took away valuable learnings from it which I hope to apply to projects of the future in my career.

Budgeting, time frames, and resource estimatesare typically covered by project management courses. You'll learn skills for not only setting goals for achievement within a realistic budget and time, but also for reviewing and vetting costs and resource estimates.
