Good course, very well structured and with interesting assignments. Some (especially first) lessons are more of a general culture but most are very helpful and allow to learn a lot of things.

I found the class to be very informative. The assignments on creating charts and graphs for large data sets were practical and helped me understand the concepts taught in the course.

It is a great course for introduction on the subject.

It's an intro course, so no qualms about that aside from that I missed having some intro d3.js assignments (that could be fully automated).
The peer review system is unfortunately the weakest point of this. I got decent enough grades mind you, but it's sensitive to fluctuations in enrollment in a way that makes me weary.

This course was excellent. It provided not only an overview of what data visualisation is but it also proved to be sufficiently challenging regarding the assignments and quizzes. This was truly a university course.

I liked the 'harder' science aspect of the course and how it went beyond basic design considerations. Maybe a little challenging for novices with visualization, but good deep dive for people who want more theory and visualization science.

It is worth the cost and effort, but ... four weeks did not provide enough time for the instructor to really demonstrate techniques for achieving the kind of results that are shown. The cost is low compared to other delivery mechanisms, but high compared to other, longer, more detailed, Coursera courses.

Good high level course that covers many of the basics. Not a lot of practical (though the course does state that up front). 4 out of 5 only because it felt like the last lecture felt like it was trying to shoehorn in a ton of new concepts without really fleshing them out.

The course helps us students understand the basics of Data Visualization. It provides additional materials if you want to study more, but I feel it was necessary to provide examples or tutorials to get started with some of the tools necessary to complete the assignments. Less tech savvy students may have problems with this part.

Good course overal.
There is quite a mix of high level and very low level detail - e.g how humans percieve data in visuals (interesting and useful) but not down in the detail - other sections on of planar and non-planar graphs and buliding out matrix with signficant detail.
The quizzes and assignments are well balanced between the detail and the high level area.

You get broad overview about Data Visualization.
Therefor the depth of the course isn't to high.
Please provide additional information upfront, which tools are recommended to pass this course.
Some peer reviewers do not grade according to the guidelines.

Very useful course for beginners.
Pdf of the slides not available
Low interaction with other students, mentor answering the forum a bit bizarre

There should have been more focus on the plotting tools. The theory portion is informative.

The course is awsome to get motivation and quite informative. However it teaches lot of practical concepts using Tableau which is a commercial software.
Since these concepts entirely new to me. It take me a lot of time to understand videos and still I'm afraid I'll forget the things as soon as I leave it. I think some more practical activities should be introduce (on free platforms), to make knowledge more sustainable.

I chose the "Data Mining" specialization to learn more about data mining ;-)
I'm not so interested to present data
