Very good course! Dynamic and very well structured. I totally recommend, it provides you notions of all aspects involving the first two stage of project. I look forward doing the other parts.

Great videos with good examples. The way of teaching is very good. Not too much information. Just the right level of information to well understand the principles. Getting the books is essential to well understand the project management teached by RICE.

The course is excellent for those starting their way in project management but to gain maximum benefit you should take all 3 courses of this specialization. Thanks alot to the instructors for their effort and for this well organized course.

Very good course, the instructors have a great structure for the lectures even though some topics are not addressed as much as needed. This isn't a problem since they reference books available to increase your knowledge in the topic at hand.
The only problem I had with this course was the peer-reviewed assignments. I had a really bad experience grading some since I had to report them for plagiarism because they uploaded the exact same document as the example or I didn't have anything to grade because they uploaded a blank document. On top of this, when my work was being graded, I did not get any feedback regarding how I could improve it.
Interesting course for project management newbies, but it could be improved with some real life examples to accompany the theory. I liked the format of the video and the presentation style, although the visuals are more distracting and not adding to the experience. Presenters are well articulated and easy to follow. Big thumbs up for the transcripts and subtitles!
On the downside, I'm not particularly impressed by the peer review system. Who are my peers? People like me, who don't really know much about this topic in the first place? How relevant is their grading/feedback? Also, the grading system is fundamentally flawed, in my opinion, as it's focused on the format, and not the content. More than once I found errors in the content, but because it was filled out per the rubrik, I had to give it points.

This course nicely explains the concepts applied in project management. It however gives few concrete examples and remains 'theoretical'. It is helpful for someone with some practical experience who wants to learn the formal tools and concepts. Most learnings come from the peer-reviewed assignment and reflection on own experience. It will however probably not be adequate for beginners without professional experience, e.g university students.

This course can help any beginner learn the basics of Engineering project management right from scratch. I recommend this course to anyone whose interests are inclined towards management and is an engineer.

This course will give in-depth knowledge of project management. Peer-graded assignments will help us a lot to think in other ways how others will proceed and learn from their assignments too.

The course is extremely helpful in learning some new concepts and also to recapitulate the learning. I strongly recommend this for my colleagues and friends.
por Siddhant S•
This is a very well structured course with a lot of tests and assignments. I would definitely help this to all budding project managers like myself.
por Lucas B d M•
This course is really good. If you have the opportunity, please try to create the same documents deliverable, using your current project as a base.

The course has been designed exclusively and I was quite impressed. The course was also easy to follow with step by step practice quizzes that keep you moving. However, one drawback that I faced that in peer review assignments, there are a lot of people who are not yet on the particular level of assignment and once you submit an assignment, the software submits to random peer reviews. This results (mostly) in splitting your grade into two extremes (and that happened to me thrice). This certainly spoils someone's grade. Peer may ruin your work. this need to be tackled on software level. Atleast the assignment should go who has completed the module. Lastly, I thank Mr. Tom Phalen and Mr. Kazimir Kowowski for their utmost dedication to teach this course. I hope the other courses will be much better.
The course is very good and the fundamentals are laid out clearly making it easier for all levels of learners. I particularly liked the reflections part where we get to learn about and reflect upon the real time project management challenges. The only improvement I would suggest is to make the peer grade assignments more objective. Right now they are very subjective and we have all kinds of learners and we are peer grading documents with little knowledge/experience about the specific project. it's very difficult to get any constructive feedback many times. I believe that giving an answer document along with rubric will help in the peer grading.

This is a poorly veiled attempt at selling the PMBOK book. To be clear, the core lessons and definitions that the course provides are perfectly fine. But it's a better use of your time and money to just buy the PMBOK thing and read it and take notes. It will be cheaper and you'll not miss anything. (1/4 of the 'course material' is telling you to read various chapters of that book anyway. And even though they say it's optional, some exam questions are over things not covered in the videos.)
The exams are based on memorization of definitions, not a real understanding of the concepts (always an indicator that the course is not meant to teach things, but to fail as few people as possible). The assignment grading system is calibrated to a point where you can only fail if you submit a completely empty document, or a Gary Larson comic strip or something. For each section of an assignment, you can mark it with 1, 7, 8, 9, or 10 points. And the definitions are such that, if the section *exists* in the delivered assignment, you can't mark it 1. So, the *minimum* you can get from each section is 7 points unless you are a complete idiot.
And make no mistake, there are a LOT of idiots taking this course. Easily 1/3 of the assignments I graded were either completely irrelevant documents. I actually saw, (and I'm not kidding) "a schematic of a control building from the Republic of Iraq Ministry of Electricity" submitted as a deliverable. The sad part is, that is the only one I could easily mark with 1 point in every section. Half of the other assignments I reviewed honestly didn't deserve to pass, but the rubric is so poorly (or actually, *intelligently* calibrated) that I ended up giving them a passing grade. Because god forbid, this course fails *anyone* who is paying €40/mo on this mediocre waste of time.
Just buy the book, and send the "teachers" a message telling them you bought it. I'm certain they will feel happier and more content knowing they managed to peddle that book to one more person.

Great course. Would recommend it for engineers who have collected relevant engineering experience and look for what's next in their career. Looking forward to attending the other modules as well.

This course, I learned a lot about how the project managers play his role in management regarding the organization, material handling, resources available, time, and communication with stakeholders. I think I will apply this knowledge to enhance my management and leadership skills. Thank you so much professors and Coursera for providing me with such a great platform of learning.
por Santiago M P•
Very complete course as an introduction for Project Management Body of knowledge, and rises the foundations to take the other two courses with confidence. As a firts experience in the project management field, was a "easy to follow" course that allows to me gain the basis to start to develop a correctly project management plan in the future. Thanks and great job!

Personally, as an architect who had zero knowledge in project management, this online course taught me so much although this is completely different than my type of work since I'm a designer. I loved the instructors and more importantly, the graphs and visual notes that made it easier and faster to understand the materials of this course.
por Hardik B P•

Thanks RICE university and instructor of this course!
