There needs to be some more emphasis on accomplishing peer graded assignments. Some folks arent getting their assignments graded in a timely manner.

It was great and with a lot of useful information!

However, I would have liked more prompt questions in the videos like the course on Foundamentals.

This was a great course! I do wish we were able to see "correct" answers for our peer graded assignment. Many peers had a lot of different answers.
