This course gives very well knowledge about different types of visualization techniques and helps to start with visualization. Coursera provided an amazing course with an amazing instructor.

The course is very good. Intuitive and easy to follow. The real challenge is in the peer review exercises, where your patience is tested. You really have to work hard to get all the solutions to the questions. There are so many things that the course just can't teach you in the time constraints.

A great course for you to further understand the mechanics of data visualisation as well as providing a space for you to familiarise and test your understanding on the subject matter.

This course was nice but there were extra stressors that weren't included in the course.

This is the only course so far where the videos have not been helpful. They were repetitive-- we do not need to learn how to do the same transformation on the dataframe 10 times. The videos didn't show or explain any of the code like in the previous courses. The final assignment covered code we didn't even look at at all during this course.

This course did not went into the depth and breadth as per expectation after following previous course. In my personal opinion as PhD myself with history of teaching for 4 years, the content is not enough to make a separate course. This course can be included as part of data analysis course itself as separate week worth of lesson.

While I enjoyed the content of this course, I feel that the instruction was disorganized. This course is part of a beginner sequence in data science, but the teacher assumes certain advanced skills are already known and does not teach them. For example, chart annotation is only briefly covered in the second lab, but the final assignment requires a depth of knowledge not taught in this course. If that's the case then chart annotation should be taught as its own section. A lot of the quizzes are written to trick you with ambiguous phrases, rarely do they actually test what is learned in the labs. I think the teaching in the other IBM data science courses is far better than this one, hopefully they improve this one.

I have done other 2 courses in this specialization....but frankly speaking, this course was far better than those....the type of things that we handled in the lab was very interesting and also intriguing....in other courses, the labs were just about the same as the video lectures....no new things except one or two....but here, they were very thorough and we learnt a great deal of things outside of the video lectures.....
About the final assignment, i thought it would be boring and very noobish as i experienced in other two course....but to my surprise it was so great....it just put what i learnt in this course to a test and i had to do everything by myself....it was quite unlike the other ones where i was baby-fed by giving most of the code in a notebook and completing the rest which was so easy that it rarely felt like an assignment let alone the final one.....
And that is why loved this course very much.....about the labs, about what i learnt and about the final assignment....i genuinely think these are gonna help me to accomplish my goal for what i took this course....
And i would like to request the course instructors and maintainers to make other courses in this specialization like this one especially the labs and final assignment.

The course really highlights the power of Python's visualisation. It is really cool to see the charts as well as map functionality that comes free with Python. With some basic programming experience, far more powerful visuals can be created than some very high-end off the shelf programs. I really liked the features such as Word Cloud as well as Choropleth maps.
1 The videos can be a trimmed a bit - Almost every video re-iterated the data cleanup exercise, which got repeatitive after the first 2 videos.
2 More examples of map related lab exercises would be very helpful for those like me who want to delve into this further.

Жаль, что я не начал знакомство с Python вообще, и с данной темой в частности, с данного курса. Но лучше поздно чем никогда . Все курсы данной специализации от IBM заслуживают высшей оценки - такой проработанной подачи материала, такого уровня подготовки я не встречал.
Все курсы из данной специализации - это готовые методички, которые можно потом использовать в повседневной работе. Ничего лишнего, всё по делу. Спасибо всем, кто принимал участие в создании курсов данной специализации от IBM - я восхищен!

The course is great , especially with the support of the instructor. However, because we do not have solutions for final assignment, I do not know whether my code/code structure was appropriate, efficient, effective, smart, tidy even the result was correct. Code structures also my concern. I coded 5-6 lines, steps to get the correct result while others may use only 1 line to get one. That's really matter i think so.

This course focused on hands on examples for practicing Matplotlib and python on IBM cognitive lab for data visualization using different tools. Also all videos and lecturers made are great and helpful to show graph, plot , charts and maps. The course contents are clear, precise and lecturer is very knowledgeable.
Joining and getting help from course mates and moderates in discussion forum is Excellent!

Firstly, I want to thank wholeheartedly to the instructor Alex Akson sir, all the lab sessions were great. The content was very elegantly balanced as it was neither hard nor easy, I feel like I learnt a lot of things. The explanation of every plot/topic was very easy . Final assignment took a little bit more time but it was totally worth it. Thank you again for teaching this course. I appreciate all your efforts.

This course was fun, interesting and challenging. The final assessment was a true challenge because it require a combination of materials that were covered in the course, but also required a bit of additional information and expertise as well. Finishing those assignments gave me much more confidence in my ability to perform these kinds of assignments in real engagements and assignments.

One of the best courses in the certification. The assignment is tougher than previous courses and that is one of the reasons I loved the course. Also, the labs are very well structured and presented. Gives a nice overview of Pandas in the 1st lab.
Overall, I think this instructor is very good at communicating his ideas and has a good grasp on what his teaching goal and methodology.

I thought this course was a bit tough but still very interesting. I gained lots of insights and ideas on Data Visualization methodology and techniques and I am looking forward to applying this knowledge going forward. Recommended course if you want to get good insight and ideas on how to work with data viz and how to prepare the data in order to present it more professional.

In this IBM program, the discussion forum is well managed.
Whenever I posted my questions, I got help from teaching staff.
Although there is a variability in response time, they responded to all my questions.
Thanks to that, I managed to pass this course with 100% grading.
Especially, I want to give a good credit to Lakshmi Holla for mentoring the students including me.

Thanks to instructors. But as always a few improvements are possible. 1) Personally I missed the voice of the speaker from previous 2 courses. 2) I think that extra quizes inside the lessons will be very useful - Don't hesitate to add more tasks for students as intermediate progress assessment.
Anyway, I gained a valuable Data Vis experience from this course. Thanks!

There were some issues I spent a lot of time on in the final assessment. The first was loading the file into the notebook. The second was troubleshooting the choropleth map. I had written the key_on code slightly wrong. You can consider explaining in some more detail how to upload files - and also the code you use - !get.
The course was all in all very interesting.

I thought the syllabus will cover only matplotlib and seaborn. I didn't expect to learn geospatial data visualization in this course. I learnt a great deal about folium and it's versatility. I feel it's a great addition to the course. Such modules will enable aspiring data scientists to expand their domain knowledge and excel in unorthodox data science areas.

Not sure if the creator gave enough tips and tricks to help provide solutions for the final assignment. I had to use alternate solutions not provided.
The examples given are good but quite simple in places, and only work in specific circumstances. This may be because there are simply too many solutions to go through in this short course.
