This course was really interesting and did a good job introducing complicated topics in usefully simplified form. It was a pleasure to listen to the instructor and I got everything I wanted out of it.
I have not found an easy way to learn how to code with python language. Mentor are really helpful and Dr Chuck is one of the most self explain professor that I have met in my three university career.

All around, not as easy as previous courses, but the reference material and quizes/assignments were interesting and helpful.

The first two courses needed to completed this course successfully.
difficult to me. However, I have learned a lot of about web services. How to retrieve
web data with python and manipulate them. From week 1 to week 4 was, how can you
retrieve web pages, how to request a server and get back web data using some python
libraries like urllib(a python library to retrieve web page). Overall, for the assignments
you have to know programming logic a little bit. After retrieve web pages you need to work
with data. So you have to know conditon, loop, list, dict etc. All the assignments of this
course is calculate sum or count of a list of data.
The last two weeks you will get familiar with xml and json. These two is the communication system for
service provider and consumer. How easy they communicate and exchange their data.
It uses for the service oriented approach mostly.

Solid course, just like the first two. Level clearly increases from the basics, you gotta use everything you've learned so far. A shame that some of the google API content discussed has become less relevant/useful now that google has moved the data behind a paywall.
4 instead of 5 because of unclear discussion of "REST" in the final week. It isn't discussed in the actual lecture videos or discussed in the book, yet is brought up in the quiz. Repeated confused questions in the the discussion board (plenty of which are years old at this point) have not changed this.
A big shame that the staff in the discussion often seems frustrated with the students, making their answers less than helpful, even rude. Perhaps the team is too small or the workload to heavy? Given the price of coursera I would expect better.

Love you Dr. Chuck, your course is amazing. But I think I do not quite understand some of the sophisticated terms like serialization. If you can add some analogies it would be perfect!

This course is very good except the API part. I think they must upgrade this part and elaborate this concept.

it is a good course

I think the integration between extracting data from local documents (2nd course) to extracting data from web documents (this course) was awesome. I have some experience managing JSON and HTML syntax, and I had no problems on the assignments. However, the course's covering REST and APIs were rushed, and I think the assignments were not that challenging, because they could be done by modifying the last lines of the provided sample code (I recommend writing all the code by yourself).
If you want to have full understanding of the concepts involved in this course, you have to research A LOT. But, as Dr. Chuck said, the goal here is to at least tell you that that stuff exists.

Compared to other Python Courses I have taken this is course has no meat on them bones and is NOT worth $80 at all even for a certificate. However for FREE? ok. Worth the introduction to some useful tools. Spend your time and money on a more valuable course like Fundamentals of Computing Specialization, which is awesome, and is about the same price as of this writing.
This course offers no challenge, little content, and the assignments let me down. Assignments are basically handed to you where you only need to alter one line of text to get the right answer on what is supposed to take an hour.
Introduction to Interactive Programming in Python thru Rice U has content and weekly mini projects that really push your learning ability and after taking the courses, I felt like I really got something out of it.
This course barely scratches the surface of "Accessing Web Data" and does nothing to challenge your coding skills. The positive side, it introduces you to Web API's, the basics of Beautiful Soup, and other BUZZWORDS. At least structure assignments to combine all of the efforts learned in previous chapters onto one another.
Side note... what is the professor doing filming lectures on vacation or at lunch? This does nothing to add to the content of the course and is distracting and unprofesh.
The meaningless assignments let me down.
