This last course is much more challenging than the prior four, but provides a very good launch pad for taking what you've learned and getting you actually using the skills in building Python code.
This course gave great insight in how to approach a new library which I believe is one of the most powerful skills a programmer can have. Keep up the great work that you guys have been doing.

I took this class because it was part of the Python 3 specialization (the last course actually).
The main advantage of the course is the introduction to Jupyter Notebooks. A big plus for me.
But the content is very (too) specific and quite in contrast with the broader applications of the 1st 4 classes in the specialization cycle. And if the idea was to deepdive in a real world application, I get it, but then it would probably have needed to be something a bit more interesting and useful (like pyplot or django).
Finally, and that's the big drawback, the end project was a nightmare, an absolute waste of time. The Coursera platform could simply not handle the required homework. It would run slow (if ever), not accept anything but the raw code (all messed up). The forum is crammed with people asking for a review of their submission, without proper moderation, drowning the more interesting content.
Fortunately I found a work around by running everything locally and posting the Notebook on my own site. But there should have been much better coordination between UMich and Coursera on the submission format.

This course is too ambitious in trying to achieve what it expects of a novice programmer in 3 weeks. PILLOW, TESSERACT and OPENCV are good libraries but will easily take a novice programmer even with some experience in programming at least 3 months to learn and apply what's used. The poor quality of lecture and pedagogy in this course adds on to the woe of students like me trying to figure out what is exactly being taught in this course and how to apply this in the real world. Any student taking this course will emerge feeling as if we don't have good grasp of the concepts and topics which is a shame given the amount of time, and not to mention money spent.

Although the course had very interesting material, the projects were much more difficult than the previous courses. The lectures were quick and confusing and did not provide enough information to complete the assignments. The project files were huge and took between 15 minutes and over an hour for each run of the assignment. Smaller project files could have been used to accomplish the same goals. If this was not the last course in the specialization, I would have given up just because how long to took to run the project files.

Not terrible, but enrolling in this course is a bit like gambling: either you win a lot, or you lose a lot. The assignments are VERY hard, in relation to the other assignments in the Specialization, and since they only allow you to input one file as a submission you have to run TWO huge programs on zipfiles, instead of just being able to run on one zipfile, and then do the other zipfile later. But, as I said, if you ARE able to do the course, you will gain a lot of experience. Choose wisely.

I Think this course is not for beginners,besides i'am a beginner i had very tough time to solve the assignments and the instructor had taught so fast like newsreader.
if you really want to learn the pillow,tesseract and opencv don't take this course.This instructor had another course applied data science with python.
Finally as a beginner i felt very challenged and i've done some digging on the modules and the libraries on my own and solved the problems

Not very relevant to the use of Python especially in the context of finishing up a specialization. The other courses are excellent and this good if the reason you are learning python is to do OCR or ultimately computer vision. Would have been better if the 'exploration of libraries' and research were applied to multiple domain areas of python use such as mashups, workflow orchestration, data analysis, etc....

This course was the final course of the Python 3 Programming Specialisation and it was a frustrating experience overall. Compared to the first four parts (which were great experiences), this one doesn't fit in at all. It's a bit mind blowing how different it is from the first 4 parts actually.
The subject is interesting though.

the lectures are virtually useless as they do not add information to the stuff provided in the notebooks. the in-person explanations are hard to follow because the lecturer talks about code in terminals for consecutive minutes without showing any sort of code on screen. the final project submission format was a nightmare.
創建者 Dmytro F•
The course did not meet my expectations. Sometimes it was boring enough. Sometimes it was annoying, especially the tips for the first part of the project. They are so confusing that it's better not to watch them at all. But if you get through this, you can learn something new too.

All the other 4 courses in this specialization were very good, the instructions provided in other 4 courses were much better than this one. I personally would not recommend this 5th course to anyone cause you need to personally search for many things and takes very long time

This course should be improved. The difficulty of this course is really high compared to all courses in the specialization. The explanations were not enough to guide you through completing the assignment. The grading system was not effective and not so helpful.

While this gives a good insight in advanced image processing and word detection, each topic like pillow, teseract and opencv need a complete certification on its own. It is difficult to complete project in this based on limited knowledge in this.

Too much Too fast in this class.
I did not learn much to be honest
The text in the slides shown during the lecture were real too small
I really did not enjoy this class sinec everything was taught SO FAST....

I don't think its a good course to do because it directly covers the main content and the basics are not too supportive for the main project and the mentor is not too good.
創建者 Michal K•
Too much information in short amount of time, no actual way to practice or go step by step to actually build this knowledge. In general interesting topic
創建者 Dhillan S•
Previous courses of this specialization were structured properly but this last was not properly designed.
Hence, I had lost the interest to complete.

Bad explanation of the topic and frustrating final assignment. It is a very bad course unlike the previous four of this specialization.

Not for beginners at all. The projects are very challenging and tedious. The first 4 courses were excellent though.

I'm So disappointed with this course, I do not recommend this course but the other four were excellent.

Not really connected to the rest of the specialization. Overall quite disappointing finish.

Too difficult and boring. Its a pity because i know the professor is good.
