    Great for learning how to cut and paste. If the code actually worked it would be even better … And don’t forget week 4 where you can try to answer a quiz from a different course in order to progress … such fun !

    Some really useful stuff but when it came to the technical bits there was little to no explanation just a set of instructions … “FOLLOW THIS”… “TYPE THIS” but no learning involved, just regurgitation. I’ve done the previous 4 courses, all of which were good but this one is awful

    The final assignment was much harder than everything we’ve been taught in the class and it was hard to get help, probably because many students had problems with it. I went through Lab 4 and Week 6 assignment many times and tried all suggestions in this forum and still cannot get Watson Assistant connect to the second collection. $webhook result 2 returns null, error message says Dialog node error Webhook call was not successful. Response code is [400]. (and there are 2 more errors in the log). Course Recommendation worked just fine even if I completely mess up the serverless.yml file. I tried all sorts of things and nothing works. Something is stuck here I could delete serverless.yml and CourseAdvisor.js and the Course Recommendation would still work, but there is no way I can connect the second collection. I checked Webhook authorization many times, deleting and re entering, it did not help. Something was stuck somewhere in the process. Only after deleting both the Help Center collection and IBM Cloud Function and rebuilding them it finally worked. It would be good if there are a way to refresh the connection to Discovery after the second collection was added instead of deleting and rebuilding. This may be a problem with IBM Watson services integration that needs to be addressed.

    Terrible class. You don’t do any programming and everything’s presented for you. You just copy pasta your IBM credentials and that’s it. The instructions for the final were hastily put together and unclear. It’s in stark contrast to the other classes in the certification and highly disappointing. Stick to something that’s not IBM sponsored. The university courses offer more to them.

    Content was ok but the labs constantly needed help from the lab assistants as many instructions were not current with the way IBM Watson was set up. Errors were constantly happening despite following the instructions to the letter and this resulted in an extra month of being charged for the course. Those involved with setting up the course need to continually checking that their instructions are working with the labs.

    Seems like some of the labs are outdated since the commands usually dont work and also instructions are unclear. The weakest course in the specialization so far!

    This Course is not strong as the first 4 courses in the IBM Applied Specialization, and the labs are weak, as I’m following the steps, but in many cases I cannot understand why I’m doing these steps, especially when telling you to copy and paste python code without explaining what this code can do.

    The overall course is very good to get an overview about the sophisticated applications you can use, but the instructions in the Labs are sometimes inprecise, which decreases the quality of the course.

    the materials are great, except that I’ve never run into more problems with the labs than this course! I think the lab instructions need some updates. I had to resort to forums to get through my labs, which should not be the case in the first place!

    The information contained in the course is great and professionally delivered. However, the labs are a nightmare. Looks like they are a beta version rushed into production. Vague instructions, missing information between steps. Moreover, the current versions of the services on IBM cloud differ from what is presented in the lab guides. Never struggled so much with any lab on Coursera so far. Spent more time troubleshooting, googling and digging through discussion forums than actually doing lab work.

    In spite of the subject of the course is awesome, the course per se is not really good. It has failures in the LABs and the Capstone project hints that delayed my completion. I was charged for the course and I don’t really think it is fair since my delay was caused by the lack of correct instructions and because the instructors were not really helpful. I would not recommend this course to a friend.

    Lots of cut and pasting, obscuring understanding why not use Notebooks and incorporate questions and adjustments to confirm understanding? I couldn’t get facebook chatbot integration to work the developer dialogue was not as shown for me. Had to refer to forum for ‘bug’ fixes. In occasion, quiz didn’t seem to be covered in material. There should have been more on alternate Google etc. methods.

    Disapointing course in my opinion. You are asked to create a lot of things without even really understanding what you are doing (ie: python code). At the end you have a basic chatbot that you can upgrade to meet your more sophisticated needs. In my case, I have struggled for weeks to pass the final assignment because there was a technical problem with my IBM cloud and its connections. The technical support was present to help though.

    This was by far the most disappointing course I have taken to date. While the top line learning objective are important, this course should probably be suspended by IBM/Coursera as part of any certificate path until the MANY bugs are fixed and some sort of independent review of the material is conducted. One look at the hundreds of complaints, questions, and confusing coding explanations in the discussion forum is enough to prove that this course needs serious work. I have no doubt that the course creators and the staff that are trying to help the paying students are excellent computer programmers, but you may need to get one of two professors with EDUCATION EXPERIENCE to ensure that the course makes sense, that the instructions and the provided syntax relate to each other, and that the numerous new updates to the different coding platforms are taken into account to update the course more regularly. I am hopeful that the future course in IBM’s AI certificate paths are better prepared than this one.

    Several of the labs were poorly written or (worse; in my opinion) out of date to the point where they no longer accurately represented how to successfully interface with IBM Cloud products. As of 02/16/2020, the course needs revision to make it current.

    This course was outstanding in the skills that it gave me! Not only did I learn how to incorporate the services I needed to make a chatbot extremely useful from a commercial standpoint, but it also taught me to use the tools that are needed to build it! I give Coursera 2 thumbs up for its support and Value!

    The course material can be made a little more user friendly, especially the instructions in the labs. I ran into multiple issues also because the labs.cognitive.ai was down for a quite a while when I was taking the course had to come back 2 3 days in a row to proceed with the course.

    I honestly expected more from this course. Overall, the topics are interesting. However, they are poorly presented. There’s a lot of confusing information throughout the modules and some of them are very obscure. From lab 4 onward, things got a clunky aspect: missing information, images that didn’t correspond to the text explanation and outdated guidelines are some of the main issues. I got stuck many times. Then I tried to check the forum in order to understand what I should do but a lot of issues were solved with workarounds. The final project is also disappointing. In summary, it’s a trial and error experience. Sometimes the explanations were also too vague. It seemed the author removed information on purpose. I think the explanations should cover the essential and that didn’t happen. One final comment: we spent a huge amount of time implementing a chatbot on Facebook Messenger and Slack. But these important accomplishments were not even fully deployed. So much effort for nothing. I expected to make my chatbot a public app on Messenger, but that didn’t happen either. These are my impressions. In the end, I feel like I just follow a bunch of steps without fully understand them in order to finish the course. I don’t think I developed any skill with this course in particular.

    The Cognitive Class website to execute Jupyter notebooks is not what you would expect of a course provided by IBM and for a course that one is paying for. From what I saw in the discussion forum, it is not a new problem and has been performing in this extremely poor manner for months. The instructions for the capstone project are carelessly provided and it is a frustrating experience instead of being a challeging and enjoyable one.
