Although I felt the course could have had more meat, the content was pretty good.
Good overview of computational social science concepts and serves to ignite interest in this exciting field.
Excellent course for beginners, or those curious to learn more on computational social sciences that don't have a strong technical background.
It really helped me in finding that how many things can I do with social data and what new problems can be solved with social networks
