I enjoyed this class. It does provide a good over-view of the different machine learning algorithms and their practical applications. My only qualm was that the programming assignments seemed somewhat irrelevant as the underlying structure of the different machine learning algorithms had not been taught.
Simple materials and clear explanations on concepts. A good course to begin with. However, students will be using graphlab (a python package for machine learning) in the entire specilizaiton instead of other common packages like pandas and scikit-learn. Beginners may feel a bit hard to implement some of the algorithms using those common packages. Also, if you choose to use scikit-learn instead of graphlab for the assignment, your answers may differ from which they use to grade the assignment.
