The course is really a very basic introduction of Python for Data Science. No previous knowledge of computing or data science is required to complete it. The course consists of 6 lessons, each one made of a short video lecture (<5 min), 3-4 multiple choice questions which are a direct application and a lab section that takes you to an external website (datacamp) where you have some 5 or 6 coding exercises with a little bit of additional info, and not very difficult. The whole course can be completed in 3-6 hours depending on how familiar you are with Python. Overall, I considered it a bit easy and shallow but informative.
Highly recommendable. This is an outstanding and truly enjoyable introductory course with a serious academic level. You will have to work 10-12 hours/week. I liked the progressive approach taken to teach the subjects. Didactic (and fun) video lessons; concise and clear board notes; problems and quizzes with outstanding (and very professionally presented) answer sections, which were very helpful to consolidate the acquired knowledge. Dr. Socrates and staff were always available to promptly answer any question. It offers a short review of the basic math and physics concepts required. You also get an introduction to MATLAB and finite element approach using the Akselos software.
