Duration: 12 hours
Completed ‘Human-Computer Interaction’ course offered by Scott Klemmer, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Stanford University. This course was offered through Coursera.org
The course started on 28th May and the duration was 5 weeks. It explored the design techniques and processes that help you build interfaces and technologies that bring people joy rather than frustration. Some of the contents I found similar to Mircosoft Silverlight learning site – Design toolbox. Overall it was a very good introduction to the way interfaces should be designed.
Completed ‘Machine Learning’ course offered by Andrew Ng, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Stanford University. This course was offered through Coursera.org
The course started on 23rd April and the duration was 10 weeks. It was an exhilarating opportunity to learn about this cutting edge field. The distinctive feature of the course was weekly programming assignments in Octave which were automatically evaluated by Coursera.org. Also the course was very well organized, we can expect that as it was offered by the co-founder of Coursera.
