What people are saying

social computing

This course was useful for me to better understand the field of social computing, but didn't feel as concrete in that it felt more theoretical I didn't get to practice hard skills, unlike in the previous courses (design principles, human-centered design).

I think it could be awesome as a Part 1 and Part 2, or maybe you all could offer an Advanced Social Computing course.

I found the social computing session was interesting Good explanation of concepts, would be better if add more interaction Best Course This course was not interesting compared to the others in the specialization.

Leaves you wanting to read and learn more about social computing.

I learned a lot regarding the social computing, learned about websites I haven't heard till now, l found more about exploring and searching and the utilization of internet tools.

Amazing course with a lot of secrets about social computing from USA to other countries :) It was interesting to learn via Coursera.

It also seemed to be more tenuously connected to the overall course topic/goals Social computing - this is a whole new world to me.

social networks

I'm interested in the practical side of interaction design for the enterprise, and am not designing another social startup.I grew up using social networks and this course seems better aimed at people who have less exposure to that aspect of the internet/technology.

Excellent course, provides tools needed to design applications based on social networks You will thank yourself for taking this course up.

Started off strong, but is missing the key aspects of social networks and how to integrate their prevalence into our designs.

Handy information I don't think introduction needed to be stretched so long but it was good :) I wish there were more in depth study of social networks and real life situations While explaining the examples, the video tends to divert from the main topics.
