  1. Python made simple
    Reviewed by

    This is my first course with coursera and I was fascinated by the way how top universities teach. Though I had some understanding of programming concepts like C, C++ and object oriented programming, learning python was not so tough. The instructor made things simple and the sessions were interactive. I thoroughly enjoyed this distance learning course.
