Not organised as it should be,most material is translations in English and not good at all actually.

In all,i abandoned the course after seeing the first week material and tried exercises.Nothing is clear about this course.Better try the official octave tutorials or find prof.Ng's introduction to octave from the machine learning course he gave on coursera i think it was.

The course was useful for understanding how to create functions in MATLAB. Translations to English were not the greatest however could be followed with a bit of extra effort. Activities and exercises were engaging and interesting for someone who is studying Physics.

All the material along the course it's excelent, i have learn a lot. As an introduction, it's quite good.

Thank you very much for your work.

The only thing i think you can improve it's the translation of the videos, there are some mistakes in the subtitles files. Then, the course will be just perfect.

This course is stupendous for beginners it will help them to develop basics of matlab and will surely create interest among them and inspire them to do more advanced things in matalb.Will be more happy if they had included Simulink in it.
