I was enrolled in the fourth course of the certification "Python for Data Science". All was going well until the final assignment in week 5. The course documentation for the final assignment was outdated and inaccurate. IBM changed the format of their website, but the course instructors did not update the course documentation to reflect that new website changes. Not only is the documentation outdated and completely useless, the instructors are not even providing accurate workarounds to the outdated documentation on the course forum. Many students have / are complaining they are not getting acceptable responses from the instructors. I finally gave up and quit the specialization after I asked for help 4 times in getting around the material defect and my questions went unanswered. I asked for help 4 times and not 1 instructor answered!
Has anyone else experienced this unprofessional behavior from the course instructors, and if so, how did you work around the outdated material? Did you finish the final assignment?
I have to say, I was all pumped and excited about this program and did well in the 1st three courses and did well in this Python course, right up until the final assignment. This is frustrating and completely ridiculous! Very unprofessional on the part of IBM.
