  1. Jupyter Notebook cannot be loaded!!!

    This is frustrating, I purchased the course on edx in a hope to learn. Yet I cannot even open my first lab

  2. Allow direct linking to an existing notebook

    A good enhancement would be to allow direct linking to an existing notebook. Instead of automatically creating a duplicate, with a suffix, why not just open the existing notebook.

  6. Allow folder synchronization with Google Drive

    It would be great if we could selectively sychronize folders with google drive / dropbox as it would allow us to automatically backup the code as well as the data. In addition it would be possible to synchronize these with local devices which in turn can allow us to work on the code in local machines which are running in areas with poor internet connectivity.

  7. I should be able to import the datasets in /my-data/ directly into a tool I want to use

    In the /my-data/ page, when I click on a dataset like "medals.csv", I'd like to see a popup menu asking menu which tool I want to use it with (OpenRefine/RStudio/Zeppelin/Jupyter). Whichever I choose, it should automatically open a notebook with the correct import command. E.g., it show create a new notebook containing
    > import pandas as pd
    > medals = pd.read_csv("correctpath/medals.csv")

  8. Getting started with the Workbench

    I think you should lead visitors to your site through a recommended path: What should they do first and second? Can they pick some in preference to some others and still learn what they want to learn? How much of prerequisite knowledge should they have? Hold my hands and take me in, instead of expecting me to poke here and there.

  10. Fix Connectivity Issues

    I understand the convenience of these tools being cloud-based, but they continually have connectivity issues or lag. There are massive disruptions and it's a huge hassle or it's very frustrating to lose work. The quality of the course suffers.

  11. Display usage info within the My Data section

    The "My Data" section should show how much disk space is being used, versus the available quota. Both in absolute terms and as a percentage.

  12. I need an option to copy path of my file/dataset in "My Data"

    I have to concatenate "/resource/data" and "file name" every time I need to use a dataset in my notebook. It would be great if I had "Copy Path" in "My Data"

  17. Informative message for waking up a DSWB

    In awaking message after hibernate, I just see that my DSWB is awaking up and it takes 30 minutes. but I dont know why it has been hibernated. As a user, I should know why my notebook has hibernated. My suggestion is a message like: "Because you have not used your DSWB for long time (1 month) your noteboook has hibernated. Now we are restoring/awaking it up again for you which takes 30 minutes"

  19. Suggestion

    More than an idea it is a suggestion.
    SNL is a great platform for educational purpose but it is really hard to stay focus when it has such poor performances as those I am experiencing in these days attending the IBM Data Science Professional Certificate on Coursera. Please solve these problems. Thank you! Federico Tomasi

  20. Adding 7z compression/decompression tools

    Data needed to be uploaded/download may be huge. 7z format is widely used and one of the best existing formats fo far.
    Adding support for this compression format would be great
