I have done a few computer science courses already and some of them were related to embedded systems. This is one of the best so far.\n\nHigher level than a introductory course.\n\nHighly advisable.
The course was excellent for me, as a beginner. Of course, the learning curve was steep and the assignments challenging, but I learnt a lot. Thanks you Coursera and University of Colorado, Boulder.

It's a great course! With all the knowledge acquired in this course I finally get a solid base of Embedded Systems. In a practical way, I had to do a lot of research for the assignments, specially for the one of Makefiles. It's a lot of theory in the videos, but reduced practice, so I had to do several hours of my own research to get things done on the assignments.

Course material delivery is of good quality. Peer reviews coding assignments are good to check if the assignments are implemented correctly. It would be good to have more assigments similar to the Final Assessment from this course, where the there are certain tests that must pass as it helps in establishing a validation criteria.

Although it is in introductory course, it is in fact an intermediate course and the learning curve is really good. The instructor has done a good job. The only disadvantage is, there are no active moderators and you have to wait until your peers review your assessments which sometimes takes weeks together.

There seemed to be a few bugs in the final exam outline that I had to work around. Overall content is a helpful introduction to build systems and cross-compiling, with a high-level overview of embedded system architecture. I don't like the requirement to pay to submit assignments.

Material good and well presented, the programming assignements are fun but the quizzes are sometimes ambiguous and give you a 'hit or miss' feeling...Overall, I learnt a lot and I'm thankful for that.

Actually very well explained and goes straight to the point wich is very good. The pace might be a bit fast for students who does not have any experience with EmbSys.

The course is good in general esp the contents but the assignment part has loophole that people use just to get them passed without doing any work.

Very informative course if you don't know about memory sections and Makefiles. But the last programming assignment is a bit uneasy.
by Venkata R C•
Excellent course. Could do with more videos on Makefile and more interaction of the instructors and mentors in the forums.

If you want to learn about gcc, git and memory segment basic then this course is best for you.

Was very helpful, I can now understand the hardware level functions of an embedded system

Course content structure and refresher question in between video was very useful.

Good material. Too much specialty jargon, difficult for non-CS majors.

It'd be even better if it's available with teacher's online help ;)
by Kaijun F•
Very helpful information, but sometimes a little bit overwhelming.

Good Concepts on Embedded, sadly MSP432 board will never be used

Great course, give you a big picture. But where is course 2?
by Vidhi V V•
It was amazing and great...Learn something completely new.

Good class, good knowledge gained, great instructor

that is a great course

Good and easy contant and well explain
But i become so disappointed with the assessment it's so hard and not match the content
I agree it's about the learning contant but it's not easy like it
There weren't many examples to understand the assessment and do it easily
I made many Searches on Google to understand and to be able to do the assessment
I suggest and hope that you prepare some new videos to practice more and to be able to solve my assessment problems

I learned a lot! I think the assignments need to be explained in a better way, sometimes they get really confusing and the instructions are not in order sometimes. As college student still, it gets pretty confusing on the assignments, I was lucky to enroll in the course with 3 other peers and we helped each other when we got stuck. Besides this, I did learned many things.

The course is good and well structured, but do not expect any support from the instructor or moderators during the course. There is no way for you to review a decision during peer reviews. I had to upload the same submissions again due to incompetent peers marking my answers as wrong.

An interesting course but the assignment goals aren't always the clearest. While i understand the importance of code reviews, I don't believe that they are the best way to grade assignments due to the varying skill levels of persons taking the course.
