This is a great course in parallel programming. The videos were very clear, summaries reinforced the video material and the programming projects and quizzes were challenging but not overwhelming.

Great course. Introduces Parallel Programming in Java in a gentle way.\n\nKudos to Professor Vivek Sarkar for simplifying complex concepts and presenting them in an elegant manner.

Helpful course but could be much improved by a bit longer lectures and programming exercises covering more Java material, avoiding mixing in so much on proprietary library concepts and focusing on standard Java parallel programming concepts instead as well as making source code demonstrations in a bit larger font to be able to view on a phone

Subject is very interesting. However course is sometimes unclear, and assignments sometimes are related with the specific library developed by the professor, not with the generic Java implementations. However I'm happy to have completed this course, i've learned a lot.

Although much of the content was informative and well taught, half of the programming assignments were either rudimentary or completely unnecessary since the answer was given in the provided file. On the whole, this course was just too short and too easy.

The videos were very well done. The exercises were a bit too easy in my opinion. But the exercises did focus on the issue at hand, unlike some other courses that get you stuck on complicated but unrelated issues used only as an example problem.

Provides background material for the course on concurrency in the same specialization. Assignments are trivial.

I would prefer see examples based on standard Java code, not in a library developed for some small group.

A very good introductory course only rating 3 star because the projects did not feel greatly involving.

good coverage of basics.. would have been great if there were few more coding practice papers.

Heavy theory but poor practical. Need more enhancement for the next time.

Good overview, but less details

I spent 6 days on this course, and I feel it is not worth the time. One of the problems is that the lectures are overly basic, and the mini projects are not challenging, at least not in a helpful way (quizzes are sometimes challenging due to some concepts not covered in the lectures at all). I guess the instructor did not really spent much time preparing the materials and assignments.

Not sure it deserves the money, YouTube has more content, but I love the prof dress
