Initially it seemed easy and what I already knew... but the week 3 and 4 had alot of new and interesting stuff. It was great eventually... Especially the OS part and some practicals

Excellent introduction to Embedded Systems development that could serve as platform for further studies and research. A valuable pedagogy.

It's very clear and easy to learn. The speaker used simple way to elaborate OS and ESP. To sum up, it is a excellent course!

Instructor is very good.His explanation about CONTIKI is simple super.Course Structure is very good.But,in my opinion require little bit elaborated explanation about ASSIGNMENT.Rather than everything is fine.
Thanks to COURSERA.

Good Introduction to Embedded Systems and operating systems, discuss interesting topics and the architecture of OS, a little hard and challenging but it worth it.

Final assignment is very interested but unclear and lack of supporting document or material to help student finish assignment correctly.

Good introduction to embedded systems development with "OS". but it needs to include better & more code examples

The course has a lot of useful information. It is paced very well for their intended audience (undergraduate/graduate students).
It should be improved in terms of assignments, practice and mention more resources for further reading/practice.

This course gave me an overview on the Embedded Hardware and Operating System. It is not particularly designed for hands-on experience or practical skills. But still, a good course for beginners like me.

It gives a brief introduction to everything. But sometimes it is hard to understand because the lectures are without any figures or charts.

Well, I thank the teacher and his team for the effort to make the course available.
So, the course is not intermediate or beginner level.
If you know something about embedded system:
It's a good reminder with a bunch of topics that are only quoted and not explained in depth. No topic goes deeper, you have to do it by yourself it's like "Embedded systems can be classified as to dependability ( reliable, safe, secure, maintanable, etc), now go by yourself and search for it."
If you know nothing about embedded system:
Probably you are to feel a little bit effort and you're going to make a hard effort to understand something. Classes will be like " In the world there are processors, microcontroller, FPGA, ASIC and they have certain things(SRAM, peripherals, etc) and then you use them to build aerospace avionics, good look.
The course should use more drawings ( flowchart, diagram), it would be much more understandable. Too many topics you can't bring to the real world.
The course has a nice tittle. But, I wish this course was seperated in longer modules or courses, because there are too many topics for very few time... so you wont learn anything really solid.
1- Designing embedded - Raise requirements for project based on real project ( eg. temperature and humidity sensor to work battery powered, show information in a display the information of temp and humidity. Must be reliable, safe, low power consumption ) and so on. Learn how to search for components, price, availability, datasheet.
2 - FPGA - How to implement the project above using a platform ( or at least simulation). Program in VHDL or Verilog.
3 - Processor - ...
4 - MCU - ...
5 - Building firmware in C - Develop firmware without OS. Use state machines of things like that
6 - Build firmware with an OS.
7 - Drawing PCB - Ariiise board!!!
So, I just gave an idea I do not know how difficult would it be to bring to reality

The topic is definitely interesting. The course, however, does not go very deep into the topic. The assignments are not well explained and the grading criteria is severely deficient and does not help students or reviewers understand what is expected. The assignments are not well coupled with the presented material. Week 4 Assignment 2, for example, is about Contiki/Cooja analysis tools, but there is no such topic covered in the course.
