The course is fairly advanced and you would need to review the materials many times to understand the concept. The assignments are definitely fun and not as straightforward as other courses.

Superb study material. Learnt a lot during this course. I am not much into mathematical stuff, but got a hang of how to break problems and improve efficiency through parallelism.

Interesting course, very useful to get to know concepts of parallel programming. Assignments could be a little bit simpler but involving more programming from scratch, not just filling in methods bodies. This would help more to understand concepts.

Some problems with downloads and to view videos on the mobile app (Android), with some videos recorded with a low volume.
Despite that interesting and I think would need more time to get deeper in the concepts showed.

I learned very useful programming techniques, but I'm a bit lost as to whether these techniques are "good practices" or if they are "existing parallel programming features in Java, transposed as-is in Scala"

Appreciate the time spent by the authors to prepare all the course materials and the assignments. Everything clear and relatively self-contained. However, I still do not feel to be an expert in parallelism.

The course was really good. Got to learn so much about parallel programming with that course. The explanation level is very basic and any Computer Science related person can easily grasp the concepts

Very good. Only things I wish were better is more comments in some assignments and more prepared tests. Also I miss not having "Statement of Accomplishment" like some other Scala courses :-(.

The assignment could be optimized and avoid to be more academic since it may make student lost focus and spend too much time on the question itself rather than the parallel programming

Its a very good course! perhaps the in the practice code, before jumping into the problems they can provide a couple of simple examples/questions such that the main ideas are learnt.

Very challenging course, the assignments are more about practising using parallel programming, would be better to design an assignment to implement the parallel programming.

For this course you should have Advanced English level. Cause sentesce construction is so difficult and words so unusual that i had to some times google what i have to do.

Very good course overall on the basics of parallel programming in scala. Would have been nice to talk a bit more on the low level setup (parallel and task construct code).

Really good course covering some of the fundamentals of parallel programming, though for me I was hoping it would go into some of the Scala specifics a little more

Assignments are focused on problem-solving rather than the importance of parallelism, missing the point of the lecture. It is a Scala course, so it is always fun!

Good course but scala understanding is required for this course. So please register for prior course in the certification task to easily complete this course.

Assignments are too easy compared to 2 previous courses. I've been asked lot less than been given. And did not grasp everything in the lectures at the end.

Good explanations, relevant assignments.
But too small, too little graded assignments as for subject. Be better if the assignments has less starter code.

I can be further improved if the class can touch on design patterns using Future and Actor, in addition to the data structure oriented materials.

Time to complete exercises might not be completely assessed. Some lectures seem to technical without any correspondence with real problems.

Really a great course but with a heavy work for the duration. If others courses are followed in parallel, there's no time to loose

Very good course. Conc-list was brilliant.
Automated correction tool could do with more verbosity on failed test cases.

Presentations were presented well and the assignments were interestingly varied but quite challenging for the newbie.

Interesting course but math part is too academic and boring. It'll be more useful if focused only in real use cases.

Overall the course was really good. I think the first 2 courses explained things a little bit better though.

The course is good but is not focused on scala features. It is more generic parallel programming approach.

Insightful, though I am not sure if in non R&D/Academia settings the knowledge here can easily be applied.
