The course is very helpful to us to understand the DC circit analysis a lot.Thank you to the team.As a faculty,I know the concepts well.So directly went to the quiz part.
The course is very good for beginners and lab experiments related to sensors are good .Explanation of concepts with real time applications is a good asset of this course

Course provides you basics, I give it that. The flavour isn't the best, but that's not the problem. The problem is there are a lot of mistakes during the course: in videos, practice quizzes, including grading tests too! Hours and hours of wasted time trying to solve a problem, solve it right and get the "answer is not correct" form the makers. Don't bother reporting those mistakes. Many have tried, me too, no reaction from the makers of this course.

The main content is OK, but the course doesn't seem to have been carefully curated at all. Several problems have the wrong answer key, week 1 had questions only answerable with knowledge from week 2, week 2 sample problems included a ton of problems on components not covered at all in the class (op amps), etc. Forums are basically abandoned as far as I can tell.

Various issues with the course. practice problems don't always align with the lectures. Copious typos and errors in the problems. Course creators seem very lazy. Completely unsupported. Content was good and helpful for refreshers.

I have rated this course with 2 stars since my experience was not too good with this course.
there are many mistakes in the practice problems please take care of them.
par GANESH P B K•
course structure is good and worth a 5 rating but I am rating it 2 only because the mentors are not active at forum and grader is found faulty at times
par Maribel M Z•
Too many error in the grader. You're on your own because no one helps you.

Assignments are very tough.

While looking up courses on electronic circuits, I came across a comment that called this course "one of the worst MOOCs ever". Since this is a rather popular course and the content seemed pretty comprehensive, I decided to try it myself, and I can safely say that comment wasn't far off. This course was one of the most dreadful experiences I've had on this site. The video lectures are of worse quality than your average Youtube video, with presenters that never appear prepared. Several tests include concepts that haven't been covered (or not included at all), and to top it off, a lot contain grading errors. Since apparently this course has been abandoned for a long time, I see no reason why anyone should even bother taking it at this point. In a rare exception as far as Coursera courses are concerned, the only useful part was the discussion forum. Shout out to Dale Garman, their forum posts were more useful and informative than anything in the modules.

I've learned a lot during this course, but that would have been more due to youtube and google searches on the topics brought forward in this rather incoherent course... the video lectures are too short for beginners to get a decent grasp of the subject. I am positively sure that the tutors are experts in this field and I can imagine that this works well as a refresher course for engineers but not for someone like me, a control systems technician trying to upskill into the field of drafting. On a positive note, I've had to brush up on my calculus to get through this, which might come in handy further down the track. It took a lot of determination to sit this one through until the end.

Cannot find any reading material that can be read to learn the course material.
The instructor does not go into enough detail to know how she came up with the answer.
It was said in the beginning that you did not have to know about integers or derivatives, they are constantly referred to frequently without an explanation.
I feel this course is over my head, so I wish to unenroll.
par Vinícius Á E•
Just to warn everyone that aims to do this course:
It's abandoned since the first iteration. It's full of error on autograder and lack some explanation about things that are asked about on quizes (but not to much).
But it has a nice community and almost all errors are pointed on the forums by other students.
It's a relatively good course but there are betters (like on edx).
par Ian R•
This course was abandoned shortly after launching. The assignments are full of errors, the lectures are disjoint, and the discussion forums are full of people trying to navigate these issues. This course doesn't come close to the quality that is expected from either Coursera or Georgia Tech.
par Chandrasekhar A•
The course is very disorganized and disjointed. Plenty of mistakes in the lectures, problem videos, practice questions and even in the quizzes. Many mistakes have been pointed out over 3 years ago. Why haven't Coursera or Gatech done anything about it?
par Astrid C•
I thought that I would take this course to refresh my mechatronics knowledge, but found it much harder to follow than other coursera courses. The large knowledge jumps between lectures and assignments was discouraging and the forums were unhelpful.
par Frank C A•
This course is totally unsupported and haphazardly designed. Lots of quiz/practice material is not explained. Save your money or just audit the course.
par Cyrille M•
so many errors in all the graders, mistake in the syllabus, no active support except by extradordinary community member
par Kevin K•
Unsupported, I don't recommend this class for those looking to enter the field or brush up on existing skills.
par saketh a•
questions in assignments are more advanced than lectures
par Judith S•
There are errors in the exercises.
