Great into to Java, instructors have clearly put thought in to the format with the choose your own learning style videos, and additional coverage where it may be needed. These have been very helpful.
I loved this course! The course videos and the projects sharpened my idea about some of the toughest concepts of Java and OOP. I recommend this course to anyone interested in learning OOP in Java. ☺

The course theory is good, instructor works very hard to do their best, But the problem is the resource is out-dated , can't run on latest ver. of java .

Peer reviews was unfair. It's must be any methods to exclude inadequate learners from reviewing. Blacklists is only one way to stop them now.

Everything is fine but in final assignment we face lots of difficulty to submission.
So my humble request is to resolve this issue.
par MOHAMMAD H•
the scope of explanation is sometimes tight and the final assignments need you to learn by your self from outside resources

Very basic Course. It involves a lot of GUI Concepts which may not be useful for general programmers.
par Sree P K D•
coordination is required between the lectures and the assignments so a to fill any gaps
par Raffaele R•
Considering the contents of the second and third course, this was too basic.
par Artyom V•
Very confusing course for those who have no previous experience in Java.
par Christian A H•
pretty good but expected more of helping writing own programs
par Unnar T B•
Not a difficult course but teaches you much about Java.
Decent Introductory course for someone who is a newbie.
par Abhishek K•
The explaining part could have been better.
par Nabil A B G•
If you are a beginner in OO not recommend .
par Mustafa H K•
uses older versions of java and eclipse
par Biswajit B•
content is good but PApplet is outdated
par Salman Q•
It could have been better.

Needs a bit of update.
par Mikhail K•
Not that bad

Did not like this course at all, it is not flexible at all when it comes to IDE choices and offers very little support when it comes to using IDE's such as Intellij. The course consists of core and support videos, the idea being that if you are competent enough you are able to tackle the assignment/projects at any point. If you feel like you need more help you can dip into the support videos. The problem with this is that the videos are not actually very good and the support in the forums are lacklustre at best. The end of course peer review is an absolute joke and literally has no value to the students what so ever. It's basically students grading eachother positively so that everyone can pass lol.
Things that need to improve:
- Outdated content and Java version, Course structure needs to change, support videos need to be more supportive and maybe incorporate a code as you go approach incrementally building up on concepts, more active lecturers on the forums.

Came from the predecessor specialization by Duke, which was really great. So I had high expectations for this course.
But this course introduces not much new (only some library using), no new programming concepts. I also didn't like the programming assignments (one "big" project). They were not challenging at all (much too easy), and also not really interesting (repetition and expansion of an assignment at Dukes). You are also not writing that much code, because you get too much from them, where you just have to add a little here and there.
Liked, that they divided the videos into different stages (core, concept challenge, when I struggled), so you only have to watch the videos, that you find necessary.
I hope the next course will be more interesting and challenging.

The lectures were too wordy and the lecturers tripped over their words too often (which wouldn't have made it so difficult to listen if the lectures hadn't been so wordy!). There was too much focus on high-level details of the course project and too little attention paid to technical details. This rendered the lectures simplistic, boring, and sometimes a waste of time. This felt like an introductory level course, made more difficult through poor teaching.
Also, the slick web interface was slightly difficult to navigate in comparison to other Coursera courses.
