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. ☺

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.

One suggestion i give to you that, please level of difficulty increase in a way that the learner not face to much thing in a single assignment. So, create assignment like that learner learn less thing but accurately. For example in this assignment you only build a relations between classes and marker on a map for only CityMarkerMap.java class and in the next module you implement LandMarker.java and so on. So, please this is my request in the future make assignments in a way that the Learner less thing but efficiently and accurately.

While the material is relevant, the exercises required too much specific knowledge that was not discussed in lecture. For an experienced programmer, most of the exercises were easy, but I admit I had to look ahead on two of the projects because the instructions were too lacking. The final project was too open ended and made me not want to finish this course.
Overall, I would not recommend this course.

Would have been great seven years ago...but the course requires you to use Java Applets, which are discontinued with good reason. This means running Java 8, which can create numerous further errors for most editors.

If you think this is an introduction to Java programming language you are wrong.What do you want? Do you want teach us to use Processing or teach us to program in Java?
par Farhan H P•
This course is very hard to follow, you are not building the program from scratch. But instead they force you to learn Processing module independently by yourself
par PATLOLLA S R•
They taught the outdated module (i.e)PApplet which is included till java8 version ,from later version that module was not included in java software(like java12).
par Nikolay K•
Almost useless course. The lessons have nothing in connection to assignments. Waste of time.
par Javier P•
You are teaching with java JDK 8, which is completely obsolete and out of date.
too fancy and the structure is not very clear. Not very much learned.

I don't know about course content but this is for coursera platform
par Jay O•
Too much complicated and high level at an intermediate level
par Morteza T•
This course is too basic and appropriate for the beginners.
par DEVESH S•
Course content is limited, all OOP topics are not covered

The peer review assignment part is really

Course not updated to latest standards.

in the beginning of the course i thought i'll get a good experience as usual on coursera, but i was wrong ...
a lot of things >> to be introduced in next course
confusing data types & working with things i don't know about it.
you've said that, anyone with basics of programming could pass this course and after 6 months i couldn't.
please be sure about the prerequisites next time.
Out of date material that leads to a lot of errors when trying to do the assignments on current technology. Very unfortunate. The only positive is that you can still watch the videos for the theoretical aspects.

The course materials seem to have been made over 10 years ago(on Java 6) and there doesn't seem to be a way to run them anymore.
