This is a great course in parallel programming. The videos were very clear, summaries reinforced the video material and the programming projects and quizzes were challenging but not overwhelming.

Great course. Introduces Parallel Programming in Java in a gentle way.\n\nKudos to Professor Vivek Sarkar for simplifying complex concepts and presenting them in an elegant manner.

Instructor is awesome. However instead of sharing ready libraries for parallelism (like forall loop) in section 3, native codes should be used for forall loops etc.

Introduction to theoretical concepts was good, but not very deep. The exercises didn't really contribute much to my understanding of the course material in general.

This course explain the concepts in a great way but the exercises
needs to be more rich with problems to enhance our understanding to the concepts.

A great course, but I think it would be even better if only the structures from Java 8 were used, and not the functons build by the Rice University.

Great material, well arranged course flow, willing teacher, and nice project snippets. More coding samples and projects could have been included.

The courses covers broadly the new synchronization primitives in Java8. It is very clear and demonstrative. It is very shallow though.

Thank you for this course! Really interesting, but lacks the real world examples and has little number of tasks to complete.

More details on concurrency would be a huge benefit to course and students (even as optional material)

Good course that gave you a good overview. The code assignments code have been a little more advanced.

Simple delivery, very manageable work load, and still something tangible to take away from the course.

It was useful and interesting course, however, I'd like to see more complicated practical tasks

-1 star due to the too-easy homework.
I wish the homework can be harder and more challenging.

it'll be perfect if mini projects can deeper test what we've learned in the class.

Enjoyed this course a lot! Wished the projects were a little more substantial

the lecturer should wear black shirt to make the video more readable.

Course is interesting, but lacks in contents: just few patterns are explained, and few concepts about parallelism, and there are very little details about further algorithms. Assignments, projects in particular, are quite useless or incredibly easy, or need usage or knowledge of libraries not explained/used in course, and included in "optional readings". Lessons are really clear (bravo! to the Professor), but quite short, since whole course doesn't reach 2 hours of lesson. I definitively think that course can be improved with more contents.

Lectures were adequate to understand the basic concepts/syntax and where and how to use them, but did not go deep into the underlying working.
The mini projects weren't that helpful since the assignments were the same examples as shown in the lecture, and the TODOs were generally just a couple of lines, leaving us with with little to do.
By the end of the course, I got to know the different Java util classes to use to for parallelism.
