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.

Heavy theory but poor practical. Need more enhancement for the next time.

Focusing more on theoretical parts

Good overview, but less details

Good part is that I have learnt quite a lot of things from this course and I enjoyed it. Not so good part is that I don't get answers to my questions I post on the forums, graders are not working correctly and I don't know the correct answers to the quiz (once I passed it, it would be nice to know the answers to the ones I answered incorrectly). I feel cheated because I paid for the course, but it makes me feel like I wasted my money a bit.

I spent 6 days on this course, and I feel it is not worth the time. One of the problems is that the lectures are overly basic, and the mini projects are not challenging, at least not in a helpful way (quizzes are sometimes challenging due to some concepts not covered in the lectures at all). I guess the instructor did not really spent much time preparing the materials and assignments.

Please make the homework better.
