The course is fairly advanced and you would need to review the materials many times to understand the concept. The assignments are definitely fun and not as straightforward as other courses.

Superb study material. Learnt a lot during this course. I am not much into mathematical stuff, but got a hang of how to break problems and improve efficiency through parallelism.

The assignment could be optimized and avoid to be more academic since it may make student lost focus and spend too much time on the question itself rather than the parallel programming

Its a very good course! perhaps the in the practice code, before jumping into the problems they can provide a couple of simple examples/questions such that the main ideas are learnt.

Very challenging course, the assignments are more about practising using parallel programming, would be better to design an assignment to implement the parallel programming.

For this course you should have Advanced English level. Cause sentesce construction is so difficult and words so unusual that i had to some times google what i have to do.

Very good course overall on the basics of parallel programming in scala. Would have been nice to talk a bit more on the low level setup (parallel and task construct code).

Really good course covering some of the fundamentals of parallel programming, though for me I was hoping it would go into some of the Scala specifics a little more

Assignments are focused on problem-solving rather than the importance of parallelism, missing the point of the lecture. It is a Scala course, so it is always fun!

Good course but scala understanding is required for this course. So please register for prior course in the certification task to easily complete this course.

Assignments are too easy compared to 2 previous courses. I've been asked lot less than been given. And did not grasp everything in the lectures at the end.

Good explanations, relevant assignments.
But too small, too little graded assignments as for subject. Be better if the assignments has less starter code.

I can be further improved if the class can touch on design patterns using Future and Actor, in addition to the data structure oriented materials.

Time to complete exercises might not be completely assessed. Some lectures seem to technical without any correspondence with real problems.

Really a great course but with a heavy work for the duration. If others courses are followed in parallel, there's no time to loose

Very good course. Conc-list was brilliant.
Automated correction tool could do with more verbosity on failed test cases.

Presentations were presented well and the assignments were interestingly varied but quite challenging for the newbie.

Interesting course but math part is too academic and boring. It'll be more useful if focused only in real use cases.

After a rather confusing and dissatisfying first week, the course picked up pace nicely in the latter weeks.

Overall the course was really good. I think the first 2 courses explained things a little bit better though.

The course is good but is not focused on scala features. It is more generic parallel programming approach.

Insightful, though I am not sure if in non R&D/Academia settings the knowledge here can easily be applied.

The homework assignments are a bit hard, they require a lot of concentration time to make some progress.

Good course. The assignments should focus on the parallel programming itself instead of language stuff.

Very interesting course, I would recommend. I always wanted to learn about Scala parallel collections.

Good class but sometimes the exercises seemed unnecessarily complicated for explaining the concepts.

Lectures are very informative. I like all four assignments. They are well-designed and interesting.
