This is a excellent course for Software architects, addressing all key areas needed in the field. Good content, definitely recommend this course for anyone aspiring to be a Software architect.
This course integrates the previous courses (Object oriented design and Design patterns) and applies the knowledge taught in those courses to real life problems. Highly recommended.

I am a bit disappointed. I did not mean, that the course is not useful, but most of the material is blurred, incoherent, out of the blue, and not presented well. Kruchten's 4+1 View has bad naming, blurry explanations, needs real examples. I asked for clarifications about the material on the forum for Week 2 six times (without answers). You had better check ATAM in the original papers (30+ pages) and Quality Attributes are foggy (Week 3). The solution for the last capstone assignment does not cover half of the assignment (Week 4). There are testing questions for not presented terms. But, the science that is behind the course (Kruchten's Views, UML, ATAM, Architecture types) are very useful, so for me (who never heard of half of them) taking the course worth it. I mean, the course showed me what needs to understand for becoming a better programmer.

Theory and useless UML. Not recommended for experienced specialists. Academic approach and no value

This course is easy. The part that is actually about the different software architectures is interesting, but not too deep. The course does not prepare you for final capstone assignment.

Basic, should have had more practice and real world examples
