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.

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.
por Akshat A•
Great material, well arranged course flow, willing teacher, and nice project snippets. More coding samples and projects could have been included.
por Umrao S R•
Very good to learn parallel programming in java. excellent to teach in simple way with good example and current scope touching description.
por Shady I•
The courses covers broadly the new synchronization primitives in Java8. It is very clear and demonstrative. It is very shallow though.
por Vitalii D•
Thank you for this course! Really interesting, but lacks the real world examples and has little number of tasks to complete.
por Nanditha K R•
The concepts are explained well. Quizzes and mini project has good details to understand the concept better.
por Abir M•
Could have had more demonstrations, or even examples for reference. Overall, it was a very good course.
por Marcin K•
More details on concurrency would be a huge benefit to course and students (even as optional material)
por Johannes D•
Good course that gave you a good overview. The code assignments code have been a little more advanced.
por Arun N•
Simple delivery, very manageable work load, and still something tangible to take away from the course.
por Ivan K•
It was useful and interesting course, however, I'd like to see more complicated practical tasks
por Xiao X•
-1 star due to the too-easy homework.
I wish the homework can be harder and more challenging.
por Fu S W•
it'll be perfect if mini projects can deeper test what we've learned in the class.
por Isaac A•
Enjoyed this course a lot! Wished the projects were a little more substantial

thanks to coursera.to give a simple way to solve parallel programming
por Prabhakar k•
i learn new way to do parallel programming in java.thanks to coursera
por Wei H•
the lecturer should wear black shirt to make the video more readable.
por Vishal V•
Great Learning and understanding the parallelism concepts in java
por satwik b•
please be more elaborate regarding programming assignments
por Prasanth R•
The homework was too simple, could use better examples.
por Cong X•
Overall informative but way too easy on the projects...
por Xiao L•
Programming assignments are a bit too easy
por vini g•
Would like more assignments and examples.
