The course seemed to be very easy, I'd say even disappointingly easy, but then, when I started the final assignment, I realized that I was wrong. And it was so much fun developing filters.
This course, specifically the last week, really helps in gaining understanding of how the digital images are being processed on the back of a applications. Nice job tutors!

Worst course I took on Coursera so far! It was my first course I actually paid for and it turned out to be the least useful one. The small number of exercises and videos does not justify the high price of the course. It might have been ok if they had included the iOS parts also, but charging 70 EUR for the first part alone is grossly overpriced.

Basically a couple of guys have an unorganized discussion about swift. Little to no organization with poor coordination between lectures and quizzes.. Appears that there is no TA or course staff monitoring discussion boards... I am glad I didn't pay for the class... Disappointed though because I really wanted to learn Swift.

At first the presentations are really on a semi professional level (copy & paste codes, making errors without knowing the cause). They show a lot what can be done with swift but the never show/mention what it's really usefull for (no "real life" usage just snippets after snippets).
To few practical doings (mostly only quiz stuff)

Very old, I don't get why still is on Coursera...impossible to find people reviewing your assignment...this will lead to a not completion of the course. Material not sufficiently explained and poor.
What you will learn out of this course is a copy paste of exercises you will do during the weeks...very unsatisfying.
por Francisco J M•
Very disorganized. More than a course, it seems more like 2 students learning along with you. The lessons have 0 preparation and they come up with examples that do not work half of the time during the video itself. I do not recommend this course (and as a matter of fact, the entire specialization) to anyone.

After 97% of the work completed, I have to admit that this course is NOT GOOD. The instructor is not actually the professor himself, and they do lots of mistakes in the videos. You do not learn anything that helpful, and perhaps the actual Swift documentation is way more clearer than this course is.

Thank you for this course. It was interesting and helpful. Before.
But I failed. I got bad mark and I don't know why.
I have only one good comment. But I have 3 bad marks and only 2 good. I am a looser, i guess.
So I hate this course, this website, this review system and this world.
Thank you again.

It's not a university standard course. It's more like introduction to introduction DIY Swift. The videos are chaotic and lack explications, examples, exercises and practical assignments. Much better intro to Swift can be found on many youtube channels or just on swift documentation website.

I'm giving just a single star. I started this course with high hopes, bailed after the third quiz as I wasn't learning anything except how to pass the quiz. Sorry, but this was a major letdown to myself and two other colleagues who all signed up to take it together. We all bailed.

I am dropping the course.
1) One person talk to the audience...rather than 2 or 3 talking to each other
2) Volume and pic quality poor
3) Its going too slowly.....just not enough "meat" to get me engaged...esp if u compare to the course by Paul Hegarty Stanford

Course was the worst I have taken on Coursera. I wish I could have received a refund. The professors were hard to follow, laughed through mistakes and did not do a good job of walking through the course content. I would not recommend this course to anyone.
por Yvan B•
The initial lessons were rather chaotic. The idea was good, but the execution was not really good.
The significantly improved the quality for the second course so I assume that for a new iteration, the it will be better too.

```Please use Xcode 7 for this course. In the future, you can update your projects to Xcode 8 using Apple's source code migration tool.```2018 and please just accept the newer version of Xcode projects while students can.

This course is a rare example of how it`s not done. Presentation is unstructured.
Seems to be a student project where his professor "helps" along to check certain topics the student has to include to get a good grade.

The course is valid but the way in which the certification takes place does not work, I have been waiting for a month for me to evaluate the project and every month that passes I pay € 44 is really wrong!
por Viktor S•
I'm sorry but the presentations were very poor and unprepared.
The first quiz focused on rather unimportant and stuff which was NOT PRESENTED in videos, like keyboard shortcuts etc.
Do not recommend.

I enrolled only to find out that the course is for Swift 2 and uses an old version of Xcode, I would like to unenroll, and I'm giving this rating because this information should be stated clearly.
por Alok C•
Bad content and instructor. no logistic in place. if you are planning to pay to get certificate. I would suggest look else where. my $279 are stuck in here and they don't reply to forum posts.
por Younis S H A•
this is the worst course that i had take,
xcode version 7.3.1 project??
at least upload newer version so we can submit our assignment , i finished all weeks then i cannot submit my assignment
por Cesar P•
Teachers poorly prepared, explanations ambiguous, it seems that they didn't pay attention to examples and sound of the course.
I love Jack Wu written tutorials... way better than videos.
por Christian S•
I do appreciate the effort put into this course, but as a programming course it is not very didactic.
It lacks structure and even the names of classes chosen for the examples seem odd.
por Aleksey R•
Poorly prepared course. Lectutets do not have enough qualified to teach others. It's a shame to pay for this money. I do not expect this from the university of Toronto.
por Saugat T•
Lack of update on course. And the course is not properly managed in order. Also, due to the lack of enrollment assignment completion takes a lot more time.
por Olli W G•
Stuck on Swift 2, in a long dead version of Xcode - would be great if they could update the course - especially if they expect people to pay for it.
por Christian M•
Huge gap between videos and final assignment.
Videos should be edited, we are not interested in trials and errors of the instructors.
