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.

Thanks for the course materials! I'm getting a lot of new knowledges from the course for cs fundamentals. I'd like to suggest to have more concrete examples to explain many concepts like SPAN, signal and put, etc.

Great introduction to parallel programming. Lectures were clear, summaries were helpful, quizzes were not trivial, discussion forum is good, but the assignments' grading system could be improved.

I found the explanation of how to precisely code phasors lacking as the Thread stuff was already provided in sample code and never explained. Quite satisfied with the rest of the course though.

Excellent Course.I always wanted a good course on java concurrency and parallel programming.And finish->async, isolated, forAsync constructs are awesome.I have learnt much from this course.
創建者 Elias R•
Very good and comprehensive video lectures! Sometimes the auto-grader results from Coursera fluctuate from one submission to the other, but overall it was a really interesting course.
創建者 Valdas Ž•
Very useful course about parallel programming theory and practice.
Could be less examples with custom libraries instead of standard java features looking to practical usage at work.
創建者 Vaibhav G•
Very well structured, taught and paced course, I only wish it had a passing project which would have given us more hands on practice and insights to parallel programming.
創建者 Sebastiaan V•
The information found in this course is great. The first and second mini projects were of average difficulty, but the third and fourth mini projects were too trivial.
創建者 Naveen K•
Explanation of theory was best. But Assignments lacked clarity. For example, we might expect little more clarification about threads In order to use them effectively
創建者 Aykut B•
Instructor is awesome. However instead of sharing ready libraries for parallelism (like forall loop) in section 3, native codes should be used for forall loops etc.

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