I very much enjoyed this course. It gave a great introduction to Android programming for those who don't know any android programming to start with. I recommend this course as a place to start.

I've liked almost everything I've seen so far, but I have only done the 1st week, except for the submission of the design of my first app. I found it very useful, so I will enroll for the next time this course opens.

The course is great, instructions are very clear, some commands changes in new updates of Android Studio so that makes instructions confusing, but there isn't anything which can't be solved by googling it.

This course is exceptionally well. This is more friendly just because it is project centered and this makes it more interactive to learn. Thanking to mam too who makes that course more interactive.

It was a good course to start learning Android. I have learned many new things through this course period. But I think a little update to course content would be beneficial for new students.

I feel the videos needs to be updated - using the latest version of android studio.A session on how to add videos to the app I feel needs to be added.

Very well explained and demonstrated.

You should update the course codes. Many coding techniques are replaced or deprecated on latest android studio versions.Also create a button for reporting an assignment or a review.

It was a good course overall, Dr. Virginie Galtier is great instructor and she tries to explain the lessons very well , however I had a hard time to understand Michel Ianotto.

Teaching is good but at the end of the course, the last consolidated quiz is locked, which is quite disappointing and every time asking to upgrade to the certification.

Beginner friendly and Easy to Learn course.The instructors code projects from scratch,which is always a positive.The forum is very helpful(in case you have any doubt).

could not run all examples, perhaps my Android Studio had a newer Version and my Notbook had trouble with the support of test phones.

The exxplanations were very good.

It was a nice course but I have a just one suggestion that speed of teaching by tutor should be little less.
