Very useful course! Answers all my questions, helps a lot to understand the whole process of mobile development! THANK YOU for the opportunity to gain valuable skills in such an easy way of study!
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.

The feedback and grading systems are silly. Nobody follows the instructions in their submissions; no one seemed to give serious thought to the feedback they gave to others. The assignments are busywork. The first week is pretty obvious material, and everything is verbose. The videos in week 2 would be better but are sadly outdated, so a lot of things are now different with Android studio, e.g. it uses by default Kotlin instead of Java. Not very practical of a course, but a nice thought, and I'm sure it was good when it came out. Classes like this should be listed by date, honestly. You'll have better luck using YouTube for something like this.

Good: It was a good introduction to the building blocks for android apps. Bad: The instructor's videos were done with an old version of Android Studio. The videos should be re-done. Getting peers to review my app was really difficult. The source code is sent around, but the reviewer needs to build the project, and then run it on an emulator. I could not build some of the other students' work, and they couldn't all review mine. Can we submit an .apk file instead? Or at least specify a version of Android Studio to use, and any SDK's etc that need to be installed.

This course walks you through how to create some very specific programs, but doesn't do a good job of explaining why the code works. It only occasionally tells you what each line of code actually does. It's also using an outdated version of Android Studio, and does not tell you which version they're using, so some of the instruction is obsolete and does not work. Many of the questions on the quizzes are never covered in the lectures.

The content is excellent. God the pronunciation of the lecturer is horrible. I was very interested in this course but how i'm not happy with the way they presenting this videos. Even with the subtitles on, the pronunciation kills me, please do some necessary changes. Apart from that this course is amazing.
The course if well-organized and the instructors do a very good job. However, three weeks of slides and theory and then only the last two weeks of seeing code hardly makes the course project-centered in my mind. Also, requiring learners to upgrade to run an autograder on a quiz is ridiculous!

I really do not want to finish this course. Please remove from my courses. I signed up for it because it was a free course offered to me. It is very interesting but I am having a hard time following this course. I really need to focus on my current course Google It.

A fairly shallow look at the content, with delivery and comprehension sometimes limited by language issues.
The worst thing, though, is that unlike most Coursera courses, you CANNOT COMPLETE this course without paying. That's very disappointing.

I am very sorry to say that the course is very poor in english (speaking), too bad you do not teach the course in french this could be useful for a lots of french speaking students and better for the quality of the course.
The first courses are great.
Unfortunately, the course that covered the installation (week 2 - "create your first basic application with android studio") got me lost.

The videos are based on old version of android studio so its make it difficult to apply the concept in new version of android studio.

Coursera says this is a free course, but you have to pay at the end if you want to take the final quiz or get a certificate.

Outdated android studio (four years out of date) made it very difficult to apply to a modern system
The instructor's explanation is not orderly nor structured, and with a lot of 'noises'.
