Great into to Java, instructors have clearly put thought in to the format with the choose your own learning style videos, and additional coverage where it may be needed. These have been very helpful.

The course curriculum is well designed and teaches students the basic data structures needed to be a successful software engineer. The project is good, and the weekly assignments are challenging.

It is a decent course to learn different data structures in Java. I've learned a lot throughout this course. However, the biggest drawback is that it is an old course just like the previous one. A new decade already has started long ago and this course could give much more if it was updated in accordance with new versions of programs. For future students, please do so.

its very basic stuff , and uses not optimal solutions to coding challenges , which might be okay for basics , for example the spelling check/suggestion project algorithm is probably exponential in time complexity .

Still the first weeks only repetitions from the predecessor specialization. But better assignments than the first course and not only repetition.

Did not like this course at all, it is not flexible at all when it comes to IDE choices and offers very little support when it comes to using IDE's such as Intellij. The course consists of core and support videos, the idea being that if you are competent enough you are able to tackle the assignment/projects at any point. If you feel like you need more help you can dip into the support videos. The problem with this is that the videos are not actually very good and the support in the forums are lacklustre at best. The end of course peer review is an absolute joke and literally has no value to the students what so ever. It's basically students grading eachother positively so that everyone can pass lol.
Things that need to improve:
- Outdated content and Java version, Course structure needs to change, support videos need to be more supportive and maybe incorporate a code as you go approach incrementally building up on concepts, more active lecturers on the forums.

The videos are fine, but the instructions sometimes just confirm that the authors of the assignments are not very familiar with the OOP.
I am not able to upload my assignment screen prints to the course.

Environment programming is complicated to set up. I wasted a lot time just to configure the workplace.
