Wonderful course. It can enhance tour knowledge and give opportunity to explore more about design patterns. There are wonderful examples, assignments and quiz. I would highly recommend this course.
This course was not easy, especially when you have zero knowledge on subject. But it is very helpful subject and will certainly be a plus for you career in software development.

Pros - Simple explanations for some of the most used design patterns. Quick guide for daily use.
Cons - Requires some Android programming knowledge. Completing previous course 'Object Oriented Design' helps.

Very rich content. However, i don't think the community reviewing system for assignments
is the best, if there is a more controlled reviewing option can be used, i think it will be better.

I learned both fundamental and how to apply design pattens. Especially having assignment is a great merit of this course. I wish it would have more assignment for each design pattern.

Quite a good course to understand the fundamental design patterns that we can apply in software design. Liked the amount of student indulgence that is encouraged in the project.
By Farsan R•
Good for people already know the stuffs and need some kind of brush up. Otherwise have to be willing to study contents from web to truly understand the patterns.
By Hasan A S•
good but needed more practical explanations for design patterns , most of the course listing and explaining in general about different types of design pattern

Awesome learning experience alongwith examples.
Smaller, simpler and more number of code writing & design making exercises can make it more awesome.

The demo could have been also possible with any simple IDE, as installing and configuring Android Studio could be irrelevant for some students.
By Pablo P•
I really enjoyed how the concepts are explored. My humble suggestion is to increase the level of examples in the code smells section.
By DHANANJAY S•
Very good course content and appropriate assignments. Having more examples before assignment would help little more in my opinion.
By Morten D•
The videos and the tasks were very good, but I dislike the dependency on other students to progress on the course.

It was a very educative and engaging MOOC. Thank you University of Alberta for such a great opportunity
By Vishwas K•
Well explained & organized. Good coding assignments to better understand & retain the learnt topics.
By Apurv A S•
The course is excellent. It covers a lot of design patterns that we may use.
By Nagabushan P•
Very Interactive and like the way tutors relate to the real world examples!
By Wilson T M•
It's a good course but you do not have the support of a coach (instructor).
By Davis A•
Powerful though I think more updated example could give a richer expierence
very good course, is a must if you are serious about Object Oriented Design
By Vinay K S K•
Good Learning but too much to cover and easy to loose track of the topic.
By Sakshee S•
very good teaching skills. i understand most of the things very fast.
By Hany S•
Really useful course, it let me understand the patterns deeply
By Ignas P•
Content was good, but some "starter code bases" were missing.
By Stephan V•
Excellent content. I wanted to see more coding assignments.
By Rateb K•
Very Insightful! Not a fan of the peer-graded assignments
By Максим Р•
Nice course, but slightly faster than I wanted it to be
